Crunchy Nut Chocolate Peanut Crisp Bar (Superdrug)
Guess what caught my eye? It was the keyword in the title ‘peanut’ especially as it was so near my other favourite keyword ‘chocolate’. I’m sure you can imagine just how keen I was to try this bar.
When it came to it though, it didn’t meet my expectations. The whole point of a cereal bar, especially with peanuts in it is to have some crunch, but the honey glaze coating seemed to mute this. It did have good texture from the oats, crispies and nuts, but that distinct crunch was missing. Also the appealing concept of peanut and chocolate was disappointing as I felt the bar needed more chocolate. I know I have a sweet tooth, but really all the other flavours didn’t do it justice at all. There was just a lightly dipped base, but perhaps if it had been dark chocolate the cocoa would have come through more. Other than that the honey and nut flavours worked well together.
The bar is by no means bad, but it has so much potential with all those wonderful flavours that I felt it just missed the mark. Anyone else tried this? What did you think?
