Flame Chocolate Wafer Bar & Bring Back Banjo Chocolate Bar!
A big thankyou to Bring Back Banjo Chocolate for kindly sending me this cool-looking wafer bar as part of a snacks package recently!
Please take a moment to sign the petition to bring back the Banjo Wafer that was made by Mars Foods in the 80's. If you remember Banjo bars please do leave a comment! If not (shame on you!) see HERE for an introduction. Basically they were wafer bars similar to Kitkat that contained a hazelnut cream filling and were coated with chopped peanuts. There was also a coconut version, which sounds right up my street! I think there's definitely room in the UK snacks market for a return of such a unique retro chocolate bar...are you listening, Mars?!
Moving on...this Flame wafer has a really cool-looking triangular shape and is filled with chocolate cream. It reminded me of Kitkat Chunky, although it's much thicker in size. The texture is different from a Kitkat Chunky though; it's lighter and puffier, kind of like the wafer you get in Nestle Blue Riband wafers. It was light and tasty and made for a nice snack with a cup of tea. Overall, I think these are a good bargain - I believe they're currently available at Poundland in multipacks of 5, which is great value for such a unique looking wafer bar!
A big thankyou to Bring Back Banjo Bar for sending me this as well as some other goodies....do stay tuned to find out what they are!
