      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great British sweet that has stood the test of time!

      Nestle Rowntree's Rolo

      ----

      Nestle Rowntree's Rolos are a packet of ten sweets that come wrapped up in a tube. They are a well-known sweet and the distinctive brown wrappers with 'Rolo' emblazoned on them in red and gold make them easy to recognise.Rolos are a small bucket shaped piece of caramel toffee, or perhaps upside down bucket would describe them better, and they are covered in scrumptious milk chocolate. The chocolate feels surprisingly thick when you bite into it as it doesn't look that thick on first viewing. The toffee is delightful and not too sweet as a lot of caramel filmed chocolates sometimes are. There is an 'O' engraved into the top of each one and I always wondered why this wasn't an 'R'. Maybe the 'R' would be more complicated to pull off or maybe it isn't an 'O' and just a circle for show.


      Everyone remembers the advertisements for Rowntree's Rolos. The emphasis was always based on who you would save your last Rolo for. It was quite a clever ploy if you really think about it and it is still remembered by most people today, albeit thirty years since it first hit our television screens. It is best remembered for the famous phrase "Do you love anyone enough to give them your last Rolo?''.The most famous ones were the artist sketching the little girl and boy and the boy bashfully saving his last one for the girl and the opposite in a follow-up advert. Later adverts would depict different people saving their last Rolo for their loved one or best friend or the selfish keeping it all to themselves. The Rolo became a symbol as well as a favourite sweet and was popular among romantics and used as a status symbol amongst friends. The people who made the advert were not stupid and knew exactly what they were doing and the sales prove it. A different stance was taken over the last decade as the old adverts are now seen as too soft and Rolo has been revamped as more of a cool sweet than a way to get to someone's heart.


      Even though the slogan has been dropped, a lot of people still see it as a romantic gesture to leave the last one to their partner and this proves just what a great idea the ad campaign was back in the day. There is even a website called Mylastrolo.com where you can pick up any number of last Rolo related gifts for Valentine's Day or just of you feel in the mood. You can get little last Rolos to pop on bracelets or necklaces, specially designed packs of Rolos where the last one is wrapped specially in silver, gold or diamond foil and a multitude of other gifts. You can even go as far as purchasing a silver, gold or diamond Rolo that comes in its own pretty little box with a bow. You may be surprised to learn that they are specially made of real silver, gold and diamond and start at....drum roll.... sixty nine pounds. I don't have a drum roll or anything else for that matter that will get you ready for the next gasp, when I tell you that a small diamond Rolo necklace on the site goes for seven thousand, eight hundred pounds! There is also a small platinum diamond Rolo for four thousand, eight hundred pounds.


      The website seems to be a traditionalist as well it seems, as they are bringing back all the old TV campaigns so you can watch them over and over again.


      I really like Rolos, especially of the fridge because you get that lovely crackle from the hardened chocolate and then the extra chewiness from the hardened toffee inside; yummy. They are nice to eat normally but I prefer them from the fridge as it gives them added chewiness.


      I always used to like opening the pack when I was younger and the gold foil always gave them that 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' feel. I must admit that when I was younger I couldn't care less if I loved anyone enough to give them my last one and would've balked at the fact; although saying that I was always a generous kid and shared nicely with friends. Today I am a soppy bugger and just recently saved the last one for my partner; well most of the pack actually.


      Earlier on in this review I mentioned the adverts, so I can't leave it without mentioning some of my favourite ones over the years. Everyone remembers the 'Elephants never forgets' advert and the most annoying kid ever and it is still funny today, but my favourite has to be the 'Skippy the Kangaroo' one. Skippy is sat in front of two buys and the one boy holds up his last Rolo to exclaim 'I have saved my last Rolo for the best friend a boy could ever have'. Skippy shuffles with pride and expectation as the boy says 'Here you go Mark' and hands it to the other boy. The next scene we see Skippy with a police officer and Skippy relays a message in his usual teeth sucking manner. The police officer says 'what's that Skip? Someone has thrown the two boys in the billabong? Who could've done that?' Skippy even murmurs 'ahem'. Priceless.


