      A nice snack with a difference

      In need of some chocolate the other lunch time I was looking along the shelves for something a bit different and saw Mars Delight. I have obviously seen these before but not tried one, so decided on that day that I would.

      The packaging is creamy coloured with the usual Mars logo and then the word Delight in big writing in the sort of font which makes the word look happy and delightful!

      Inside the packaging I found that there are two small bars which I guess is quite nice if, unlike me, you can save half for later or want to share. As I said, the two bars aren't very big and in fact the wrapper says that the total weight is 36g.

      Anyway, on to the important bit - the chocolate. I didn't really have any idea what to expect and was pleasantly surprised by the crispy wafer which makes up the top half of the bar and was a nice contrast to the caramel cream on the bottom. The whole thing is then covered in a lovely milk chocolate covering. The wafer provided some texture whilst stopping the whole thing from being too sweet and sickly.

      Suppose I had better quickly mention the calories:-

      Each piece contains 99 calories
      fat 5.9g
      The wrapper doesn't give the amount of sugar per bar but I imagine there is quite a lot as sugar comes first in the list of ingredients.
      However, the good thing is that there are no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives!

      I would buy Mars Delight again as it was a nice tasting snack with plenty of chocolate but with the wafer making it a bit different to other similar chocolate snacks on the market. I did find it a little bit expensive at 65p but then I did buy it in a small newsagents and it is probably a lot cheaper in a big supermarket or bought as a multipack.

      Quite Delightful.

        Delicious DELIGHT bars from Mars... buy them. Now.. GO!!

        My other half came home the other day with a trio packet of biscuits/chocolate bars. The bars in question were from the well known manufacturers of the MARS range of confectionery and were called 'Mars Delight' bars.

        My partner bought the bag of three bars for the sum of £1 from an (independent) supermarket near to his work but I have seen them in our local Co-operative supermarket too so I believe they are quite widely available.

        Having not tried the Mars Delight bars before, I was unsure what to expect from this product, mainly because the picture of the bar on the outside of the packet showed me a chocolate treat that I couldn't identify with immediately as being either a biscuit or a bar of chocolate. This is probably because the inside of the bar looked to contain a creamy substance and this together with the chocolate exterior would suggest to me that the bar was a sweet. On the other hand though, the middle of the bar was described on the packaging as being 'crispy wafer' and the bar itself - which comes in two little halves - suggested that it may be some sort of crispy biscuit type snack. Only one way to find out of course, and that is to give it the taste test... It's a rough job, but somebody's got to do it! ;-)

        Removing one of the little halves of chocolate from the wrapper, I thought that the Mars delight looked just that -- delightful! A very attractive, albeit small little piece of chocolate that had a sort of 'rippled' outer coating on it was duly inspected. I could see that the chocolate looked to be of the usual high standard that one would expect from such a well known 'top' brand such as Mars, and the smell of the milk chocolate did certainly back up this expectation.

        Biting into the bar, the first sensation that hit me was the crunch or the crispiness of the centre of the bar. Being very light but pleasantly crisp at the same time, this was quite delicious as a filling and I was keen to inspect the inside of the bar. I could see whilst doing so that the bar looked similar to that on the picture on the outside of the package so I felt that I had not been duped in any way by the manufacturers. I find that it is quite a common occurrence for manufacturers to 'plump up' the pictures on the packaging of products and the end product is often not as attractive as they would have initially had us believe, but I couldn't really say this was the case with the Mars delight bar thus far.

        The other elements to the filling of the bar were just as enjoyable; I found that both the 'smooth chocolate cream' and the 'Melting caramel cream' in the bar's interior layers were equally delicious and creamy indeed. This provided a pleasant contrast to the crispy 'bite' that I got from the crisp wafer that the cream surrounded.

