Ever since the new Home Bargains store opened in my home town I've been hooked on these bars. When the store first opened last year I was looking through all the cheap sweets they were selling when I noticed this bar of nougat. At 39p it was cheaper than a standard chocolate bar and at 113g it was much bigger. So I bought one, and ate it on the way home. I loved it so much I turned around and when back in and bought a few more.
The bar comes in a flimsy pink and white wrapper which is not as substantial as a standard Cadbury's wrapper, but it is easy to open.
Inside the wrapper there is one long bar that has two halves. A pink one that is raspberry flavoured and a white one which is vanilla flavoured. They compliment each other perfectly with the raspberry section providing a more fruity flavour and the vanilla half giving a more plain flavour. The nougat itself contains plenty of coconut and as a nice little extra there are large peanut chunks scattered throughout the bar which give it a bit of crunch and an extra nutty flavour.
The nougat is solid and rubbery but not too hard. It's quite chewy which means you can't eat it very quickly. There is also a good coconut content which adds to the chewiness, and the flavour.
As you might expect the bars aren't very good for you. The main ingredients are glucose syrup and sugar. A single bar contains 425 calories and 4.2g of fat. Needless to say you should not have one if you're on a diet.
If the 113g bars are too big then also at Home Bargains you can get 4 more manageable 43g bars for just 59p.
Summary: A great and classic sweet
