      A good ice cream lolly from nestle; kids love them.

      These are a good blend of ice cream/lolly and the hundreds and thousands go well with the mix. My kids love these; they always have. I occassionally eat them too. They are really refreshing in the warm months. In fact, i was quite shocked when i went to my local Sainsburys today. They had very little ice cream/lollies even left! I was dissapointed to be honest and they didnt even have that much on special offer today.

      I decided to go for a '2 for £3.00' offer and i bought a box of 4 nobbly bobblys and a box of 3 Fruit pastille ices. I supposse if you think about 2 for £3.00 isnt too bad; meaning each ice cream/lolly is only around £0.42 pence each. However, i wish i had got them in Tescos now as they are currently on special offer there for only a £1.00 for the box of four!! Never mind, the offer lasts for a few more days yet, so i expect ill be going on another ice cream shopping trip soon!!

      Its been so warm lately that i think everyone is buying ice creams/lollies; the kids love them in this weather and i do too!

      Nobblys bobblys (i love the name! and i think its really appealling to children); have great packaging. Its really colorful. The boxes main colour is darkish pink. There are lots of little bobbles (tiny round sweet balls/hundreds and thousands) on the bottom of the box, with the Nobbly bobbly name printed in the middle of the box in bright colours. Next to this is a nobbly bobbly with a bite taken out of it. There are a few different coloured round shaped little men placed around the box. I guess i would call these characters nobbly bobbly men!

      The nobbly bobblys have an inside centre of chocolate flavoured ice cream, with strawberry flavoured ice cream; then a coating of chocolate over this and finally with the nobbly bobbly round coloured sugar balls placed all around the outside.

      Each nobbly bobbly is 70ml and contains 219kcals. There is, as expected, a high sugar content (25%).

      There are many different ingredients in nobbly bobblys; some of which are written below;
      reconsituted skimmed milk, Strawberry flavoured ice cream, vegetable oil, strawberry puree, glucose syrup Emulsifier, beetroot juice concentrate, stabilisers.

      Chocolate flavour ice cream; sugar, vegetable oil, fat reduced cocoa powder, reconstituted skimmed milk glucose syrup, whey powder, Emulsifier, stabilisers

      Chocolate flavoured coating; vegetable oil, whey powder, cocoa powder, emulsifier

      Coloured sugar balls; sugar, wheat starch, colours (beetroot ,curcumin, chlorophyll), glucose, glazing agent.

      This product may also contain traces of nuts. There are no artificial flavours or colours in Nobbly Bobblys.

      Nestle do some amazing ice creams and this is a good one; great for kids.

      Tastes lovely!

      Nobbly Bobbly

      I do like ice cream but as the cold winter approaches I will be eating less ice cream and more coffee and hot chocolate. Ice cream is my first choice of desert in the winter but I am rather fussy about which ice cream I eat.


      The ice cream was bought by my mum as it was half price. There are 10 in a pack costing £1.5 per pack from Iceland as they were reduced to clear. I prefer ice cream that is not in a tub but on a stick or cone. I think it's because it's easier just to take it out and eat rather than the ones in the tub.


      The ice cream has a chocolate ice cream core that is the main bulk of the ice cream (70%) and a strawberry ice cream covering it (25%) and a top layer of chocolate with hundreds of thousands (5%). The chocolate core is rather icey and not really creamy and the chocolate flavour is not very strong but I like it like this. The strawberry ice cream is nice and creamy and this is the prominent flavour. The chocolate covering on top with the hundreds and thousands is really nice and crunchy and doesn't really have much flavour.


      This ice cream does come on offer quite a lot of the time so we tend to buy it when there is an offer as the full price is normally £1.99 for 4 and £1 for 4 when on offer. I would eat this ice cream again. There is however a tendency for the ice cream to get soft and break if it takes you long to eat so if giving these to children then a bowl would be useful incase the ice cream breaks.

      Disadvantages

      Not just for kids.

      I used to love these as a kid, so when I spotted them in my local supermarket at 99p for 4, I thought I'd give them a go for old time's sake. I must say I wasn't dissappointed. In fact, they are even nicer than I remember.

      First thing I noticed is that they are a decent size, they don't appear to have shrunk like certain childhood favourites. Also worth noting is the fact that, despite the bright colours, they contain no artificial colouring. They are also suitable for vegetarians, unlike some similar ice creams.