      Rolos were first manufactured in nineteen thirty-seven by Mackintosh who later became Rowntree Mackintosh and are now owned by the Nestle Group. They have been around for a long time now and they come in many varieties and different forms. You can get Rolo cookies, yogurts, puddings, cakes, muffins, cake bars, biscuits, birthday cakes, Milkshakes, ice cream, ice cream bars and different size Rolos such as mini versions and a larger version. They are all made with the same ingredients, caramel and chocolate. MacDonalds also did a Rolo flavoured McFlurry. There are also a variety of Easter eggs and products made for Easter and a selection of special Christmas variants.


      Rolo's are one of my favourite sweets and always have been and probably always will be.


      Five out of five stars for me.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A lovely packet of chocolates, perfect for any toffee/caramel lover.

        Rolo's are a bit of a classic in my opinion, but until recently I hadn't had any in years! I spied a multi-pack of these in Tesco's and originally thought they might be nice for my boyfriend's packed lunches, but ended up sneakily eating some of them myself! As with most chocolates, I find these pretty addictive, so they don't last very long in my house unfortunately! If you haven't had them before, they are basically just little toffees encased in milk chocolate, and I suppose you get around 10 sweets in a packet.

        Packaging.

        Rolo's come in a chocolaty brown coloured packet, with the sweets themselves nestled in gold coloured foil, so they are kept nice and fresh. They have some tempting looking pictures of the chocolates on the front, making them hard to resist! All in all, I would say they look very attractive and instantly recognisable.

        The actual chocolate.

        Rolo's combine two of my favourite things - chocolate and toffee! In actuality, I tend to prefer the taste of Cadbury's chocolate, but I think the Nestle's chocolate works really well with these. They aren't encased in a particularly thick layer of chocolate, but I don't think they need to be, because the chocolate is really just there to compliment the toffee, which it does very well! The chocolate is smooth and creamy, and melts in the mouth making these the perfect sweet treat. I love the toffee centre, it's not so hard that it would break your teeth, but it is just chewy enough to be the perfect consistency. The flavour is very tasty, and doesn't taste like cheap caramel. I think I would genuinely prefer a packet of Rolo's to another chocolate bar, such as a Mars bar, as they seem to last a little longer being that they are individual chocolates.

        Price and availability.

        Seeing as Rolo's are so popular, they are widely available from most Supermarket's and Newsagents.
        Tesco has been running a deal for the past couple of weeks on the multi-packs of Rolo's, so you get four packets for just £1.00, which I think is excellent value. I'll definitely be purchasing more of these while they are on offer, as they seem to be very popular with my boyfriend. The normal price is £1.49.

        Nutrition.

        Obviously, these aren't the healthiest snack in the world, but I was never expecting them to be. Five Rolo's contain 127 calories, and 5.4 grams of fat, which isn't the best, but I think this is fine as a treat.

        If you are a fan of Rolo's chocolate, you can also get them in the form of gorgeous yoghurt's, and biscuits, and I would recommend them too!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great tasting chocolate shells

        I use to always eat rolos when I was younger and still buy the odd pack now and again. If your not familar with rolo's they are basicly milk chocolate shaped shells with soft chewy carmel inside.

        Rolo's come in a tube shape packaging of gold foil and dark brown paper. The gold foil is wrapped around the rolos and then the dark brown paper is wrapped around the foil. The paper also has the Rolo's written on the front of it in big written.

        The smooth nestle milk chocolate taste great and combines well with the creamy chewy caramel. As you bite into the chocolate shell the chocolate will start to melt and then the thick chewy caramel will slowly get softer.

        Overall I really enjoy munching through a tube of rolo's. The mixture of milk chocolate and creamy thick caramel works well and each rolo is a reasonalbe size for your mouth. There are 10 -15 rolo's in a pack and a pack of rolos usually cost around 50p. Great for munching in front of the telly or on the go.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Delicious sweets from Nestle.

