Ooooh, something from Cadbury that I haven’t tried before!
I’ve only ever seen Chomp in those Christmas variety packs that Cadbury like to push on children all over the country. And that’s exactly where this came from – part of an even bigger box of chocs that The Chocstress sent me.
Chomp is a very small bar. The wrapper doesn’t actually give the weight (presumably, being part of a bigger selection pack it doesn’t need to), but it’s actually 23g.
Of course, the question you’re all asking now is “What is Chomp!?”. Luckily, the answer is simple:
It’s a Curly Wurly without the Curly or the Wurly.
Take the thick, chewy caramel and milk chocolate from a Curly Wurly and squeeze it into a more conventional shape, and that’s Chomp. It’s very simple and very yummy. And despite coming in a tiny package, it’s actually just about the same weight as a modern Curly Wurly.
So, it’s nice. It’s chocolatey and chewy… but it just doesn’t appeal to me in the same way that Curly Wurly does. There’s something pointlessly, stupidly, childishly brilliant about the shape of a Curly Wurly. Chomp may have compactness on it’s side, but it’s just not the same.
