New week - New product! That's how we like to do things here @ChocMission and what with the relentless amount of Limited Edition and NEW products hitting our UK shelves at the moment it's hardly a hard task finding something. Scoring the limelight this week we have a new Limited Edition product from our pals over at Nestle who recently have been adding new variants to several of their most long established brands. It was the age old Nestle Toffee Crisp scoring a new flavour this time with the Nestle Toffee Crisp Honeycomb.

We were sent this by one of Nestle's many PR companies however we've since been informed by our agents in the (all you lot reading this!!) that these are on sale in convenience stores throughout the UK. We believe it's being priced at £0.55 which is a pretty standard price for any bar weighing in around the 38.0g mark. The wrapper stood out to us immediately with it's yellow and orange stripes enough of a differentiator from the norm to give it decent on-shelf visibility.

Despite it weighing 38.0g most of us in the team thought it felt a little on the small side out the wrapper. This was a chocolate bar easily consumed within three bites, luckily it has to be said all three of these were pleasure filled to the maximum. Described on the wrapper as 'Toffee, honeycomb pieces and crisped cereal filled milk chocolate' it sounded like a good proposition and it was nice to see visible golden nuggets of honeycomb sitting under the plentiful toffee layer. Taste wise it was an absolute marvel. The usual sweet milk chocolate, buttery toffee and rice cereal elements were all still there but they were compounded nicely a sweet light touch of honey. It could have done being bigger but that gripe aside it went down extremely well.

Overall hopefully experiments like this will go to show Nestle that limited editions are worth doing if you make good ones! We've little doubt that 90% of all Toffee Crisp fans are going to love these new Nestle Toffee Crisp Honeycomb bars, in fact some of our team have already gone out to their local stores to stock pile a few in fear that they will disappear quicker than they have emerged. Although we are all fans of the original bar this has to go down as one of our surprises of the year thus far. If you are on the fence about trying to find of these bars to try we say go ahead and find one. Let us know what you thought of it @ChocMission.
