Cadbury Time Out (redux)

Posted by in Chocolate Reviews on November 15 2006 | Leave A Comment

Chocstress has already given her opinion of Time Out, but as I happen to have one myself, I thought I might as well give my opinion too!

Time Out has been around since 1992, but I don’t think I’ve ever been tempted by it before, so I didn’t really know what to expect.

But it only took one bite to figure out what this bar was: Twirl with wafers.

More precisely, it’s two thin bars consisting of a very thin layer of “folded” chocolate reminiscent of Twirl or Flake, sandwiched between two equally thin wafers and covered in an even thinner layer of milk chocolate.

So it’s thin then.

I’m guessing this is aimed at the busy working woman who doesn’t want to get fat by eating a heavy chocolate bar, but just wants a quick snack between typing up reports for her evil slave driving, misogynistic boss. But that’s just a guess, and I’m often wrong about these things.

Needless to say I wasn’t entirely satisfied by Time Out, but I didn’t really want more either. Although it was nice enough, I just found myself wanting something a little more substantial.

I’m also slightly peeved at the profusion of similar bars on the market at the moment. I’m getting a little bored of the old “two fingers of milk chocolate with some wafer” formula.

    I personally really enjoy these. It has less biscuit than a KitKat (which I think it was designed to compete with at “break” times), so it’s more chocolatey, and yet MUCH more exciting than a Flake or Twirl because of the crispy factor!!

    I <3 Time Out.
