      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A nice little treat if bought on offer.

      I'm reviewing my MaltEaster Chocolate bunny. It costs 60p but can be found on offer in big supermarkets . ___________________________ I'd seen this around and had not been that interested because I assumed it was solid chocolate. I know, that seems irrational when Maltesers themselves are NOT solid chocolate, so I've no idea why I assumed that. However after reading reviews on it making it clear they AREN'T solid chocolate I decided it sounded rather to my taste . The wrapper is similar in colour to the Bags of Maltesers (bright red) and the slightly altered Malteser logo is prominent. So rather easy to spot on a shelf . Now to the product within. The bunny itself is really rather small at just over 3" in length. This is what I'd class as a minimalist bunny. He/she is just composed of an X shape representing the torso of the bunny , topped by a round head and huge ears.Very simplistic, with no detail other than a bit of a bump where the nose would be. Once you break the bunny in two you can see that the interior is composed of a creamy filling which is not solid, nor runny but somewhere in between. For me the consistency is very similar to fudge.....so semi solid . Similar to fudge in consistency but NOT in flavour. This is a very milky style 'fudge', and not buttery in the way true fudge is. Within the cream there are tiny beads of cream coloured honeycomb and I thought "OH NO, NOT THE HONEYCOMB BALLS !"......because I've come across those in so-called honeycomb ice cream and they are solid, like plastic , and simply refuse to break up. Awful things that have to be sucked to infinity . But I needn't have worried, because these little tiny beads in this bunny are precisely like miniature maltesers , but without the chocolate covering, so they melted satisfyingly in the mouth . The outer chocolate is the same Mars product type that covers Maltesers and is not sickeningly sweet.It blends nicely with the filling . The creamy interior is solid enough not to cause issues other than that some of the little honeycomb beads dropped out. But the cream itself is very nice and , as I said previously, not buttery or sickly sweet. And of course the honeycomb beads give it depth and a minor amount of crunch . So did I enjoy my bunny ? Yes I did. It was tasty and very true to the Malteser ethos , which I like. The only thing that might mark this down in my opinion is the simplistic design. Yes it was fine for me but if you buy this for a little child they will probably expect bunny eyes and a bit more detail. Holly (age 4) was disappointed and thought it should at least have a bunny bobbly tail and I tend to agree with her . If they can give him a tiny nobbly/dimply nose then a tiny bump where his scut would be should be do-able. But that's just me (and Holly) being pedantic really . Would I buy it again ? I might if it is on offer, but I wouldn't pay 60p for such a tiny treat that is gone in 3 or 4 bites . Thankfully I got these in Tesco on offer at 3 for £1 .20 , so that price suited me. At 60p each I would still be wondering what they taste like to be honest because I just wouldn't pay that for one . There is no mention of nuts, vegan issues or allergy info on the wrapper, but there IS a full list of ingredients on there should you need to check for something in particular regarding allergies or preferences. Would I recommend these bunnies ? Yes, of course. They are from a reliable brand name , taste really nice and look cute (if somewhat bare). I'm removing a star for the lack of detail(and price) because I really think kids would like detail to admire before chomping the bunny's head off. Thank you for reading~~~myloh.

        Love them and so glad I've found them

        I am now officially addicted to Mars Malteser's Bunny Bars. I eat far too many of these and have at least one per day, usually in the afternoon when I am sitting in a lecture. They are only available at Easter time as they are a seasonal chocolate bar but I am going to have to buy loads to last me through the rest of the year in case I can't get my hands on them after Easter has been and gone. I buy mine from Morrison's where they are £1.20 for three and they have them on sale in the sweetie aisle and also at the tills, just in case you happen to forget to pick one up while you are doing your shopping. They are really creamy and very delicious and not as sickly as you might think they would be, considering they have a kind of mushed up paste type consistency in the middle of them. They are, of course, shaped like a little bunny rabbit and they are designed to appeal to kiddies, I suppose because of the shape, but adults I am sure, will love them too. They taste of delicious Malteser's chocolate but they are not crunchy in the middle, they are smooth instead, which makes a nice change. They are very rich but I can still eat all three of them in one sitting, no bother at all though they do make you very thirst as the chocolate is very thick. No doubt they are creamed full of fat and sugar but I still love to eat them. If you haven't taste one before then I really do recommend that you do because you won't be disappointed. Just a lovely tasty chocolate treat.

