Snickers ranks among the very best loved and most popular chocolate bars in Britain. According to a number of surveys Snickers ranks very highly among crazy choccie loving Britons and some surveys have seen it in the No I spot among chocolate - or Candy -bars.
Want still more confirmation of the huge popularity of this yummy chocolate bar ? Yes ! Well go down to your nearest supermarket or superstore. Take a peep at the point of purchase display at many of the check out counters. The chances are you will see rows of Snickers lined up in the display. The big supermarket multiples-who account for almost 90% of the trade in grocery lines- certainly know a good chocolate bar when they see one.
Snickers is manufactured by Masterfoods UK, which is part of the giant Mars group. It was Frank Mars back in 1930 that invented Snickers and this product is slold all over the world. It comes ina brown,chocolatey,wrapper with the word Snickers in blue against a white background trimmed with a thin red line. In essence Snickers has a nu base-roasted peanuts make up almost a quarter of the contents-in a lovely goey caramel centre all encased in delightful thick chocolate. Yummy ? You bet it is !
You will easily find Snickers in the supermarkets such as Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Somerfield, Safeway, and Waitrose,in the foodhall of Marks and Spencer and in most neigbourhood sweet shops. Cost ? Expect to pay around 30 pence for a 56 gr bar.
The ingredients,according to the wrapper on the Snickers I have just eaten,include : . Milk Chocolate . Sugar . Corn Mass . Cocoa Butter . Skim Milk Powder . Glucose Syrup . Milk Fat . Egg White . Water . Salt . Lactose Milk Fat , Peanuts (23%) . Emulsifier . Permitted Flavourings
Now for the bad news. Snickers unfortunately is not ideal for a few groups of people such as :
. diabetics . those on a slimming diet . those allergic to nuts . those with cavities in their teeth-the bits of peanuts seem to get into the cavities and cause a lot of irritation.
Still that leaves a lot of potential consumers.Now for a little tip from this old and wise choccy lover. Once you’ve bought yourself a Snickers bar try to resist the temptation to devour it before you get home. Of course I know it is difficult to resist a sly nibble or munch or two. Be firm with yourself go home and place your choccy bar in the butter compartment of the fridge for a short while. Chill it ever so slightly. The end result-near perfection and your Snickers will last a teeny bit longer.
The final verdict on Snickers ? A mighty fine ,yummy, nutty, moorish chocolate bar that gives you a nice energy boost and is good value for money. A breeze to find and a breeze to eat. This product from Mars comes highly,highly,recommended from this reviewer.Five stars out offive is my score !
Take a regular, standard Snickers bar, add a touch of confectionery magic and a layer of ... more
creamy peanut butter and increase its deliciousness factor infinitely. Genius. This is a truly indulgent candy and a recent Snickers offering from the confectionery giant, Mars Incorporated. The named 'squared' comes from the fact it is less so a bar than two separate, indulgent squares. Being split into 2 square pieces, it allows you to eat one whilst saving the rest for later. Alternatively, you could share the bar with a friend, relative or loved one. Not so easy to share.... This classic American candy is absolutely divine and irresistible for peanut fans - a distinctive Mars USA chocolate casing around sweet, smooth caramel, a base layer of nougat, fresh roasted peanuts and a thick layer of rich peanut butter. Each square weighs roughly 25g each. Buy just one US Snickers Peanut Butter Squared or get involved in some serious indulgence and buy a pack of 24, that's 48 squares...
