Although I think the Caramel ones of these are the nicest, I had never tried these ones. Always just walked past them, and not really sure why as I like all things Chocolate, but I tried them the other month when they were on offer in tesco.
Spotted on the end aisle at £1 for the 4 pack. The pack normally costs around £1.60, which makes the 36g bars 40p each. At least these are larger than the other Cereal Bars.
They are wrapped individually and all bars are in an outer wrapper as well. They are quite wide, not too thick but thick enough, and long enough as well.
All these are are some Rice krispies with chocolate chunks mixed through and chocolate mixed through as well. I think they should have used coco pops instead of rice krispies, but that is only my view.
This bar is nice and crispy and crunchy. It is tasty and the chocolate makes it nice and sweet but you can still taste the healthier taste of the rice through this.
I did like these and I would buy again, but still think I like the caramel and chocolate ones better.
Each bar has 156 calories and 6g of fat, so a bit healthier for you than a bar of chocolate, but perhaps not quite as satisfying.
A nice cereal bar snack.
I first came across these some months back whilst shopping with the kids in our local Iceland. They had bought the ordinary square bars previously but as soon as they saw the chocolate version, they just had to have them.
A pack of 4 cost a £1 - so it doesn't take a mathematical genius to work out that they cost 25p each in a multipack, although I have seen them sold in certain newsagents for 60p each.
So what do you get for your hard earned money. Well firstly in relation to mutlipacks you are met with a brown pack about 10" x 6" with SQUARES and NEW emblazoned across the front. It also proudly shouts out at you that they are made from Kelloggs - so they must be good???
Okay opening the packet I am met with 4 Bars, all individually wrapped and all good sized.In fact each bar weighs in at 36g. They also have 158 calories and 13g of the white stuff (sugar). For those who like fat, you get a nice 5grammes of that in each bar also.
Taste wise they are delicious. Not only do the toasted rice cereal make the snack feel so light, the milk chocolate coating gives them a taste you can only dream of. They are also extremely chewy. The children love them and so do I, and they are now part of our weekly shop. Not really healthy though, so eat in moderation. They are also extremely filling. Can a snack feel light yet so filling? I think so in relation to this particular snack.
I won't bore you with a list of all the ingredients. There are many listed on the packet, and many do not come under the heading healthy. Allergy wise it is important to point out that it contains Milk, Soy and Barley!!!
Kellogg's Squares Rice Krispies Chocolate squares sell for roughly 45 pence (when sold separately) but the other week in Sainsbury's I picked up a 4 pack for £1 (down from around £1.70) which works out at 25p each. Which is very cheap at the moment
The bar is basically a huge rice Krispie square (like my mum used to make with rice krispies cereal) with a layer of chocolate melted over the top.
The bars are 38 grams each so they are quite filling and I've never had the urge to eat two in one sitting like other bars (greedy git I know), each bar contains 158 calories and 5 grams of fat which isn't too good if you're on a diet but is no means as bad as a lot of chocolate bars out there on sale.
The bar tastes very chocolate-y with a pleasantly surprisingly nice flavour to it, as I imagined a product of Kellogg's might fail slightly in this department. The bar is very sweet, I like how moist the bar is when you bite into it and how it lasts quite a while as it is rather chewy. A very nice snack indeed.
Personally I still prefer the original marshmallow squares but for a change I will be buying these from now on.
Kelloggs squares have to be one of my favourite snacks of all time! first ones i tried were the marshmellow ones which i didnt find that great, then i tried the caramels ones and i thought they were delicious! being a huge caramel fan, im glad i wasnt disapointed as they were full with caramalyness. then this newest edition 'totally chocolatey' came out, which i thought looked really nice to. so i tried them and i have to say i wasnt disapointed! this chocolatey version is full with chocolate, which of course is the point! the squares themselves are made out of rice crispys. the totally chocolatey version, is completely covered in chocolate and has chocolate chunks on top. so if you want something chocolatey other than chocolate i would definitely recommend these kelloggs squares.
these squares aren't sickly neither which is great, so you are able to eat the whole thing without feeling ill.
my opinion, they don't fill you up at all. these squares usually come in packs of 4, and i could quite easily eat at least 2 of them in one go.
