These are one of those Halloween candies that I see around every year, yet I have no idea who makes them or what they’re called. When I’ve tried looking it up I just get online I get “bulk foil pumpkin balls”, which isn’t the best of names. I found these Madelaine Halloween Crisp Balls on the same trip to Michael’s where I encountered the Skybar Zombie Food. I immediately knew I wanted to review these for the blog, but I was also excited to finally have a name for these! Halloween Crisp Balls.
The appearance of these Halloween Crisp Balls is what immediately catches your eye. They are beautiful! The bright orange color immediately catches your eye, and the face of the Jack ‘O Lantern is so classic and appealing. It feels a tad vintage, and I really like that. I even love the little green leaves they put at the pumpkin’s top. So cute! They’re about the size of large marbles, so the pieces are neither to big nor too small.
The foil comes off easily in one piece if you take your time with it. The chocolate is a middle brown color, the color is not especially rich and it’s a bit waxy looking. You can see hints of the crisps in there. Its smells sweet and chocolatey, with a note of caramel. The texture is the first thing I notice, it’s smooth and the crisps are especially crunchy. The chocolate is very sweet and has lots of notes of cream and butter. It’s not the most chocolatey chocolate, but it’s still really yummy and certainly a great snacking chocolate. The combination of the size, texture and flavor makes these very irresistible.
I can see these looking absolutely adorable in a candy dish, or even at a candy bar for an event. They’re so colorful, festive and pretty! Even having some with my coffee, I felt as if that wasn’t enough of a way to showcase them. Yes, it tastes great, but I felt a way to capture it’s eye appeal. Beautiful and delicious, these candies are a great find. I hope to see them around more places soon.
