Advantages: Cheap, great taste, good for weight concious
Disadvantages: Honeycomb can get stuck on teeth
I first tried these from the small celebration tins that were given to my family at birthdays and christmas. I didn't really ever think anything special of Maltesers at first, but now as time passed, I've grown to really like them. They are generally marketed as a chocolate that is good for those who are watching their weight as they are so light and have few calories, which has led my mum to only ever purchasing these as a sweet treat for herself, so they are generally in the house often.
The small packets of Maltesers generally cost around 40p from a newsagents, whereas a box of them can cost from £1 - £1.50. They are small honeycomb balls surrounded by a thin layer of milk chocolate, and if you eat too many they definitely do feel quite sickly (but this might just be my opinion!). As stated above, they are good for those who are watching their weight, as they always are quite light when you eat them.They come in small packets for you to enjoy as a snack or also as a box, if you have family or friends round, you'll find that the box can dissapear quite quickly!
Product quality is pretty decent on these and although the chocolate layer is quite thin on them, this probably helps them as it keeps their brand as light as possible, meaning they can appeal to those who are weight conciuous. You do get quite a lot within packets, and it's more than enough to stop that chocolate craving. The only problem is the fact that the center is honeycomb means it quite often gets stuck on your teeth and you have to spend ages picking at it.
Overall, this is a great chocolate brand to just snack on. It can appeal to anyone as chocolate lovers will love how it tastes while the weight concious will love that they don't have to feel guilty when eating them. I would recommend this chocolate to most people as they are really good quality and have a great taste.
Summary: Great chocolate snacks that even the weight concious can enjoy
