OFFICIAL NAME OF SNACK:
DESCRIPTION OF SNACK:
SSI RATING (SNACK SATISFACTION INDEX - 1-10): 6
UPSIDE: It's good, quality chocolate. And thickness of chocolate bar provides for a satisfying snack experience.
DOWNSIDE: Um, boring?
First 4 ingredients:
So what's up with the "It's not for Girls" tagline on the side of the package? Here's an unbiased look at the campaign from a UK blog post on the topic. Personally, if they made this candy bar a bit more unique and tasty, I'd say "It's not for anyone but me." But in its current state I'd be happy to share it with a girl, a boy, or even a Yorkshire terrier.
DO YOU RECOMMEND THIS SNACK? (YES/NO - EXPLAIN):
Honestly, not really. There's not a thing wrong with this candy bar, and it's a strong alternative to a Hershey bar here in the States (if you're hankering for thicker, richer chocolate). But it feels more gimmicky than a candy bar ought to... just not worth all the advertising and marketing effort that appears to have gone into shaping this simple candy bar to appeal to men.
WHAT ARE TWO ALTERNATIVE NAMES THIS CANDY BAR COULD BE CALLED?
