Hunky, chunky chocolate is what you get with Nestle's Yorkie bar. Its a no frills confection, quite simply something to get your teeth into.

Unlike Cadbury's Dairy Milk and Mars Galaxy, Yorkie has a real chocolaty flavour to it. This is probably down in part to Nestle's continental heritage. In comparison Galaxy is overly sweet and CDM too milky.

Yorkie is available in three regular varieties, Milk, Biscuit and Raisen and Almond. There is currently a honeycomb variety as well. The standard size is 70g although King Size and Family Size.

Ive not seen the almond for a while yet. From memory the almond pieces were whole, although this may be a fond trick of the old grey cells.

The raisen and biscuit has always been more popular in general. The biscuit pieces are spherical in shape and satisfyingly crunchy. The raisens are typical raisen sized (nothing sultanay going on here). The combination works, although not everyone is keen on raisens (my wife for example).

Yorkie is chunky, and chocolatey and that's about it. Girls can certainly eat it dispite what the advertising gurus would have you believe. Just make sure it`s not mine.

The pieces are so thick that it's best not to chill it for too long else broken teeth may be the order of the day. I prefer to eat them at room temperature which certainly makes things just a little bit easier on the jaw.

My 70g bar cost me 40p from a high street newsagent and took me about ten minutes to savour every chunk. I could make it last even longer, but then I do have some self control.

Described as "chunky milk chocolate"

I haven't tried one of these in years. :-( Might buy one but then I'd feel like I was being watched 'cause I'm a girl, lol. Nightmoares- the cashier refuses to serve me
