Tunnock's Snowballs are a round ball of soft, foamy, glossy marshmallow that is dipped in chocolate and coated with white shredded coconut.
The marshmallow is made with egg white and syrup.
The snowballs are similar to Tunnock's Teacakes, but minus the shortbread base, and with the addition of the coconut covering.
The Canadian province of Newfoundland is a large importer of the cookies.
For the company history, see Tunnock's Teacakes.
Literature & Lore
In 2009, Scottish author Craig McGill wrote a poem dedicated to Tunnock's Snowballs, in thanks for the large donation that Tunnock's made to support the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum that would open in 2010:
Fair fa' coconut sprinkled face,
Great chieftain o the teacake-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
mallow, choc, or cream:
Weel are ye wordy of a grace
As lang's my arm.
Lawrence, Sue. Life is sweet. Edinburgh, Scotland: The Scotsman. 12 June 2005.