        I was pleasantly surprised by the Mars delight bars and would buy them again. I thought they were really delicious with my hot afternoon cuppa and I liked that they provided a welcome change from my usual choice of afternoon snack items, as I had not tried them before. As for the biscuit versus chocolate bar debate, I would say that in my opinion this is most definitely an item of confectionary and is a chocolate bar. I think it is too rich to be a biscuit in my view.

        Whilst I am on the subject of the richness of the bar, I would say that this is it's one downfall. Any regular readers of my reviews will be aware of my confessions in the past regarding my sweet tooth in that it dominates my eating habits and my snacking habits to great extremes. You can imagine my partner's shock and surprise then, when after eating one of the two halves of the Mars delight bar I had to admit defeat and keep the remainder of the bar until another time. Believe me, this is not a regular occurrence at all and should hopefully give some indication to the sweetness and the richness of the Mars delight bar. It was in no way an unpleasant snack to devour, I just found it so chocolaty that it was verging on being sickly for my own tastes. It wouldn't surprise me if this is why the manufacturers decided to split the bar into two individual pieces, and the fact that they did this means I will not deduct any of the Dooyoo award stars from the product's rating.

        The nutritional information on the packaging for the trio of Mars delight bars informs me that there are no are no artificial colours or flavours in each of the 36g bars. I can see that per 100g, the bars will provide: 548 calories and 32.7 g of fat so they can obviously not be classed as a healthy snack item.

        All in all I would recommend the Mars delight bar and think it offers a nice change from other chocolate items that I buy regularly. I will get them again!

          not a great chocolate bar

          Mars delight are another mars product that just failed to impress me that much. I have had a few of these but never actually bought one myself as I haven't enjoyed them enough to want to go to the shops and purchase one.

          They are mars product and came out a fair few years ago now and although there still being sold I don't think they were that successful or at least not with anyone I know as I don't know anyone who goes crazy for these.

          These look quite good though, you get two long thin fingers of mars delight and they are a kind of bobbly shaped chocolate bar. The crisp of them when you bite into them is great, as they have a layer of wafer inside them however the thing I don't like about this product is the kind of creamy chocolate middle, its just really sickly, and usually sickly things don't bother me but there's just something about this one that makes me not stand to taste of it.

          If you like the taste of the middle then these would be great, they look good have a good texture and you get two whole fingers for the price of a normal chocolate bar, a good product in every way, however I just really don't like the taste.

            A rival to Kinder Bueno!

            I was first introduced to this when my friend have me half of his, and honestly I wanted to take the OTHER one too!

            ~~~PACKAGING~~~
            Mars Delight comes in a simple plastic wrapper, and for the multipack they have four individually wrapped ones in a pack.

            The packaging is good, not overuse of plastic and just simple printed on to tell you what it is. I have to say just from looking at the wrapper, I would've been immediately attracted as it looks good from the wrapper!!

            ~~~APPEARANCE, TASTE AND TEXTURE~~~
            These are long bar like in shape, covered in milk chocolate, and looks ridged on the surface. Take a bite, and wow the first thing you notice is the texture. It is so multi dimensional, the flakiness, the softness... everything comes together in such a fantastic way.

            I love the combination of the chocolate wrapping this wafer centre. It is super crunchy and complimentary to the other textures.

            Taste wise, it is gorgeous. It is not overly sweet or sickening, but just right, and what is to be said is that it does not taste generic. It has its unique and original flavour.

            I love it as a treat; it is so indulgent and rich. Whilst there are like two half bars per bar, I would NOT share this with anyone, it's too good to share XD.

            ~~~PRICE~~~
            It can be purchased for around 50p on its own or around £1 in a multipack of 4. I personally would recommend getting the multipack for its sheer value, but I would not blame you if you couldn't resist buying it on its own!

            ~~~OVERALL~~~
            This is one of the best chocolate bars that exist, perhaps a rival to Kinder Bueno. Personally, there is no competition as they are both totally different in taste. I love them BOTH equally. With Mars, the texture really is the selling point, whilst with kinder Bueno, the taste and the milky and hazelnut is great.