          A thoroughly enjoyable seasonal treat.

          I'm not always a chocolate fan, I can go through periods of several months where I don't seek it out. That said, I live in Yorkshire so in the bleak mid-winter there is an almost primeval urge to stock up on calories to see you through to warmer and hopefully drier times. Christmas chocolate is good, but it's a bit much like normal chocolate to be anything special. There are the stalwarts such as maltesers teasers, cadburys caramel etc., but it's only once Christmas is done with that chocolate comes into its own. Thanks to the marketing gods the build up to Easter seems to begin on Boxing Day. Of course they have to fit Valentine's Day into the schedule - but the under 12s are not really going to bring in the big bucks, so out come the disposable Easter treats. The sort of thing that you can convince an unwitting parent (or unsupervised adult) picking up in the offer section conveniently near the till, just as a little treat. These aren't for putting away until the Easter bunny comes, or for hiding in the garden - they are purely there for pleasure. This category of treats includes the creme and caramel eggs, and of course mini eggs. More recently, malteser have been making a play for the 'disposable treat' market in the last couple of years have introduced the humble MaltEaster bunny. They weigh in at 29g each, and consist of what tastes like the filling of maltesers turned into a semi-solid paste through some vigorous mushing. I'm not doing it justice, it is rather creamy and tastes delicious. This is coated in a layer of milk chocolate to give it the real malteser effect. And it's shaped like a bunny! It's much less of a melt in your mouth experience than a regular malteser, but that's partly because you're not getting the usual amount of air, just pure malteser. One down side (for anyone who fancies sharing, although why would you?) is that if you want to split the bunny in half it inevitably splits around the ears or neck area, leaving one person much happier than the other. They are not exactly a health food, you can find full ingredient lists elsewhere, but they are suitable for vegetarians. They are also not that cheap, selling individually for around 60-70p. Thankfully they are regularly on offer in a variety of supermarkets such as Sainsburys who are currently selling 2 for £1 or Tesco, who were recently offering 3 for £1.20. Overall I would highly recommend these to any malteser fan out there. Grab them while you can as you only get them for around 3-4 months of the year - can you think of a better excuse to stock up?

            I want a visit from the malteaster bunny every year!

