- Eyebrows! Chocolate! Crispy crunchies!
First of all, they're shaped like a hippo that appears to be stalking you from a swamp of chocolate. Look at the cute, skeptical eyes and the tiny tail! They even have eyebrows. Adorable. Secondly, the hippos are filled with both sweet, milk-flavored cream and Nutella. When you bite into the light, super crispy wafer, the chocolatey insides melt all over your mouth, mixing together with the wafer and crunchy bits that coat the bottom half of their bodies. They look small and unassuming, but they're surprisingly rich—if you take too big of a bite, you'll end up looking like a dog trying to get peanut butter off the roof of its mouth. You don't devour the hippo, you savor the hippo.
They sell them at World Market down at Pike Place and I've also seen them at George's Sausage and Delicatessen. They're usually about $4 for a box a five, but like I said, they're little crispy chocolate bombs, so they're worth the nearly $1 a piece price. It's been a week, right? You deserve a treat! Go eat a hippo.
