OFFICIAL NAME OF SNACK:
WEIGHT: 1.5 oz.
DESCRIPTION OF SNACK:
SNACK LOOKS LIKE:
SSI RATING (SNACK SATISFACTION INDEX - 1-10): 4
Chocolate and nougat are first-rate.
Here's the deal. This is nothing more than a 3 Musketeers bar with half the nougat. (Or the same amount of nougat, only half as whipped.) There's nothing wrong with the way this candy bar tastes, but why would you buy it when you get twice the satisfaction from a similarly priced candy bar that's been on the market far longer than the Yoohoo? Also, worth noting, nougat that isn't whipped enough (Yoohoo bar) comes off tasting like grainy fudge. Do yourself a favor and get a 3 Musketeers.
1ST 4 INGREDIENTS:
Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils
LAST 4 INGREDIENTS:
Vitamin A Palmitate
Synergistic. If you've had Yoohoo chocolate milk, you're going to recognize this candy bar. But school bus yellow, at least to me, doesn't lend itself to a candy bar wrapper. I just couldn't take this candy bar seriously, even before I opened it. Oh, and I dislike the "50% LESS FAT" call-out. The black writing underneath it says, "Than Leading Chocolate Brands." Yeah, well, while that's true, it's because Yoohoo is comparing itself to Snickers, Milky Way and others that consist largely of caramel, peanuts and thick chocolate. It's not as if Yoohoo has discovered a low fat chocolate bar. They just sell one that consists mostly of nougat. And while I have yet to meet anyone who can tell me what exactly nougat consists of, everyone knows nougat is lower in fat than peanuts and caramel.
DO I RECOMMEND YOU TRY THIS YOURSELF? (YES/NO - EXPLAIN):
Yes, if you don't believe a word I've said so far. Otherwise, get yourself a 3 Musketeers.
WHICH SOUTH PARK CHARACTER WOULD LIKE IT BEST?
HOW CAN THIS PRODUCT BE IMPROVED?
They've come this far, why not rip off 3 Musketeers completely? And then co-op with Yahoo! for some big "I Yahoo! for Yoohoo!" sweepstakes promotion.
IN THREE WORDS OR LESS, SUMMARIZE YOUR EXPERIENCE:
Once is enough.
