“ Brand: Boots / Type: Caramel „
I saw this item on a recent trip to boots when I was grabbing a meal deal, it is part of the new range of shapers products and it caught my eye because of the two words on the wrapper - 'chocolate' and 'caramel'. There is no picture above and none on the shapers section of the boots website as yet, I think this product has literally just launched, but I can tell you that it is packaged in a white wrapper with a small picture of some caramel chunks on it and a gold stripe.
The wrapping also tells me that it is free from artificial colours and flavours and from hydrogenated fats. The total calories for the bar is 100 and there are 1.2g of sat fat, this means that on the weight watchers plan it is worth 2 points. This might seem a lot for a snack - but I have to tell you that in my opinion it is worth it.
On unwrapping the bar I was surprised to see that it is entirely covered in milk chocolate, no skimping here. On biting in to it I had to shut my eyes a bit because it really is devine and I wanted to savour every single moment it was in my mouth. It is basically like a chomp bar (those wonderful 15p kids sweets!), soft, luxuriously gooey caramel smothered in chocolate. With every mouthful I couldnt quite believe it was only 2 points worth, it felt like such an indulgent treat!
The other great thing is that it was substantial enough not to be gone in two mouthfuls, the bar is just over 10cm long but because of the texture of the caramel this lasted me a good 5 or 6 bites. It is chewy and delicious and definitely feels like a sin despite its low fat content.
I honestly think this is a wonderful addition to the shapers range and it is definitely one I will pick up again as part of a meal deal, if I knew I had one of these to look forward to as a mid afternoon snack I know I would feel as if I was having a proper treat.
The price of the bar on its own was 49p but it is part of the lunchtime meal deal range, along with the other shapers bars. Of all those which I have tried this is definitely my favourite so far.
This product is marked as vegetarian, the wrapper states that it may contain traces of nuts and it also contains soya and milk for those of you with allergies to be aware of.
A great, tasty and indulgent addition to the shapers range at Boots.
