CHOCOLATE CARAMEL BAR FROM SOMEWHERE IN THE "EU".......
Terry's Caramel Bite bar

Terry's Caramel Bite bar
Advantages: Rich tasting, filling bars.
Disadvantages: The most dreadful "Naff" packaging.
I actually read a review on this Terry's Caramel Bite chocolate bar and then spotted it in my local newsagent's for the princely sum of 49p, being a fan of Terry's chocolate and intrigued by this new bar, I decided to give it a go for myself.
Terry's Caramel Bite~
I must admit, I have looked at this bar quite a few times or should I say "glanced over it", before it was brought to my attention, I will enlighten you forthwith~
Its awful, non descript, dull, unappealing and certainly nothing like the Terry's me and Dawn Love and trust.
Infact it just looks like a cheap unbranded chocolate bar, you know the ones I mean, "Dolly's" or "Mick's" (no offence to any Dolly's or Mick's who may be reading this review) but you get my drift?
It's a dull orange packet, with awful pictures of 2 very unappealing "lumps" of chocolate and 49p stuck in the corner.
The bottom half is black and states~
2 Bars of milk chocolate filled with crispy cereal, caramel & biscuit.
The photo at the top of the page makes it look alot better than it actually does.

How does it tase and smell?
Upon opening, there isn't a strong chocolate smell, its a very sweet caramel aroma with a hint of chocolate and Im sure Ive got a hint of the puffed rice( like a rice krispies smell).
The 2 bars are sat in a white cardboard tray, I presume to protect them in transit from somewhere in the EU.
On tasting I like the bar, its a fairly thin coating of chocolate(not the highest grade) with crispy, puffs of rice, crunchy chocolate biscuit and a dollop of caramel in the middle, all told I like it.
It's actually reminiscent of a "Double Decker" with out the chewy nougat layer.
Did it state Hazelnuts in the ingredients? Well I can't taste anything that resembles a Hazelnut, theres no evidence this bar has ever come into contact with a Hazelnut, in my opinion.
When buying an average chocolate bar ie Twix, Double Decker, Mars Bar, I would definitely buy it instead occasionally.
I couldn't eat both bars in one sitting as I found them very rich and filling, so will have to save the second bar for another day.
In my opinion its a rich tasting, filling chocolate bar on the same level as your average Twix, Double Decker that will fill a gap and offer you a change from our old favourites.
What Im not impressed with is the totally "Naff" wrapper, this is what happens when our illustrious, grand old chocolate factories are sold, closed down, dismantled and shipped off to "Somewhere in the EU" whats that supposed to mean? Do they even know where it was made? Whats happened to- "Made in York with pride", hand crafted by chocolatiers?
It makes my blood boil!
We want shiny foil wrappers that glint in the dark shop corners jumping out shouting choose me, making you feel like you have treated yourself, bought something special.
Not this dowdy, yucky orange and brown cheapo wrapper.
There we have it a decent chocolate bar that needs its packaging revamping or its going to get sadly over looked, I bet you have all walked past one and not even noticed it!
Available in newsagents if you can spot it lurking in a dark corner.
How many stars do I award? This is tricky because I really like the bar, but hate the packaging with a passion, to be fair to the bars Ive got to give them 3 stars.
Thank you for reading my review.
I set you a challenge, go out and find one buy it, try it and let me know what you think. Answers on a postcard.....
Summary: Tasty, rich, satisfiying chocolate bar.
