Alcohol Arrows

Name: Strela Podolskaya
Brand: Roshen
Place Purchased: Jon’s Market (Los Angeles)
Price: $2.99
Size: 7 oz
Type: Filled Chocolate

There were two packages of this candy at the market. One was called “Robin Hood’s Arrows” or something like that, but the chocolate looked a bit fuzzy, whereas this package look shiny and fresh. I figured it was the same thing. So I’ve just been calling these Arrows. I finally found them on the very nice Roshen website where they describe them as “cone-shaped sweets with chocolate coating, filling cream and fondant filling with the additive of alcohol and cognac.”

Whooooo! When they say alcohol, these Ukrainian’s aren’t kidding!

The chocolate is very smooth and not too sweet, but the filling is smooth and creamy but absolutely too sweet. Then there’s the alcoholic kick that seemed to make everyone cough.

I think I’d prefer a larger chocolate proportion to the filling. Overall I found them to be tasty, but too sweet (not too alcoholic though).

If I were doing a fancy cake, I might use these little guys as a decorative, edible garnish. They seem perfect as a compliment to a smooth, fluffy white cake.

Rating: 6 out of 10.
