      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A light chocolate treat from Mars.

      I'm reviewing Mars Milky Way Crispy Rolls. My box of five packs cost just £1 in Poundworld . Box contains 125g (5 x 25g packs) WARNING *MAY CONTAIN HAZELNUT* ____________________________________________ ***WHAT THEY ARE*** The large "Milky Way" logo on the packaging leaves you in no doubt that these are modeled on the popular Milky Way treat. They consist of fingers of lightly whipped white vanilla substance (not fondant and not the Milky Way centre.....but something in between those two) which are enclosed all round in a thin layer of crispy wafer and then coated in a pleasing Mars milk chocolate. The vanilla centre is firm but not hard , definitely not too squishy or soft either. I store mine in the fridge, but that is just my personal preference for most chocolate bars and is not a necessity for this one in the least. Storing in a cupboard is fine. Each little chocolate finger is about 8cms long and there are two of these in each packet. They are slightly broader than a kit-kat finger but nicely rounded in shape, like a little log really, and are just the right size for a kiddy treat without being too filling . ***MY OPINION*** These are really delicious, but they are undoubtedly very very sweet , so if you can't handle excessive sweetness they may not be to your taste. On the other hand little children love them precisely for that extreme sweetness I think. They are also small enough to satisfy parental worries regarding these kind of treats, and light enough to eat that they won't damage tiny teeth . These are also available as individual packs of two fingers from many outlets , but I'd advise you buy the multi pack of five because they are obviously much better value and are available in most POUND shops working out at 20p per unit, as opposed to around 40p+ to purchase the single ones from a confectionery counter in a garage, corner shop or supermarket. Would I recommend them ? Yes I would. They are light, but sufficient to satisfy a sweet craving between meals.

        lovely little tasty treats

        I love anything sweet and am always on the look out for new things to try. Recently I spotted these milky way crispy rolls in my local Tesco store and as I love milky way bars I thought I would give them a try. As stated I purchased a 25g pack of the milky way crispy rolls from my local Tesco express store for £0.30. The pack contains two individual rolls which consist of a milk chocolate covered wafer biscuit with a light whipped filling. The crispy rolls come packaged in a plastic wrapper which is blue with stars on and looks very similar to a normal milky way except from the picture on the front of the rolls and the packet being a little longer. On the front of the wrapper there is a small square which tells you that each roll in the pack contains 65 calories. One the back of the wrapper you can find more detailed information about the crispy rolls including full ingredients listings, nutritional information, storage instructions and allergy information. The rolls are easy to remove one at a time from the packet and look like sticks of solid milk chocolate with the wafer neatly concealed inside the rippled chocolate. When you bite into one of the rolls you get a great contrast in textures from the smooth chocolate, crispy wafer and then the very creamy filling inside. Personally I found these crispy rolls to be very Moorish indeed and the two rolls didn't last me very long at all. The rolls are quite small but I found them quite sweet and I think eating anymore than one pack would make them a little too sickly so they made a perfect treat for when you want to curb your cravings but do not want to overindulge and blow the calorific count completely. I think these milky way crispy rolls are lovely and I will certainly be purchasing them again in the future. They do look like they are aimed at children from the packaging but I think they are perfect for any age as they are very yummy indeed. I also think these rolls would also make great luxury wafers to add to ice cream sundaes and desserts.

          A great little snack

          I've been buying these milky way rolls for a few years now. Although I never buy them as a daily purchase I like to treat myself to a pack every now and again. I bought myself one from my local newsagent for 50p, but they can also be found from all major supermarkets and other stores. The packaging looks identical to the picture above and has not changed. It states that there are no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives in the chocolate and that it contains 64 calories per piece. The back of the packaging just states that it contains milk chocolate covered wafer biscuit fingers, with a lightly whipped filling. Now if you have never tried these before, I really do recommend purchasing it as I love them!.. and i'm sure you would too.. they are delicious. It is a light snack and so you do not feel too bad after eating it. I also really like kinder bueno chocolates and the inside of these milky way crispy rolls do remind me of them. The filling is a bit harder than kinder bueno chocolates but it makes a really nice combination with the chocolate wafer biscuit. They are easy to bite into and do not crumble apart causing a mess. Children would also be sure to love them and they would also be a perfect little chocolate snack. The packaging states that the chocolate is only 29% of the bar and the lightly whipped filling to be 47% and so you can see that the whipped filling is really the main part of the snack. Although it is a milky way brand these do not have the same kind of filling as the actual milky way chocolates so do not get confused between the both. There are two crispy rolls in a packet and they really would satisfy any sweet tooth cravings, although being light they are quite filling and so you would not be dissapointed. Thanks for reading :)

