Advantages: Ludicrously tasty, Irrisistable. Attractive packaging.
Disadvantages: I had some problems seperating the bar into sections, maybe they want you to eat it all at once? ;)

~ ~ Packaging ~ ~
The Nonsuch Walkers Original Toffee comes packages in a clear plastic wrapper sealed at both ends with a blue strip at each end. Across the back of the packaging is the normal ingredients and allergy and nutritional information in three different languages. The best before date is also printed on the back of the wrapper. On the front the Walkers logo is shown along with the titles and the catch-phrase of slogan for the Original range of toffee bars.
~ ~ What's inside ~ ~
Inside you'll find one large piece of toffee which is separated into 10 smaller blocks. The slogan of Walkers Nonsuch is "Whack, unwrap and enjoy", which kind of suggests that that is what your meant to do. Unfortunately I didn't manage to read that before unwrapping it and nearly tearing my teeth out trying to separate the blocks. The first bar that I bought had obviously already slightly melted and re-set which is why I managed to pick this up slightly cheaper than I would have done normally. I would advise handling the toffee as little as possible because it melts very quickly on your hands leaving them VERY sticky!
~ ~ Tastes ~ ~
The first time I tasted Non-Such Toffee I loved it, it still doesn't disappoint. The toffee is said to be "England's Finest Toffee", which I agree with and it really does deserve. The original toffee bar is very creamy and sweet, just how I like it. The toffee tastes amazingly good once you've managed to separate it from the rest of the block, unless you try and eat the whole thing in one bite, I wouldn't advise it. It has a very distinct and strong Toffee flavour being much stronger than a lot of other types of toffee which I have tried. This is what you might call, the real thing. It does contain a lot of sugar as most treats like this do, I'm not saying that it is good for you but it is extremely tasty.
~ ~ Disadvantage ~ ~
I didn't manage to read the "Whack, Unwrap and Enjoy" until after I had opened my second bar. This was a very bad mistake. On my first bar I tried snapping it which didn't work, I then tried scissors with it, which didn't work and then tried biting it which nearly ripped my teeth out. In the end I found the best solution was to "Whack" it on hard surface which shattered it. I would advise that you do Whack it before unwrapping it because it does go everywhere!
~ ~ What happened to me ~ ~
I have tried some of the other Nonsuch range before, the bagged sweets but never have I seen this type of bar before. I picked my first bar up a few weeks back at a local Home Bargains store. I picked it up for the cheap price of 50p for a 100g bar of top quality toffee, it wasn't bad. One of the reasons that I saw that it was so cheap was that the toffee had already slightly melted and re-set, which had no effect on the taste. Home Bargains probably bought these up very cheap as Misfits or damaged stock, but still it was a very good offer and was substantially reduced. After eating the bar, I went in next time I passed to find that they had run out. Hoping to find information on where else I could buy this, I visited the website at (www.walkers-nonsuch.co.uk) it was there that I found the competition giving away 50 bars of the toffee which I had just bought, every week. (More on the competition later). To my delight a week ago I received a bar of the toffee through the post and it was gone within the hour! Next time I see one of these I will definitely splash out to buy one, such an amazing taste.

What everyone has been waiting for. Simply go to this website, the official Walkers Nonsuch website (http://www.walkers-nonsuch.co.uk/) and click on the link on the left side of the page saying "Are you a fan of Walkers, click here to enter the competition", if this isn't there then I'm afraid that it is probably closed. Clicking on it will open a pop-up box for the competition, so if nothing happens make sure you turn off your pop-up blocker and try again. Fill in the information on the sheet and then click "Submit". They are giving away 50 bars of the Original Non-such Toffee every week and I received one myself. It tastes much better if it is free! Goodluck.
Walkers Nonsuch is a family run business which has been making toffee and only toffee for the past 100 years. They only use the finest of ingredients.
Thanks for taking your time to read and rate my review. I put a lot of work into my reviews and I hope that people have benefited from reading them. Thanks and Goodluck with the competition.
Summary: Whack, Unwrap and then Enjoy!
