First up is this Peanut Butter bar from Wawel...that Polish company I'm not best friends with, since I've had a few duff chocolates from them in the past! Maybe they could woo me back with their peanut butter chocolate...?
Opening the wrapper I wasn't too excited...not only because of the melted chocolate, but because it had that distinctly "cheap" aroma that Wawel chocolate is known for. Still, I was hoping the peanut butter filling might save it.
Looking at the ingredients list didn't offer me much hope...the bar contains vegetable fat, sunflower oil and other nasties.
Biting into a piece, I was first met with the waxy chocolate...if it can be called chocolate. It tasted rather greasy and flavourless, I couldn't detect much cocoa at all. Luckily the peanut butter filling was much better - it had a nice salty, savoury flavour and was very moreish and creamy thanks to the vegetable fat. I didn't feel it was all that healthy though so didn't eat too much at once.
Overall, despite the poor quality chocolate this was still a tasty bar, but it doesn't compare to Reese's at all!
RATING: 7 out of 10.
Fin Carré Gianduja Milk Chocolate (Lidl):
I was surprised to find this bar was actually much tastier and better quality than the Wawel bar; the chocolate had a decent cocoa flavour and was very creamy, with the gianduja hazelnut giving it a deliciously moreish Nutella flavour!
Despite the fact it was all melted, I still scoffed it down pretty quickly! For cheap chocolate from Lidl it was pretty great quality, and far nicer than most cheap hazelnut milk chocolates I've tried.
RATING: 7.5 out of 10.
Thankyou as always to the lovely Bring Back Banjo Bar for sending me these chocolates - she always finds cool chocolates in Polish shops that I have never come across before! Please do take a moment to sign her petition to bring back the much-missed Banjo Wafer bar :)
