Raffaello

One of my favorite snacks back in Italy is known as Raffaello. Basically it's a crunchy ball filled with white chocolate and almond, covered in grated coconut.

It looks just like Ferrero Rocher, but in white. I'm sure you can find this being sold in KLIA (if you're Malaysian), I don't know whether it's sold anywhere else.

About the price, I'm not so sure either. But I can guarantee it's MUCH cheaper in Italy even after doing the conversion.

So yeah, every time I go back to Dani's hometown, that's what I usually do; stocking up Raffaello as much as I can.

Though eating too much of these will cause you getting XXL in no time, for me it's pretty hard to resist snacking it once every few minutes.

It comes in different kinds of packs. Some are really fancy, specially made for Christmas or other occasions in Italy.

Usually we just unpack it and serve on the dining table, nicely arranged, just enough to lure anyone taking them one by one. Italians love to decorate their dining tables with fresh fruits, candies, and snacks.

And for those who are conscious with the ingredients, it can easily be read as long as you have a dictionary. If you buy them in your own country, it should be written in your language.

Also, no, this is not the kind of snack you buy to show off to others. In Italy, it's too common that anyone can have it. In Malaysia, normally we think anything imported is classy. So, here I say it, eating this doesn't make you look classy, it's just another snack for anyone to enjoy.
