I'm nuts about this.

Advantages: Lovely and sweet, lots of texture
Disadvantages: A little large to eat all at once .
Recently, on a trip the corner shop, I decided that I needed something sweet and yummy, and was delighted to see Snickers Flapjacks stacked up next to the till .
Essentially, this is a flapjack with elements of Snickers bars mixed in . So, take your standard oaty, syrupy flapjack, and to this mix add caramel, peanuts, and plenty of chocolate . It's 56g in size, and I paid about 75p for mine at the corner shop .
The pack recommends storing these in the fridge, and then letting them warm up before eating, and I would second this, as eaten right from the cupboard they are a little too soft and crumbly, and are prone to breaking up .
The flapjack element of this is lovely and moist, with a rich sweet buttery taste, and threads of caramel throughout . The peanut chunks are quite large, roughly half a nut size each, and do have a tendency to get stuck in my teeth . I would also say that these were the most bland part of the bar with not a lot of flavour coming from them . The chocolate was smooth and rich, spread in an even layer along the top, and melted easily in the mouth.
Personally, I loved this, apart from the peanuts getting stuck in my teeth . And in all honesty, I found the size of this rather large, as the sweetness stared to get to me about halfway through . I think a smaller sized version of this would have suited me perfectly, especially considering that this took a lot of chewing and had a lot of flavour to it .
I sadly don't have the packaging to hand, so don't have the nutritional information with me, but I would imagine that this is something to eat occasionally rather than every day . It's a lovely little treat though, and 4 stars from me , one off for it being rather large and rather rich for me to eat all in one go .
