Snickers Dark Chocolate (American version) Review
Earlier in the year I reviewed a Polish version of Snickers Dark. I wasn't too impressed with that bar, so I was a little skeptical when I received this American version from Monster Sweets to review recently. Would it be an improvement on the Polish version? Well yes, luckily it was!
The bar weighs in at 51.9g (such a weird amount...why couldn't they just make it 60g?) and comes in a funky dark purple wrapper. It really stands out compared to a regular Snickers wrapper although you'd be forgiven for thinking it was some kind of berry flavoured Snickers (now there's an idea!) It's described by Mars as "Just like Snickers Original, but with a higher percentage of cocoa".
Unwrapping it revealed a pretty regular looking Snickers. It didn't look much different from a UK milk chocolate Snickers although it was perhaps a tad darker in colour.
Luckily the dark chocolate was very noticeable in the taste and the bar tasted much richer than the milk chocolate version. It tempers the overall sweetness of the bar somewhat, and the combination of chewy nougat, sweet caramel and crunchy peanuts is as tasty as ever, and dare I say it this bar tastes even better than the original!
Overall, this is a great Snickers bar and an improvement on the regular version in my opinion. Whether or not you like it though will depend on your preferences for richer or sweeter chocolates.
RATING: 8 out of 10.
Snickers Dark is available from Monster Sweets Online Store, along with many other American snacks goodies!
