Advantages: Great chocolate / caramel combo
Disadvantages: Old fashioned packaging
It had been a long long time since I had had a Rolo so when my friend had a pack the other day I took one and was reminded of how nice they are especially since I am quite a big caramel fan. When I then saw a three-pack for a £1 I couldn't resist and accidentally eat one pack on the way home.
Rolos have been around for ages and for as long as I remmber have been advertised with the slogan of 'do you love anyone enough to give them your last Rolo?' I haven't seen any adverts for them just recently but they did do quite a funny campaign with some people on the train with Rolos lying on the table and the train going through a black tunnel and when it came back out in the daylight they had all gone. I think it's one of those slogans like Mars 'a Mars a day helps you work, rest and play' or Nestlé's Milkybar Kid which will be remembered for a long time.
One thing I am surprised at is that they have not changed the packaging. In fact, the packaging has changed very little over the years I think with just a font change or two here and there. Due to that fact, I think most people would recognise it. However, one thing that many other bars have changed is the foil and paper packaging. Thinking of Kitkat, they used to use foil and paper but now just use that shiny wrapping stuff and I am surprised that Nestle have not implemented the same changes here as I personally find it annoying getting little bits of foil everywhere, or worse, stuck in the caramel. Currently, it is dark brown pape with the words Rolos written in red loopy writing and the foil inside is gold. I think there is about 10 Rolos in a pack and they sell for about 50p-60p.
Each Rolo is a cup of caramel covered in milk chocolate. To look at, the caramel looks as if it could be quite chewy but when you start to eat it, you will find that this is not the case. It becomes quite soft and melted once it's in the heat of your mouth. The chocolate is also really good and is very rich and creamy and the two of them merge together really well. They are very moreish though and it's very very hard to eat just one. Would I give someone my last one? Probably. Though I like them very much, they aren't my favourite chocolate.
Summary: Yum in my tum
