Payne's Milk Chocolate Honeycomb (Pound World) By @Cinabar
I found these chocolates in Pound World and thought that I didn’t recognise the bag. I wasn’t sure if they were new, or just something made by Payne's that I hadn’t seen before. I picked them up and when I got home checked their website and couldn’t see them listed there at all. So I’m not actually any wiser as to whether or not they are new, as they have no new label, but they are new to me, which is good enough.
I opened up the bag and poured out the contents, the first thing to note is that there are a lot of chocolates in the bag, it really is quite a big portion. The chocolate also vary quite a bit in size, from large chunky pieces to small bits. This is contrast to Payne’s most famous confectionary, Poppets, where all are equal sizes.
The chocolates are a mix of toffee honeycomb and chocolate. The larger pieces seem to be several pieces of honeycomb stuck together with chocolat in-between and all around them. I liked the flavour, the honeycomb is pleasingly sweet and flavoursome and the chocolate is thick enough to add lots of cocoa flavour. Crunching through them is fun, and I enjoyed munching my way through my portion. I liked the mixed texture and the sweet rich honeycomb taste. These Payne's Milk Chocolate Honeycomb may have launched without much of a fanfare, but if you see them I recommend picking up a bag.