            Both are perfect little bars of heaven, and I would recommend this if you like Kinder Bueno.

            This is a treat for adults and children alike. Get them before stocks run out over Christmas!!

              Mars have tried to make something great which has turned out terrible!

              I really fancied a chocolate bar the other day so popped to my local newsagents to have a nose. I always like to try something different rather than stick to the same old galaxy or dairy milk so I opted for Mars Delight.

              Mars Delight is nothing like your typical 'Mars Bar' coming in a completely different wrapper and tasting completely different too.

              Mars Delight can be found in a not so delightful cream colour wrapper, alot thinner and narrower than your usual mars bar. It clearly says Mars in the corner, although personally I don't think you should let this win you over! It then says Delight in large, white bubble writing on a deep red background. It says on the wrapper 'Surprisingly crispy, deliciously smooth' - very little faith they had in this then if it's 'surprisingly' this good right? The bar contains no artitificial colours, flavours or preservatives. In case you are wonderin now Mars Delight is quite simply Crispy rippled wafer surrounded by Caramel Cream and Chocolate cream covered in milk chocolate. A fantastic description of a not so brilliant bar in my opinion.

              The chocolate bar itself looks nothing special being narrow, rectangular with ridges throughout thanks to the rippled wafer buried underneath. Biting into a bar you are met by a strange array of textures but not many flavours really. It's a light and crispy bar but really offers nothing apart from that. The wafer is crunchy yes, but it's boring, I don't find the caramel cream offers anything apart from a creamy consistency to the bar. I don't particularly like the flavour and I feel they were just trying to imitate the hazelnut filling you can find within Kinder Bueno bars and it is nowhere near this standard tastewise or consistency wise really. The chocolate coating the whole bar is a thin layer, it's sweet like mars chocolate and creamy but that is about the only good thing but theres not enough of it.

              The bar comes in two small pieces in one wrapper for some reason and each piece contains;
              99 calories
              5.9g fat

              To be honest I wouldn't recommend this chocolate bar to anybody, it's OK and neither here nor there, it doesn't offer an awful lot really.

                Disadvantages

                I suppose I shouldn't moan considering these were just £1 - but I am!

                I have only tried a Mars Delight once and that was when they first came out, I couldn't actually remember if I liked them or not so when I saw a pack of four in Poundland recently I decided to treat myself.

                Unfortunately I should have tried harder to remember as it turned out that not only do I dislike them, but no-one else seems to be fond of them either so I have no-one to palm them off on!

                With this product I think Mars are trying to fool us that they have created a healthier chocolate bar than their sugar packed Mars Bar, only they haven't really - what they have produced is something that to be fair does taste a little lighter but is still so full of sugar that it made my teeth ache after a while.

                The Mars Delight comes in two segments and is basically a wafer snack which has been coated in a later of caramel and then covered in chocolate. Despite the fact that the nougat is missing, this still manages to taste just like a Mars Bar only a little more insipid. The wafer is very sugary tasting but besides this there is very little taste to this aspect of the bar which makes me think that it has simply been added to make the texture of this chocolate so completely different to a Mars Bar.

                The caramel I think is exactly the same stuff that rots your teeth in a normal Mars Bar, only in a much thinner layer. It's not that kind of luxurious caramel that stretches and covers your chin as you bite either, it's just sort of 'there' and adds most of the flavour to the chocolate bar. The milk chocolate again is the same as that used in a normal Mars Bar; very cheap tasting and terribly sugary - not a good combination in my opinion, although millions of people enjoy their daily Mars so what do I know?

                Well, I know I didn't enjoy this bar of chocolate. At all. Even at four bars for £1 I still feel rather cheated as I had been expecting something a little different, perhaps in the vein of a Bueno or Senses bar - I'm not silly enough to have thought that this was going to be a low fat or low sugar bar as the famous Mars logo is completely visible on the front of each bar, but I was expecting something a little nicer than this!

