Snickers & Hazelnut

I remember this Snickers & Hazelnut bar being out quite a while ago but I never got around to trying it; odd since I'm a massive lover of hazelnuts! Anyway when I saw it on shelves this time round I knew I definitely had to give it a go.

Opening it up and even feeling it in the packaging it felt a lot smaller to me than Snickers used to be - does anyone else feel this?! Anyway the Snickers & Hazelnut is pretty much just like a regular Snickers albeit hazelnuts are included in the top caramel section with the peanuts; however peanuts make up 17% of the bar, whilst hazelnuts only occupy a measly 5.6%! Not very "hazelnutty" if you ask me - personally I think it would have been good if they'd flavoured the nougat of hazelnut as well.

Anyway cutting a cross section of the bar you can see that there's still a good amount of nuts in the top layer of the bar (ahem..peanuts..ahem) and I was worried that you wouldn't be able to detect much of the hazelnut flavour.

Thankfully the hazelnut flavour still makes it way through the bar, albeit subtly, but it does make a nice change from the standard Snickers bar and I would probably buy it over the regular version as I feel it adds something additional to the range - unlike the Aero Mousse bar that was reviewing previously!

Nevertheless to call this 'hazelnut' I really think it needs to pack more of a hazelnut flavour punch - more hazelnuts? Hazelnut flavoured nougat? Who knows but with hazelnuts only making up 5.6% of the 49g bar this only equates to ~3g!!

Taste - 7.2/10 - Not bad, still tasty, but would definitely have liked a lot more hazelnut flavour.
Texture - 8.2/10 - The usual chewy, crunchy, satisfying Snickers texture.
Appearance - 7.1/10 - Just looks like a standard Snickers bar really, nothing out of the ordinary.
Price- 7.5/10 - Affordable enough, can range from 40-65p depending on where you purchase it from.
Overall - 7.5/10 - A nice change from the regular Snickers bar.
Snickers lovers!