      Anyway, down to the taste. The chocolate is rather nice and creamy, not that horrible synthetic stuff you often find on 'kids' sweets. The strawberry ice cream within is delicious, and somehow manages to be both super sweet and natural tasting. Inside this is what I can only describe as a chocolate ice lolly, which makes a nice icy contrast to the soft strawberry. All this is topped off with a generous coating of rainbow sprinkles, which give the lolly a satisfying crunch. Yum!

      A word of warnng though, they do melt very quickly. So you have to scoff it down fast so you don't end up with coloured sprinkles all over your clothes!

        Disadvantages

        These lollies are delicious but they are rather high in fat

        I can remember getting eager as a kid for the ice cream van to come so I could get my usual nobbly bobbly. All my friends couldn't wait to get their ice creams with a flake and monkey's blood (red syrup) but I always stuck with the nobbly bobbly.


        I still buy nobbly bobblys now and I enjoy them as much today as I did when I was a child. I tend to buy a pack of 4 and I usually look around for them considering you can pick them up on promotion in most stores for any 2 boxes of marked lollies for £3.00. Nobbly bobblys come in a very attractive hot pink box with a picture of the lolly on the front. They definitely stand out compared to other brands in the freezer.


        Nobbly bobbly basically contains a strawberry ice cream centre coated with chocolate and covered with tones of multi coloured sprinkles. They are crunchy until you get passed the sprinkled cover and smooth inside. Although all the lolly is nicely coated in sprinkles you will always find some strays in the packet as well as a few falling off.


        These lollies are very tasty and light and are a lovely treat however due to the centre being made from ice cream, you have to eat rather quickly as they are very fast at melting especially when eating outside on a sunny day.


        These lollies are quite high in fat and they are not the healthiest option when sticking to a diet. The nutritional values are as follows:


        Calories - 219

        Fat - 11.6g

        Saturates - 5.2g

        Sugar - 21.6g


        These lollies are not the best choice health wise and I must admit when seeing the nutritional values I was surprised and try to only eat these now as a rare treat. This can be hard to stick to as they are delicious. I love the crunchy sprinkled outside which is complimented beautifully by the smooth ice cream centre. I would definitely recommend.

          Disadvantages

          A tasty treat

          == Nestle - Nobbly Bobbly Ice Lolly ===


          We decided on a nice walk this afternoon along the seafront in Ryde, on the Isle of Wight. The idea was to walk through Apply Pitch and Putt, past the watch tower, along to get an ice cream at Dell café and then head round to Seaview. The best laid plans and all that.
          Jack was being a complete moaner and insisted we went into the children's play area right by Appley so we let him burn of some excess energy in the hope that the lure of an ice cream would speed him up. This was not the case and we dragged him to Dells café where we all sat down and ate a Nobbly Bobbly.


          After eating the ice cream his mood only became worse and we had to head back to the car before we all throttled each other! A fine family day out!


          Any how we had all opted for a Nobbly Bobbly due to the fact that this seems to be our preferred ice cream of choice of late and with the warmer weather setting in I am sure we will be eating a fair few of them this year whilst walking and on the beach!



          ==The Product==


          Nobbly Bobbly is made by Nestle which means that instantly a lot of people will be put off due to the ethics of the company. However it has been around for many years and I remember enjoying them myself as a child and probably got myself into the same sort of mess that Jack now gets himself into when eating it!


          The wrapping of the ice cream is pretty standard and I couldn't say whether this has changed at all over the years because really when any ice cream is put in front of me packaging is usually irrelevant. The packaging to date however is mainly pink with a picture of the ice lolly and a multicoloured Nobbly Bobbly logo. Thee are little round men of different colours scaling the logo and looking generally happy.


          The lolly is 70 ml and cost an unbelievable price of £1. Now I am sure I remember these costing only 40 pence a few years back but I could be mistaken. I cannot believe they have gone up this much and was quite astounded as you could get a Mr Whippy in a cone for the same price.


          The ice lolly/cream (I am not sure which category this falls in to) is basically made up of ¾ different layers. The centre of the ice cream is a solid chocolate ice cream which is held onto the stick. Then over the top of this is a layer of strawberry ice cream which is then covered in a thin layer of regular milk chocolate. Covering the entire outside of the lolly is a coating of hundreds and thousands which is probably the messiest part of the whole thing!


          The centre chocolate ice cream is very rich and creamy and tastes like proper Cornish chocolate ice cream and in my opinion better in taste than the strawberry layer. Although the strawberry is creamy and smooth it doesn't have the same density of the chocolate and therefore lagging behind in quality.


