Salted Caramel Honeycomb Bar (DegustaboxUK) By @SpectreUK

I don’t often have breakfast type bars. In fact I’m not actually going to eat it for breakfast, but pudding after my rather extensive packed lunch at work. I can’t particularly eat overly sweet things for breakfast like chocolate. I usually have some of a mini banana, mainly because our bananas often look sat on when they arrive from the shop. So I cut the bruises out whilst eating them, but also in the recent heat they’ve gone overripe too quickly. Too overripe a banana and I may feel a little off colour when eating it. However, I can eat a full English breakfast first thing in the morning, just not something too sweet… which doesn’t make much sense to me, but there you go!
This Salted Caramel Honeycomb Bar is made with honey covered in a caramel flavour and then coated with Belgian Milk Chocolate. If that’s not an over sweet combination, I can’t think of another. So I’m going to eat this Salted Caramel Honeycomb Bar, produced by Mighty Fine Kitchen, a little after lunch, when I usually have a chocolate bar to snack on.
From the smell of this Salted Caramel Honeycomb Bar on opening I immediately started to wish it was Friday (in order to thank it…), rather than Monday (on writing this blog), but I wish it was Friday every Monday (asides Bank Holidays), so not much difference there! This bar did taste like a high-end Crunchie Bar though. It was sweeter with a touch of caramel, even crunchier, and covered with the most luscious Belgian Milk Chocolate.
To me the wrapper makes this bar look and sound like a breakfast bar, but it’s definitely an all-day everyday kind of chocolate bar. From a Foodstuffs-fight point of view for sheer indulgence, luxury and less calories this Salted Caramel Honeycomb Bar would likely win, but for convenience, for the slightly bigger bar and the equally excellent quality Cadbury’s Milk Chocolate you may wish to still thank Crunchie it’s Friday!
