Nestlé Yorkie Bar
Advantages: Huge Bar of Chocolate
Disadvantages: Too sweet
Every week I take my children to the local swimming pool for their swimming lesson and afterwards if they have tried really hard and concentrated they get a chocolate out of the vending machine. Unsurprisingly they choose the most expensive and biggest bar they can see which always happens to be a Yorkie bar.
Not wanting to spend more than have to, and drooling at the mouth watching my kids eat chocolate without me I always ask for a chunk from each of them which they *usually* give to me happily.
On a standard Yorkie you get 6 chunks in a bar and they are massive chunks compared to a Cadbury's Dairy Milk bar. I would hazard a guess that the chucks are twice as high and just a little wider, meaning you get a real mouthful of chocolate with each one. As the chocolate is so dense in each section it is really hard to bite through it and get a smaller mouthful, at least for my children it is, so they end up putting a whole chunk in their mouth and hardly being able to chew it is so full.
I like Yorkie chocolate but nowhere near as much as Cadbury or Galaxy chocolate and this I think is due to a sweeter taste. There is something in Yorkie that means I can taste the sugar content a lot more than Cadbury for instance. It is not as creamy either and sometimes feels almost gritty in the mouth. It is not an unpleasant tasting chocolate but would not be my choice if I were getting a bar from the machine. Perhaps it is the sugar content that makes it seem gritty when chewed and although I do have a very sweet tooth, I usually end up feeling a bit sick if I eat a whole bar of this.
In terms of price then this is quite an expensive chocolate at about 60p from a shop for a bar on its own and they are not something I have ever seen in snack size - which would be a good idea to be honest - although you can get a biscuit Yorkie from Sainsbury's which are great for the lunch boxes.
Calories - do I need to say it again? No, they are loaded with sugar, fat and calories so don't even go there if you are on a diet. They are not good for you and never will be so their only reason for being on sale is for your personal satisfaction and enjoyment if you have a sweet tooth.
By the way - They're not just for boys! (My daughter cried over this once when my son told her she couldn't have one 'cos "they're not for girls!")
Summary: Not my favourite sweet treat.
