Egyptians react to Khloe Kardashian’s ‘Snowball Cookies’ reference – here’s why
Social media users in Egypt took to the intenet by storm when they heard that Khloé Kardashian referred to their traditional Egyptian Eid dessert as “Snowball Cookies.”
Khloe was showing off her cooking skills in the Christmas special episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians when she asked her fans to try “a new recipe” of what she called “Snowball Cookies”.
What may have been missed by many is that "Snowball Cookies" are actually similar to the Egyptian sugar cookie, named "Kahk."
Across the world, variations of "Kahk" exist, including Traditional Mexican Wedding Cookies and Melting Moments Cookies.
Still, the incident prompted Egyptians to poke fun at it, saying their traditional dessert now sounds fancier, and more gourmet.
“I don’t know how to tell you this, but I just got to know that our ‘sugar-coated Kahk’ is now being known as ‘Snowball cookies’,” wrote one Facebook user.
Fans were also laughing at the fact that Khloe, who has become somewhat of a fitness guru, is posting a recipe for Kahk, a delicious dessert that can easily make its eaters gain weight.
“I’m glad they will start getting fat, just like us,” wrote another Facebook user in mockery.
“Kahk? that was longtime ago, its now called: Snowball cookies,” another post read.
