Mr Tom Peanut Chocolate Bar
If you like peanuts and chocolate, this is the bar for you! I found this Mr Tom Chocolate bar in Poundland recently for the price of...you guessed it.
It's described as "Milk chocolate with 35% caramelized and roasted peanuts", contains 30% cocoa solids and is made by the company Hosta who also produce the original Mr Tom peanut bar.
I remember this being reviewed on Jim's Chocolate Mission ages ago and thought it would be one of those foreign chocolate bars I'd never get to try, so I was very pleased to see it in Poundland! It's also been reviewed here by Foodstuff Finds, and it didn't fare too well with them.
The bar is a nice thick block and you can hopefully see here that there's plenty of nuts embedded in the chocolate (they make up 35% of the bar infact).
The chocolate is quite sweet, as mentioned by Foodstuff Finds, but I thought it was nice. I've had far, far worse in my time that's for sure. It's the caramelized and roasted peanuts that really bring it to life though: they're crunchy, salty, sweet and moreish! There seemed to be a mix of plain roasted chopped peanuts, as well as shards of sweeter caramelized peanuts. It's a simple combination, but it worked well and was very tasty. It didn't take me long to munch through the whole bar to myself.
Overall, a tasty chocolate bar which I would highly recommend if you like peanuts and chocolate. For £1 this is a bargain and I'll certainly be buying some more next time I'm in Poundland!
