So I bought a Kit Kat Chunky Coconut Edition yesterday, ignoring the warning at the till that I made a 'bad choice' and that the fudge special edition is better. So here's my 'review':

Rather than have some delicious coconut filling within the crispy wafer biscuit that lies underneath a smooth layer of chocolate, it's just a regular Kit Kat Chunky (good!) covered with coconut flavoured chocolate (bad!). Not that coconut is bad at all, but it's the fact it's coconut flavoured that takes the biscuit (no pun intended). It tastes like a Kit Kat has been dipped in coconut shampoo.

It's not bad per se, but it does leave the taste of coconut shampoo in your mouth, which could provide you with negative utility. You're better off buying a Bounty Bar. Or a horse burger.

62%

Pros:
It's an unhealthily delicious Kit Kat Chunky - those wafer biscuits melt in the mouth

Cons:
That Kit Kat Chunky is surrounded by coconut flavour chocolate.

Authentic Kit Kat Chunky - Dance /10.

The very IDEA of making a PEANUT BUTTER version, compounded with the fact that it BEAT WHITE CHOCOLATE in a contest - Duh! /10.

I love the original Kit Kat Chunky so I won't be going anywhere near that *shudder* coconut one. Brave man to try that one!

Now, Wispa Gold is a cracking little treat. Just as tasty as the regular one.

Just had a Special K Bliss: Chocolate & Orange cereal bar as part of my lunch.

Pros:

Good serving with generous helpings of orange
Delicous chocolate layer across the bottom
Only 90 calories
Flavoursome

Cons:

Went out of date on 25/12/12; didn't notice until after consumption.

59%

I feel this cereal bar needs a yearly update. Had this been the 2013 edition, it would have ranked at least 20% higher. Disappointing effort from the usually-reliable folks at Special K.

I've had a fair old chuckle at this thread so far. In fact, you've inspired me to march out and buy a random chocolate bar on Saturday for the purpose of reviewing.

This looks like a laugh. Laughing

Today I had a Euroshopper Milk Chocolate bar.

Pros:

    Pricing was excellent, only 50p

    Good size to money ratio, it was the size of a big bar of Dairy Milk

    It looked like chocolate


Cons:

    It didn't taste like chocolate

    It didn't smell like chocolate

    Honestly, I'm not even sure it was chocolate


Rating: 17%

Only good thing coming out of this mockolate experience was my wallet was still full after purchasing this. Avoid.

I could have a look at the fudge one, if sporky hasn't already. What other flavours are there?

Oh, and I've been a fan of the peanut butter one for a while now. *raises flame shield*

Jay: Another worthy review. Laughing

I'm with you Stu, peanut butter flavour is a good addition to the Kit Kat Chunkie family.

Peanut butter is one of those things that's grown on me in recent years. I used to loathe it as a child.

Right! I will re-purchase a Peanut Butter Kit Kat Chunky at the weekend so that the experience is fresh in my mind, and then I'll review it to within an inch of its wrapper.

I love Peanut Butter Kit Kats, probably my favourite chocolate bar right now. I think I might have to try the mint Kit Kat Chunky, seems promising.

I went to buy one of these today, but they stopped stocking them at my local! Will have to hunt one down next weekend.

I had a twix.

A twix, I remember them being a lot more popular, like mars bar popular. Did they have a decline or did I just randomly stop seeing them for a few years, maybe it's all in my head, who knows Tongue They seem to be more popular now again so I had one, and it's not quite how I remember, drier and the caramel isn't that great, so I'm putting it somewhere around the 30s/100.

32 maybe, yeah that's about right.

I'm firmly in the anti-peanut butter camp, so a peanut butter kit-kat sounds awful Sick , well I say that, but I must not have eaten it in over a decade, peanut butter that is, I've got some kit-kats in the freezer (seems to make them taste nicer, and I'll credit that to whoever it was that told me on CVG, sorry can't remember who Duh! )

Mattessons Fridge Raiders - Roast Flavour



Pros:

Meat! In a poke!
Ready to eat
'New, improved recipe'
Good portion
Good source of protein
'100% Seasoned Chicken Breast'...

Cons:

...Ingredients list/nutritional information actually says 'Chicken Breast (91%)'
Smells guff
Gets stuck in your teeth something chronic

80%

I like the idea, and the chicken pieces are tasty enough. Recommended.

YES! Those are the King of snacks, southern fried ones are the best.

I still have Twixes from time to time. They are fairly disappointing every time, but better than Mars Bars.

Twix bars? Mars bars? Good heavens.

Go Ahead! Chocolate Thins - Strawberry





Pros:

Double pack
Only 72 calories per slice
Milk chocolate topping an light wafer biscuit a winning combo
Strawberry puree and Sultana filling at a good balance

Cons:

Not that filling
Surely not that healthy despite being part of the Go Ahead! brand

75%

I'd definitely have one of these again, but I'm not convinced about their value as part of the Go Ahead! range. Only a pound for five in Tesco at the moment though.

Belgian Frangipanes (from Iceland, or Farm Foods or somewhere that sells cheap cakes, I can't be sure)

+

Moreish
Taste like Mr Kipling's Bakewell Slices
Clear packaging through which to see the deliciousness
Doesn't taste of lemons, despite saying so
Inexpensive (1 for four!)


-

Contains lemon. Lemon is rubbish
Packet isn't easy to reseal, may go stale
There aren't enough in the world to eat
Only four per pack


93%

Overlook the fact that eating loads of them will make you fat, everyone should eat at least four twelve of these.

Every so often I think, "F*** it, I'll have a Double Decker". Today, I did just that.

The Double Decker is one of those bars that is almost too busy for its own good. The chocolate encases nougat and a "crunchy cereal bottom", which makes it sound unappealing. It's not, but equally it's not a bar I could have all the time. Anyway!

Pros:
Many components ensure variety between bars
Not as madly high on fat content as it could be (15.7% of daily recommended dose)
Cadbury's chocolate always satisfies

Cons:
Many components ensure lack of consistency between bars
A bit too big

Tesco Everyday Value Chocolate Chip Cake Bars



BESPOKE PHOTOGRAPHY, GRACKLAAAAAZ

PROS:
Actual Chocolate
Bars are not only individually wrapped, but the individual wrappers are individually sell-by-dated.
Value for money

CONS:
Might be a bit sweet for some

I'll be honest, I opened these with low expectations, and actually had them exceeded. They're an appropriately sweet cakey mush with chocolate chips in. Not high cake art, but decent enough. 86%.

50p for a box of five, Tesco.
