Review: Hostess - Sno Balls

Hostess Sno Balls only come in packs of two fluffy pink balls that kinda make me think of ear muffs but they're actually coconut and marshmallow covered chocolate cakes with a creamy filling.

They're typically about $1.50 or $1 on sale.

I don't know if this is the same for everyone but I think of Sno Balls as road trip food because I typically see them at gas station convenience stores.
They have that squishy soft marshmallow texture that just begs to be squeezed a little (but not a lot unless you want to clean up bits of cake and cream off your hands).

Each Sno Ball is basically a Hostess cupcake sans the frosting but covered in marshmallow and coconut. I have no idea why they're pink instead of white like actual snow balls.
I'd probably eat these maybe one a year but they're pretty good. A nice blend of textures and flavors with coconut, marshmallow, chocolate cake, and creamy (no actual cream) filling. Obviously not something to try if you hate coconut though.