            A great treat for adults and kids alike

            As it's my birthday week in my household, it's often the time at which certain delectable treats appear in the fridge and cupboards. This week has been no different to this tradition, as last night I discovered a box of Milky Way Crispy Rolls in the fridge. I was initially really taken in by the packaging as I study Graphic Design at uni, and have designed a few packaging ideas in my time. Although I'm fast approaching 20, I think for young children this would really appeal to them, and it's also fairly easy to break into. The box is made from light card meaning it can be recycled. So onto the Crispy Rolls! Inside each wrapper, there are two bars, which are chocolate coated and contain a crispy shell and then the inner filling. At first, I imagined the inside would be as soft and fluffy as the inside of milky way bars are, but the filling is slightly harder and more solid. However, it is still pretty easy to bite so you could still give this to young children without the fear they would choke on it, it also melts nicely if you dip it in a cup of tea also! The taste of these bars are absolutely delicious, so much so that you will want another one straight after having one! They have that same lightness to them as Kinda Bueno's have, yet they are equally as satisfying and as I mentioned, are great with a cup of tea! Although this product can be bought separately, if you buy a box as we did, it contains 6 individually wrapped bars (for your kids, this would equal one for each day of the packing up and one left over for you!). I think this would be ideal in a lunchbox as a sweet treat, as its low in fat (3.2g)/5% RDA and sugars 6.8g/8% RDA. I would really reccomend trying this product if ever you come across it in your local supermarket. It's not as widely available as Milky Way bars, but it's a nice treat if you do find them on the shelves and you certainly won't be dissapointed!

              great snack during diets and for kids

              The Milky Way Crispy roll is better than the original Milky way. The sweet was not around for a while but now I can get them in my local garage, my work shop & at tuck shops. The sweet has a low calorie count and is the perfect diet snack to treat you. There are no artifical colours, flavours preservatives in the sweet also so it would be ideal for a child's snack also. So here is my complete review of this product PACKAGING I bought my milky ways in a pack of 6. The box has the original milky way packing the blue and yellow with stars on it but shows the picture of the crispy rolls at the front with a picture of wheat and chocolate. The box opens from the side and lifts at the front - easy enough access to get to the tasty treat. The back of the box holds all the nutritional values on it. The bar has two fingers within them. PRODUCT In each bar you will have two chocolate fingers. The fingers are about an adult's index finger to thumb in length and are in a tube like appearance. In the middle of each finger is the delicious creamy Milky Way filling which is the same style as the original Milky Way, then you have the thin wafer tube which holds the filling and then the chocolate coating on top of this. The tasting of the product is great - when you bite into one of the fingers you instantly get the crunch of the wafer and then taste the smooth filling. The filling is creamy but sweet but tastes sensational. It is a light and tasty snack for any one. The combination of the filling, wafer and milk chocolate coating works well and will not be too overpowering or sickly. PRICE The price of the single items varies from 30p to 55p. On average I would say that the price is 36p. For a multi pack of 6 crispy rolls the price is £1.50 - £3.00 in larger supermarkets. However I have seen it for £1 in Pound land recently which means mums can stock up for play snacks for schools. NUTRIONAL VALUES 1 bar of Milk way Crispy Rolls 64 Calories 6.8g sugars 3.2g fat 2.2g Saturates 0.03g salt May contain trace of hazelnuts - please be vary for allergies

                A yummy snack!