          The thin layer of milk chocolate is not really noticeable as it is really thin in consistency. I suppose it is really there just to allow the hundreds and thousands to stick on nicely and so that the inner ice cream doesn't melt too quickly. However the chocolate layer does give it somewhat of an added crunch combined with the wonderfully sweet and crunchy sprinkles on the outer layer. The sprinkles are all different colours but are prone to popping off rather easily and Jack made such a mess of himself that he liked it even more.




          ==My Opinion==


          I really do like these Ice Lollies/Creams and although they cost more than I am happy to pay for an ice cream, they do taste very nice and give me everything I would want on a warm day. They are refreshing yet sweet with a mainly creamy taste to them.


          There is one major drawback however and this is of course the calories and fat content of one single lolly. I really wish I hadn't reviewed this ice cream as I probably wouldn't have looked at the nutritional information otherwise and what you don't know wont make you fat - right? Well pre stick there are a whopping 219 calories, 11.6 grams of fat of which 5.2 grams is saturated and 21.6 grams of sugar. Well seeing this information has really put a spanner in the works and I may reconsider eating them quite as often as planned throughout the summer months.


          Overall I would have to say that although seemingly pricey like all these ice lollies are these days this one has got to be one of my favourites.
          It has a little bit of everything I like and if we were out and in need of an ice cream or lolly and this was available I would probably opt for this over anything else every time (unless I saw a Zapp but I haven't seen these anywhere for years!).


          I think a score of 4 stars out of 5 stars and even though they are really not very good for you and the fact that I resented paying £1 for a single stick, I felt the eating experience made it worth every penny.


          Highly recommended!


          Many thanks for taking the time to read.


          I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Confused lolly, too sort and oddly oily

            With a box of Nobbly Bobbly ice lollies you will get four 70g ice lollies.

            They are quite fatty tasting odd softish ice cream that has been coated all over in different coloured sprinkles. The ice cream is brown as if it should be chocolate but tastes as if it is a mixture of chocolate and strawberry. I was disappointed by these as I had thought they would be like a large version of the sprinkled end of a Fab bar. Even after they had been in our freezer for several days the ice cream remained oddly still quite soft and you can bite a peice off without any real effort. I found these tasted oily- both the ice cream and the sprinkles seemed to leave an oily taste in my mouth. Not the usual high Nestle product standard I have grown to expect.

            The ice cream is below par for Nestle and at £1.89 for a box of four (as opposed to 99p for a box of 8 fab bars) I would rather buy the Fab bars.

            One lolly is 157 calories and 8.2g of fat. This is a little less than I would have thought having tasted the lolly.

            A great ice cream that takes me back to my child-hood.

            ***ABOUT NESTLE***
            I'm sure many of you will have heard of Nestle who make a great range of confectionary, Ice creams, yogurts, cereals, drinks and other great products including pet food as well. Some of their ice creams include popular and family favourites such as Fab, Mint Crisp, Orange Maid, Rolo, Smarties, Fruit Pastille lollies and more.

            Nestle opened their first factory back in 1905 and over the year's Nestle have acquired other famous names including Rowntree's. In 1913 chocolate production began, which included the launch of the famous white chocolate Milky Bar in 1937.

            Even now Nestle prove to be a well known and popular brand and one of the top favourite brand's when it comes to ice-creams and confectionary.

            ***NOBBLY BOBBLY'S***

            I always used to have this lolly as a child and have to admit that I still love this lolly now and I am 24 yrs old. It reminds me of my child-hood and my nephew also loves these lollies as well, so we often buy them for him.
            These yummy lollies come on a wooden stick and have a yummy chocolate middle which is then coated in a light pink/purple strawberry flavoured ice cream and then on top of this yummy ice cream is a nice layer of chocolate covered in hundreds and thousands.

            Each Ice Cream contains the following:

            * Fat - 8.2g
            * Sat Fat - 3.1g
            * Sugar - 18.4g
            * Salt - 0.1g

            Contains: Wheat Starch, Milk, Whey Powder and Soya Lecithin's.
            This product may contain nuts

            ***APPEARANCE/SMELL***
            These come individually wrapped in a bright pink wrapper with Nobbly Bobbly in big bubble writing on front of the packet. You can't mistake this ice cream for anything else because the colour of the packaging is bright and really stands out. At the end of the packaging there is a zig zag cut which makes the packet easy to tear to get the lolly out.

            When taking the lolly out of the packet I can smell a very sweet smell and also a light chocolatey smell as well. The lolly just looks like a chocolate lolly covered in lots of colourful hundreds and thousands.