          I have quite an incredible sweet tooth and regularly buy chocolate and sweets, both of which I adore. One chocolate that I had not purchased for quite some time was a packet of 'Rolos' which are made by the well known manufacturer, Nestle. When I was in a local branch of Poundland recently, I noticed that they had a multi-pack containing three individual packs of these sweets on sale for, funnily enough £1, and I immediately snapped them up.

          The Rolos are quite unique in their design I think... certainly, I have never come across another sweet or chocolate that even looks similar. Each Rolo is a circular shape, and has a flat base so they stand up easily on their own. The sides of the milk chocolate Rolos taper slightly until it reaches the top, which has a little circular design on it.

          The outside of the Rolo is essentially a 'shell' as the gorgeous milk chocolate is holding onto the most gorgeous smooth caramel centre. The combination of sweet and smooth caramel with the milky taste of the milk chocolate is a winning one, in my opinion.

          It is not difficult to tell that the Nestle Rolos are a sweets of a very high quality. The milk chocolate is smooth and quite creamy in its consistency and is deliciously sweet without being over-bearing or at all sickly.

          In addition, the delicious, smooth caramel centre of these particular sweets is anything but sickly, nor does it have the unpleasant, rather bitter after taste that similar sweets from more 'budget' brands have all to often. In actual fact, I find that the caramel centre is just right, in terms of flavour as well as consistency. I don't find that the caramel is overly runny, nor does it spill out of the chocolate shell as soon as you open the outer package.

          I find that the caramel compliments the milk chocolate perfectly, without taking anything from the taste of the chocolate itself. Furthermore, I find that the sweets are very moreish and I find it quite difficult to stop eating the sweets whilst half-way through the pack! Be warned.. this particular sweetie is difficult to resist!

          All in all, I think that the Nestle Rolos are really gorgeous sweets and I have taken quite a shine to them in recent times. This is a tad unfortunate for my waist line, given that these particular sweets contain (per 100g) 478 Kcal and 20.3g fat. This nutritional information can be deducted by 50% to get the relevant information for one pack of Rolos, given that each tube or pack is only 52g in size.

          I can see that the Nestle Rolos contain nothing in the way of artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. There is nothing on the packet to suggest whether they are suitable for a vegetarian diet, but I can see that relevant allergy advice is listed to allow consumers to make an informed choice.

          The Nestle Rolos are widely available from all good grocery stores and newsagents, as well as supermarkets such as Tesco and Asda. The multi-pack that I purchased (which contains three individual packets of Rolos) cost me £1 from my local branch of Poundland. There is a larger multi-pack available (containing five packets of Rolos) and the cost for this is around £1.80, from supermarkets such as Asda. You can expect to pay around 70 pence for an individual pack of the sweets.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Chocolate cones with a yummy chewy, caramel centre.

            *** ROLO'S**
            Rolo's are made by Nestle whom are a well-known brand who also make our favourite choccie bars such as Kit Kat, Aero, Milkybar & more. They were first introduced in 1937 and are still a well-known, popular chocolate treat now. Rolo's are little separate chocolate treats which are a bit like a cone shape without the point on top. The milk chocolate cones have a yummy, chewy caramel centre which is soft when you bite into it. On the top of the chocolate treats there is a circular design with almost like a dot engraved onto the top of them. I remember having these sometimes as a child. My Nan used to often buy me a packet and I used to love putting them in the fridge so the chocolate went hard.

            ***PACKAGING***
            As far as I can remember Rolo packaging hasn't really changed from over the years. The chocolates are neatly stacked on their side behind each other and are then wrapped in gold foil and folded at each end. The gold foil is then wrapped in a paper wrapper which is brown in colour and has Rolo's in big red bubble writing written on the front of it. It has also a small picture of what the Rolo's look like on the front as well. On the packet you will find nutritional information and other information such as ingredients and contact details for Nestle.

            The only other sweet's I have seen in a similar packaging to these are the Dairy Milk Chocco's which are a little similar to Rolo's but don't have the caramel centre.

            ***PRICE/AVALIABILITY***
            These are available to buy in single packs from most local shops and supermarkets. Prices can vary but they start from about 56p-60p per single pack. You can also buy multi-packs of these from supermarkets which cost £1.89 for 5 packs of Rolo's which I think is quite good value.