                When I saw these chocolate bars a few weeks ago I though I just had to have them. As a child I used to love these but rarely see them around now a days. The main thing that tempted me back to them was the low calorie content. I am not on a diet and I am perfectly happy with my figure, however this doesn't mean I want to stuff my face full of calories! These seemed the perfect alternative for my sweet tooth. ***Packaging*** The packaging for these is pretty basic. The left hand side of the packet is identical to the packaging used for Milky Way bar packets - lots of different shades of blues circles and stars (just in case you didn't know!). The right hand side of the packet has an illustration of what the Crispy Rolls look like, with a pale yellow background. As with most food items, the back holds all the nutritional information and ingredients list. It does highlight that it contains traces of Hazelnut, so it may not be suitable for but sufferers. ***The Product/Taste*** The Crispy Rolls come in the form of two separate 'fingers'. The fingers are long and think and consist of a whipped filling (the same used for Milky Way bars), around this is a layer of crispy wafer biscuit, which is then covered in a lovely milk chocolate. When you bite into the 'finger' you instantly get a delicious combination of the crunch from the wafer and smooth filling. They are sweet tasting, but not too overpowering or sickly. As someone who has a sweet tooth, I find that they really do hit the spot for the cravings of chocolate, but without the high calorie content! I find them to be a light and delicious snack - the perfect size to have a munch on to keep you going before lunchtime. I personally feel that I they were any bigger, it would become a bit too sweet and sickly. Each packet of Crispy Rolls contains 64 calories - less than some 'healthy' cereal snack bars. ***Price and Availability*** When I was younger they used to be 20p, but not anymore!! They are now at my local newsagents for 36p, they are also selling them in boxes of six for £1.00 I have found that they are more difficult to find now a days, but if you have a good search you should be able to find them in a local supermarket or newsagents. Thank you for reading, this review will also appear on ciao under the same username.

                  taste great but could be bigger

                  These milky way crispy rolls are a fantastic product, not only are they pretty unique but they look good, there fun to eat, there quite light in terms of calories and best of all, and probably the most important thing of all too is that they also taste fantastic. These rolls are very thin, long straw like shaped rolls of milky way inside a crispy shell which is coated in milk chocolate. The milky way inside is the best thing about this product. I already love the unique milky way centre in the milky way bars and it's a similar thing that is inside these rolls too so that great. The milky way centre is then wrapped up in a circular tube of wafer, this is quite thick and really hard and crunchy making these really fun to bite into as you can hear them crunch. The wafer tastes fantastic and goes well with the milk way as well. The whole thing is then dipped in milk chocolate to give a nice chocolate coating on the product. These look really good however they are quite small and you do only get two small fingers in each packet and they are a similar price to other more substantial chocolate products on the market so perhaps there could be more in each pack, however they do taste great, they are only 64 calories per roll and I always enjoy these whenever I get them so there not much complaint about these ones.

                    Worth Trying

                    Introduction My boyfriend bought a pack of 6 of these a few days ago and there are 2 packs left. I absolutely love them- much better than milky ways- a lot lighter! He got these from the Co-Op and I am so glad he bought them for me to try!! Packaging These can be bought separately or in a pack of six! The packaging hasn't really changed from the above DooYoo image, it still follows the same blue theme of the original Milky Way. There are 2 crispy rolls in one 25g pack which makes it even better than having one because the taste lasts longer!! Taste These are creamy milk chocolate covered wafter biscuits with a lightly whipped centre. When you bite a bit off you can immediatly taste the gorgeous centre which enhances the sweetness of this product. But, saying that, it is not too sweet to put you off. The chocolate instantly melts in your mouth- not too sickly either. Smell The smell of these is obviously yummy and chocolaty! It just makes you want to eat it as slow was possible to prolong the taste!! Price When sold separately, these are around 36p, they used to be around 20p, but the price went up! The pack of six is around £1.50, competitively priced amongst the other popular chocolates! Not too cheap due to their high quality and brand name. You can buy these from supermarkets. Opinion At only 64 kcal per crispy roll, I love these! They are not too expensice and I love to have some of these once in a while. They taste great and smell great too. The only disadvantage of these is that they have 3.2g of fat per bar which is not too good considering all of the healthy types of chocolate in today's market. 4/5.

