Recently I have become semi-addicted to Potbelly Chocolate Malts. (Is it possible to become semi-addicted? That’s beside the point…). Potbelly chocolate malts are just the right thickness and have just the right amount of malt powder. There’s something about the taste of malt powder where you can easily have too little or too much; and the Potbelly malt lands right in between.
The thickness of the malt is also excellent. It takes some effort to suck it up through a straw, but not too much effort. Again, they’ve achieved that critical balance.
Oh, and who can forget the cookies? Two minature shortbread cookies on the straw, mmm tasty.
My only complaint is the size. It’s a smaller size cup, but it’s still too much. After finishing an entire malt I feel like I’ve eaten way too much. I need about three-quarters of the current size. That would be the right amount. I realize I could throw it away after I’ve eaten 3/4; but wouldn’t that be a waste??