            ***TASTE TEST***
            When licking this lolly it tastes very sweet and is a rough nobbly texture from the hundreds and thousands on the outer side of the ice cream. The chocolate layer has a nice thickness to it and you will often find big pieces of the outer layer coming off. You will also notice that the hundreds and thousands tend to drop off as well when you are eating this. When getting through the chocolate layer covered in hundreds and thousands which is very sweet and melts in the mouth you will notice a pink/purple coloured ice cream underneath. This ice-cream tastes lovely and fruity and hidden beneath this is chocolate flavoured ice cream which is very sweet and tastes so creamy and chocolatey.

            This ice cream was very sweet and definitely helped any sweet cravings I might have had. I think is a delicious ice-cream if you like things sweet but if you prefer something more plain and not so sweet I would advise you to try something else instead.

            ***PRICE AVALIABILITY***
            These are available to buy in boxes of 4 at the following supermarkets.

            * Tesco - £1.99
            * Asda - £1.89 (also on offer which is any 2 for £3.00, valid until 31/12/09)
            * Sainsbury's - £1.90
            * Ocado - £1.99

            You can also buy these from Iceland and you can buy them as single lollies form some local shops as well.

              Disadvantages

              Great for children and adults

              Nobbly Bobbly is an ice lolly product from Nestle aimed at Children.

              It sells in Sainsbury's for £1.99 for a packet of four.

              Nobbly Bobbly is a strawberry and chocolate flavoured icecream coated in hundreds and thousands. The packaging is bright pink and definately aimed at children.

              The product tastes great in a mass produced, simplistic way. The hundreds and thousands remind me of my childhood and the chocolate/strawberry combination is very tasty. The ice lolly is aimed at children and therefore smaller than other alternatives but it is filling and a summer treat.

              The packaging boasts that Nobbly Bobbly contains no artificial colours, flavours or additives. Each ice lolly has 11 grams of fat and 26 grams of sugar. The full nutritional information is below:
              Typical values per 100g/ml Per 70ml Lolly
              Energy 1307kj 915kj
              Energy 312kcal 219kcal
              Protein 2.9g 2g
              Carbohydrate 38.1g 26.6g
              of which sugars 30.9g 21.6g
              Fat 16.5g 11.6g
              of which saturates 7.4g 5.2g
              Fibre 0.6g 0.4g
              Sodium 0.04g 0.03g

              I doubt that I would buy this product if it was not on offer. However, it does remind me of how icecream used to be before Magnums and luxury products entered the market. It is less rich and heavy than premium products and is a lighter, satisfying treat.

                A throwback to childhood treats

                Nobbly Bobbly's are a sophisticated after dinner treat, subtle in flavour, stylish and understated in their appearance....ok so I've made that up, Nobbly Bobbly's are chocolate ice lollies covered in hundreds and thousands, their messy, they look very garish and yet they are utterly gorgeous.

                I bought some recently on a whim as they were on special offer with a box of 4 costing 99p in Sainsbury's. The offer is only for a limited period but is well worth checking out as the weather gets warmer.

                The lollies, made by Nestle are packaged in a bright pink box and covered in plastic wrapping, make sure you get them home quickly in the hot weather, ours started melting and lollies from one of the boxes were seriously misshapen due to this.

                They look very nice if you are 4 years old, covered in hundreds and thousands, you have the variety of chocolate, ice cream and crunchy hundreds and thousands, they are really a kids ice lolly and that is what appealed to me, sometimes you want a sophisticated adult dessert and sometimes you just want a messy ice lolly that reminds you of childhood.

                The flavour is lovely, the chocolate does taste manufactured, the hundreds and thousands are there just to give the lolly a subtle contrast and overall it has a fun and inoffensive flavour.

                They really are nothing special and you would only buy these if you have kids, if you remember them from childhood or if you are attracted by the appeal of the pink box or the hundreds and thousands, but it is appealing for these reasons.

                The lollies are currently great value, they aren't filling for an adult, but for kids they are a real treat and at 99p for four they are currently really great value for money as well.

                  Disadvantages

                  Treat yourself- it isn't sunny often.

                  When the sun actually shines here I get in the summer mood very quickly, lets face it, if you don't you might miss the summer altogether. Obviously this weekend was so hot I promised the children I would get the nice man from Tesco to bring some lollies in my delivery. On checking their website I discovered these at 99p so decided they would be ideal.