                      Good food!

                      If you want a light, delicious, chocolately snack, then I recommend putting this chocolate 'bar' to the top of your list. Designed in a blue and white wrapper, with the legenday 'Milky Way' logo, you can find this confectionary in newsagents and supermarkets, although they definitely aren't are widely distributed as a few years ago. I generally find these are easily found in small, independent newsagents rather than your big Tescos and Asda superstores (I have no idea why, anyone care to enlighten me?). About five years ago they used to cost a mere 20p! Unfortunately, as things do, the prices went up, and now you can pick them up for about 36p. This is still a lot cheaper than most chocolate bars however. So what do they consist of? In each wrapper you'll find two rolls of chocolate. Inside these rolls is a layer of wafer, then deeper inside that is a light and delicious whipped filling. It tastes quite milky and chocolatey, but is not a chocolate bar that leaves a sickly feeling as Mars bars and Dairy Milk bars can sometimes do. It isn't a big bar, so is small enough to enjoy as a snack and won't ruin your appetite for a bigger meal! Definitely a nice addition to your lunch box. Kids love this product because of it's deliciously creamy taste, very similar to the taste of Kinder Egg chocolate, despite coming from different brands. There are trace of hazlenut in these bars, so definitely be careful if you, or whoever the consumer may be, has an allergy. There is 3.2g of fat in this snack, compared to 6.4g in a small bar of Cadbury's Dairy Milk, so it's definitely a bit of a healthier option is you're desperate for a bit of chocolate but have sworn yourself to dieting! I have enjoyed eating this snack since I was about 13 - quite a long time ago. What I've found with most chocolate bars is that the taste has changed over time, simply because everyone is trying to make their products less fattening! Fortunately for our taste buds, this bar has not changed. It has stayed the same. It tastes delicious and melts in your mouth, and it's not as fattening as most other chocolate. The two fingers/rolls make it even more convenient as it means you can have one now and save the other until later, or you can even share it between two people :D (...although I don't recommend this... it's far too delicious to share!).

                        A different and tasty snack!

                        Having 22 month old twin boys who enjoy their foods I'm always looking for new and different snacks for them. Unfortunately for them they have inherited my sweet tooth and they do enjoy chocolate, it always seems to be a Milkybar in their hands though so when I spotted a box of Milkyway Crispy Rolls in Iceland the other day for £1 I decided to get them. Milkyways have been a popular chocolate with my boys as the chocolate is tasty yet not too thick and creamy, it has just the right consistency and the fluffy marshmallow inside is soft and easy to eat for young children. I'd already tried Milkyway Crispy Rolls before and I knew these would be a hit. Milkyway crispy rolls come in a packet very similar to the milkyway bars being a dark blue with pale blue stars decorating it, it clearly says Milkyway on the packet too but one half of the packet is a pale yellow telling us this is 'Crispy Rolls' above a picture of two rolls themselves. We are also told on this small packet that these contain 'No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. You can either buy them in packets on their own for roughly 30p or in multiboxes of 6, which I've only seen in Iceland for £1. Each packet contains two of these crispy rolls which are basically wafer biscuit fingers with a lightly whipped filling coated in milk chocolate. These bars are such simple bars yet so pleasing, they are finger length and 'tube' shaped, the filling inside is white in colour, very similar to what you find in a milkyway bar but smoother and creamier, slightly sweet and tastes lovely mixed in with the light, crispy wafer surrounding it. The milk chocolate is just a thin layer but it's all thats needed as it is still tasty, smooth and chocolatey sweet. These may be small and simple but they are satisfying and different to eat. They are soft to bite into making them a lovely snack for young children too. The back of the box tells me the nutritional info for just one piece which I'm assuming is one crispy roll. So one piece contains; 65 calories 6.5g sugars 3.4g fat 2.4g saturated fat 0.03g salt
