Snickers - am I not me when I'm hungry?
Member Name: NicoleFury
Advantages: TASTY!, Packed with nuts
Disadvantages: high in calories
As a child I was probably quite unusual in the fact that I got no pleasure in eating chocolate. Over time however, I have grown to love the stuff.
A Snickers bar is a chocolate bar that pre-dates myself in another name, the Marathon bar. For me,a question I've always asked people when buying chocolate is whether they preferred a Snickers bar or Mars Bar. I am firmly in the Snickers camp.
After I got through the ticket barriers at the train station on my way to work I got handed a promotional Snickers bar which came in an "IN CASE OF EMERGENCY BOX" which is linked to their latest marketing promotion, "You're not you when you are hungry". The promotion has been run online, in adverts and now in promotional events like this, and the suggestion is that when you are hungry you are inclined to do things that are totally out of character for you. The campaign is attempting to appeal to women more than its previous promotions which have included the tag lines, "Get some nuts".
I wouldn't say this chocolate bar immediatly appeals to women, it is one chunky chocolate bar! The packaging is almost masculine looking aswell, with the bold font on a brown background.
The taste however is DIVINE!
I love anything with nuts in, especially peanuts. Snickers is comprised of smooth milk chocolate wrapped around soft nougat which contains the nut pieces. There is also a layer of smooth caramel to give the chocolate bar a variety of textures.
Snickers bars are incredibly sweet however and one is definately enough! The calorie content is quite high on a Snickers at over 260 calories, so I have these as an occasional treat.
This chocolate bar is great for when you need a pick me up or a sugar boost, but overdoing this sickly treat will give you a sugar overload
Summary: yum yum chocolate!
