Its a Dime Bar!!!
Member Name: HelenDK
Advantages: A blast from the past
Disadvantages: One is not enough
Another blast from my childhood was sneakily bought and eaten today. I nipped to the shop for some milk and saw a box of 12 Daim bars for £1.99 and couldn't resist. You can buy yours for £1.79 for 4 bars from mst supermarkets (sainsburys, asda, Tesco, ocado). They are commonly found in Ikea, being imported from Sweden.
These bars originate from Sweden and Norway back in 1953. Daim bars are very distinctive, in a bright red package with blue writing. The packaging is exactly same as when it was known as a Dime bar back in 2005 and as with many other modern names I do struggle to think of these as anything other than dime bars.
Daim bars are very thin, less than half a centimetre thick, the centre is a thick honeycomb with milk chocolate surrounding it. The chocolate is a very good quality and the centre crunchy and delicious, being described as crunchy almond carmel centre.
My packaging tells me that the beans in the cocoa mass (minimum of 30% of the coca) originates from Rain forest alliance certified farms. These bars are made by Kraft foods.
My 28g bar was 155 Kcals which is quite reasonable how 1 of these bars doesn't quite fill my chocolate needs and leaves me wanting more.
Sugar, Vegetable Fat, Cocoa Butter, Dried Partly Skimmed Milk, Butter, Cocoa Mass, Lactose, Almonds (3%), Sweetened Condensed Skimmed Milk, Milk Fat, Salt, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin], Flavouring.
Milk Chocolate Contains: Milk Solids 14% Minimum and Cocoa Solids 30% Minimum.

So my score is 4. I absolutely love these bars but they never seem quite enough, so for making me greedy I have knocked off a star.
