Since reviewing the new Honeycomb Crisp bar from Galaxy I've been on the hunt for this new Nut Crunch variety too. It's a bit harder to find and most stores don't stock it yet, but by chance I spotted one in my local WH Smith amongst the rest of Galaxy's newly-updated range.
Like the Honeycomb Crisp, it comes in the new sleeker style packaging design, and is wrapped in a shiny paper foil wrapper. It's described as "Milk chocolate with almond (4.8%) and hazelnut (4.9%) pieces".
Opening the wrapper revealed lots of nuts embedded within the chocolate:
It smelled very sweet and creamy but with an extra hint of nuttiness.
Taste-wise, it did what it said on the tin really - it was nutty and very crunchy. The nuts were moreish and tasty, with an almost caramelized burnt sugar edge to them. I found myself nibbling on the chocolate slowly so I could savour the taste - they were so nice! The chocolate was very sweet, but with the smooth and creamy texture that Galaxy is known for. I enjoyed this bar even more than the Honeycomb Crisp variety, as the savoury flavour of the nuts tempered the sweetness of the chocolate somewhat.
Overall, this is a deliciously tasty, moreish bar of chocolate that works surprisingly well. If you like nuts then I'd highly recommend giving it a try!
Price: £1 at WH Smith.
