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.
Summary: Worth a try