                I'm sorry but I don't have the nutritional information to hand, I didn't keep any of the wrappers in my disgust at the chocolate - it's not going to be good news though as even eating just half of this bar will leave you with aching teeth all day!

                  Disadvantages

                  Delight fails to live upto it's name, in a rather undelightful way

                  Without going into too much detail about this products history or origins, lets just make one thing totally obvious, Mars needs to shoot the person who created these, then dump their body off the edge of the world so we couldn't possibly have any more of these totally appalling ideas the person is obviously capable of having.

                  As you can already tell, the product is nothing special, in fact it's rather terrible and dire, effectively it sees Mars try to copy a Nestle signature snack and improve on it, but sadly comes away as nothing more than an over-priced poor quality chocolate bar with a name that could well be deemed false advertising. The bar is slightly longer than a fudge, but sadly lacks the fudges charm that we're all too familiar with, the soft sweet treat our grans used to give us that holds memory of innocent childhoods. For some silly reason I bought it thinking it was a Kit Kat variation, and to be fair from the description this was understandable, "wafer covered in chocolate" type of bar. Sadly the bar seems to be a "cheap week old wafer covered in Mars chocolate".

                  The (un)Delight(ful) comes in 2-bits (one for you, and one for some poor tasteless fool, happy to accept a bit) each is about 2 inches long by about ¾ of an inch tall and wide with a "wave" shaped top. The chocolate cover is really quite attractive (one of the only delightful things about the bar) a nice rich smooth brown that seemed to glitter under the office lights and make it look genuinely like it was going to be nice. Alas the chocolate lies, the tales it made me want to believe were nothing more than a simple wish and on further inspection, it reveals it's actually a good cover to a poor bar. It's what's under the chocolate that causes the bars first problems, 2 types of creams (a caramel one and a chocolate one) covering a wafer. You'd have thought that was going to be nice, alas you'd have thought wrong, so very wrong.
                  With so much in the bar you'd have at least expected a little bit of raw flavour, a little something to taste feast your taste buds on right?...Wrong your taste buds feel like the proverbial third wheel, the bit missing out between your teeth and your stomach as the bar gives not even a hint of flavour. The best word to describe would be bland, a more accurate term would be relatively "tasteless". You get the taste of the chocolate but you'd expect that of any of the 4 big chocolate companies (Cadbury, Mars, Nestle and Galaxy) but even the flavour of that seems to have been "blanderised" (new word for you all there) but the odd cream fillings.

                  So onto the texture, of course the chocolate is smooth, it's Mars it has to be smooth, but that's where the expectations end. The wafer which you'd expect would be there to rival the likes of Kit Kat comes across as being very cheap and nasty, to say B class would doing a dis-service to B class, it could possible scrape a D if your generous. No real snap to it, or crunch just soft nothingness, perhaps it's the creams fault that the bar feels soft and misses the point of having a wafer, or maybe it's that idiot from the start of the review who decided "We are Mars, we can do whatever we want". Whatever the reason is doesn't matter, it's just not worth actually finding out.

                  However what is far worse than the bar being a substandard Kit Kat rip off is the fact Mars decided it's a "luxury" chocolate bar, you know the ones, like Kinder Bueno's, Double Deckers, the ones that are priced a good bit more than the typical Mars, Dairy Milk or Crunchie. For 50p, Mars have some how come to the conclusion that this is the right price for this relatively tasteless, small and unenjoyable chocolate bar. Sadly Mars who should now be issuing apologies and refunds to those of us who have actually stomached one, had better be re-thinking both the product and their pricing strategy.

                  Delight? Well there's irony if I ever saw it, unless of course, your perfect night is spent watching re-runs of The Bill whilst drinking bottled water and eating paper before bed at 9:00 PM. Yes the bar really is that unexciting and boring.

