Yesterday, while I was out and about I ended up popping into the little café to the side of Slough railway station for a bottle of water, and as I paid, I saw one of these little beauties eyeing me up on the counter:
It's a Limited Edition Mars Caramel. Less thick, and possibly shorter than its original form (I didn't measure it though so I might be wrong), it promised '100% Mars Caramel'. I was curious, so I bought one to try.
I don't know how they've done it, but although the nougat part inside the Mars bar was completely missing and the inside was all caramel, it did have the initial flavour of a Mars Bar. The caramel centre is quite stiff, not the soft gooey caramel you get in, say a Galaxy Caramel, and the chocolate on the outside is still quite thick. But for me, it was all too rich, sweet and sticky. Next time, I'd just get a regular Mars Bar. And, anyway I quite like the nougatty, chewy part in the original.
If you see one on sale and you fancy trying it, have a taste and come to your own conclusion. Let me know what you think of it in the comments box below. Have you tried one? Did you like it?
