I tried two of the Whoppers malted milk ball Easter flavors - vanilla milkshake and blueberry. I hear there is an orange milkshake version out too, but the thought doesn't even entice me so I didn't seek them out. A year ago, I reviewed the awesome Reese's Whoppers. Like the Reese's, these feature a flavored coating in place of the original chocolate.
The vanilla milkshake flavor is okay. It really doesn't taste very vanilla. The flavor is buttery and salty, and has more in common with white chocolate than vanilla. The blueberry flavor makes me happy. When I opened the tiny milk carton and smelled inside I was reminded of Smurf Berry Crunch cereal. Children of the 80s may remember this wonderful cereal inspired by the fictitious Smurf berry. The flavor of Smurf Berry Crunch cereal was not comparable to any natural substance. It was sweet and berry-inspired and when I was 8 years old, it was awesome. It still holds a soft spot in my heart, therefore the blueberry Whoppers are a winner in my book. As an added bonus, they are Smurf colored. Coincidence?
