      A great product, really enjoyed them. Will be buying again.

      I thought I would try these out as I love Turkish delight, and I really enjoyed them.

      They cost £1.02 for 200g I'm not sure how many individual chocolates that equates to but I thought it was quite reasonable, and no - one else in my house likes turkish delight so they last me ages as I don't have to fight for them!

      The packaging is actually quite nice considering the price and that they are sainsburys own.

      They are essentially an after eight but the outside is milk chocolate and the inside is turkish delight. I have never seen these anywhere else and I thought they were a great idea, I think sainsburys do other flavours as well.

      These were best after they had been in the fridge for a while so the chocolate was nice and crispy. The chocolate actually surprised me by being pretty good quality and quite tasty. The turkish delight on the inside was softer than any other I have tried, as it's usually like a jelly, but this was a lot softer than that, but still really nice and had quite a subtle flavour so not overpowering like some turkish delights, and of course it was a beatiful pink colour.

      If you like turkish delight these are great to snack on. Also a good little stocking filler for anyone who likes turkish delight, it looks a bit nicer then a frys bar.

        Not bad!

        I love chocolate as a bit of an indulgent treat and usually spend around 55p on an ordinary bar of chocolate off a shelf in a newsagents so when I spotted these milk chocolate Turkish delight thins for 99p a box and that they're Sainsbury's own I put back my boring usual choice of Twix and opted to eat these that night in front of the television all to myself lol.

        The Packaging:

        Bright cerise pink oblong box and two sides of the box and the lid are all the same and I'm basically told they are Milk Chocolate Turkish Delight Thins and there's a photograph of the chocolates on there. Other information which is all situated on the bottom of the box includes a full nutritional information chart, ingredients and allergy advice is given, I'm told how to store them, the size is stated which is 200g and contact details for Sainsbury's are given. It's a nice, simple box that is informative enough and easy to open etc and it all doesn't look cheap and/or nasty.

        The Chocolates:

        Well you get 20 lined up in groups of 5 in a plastic tray inside the box. Appearance wise they are square, reasonably flat and have rippled milky coloured chocolate to the top of them and are flat and smooth chocolate everywhere else. Like I say they are rather thin, have a sweet aroma to them and when you bite into one you get a chocolate that snaps and cracks into the mouth and teeth go through a centre of translucent and sturdy (not drippy) light pink Turkish delight. The chocolate isn't rich enough or thick enough for my liking though it is passable and it's a little on the economy tasting side of things to me but the Turkish delight is rather nice, not too sweet, not one bit messy and it complements the chocolate rather well with a slight rose taste to it.

        Verdict:

        Eat too many of these and they become rather sweet and sickly rather quickly however in moderation I found these to be pleasant enough and I do think they are excellent value for money. If you like milk chocolate and/or Turkish delight at 99p a box you must try them and talk about a cheap little Christmas present that doesn't look shabby! Not bad, I've had better but you simply can't go wrong for the price of these in my opinion!
