These Funnel Cake Snack Balls Will Give You Those Carnival Feels

This year, most, if not all, county and state fairs may have already been canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s no way to get ahold of your favorite carnival treats. Herr’s, for one, has Funnel Cake Snack Balls that add a unique twist to the all-time fair favorite.

Herr’s is undoubtedly famous for its cheesy snacks and potato chips. So, it wouldn’t be a surprise if this is the first time you’re hearing about its other product offerings. Well, as it turns out, these carnival-food-inspired snack balls have been around since 2018. Apparently, they’re making the rounds on the internet once again presumably because people are missing their annual trips to the carnival.

Herr’s Funnel Cake Snack Balls are a bite-sized version of your favorite carnival treat!

The snack balls have a similar texture to the brand’s famous cheese balls. Although they’re not as fluffy as the actual fried dough snack, they’re sweet with just the right amount of crunch. So, you’d still get that delightful taste of the carnival classic you love and miss with every bite. Plus, they’re gluten-free, so you can munch on them for days without feeling guilty.

 

Instagram user @junkfoodinthetrunk3 recently spotted the crunchy corn snacks at a Food Lion store, while @saucedjunkfood spotted them at Menard’s. The snack balls come in a six-ounce bag. As per the packaging, that should be enough for six servings with about 39 pieces each. We don’t know about you, but it seems pretty easy devouring the entire bag in just a single sitting.

Cotton candy popcorn (posted yesterday) and now @herrs.snacks funnel cake flavored snacks balls… it’s like all of the fairs in the USA are not cancelled this year! The fair is my favorite. Super upset that they’ve all been cancelled. Either way… better safe than sorry! I’ll just eat these and my cotton candy popcorn and reminisce. . . . #junkfood #junkfoodjunkie #junkfoodie #junkfoodlover #junkfoods #foodie #foodies #foodiesofinstagram #foodiegram #foodielife #foodiepics #food52 #snacktime #snack #yummy #yum #yummyinmytummy #yummyfood #foodporn #foodgasm #foodstagram #foodblogger #cottoncandy #popcorn? #carnival #fair #flexibledieting #flexibleeating #funnelcake #funnelcakes

. ? Cotton Candy 6.5 ? Funnel Cake 5.0 ? @herrs.snacks @menardshomeimprovement ? These looked way too fun to pass up. Hard to mess up cotton candy. Way easier of a flavor to nail so not surprised it’s the better of the two. But with funnel cake, you remove all the things that make funnel cake great (the powdered sugar, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, strawberries, whipped cream etc.) it’s a pretty boring flavor. So since these taste like fried dough, use them to dip in chocolate or whipped cream. Or put them in a bowl and treat them like cereal. But if you enjoy the texture and chew of cheese balls you should give these a shot as a little mix up. Fun to eat but we wouldn’t buy these again. #saucedjunkfood #junkfood #snackfood #snacks #foodreview #carbs #carbsarelife #groceries #foodblogg #foodbloggers #foodblogger #foodblogfeed #foodbeast #tasty #delish #foooodieee #phaat #yummy #yum #snacktime #quarantinelife #saltysweet #sweettooth #sweetsnack #snack #snacktime #snacktime? #saucedchips

Meanwhile, other Instagram users were also able to spot the snack at Five Below and Ollie’s in the previous years. Apparently, they’re not a limited-edition offering, so it’s safe to say that they’ll be available in stores all year round. You just have to know where to find them. Luckily, they’re also available on Instacart, so you can simply order them online.
