Munchies are among those chocolates I don't eat often, but sometimes I can not resist.
They have a chocolate smell, although I am aware that nestle chocolate is not as sweet as some superior brands and Cadbury's and you may tell this from the odor alone. You may also discover a small caramel smell if you try hard enough. You get then the gooey caramel, chocolate first, and eventually, the somewhat crunchy biscuit inside.
Considering I am anticipating really sweet caramel this doesn't quite live up to this. Combined with the not so sweet chocolate, while these are not nasty, I do find them somewhat disappointing when I do eat them. It does not stop me eating the however, if I am honest.
For many reasons, much as though I adore the idea of those, and I keep buying the, they aren't as pleasant as I keep thinking they are. They are less sweet towards the end of the packet, and as I believe they're going to be, I start to find them somewhat sickening.
Additionally, I discovered the very fact the biscuit isn't that crunchy somewhat offputting as well, as I kept expecting it to be crunchy and to be a comparison to the soft caramel, but it is not that crunchy, and would be nicer if it was something similar to a shortcake filling in these, something that would hold the crunching better.
I doubt that I will purchase another packet of those in the near future, but as I seem to forget that I'm not that keen on these after a little while, I am positive that about six months down the line, I will see them and fantasy a package, and the circle will start again!
Price and Availability
I can't recall how much I paid for my tote, but I understand it wasn't more than GBP1. I do think the smaller foil packets are better in a few means, as I oozed caramel, which doesn't appear to occur with the foil wrapped packets, and discovered that a few in my tote has got somewhat damaged. The smaller foil wrapped packages costs around 70p - 80p, and includes 11 individual chocolates.
Each foil wrapped packet includes 255 calories and 12.5g of fat.
These aren't the healthiest of bites, but I think they're fine as an occasional treat, as you are able to view.
Each munchie flavours and contains milk, but is free from artificial colours.
Munchies are one of those chocolates that I don't eat often, but sometimes I can't resist.
Each munchie is about 2cm square with 4 squares embossed on the top of each trapezium. They have a chocolate smell, although I know that nestle chocolate isn't as sweet as Cadbury's and some premium brands and you can tell this from the smell alone. You can also detect a slight caramel scent if you try hard enough. Biting in, you get chocolate first, then the gooey caramel, and finally, the slightly crunchy biscuit interior.
Normally I love caramel and chocolate with a crunchy biscuit, there is something that makes these not as sweet as they could be and I find this slightly off-putting.

I have only recently discovered the Nestle Munchies, after buying a Nestle multipack of chocolate bars. They are chocolates that come in a pack of 12, wrapped in gold paper and the red paper with the label.
The outside wrapper has the word Munchies in write writing, as well as the Nestle label, and nutritional and ingredients information on the back. Both papers are glued tight, meaning to open the packet you have to rip down the side.
The chocolates are 1.5x1.5x1cm in size, with a milk chocolate outside, soft caramel inside and a small piece of biscuit inside the caramel. The chocolate is of a good thickness and tastes good, the caramel is very sweet, so those with a sweet tooth like myself will love these, but they may be too sweet for some people. They contain a minimum of 14% milk solids. The biscuit is nice and crunchy, but could do with being a bit bigger, as they only contain 6% biscuit.
The nutritional content of the Munchies is stated as 133 calories per half tube, although I would never have the self control to only eat half a pack! While writing this I have polished off a pack! They also contain 5.4g protein, 64.6g carbohydrates and 22.5g fat per 100g. One tube weighs 52g.
I award 4/5 as they are nice and sweet, but a bit sickly. The cost is around 60p and they are available from supermarkets and most places that sell chocolate.

So Im walking down the sweetie aisle in tesco, I do have a very big sweet tooth, and I was looking for something to much that wasnt just chocolate, then I came accross munchies. The packaging is a bright red colour with white writing saying muchiies in big bold letters. They also have a foil layer underneathe to keep them fresh. For me they stood out because of the colour. The next thing I saw on the packaging is that they have 'No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives', thats a positive for me. So I picked them up to have a further look, the description says ' A milk chocolate with a soft caramel centre and a crisp biscuit bite'. The ingredients and the nutritional information is in black writing which is clear and easy to read. Now the sugar and saturated fat content are quiet high, but for any chocolate based product it will be so this didnt put me off. It also has a nestle contact number, which is freephone, if you have any comments.
