Mars MaltEaster Bunny Bar
Advantages: perfectly proportioned, child friendly, moorish & novelty!
Disadvantages: Can become a bit too sickly sweet!
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.
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...
Each mars malteaster bunny (29g) contains 156 calories.
Mars malteaser bunnies are suitable for vegetarians.
No allergy advice is given on the packaging.
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!
Summary: I want a visit from the malteaster bunny every year!
