We created World of Snacks and our International Snack blog over a year ago. Our goal for developing this business was to be able to sample snacks from our diverse childhoods, explore unique flavors and treats, and make them available for purchase all across the world. One of the treats that inspired us to go into the snack business was the Kinder Surprise, from what we though was from Germany. So this week our international snack blog is in Germany?
The reason we ended the previous statement with a question mark is Kinder, although German for children, is not from Germany. Today the Italian luxury snack group, Ferrero, owns Kinder. So we are actually reviewing an Italian snack! Why did we mention we sought out the Kinder Surprise? Because this tasty childhood treat we desire is actually banned form the USA! Something about putting small toys inside a chocolate candy is a little dangerous, well according to the FDA anyway. So trying to fill the void that the Kinder Surprise Egg has left with us we have been sampling anything we can get our hands on with a Kinder logo. Late last year we took a look at Kinder Friends. Today, the Kinder Happy Hippo Biscuits are going under review.
So before we give our review of this Kinder cookie, let’s recap a little of what we have sampled over the last 13 months. We will keep it short. We have sampled many, many, many snacks from a total of 30 countries. We wanted to start our review of the Kinder Happy Hippo Biscuits with a little bit of our background so the next statement is taken seriously. The Kinder Happy Hippo Biscuits are by far, the best snack we have tasted from anywhere in the world! We enjoyed this treat so much that all testers involved were actually smiling will consuming the biscuit. The crispy wafer biscuit taste like a sugar cone that would generally hold soft serve ice cream. It provides a firm, hollow crunch that is very pleasant. Inside, two of the finest tasting cream fillings we have encountered. One is milk and the other cocoa. The meringue undercoating adds a subtle flavor and holds the additional fragments of chocolate on the exterior. All the independent ingredients come together to create a snack that is truly special.