            When it comes to choosing a chocolate treat that's light on your stomach I always opt for malteasers and when I was looking down the seasonal isle in my local supermarket I noticed these little malteaster bunnies as seen as malteasers are one my favourites I thought I'd give them a try as they would make a change from a crème egg or a hollow Easter egg and thought my children might prefer them too! ~Malteasers & Mars = malteaster bunnies~ Maltesers are a confectionery product manufactured by Mars. They are most popular in Denmark, the UK, Australia, Switzerland, Spain, Ireland, Canada, Poland, France, Hong Kong, and Portugal and they were created 1936, and first sold in 1937. As well as the original malteasers mars also produce white malteasers and malteaster bunnies which have been around since Easter 2010 in their malteaser range. ~ Price & Availability ~ Mars Malteaser bunnies are available to buy before and during the Easter period from all major supermarkets and are usually taken off the shelves around April. They are available to buy singularly (29g) for around 60p each, in packs of 5 (5x29g) for around £2.50 and in bags filled with mini bunnies (58g) for around £1.00. ~Packaging~ Mars malteaster bunnies in a little rectangular red packet (similar to malteasers themselves). On the front of the packet there is a little chocolate bunny with it's ear bitten off to reveal a honeycomb center. Above this is the words malteaster written just the same as the mars malteasers are and below a product description; milk chocolate bunny with a crunchy & creamy malteasers centre'. In the left hand corner there is a little box giving you a quick view of how many calories are in each bunny and adjacent to this the actual malteasers logo itself. On the back of the packet you will find the full nutritional information, an ingredients list and Mars contact details. ~Appearance, smell, taste & Texture ~ Opening the packet you get a very cute little bunny shaped treat covered in glossy chocolate. Roughly I'd say it was about 4cm in height and 1.5cm across, so they are pretty small. As soon as I opened the packet I could smell all the elements of a malteaser - sweet chocolate and honeycomb! Giving it a bite you get lots of little crushed up malteasers in a blanket of sweet, malty tasting cream which is nice and thick and holds the whole treat together. The malteaser pieces are nice and aerated and crisp with that distinctive melt in the mouth feel that contrast with the creamy filling beautifully. The chocolate coating is very smooth, sweet, creamy and easy to sink your teeth into - just like the chocolate on normal malteasers and blends into the malty filling perfectly. The whole bunny with all its elements - chocolate, honeycomb and cream is extremely Moorish but also very, very sweet so I don't think I could handle more than one even though they are so small! But I'm sure I'll give it a try when temptation overtakes me... ~Other information~ Each mars malteaster bunny (29g) contains 156 calories. Mars malteaser bunnies are suitable for vegetarians. No allergy advice is given on the packaging. ~Overall opinion~ These little novelty bunny easter treats are delightful! For me they are the perfect size to give you a sweet chocolate hit, any bigger and they might become a bit too sickly sweet. I think they are the perfect easter-themed chocolate for children instead of a huge, boring hollow easter egg because of their novel bunny shape and will definitely bare this in mind when buying easter treats for the younger children in my family. However they are not just for children, I find them extremely enjoyable and taste just like mars malteasers, just with added chocolatey taste and creamy, silky filling! Although I wouldn't recommend mars malteaster bunnies if you don't have a sweet tooth as you certainly need one with these!

              why do they only come out at easter, cant we have a maltChristmas reindeer!

              A few years ago I was given a maltEaster bunny after seeing an advert. I love malteasers and wasn't sure if it would taste as good. I enjoyed it more than malteasers and now I buy one whenever I see one (its a good job I don't food shop often!) The bunny is wrapped in a plastic foil packet. This keeps the bunny fresh for longer. The outside is a red packet like all malteaser products with a picture of the delicious bunny. Inside is a 29 gram bunny which is just enough before becoming too sweet. The bunny looks just like a bunny and is a milk chocolate. The chocolate is quite thick and encased in the chocolate is a creamy delicious malteasers filling. That is my favorite bit, some is smooth and some is crunchy. This chocolate is suitable for vegetarians, phew, it is not a real bunny! I usually buy these for about 60 to 70 pence each. This is quite expensive for the size but often they are on 2 for a £1 at the co op. The best before date is just over a year from when I bought mine. This is no problem though, it was eaten within the day. Lastly, I'm sure everyone will be relieved to know that "no actual malteasers were hurt during the making of this bunny." That's a relief!

                A sweet little Easter treat in more ways than one!

