“ Brand: Nestle / Type: Truffle „
I have been dieting for a few weeks now, and even though I have managed the dieting without too many binges, I do feel that I should treat myself occasionally.
This was felt more keenly this weekend when,
A - I realised this is my husbands weekend off work (he only gets one in two weekends, this is our takeaway and alcohol weekend!)
B - I weighed myself Friday morning and realised I have finally lost my first stone.....woohoo, bout chuffing time!
So on a mission of mercy on Saturday...ok, it was the alcohol run for him indoors, decided to get some snacky bits to chomble on!
As you may be aware I am a bit of a chocolate fan so of course was drawn to the sweets aisles immediately, I am afraid that at first I was blinded by the sheer amount of choice, but after seeing these on offer my mind was made up!
The product I will now review is - "Nestle, Heaven - dark truffle"
These were first brought to my attention by my mum when they first came out, she went on about the fact that she kept meaning to try them soo much I ended up buying her 6 bars for Christmas, these were held in a festive special pack.
As soon as I saw these on the shelves of Asda's sweet aisle I knew I had to try it. I have previously tried the milk chocolate one and was suitable impressed, but this is dark chocolate, the nectar of the gods!
The chocolate bar is foil wrapped for freshness, then housed within a box, a little extreme package wise, but it does actually add to the effect.
The chocolate bar is very stylish, if that is the right word to use. The bar is thin, much thinner than say, a Cadburys chocolate bar.
The length of the bar is around the bog standard size of other bars available, the entire bar being made up of 12, 1" squares.
The outer chocolate is a dark brown and very shiny case, which holds a thin layer of dark chocolate truffle and cocoa pieces.
I was initially disappointed with the actual squares, due to the fact that these contain a truffle centre I felt they should have been a little thicker, after trying them though the amount of truffle was just perfect, anymore and it would have been far too sickly.
The taste is a true delight. The best way, in my humble opinion, to eat this is to take one square and let it dissolve slowly on the tongue. Not only does it make the chocolate go that little bit further, but intensifies the taste to the extreme.
Once the slightly bitter outer chocolate has dissolved, I would like to say completely but I have usually started chewing by then, you come to the inner truffle layer.
I was surprised to find that inside the soft and melting truffle layer there are some crunchy pieces, I assume that these are the cocoa pieces I mentioned earlier, at first this actually set my teeth on edge, not realising they were there as I started crunching the pieces are so small I thought one of my teeth had crumbled!
This is, however, a sensation that can be got used to, as I now have no trouble eating these!
The nutritional information is as follows -
For the ENTIRE bar -
43.0g of which sugars
20.9g of which saturates
This product contains milk, wheat and egg, and may also contain nuts.
These are currently on offer at Asda for £1.25 a bar, this is across the range and there are around four different bars available.
After I got over the crunchy aspect of this bar I now consider this as one of my favourites, recommended!
