Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Rice Krispies Squares Totally Chocolatey Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Rice Krispies Squares Totally Chocolatey
Posted: 17:18 Sat 07-Mar-2009. Price: Single 45p, Multipack 1.69. Nutritional unusualness: 138 Kcal, 5.0g Fat.
"Jim" reports: You may recall me being none to impressed with the caramel used to fuse the Caramel Chocolate version of these, thankfully this bar seemingly replaced this overly sugar-based tasting element with a more cocoa-based mix. This meant that the rice pieces actually had more of an impact, and allowed them to substantiate a sweet, yet slightly salted base element to the taste. Within the syrupy glaze that held the bar together, the chocolate flavouring could perhaps of been a little stronger, though this was helped to some degree by the chocolate chunks placed on top.

Again I would like to have seen these implemented a little more generously, though having now eaten a few of these bars I can confirm the amount does vary a little from product-to-product... you just need a little luck I guess. A 36.0g bar provided an adequate snack, and complimented both a light sandwich lunch and mid-afternoon tea well.

...Excerpted (with permission!) from "Jim's" review over on his site, which also features a competition to win a bar - though the closing date is currently 16th March, so don't hang around if you want one. In other chocolatey blogging: Foodstuff Finds has the lowdown on both Cadbury's Brunch Breaks and the confusingly similarly-named Brunch Bakes; Cadbury-owned Green and Black's are getting into Dairy Milk territory with a 30% cocoa Creamy Milk organic bar; and Kellogg's naming division aren't doing much better with their Nature's Pleasure baked mueslis or Live Bright Brain Health bars.

Comment: I tried these and thought they were good. I still prefer the Caramel ones though.

Comment: Definitely better than the caramel addition. I'm a little confused though, the spot where the original Rice Krispie Squares were kept have been replaced by these new chocolate ones. Slightly concering seeing as the original flavour is alot more enjoyable.
