I want to Breakaway!

Advantages: Nice thick biscuit and milk chocolate
Disadvantages: Not that exciting
A Nestle Breakaway is another chocolate biscuit that I remember from my childhood; these were always available in our house and were often found in my lunch box at school. They are a fairly simple humble product and are recognisable from their bright yellow packaging.
These kinds of biscuits as well as Club's and two finger Kit Kats are popular with families who have school age children as they can be purchased in multipacks of 9 or 18 for example making the individual cost low and then they can as said before put in to lunch boxes or eaten at home after school or as a treat. They are probably not as exciting as some more expensive brands as they are basically a thick rectangular wholemeal digestive biscuit which is then coated in thick milk chocolate. Similar to Kit Kats some folks like to bite of the chocolate first until they are left with the biscuit only remaining, although this can be a bit messy especially on a warm day when the chocolate is soft and starts to melt a bit.
You can currently buy nine of these on the Tesco website for £1.55 but it is the kind of item you can often find on special offer or promotion like buy one get one free for example. Each bar contains on average 99 calories and 5g of fat and so although smaller than many confectionery items these could be a nice treat or a good bar to eat in moderation as part of a healthy and active lifestyle.
Summary: Lunch box favourite
