Slo Poke (Candy Mail) By @SpectreUK

Slo Poke (Candy Mail)

I have to admit that when I was asked if I fancied a Slo Poke in the afternoon, I thought my luck was in. However, I think Cinabar just wanted to save her teeth from this Chewy Caramel Candy bar. I haven't been to the dentist for a while, so it may be worth a visit after this snack. There was some suggestion of sucking on a Slo Poke, but there were just too many euphemisms after that.

After reading "An American tradition for more than 80 years. Same great flavor, longer chew" on the packet, I worried a little more for my poor old teeth. To be honest with you, I wasn't sure I wanted to suck on a Slo Poke for an hour and a half. I think I'd prefer a Fast Poke.

On opening the packet you can see from the photograph that it was a fairly featureless flat blob of caramel. Taste wise it was slightly different. I decided to risk my teeth and instead bite and chew rather than suck on my Slo Poke. The chewy bar tasted pretty much exactly like slightly chewier fudge. It was sweet, sugary and gorgeous. So I rather enjoyed my Slo Poke in the afternoon after all.

In fact, I wouldn't mind a Slo Poke every afternoon, if one was on offer.

Information on the packet; The 43g bar had 180 calories, and at 100g it would have 418 calories, with 12g of fat, 47g of sugar, 2.3g of protein, and 0.76g of salt.
