Ah well, seeing as though I proposed this to be added to the product listings I had better write a review on it, hadn’t I?
We all know Snickers (or Marathon as it was for those of you old enough to remember!) as being a nutty, gooey, chocolate bar which filled a gap bigger than the one in Watford. Many a time I have ate of one of these as a child. However as I got older they lost their appeal somewhat, so much that I haven’t touched one in years.
That was until I tried a Snickers Cruncher……now my faith has been restored.
There I am, in work, getting a cup of tea from the vending machine (why is the tea & coffee in these things always foul?), when an orange coloured wrapper catches my eye. Possibly a Crunchie? No. Maybe it’s a Double Decker? Wrong again. Intrigued, I decided to give this a further look. Oh, it’s a Snickers. Not just any Snickers though, this is a Snickers Cruncher. Not seen one of these before my brain alerts me. Must be new. I’ll try anything once (food wise that is!) So in goes my hard earned 35p, and out pops this unusual golden wrapper. After studying it for a moment, reading it’s description as a combination of “ crisped rice, crunchy peanuts, caramel and chocolate”, I expectantly opened it, took a bite and …
Oh my God! Chocolate heaven!
How best can I describe this innovation in chocolate bars?
Here’s the ingredients ~
Fresh Roasted Peanuts (20%)
Crisped Rice (14%)
Skimmed Milk Powder
All wrapped together in a chocolate bar!
Ok, so it basically sounds like a Snickers crossed with a Toffee Crisp. Yes, and I would whole heartily agree with you as well. But god it tastes fine. One of my major reasons why I stopped eating Snickers is that they always tasted sickly after a while, and far too
strong a nutty taste. Not with the Cruncher version however my friends. A nice blend of nuts and rice, not overpowering by any means. The chocolate is a bit more subtle also and not right in your face or too sweet. Each bite fills your tastebuds with s combination of nuts, rice and thick caramel. This really is the best thing to come out of the Mars stable for a long, long time. Mars bars and Snickers may be the most popular in their product range, but I would suggest that this will become a very popular purchase in it’s own right, and not just a mindless addition to make a few extra quid by increasing the range. I really do suggest you try one o these (unless of course you are allergic to nuts in anyway) as they are very, very moorish. At 40g for a mere 35p it’s money well spent. Tuck in and enjoy!
As always you can contact Mars if you are not entirely satisfied at