The packing is easy to open, you just unfold the end and take the top one out, then tear down the side to get to the next ones. The chocolates are little 1 cm by 1 cm squares. They have a hard outer shellling of chocolate and the inside is a smooth soft caramel, and then you get to a crunch of the biscuit. I found that the biscuit part is very small. I would say 2/3s are caramel and only 1/3 biscuit. They have a very rich chocolatey smell, and they have a sweet taste but actually not overpoweringly so. They are very moreish though,hence then name I guess, and before you know it you are at the end!! I also found that sometimes the caramel had come out of the chocolate an had stuck the next one to it. Making it rather stickly to hold.
They are a very nice treat, and I will be buying them again, but I find that nestle chocolate hasnt got good quality to it. I find it tastes quiet cheap, which is a bit of a let down, also I think the biscuit should be bigger as there is more caramel and chocolate and it overpowers it a bit too much. The packaging is great, very vibrant and full of information, and I like the fact the choclates arent too sickly sweet just enough so you can eat the whole pack!!!
4/5 from me and def worth a buy if you havent had them before.
Thanks for reading and rating.
Munchies are milk chocolates with a soft caramel and crisp biscuit centre. They are made by Nestle who are a well known brand for making chocolate bars such as Kit Kat. Munchies have been around for as long as I remember. I remember going down to my local shop as a child and seeing these on the shelf next to the mint Munchies that they also do. Munchies were first launched in 1957 and are available to buy in a hanging bag as well as the tube which is what I am reviewing. I only have Munchies very occasionally when I feel like something a bit different and can take my time to eat them as the tube contains small chocolates rather than just one big bar. I find them when I purchase things such as Rolo's, Munchies and other small chocolates such as Maltesers I take longer to eat them rather then scoffing a large bar of chocolate such as a Mars, Boost or Wispa bar. I haven't had munchies for a long time so I was looking forwards to eating these. I purchase the Munchies in my local Co-Op for approximately 60p-69p.

~ The Munchies ~
The munchies come wrapped in paper foil which is gold in colour. There is a red paper wrapped around the gold foil wrapper, which leaves just the ends of the gold foil to be seen. On the red wrapper it has 'Munchies' in white bold writing and it also states that the product is made by Nestle. On the other side of the munchies it says 'Nibble Me' and on the back of the packet is a list of ingredients, nutritional information and contact details should you want to ask any questions or have any complaints about the product itself. Although the packaging is very simple the product stands out due to the white bold writing on the front of the packaging. The red wrapper tears open easily to reveal the matt gold foil paper in which the chocolates are neatly wrapped in. The gold wrapper ripped as I was taking the red wrapper off as they are well glued to each other. There were a total of 12 chocolates which were stacked on their side. They were square in shape with slightly slanted sides. The chocolates were approximately 1 cm thick and had a square pattern engraved onto the top of the chocolate. The chocolate looked smooth on the outside and there was no sign of caramel or the biscuit. The chocolates had a chocolatey smell to them; how-ever this wasn't too strong and didn't smell too sickly. The chocolates looked very tempting.
I put one of the chocolate into my mouth and my teeth sank through the chocolate layer and into the soft, slightly chewy caramel. As I chewed some more my teeth then crunched into the biscuit and mixed with the caramel. This tasted delicious and had a lovely smooth texture to it. The caramel made it slightly chewy which was nice. I took another chocolate and bit into it and then looked inside the other half. I cold see the golden caramel inside the chocolate but no biscuit. I popped the rest of the chocolate into my mouth and bit down into the chocolate and then found the biscuit. After eating a few of these it seems as though the caramel is on one side of the chocolate and the biscuit of the other side. No matter how I ate the chocolates they tasted delicious either way and were very enjoyable as well as moreish. In fact these were so moreish that I ate the whole pack within 10 minutes. After eating the pack I did feel a little bloated and had a very sweet taste in my mouth, which I rinsed out with water to ensure I didn't have any caramel or chocolate stuck to my teeth.
