January 12th: Midweek Mini Snickers 3x Chocolate

This weeks 'Midweek Mini' is another new bar from the States and our friends at Mars. This Snickers 3x Chocolate was another that I spotted in Cybele's Candy Tease post back in November (See HERE). Similar to the Mars Triple Choc limited edition we got here in the UK in 2011 (See HERE), this Snickers bar came with the proposition of the golden caramel being swapped for a 'chocolate caramel' alternative. Add in the usual milk chocolate coating and chocolate nougat and you have yourself the new Snickers 3x Chocolate.

The package came devised in to two separate 45.0g bars that were nice to eat across separate sittings. I thought the wrapper looked good - I can't recall the blue being used before for a Snickers bar. When it came to bar aromas, all the usual gorgeous Snickers peanut scents were on offer, it was only the much darker coloured caramel that gave away the bar was a slightly different animal to the norm. So what did the chocolate caramel add to the experience? Well it had much the same effect as it did in the Mars Triple Choc UK bar. The chocolate intensity and emphasis was increased a notch, however the usual butterscotch and salty peanut contrast was of course lacking.

Overall this was a tasty chocolate bar, but just as I expected it didn't have the classic caramel version beat. Like so many limited editions (I'm assuming this is a limited edition btw!) It's one of those bars you will buy once, enjoy, yet just revert back to the original when the time comes again when you fancy a Snickers.
