I like malt. But we all know that actual malts are way too heavy on the calories. So I don't drink them very often. But I still like malt. And I remembered that, as a kid, I used to eat malted milk balls. So I began a quest for those little treasures.
There are several brands of malted milk balls still on the market. But I was looking for just the right balance of chocolate and malt. And that balance was heavy on the malt and light on the chocolate. Because it was the malt flavor I was after. Many manufacturers go too heavy on the chocolate and you can't appreciate the malt. I consumed many malted milk balls in my quest for that perfect balance.
My search has hit pay dirt. For those of you who want the old-fashioned taste of malt, covered in a thin coating of chocolate, go to the store and pick up a box of Whoppers, "The Original Malted Milk Balls." They are manufactured by Hershey, and Hershey's got it right. The chocolate is there, but it doesn't overwhelm the malt flavor. They are just a little chewy, and packed with that flavor I remember from my youth. Give them a try.