                  They arrived in a very vivid pink box, you certainly wouldn't miss them on the freezer shelves in store. There was an aillustation of the lolly with lots of coloured ball characters around. They are presented in packs of 4 and are individually wrapped inside as you would expect.

                  Obviously although I had bought these for the children I had to try one in the name of market research! Once out of the packet I was pleased with the size, sometimes I feel things look a lot smaller out of the wrapper. The lolly is generously coated with coloured sugar balls and I was pleased to see that they are not day-glo colours. On checking I realised there were no artificial colours (or flavours or preservatives.) The balls are embedded in a thin chocolate coating. Inside there is strawberry flavoured ice-cream and in the centre there is firmer chocolate ice-cream.

                  I thoroughly enjoyed eating this, it didn't melt too quickly so there were no sticky hands and it didn't fall off the stick.The flavours go well together and it wasn't as sickly as I was expecting although the strawberry flavour is very sweet.

                  Everything was going well until I spotted the calorie content- 219 per lolly! This seemed quite a lot to me but I suppose it does taste very creamy so it is no surpise but I wont be treating myself too often. The children loved them and I like to buy them as a treat.

                    Adults can eat kids food too!

                    The sun is shining, summer is here at last, it must be time to fill the freezer with cooling delicious ice lollies!

                    Shopping in Tescos today, I was delighted to see that they have got Nobbly Bobblys half price at 99p for four, so in my trolley they went. I can remember going to the corner shop as a child and buying them with my pocket money, so these lollies hold a certain amount of nostalgia for me. I think they now retail individually at around 90p. Nobbly Bobblys are situated among the childrens lollies and are predominately aimed at kids as a fun product but my children don't care for them much which is great, all the more for me!

                    Made by Nestle they come in a striking pink box with a big image of the lolly on the front and Nobbly Bobbly written in bold colourful letters. Cartoon hundreds and thousands are dotted around the box in a fun and playful manner. These boxes are very easy to spot in the freezer department, and I can imagine that the design of the box would be particularly appealing to children.

                    Each lolly is packaged individually in a cellophane wrapper, again in pink with the same picture as is on the box. Pulling the lolly out of the wrapper can be a bit messy, as the lolly is covered in hundreds and thousands. Some have inevitably fallen off, and are about to drop all over your lap, but this is part of the charm!

                    This lolly is made of layers, on the outside there is a covering of chocolate (actually it is "chocolate flavour coating") dipped in hundreds and thousands ("coloured sugar balls"). The chocolate is just thick enough to be the perfect consistancy so that you can suck it off, and the balls are not too crunchy, but add a satisfying texture and lovely flavour. Inside there is a soft layer of gorgous strawberry ice cream, which covers the middle core consisting of firmer chocolate ice cream. All of these ingredients taste fantastic individually, but when added together they make for a most pleasurable experience, one which I intend to repeat until the box is empty!

                    Each 70ml Nobbly Bobbly contains 219 calories and 11.6g of fat, so these should really be an occasional treat, but you have to do something naughty to counter act all of those summer salads!

                    Although I admit that these are not in the same league as your premium ice cream lollies, these have a great flavour, are half the price, and half the calories which can't be bad!

                      Nobbly bobbly fun!

                      It seems a little strange to be writing about ice cream as the days are definitely getting cooler. However, we have just discovered these in Sainsburys and as my daughters love ice cream or lollies as a pudding sometimes, we wondered what they would be like. They had two things that instantly appealed to the girls. Firstly the name! Well anything that dares to call itself Nobbly Bobbly has to be good and both girls thought these sounded like a lot of fun. Secondly there was the picture on the packaging and the appeal of loads of hundreds and thousands on a lolly was enormous!

                      Now on to the factual bits....

                      Nobbly Bobbly ice creams are made by Nestle and they come in packs of four. In Sainsburys these cost £1.99 per pack but we were enticed by the current BOGOF offer! As a parent I was very pleased to see that they contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. There are also nutritional values on the packet and it's interesting to note that these relate to a child's guideline daily amounts. A 70 ml lolly contains 219 calories which is 12% of a child's GDA but I was a bit horrified when I realised that sugar at 21.6g was a whopping 25% GDA. This is probably why they are probably best for an occasional treat rather than to eat on a regular basis! They are also suitable for vegetarians.

                      Now if you are a three or a five year old these ice cream lollies do look incredibly attractive although I have to admit that they don't do much for a much older mummy! When you open each one from their individual wrappers all you see is the immense covering of sprinkles. Well my three year old's eyes nearly popped out of her head - she must have thought she was in sprinkle heaven! I think they also really liked the difference that the nobbly bobbly texture provided.

