Kraft Big 3Bit Hazelnut Bar
The 3Bit Bar was featured in a Choc It Out 10 Foreign Chocolate Bars video so I'm pleased to have finally managed to try one at last! These bars are often available in Polish import stores and are simple biscuit bars with a layer of cream filling coated in milk chocolate. Although I'm not sure why it's called 3 Bit since it comes in 5 bits!:
Polish stores are always a treasure trove of cool snacks as they seem to be a lot more adventurous than us Brits, so you'll always find plenty of interesting biscuits and wafer bars there that you never would in any UK supermarket - I'd highly recommend taking a look sometime! There's also a Pina Colada version of this 3Bit bar!
The bar was very tasty indeed - it's about half and half biscuit and cream filling, the biscuit being crunchy and almost shortbread like in consistency, whilst the hazelnut cream is milky and sweet. It's a tad artificial in flavour but still very nice. The milk chocolate is standard sweet and milky fare, but completes the bar perfectly.
Overall, this is a tasty treat and rather unique as biscuit bars go - I'm not sure I can think of anything similar on the UK market, and I'm surprised there's no similar biscuit/cream bars already widely available. Maybe it's next on Cadburys/Mondelez's list for a new Dairy Milk product... Dairy Milk 3Bit anyone? You heard it here first! ;)
Rating: 8 out of 10.
