A radio host was talking about these cookies they have in New York City that are called malla bars and how they were the most delicious thing in the world. I probably have the name wrong, but she said they were quite popular in New York City and are just now working their way into Canada. The rest of the States, with the possible exception of some of New York's neighbors, apparently don't have these cookies.
Supposedly they have a marshmallow on top and can only be made in the cool season. For some reason the hot summer months are not conducive to malla bar construction.
What the hell are these things?
What do they taste like?
Will someone send me a couple?
Mallowmars is what I believe to be the correct spelling.
I will be happy to send you some. Please PM me your swamp address.
Malabar is the name for the southwest coast of India.
Mallomar is the name for a candy that one can only love if one first ate it as a child. It is cloying and has an offensive consistency. It is a candy which only a child could love, or an adult who first loved it as a child.
That bite mark on that chocolate cow pie, is what we call forensic evidence.
Got so excited about the thought of mallowmars that I didn't answer your other questions.
They are a glob of marshmallow on top of a graham cracker (a small round one) and coated with a very thin layer of chocolate. They are only available in the winter because the chocolate is so thin that they easily melt.
Personally, I like to freeze mine before eating - gives them a crunch. I haven't had them in years (gotta watch those calories nowadays), but I've seen them in the stores.

Speak for yourself little doggie.
sometimes you can get them with a layer of raspberry jam between the cookie and marshmallow
or a "little surpise" beneath the marshmallow.
BTW, anybody ever see the real marshmallow? I guarantee youd never eat that white stuff again if ya hadda gag some real marshmallow down in survival training.
You use it to coat mopani worms just before baking into a "baked worm alaska"
I have been enlightened. Thanks to all who participated in this thread. I would especially like to thank Green Witch and I appreciate her offer to send me some, but I am hesitant about sending her my address since I truly believe she has designs on my pitchfork.
I shall seek other methods of procuring the mallow bar.
Is that a pitchfork youre holding or are you just glad to see us.
They remind me a little of Moon Pies. Same sweet, empty calories--and yes, you need to have first been introduced to them in childhood. I still like them, calories and all.
I got my own pitchfork old man, and it's a lot sharper than yours.
Yes, Farmerman I have had the real thing, although my favorite form is the decorative Hollyhock.
My pitchfork will smash your pitchfork to pieces!
plant snot, I always called it.
Fella walks into a store in north Georgia and says:
I'd like a Moon Pie and a RC . . .
Fella behind the counter says:
You must be from Alabama
Now wait just a damned minute, what's that supposed to mean? 'Spose I ast you fer some spaghetti, would you ast me was I a Eye-talian?
Dunno, it ain't never come up.
'Spose I ast you fer a Polish sausage and some sarkraut, would you ast me was I a Ductchman?
Dunno, it ain't never come up.
Then how come when I ast you fer a RC an' a Moon Pie, you ast me am I from Alabama ? ! ? ! ?
Well, first off, this is a hardware store . . .
(Them boys in north Georgia do not entertain a high opinion of the mental stature of yer average Alabamian . . .)
Reminds me of Viva Puffs. I ate these so much as a kid, the very sight of them make me want to barf. But they used to be good....
ah yes, those are the ones with the jam, are those exclusive to we canadians?