            ***APPEARANCE/SMELL***
            As I opened the pack, I couldn't really smell too much. There were a total of 20 sweets in the packet, and I suspect this is the same with every pack seeing as they are all the same size. They do smell very sweet and I can smell the milk chocolate but there is no smell of caramel. On some Rolo's you can see some caramel which has seeped out of the bottom of the Rolo's in a tiny hole. This isn't the same on all Rolo's though. Of course they look appetising because it's chocolate and to me, most chocolate looks appetising!

            ***TASTE TEST***
            As you bite into the Rolo, your teeth will sink into the chocolate and then into the chewy caramel centre. The milk chocolate is lovely and sweet but not too sickly. The caramel is sweet and chewy and tastes lovely when the chocolate and caramel have been chewed together. As you chew the Rolo the chocolate melts even more and the caramel gets softer. The texture of this is really smooth on your tongue. The caramel doesn't taste too sickly and isn't too sweet when combined with the chocolate. Quite often chocolate & caramel together can be quite sickly. After you have finishing chewing the Rolo, you may have some caramel stuck to your teeth, so it's important to brush or chew some gum after eating a packet of these. How-ever after munching the whole packet in less than 5 mins, I didn't find too much caramel stuck to my teeth which was good. The Rolo's don't leave too much of an after taste in your mouth, it just tastes very sweet and you can still taste the caramel slightly.

            ***OTHER ROLO PRODUCTS***
            There are other Rolo products you can buy including Ice Cream, Doughnuts, Cookies, and Biscuits & Desserts. I haven't really tried any of these products so I can't comment on what they taste like.

            ***PRODUCTS SIMILAR TO ROLO'S***
            There are lots of products available to buy which contain chocolate and caramel; how-ever there are no products like this which are alike to Rolo's. Most other chocolate and caramel products have runny caramel such as Cadbury's Dairy Milk Caramel. The other things similar to Rolo's as previously mentioned is the Dairy Milk Chocco's which look very similar and are in a similar packet but they do not have caramel inside of them, they are just milk chocolate.

            ***OVERALL OPINION***
            Although I'm not a huge fan of Nestle chocolate I think the combination of chocolate and chewy caramel taste delicious and this has to be one of my favourite chocolate treats at the moment. The good thing about the packaging to this product is that you can easily take a few Rolo's form the pack and then fold the packaging over to keep the other one's covered and fresh. I'm not sure if I would try any of the products in the Rolo range as the ice cream, cookies & doughnuts don't really interest me. If you like sweet products ever now and again and are a bit of a chocaholic like me then I would recommend you to definitely give these a try, if you haven't already!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Legendary confectionery

              I used to eat Nestle Rolos more when I was younger but I still enjoy them now and they are definitely suitable for all ages. A Rolo is a small chocolate cup or half barrel kind of shape filled with soft toffee. The Nestle milk chocolate tastes great and really combines well with the toffee in the centre. They are fairly chewy and once the chocolate has melted away in your mouth you are left with the sweet toffee which is exquisite. They are round in their shape but roughly probably measure one and half centimetres in height and width.

              You are presented with your Rolos in a tube shape obviously because they are round, they are wrapped once with gold foil and then have a paper wrap on the outside which is brown with the name of the product written in bold red text, they have looked this way more or less since I started to eat them probably over twenty years ago. I really love the taste of these and have no trouble eating a whole packet very swiftly; nutritionally they don't seem any worse than other sweets or confectionery products containing about 246 calories and 10.6g of fat.

              For a single packet you could probably expect to pay about 50 pence but like with many things if you buy them in a multipack you can make good savings, for example on the Tesco website currently you can purchase a packet of five tubes for £1.74. A good aspect with these is that you don't have to eat them all in one go, you can just use the foil paper to cover them back up and eat them at a later time although this is not really something I would consider, they do not last that long when I get a tube. Overall these are a traditional, nostalgic chocolate brand that I love to eat especially with a nice mug of tea as they melt wonderfully.

                nice treat

                I hadn't eaten a Rolo since I was very little until the other day. My friend had a packet and she offered me one so I couldn't resist and took one. I must admit that after having one I wanted to have another one but because I didn't want to be rude and ask, I bought a packet on the way home. When I tried one of my friend's Rolo's it brought back memories of the great taste.

