I have been going to the cinema rather a lot recently so I was pretty grateful when CandyPirate sent across the whole range of Taste of Nature's Cookie Dough Bites. Today I saw 'The Hangover' and decided to munch down on these Fudge Brownie Bites. I must say the film was pretty damn hilarious but I guess you guys are less interested in my film reviewing skills and more wondering what I thought of these 'fudge brownie flavoured cookie dough bites covered in milk chocolate' ... well without further ado let me reveal all.

The product came in a 88.0g box that contained dozens of large bean sized pieces. I thought the outer packaging did a nice job and looked welcoming with its bright colours and appetising pictures though I was a little less impressed with the contents inside. The description on box suggested that the contents be eaten in two servings but failed to split these out with the whole lot contained in a single plastic packet. Aesthetically the pieces didn't appear to look anything too special, however they were noticeably darker inside when compared to the Chocolate Chip variant which I previously reviewed. I was a little bit disappointed by the nature of the plastic packet but I still detected a reasonably enticing sweet, chocolaty smell when I opened it.

Of being in the cinema environment I had to share these with some friends so it didn't take long for them all to be eaten. Despite this I still got a fair share of handfuls and was reasonably impressed from what I tasted. The taste was instantly familiar to the Chocolate Chip variant I previously reviewed but on the whole these Fudge Brownie ones seemed to provide just a little something more to the experience on the whole. The milk chocolate that coated the pieces was pretty unremarkable and altogether provided little more than a basic chocolaty taste to each mouthful. The melt of the chocolate was a little waxy and laboured though I guess this was emphasised by the expected rougher, grittier texture of the cookie dough below. The cookie dough innards were sugary though had elements of wheat, syrup and burnt fudge notes providing a bit of variety to the sugar laden taste. As I said I shared these so I most likely got around a third of a packet. In all fairness I thought they were reasonably fulfilling and found them surprisingly rich for such small pieces.

Overall these were not one of the most remarkable products I have reviewed on ChocolateMission though I still thought they did rather nicely as a snack for a cinema visit. These Fudge Brownie bites just had a little more in the taste department than the Chocolate Chips equivalents which is why I have rated them slightly higher. These were quite a sugary product so if you are adverse to sweet chocolate you might just want to look somewhere else for your cinema snacks. Taste of Nature have put together a wide range of variants in this range including Mint, Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate. Those reviews are all coming soon so be sure to keep an eye out for them.
