Take Some Time Out!
Member Name: star3683
Advantages: tasty, good value when purchased in multi-packs, ligher in calories than many other bars
I have a very sweet tooth and really love Cadbury's chocolate and one bar that I really enjoy is the Time Out. It was introduced by Cadbury's in 1992 (thank you Wikipedia) which is surprisingly longer than I expected. The Time Out bar comprises a stick of two wafer layers sandwiched together with a rippled chocolate centre all covered in milk chocolate.
You can purchase Time Out bars individually getting two fingers in each pack or in multi-packs which comprise of individually wrapped fingers. My last purchase of time out bars was from Tesco where I paid just £1.00 for 9 individual wrapped fingers in a multi-pack.
The time out bars come wrapped in a blue foil wrapper that can easily be tore open by the jaggered edges at the end. The wrapper has 'Time Out' written across the front with the 'O' made to look like a clock face, the Cadbury logo and the slogan 'Everyone needs some time out'. One the back of the wrapper you can find detailed ingredients listings and nutritional information.
As I purchased the multi-pack which contains individually wrapped fingers rather than a larger two finger bar I was surprised to see that they are not overly high in calories. Therefore it is possible to enjoy one of the one finger bars without feeling to guilty. Each single finger of time out contains the following nutritional information:
Calories - 85
Sugars - 7.3g
Fat - 4.8g
Saturates - 3.1g
Salt - 0.03g
Obviously if you purchase a two finger bar you just need to double these figures.
I really like the time out bars they are quite a light chocolate bar as they contain wafer but with the rippled milk chocolate centre and covering of milk chocolate it seems to feel like you have actually eaten more chocolate than you have. I also love the contrast between textures of the crisp, crunchy wafer against the smooth, creamy Cadbury's chocolate. When eating the bar it seems to crumble and the rippled chocolate centre reminds me of a flake, how it is so light and melts in your mouth. Also if you can have the self-control to just eat a single finger than it is possible to have a nice sweet treat and chocolate fix without consuming a huge amount of calories.
Overall to me this is another excellent chocolate bar from Cadbury's they are very tasty, good value if purchased in the single finger multi-packs and are a light option compared to other chocolate bars.
Summary: another great chocolate bar from Cadbury's
