The traditional "snowball" snack, from Germany's Rothenburg town, is made with natural butter and aluminum-free baking powder, fried, and then coated with sugar in various flavors. The 8-10 centimeter diameter balls are crisper than Rice Krispies treats, not as sweet, and enjoyed after being broken apart with a small wooden hammer. With over 300 years of history, this snack was popularized in Asia after appearing in a Korean soap opera whose leading couple always buys a snowball and eats it after crushing it with a small wooden hammer to blow off steam. --By Niang Chen, translated by Chen Deh-I
