Back in September/November I reviewed the Harry & David Moose Munch Bars, both of which are favourites of Liz's at *IShop4YouII*. Well after my positive reviews of the bars Liz was kind enough to send me this fantastic product in my latest package. The Harry & David Moose Munch Confection Dark Chocolate consisted of caramel coated popcorn and whole nuts pieces. Additionally some of these pieces were coated in Harry & David dark chocolate ... it sounded fantastic to me!

Liz sent me a 127.0g box that as I will unwittingly explain lasted me all of 20 minutes (for shame!!). The product was well presented and came in a smart looking cardboard box that incorporated the usual Harry & David type branding and fun illustratives. I liked the fact the box had a cut out window so the product could be visually seen. The confection mix not only looked appetising, but also smelt fantastic too. I was greeted with a vast array of sweet toffee and nut aromas as soon as I opened the plastic packet.

One would assume that since the product came in such a large box it was meant for sharing. As mentioned though I managed to eat my way through the entire lot in 20 minutes ... it was just so ridiculously moreish. Every single piece within the mix was coated in a simply delightful caramel coating - it wasn't like the cheap tasting sugar coated popcorn you can get - but more sophisticated in its buttery, sweet toffee like flavours. In and amongst the popcorn were some delicious tasting pecan and cashew nuts that were simply bursting with fresh salty nutty flavours. What made the mix truly excellent though were the dark chocolate covered pieces. The unsweetened cocoa added an extra degree of interest with the salt of the nuts and sweetness of the caramel providing spot on contrasts. The only major error I could find with this product was the lack of fulfilment it provided me - 660 odd calories later and I was still wanting more!

Overall as you will have gathered from this review this was a product that I simply couldn't get enough of. I found the mixture of the popcorn, caramel, nuts and dark chocolate simply superb ... it was a truly fantastic snacking product. I wouldn't necessarily recommend these as a product to eat by yourself, though for snacking occasions with friends I honestly can't think of many other products that would do you any better. If popcorn is your thing, these are a must try!
