Galaxy Honeycomb Crisp Review


It's not only Cadbury that have been busy releasing new products this year. Galaxy have also gotten in on the act and relaunched their chocolate range to include this new Honeycomb Crisp variety, as well as a Nut Crunch variety.

I found this large bar in Morrisons for £1.39 and it's described as "Smooth and creamy Galaxy chocolate with crispy honeycomb pieces". It comes in both small and large bars and bears the familiar Galaxy slogan "Why have cotton when you can have silk?"

The packaging has been updated slightly, and the chocolate comes in a fancy-looking gold paper wrapper:


The chocolate itself looks great and has the new "curvy" shaped blocks that Galaxy introduced a few years ago. It smelled delicious - there was a familiar milky Galaxy scent but with an added butterscotch aroma.


The chocolate tasted extremely creamy and smooth, as Galaxy chocolate is famous for. The honeycomb added an extra depth of deliciousness - it was butterscotch-like in flavour and had an almost salty edge to it, like "proper" honeycomb should have. I found it highly addictive - the combination of creamy Galaxy chocolate and crunchy honeycomb goes together perfectly, and made this bar feel like a real treat indeed.


To compare this to a similar bar I would say it's nicer than Cadbury Dairy Milk with Crunchie Bits, as the quality of the honeycomb is far superior and the chocolate is much smoother. Why have cotton when you can have silk indeed!


Overall, a superb new variety from Galaxy which I'm sure will be very popular - everyone should give this a try. And please, Mars/Galaxy UK - bring us more Galaxy chocolate varieties/limited editions in the future!

  1. Your always quick on the mark Kev! Is it a case of in the right place at the right time! Mars should give Cadbury a run for their money and release more new products to knock them of the lead. #TeamMars

    1. I just happened to see it in Morrisons and thought "ooh that's new!" :)
      I agree, Mars should try bringing out some new product varieties, if Cadbury can do it why not Mars?
