What are Herr’s Orange Cream Pop Snack Balls?
I’m 70% sure this is how this product was developed:
“Ok, what flavor are we making these new orange crunchy balls?”
“How about orange?”
“Don’t be so obvious, Jim. Anybody else? Ideas? Anything? No? OK, orange it is!”
Hence, we have Herr’s Orange Cream Pop Snack Balls – orange cream-flavored, orb-shaped puffs.
How are they?
The aroma in the bag is straight-up, not-screwing-around-with-subtlety orange. After cracking it open, I left the room and could smell them when I walked back in. Not the Epcot Soarin’ orange grove mist variety, more like candy or soda. I liked it, but it’s hardcore fakey-fake.
Ironically, they’re not even orange – they’re cream-colored with orange flecks.
I expected the flavor to be a sweet/savory combo, since I associate the puff format with cheese, but these were all sweet with just the slightest hint of savory from the puff base.
The orange was much more laid back in taste than aroma. The cream was definitely present, along with a wheaty/baked flavor, which gave the whole thing a breakfast-cereal vibe. I thought about dumping them in milk, but it only occurred to me after I’d finished them all. Whoops.
Is there anything else you need to know?
No day-glo dust means no orange fingers. No one would even know these hands just pawed through an entire bag!
These were tasty, and a novel flavor I haven’t seen in this form. Not Epcot-orange, but a fun snack that’s worth a try. I binge-ate them.