                    /

                    After school, I decided it was time for a little snack so I plodded off to the vendies in search of a little something to give me that sugar rush. Something caught my eye which had never done so before. Of course I had noticed it every other day I had been there but I had normally just gone for the products I knew, and liked. However today was different. Something jumped out at me -not literally-. The particular chocolate bar was a "Mars Delight". Mars delights have been around for years, though to that day I had never tried one. I guess I was a little worried it wouldn't live up to its brother the regular mars bar. However that day I decided enough was enough and so I slotted in my money and waited for it to drop...

                    In the particular vending machine at my school, the mars delight had cost me 50p. This was the most expensive thing in the vending machine, as everything else was selling for either 40p or 45p. I did think this was a little steep but I decided to not let it put me off and I trecked off home quickly in order to sample my purchase.
                    It was only when I was in Tesco the other day I realised how much I had been ripped off. The exact same chocolate bar was selling in Tesco for 36p. And then, the next day I was in the Esso garage and I spotted the bar selling for 39p. It was also part of an offer 4 for £1 in the garage however I passed up on the offer that particular day.


                    The mars delight is packaged in a rather fancy looking wrapper; the main colour being a pale yellow/light goldish. MARS is written in the usual red writing highlighted with gold and then black, sitting on a black and gold swirl. Next to the word MARS, Delight is written in smaller white writing, outlined in black allowing it too stand out. Next to the word delight there is a scrumptious looking picture of the bar contained inside. There are two of them, one with a bite out revealing a gorgeous looking centre. The packaging was very tempting and looked somehow "royal".

                    The back of the wrapper is home to the nutrition information, allergy information and ingredients. The nutrition is written in a little table in white writing which is quite difficult to read. Now the information is given per 100g and per 20g. When I first read the information it stated that 20g contained only 111 calories and 6.7g of fat. It was only when I opened the bar to tuck in that I realised there were two bars inside, and infact each of _these_ were 20g. So if you decided to indulge in the whole chocolate bar, you would be consuming 222 calories and 15.4g of fat. This is really only what can be expected, most chocolate bars sit around the 200-250 calorie mark and usually contain between 9-16g of fat.
                    The back of the wrapper also states information reguarding ingredients, again the information is written in white writing, meaning I had to strain my eyes. The ingredients are only really what you can expect, one of the main ones being sugar.
                    Allergy wise, the bars may contain traces of nuts so if allergic be careful when consuming.


                    I unwrapped the wrapper and was surprised to find that the chocolate bar, was in fact chocolate bars. Two smaller than normal but quite thick chocolate bars, lying "top to tail". I picked up one of the bars and gave a little sniff. There wasn't too much of a chocolate smell, however it was faintly there. The bar was a very unusual shape, not at all what I had been expecting. The bottom of the bar was flat and the sides of the bar came up into a sort of dome shape. The dome was actually ridges, and the ridges were quite deep at that. I am not exactly sure what the idea was behind the design but when I was holding I did realise that it was quite easy to hold onto, much easier than regular chocolate bars which have a tendancy to melt all over your fingers. Don't get me wrong however, after around a minute the milk chocolate began to moisten and I decided that was it telling me tuck in...

                    I picked up one of the fingers and took a little nibble off the end. On my first little taste I only bit off a tiny little bit of chocolate. The chocolate was exactly like that of a mars bar. Creamy and quite sweet too. The peice of chocolate I happened to bite off was really thick and my hopes were high for the rest of the bar. After I had sampled the milk chocolate I tried to suck a little of the creme from the centre, when I sucked however only a small amount came out from the end of the bar, however it was enough to set my tastebuds alight! The cream filling was infact very creamy, tasting somewhat of white chocolate with the slight hint of hazelnut (?) and milk chocolate. Considering that the prodcut doesn't contain any nuts it was quite a surprise. I then took a great bite from the other end, this time getting a taster of the wafer too. The wafer wasn't crunchy, but neither was it soft and soggy. The 3 combinations mixed together wonderfully, the creamy milk chocolate, the sticky and creamy cream filling and the delightful wafer too. Although the taste was scrumptious, in my opinion it didn't live up to its big brother, the delicious original Mars Bar. I wasn't overly disappointed though as I wasn't actually expecting it to be as good.
                    After I had finished I was left with a really sweet taste in my mouth and my craving for something sweet had been curbed.

