Hershey's Reese's Nutrageous
Advantages: Tastes Great, seriously good nutty hit, and chocolate
Disadvantages: no gda info on the packs, not everyones cup of tea
I think its outrageous that Nutrageous has only recently been stocked on the shelves of stores across the uk, its been available in the US for years!!
I like many other people really like hersheys chocolate, and i think that they do some incredible products, which thankfully are filtering over the pond these days.
Anyway, about the Nutrageous bars themselves...
The bar i am going to review is the smaller (51g) of the two available, which seems to be the new UK version that is available in most outlets now.
The bar itself is described as: "Crunchy Peanuts, Peanut Butter, Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Flavoured Coating", and comes in a snickers/Mars bar size and roughly the same shape packaging. The packaging is different from the above picture though as i think they have had a redesign recently and the 'Reese's' word is much more prominent than the 'Nutrageous', and it now has a lovely cross-section picture of the
bar on the wrapper as well.
Breaking the bar down to the above sections, the 'chocolate flavoured coating' is not very sweet which is great for this bar as it doesnt give you too much sweetness and kill of the flavour of the nuttyness inside, but gives you just enough to let you know that the hersheys choc is definately a part.
The 'Crunchy Peanuts' are there in abundance, and they are exactly as described, giving you a great feeling of satisfaction as you bite into the bar.
The 'Peanut Butter' is well proportioned, and there is enough in there to give most peole their peanut butter 'hit', but just before the peanut butter you encounter a layer of "Creamy Caramel".
I'm not sure I would describe the caramel as 'Creamy' per se, as this depends on the products serving temperature... however it is another sweet hit in the cycle of textures that make up the bar.
Personally I think that the newer UK version of the bar is about right in the portion size department, and they have thickened the bar up a bit so you get more of a big bite from it, as opposed to the US version which is longer, and wider, but thinner. This also seems to have meant that therecan be more peanuts surrounding the core and I again am in full agreement with the company for doing this.
This is definately a bar to be eaten whole in a manly, Yorkie way; just open and take nice big bites from it, as opposed to the many ways you can eat other choccy treats by breaking them down sections at a time and prolonging the experience (e.g. the kit kat chocolate stripping method, or the Jaffa cake edge, choc, sponge and jelly method...).
now for those all important facts: Sorry, but they are not available on the wrapper! however I would like to point out from a health and safety standpoint that this is one sweet treat that anyone suffering from a nut allergy should keep at least ten feet away from, as it is so incredibly nutty, you might have a reaction just getting close!
They are available at varying prices from outlets all over and cost approximately 70p which some may consider a little high, but trust me, its worth it.