                One of close friends is a Malteser fanatic, so she was horrified to doscover I had never eaten a chocolate Malteser bunny, oherwise known as the Malteaster.. She generously bought me one to try and I am now converted. I thought they were a bit expensive when I first saw them, but they do seem to be on price promotion quite often and I think they are nice enough to just about justify the cost. The bunnies are little rabbit shaped milk chocolates with the classic Malteser malt filling and "crisp, light honeycomb pieces". You can buy an individually red wrapped bunny weighing 29g for around 60 - 70p, but nearly everywhere that I have seen selling then are offering them on a 2 for £1 offer. I think that this size would make a sweet little gift for a friend at Easter if you are not going to buy them an actual egg. I mainly give eggs to family but we have a sort of mini Easter secret santa at work and these will be the perfect size for that. I have noticed that Sainsbury's are offering a 4 pack of these for £2 at the moment, which is obviously better value and it isn't too early to buy them now for Easter as the best before dates are long past that. Those come in a cardboard tray which makes the packaging look a bit more substantial. I quite like the red package though - it instantly reminds me of the Maltesers bags. The rabbits I have in my cupboards at the moment are the mini version, which come in a bag of 5. They are called mini becuase they aren't as big or thick as the regular bunnies - they weigh 11.6g. I paid £1 for these in the Co-op, and I have seen them for £1.30 in my local convenience store. The reason why I have bought these is to use as a cake decoration - once they are out of their wrappers of course. I think the smaller size will mean that I could sit them up on a large cake without them being top heavy. Otherwise I will lie them flat on the icing surface as a quick decoration. The other bag will be making it's way to my nieces and nephews home to be used in their annual easter egg hunt. The fact that each rabbit is individually wrapped should keep the chocolates in a hygenic state while they are waiting to be found! The ccocolate is proper delicious milky chocolate which is a nice surprise. You can tell it is good quality chocolate as soon as you get that nice smell on opening the pack. I have sometimes found that Easter eggs from sweet brands seem to use a cheaper and less tasty chocolate which I don't really see the excuse for if it is still baring the same branding. Anyway, I have no complaints about this because it is smooth and there is plenty of it. The actual bunny shape is clear too - it isn't one of those sweets that you will have to stare at a few times before you can tell what it actually is supposed to be. The rabbit is sitting down and is seen face on with ears erect, looking very cute. The centre is crispy and tastes exactly like a regular Malteser. I didn't get much taste of the honeycomb pieces but they probably add to the satisfying crunch. I like the fact this gives just the right amount of chocolate for you to feel that you have had a treat but it isn't so much that eating one in one go feels too sugary. I think it helps not to have a caramel or fondant centre like many of the mini eggs do such as the Cadbury Cream ones. One of my favourite little bunnies still contains 7% of an adults recommended maximum amount of sugar and 10% of the fat. Something like this is always going to be an occasional treat for me, but compared to the likes of a large Easter egg, it isn't going to be too naughty a one. If you like Malltesers, I am sure you will like the bunnies. They are nice to eat whether you are feeling "Eastery" or not, but no doubt they will disappear after that until next year. Thank goodness we have the standard Maltesers to see us through until then! Buy the bunnies at most supermarkets and newsagents, and yes, they are suitable for vegetarians!

                  Small, tasty snack with an insane amount of calories

                  I decided to try these when they were on offer 3 for £1.20 in Tesco and I'm not going to lie it was one of the best decisions I have ever made!! They come in a small red package (reminiscent of the usual Malteaser packets) with a chocolate bunny on the front and ingredients/calorie content information on the back (avoid this if you're calorie conscious....). They're about 3 or 4 inches long (so very small, unfortunately) and usually cost around 60p though there are a lot of deal on over the easter period. When you open it, the chocolate is shaped like a bunny, it has a malted lower base (similar to regular malteasers) and a creamier centre with crunchier pieces in and it is completely coated in chocolate. Personally, I think these are a perfect improvement on normal malteasers. I love the original, however, the creamier section adds something to them which in my opinion makes them that much tastier. They're just the right amount of crumbly and I really cannot sell the taste enough. Problems I have found are that they are way too small, especially for the calorie count they come attached too. So all in all, I don't think that 60p is a fair price, they're half the size of a regular chocolate bar and the same price. They are also way too moreish - I bought a packet intending to have one every day, however, ended up eating all 3 in one go (this may also be testiment to how small they are). Overall, I would suggest these are very worthwhile as long as you are only expecting a small treat, don't care about calorie content and are aware that you could probably get more for your money with a different chocolate. I have to say, that in my opinion, the taste is so worth it at least once over the easter period!

