Advantages: Fruit combo works very well, Filling.
Disadvantages: Coconut can become fairly sticky and crumbly.
Bounty is a confectionary chocolate bar made by the same company who makes the popular Mars bars, and so as such the chocolate used in the bar is Mars bar chocolate. What is more interesting and favourable about the product is the fact the chocolate surrounds the inside which is filled with coconut. People always seem to be very wary when confectionary is mixed with fruit, complaining the fruit takes away the taste of the chocolate, they dont work together well etc etc. However, Bounty chocolate bar is definitely a chocolate/fruit combo that works extremely well. Im not a particular coconut lover myself, but I was intrgiued with the fact Bounty combines chocolate and cococnut, a combination I had never heard before. Much to my surprise, it tasted very good! The mars chocolate seems to melt in your mouth while the coconut lingeres, but the coconut is sticky as a result of the sugar, and it works suprisingly well. The coconut does not have the harsh taste of a actual cocount, infact it tastes very little like a coconut at all, but in a good way. The fact the bar comes in 2 small pieces means you dont have to eat the whole bar in one go, which may be neccesary as the bar is suprisingly filling for a chocolate bar! Therfore Bounty is also a great idea as a way to keep you full and refrain you from eating anything larger before lunch or dinner.
The only downside is the coconut can become quite sticky and crumbly, so if its a hot day, perhaps keep a tissue of some sort handy!
Summary: One of the best chocolate bars on the market.
