Why I Bought It:
Imagine an ice cream cake cone that's been filled with Nutella and coated in chocolate cookie crumbs. That's what these hippos remind me of most. What I didn't expect was how much of that filling there is. There seems to be almost enough to spread on toast. And the snack is also one of the messiest I've ever eaten. I consumed mine over the sink. Buy them for your kids at the peril of your upholstery, your carpet, their clothes, or anything else nice you'd rather keep chocolate off of.
