As Pick Me Ups Go, This Beats Trisha And Jogging Bottoms

There comes a time in everyone's life when they need some chocolate. I'm not talking about the times when you "quite fancy" some chocolate. I'm not talking about the times when people offer you chocolate and you say "oh, actually I wouldn't mind some, thanks". I'm talking about days when the only option is chocolate. When the world looks especially gloomy and when the biggest chocolate fix imaginable is the only solution (short of changing into jogging bottoms and watching trash TV all day, that is). A Boost is a chocolate bar for those occasions.
Resplendant in its shiny blue wrapper, a Boost is a serious chocolate bar. As it proudly claims on the packet, it is charged with glucose. Yes folks, that's also known as good old sugar. This chocolate bar has so much sugar in it that it will definitely give you, your mood, and your energy levels a bit of a Boost (chocolate helps you produce more seratonin, you know - it does actually cheer you up!).
Open the packet to find a very serious looking chocolate bar. A big slab of chocolate with no sections to break off, you can tell it means business. Take a bite to discover the layers: underneath the chocolate coating is a caramel layer; beneath which is a powdery-yet-creamy chocolate centre, which contains tempting little balls of biscuit to add texture and crunch to each bite.
The result of the layers is sweet tooth heaven. Far too sugary and intense for everyday use, the gooey chocolate and caramel combine to create a little chocolate explosion in your mouth. It will stick in your teeth, it will coat the inside of your mouth with glorious chocolate and if you are in the right mood, you will love it.
As I've said, this is a chocolate bar for chocolate emergencies. At 310 calories and over 17g of fat per bar, it definitely isn't for more than occasional use. But, when you desperately need a Boost that only chocolate can give, only a Boost will do.
