08:24 AM ET 08.23 | A possible fall-back job for Detroit Red Wing Henrik Zetterberg? [Zetterberg] is helping bring a traditional European treat -- Royal Swedish Snowballs -- to the United States in a cooperative arrangement with Just Baked, a Livonia-based specialty cupcake company. The treats -- sold for more than 100 years in Sweden -- consist of a center of marshmallow-like vanilla creme covered in chocolate and sprinkled with coconut so they resemble snowballs. Zetterberg says they were one of his favorite childhood desserts. The snowballs will make their U.S. debut on Sept. 5 at all 12 Just Baked cupcake shops. ... [Zetterberg] is a partner with Jan Jutbo, owner and CEO of the Royal Swedish Snowballs company, who has worked for years to bring the product to the U.S.

Doesn't Hostess already make these in like 3 or 4 flavors?

And I must say "Just Baked" is an awesome name. Must be very popular with a certain crowd.

I hear Feaster is offering Miikka Kiprusoff, Dennis Wideman, Jarome Iginla and five 1st round picks just so he can have Henrik Zetterberg and his Royal Swedish Snowballs in Calgary.

I used to laugh at the Red Wing announcers, they'd say Zet could grow a beard over the weekend.