~ Overall Opinion ~
Although I'm not a huge fan of Nestle chocolate and prefer Dairy Milk or Galaxy, these tasted delicious and I really enjoyed them. The caramel was lovely and creamy and slightly chewy which gave the whole chocolate a lovely texture. There is some biscuit inside the chocolate; how-ever I think there's more caramel than biscuit. These are a lot more expensive now than what I remember; how-ever I have noticed that all the prices of chocolate bars are rather pricey now. The chocolates made a lovely change from just a simple bar of chocolate and I would buy them again. I wouldn't try the Mint Munchies as I don't like anything minty, how-ever I know my sister likes the Mint one's, so I'm guessing they taste as good as these ones. I give these 4 out of 5 stars and will no doubt be buying them again at some point.

When I was younger my Dad would often buy himself a few chocolate bars or sweet packets from the shop on his way from home. I didn't tend to eat many sweets/chocolates back then except on the rare occasion so it was always a nice treat when he would offer some of what he'd bought out to us. Even to this day when he does it as I'm far too selfish to be sharing my chocolate with anybody! Anyway back to where I was going with that, this is the reason I got to try out certain chocolate bars that were perhaps a little unappealing to my childhood self because of how plain the packaging was. In this way I found out I loved Fry's chocolate bars, as well as Munchies.
Munchies are square shaped pieces of chocolate with a caramel inside and crunchy biscuit middle. The contrasts between the different flavours and consistencies makes the chocolate a lot different to other ones out there. Additionally, the fact that there are pieces and not simply a whole 'bar' as is usually the case with chocolate products, means you can eat your fill and stop once/if it becomes a little too sickly or you feel full.
A single pack of munchies includes 12 pieces of chocolate. This tends to be enough to make me feel full and so is a reasonable amount.
The chocolate is covered in a golden foil which helps to keep it crisp, especially if you plan on eating some and saving it for later. It is covered in a red wrapper with simply "Munchies" written on it slightly skewed to the right, and Nestle, the brand, to the left. Although plain, it says everything you need to know, and it lets the taste do the talking. But like I said, to children it may be a little boring and simplistic, as it literally is just red with white writing.
The ingredients are as follows:
milk chocolate (sugar, dried whole milk, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, whey powder, vegetable fat, lactose, emulsifiers (soya lecithin, E476), butterfat, flavouring), glucose-fructose syrup, sweetened condensed skimmer milk, wheat flour, vegetable fat, hydrogenated vegetable oil, sugar, malt extract, salt, raising agents (sodium bicarbonate, ammonium bicarbonate), flavouring.
The price for a single bar varies, especially compared to where you live and how expensive your local shops are. Where I live, perhaps because of London prices (?) I tend to buy a single bar for £0.79 in my local petrol station store (there is an attached Spar store onto it). However, I have also seen them sold in local cornershops for between 60-70p so they are overtly expensive everywhere.
The price of a pack of Munchies bars can be bought in most local supermarkets (or of course on the internet). My local supermarket, which is a Morrisons, sells 5 Munchies bars in a pack for £1.20 which is a great deal on the extortionate shop prices around here, so I tend to buy them in bulk like this.
I would recommend Munchies, although they may not be to everyone's taste. I think the mixture of different flavours and textures make them pretty unique to more standard chocolate bars, and there is enough bite for my liking. However, the biscuit is very crumbly, so I could understand how someone who perhaps likes a little more distinction between the crunch and softness in their food, could not enjoy the bar.
I first started eating Munchies as a rather small child a very long time ago! At that time, I would either buy Munchies or something called Mintola I think. Its not that often that I buy Munchies but I noticed a Christmas tube of Munchies at Sainsbury's for only 50p on special offer (half price I think); I bought a couple of tubes and my daughter bought a couple too.
Munchies usually come in a long square shaped packet because they are usually square in shape! However, this Christmas pack I got was in a sort of roundish shape with a flat bottom, but they are the same as the square Munchies re ingredients. Munchies have an outer Milk Chocolate coating with nice crisp crunchy biscuit and soft sort of caramel in the middle; they really are delicious, but ordinarily not cheap; like many other Chocolates these days. A normal size packet of Munchies costs around 75pence for just over 50g approx; therefore this Christmas pack I got was certainly a bargain! I actually prefer these smaller roundish shaped Munchies too.