                I bought my packet from a news agents which cost me about 37p. The price will vary depending on where you buy it. The Rolos still come in a golden foil wrapper and then they are wrapped in a brown thin papper which keep the Rolos together.

                The Rolos are small and individual in the foil whici makes them easy to share, even though most people are reluctant to do so. Each Rolo consists of a quite thick layer of creamy Nestle chocolate and they have a gooey, golden caramel centre. The caramel is the part that makes the Rolo sweet. I really enjoy Rolos, you can control how much you are eating because they are all individual.
                I wouldn't advise to eat these on a regular basis as they conotain a lot of sugar, but they are a nice treat on the odd occasion.

                I would advise to keep them a cool and dry place because they do melt quite easily. If they melt then you will end up with one big long sticky, chocolaty mess! I think that they are a great snack to enjoy in the evening with a nice brew!

                  Definately not worth trying

                  When I was little I can remember my nanny and granddad had a big tin of sweets. If I had been good, I was allowed to take my pick from the tin and take some sweets for the car ride home, the only stipulation being that I had to do it with my eyes shut. I can remember rummaging around the box of mars bars, snickers, and milky ways trying desperately to avoid the distinctively shaped booby prize: the pack of Rolo's.
                  I can't quite put my finger on why I dislike Rolo's but it has stayed with me into my adult years.

                  Rolos are small, thimble shaped chocolates filled with a kind of soft toffee / hard caramel; kind of like mini Mars bars but without the nougat. First of all I should say that I am not the biggest fan of caramel (unless it is Hotel Chocolat's Salted Caramel - sounds gross but is absolutely divine!). There is more to my dislike of Rolo's than this though. The chocolate they use has quite a strange flavour, too sweet and sickly for my taste. This is offset by the unpleasantly chewy texture of the toffee which in itself also has a strange and unpleasant flavour. After chewing it for a while, you are left with a sickly wad of toffee that refuses to disappear.

                  On those days when I did pick the Rolo's out of the tin I invariably got halfway through the pack and then gave the rest to my little brother. Before writing this review I brought a packet from my local newsagent (50p for a packet of 10 Rolo's) and the same thing happened; I got halfway through and had to give the rest away. For me to give away chocolate is by no means a regular occurrence and it should give you an idea of just how much I dislike these sweets!

                  WHAT MORE IS THERE TO SAY? THEY ARE ROLOLICIOUS!!!

                  When I was a little girl, I wasn't impressed by rolo's at all. They were too sophisticated for my immature taste buds, which at the time were more intrested in anything overly sweet and sticky.

                  Now I am older, I have to admit that Rolo are a weakness of mine. I think they offer a great confectionary experience. To me they offer so much more than a chocolate treat. They are the type of chocolates that require your undivided attention. In order to savour each delicious morsal.

                  The Rolo is manufactured by Nestle, however these chocolates were first introduced in the 30's by Mackintosh. Rolo comes in a cylinder shaped packet. This packet holds approx 12 Rolo sweets. The rolo's themselves are slightly cone shaped milk chocolates which have the most deliciously chewy caramel in the centre.

                  Rolo has quite a few dimentions to it's flavour. First you have the deliciously geneorous and sublime milk chocolate coating which melts effortlessly in the mouth. Then you have the creamy, sweet caramel flavour coming to the fore. The intense sweetness of the caramel balances perfectly with the richness of the chocolate coating.

                  The texture of the rolo is also perfect. The texture can be determind by your preference. If you would prefer a harder chocolate and a more solid caramel centre then I would put these chocolates into the fridge for a couple of hours before consuming. If like me you prefer to have a smoother chocolate with a runny and gooey caramel centre then leave them at room temperature for a while.