                  Overall amazing I love these little beauties

                  These are quite possibly THE nicest little chocolate treats ever!! I first found these last easter in the supermarkets, normally found at the tills or at the promotional end of an isle. During the height of the Easter period they are at their most exspensive, this being around 50p a bar or 2 for £1, further away from Easter you can pick them up for 3 for a £1 or if your lucky like me; pick up these beautys at the end of April in Asda for a stealing price of 14p (and yes, of course I stocked up on them) **** Packaging & Availability **** So these are a small treat, the packagining is only 4 inches in height (and the bunny is side is even slightly smaller). Each one comes in a bright red packaging with the description ' milk chocolate bunny with a crunchy & creamy Maltesers centre'. You can pick these up from almost all supermarkets through the Easter period, however after this you don't see them as often; however personally they still have a market as a permenant product rather than just seasonal as they are simply so nice. **** Taste & figures **** Ok now as I keep mentioning, these are tiny, 29g to be more precise and they packa lot of punch; 157 calories in one of these bad boys **eeek**, however this is over come on how good they taste. I don't eat maltesers all the time; I find when you bite into them, they can be quite hard at times, however these are beautiful. They literally melt in your mouth and you just want to keep going back for a bit, however after 3 it's gone.

                  A tasty Easter bunny

                  I noticed these Maltesers special Easter edition chocolate bars last year and since I enjoy trying new products was very tempted to try them, however, I managed to resist said temptation at the time. Well today when I saw them in WHSmiths I could no longer resist when I saw them on offer at the price of 2 for £1 ( I was using up some money on a gift card, so felt I could justify the treat!). The chocolate comes in a small packet in the characteristic red colour of the regular Maltesers products. You are reassured on the back of the product that "No actual Maltesers were hurt during the making of this bunny"! The packet is easy to tear open and is foil lined on the inside to keep things fresh. The bar itself is shaped like a simple cute waving bunny to keep in with the Easter theme. The product has two components, the outside is a smooth thick layer of Maltesers chocolate. The inside of the product is a creamy malt based filling which has a slight crunch as per the honeycomb centre of the classic Malteser balls. Unlike this regular product, however, the honeycomb centre is not a solid piece but is rather crushed within the creamy cocoa butter filling. I found this texture to be great as it retains the basis of the original while offering something slightly different. The downside of the product is that it is quite small for the price, at only 29g. Also, as you may expect, being a chocolate confectionary product it is not very good for you and contains 157kcal. Overall I did enjoy the product as a seasonal treat. If you want to try it, however, you may need to be quick since it may be hard to find after Easter. As mentioned above, I purchased the product in WHSmiths but I have also seen it in Boots and would expect it to be fairly widely available at this time of year. Thank you for reading.

                  One of my favourite chocolate treats

                  I first came across the Mars Malteser Bunny Bar last year. Once I had one I couldn't resist buying one every time I saw them. This wasn't for long as in my local area they sold out very quickly as word got around how moreish these Bunny Bar are. They retail at about 60-65 pence each or many supermarkets sell 2 for £1. They have been on sale since last year and are put out for sale between approx January to Easter. The fine print on the label describes them as a: Milk Chocolate bunny, with a crunchy & creamy texture. They are in a small package and weigh 29grams. They have 157calories and are suitable for vegetarians. Ingredients-: sugar, vegtable fat, skimmed milk powder, cocoa butter, barley extract, cocoa mass. whey powder, lactose, full cream milk powder, milk fat, glucose syryp, emulsifier (soya lecithin), wheat flour, raising agents (E341, E500, e 501) salt, natural vanilla extract. (Traces:egg). Milk Chocolate contains milk solids 14%. I quite like Mars Maltesers which I eat them every now again but these Bunny Bars are much nicer. They are in the shape of a bunny and inside is similar to Maltesers but with a slighty different less crunchy centre. The best bit is the thickest part of the Bunny where the tummy is and when you bite through this part it just seems so delicious. I could eat these unlimited but have to restrain myself + just have about 3 a week. The Malteser Bunny Bar is perhaps my favourite chocolate treat from a main stream brand. They can be eaten in 2 or 3 mouthfuls so don't last long and leave you wanting another one but this is probably due to their taste.