                    The taste of the mars delight reminded me slightly of a kinder beuno. It also resembled the new "kit kat senses" however I do think the mars delight differed slightly.

                    5 Sense summary-
                    *Sound- n/a
                    *Texture- smooth milk chocolate, smooth fonadnt filling, crispy wafer
                    *Sight- Thick milk chocolate bar with ridged top
                    *Scent- slight milk chocolate
                    *Taste- delicious creamy milk chocolate, creamy and sweet cream filling, biscuity wafer

                    **

                    Overall I'd definitly reccomend these. They are most commonly found selling singly however they do come in multipacks, containing 5 regular sized (40g) bars. Around christmas time they can also be found in cardboard box type things, containing around 20 mini mars delights!

                    .

                    Mars Delight have been out for a few years now. Although they aren't my favourite Chocolate bars, I like 1 now and again. They are obviously made by Mars, as the title suggests, but seem to be different from any other Chocolate bar out there.

                    The wrapper to this is a cream colour and it has a black swirl on it, and the Mars writing in Red. Pretty much the same writing as you would find on a Mars Bar. There is a small picture of the chocolate bar on the front as well.

                    You can buy these in individual bars, and they cost about 45p or in 4 pack multipacks for about £1.40. I haven't seen the multipacks about in shops for a while, and not all shops stock the individual bars, so they can be few and far between to find these.

                    The Bars are 40g. They are split into 2 bars, so you can eat them individually and keep the other for later - yeah right!. The bars are quite thin and long and ridged at the top. The bottom of the bar is flat, and the ridges are quite deep and thick.

                    So what is the bar? It is Mars Milk Chocolate, and inside the chocolate is a wafer shell that is stuffed with toffee and nugget. The toffee and nugget is quite thinly spread, and the same kind of filling you would find in a Mars bar, but as I said a bit finer. You can still taste the Mars flavour throughout the bar, and I find these lovely, a nice change and not as heavy or sickly as normal Mars Bars. The taste is quite sweet, but not overly.

                    Nutrition wise these have 99 calories per 1 bar, and 5.5g fat, so a whole pack is just under 200 so not too bad for a chocolate bar.

                    I wouldn't recommend these are an amazing chocolate bar, as they seem quite simple, but I like the odd one for a nice change.

                    If you like Mars chocolate, you should love these!

                      Disadvantages

                      Top chocolate treat

                      I make no secret of my devilish sweet tooth. I like most convectioneries and one of my favourites over the last couple of years is Mars Delight. It consists of crisp wafer folds wrapped in a soft caramel cream, covered in smooth milk chocolate. Like a Bounty bar it comes in two smaller bars in a packet rather than one big bar.

                      If you bite into a Delight it crunches because of the wafer, but it quickly softens in the mouth. The sweet caramel is absolutely delicious, and combines with the wafer and milk chocolate for a taste sensation. I especially like that Mars don't skimp on the milk chocolate, so there is a chunky mouthful with every bite.

                      These will set you back the same amount as ay chocolate bar, 40 - 60 pence depending on where you buy it. Personally I buy mine in bulk at the supermarket to save money, as I know I want to have a supply in the house!

                      A standard packet (with two small pieces) with cost you about 200 calories, which isn't too bad on the chocolate bar front. It's not health food, but it's not too guilt inducing!

                      These won't be for everyone, they won't fill you up like a Snickers or a Mars bar, but they do taste great and you can have them in two sittings if you are watching your weight (like I always am) but I will warn you if you have one piece, it'll take some willpower not to continue on with the second piece right away!