I thought I'd give these a try after being slightly disappointed by the Krispies Marshmallow Squares. Being a fan of chocolate, I'm probably biased but I do think these are quite tasty, though quite pricey too considering what they are.
Rice Krispies Squares are a newer addition to the Kellogg's Rice Krispies range, and have been promoted lately in advertising and some coupons for a free bar of each flavour in The Sun. I recently received their Marshmallow squares, though I found them to be a bit too sticky and sickly.
These are sold individually at around 45p (or 65p if you venture to Somerfield) and in multipacks of 4 x 36g for £1.69 (Tesco). I think that they're quite pricey considering what they are, so wouldn't buy them at this price. I have, however, seen them on sale and in discount shops, like Poundstretcher, for £1, which is much more reasonable.
Each 36g bar, or mini brick, is individually wrapped for freshness in a dark purple shiny wrapper, making them for lunchboxes, taking them out with you etc.
What are they? A chunky square of Rice Krispies, with a layer of chocolate lashed over the top in a lattice effect. The toasted rice cereal is packed together to form the miniature brick, though there are gaps which are partly filled by some chocolate chunks.
The rice cereal is very lightweight, and so although each bar looks chunky, they're surprisingly light in weight. They go down quite easy and don't rest heavily either, so they make a good light snack that wont fill you up too much.
The rice cereal is somewhat crunchy, though almost melts in your mouth. It's the thick chocolate layer on the top that adds a bit of chewyness to the texture. The chocolate is smooth and tastes like good quality, complimenting the rice cereal and giving the bar an overall sweet taste.
Each Square contains 158 calories and 6g fat, which isn't too bad for a snack that's sweet and chocolatey. That said, although they look big, they probably wont go far in satisfying a larger appetite, but are good for a lighter snack.
These are a bit different from your average cereal bar or chocolate bar, giving a good in-between alternative. The chocolate is lovely and so I would recommend these. I've got them on my shopping list for the next time I see them for £1 :o)
Kelloggs Totally Chocolatey Squares are something that I have very recently been introduced to. When I heard about them from my fiance I decided that the next time I saw them I would indulge our sweet tooths and treat us to a few nice snacks from the four that they currently offer in the range, so when I spotted 2 packs (4 in a pack) from Tesco stores for £3.00 I decided to throw them in the basket and waste a little money on myself for a change.
These 'Squares' are actually oblong in shape and they come wrapped in a purple foil which shows Kelloggs brand information, nutritional information, ingredients etc and everything is nice and easy to understand. There is around 6 months on the best before but they won't last 6 hours now I've tried them let alone 6 months!
This particular 'Square' is toasted rice cereal which is flavoured with chocolate (think of Coco Pops) and then covered with lots of delicious chocolate chips and a drizzle of chocolate all over. It has a very nice appearance and it does give off a lovely chocolate smell as soon as I open it. The grains of rice are help together very well and it's quite a sticky bar so it's easy to break off a little section but I really felt like I just couldn't eat this fast enough because it was so delicious. The chunks were lovely and thick and the whole bar had a fantastic sweet taste to it.
Each 36g 'Square' has 158 calories and 5g of fat (3.5g saturates) per bar and although this is a little high it's not as bad as I was expecting and this amount of calories is pretty similar for the entire range it would seem.
I was really pleased with my purchase and these are something that I am going to buy again (when the budget allows it of course) and would definitely recommend it to anybody who has a sweet tooth and doesn't mind a little extra fat in their diet now and again!
I think that these would be a huge hit with young children too as they're are wickedly sinful but should be enjoyed in moderation because there is 13g of sugars in each one!
I am going to rate these 4/5 as they're a very tasty treat and not too badly priced (I paid 45p for an individual one the other day from a petrol station).