                  Not for me

                  I was in town today and doing some shopping in Boots. When I got to the counter I noticed the MaltEaster bunnies on sale for 69p and I decided that it was about time that I tried one! As it happens I wasn't actually charged for it but I didn't ask whether this was deliberate or not - I just picked up my free bunny and scarpered! The packet is bright red - the same colour as the boxes and packets that Maltesers come in - with a Red Nose Day logo on the front. It says that Mars are official sponsors of Comic Relief and on the back of the packet it explains that they are trying to raise over one million pounds for the charity and for each bunny sold they will donate 2p to the fund. That's a lot of bunnies they need to sell then - let's hope there are other fund raising ideas too! The writing on the wrapper tells us that this little treat is a 'milk chocolate bunny with a crunchy and creamy Maltesers centre'. The bunny himself is a flat but fairly thick shape and stands about three inches or so tall. He weighs just 29g but does contain 157 calories. Such a lot of calories for such a little chap! When I unwrapped the bunny he looked and smelled very tempting in his milk chocolate coving although I have to say that the resemblance to an actual rabbit is negligible! That is probably just as well as Mew was sitting on my lap as I was eating this and he loves to catch rabbits - if it had been realistic he might have pinched it off me! LOL! I bit into it and the chocolate began to melt in my mouth. The centre does indeed have that crunchy Malteser feel and taste to it but there is a creamy quality added into it as well which for me spoils it a bit. I found it a bit too sickly for me and was glad that it was just 29g as any more would have been too much for my palette. In conclusion I enjoyed it for what it was but would have preferred a packet of Maltesers as I find the purely crunchy centre much less sickly. Of course that is purely my own particular taste and I am sure that lots of people love them!

                    A cute chocolate bunny with honeycomb pieces inside

                    I am the proud owner of three gorgeous house rabbits (yes, I recently adopted a third at the end of 2010) and love all things bunny related. I also love chocolate, so the lead up to Easter is a great time for me! I usually go for the adorable Lindt chocolate bunnies with the cute bells on, but have recently seen these little Malteser bunnies and decided to give them a try. The chocolate bar weighs in at 29g and costs 65p each or currently on offer at 2 for £1.00 in Tesco's. The packaging is very attractive and eye-catching. It has the standard red colour that Maltesers normally use for their packaging, and there is a picture of the chocolate bunny peeping out of a rabbit hole. They have also cleverly named the product "MaltEaster Bunny" which is a neat little play on words. I was interested to read on the packet that they are an official partner of Red Nose Day. "The Maltesers brand is hoping to raise over £1 million for Comic Relief. For every special MaltEaster Red Nose Day pack sold we will donate 2p to Comic Relief." Product description: "Milk chocolate bunny with a crunchy & creamy Maltesers centre." The chocolate bar itself looks great and has a fun feel to it. It is moulded into the shape of a bunny standing upright giving us a cheeky wave! He has long pretty ears and is a good size for a small snack (or so I thought before I started eating it!) It looks very cute and it is almost a shame to have to bite into it... The bar is quite thick and has a milk chocolate outer coating. This is very smooth and sweet and has a traditional milk chocolate flavour to it. The inner section has a creamy filled centre with bits of Malteser honeycomb sections dispersed throughout. I started to nibble away at this chocolate bar and by the time I got half way through I actually had to put the second half down and take a little breather before consuming the rest. Why? Because it is incredibly sickly sweet! I have a massive sweet tooth and adore all sorts of sugar filled treats, but this one was very rich and sickly and half the bar was enough for me in one sitting. The inner filling has a nice contrast of textures, with the creamy centre and the crunchy honeycomb pieces. The flavours all blend together when you're eating it and it just gives a nice overall sweet flavour. This chocolate bar is very tasty as long as you are prepared for a strongly sugary taste, and I would recommend just having half the bar if the sweetness is too much for you. I don't know if I would have been able to recognise this as a Maltesers product without the packaging as it doesn't have such a strong malty biscuity flavour as the traditional Maltesers sweets do. In my opinion this is a nice Easter treat but not something I would want to buy regularly.

