Considering all the reviews we’ve had here @ChocolateMission, I was most shocked when I realised that Boyer’s Mallo Cup has never undergone our constructive scrutiny. Jim reviewed Boyer’s Smoothie PeanutButtercups, but never the original marshmallow filled option, so today I am going to rectify this oversight with a gift from American Soda.

Boyer was founded in 1936 by brothers Bill and Bob Boyer, who wanted to supplement their income during the Great Depression. They started off selling fudge door-to-door, but soon expanded and, in 1940, brought out their most notable product, the Mallo Cup.

Inside the bright yellow wrapper lies two large shiny milk chocolate cups with a generous marshmallow filling. The cups give off a sweet coconut scent, very much like a Bounty bar, although it does not particularly have any recognisable coconut flavour. The marshmallow has a pleasant taste, but not one that I could actually define. This is most likely due to the fact that all the added flavourings are artificial.

The milk chocolate coating is of average quality but the base it very thin. As a result the marshmallow from one of the cups began to leak out of the bottom and became a rather sticky messy affair. The marshmallow is of the silky smooth and moist crème variety as opposed to the plump squidgy white and pink confectionary we’re more used to in the UK. While proper marshmallows are quite filling, marshmallow crème is less so, but the size of the cups is substantial and does the job quite nicely.

Mallo Cups are probably not something I would recommend in the summer months as they are likely to melt all over you. When the whether is cool, however, they are worth a try.
