REVIEW: Herr’s Orange Cream Pop Snack Balls

Herr s Crunchy  N Sweet Orange Cream Pop Snack Balls

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!

Conclusion:

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.

  1. I think if they had the expected color of an orange creamsicle, they would be harder to distinguish from Cheez Balls.

    1. That’s a good point. Herr’s certainly knows how to color these if they want. The s’mores flavor is a chocolaty brown while the cotton candy flavor is a vibrant pink and blue.

      1. @MODOK. You need to get new glasses. The cotton candy ones are ONLY blue. I should know. I bought 15 tubs at Big Lots. 😛

    1. My whole comment disappeared. But wanted to know if you still have Orange Cream puffs, cotton candy, smores, funnel cake , I always was able to stock up at Ollies, now all he has is Pumpkin, which I also purchased. Would love to order these if possible, or tell me about another outlet that carries them, I once found them in a Dollar Plus store but no more I have shared so many with my friends and when I promised to get them some, that is when I could find no more. Talk about addiction, omg the ruff of my mouth is sore from eating so many. Orange Cream I admit was or is my favorite. Please tell me where to locate if available
