Dark chocolate covered caramel and crispy rice. That's a tempting combination.
But should you spend your discretionary calories on this candy?
Or is it an udder waste of money?
Ok I promise, no more corny cow references!
Let's talk taste. Is Nestle's candy creation a decent dark chocolate confection?
Well, the first ingredient is dark chocolate. Made with sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, soy lecithin and vanilla extract listed in that order.
So it's made with real chocolate. Good start!
Not to worry, it's not too dark. More like a semi-sweet chocolate since sugar is the primary ingredient.
There's also a milk chocolate version.
The crackling rice and caramel center provide a few seconds of satisfying chewiness.
Each bite is full of crispy, crunchy, chewy, chocolate goodness with a slightly salty aftertaste.
Be careful not to bite your fingers though!
These tasty candies are tiny. Bite-sized bits that go down quick.
Only five bites per pouch unless you're a dainty eater.
Not a bad way to spend your 120 calories. Kudos to the Nestle company.
Now, if only Nestle could maintain the taste, reduce the calories and double the number of candies per pouch!
Until they achieve that miracle, these tasty dark chocolate candies, in a portion controlled packet, can help you fight the paunch.
They just might satisfy your urge with fewer calories.
