People who've tried it say that this is very very similar to the Israeli 
sweet called "krembo" which was my infamous substitution for "sherbet lemon" 
in the Harry Potter books. Except krembos are supposedly larger, with a 
little less chocolate, and a crumbly bottom. Kind of like an unbaked 
meringue dipped in chocolate sitting on a biscuit. Krembo literally means 
"[something with] cream inside of it".