                      If someone offered, I wouldn't refuse, but I'm not forking out for any more of these.

                      I love Malteasers, their delicious little pockets of honeycomb dissolve so nicely in the mouth and the chocolate can be eased off with your tongue. Lighter than ordinary chocolate? Well I'll have twice as many then.... Time to try the bunny. Seeing as Christmas has been over for all of a week, the shelves in the supermarket are now full of Easter Eggs and other such goodies. Jumping on the back of the trolley, I flew down the aisle, puling faces at my baby who was snuggled up in the seat. Too early for proper Easter Eggs, even by my standards, but the cunning mini versions seem like a good treat to buy yourself while you wait for Chocolate Day. I flung two MaltEaster bunnies into the trolley. Two for £1? When did choclate get so pricey? It used to be that it only cost a few pence in any shop other that Blockbuster Video. Normally these are 55p. About average for a bar, but slightly higher than the small filled eggs, which retail at 40p. These struck me as a better idea than the Creme Eggs or the Galaxy Caramel version; while still pocket sized, the consistency means that you don't see then in a crumpled mess where some kid has poked a finger through the foil. They don't squish in your handbag or ooze in the glove box. They retain their shape well - but not a pretty delicate shape, more of a face on Playboy Logo. The red packets slid open easily and I tucked in. A thick layer of chocolate covers a 'crunchy and creamy' centre. And taste wise these aren't that nice. The layer of biscuit at the bottom is a bit hard and if you start at the top, there's no creamy filling on the ears, in fact, almost nothing until you reach the face. There's an even spread of honeycomb throughout the sickly and non-descript filling, but the Nestle chocolate (nice in small doses on Malteasers) is somehow too thick and almost salty. I just felt thirsty and unsatisfied when I finished. Usually things that are bad for you taste good, this is an exception.

                        They need to be on the shelves all year round.

                        Malteaster Bunnies What are they? ************ They are a spin-off from Maltesers. Special features? ************* A chocolate shaped milk chocolate bunny with a crunchy and creamy Malteser honeycombe centre. What do I think? ************* I actually prefer this so much more than the original Maltesers, I wonder if they could actually do a normal chocolate bar of this. This tastes so much nicer and there is a lot more chocolate with this. The honeycombe centre is much firmer and creamier than the original so it tastes almost like praline or Belgium chocolate, and all of this creamy velvety centre is covered in thick, and again creamier than the original, milk chocolate. It looks like a very small bunny shaped bar, but when you open it up, the vast thickness of it makes up for its size, and there is certainly an ample portion here. It costs only around 55p which is a bit dear, but if it was made into a normal shaped chocolate bar I would still pay the same price for it, so please make one and I'll buy it! I've been looking thrugh the ingredients to see what has made it taste so different and much nicer, and it seems to be the 'malt' filling, and it takes up 34% of the bar - their secret ingredient! I think if they added this or whatever extra stuff they put in here to the original Maltesers, they would taste as good as this too, and again I would definitely buy them more frequently. The packaging is very cute too, with little pretty floers and butterflies, it almost looks like a Valentine's chocolate gift, although I wouldn't mind receiving this at that time of year...it's a shame, these are so good and fantastic that they really should think about producing and selling them all year round... Thanks for reading. xx © Leighsa 2010.

                        Very tasty little bunny

                        Over Easter Mars released MaltEaster bunnies, me and my partner were totally addicted to them, every trip to the supermarket involved a purchase of a bunny each, and all our relatives received a MaltEaster egg but to out disappointment you only got 3 in the very large box, for those who have never tried one it was a similar to the Malteasers you get in the Celebrations boxes but larger and in the shape of a bunny rabbit. After Easter they discontinued the chocolate bunnies and the supermarkets sold them off for 50p each which is still quite expensive for the amount of chocolate you get compared to other bars, I think they were about 69p over Easter. Both I my partner and I bought a large amount of these to 'keep us going.' To our disappointment we ate the last two tonight following a lovely meal. I just hope they bring them out for Easter 2011 if not before.
