The Breakaway (made by Nestle) is a basically a digestive biscuit covered in milk chocolate. Compared to the tens, if not hundreds, of similar snack products on the market, the Breakaway is probably one of the smallest, and it's also one of the least flamboyant. Currently, the Breakaway multipack (containing nine bars) can be picked up for the very reasonable price of £1 from Tesco. In terms its packaging, the humble Breakaway comes in an orangey yellow wrapper featuring blue text which boldly proclaims the product's name.

Appearance & Taste

The flavour is pleasant enough, albeit a little predictable, with a thinnish layer of chocolate covering the biscuit centre. The chocolate is quite creamy, and is patterned with a chequered design on its surface. Overall, the flavour is undoubtedly tasty, albeit a little boring.

All in all, the Breakaway is a decent little biscuit which represents good value for money. The problem is the fact that the bar is too small, and it's not exactly the most exciting eating prospect. I would probably regard the Breakaway as a snack for the older person - in fact it was my Gran who bought the Breakaways... and she only did so as the shop was all out Kitkats (hence my title).
