This is an interesting one, or at least it was before my friends at the Chocablog reviewed it. This is from Australia and is made by Nestlé. It’s billed as energy food, ‘soft on [the] top and [with] a crunchy mild base’. Now when I think of energy food, I think of either protein bars, or those ‘super’ carb bars from Lucozade or whoever. I’ve tasted a few protein bars in my time, and most of them taste awful. This isn’t a Protein bar though, in fact looking at the nutritional information it looks like a standard chocolate bar, and with sugar as the first ingredient, then I’m pretty confused here.
Opening the pack, it looks a little like a Toffee Crisp. Tastes like it as well. I’m not sure what is ‘on top’, but it’s not soft, it’s hard and toffee-like. The base is crunchy though, with a lot of puffed rice there. I really can’t think of anyway to describe this except for an Australian Toffee Crisp. And energy food? Sure, I suppose sugar is a form of energy, but no one calls chocolate energy food.
It’s not bad, but it’s just annoying what Nestlé have tried to pull here. It’s not energy food, and it’s not anything new as far as my taste buds are concerned. If you live in Britain, just eat our Toffee Crisps.
