Advantages: tasty, moist coconut, creamy chocolate, two peices
Tesco have recently had a great offer on Mars multipack chocolate bars with you being able to purchase 5 bars for just £1.00. One of the bars that this included was bounty's, not normally a chocolate bar that I choose but thought I had not had for a while so would be a nice change.
A bounty bar is a coconut centre covered in mars milk chocolate. The bars are unique in the fact that they are split into two pieces. I think this is a great idea if you do not want to eat the whole thing in one go as you can save half for later.
The bounty's come in a plastic wrapper with the two pieces placed together in a row. The wrapper has a very tropical look to it with it being blue and white with pictures of palm trees and coconuts on the front, obviously to try and make you feel that you're on a paradise island when eating one. As my bounty's came in a multipack the individual wrappers had very little information on, the main information was instead on the back of the multipack wrapper.
Even though the majority of this chocolate bar is coconut it does not mean that this cuts down on the fat or calorie content I'm afraid. One 28.5g piece (half) of a bounty bar contains the following nutritional information:
Calories - 134kcal
Sugar - 13.5g
Fat - 7.0g
Sodium - 0.03g
Each of the two pieces of bounty in the pack are about 3 inches in length and oval in shape with a rippled chocolate pattern on the top. Now I am not normally a huge coconut fan, especially desiccated coconut as I find that even in things like cakes it can be very dry. But in the bounty bars it is very moist and quite sweet and this works fantastically with the milk chocolate it is covered in. The coconut has quite a fresh but creamy taste and is nice and soft so is easy to bite into. The milk chocolate is quite thick and keeps all of the coconut filling nicely packed inside and has a lovely smooth creamy taste. And the best thing about bounty's is when you have eaten one piece you still have a second to look forward to!
Overall the mars bounty bar offers a lovely change from the usual chocolate bars and certainly is a chocolate bar that I should purchase more often as I forget how nice they are.
Summary: a taste of paradise from mars