Milk Chocolate, (Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Skimmed Milk Powder, Cocoa Mass, Lactose & Proteins from Whey, Whey Powder, Butter Fat, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin), Natural Vanilla flavouring, Caramel, Glucose fructose syrup, Sweetened condensed skimmed milk, vegetable fat, Sugar, Salt, Biscuit (Wheat flour, Sugar, Vegetable fat, Cocoa Butter, Dried whole milk, Cocoa Mass, Whey powder, Barley malt extract, Lactose, Raising agents (sodium bicarbonate, ammonium bicarbonate), Salt, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin)
Per 12 sweets there are 174 kcals
Munchies have no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives
Munchies are a really delicious chocolate sweet; although usually expensive, due to their taste, I am awarding them 5 Dooyoo stars.
After destroying a Waitrose Bacon and egg mayonaise sandwich I felt like something along the lines of Millionaire shortbread (Chocolate, caramel, shortbread base) Normally when one fancies something like this I would go for a Kit Kat Chunky caramel- but I felt this would be to heavy for what I wanted! So I decided to try these- one problem though!
Munchies as a brand; Munchies are produced by Nestle which were introduced by Rowntrees in 1957. The other "Munchie" flavor was Mintola and was rebranded in 1995 to Mint Munchies". However this was again rebranded as After Eight bitesize in 2006.
Taste; I found munching on these chocolates/biscuits rather pleasant. They are coated with a coating of tasty creamy chocolate and a smooth caramel. In the centre lies the biscuit- which was crunchy and very Moorish!
Smell; I loved the smell of these Munchies! They smelt of home baked Millionaire shortbread! The only difference was that these chocolates were bite-sized! they did smell rather sweet and for some they may not appeal.
Packaging; The sweets come in a packet or a tube and are coated in foil to keep them fresh. (Pointless for me as I stuff the lot in one go) The paper on the outside is a red colour and has the Nestle brand name and the name of the sweets (Munchies.) It is therefore rather ordinary but the large lettering helps it to combat this.
Product Quality; I found the quality OK- Dont get me wrong they tasted great. The chocolate was smooth as was the caramel. The biscuits were also nice and crisp two! There were two things that I disliked here! They sweets were not big enough! It also contained that nasty Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil! ARGHHHHHH!
Value For Money; I bought these at CostCutter (which I totally disagree with, as for the name) They cost £0.79 which I thought was quite expensive! Especially as I could of had a Kit Kat Chunky Duo for that! I still think they are worth it once in a while though! You get 52 grams in 1 tube.
Verdict; Although I felt they were quite expensive they were extremely tasty, but I may try to see if Tesco sell them for a little less money next time!
Ingredients; milk chocolate (sugar, dried whole milk, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, whey powder, vegetable fat, lactose, emulsifiers (soya lecithin, E476), butterfat, flavouring), glucose-fructose syrup, sweetened condensed skimmer milk, wheat flour, vegetable fat, hydrogenated vegetable oil, sugar, malt extract, salt, raising agents (sodium bicarbonate, ammonium bicarbonate), flavoring.

I've just opened a pack of these & have to say, one of my favourite chocolate treats from my younger days, has been totally ruined. They were foul!!!! For some reason Nestles seem under the impression they can dictate what our taste buds should like. The chocolate is not in any way, the same as it used to be, the caramel tastes burnt and the biscuit is miniscule. I'll not be buying anymore Nestles products. They have messed about with every brand they have managed to buy.
I have to admit to having a failing when it comes to chocolate. Ever since my childhood days I have liked nothing more than gazing at confectionary shelves, trying to decide what I would most like to eat. This week my gaze fell upon an old favourite of mine but one in which I had had for a long time Munchies.
Certainly not the cheapest chocolate sensation on the market, my 52g packet cost me 75p at my Newsagents, but I have seen them on sale for anything between 65p and 90p.
This product is made by Nestle and was first introduced in its tube version to the British market in 1957. Since those days and in keeping with most of its competitors various varieties and sizes have been introduced. For example you can get not only the tube but a hanging bag and most supermarkets now sell a larger triple pack. In addition to this family there are Mint Munchies as well.
