Eat The Treat
Attempting to eat one of each kind of treat…

The Milky Wafer is a treat I found in Poundstretcher. It is, by far, the longest snack I’ve eaten to date. At 25cm, it’s HUGE! In fact, it’s the same length as two of my Chocolate Nemesis bars combined. It wouldn’t surprise me if police often use them to control rioting crowds. It is crispy […]

Galaxy Minstrels, from my Easter Egg. They are great. They are UFO shaped galaxy chocolate buttons, covered in a crispy shell. You get around 20 in a pack, which is a perfect amount. In the 80s the tagline for Minstrels was “They melt in your mouth, not in your hand.”. In the early 90s, Minstrels […]

The Daim bar, from Kraft. I used to really like these, when they were called Dime bars. Back in the day, they were quite exciting. They were a new, crunchy, chocolate-coated bar of excitement. They were advertised on telly by Harry Enfield and an armadillo. But I went off them. I precisely can’t remember why. […]

It’s a massive rattling, rabbit-faced bauble. If you like mini smarties, and who doesn’t, then you’ll love the Smartie Bunny. Think of it like a hollow chocolate egg filled with mini smarties. Actually, when I say filled, I mean containing 14 of the worlds smallest smarties. When I was young I used to like eating […]

The Flyte is ok, I suppose… It’s basically a thin Milky Way which, amazingly, is also made by Mars. It has a reputation for being diet chocolate. It tastes like normal chocolate but isn’t as fattening. I don’t understand things like diet chocolate. They make as much sense to me as caffeine-free coffee, or alcohol-free […]

My first Easter-related treat! These are great for nibbling on. Crunchy, sweet, very chocolatey and with 16 eggs in the tub it’s just the right size. Any more than 16 would have made them a bit sickly. I do like nibbly food in tubes. I like them because when you get bored of reaching into […]

The Milkybar Raisin and Biscuit. It combines two of my favourite things; Milkybar and biscuit. Judging by this site, you can probably guess that I don’t eat that much fruit. I don’t mind raisins, but prefer chocolate coated ones. It’s quite a creamy chocolate, as Milkybar usually is, and you get an adequate amount of […]

The Kinder Bueno is a relative newcomer to the chocolate scene. It’s a little weird. Firstly, it’s one of the only chocolate bars that has inner wrapping. You open the pack, and… So near, yet so far. So, having finally reached chocolate… It’s a little too heavy on filling for me. I’d say it’s around […]

I’m not sure what Caramac actually tastes like. I mean, it’s good, but what is it? It isn’t a chocolate bar as it doesn’t contain coacoa. It isn’t strictly caramel because it’s solid. Whatever it is, it’s great. It’s creamy and yum, and quite unique. It took around 3 minutes to slowly eat, and I […]

I don’t like peanuts, so I wasn’t looking forward to eating this. I have to admit it; even though the Starbar contains nuts, it isn’t all that bad. It has that indirect nut taste. The one where you can’t taste them when you’re chewing, but you can taste it as you breathe out after eating […]

Awwww! Ickle lamb! This is basically a smaller than usual Aero, shaped like a lamb. No frills, no bells and whistles, just a smiling chocolate lamb. At least, it WAS smiling until I bit it’s head. Then it began to frown. Overall it’s a great novelty-shaped item, but it wasn’t big enough to satisfy the […]

Kinder Eggs are amazing! I’ve listed the Kinder Egg as a bar, not a packet, because you only get one. I always think a packet of sweets would provide you with more than one sweet, and obviously only one egg is supplied. Kinder chocolate is amazing. It’s a lovely combination of milk and White chocolate. […]

The Galaxy Ripple is a thing of beauty. It is a thin, (but by no means disappointingly thin,) bar of chocolate. I suppose the best description would be to liken it to a flake in a chocolate case. It’s so silky, so tasty and so smooth that it really is luxorious. In fact, the above […]

This isn’t a runny caramel, as you would normally think of caramel, but a soft paste that tastes like mild coffee. Not a bitter Starbucks coffee, or a good quality Douwe Egberts coffee, but a cup of Mellow Birds coffee. Without chickory. As I’ve mentioned previously, a good chocolate bar should take no more than […]

Chewy, wafery and chocolatey… Yes, it’s the amazing Drifter. In my youth, the Drifter was my favourite chocolate bar. I didn’t used to like Twix’s as much as I do nowadays, and tended to prefer the chocolatey, chewiness of a Drifter. In my earlier days the Twix was too biscuity for me, and the Drifter […]

My wife asked if I’d like anything from the local shop. I asked if she could get me “something chocolatey.”. She didn’t disappoint! The Aero Caramel is a lovely, smooth delight. It’s the width of a tube of smarties, and has alternating layers of bubbles and caramel. Absolutely delicious, and my only complaint is it […]

Today’s breakfast was a Twix Fino. What a bizarre chocolate bar. I love Twix, so when I saw the Twix Fino I imagined it to be like a Twix, but BETTER! Having eaten one, the best way to describe it is… you know that mate you’ve had for years who you’re really matey with? Well […]

I thought I’d start the challenge by eating one of my all time favourite bars, the Nestle Toffee Crisp. I ate this one for breakfast. (When I originally emailed companies to ask for freebies, Nestle and Mars were the first two to reply. Almost 3 weeks later I’m still waiting for Cadburys to even acknowledge […]
