Advantages: Good Promise.
Disadvantages: Lacking in Taste.
These seem to have the perfect promise, with things that go perfectly together. Nice, rich creamy chocolate, with crispy, chewy and soft fillings. However, they just don't seem to work.
The packaging is quite nice, with a simple design that is easy to spot on the shelf. The writing is big, making it easy to read. It's easy to open, and the product is always fresh afterwards.
The main idea, is to combine the different flavours as you please to create the taste of a Mars Bar. However, this fails, with just not having the same desirable taste and they don't melt in your mouth as much.
The layer of chocolate is very thin, almost too thin so the fillings become sickly after a while. Each different filling is ok, but each has something that could be improved. The crispy version doesn't have much taste, and is too hard. Next, the chewy ones are a little better, and are soft, melting in the mouth but just don't have the same great chewy, rich caramel flavour like Mars Bars do. Finally, the soft ones are ok, but again are lacking in flavour.
Also, they don't really deliver on the promise. Combining them doesn't remind you of a Mars Bar, with little taste and just a chewy mess in the mouth. All they do is remind you of how much you would like the real thing.
The quality is alright, but not very good compared to other brands such as Cadbury. You get little chocolate, and the fillings are poor with little taste.
The price isn't that bad, pretty similar to similar products. However, they do have quite a lot of sugar and calories.
Overall, not that bad but you will feel pretty disappointed after you have finished. They are lacking with each little variety needing something added. They just aren't as good as other products, so should really be avoided.
Summary: Disappointing, buy a Mars Bar instead.
