Hi, fellow candy lovers! I'm Allison from CandyDirect.com. Obsessivesweets has been kind enough to let me review the British chocolate bar called Double Decker.
The Double Decker candy bar has a nougat top layer and crispy cereal bottom layer, and it's covered in milk chocolate. Apparently it's made with coffee, but you would never know it when you eat it. The closest thing I can compare it to is a 100 Grand bar except instead of caramel, the Double Decker substitutes nougat.
The candy bar was a great size, and extremely filling. I ate it for lunch and didn't even think about eating again until about 4 or 5 hours later. The nougat was my favorite part because there was so much of it.
My only issue was the crispy cereal bottom. If it had been crispier and "popped" more, per say, it would have gotten a 5 in my book.

Potato chips and chocolate constitute a magical combination of flavors and textures- all of the sweet and creamy and crunchy and salty you could ever want in one bite. The Chuao Potato Chip Chocolate Bar blends all of these elements beautifully. I loved tasting that salty crunch in each bite. One issue I had not anticipated: potato chip oil. The additional oil from the potato chip does spread a bit across the bar resulting in vaguely oily chocolate. It wasn't like it tasted bad, but it's a little unnerving to eat chocolate and come away with oil on your hands like you've been eating a tub of lightly buttered popcorn. Overall, the bar is well worth a taste. However, I think that chocolate makers will have to wrestle with the oil element in crafting the perfect potato chip chocolate bar. I know it's possible- the dream remains alive!!
