The Mars Delight seems to be an upmarket chocolate bar by Mars. I’m pretty sure it’s advertised towards women as well. For some reason whenever I think of Mars Delights, I imagine a group of women sitting in an office, eating these things whilst sipping on Diet Cokes and gossping about whatever things women gossip about.
On the individual packs, Mars don’t actually bother to describe what it is. Most confectioners will put a brief description of the bar on the packaging, in their attempt to lure customers in. In a change of pace, Mars instead show a small picture of the two small chocolates that are in this pack on the front of the wrapper.
I quite like the packaging as well to be fair to it. Nice off-white colour, the usual Mars emblem blends well with it. All very good. But does it taste nice?
I’ll tell you what it does taste like, and that’s sweet. So very sweet. It’s a very nice flavour once you get past the sugar, but they seem to have overdone that aspect of the bar a little. Underneath the chocolate layer is a sort of cream filling, and under that is a wafer, which has a strange consistency to it, but it is still good. Quite an unremarkable flavour, sadly. Too much bloody sugar. I only finished this bar a few minutes ago and already the flavour is all gone as well, I can’t taste it at all anymore!
Overall, a disappointment. The taste isn’t bad, the bar isn’t bad, it’s just unremarkable and it seems a little lost. It’s been around for about 2 years now though so this is its finalised flavour. If you’re a woman who works in an office, likes Diet Coke and gossiping then this’ll be perfect for you, I can’t imagine anyone else getting too excited about it though.
