Nestlé Mirage

Mirage

Hailing from Canada is the Mirage bar. It’s billed as ‘Bubbly Milk Chocolate’, which sounds like either an Aero, or one of the old school Wispa bars I guess.

In fact, upon opening the pack, this thing really did start to resemble a Wispa. A long milk chocolate bar, quite thick, ordinary milk chocolate. It didn’t smell cheap or anything, just good chocolate. Biting into it reveals that the inside is all bubbly, again like an Aero or a Wispa.

It tastes very good too, there’s not much to it which is good in this case. No hidden caramel or peanuts or anything, just bubbly chocolate covered in another layer of chocolate. and really…that’s it, I don’t know what else I can say about this, and Nestlé certainly don’t help me, because the package is very plain and that’s all the product info there is.

There’s 215 calories, 25g of Carbs, 11g of Fat and 3g of Protein in this bar. If you’re a fan of Aero or Wispa bars, then definitely get this, it’s a very good bar, and while it may sound like I’m being harsh, it is a little boring.

Nestlé Dark Noir Kit Kat

Kit Kat Dark Noir

This Kit Kat is from Canada. I previously reviewed the dark chocolate Kit Kat from Britain and so thought it would be a good idea the British version with Canada’s.

Ours is Fine Dark, whilst this is Dark Noir. The bars are the same size and colour though, the slightly darker than normal colour. There’s no recommendation on the back about dipping the chocolates in coffee, like ours. These are also higher in calories than our version. This has 260 calories per bar, with 33g of Carbs, 14g of Fat and 3g of Protein.

The taste is very similar to our British version, though I’m sure this one is a bit sweeter. It also seemed a lot staler than our version, though that may just be my bad luck, other than that it was idential to the British version. Not exactly very dark, but it certainly wasn’t what I would consider to be your standard milk chocolate bar. I didn’t like it as much as the British version, which seems a bit more polished, lower in calories and fat, and basically just done better.





Cadbury Wunderbar

Wunderbar

Ach nein! This is the Wunderbar by Cadbury, and no it’s not from Germany, this is from Toronto, Canada. Why it’s called a Wunderbar, I really don’t know, because they don’t give you any information about it on the packagaing.

What you do get a is a purple package with some orange and yellow mixed in, and a picture of part of the Wunderbar on the front, it looks like it has peanut butter inside or something, so I’m pretty excited about this. Looking at the ingredients I see that it’s got sugar first, then peanuts, so I’m hoping to get a decent bar here.

Opening it up, it smells decent, nice peanutty smell, Biting into the bar was a surprise, there was caramel there as well. What you get is a chocolate coating, below that is a caramel coating, and the entire centre of the bar is peanut butter, with bits of peanut in it as well. It’s actually really nice, you can’t taste any of the chocolate at all, or the caramel either to be honest, so if you’re getting this then I hope you like peanuts, otherwise you’re gonna be disappointed.

The bar has 310 calories which is pretty high by my standards, that’s probably because of the peanuts which on their own would be high in calories. It has 33g of Carbs, 18g of Fat and 4g of Protein. As I said, if you like peanuts and are in Canada, then try this out, but if you don’t like peanuts then quite frankly buying this would be a foolish thing to do. Wundervoll!
