Fong On Can't Go Wrong Tofu Pudding with Red Beans, Grass Jelly, and Taro Balls: Fong On is a small family-run tofu shop on Division Street in Chinatown, right next to the Manhattan Bridge. I found out about it from a profile in the New York Times a few months ago, describing how the long-standing neighborhood tofu shop, which had been open for 80 years, had recently relocated and reopened after the son took over the family business. They sell freshly made soy milk, rice cakes, and doufu hua, all traditional Chinese favorites. Doufu hua is kind of like getting frozen ... (read more) 3.5/5.0

Berkeley Bowl Dark chocolate Malt Balls: I wish malt balls were shelf stable so they could be purchased without any coating. Until then, they seem so only exist in chocolate covered balls, as is this bulk snack from Berkeley Bowl. The chocolate coating is significantly thicker than that found on Whoppers or Maltesers, but as a side effect, the predominant flavor and texture is that of dark chocolate. When the chocolate layer is consumed first, the malt interior is found to be crunchy unlike the melt-in-your-mouth consistency of mas... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Uegaki Beika Co Matcha Uguisu Balls: Uguisu Balls are a classic Japanese snack of bite-sized rice and wheat balls whose appearance is meant to mimic plum blossom buds. To me, they looked more like the shiny round acorns the two sisters chase after while exploring their new home at the beginning of Totoro. In this case, a sticky sugary coating envelops each piece, making it possible for green tea powder to stick to its surface. Slightly soft yet crunchy, sweet and bitter, this snack blends opposites to mixed success; the matcha... (read more) 2.5/5.0

365 Organic Peanut Butter and Cocoa Balls cereal: A less sweet, mildly flavored version of childhood favorites. More chocolate than peanut butter. Less guilt-inducing but unsurprisingly less satisfying. Still, a decent choice. 3.0/5.0

Chiki Snack cheese balls: This is the first in a series of #munchpak snack reviews. Chiki balls are puffed corn and rice cheese balls from Indonesia. While the packaging is foreign, the flavor is all too familiar, with a styrofoam texture and ingredients like \"flavor enhancers\" and MSG. In some ways, I take comfort that perhaps anywhere you go in the world, you'll come across this junk food standard. But if you really think about it, it's a little depressing. 2.0/5.0

Maltesers malt balls: milk chocolate covered malt balls from Australia. Originally marketed as a lighter way to enjoy chocolate due to its honeycomb center, which is more air than actual product. This is where Maltesers falls short, particularly compared to the American equivalent, Whoppers; the inside is not substantial enough to have a satisfying melt-in-your melt malt experience, and the chocolate is your typical mass manufactured milk chocolate. About what you would expect from a vending machine classic. 2.5/5.0
