This is a large 114g chocolate bar (they don’t make them in small sizes for those watching their weight) and I bought this for a Special Price of £1 – No doubt the price will rise drastically after this.
Ingredients: Sugar (so mostly riddled with sugar), Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, skimmed milk powder (well it’s a start!), milk fat, hazelnuts, almonds, lactose, whey powder, emulsifier (soya lecithin), salt (yes, added SALT), natural vanilla extract (May contain peanut, gluten (wheat).
Calories: 560kcal per 100g
Carbohydrate: 52.1g per 100g
Sugars: 51.5g per 100g
Sneaky Marketing: On the front of the bar, the label states kcal per 3.8g, as opposed the 560kcal per 100g written in small print at the back. So, please read the back!
Fairtrade: No Fairtrade Mark whatsoever. No fairtrade sugar either.
Milk or Dark Chocolate: Milk, so even more fattening.
Packaging: Uninspiring, and tacky looking, perhaps made to look even cheaper.
Taste: Well the nutty crunch is nice and gives reminds you of eating a posh chocolate, but after a while, you suddenly get the sickly cheap chocolate taste, which tastes a bit weird and doesn’t seem to match the almonds and hazelnuts. It also tastes sickly. When you try it, it is nice for a bit, then you feel you have eaten a globful of fat, which has a funny after taste, even though you have just had one or two cubes.
Would I buy this again? I would only buy it if I could share it with several people, as this bar is far too much for anyone, and the amount of sugar and fat is far too much. I don’t think I would ever buy this more than once ever two years, and even that is too much!