                      Beneath all of these hundreds and thousands there is a layer of chocolate which covers the strawberry flavoured ice cream centre. It does sound like a very inviting combination and both my daughters really loved all of these flavours particularly my yougest daughter who wolfed hers down incredibly quickly. However, my older daughter tends to be a lot more delicate in her eating habits and she likes to take things much more slowly and steadily so she can savour what she is eating at her leisure. This did cause a slight problem because if you do not eat it quickly enough it does all start to disintegrate and the chocolate slides off making a sloppy mess. It's always best to insist that they eat it over a bowl. There is also a warning that some of the colours may stain so it's probably best that they don't eat them whilst wearing pristine white dresses!

                      Overall then, these nobbly bobbly ice cream lollies have provided a tasty treat for my girls and have made an interesting alternative from their usual yoghurts. I do think that the sugar content seems alarmingly high which is why I won't be buying them on a regular basis, but I don't mind every once in a while. They are also fairly reasonably priced and even better value if they are on offer.

                      My daughters think they are great and they receive a big thumbs up from them! And of course, whatever makes my girls smile...

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        A lolly worth fighting for, (of course i never win!)

                        As mentioned in my previous "FAB ice lolly" review, I stated that Asda is currently running a deal where you can purchase two boxes of certain ice lollies for £3.00, the second box of lollies that my son was responsible for picking are the previously unknown to me brand of "Nobbly Bobbly's".

                        These are also produced by Nestle, which from what I can gather, are the front runners in the iced confectionary market.

                        ~~~~~~ THE PACKAGING ~~~~~~

                        The box is rectangular in shape and cerise pink in colour. Due to the lolly being covered in hundreds and thousands, the picture featured on the front is a sea of sprinkles, above this on the right hand side is a picture of the lolly with a bite taken out to show the difference in colours running through the centre. Next to this is the name "Nobbly Bobbly" in bold and extremely colourful text, very eye catching! Also dotted around the picture are what can only be described as cartoon sprinkles, all again brightly coloured.
                        This certain box only contains four lollies, a good two less than most other brands, and in so doing makes it one of the smaller boxes in the freezer section.
                        This product also claims to be free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.

                        ~~~~~~ THE LOLLY ~~~~~~

                        When removed from the box, you will note that the plastic sleeve that holds each individual lolly carries the same colour scheme as the outside box.
                        When removed from the package, you will inevitably be showered with sprinkles, there always seems to be a good spoonful that hasn't adhered to the chocolate layer around the outside of the lolly. You will also notice that due to the lack of artificial colours in this product the sprinkles are a lot less vivid in colour than the ones shown on the front of the box, this does not however change the taste in any way or form.

                        ~~~~~~ THE TASTE ~~~~~~

                        As expected the taste is delicious, (again I have had to try one for quality control!), once you munch your way through the crunchy outer layer of sprinkles and chocolate, you get to the strawberry ice cream, complemented beautifully with the chocolate ice centre, with the centre being ice and not cream it makes the taste a little lighter and less sickly.
                        Again this is a lolly that is easy to eat straight from the freezer, even though the outside is crispy, the centre is soft and creamy giving it a sublime difference in texture making it a more interesting experience.

                        ~~~~~~ NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION ~~~~~~

                        These are a lot higher in calories, sugars and fat, so must be eaten as part of a healthy and varied diet, and only as an occasional treat.

                        Calories - per 70ml lolly - 219 kcal
                        Sugar - 21.6g
                        Fat - 11.6g, of which saturates - 5.2g

                        For the Weight Watchers out there that makes these 4.5 points, not terrible, but I am sure that you could think of something better to use them on!

                        Again this product states that it may contain nuts.

                        ~~~~~~ PRICE AND AVAILABILITY ~~~~~~

                        As I mentioned earlier these are part of a long term offer available from Asda, 2 boxes of lollies for £3.00, other brands available as part of this offer are Feasts, calypso's, mini milks and many, many more!
                        Availability I am unsure of, as I don't tend to shop anywhere but at Asda, I know they are readily available there, but as I was previously unacquainted with this product, I can only assume they are available in the supermarkets.

                        ~~~~~~ CONCLUSION ~~~~~~

                        These are my favourites at the moment, even surpassing the wonderful Fab lollies, I think it is for the simple reason there is more chocolate on this one! These are also my son's favourites at the moment, and with there only being four in each box, I don't expect to get another one from him, boooo!

                        Thanks for reading x