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Great

                        **Introduction**

                        After watching my Beloved Manchester United move easily through to the fourth round at the expense of Southampton I decided to walk to the local newsagents to get a couple of chocolate bars. One of the bars I chose was Mars Delight which I had not bought for a while but was very impressed when it first came out on the market. Even though it is from the Mars brand it is pretty different in several ways to the normal Mars bar.

                        **Mars Delight**

                        If you are wondering what this bar is like then here is some information about the bar. It's middle is a crispy wafer which is surrounded by caramel cream, chocolate cream and is of course covered in Milk Chocolate. Inside the wrapper you will find two small bars which make up Mars Delight. They have a rippled milk chocolate pattern which covers the rest of the delightful ingredients.

                        **Price and Stockists**

                        You can easily find this bar in just about everywhere that sells the standard Mars bar and a variety of other chocolate. I paid 55p for my bar but you may be able to find the bar a little cheaper if you look around. You can also buy these bars in multipacks like the one shown with this review item. These are typically available for just over £1 or so. Which is about standard for a chocolate bar of this size.

                        **The Taste**

                        I really like the Taste of the standard Mars Bar and this Mars Delight is just as good. The crispy wafer centre combines really well with the chocolate and caramel creams which are the delightful fillings of the bar. Although the Milk Chocolate is not as thick as on other Mars confectionery it is still enough for the good of this bar. A superb tasting chocolate treat.

                        **Overall**

                        I am very impressed by Mars Delight and as the two bars combined only adds up to 198 calories it is also a pretty low calorie treat compared to other chocolate bars which will usually have around 250 calories in each bar. So in summing up Mars Delight are a very tasty chocolate treat which are great for a wide range of chocolate lovers old and young.

                          Disadvantages

                          have a mars bar instead

                          This chocolate bar appeared in a selection box I had for Christams and never having had one before I thought I would leave it til last and review it.

                          The bar weighs 40g and comes in a pale gold wrapper with 'delight' in big letters and Mars in smaller ones. The name and the pale colours would seem to give the impression that this is a low calorie or 'lite' bar but that is far from the truth at nearly 14g of fat per 40g .

                          The bar itself is seperated into 2 halves (bit like a bounty) so itook one half and bit into it-inside the coating of chocolate is a layer of rippled biscit which is really light and tasty, also there is a layer of caramel cream and chocolate cream which I found to be really artificial tasting and very stodgy. after the first half i was feeling a bit sick which is very unlike me! In the name of research i decided to carry on with the second half but I regret that now. The cloying cream layer sticks to your mouth leaving a not very nice after taste.

                          I'd rather 'spend' my calories on a mars bar, i wouldnt recommend this bar to anyone!

                            Disadvantages

                            Great for a change when you just want a nice treat

                            Right, you fancy a quick chocolate fix but seeing as the husband is so decision shy he needs written instructions on what to get you, you need to make your own choice. Galaxy is tempting but too plain for the occasion, your sophistication is questioned when you ask for smarties and a mars bar is too heavy. Hmmm, but there's an idea! Mars delight...

                            The packaging is a light beige which seems a lot more female friendly then the strong masculine block of the original Mars Bar so that alone makes the Mars Delight a more appealing option to me. It also looks quite posh which again is good. I think that settles it!

                            Upon opening the packet you are faced with 2 'toblerone-ish' shaped bars covered in mars chocolate. This is described by Mars as, 'a rippled wafter centre surrounded by caramel cream and chocolate flavoured cream covered i milk chocolate'. It does sound nice.

                            As you bite into your Mars delight the first thing you notice is a satisfying but not to harsh crunch. The wafer is surprisingly light and sets the other textures off lovely. I personally can't distinguish the 2 different creams inside but I can say that the combination of them is lovely and smooth and sweet - though not overly so. The wrapper claims the Mars Delight is 44% chocolate but this surprises me. In the overall experience the chocolate is lovely and creamy but more an after texture as you're munching the whole thing up.