                  Everyone, from every generation knows the slogan that is associated with the rolo brand....'do you love anyone enough to give them your last rolo?'. This slogan has become, over time even more popular than the sweets themselves. People have proposed marriage by using a rolo as a prop. There is also a website dedicated to selling gold and silver plated rolos for ornamental purposes!!

                  Rolos are quite high in nutritional content. They offer a rather whopping 240 kcals per tube. There is also a unimpressive 10g of fat. I do think that this is reflected in the high quality of the product. I think that as part of a balanced diet there is no harm in having a packet of these now and again as a treat. However one should be careful not to over indulge as they are very fattening.

                  In conclusion I would certainly recommend these chocolates. They offer that little bit extra than your average run of the mill confectionary. They are very reasonable in price at around 50p and also they last a good while and are not gone in a couple of bites. I love rolo, infact I would give rolo my last rolo!!

                  .

                  You'll probably see from my reviews that I like Chocoalte and sweets. I like the odd pack of Rolos but it's not the kind of sweets that I buy that often. However i've been buying some Easter eggs now since they are in all the shops and at a not bad price, and 1 of them was a Rolo one which came with 2 packs of Rolo's.

                  These come in an individual roll which has about 12 sweets in it. They are stacked end to end and wrapped in a shiny gold wrapper and have a paper wrap around them. The colouring is a dark brown with white and yellow on it. Think it's been the same packaging for as long as I can remember.

                  These are quite simple bits of Chocolate. They are sort of circular shaped and flat on the bottom and get a bit narrower nearer the top of the Chocolate. All these are is some Chewy Caramel cased within a Chocolate coating. The Caramel is a bit tougher than say a Cadbury's Caramel, but still nice and chewy. Nice enough for to eat from the fridge and also at room temperature.

                  Although I like Nestle Chocolate I think it goes alright with Caramel products, and Lion bars are nice enough too.

                  Per roll these have about 200 calories. No one says you have to eat the whole pack at once, but once you start it's hard to stop.

                  As I mentioned these aren't that special, but it is just nice to eat a few of these and they take care of a small sweet tooth.

                  Great sweets with a versatile taste depending on the weather

                  ** Nestles Rolo **

                  I remeber the advertising campaign that went 'do you love anyone enough to give them you t last rolo?. My ex girlfriend of years back even put one inside a jewellery box and gave it to me - so effective was the ad campaign!

                  Now here I am years later still eating Rolos long after splitting with that girlfriend. What has changed? Not much.

                  The tubular pack is still the same old brown colour. The word ROLO is still wriiten boldly n the wrapper. The packaging has been twaked over the years but not intrusively so.

                  The pack still contains a selection of circular milk chocolate sweets. Each one encasing a creamy caramel filling. I find that the taste varies depending on temperature.

                  In the summer months because the cohocolate melts faster eating a single rolo results in a brief sweet slghtly chewy runny taste as the caremel and chocolate melt quickly. There is a sudden buzz of taste then a pleasant aftertaste as the Rolo dissapears.

                  In winter the chocolate stays much crisper so you can bite into it and snap it and the caramel ineterior is tthicker and chewier. I like both tastes so I don't mind which end of the year I eat Rolos but they do taste differently depending on how hot or cold it is.

                  If I am in the mood for the summer taste I can recreate it by leaving the Rolos in a warm room before consuming them. Or if I want the crisp taste I can just pop the Rolos in the fridge for a bit and still get that winter taste even in the height of summer.

                  ** My verdict **

                  Rolos are a tasty versatile treat that are still as good as ever.

                  Disadvantages

                  A good little snack

                  I'm generally not a fan of Nestle produce (much prefer Cadbury and Galaxy), but this is the one thing I make an exception for. A normal packet contains I think 10 chocolate covered toffees and weighs 52 gram. Normally they're about 55p for a packet.

                  I like these because the caramel inside is not horribly sweet and sticky or gooey like some are but is relatively solid whilst being eatable. The chocolate on the outside is not the greatest ever admittedly, but it is still perfectly edible.

