Would tiger barbs eat Malaysian trumpet snails?

I doubt it. Those are tough little suckers.

the tiger barbs in my tank don't bother with the snails a bit.

My tigers peck at them but thats just because they are curious as to what the moving thing on the glass is. They, however, don't attempt to eat them.

I doubt it, you can try crushing them and then seeing if the barbs will eat them, but IME, mts are the hardest little snails out there.
