Recently, B&M have started selling a variety of peanutty chocolate bars, from the new Magnum Double Peanut Butter, to Cadbury Wunderbar, as well as Butterfinger Cups and various others. Most of them contain gluten so were off-limits to me, but I did spot this 6 pack of Nestle Baby Ruth that is gluten-free. Since I'm always game for a new peanutty snack I thought why not give them a try, at £1 for 6 bars they seemed a bit of a bargain! (Edit: I didn't realise that I've already reviewed the large version of Baby Ruth...oops! My memory is so bad!)
The 6 pack contains mini Baby Ruth bars; I didn't realize quite how small they would be until I opened the pack...they're a mere 18.4g per bar! They're described as "Bursting with peanuts, rich caramel and chewy nougat".
I have to say I wasn't very impressed. The caramel certainly wasn't "rich" like the description suggested, in fact it tasted of nothing, and I believe the chocolate coating was "fake chocolate", ie. a mixture of cocoa and vegetable fat. The nougat was sweet but tasteless, and the peanuts were ok, although not very fresh tasting.
All in all, these Baby Ruth bars were a huge disappointment. They're like a much inferior Snickers made with discounted ingredients...pretty awful really! If you're a fan of peanutty bars I'd recommend giving these a wide berth.
