Rated 5 out of 5 by IdahoNana15 Glad I ordered
I was skeptical and almost did not order because I felt at $6 each it was a little high priced. But soooo glad I did. These are so big and so good, worth EVERY cent. Will order again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sheilatoes Too little cake
Bought this for holiday dessert. Disappointed!
The Snowball was almost all creme.
Would have been great if there was more cake inside all that creme.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nurse4life I expected better
I receive Norm Thompson catalogs routinely. I have often looked at the food items but have not ordered previously. In the Holiday catalog the one item that others seem to rave positively about are the "Snow Balls". They remind me of the snow balls that once sold in the grocery stores (Hostess, I believe). As a child I loved them and to have a package in my Christmas stocking was a huge treat. This year I decided to order them especially for my husband who loves what he calls "sweet snack foods" (i.e. "Little Debbie" products, etc.).
The product came in a cooled container and they looked beautiful. I let them come to room temperature, fixed a fresh pot of coffee, and when my husband came inside from working in the cold - I served him his favorite coffee and a "Fresh" Snowball on a Christmas plate. He was in awe and I stood there while he took the first bite. I was expecting a bright smile and lots of "oohs and aah's". Unfortunately he sat the plate down and said the "cake is hard, and the icing is gooy and overtakes the cake". In otherwords, he felt there was more icing than cake. He did not eat another. I tried one later in the day and felt the same way. The cake was tasted "old" and rather musty. I ended up throwing them away. What a shame for the cost of what I thought would be a great addition to our holiday sweets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissTrickey13 Chocolate Cocoanut Snowballs
We really love these, they are so good and chocolatey. We usually split one between us, they are huge. This is the second year I have ordered them. This year, when I opened the box, the snowballs looked like the box had been shaken hard and there was not one intact snowball. I was dismayed! I called the customer care line and told them that my snowballs had been demolished in shipping and I offered to send a photo. The nice lady that I talked to told me that there was no need to do that; however, there were no snowballs in stock at that time. I received an offer of a refund, but opted for snowballs as soon as they were restocked. It wasn't too long, before I had the snowballs and they were in perfect condition. Yummy. That is the kind of service I have had from Norm Thompson the two times that I have had a problem. Thanks for the wonderful service and I recommend Norm Thompson for whatever you need and especially chocolate cocoanut snowballs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yum6 Taste great.
We loved the coconut snowballs so much we ordered more. They are exactly as described. Great for parties. They would even be great for a fancy meal with friends or family. What ever the occasion, it would be a perfect treat after a meal or anytime. What more can I say, they are yummy.

This was too sweet and it was really difficult to eat. Wish I had not spent the money.
