Coming in from Scandinavia is the dark chocolate Daim bar. Previously known as the Dime Bar, and no doubt still known as the Dime Bar to most people, this is a real favourite with a lot of people in the UK and Scandinavia.
It originated in Sweden after research into the American Heath bar was conducted. This bar is a thin crunchy slab of hardened caramel, covered in thin milk chocolate. It sounds plain, and it is, but it works very well. Unfortunately the caramel has an awful tendency to get stuck in your teeth, and because it’s hardened it can be tough getting rid of it, but it’s a very nice tasting chocolate bar.
A dark chocolate edition was only inevitable I guess, and I’m happy enough to try it. Scandinavia obviously don’t like us Brits very much, because there is no English here at all, except strangely, on the front of the pack. All the information and ingredients is in every Nordic language though, and no English.
The bar starts off tasting ok, it seems nice enough, a bit more bitter than usual, but then a strange taste comes through, and it’s not good. It ruins the bar completely, I don’t know what this taste is but it’s not good. I don’t like it one bit and I didn’t even finish the bar because of this strange taste.
Shame really, but I don’t care as much as I might because there’s no English on the pack. Stick with the ordinary Daim bars, that’s good eatin’.
P.S. The picture above is of an ordinary Daim Bar. I couldn’t find any pictures of the Dark Chocolate variety anywhere on the internets.
