Cadbury Curly Wurly
Advantages: tasty, low in fat and cals
Disadvantages: not so good for the teeth
I have always liked curly wurly's for as long as I can remember. We had them as kids for a treat here and there and recently, when doing weight watchers, I found that a lot of chocolate bars are very high saturated fat and calories, as you would expect. I went onto weight watchers online and was looking for a lower fat chocolate bar that I could have when I really needed a treat.
Browsing through I found that a lot of chocolate bars were just too high in points for me to be able to have most days. Most of them are around 200 calories or more and the saturated fat can be as high as 8g per bar, which is a lot of fat. Curly wurly's are a lot lower in fat and calories and because there isn't a lot of chocolate, they are only 3.5 points per bar, which means that if I wanted to I could have one most days.
Curly Wurly's are basically hard caramel that has been twisted into a plait shape and coated in chocolate. They are about 7 inches long and a very light chocolate. The caramel is chewy and does tend to stick to your teeth.
Curly wurly's are quite cheap compared to most chocolate bars. When buying a multi-pack of chocolate bars, you are lucky to pay less than about 40p per bar. Curly wurly's can cost as little 20p per bar, just below £1 for a pack of 5, which is very good value.
Summary: a nie treat at a good price
