~*~ Introduction ~*~
While waiting to queue up to pay for my goodies in Boots today, I noticed to my right there were a number of things that were reduced, and one thing in particular caught my attention the small pile of these Shapers Double Chocolate bar having had a few bars out of the shapers range I though I would give this one a chance, having liked the others.. Plus with then being reduced to only 10p - could I resist a bargain?
So while I sat waiting for my boyfriend to arrive I thought I would have a munch away on this, stop me being slightly peckish at least for half an hour anyway..
~*~ Packaging ~*~
These little chocolate bars come in a two tone pale a darker brown plastic wrapper similar to those you would find on most chocolate bars.. The wrapper has a photo of chocolate chunks in melted chocolate which within itself looks very tasty, there is the usual 'Shapers' logo with a little description below it of what the chocolate bar is.. Even better for the company it shows the 'Free From' information so it is quick and easy to fin out if you can munch on this without having any allergic reaction or anything nasty!!
~*~ Look, Smell and Taste ~*~
Well when I peeled open the packet safely so not to ruin the nutritional information, I noticed that similar to the other bars in the shapers range the bar is around 4 maybe 5 inches long, and relatively flat, with ripples across the top.. Which you can actually see the nougat inside through.. It is not exactly what I expected it to be, thinking it would be in chunks.. However it appears I was wrong!
As soon as I opened the packet, all I could smell was a very strong aroma of chocolate, given the first smell you would not expect it to be a nougat bar, just a very strong solid bar of chocolate.. However now I think about it, it does smell a little like a milky way bar..
When you first bite into this chocolate bar, you hit the very thin chocolate on top, which is not a great quality chocolate, but never the less isn't too appalling tasting.. The nougat underneath, even though you knew it was there, is still quite a surprise, being used to having totally solid chocolate bars.. The nougat as well as smelling like a milky way it also tastes nice and fluffy like a milky way.. So the taste is very sweet, but is reminiscent of childhood, eating milky ways.. The aftertaste it leaves isn't all that bad actually, after a few minutes, the taste is gone.. Which stops you wanting to eat another one I guess...

~*~ Overall ~*~
For 10p it is a bit of a bargain but with it being 47p normally, considering the amount of sugar that is in it, it's a bit of a rip - off, as it is meant to be a more healthy alternative, it seems worse than some of the chocolate on the shelves.. The taste itself is really nice because while it is chocolatey it doesn't last all that long, not giving you reason to want to buy one after the other to get a decent chocolate fix.. I have to say the amount of sugar, makes this chocolate bar such a no for me, because for something that is meant to be healthy, it is full of sugar, making up for the fat no doubt, which is still quite high, the only low thing about this chocolate bar is that it has only 94 calorie s..
Summary: Low calorie, but high in sugar chocolate snack..