                  For comparison, if you compare this with a Cadbury Caramel I think I prefer the caramel here. A cadbury caramel is nice but very gooey and sticky. Here the caramel is not massively sticky but has a nice solid texture to it which is one of the reasons why I like it so much. The chocolate is not as good as cadbury however and has less of a taste to it. As I have said earlier though that doesn't mean it's horrible simply not as nice as some others.

                  The nutrition info is 246 calories and 5.3 grams of fat, but I think it is better to just use your common sense on how much to eat. Because they are split up, you could always just eat half the packet and eat vthe other half (or how ever many you want) at some later point in time (or you could even share them if you don't want the whole packet).

                  Great tasting soft toffees wrapped in thick chocolate

                  Nestle Rolos are great for chomping on when the mood takes you; these are a great tasting equivalent to chewing toffee I would say.

                  The look?

                  These come in a brown tube with gold foil at either end, the rolos are stacked next to each other tightly in the roll so you get a few for your money. The rolo itself is a chewy toffee caramel covered in thick milk chocolate, with a couple of rolo circles on each individual rolo. The logo on the outside of the packet has the rolo words looking like they are....well..."rolling" I suppose.

                  Price?

                  Five 52 gram multipack with 5 tubes in will cost you around £1.49, these cost around 45p individually


                  About the Taste?

                  These are fairly chewy what with the soft toffee inside, these taste really good and once the chocolate flavours kick in these taste even better, these do get stuck in your teeth a bit but they will do being toffee I suppose.

                  Healthy?

                  Traffic lights has the sat fat and sugar levels at red and the fat as yellow and salt as green


                  Conclusion?
                  A great tasting toffee treat, plenty in a tube to offer round your friends

                  A sweet and tasty chocolate!

                  My mum gave me a pack or rolos the other day, yes not just her 'last one' but a whole pack so of course I said sod the diet and munched my way through the whole pack! I can't believe I havn't had them for so long.

                  Rolos come in a deep brown packet, tube shaped and the tube clearly says Rolo in bright red writing, above this telling us they are provided by Nestle. When you peel the outter brown packet off you come to a shiny, golden foil which is delicately wrapping around 9 rolos in total. Each rolo is stacked neatly on top of each other then wrapped neatly together to hold them in their 'tube' shape.

                  Each 5 Rolos contains;
                  125 calories
                  5.4g fat

                  Each rolo chocolate is a sort of short and dumpy cylinder shaped milk chocolate coating a smooth, golden toffee. They are flat at the bottom and becoming a little narrow at top offering us a circle top, swirly top. The chocolate is smooth, thick and creamy, it provides a little bite and crunch but it soon softens and melts in your mouth so deliciously. A sweet, creamy chocolate that is then softened and sweetened even more by thick, scrumptiously smooth toffee. The toffee is only slightly chewy but very enjoyable and it combines beautifully with the creamy, sweet chocolate. Theres just one downside for me, they are just not big enough!

                  No way would I share MY last rolo !!

                  If however you are not greedy like myself these are a good sweet to be able to share as they come seperate in the pack rather than one bar, but to me that's a downside lol!

                    great chocolate concept

                    Rolos are a chocolate sweet product that I really like the idea of, they are fairly simple in that they are basically just chocolate with caramel inside and there a tons of chocolate bars out there which are just like this, however there aren't other chocolate products that come in little separate chocolate sweets like rolos do and its for this that I really love them.

                    They come in a tube kind of shape, they are all stacked up on top of each other and you get quite a lot in a pack, probably around about 10 rolos and they aren't badly sized either.

                    They are circular in shaped with a circle top and a flat bottom, they have then got the nestle chocolate coating which I really like, and even though it is not necessarily my favourite brand of chocolate it does go really well with the soft but chewy caramel inside which just melts in your mouth once you bite into the rolo.

                    Rolos are just a fantastic product, they are great to eat on your own and are great to take out with you if you fancy chocolate as you don't have to et it all in one go. They are also really nice for sharing and because you get quite a few of them you can just offer the odd one to people and then keep the rest to your self which is what you will want to do once you have tasted how nice these are.
