Advantages: They taste like the good old Mars bars did

A taste of Heaven MMMMMMMMMMMMMM.... just lovely
Throughout the years spent working in the hills and mountains around the UK I ate well lots and lots of Mars bars, when Mars changed the contents about 8 - 10 years ago I went off them. My wife handed me one of Asda's Caramel bites, WOW! A blast from the past alright!
I said to my wife "they are mars bars", she said "I know I just had mine". "No" I said "they taste like the old mars bars".
They are about ¾ the size of the mars bars, but taste divine! Compared to the multipack mars bars (party size) they are about twice the size. One of these is enough for me who is nearly 40. If you are one of those who dips there biscuits in their coffee or tea and eats the biscuit whole, then like me you will probably find that there is more than one bite full in these caramel bites. No it is not a challenge to see if you can fit one into your mouth whole! Savour the taste MMMMMMMMMMM!
As for what they are made of and their nutritional values:
Of which sugars 23.1g
For me the priority is to know how much fat is in them for others it may be fat and sugar, well the fat content in it is OK for this type of bar, the sugar is a little high especially for those who react to high sugar content. So it really depends on who you are and what you are doing, for me I like a piece of chocolate a day, normally around lunchtime because I get the itches if I eat chocolate after tea time (weird I know, but that is me and my body!) When roaming the hills I might eat two or three of these a day, but I was burning it off if you know what I mean.
OK that is the selling point over with, well actually it's not, these cost £1 for 8 * 40g, that means that for £1 you get the equivalent of 6 normal sized Mars bars, by my estimations and a mars bar will set you back about 50p so a saving of about £2. 10 out of 10 to Asda!
To sum it up I would like to say that these mars bars wrapped in Asda's Carmel bites wrapper are probably the best thing out of Asda for a while.
Summary: A blast from the past, the taste of a good old Mars bar, wrapped in an Asda Caramel bites wrapper!
