SNACK OF THE WEEK ..... a new part of '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' which will feature any manner of snacking product I have been products munching on in the week

Oreo Chocolate Bar Chestnut
Kcal ??? Fat ??? Carbs ???

It was my intention to bring you some kind of Guy Fawkes/Bonfire night themed post today but the snack I had in mind turned out to be a little dreadful and not one I wanted to promote as Snack of the Week. Luckily my pals at J-List sent over some of their latest chocolatey snacks and sweets. For the third time this week we have yet another return for an old Chocolate Mission friend.

With so many bits and pieces in the package received I didn't have a clue where to start with it all, but I eventually chose this chestnut flavours Oreo Chocolate Bar. My longer term readers may remember me reviewing a number of different flavours from this range before - Original/Strawberry (See HERE), Green Tea (See HERE), Dark (See HERE) and Coffee Caramel (See HERE). This Chestnut flavoured variety provided much the same experience as many of those did and combined a milky sweet chocolate offering with small bits of lovely, crunchy Oreo biscuit dispersed throughout. The enhancing chestnut element was disappointingly incorporated as a flavouring rather than in nut pieces, however with that said the creamy, buttery yet savoury nuttyness it brought to the party stretched the basic flavour depth of the chocolate and came across as a welcome praline type influence. This bar wasn't the best of the Oreo Chocolate Bar range I have tried, but it proved itself to be a very welcome addition to a mid-afternoon coffee and was in a handy shape for dunking action :D Oreo fans will no doubt enjoy this bar.