                            I do enjoy a nice Mars Delight. I find normal Mars Bars too heavy but these are a lot lighter and just right, The wafer component has a lot to do with this. However, if you were to (not for the faint hearted) look at its nutritional information the Mars Delight contains 552 kcal and 33.6g of fat /100g. That's not great but hey, until they invent healthy stuff that tastes like this I'm sold!

                              Advantages

                              Disadvantages

                              Good chocolate

                              Mars Delight is a spin-off the well-known chocolate bar called Mars Bar. It features two short pieces with a rippled wafer centre surrounded by a sweet caramel flavoured cream, all coated in delicious milk chocolate.

                              The packaging is quite attractive and it looks like an expensive chocolate bar which it is. The classic Mars logo is imprinted on top of slightly glossy cream-coloured packaging bearing two pieces of Mars delight. The stylish white script that spells 'delight' and the touch of black behind the Mars logo really does give the packaging an attractive look. All nutritional information along with ingredients and a vague description is located discretely on the packaging. It is hard to say who Mars Delight is aimed at but I think that it is meant to appeal to teenagers and younger men and women.

                              The bar really is delightful to eat. The crisp wafer core enhances the taste of the delicious caramel flavour cream which carries a subtle hint of that trademark Mars caramel taste. The milk chocolate outer coating is surprisingly smooth and blends in brilliantly with the wafer and the caramel cream to deliver an smooth and crispy chocolate experience. In a way the taste feels very familiar and while it does have a good taste, it isn't anything extraordinary.

                              Because there are two short pieces, the bar is also perfect to share or you can indulge yourself twice! There is also a 'snack-size' bar and a multipack which contains four of these two piece bars.

                              A standard two-piece pack weighs 40g and each 100g of Mars Delight contain:

                              Energy: 2298 kJ, 551 kCal
                              Protein 4.3g
                              Carbohydrates: 54.8g
                              Fat: 34.9g

                              Overall, Mars Delight is a good chocolate bar that delivers a smooth and crisp taste but while it is a good taste, it is fairly unremarkable.

                                ~~~~ Mars Delight (Gift Box Full Of Little Ones) ~~~~


                                TRACES OF HAZELNUT AND ALMOND


                                240g e Gift Box (Not individual)


                                Made by: Masterfoods.


                                Product:

                                This is not the bar of Mars Delight, but a gift box full of approximately two inch long mini Mars Delights. I was given this box as a present. These people really didn't like me much or know about my love of chocolate (nice chocolate!).


                                Packaging:

                                The box is roughly three inches by three inches and is cream in colour with a red ribbon and red Christmas trees printed on the box. On the printed on gift tag on top of the box it says 'Mars Delight'.

                                Inside each roughly two inch bar is wrapped in a cream and brown wrapper with Mars written in red and Delight in white. There is also a yummy picture of the contents.

                                No, I can't eat another one....


                                Content:

                                After unwrapping, out slips a shiny chocolate bar of around two inches long, which has a rather rigid, rippled top to it. More like something you would find in Ann Summers. But no, this is a chocolate! Right!

                                On biting into the bar, it crunches and chocolate wraps itself around your teeth.

                                Looking at the bar you will see that the outer layer is chocolate of just over a millimetre thick, then there seems to be a rolled up tube of crunchy wafer throughout. Between the chocolate and wafer is a micro thin layer of caramel which somehow has the ability to make the wafer more palatable.

                                There, I've eaten it now!


                                Taste:

                                The chocolate was very nice, though a bit soft for my liking. The wafer tasted of cardboard and really let the snack down. The caramel was hardly there to make a decision over, as there was very little of it per bar. Would have to eat a fair few to get the taste for the caramel, which I am not going to do.


                                My Opinion:

                                I was lucky enough not to have brought these myself, and I am glad I didn't spend any money on this item.

                                No, I wouldn't go out and buy these as they are like a mouth full of wafer and cardboard with a bit of chocolate.

                                Being a chocolate lover, these did not rate highly on my list.
