Baileys - The Original Irish Cream Truffle Bar This is simply 100g of pure heaven! I got this from (would you believe it) a pound store, so you can probably guess that it cost me £1.00, I do not know how much it normally costs in mainstream supermarkets etc. This is a chocolate bar, with Bailey's liqueur truffle within. The product comes in a firm cardboard outer packet, with foil inner wrapper, with the usual 'Bailey's ' logo, easily recognisable, and a photo of the product. On the back of the packet is the usual nutritional information (506 calories per 100g), and also an interesting little piece of writing entitle "The Lir Legend" which is all about Lir, who was once King of Ireland, and his four children who were transformed into swans by their jealous stepmother. Well, they say you should try to learn something new every day, don't they, so that's today sorted! Anyway, now for the important part: What does it taste like? It tastes out of this world: the milk chocolate outer coating is really nice and creamy, but it's the inner truffle that really takes the prize: It's soft and, well, 'truffley' - the texture is smooth and whipped, and it melts in your mouth, leaving behind a strong hit of real Bailey's liqueur (for anyone who doesn't know, that is made from whiskey and cream). This is made by 'Bailey's Fine Foods' and Lir Chocolates, based in Ireland. The label states that, as it contains alcohol (1%) it is not suitable for children. It also warns that it contains milk and soya. Verdict: Cannot wait to buy some more of this!