For me the packaging for Munchies has always been the same and instantly recognizable. With the simple but distinct Munchies name clearly and largely written on the side of the product with a red background that makes it eye catching. While on the bottom you have more product information in small print, with a long list of ingredients and nutritional information.
Inside my tube I found 12 small chocolates. The individual chocolates are square in appearance and they comprise an outer milk chocolate, which surrounds a biscuit centre and a creamy caramel. They are easy to chew and because of the biscuit base are crunchy as well as chewy. The taste is very pleasant as the biscuit base mixes with the caramel, leaving a mouth watering taste as they fuse together with the sweet milk chocolate. Although I did find the biscuit base taste while crunchy to be a little tasteless, it was lucky the caramel was distinctive.
My thoughts on the product:
Initially I am discouraged from purchasing this product certainly on a regular basis but its price. When I consider I can get a good chocolate bar for 50p paying extra for me has to be worth it and for a change or a treat I am happy to buy this. I do consider its main selling point is for me there is nothing quite like this in the market place. It is unique and I like the fact that you have 12 individual squares of pleasure to enjoy.
Because of the products size you can either bite straight into it or put it straight into your mouth whole and suck the chocolate off. I found the milk chocolate to be very creamy sweet and lovely tasting. While the caramel was a little too sweet for me but because it was a liquid centre it combined well with the biscuit. It reminded me in look of toffee and looked very effective when I bit into the chocolate.
What has always impressed me with these Munchies is I feel I am having a variety of taste sensation with the chocolate, caramel and biscuit mix. Although I must admit even for a chocolate freak like me, a tube is too much so I have found these are ideal for sharing as after half a dozen of them I started to feeling I had had enough and I started to feel a little sick with the strong flavours.
On the negative side I have found these Munchies can be both messy and stick together. On some occasions the Caramel will come out of the square leaving a sticky mess, while on others the milk chocolate outer of the square has fused with the next square, this happens mainly in warmer weather but is frustrating. The answer I suppose is to put them in the fridge and eat them straight from there.
As with all chocolate they are not particular good for you. (When will they invent chocolate that is?) Although it will certainly give you a pleasant sugar rush and revive you in between meals.
Ingredients: milk chocolate (sugar, dried whole milk, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, whey powder, vegetable fat, lactose, emulsifiers (soya lecithin, E476), butterfat, flavouring), glucose-fructose syrup, sweetened condensed skimmer milk, wheat flour, vegetable fat, hydrogenated vegetable oil, sugar, malt extract, salt, raising agents (sodium bicarbonate, ammonium bicarbonate), flavouring.
Per tube (52g)
It was nice to go down memory lane with Munchies. I would on balance just recommend them, they are unique and well worth buying occasionally as a treat or just an experiment to see what they taste like. The down side to them is the price, too many can make you feel sick plus as with all chocolate they are rich in sugar and calories.
Thanks for reading my review

I am a total chocoholic and have been pigging out while rating all your brilliant reviews.
Desperate for a chocolate fix yesterday evening, I decided to pop into my local Sainsbury's and get something lovely and sweet to fix my craving. I came across this bag of munchies down the sweet and chocolate aisle. I wouldn't normally pick these up but priced at only £1 I thought they were good value for money, seeing as they were on offer and usually retail at around the £1.49 mark.
They come in a re-sealable packet which is very easy to open. All you need to do is find the small slit on the left hand side and pull the top. It easily rips open the packet to gain instant access, and you can even fit your whole hand inside the packet. You can also purchase them in smaller packets which are great for when you're out and about or for your child's lunch box.
You get a good amount of munchies within the packet. I'd say there were around 40 enclosed.
I find these very sweet and extremely sickly for a handful of maybe 4 or 5 is more than enough to feed my chocolate needs.
They really are great when you've got the munchies so the name suits them very well.
The centre of one of these small munchies is a lovely crunchy biscuit then coated in an extremely sickly tasting and slightly runny caramel then coated in a lovely milk nestle chocolate. They really go down a treat and taste even better washed down with a cuppa tea.
There is very minimal caramel enclosed within the Munchies, so there's no need to worry about getting in a huge mess.
