A big thankyou to Bring Back Banjo Chocolate Bar for sending me this Tunnock's Caramel Log as part of a cool snacks package recently...stay tuned for more, and in the meantime please sign her Petition to bring back the awesome Banjo Wafer Bar!
I was a big fan of Tunnock's Coconut Snowballs as a kid, but oddly I've never tried any of their other products. I know they have a lot of history and a strong fan-base, though, so was very curious to see what this Caramel Log Wafer would be like. Although the packaging is rather retro and plain, opening it up revealed a rather cool-looking wafer bar that somewhat resembles the Hershey's Zagnut:
It's described as a "Roasted Coconut Covered Caramel Wafer Biscuit" which sounded like the perfect combination to me - coconut and caramel? I couldn't wait to get stuck in!
Cutting it open revealed a thick caramel wafer, which smelled sweet and coconutty. Biting into a piece I was met with dense wafer with the chewy, buttery caramel sandwiched in-between. The wafer was quite wheaty and almost like a waffle rather than a wafer. The toasted coconut added a lovely edge that made it very moreish. The combination of all three elements worked together perfectly!
Overall, although I wasn't expecting much from this wafer it really surprised me and is a delicious bar indeed - I'll definitely be buying these in future!
Many thanks to Bring Back Banjo for sending me this bar, please sign the petition here to bring back Banjo chocolate bars - every bit of support helps!
