Nestle Lion Bar
Advantages: FIlling, Quite tasty, Crunchy sensation
Disadvantages: Nothing special, Average taste, Not worth 43p
Ok, well I have never tried a Lion bar in my entire life, and one is sitting here in front of me. I can't wait to indulge myself and find out what it's like, but I'm just going to run through a few other points too. I always thought this was the kind of chocolate bar that was expensive and average-tasting. It has never really been that popular, but I thought it would be good to try out something new.
This bar comes in a dark brown packet. On the front, it has a rather bold 'Lion' logo in yellow writing with a red outline. Just above is the nestle logo and to the left side is a cartoon sketch of a lion with it's mouth open wide. This suggests that the chocolate bar is full of power and RAWR! With a heavenly picture to the right side of the bar itself, cut in half so you can see the inside, I cannot wait to get this baby open! The picture is surrounded by a golden/peach light that contrasts a bit with the rest of the wrapper. It states on the back that the chocolate bar is 45g in weight, as well as the ingredients and nestle information.
Opening the packet and smelling the chocolate inside, it actually smells a bit sickly - very sweet. The chocolate bar itself is long and cylinder-shaped with a texture to it. It has little bumps on the top with a flat bottom. Some of the spots seem to have broken, and a white sugar is viewable.
As I bite into the chocolate, the immediate feeling is the crunchiness of the chocolate bar. With nougat in the middle as well as small crunchy balls, the taste is quite sensational. The chocolate gives it a very creamy taste and sweet taste. There is some kind of fudge in there too, which brings a chewy sensation when eating it. Also, the chocolate is slow to pull apart from the bar, as the toffee hangs on till you break the very last bridge, where the remains slowly droop down ready for the next bite. Overall it has a lovely taste, but not quite amazing. It seems very filling with lots of ingredients, giving it a heavy feel when eating it.
I purchased this bar for 43 pence at my local shop. I have heard of a king size version as well, which retails for around 60 pence. I wouldn't say the price is bad, because it is rather tasty and filling, so it will keep you going for a while.
Not very pleasing at all. The chocolate bar had quite a nice taste to it, but don't all chocolate bars? It was nothing special and didn't have a really addicting or lovely taste to it like other chocolate bars out there have. It was satisfying and quite filling, but at a price of 43 pence, I shall not be buying this again. I feel for the same price or pennies cheaper, you can get better chocolate bars.
Thanks for reading,
