Kcal 115 Fat 4.6g Fat(sats) 2.5g Carbs 18.0g
Having previously reviewed the Cadburys Curly Wurly Squrleys you may be asking yourself why I would write a review on the Curly Wurly...well they are packaged and presented differenly so why not :D
No suprise that in taste at least there is absolutely no discrepencies between the two products - I would even hazard a guess that the Curly Wurly Squrleys are off cuts of the Curly Wurly as they have absoluely no different in formula whatsoever - chewy caramel encased in Dairy Milk Chocolate...fair enough.
The only actual tangible differences in the two products are they way they are presented. The Curly Wurly is in a bar form of 26g whilst a bag of 'CWS' offers you are far more hunger fufilling 46g in small bite sized chunks. Personally I prefer the bar form and its certainly fun seeing how far you can stretch the caramel after each bite (come on I cant be the only one to do this!!).
Overall im left with the sense that theres no real need for both of these products to be on the market - and thats not even considering the Cadburys Chomp which is exactly the same product in a more boring shaped bar. In terms of flavours the Curly Wurly/Squrley is pleasent and whilst not being the most innovative or exciting is distinctive enough to merit some form of existance, just not in two different forms! A halfway house of a 40g bar of this would be great! If your after a fun looking, ok tasting snack you cant really go wrong - just dont expect this to be more than that.