Overall I think these are a nice sweet treat but slightly too sickly for me. It was defiantly worth spending the £1 to try them but I wouldn't purchase the larger bags in future, Just the small packets from now on.
I picked up a packet of Munchie recently in my local garage after not having had them for years. They haven't changed a bit since the last time I ate them and I have to say, tasted every bit as good as they always did.
Munchies are a chocolate sweet made by Nestle available in two flavours.
- Original - Which come in a red packet, consisting of individual chocolate sweets made up of a layer of biscuit and caramel covered in milk chocolate, and;
- Mint - Which come in a dark green packet, consisting of a peppermint fondant, covered in dark chocolate.
It is interesting to note that the Mint munchies contain no biscuit and despite being the same shape and coming in similar packaging, taste nothing like the original ones.
It was the original ones which I bought and as mentioned above, they taste amazing, the chocolate coating is good quality and very creamy without being too sweet, once you break through this surface, there is a generous portion of biscuit which gives a beautiful contrasting texture with the smoothness of the chocolate, and just the right amount of caramel so as not to become to sweet.
Each pack contains arrpox. 12 sweets (52 grams) and are priced at 85p which I think is a tad expensive, when you consider that it contains the same amount of product as an average bar of chocolate, nevertheless, definitely worth it as these sweets are amazing.
As with all chocolate and confectionary items, there is a downside, the nutrition!
Each packet contains:
12.5g of Fat
32.8g of Carbohydrate
2.1g of Protein
Not the worst in the world, but for the taste, I'd still pick them up again!
Nestle munchies are a sweet chocolate snack which don't really fill you up. They consist of biscuit, caramel and covered in milk chocolate. They are quite small and so if you eat one at a time they don't fill your mouth and if you put a couple in your mouth at a time then the pack gets empty VERY quickly. They come in a square packet or you can get a grab bag. I generally go for the grab bag as the packets just aren't big enough. The sweet it self is very sweet in fact a bit too much for me as the caramel tastes very sugary and there is not enough chocolate to satisfy me.
The packets are square with a gold metallic paper with a red paper case on the outside. Easy to get into and the wrapping does not rip so is protective of the chocolate inside.
The grab bags are a bit bigger and have smaller sweets in to the normal packets but in essence the same product. The bags weigh 150g and are made out of plastic. The top rips open so is easy to undo, however once open there is no way to refasten but then again I can't imagine many people would.
I won't upset you too much with this as if you were really bothered about calories etc you wouldn't be eating choccie to start with, however they are approx 24% fat, and just under 500 calories per 100g so they are not the best hit of chocolate without worrying about your waistline.
50p for packet
£1.75 for bag
In one tube of Munchies you receive about 12 for the price of 60p. I'd never tried them before and decided to give them a go. I must say that I regret it somewhat. Munchies are made of biscuit and caramel covered in chocolate and whilst they might sound appealing, I regret to say that the reality is different. I found that they tasted nice in your mouth at first, but after a few chews they released a very strange taste that I'm afraid to say was not pleasant at all. This strange taste persisted even after I'd swallowed the sweet.
The rest of my family seemed to enjoy them, so maybe it is just my tastebuds that are different, but I did not like them at all. They weren't horrible and I managed to finish the entire tube, but I certainly wouldn't recommend them or buy them again. Nestle can do much better than these.
This isn't even mentioning the fact that the chocolate was so thin it crumbled everywhere as you picked it up!
If you get the munchies you should reach for.... Nestle munchies!!
I'm a bit of a chocaholic and I want something that will last quite a while - which is why i like Munchies - as you get 12 in a tube for about 52-60p (depending wher eyou buy them), and they last you a good few minutes (the same sort of length of time as rolos!).
The chocolate itself is a small square chocolate with a pattern on the top that is a biscuit with a caramel top like a miniature square twix - but12 of them in a packet - and they taste deliciious. They also do an after eight mint variety which macdonalds recently turned into a mcflurry which I also love.
The chocolate itself that covers the caramel and biscuit is usual nestle chocolate - gorgeous and not too cocoa-y or milking.
All in all, munchies are a great little chocolatey snack that last quite a long time, and taste great! I will have to go and buy some now!
