Long time ChocolateMission readers will be aware that the Nestle Toffee Crisp is one of our all time favourite UK mass produced chocolate bars. Since we first reviewed the original bar back in 2008 (See HERE) we seen many different Toffee Crisp spin-off products including Mini Bites and Clusters. To the surprise of no one in our team Nestle have now introduced the Toffee Crisp brand to their Sharing Block range - today we got to give it a try.

The Nestle Toffee Crisp Sharing Block comes in a 115.0g size that is split into five two block serving sizes. The wrapper is very distinctive with the bright orange Toffee Crisp branding clearly standing out on the shelf when placed next to some of the more conservatively coloured chocolate bar wrappers. Out of it's plastic packet confines the bar looked great with the filling very generously portioned with rice cereal and caramel and toffee filling all clearly visible.

Breaking the blocks apart the filling managed to avoid spilling out due to the sticky toffee sauce at the centre of each piece. The outer milk chocolate neither exceeded or failed to meet expectations. It was standard Nestle milk chocolate fair - sweet, milky but with enough cocoa flavours for a decent enough chocolatey flavour hit. The bar really came into it's own though with the filling which more than held it's end of the bargain. Flavours of toffee, butter, cereal and sugary caramel all came to the fore with gooey, crunchy textures all on offer. Compared to a standard bar a serving was as satisfying but those looking for more of a moderated Toffee Crisp experience should be left feeling content.

Overall we needn't say much more but confirm this Nestle Toffee Crisp Sharing Block gets a big @ChocMission thumbs up. As we noted above the bar isn't as substantial as a standard Toffee Crisp bar but if you are happy with the smaller serving size you will no doubt be left very happy with this bar here. Fans of Toffee Crisp you should definitely get involved with this sharing block bar. The only thing you might want to consider is whether you really want to be sharing it.
