Barrat Nougat Bar
Advantages: A nice blast from the past
Disadvantages: VERY high in calories
I had not had one of these bars for a long time, but stumbled across them at my local Morrisons whilst mooching around the sweet treats section. They are a bit of a blast from the past, so I thought I would give one a go again and see if I still liked them.
The bar is quite big, so you do get a lot for your money. They are generally priced at around 45p.
There are two distinct coloured sections that make up this bar which are pink and white. The pink section is raspberry flavoured, this is lovely and sweet with a nice fruity raspberry flavour to it and the white section is vanilla, that has a more subtle smooth flavour. I have to say that the flavours really do work well together. And not forgetting that there are a sprinkling of peanuts throughout the bar that adds an extra dimension to the texture and taste of the Nougat bar.
The nougat bar is really soft and chewy when you bite into it, but there is also a crunch that is provided by the peanuts that makes it an interesting eat.
Ingredients: glucose syrup, sugar, beef gelatine, peanuts, desiccated coconut, cornflour, flavourings and colour (cochineal).
Each bar contains (based on a 113g bar).
of which saturates: 2.4g
So as you can see from above these bars are not very good for you, and its fair to say you would not go near one if you were on a diet.
I have to say that although I did like the bar, I don't think I will be rushing out to buy one again. For me they are a bit of a pain to eat as they do get quite sticky, and because the bar is so big it is difficult to eat in one go, and a bit sickly to eat in one go too. Also taking a quick glance at the calories, I think there are a lot in there just for one bar, and I don't think I could justify eating them that much when they contain so many calories.
Summary: A very sweet treat
