Every year Palmer Chocolate puts out some incredible Halloween treats; even though most people turn their nose up at Palmer bagged treats they are extremely tasty. The Chocolate Zombies are an interesting, individually wrapped chocolate treat that is safe to hand out to kids and doesn’t kill your candy budget. It is also a great thing to add to a piñata if you are looking for some inexpensive chocolate treats to add to it. The Chocolate Zombie is all milk chocolate; the bottom part is a coffin and there is a white zombie laying on top of it. Some kids see it and think that it is a skeleton but it is indeed a zombie.
The taste is great and even though it is a combination of white and regular milk chocolate there isn’t a flavor difference to it. These are also something that you can add to a graveyard themed cake if you are looking for coffins or open caskets to add to your scene, since they are made from chocolate you don’t have to worry about removing them from the cake when you serve it. If you are someone that likes to stick with an “all edible” theme so younger kids don’t accidentally swallow something that they shouldn’t these are a nice way to stick with the theme without sacrificing taste or visual appeal.
This is a newer product to the Palmer family of products so there is a chance that not every store is going to get it in stock. Most of the time I can find these at a dollar store that carries Palmer chocolate at other times of the year as well as in larger quantities / bags at Wal-Mart. The cost per bag is about a dollar which isn’t bad. If you only have a couple of trick or treaters every year and you want something to make treat bags with, this makes for a nice add-in. Palmer has a lot of awesome Halloween chocolates to choose from but I love the look of these when they are unwrapped and used on cakes and cupcakes.
