Nestlé Big Turk - Canadian Turkish Delight Bar Review
The bar has a rather interesting curved shape, and is perfectly portioned to bite off into small chunks:
The wrapper advertises the fact that this bar contains 60% less fat than an average chocolate bar, although I'm not sure what they're comparing it to, and besides... "less fat" doesn't mean anything if it doesn't taste any good!
Taste-wise the milk chocolate coating is standard Nestlé milk chocolate - slightly milky but nothing amazing. The turkish delight filling, which as you can hopefully see from my pics has a bright pink colour, is very thick and chewy, with a vague hint of rose flavouring. It's very sweet, and tastes more like a hard gummy candy than turkish delight. It was far too chewy...I felt like I was like eating gummy bears coated in chocolate (not as nice as it sounds!)
Overall, as interesting as this bar is in appearance it let me down in taste. It's just far too chewy; if they had made the texture slightly softer and added a stronger turkish delight flavour I think I'd have enjoyed it a lot more. Still, it's an interesting novelty for sure and don't let me put you off trying one - I'm notoriously fussy!
RATING: 6.5 out of 10.
Do take a moment to check out The Canada Shop's range of groceries and snacks. They have a particularly nice looking selection of maple syrups, as well as various Cadbury and Nestlé bars we can't get here in the UK!
