“ Brand: Asda / Type: White „
I am always on the lookout for cheaper alternatives to fill my children's lunchboxes with for school, with me coming across these not long after they were placed in the shops.
My daughter doesn't really like white chocolate that much, so purchased the milk chocolate version of these treats for her, but due to the really reasonable price it didn't break the bank buying both!
The product in question is - "Asda's - Hands off my white chocolate bubbly bars".
These mini chocolate bars come in two different sizes, these which are literally only two squares long, which equals to a miniature mars bar, or slightly larger which equates to the size of a chocolate biscuit bar, which of course means less in a pack!
The packaging is quite distinctive looking, being a large double ended sealed bag and an aqua colour to boot.
There is plenty of information available on the packet itself, though has almost been added on in the form of children's scribble, so not everything is readable immediately, with you having to read a bit more intently, this is all then topped off with a rather freaky looking "creature" defending his chocolate bar, though why he has to have so many protruding teeth showing is beyond me!
Each bar inside the main pack is also wrapped in a wrapper of the same colour, containing much of the same information, which at that size is even harder to read, or is that just my old eyes?
When unwrapped (which is incredibly easy, too easy in fact, sometimes a bar can end up being sealed into the ends of the main bag, so one is lost the second I open the big bag!), you are faced with a small two squared bar, which when snapped in half resembles an Aero bar.
The smell is as you would expect, creamy and sweet, and though I do find white chocolate a little too sickly for my tastes I did try one for the sake of this review.
The taste I am afraid does not live up to the scent, with the chocolate being quite greasy feeling, which I find you can get with cheaper chocolate, with even my son leaving these until he has absolutely nothing left to eat, and then he will eat them, but they are not that nice.
The chocolate not only leaves a film over your tongue but tastes a little "twangy", not smooth as you would expect with the product, as I said I am not a fan anyway but this was not at all pleasant.

I wouldn't really recommend these as we really didn't enjoy them, which is a real shame as these are available for £1.00 a bag.
