Well, it has to be said, Mixed Berry Crunch White Chocolate Lolly Truffle and I got on quite well, although I do wish it had a catchier name.
I wasn’t too sure about this one to start with, but that was simply down to my own personal wariness when it comes to anything ‘mixed berry’. This turned out ok though, the mix was quite well balanced; blackcurrant, strawberry and raspberry.
The artificial flavourings are quite obvious, leaving you with a hint of chemical aftertaste. There are a few fruit pieces but I didn’t notice any flavour actually coming from them, they were just chewy.
The crisp cereal and crunchy shortcake biscuits are so few as to be almost incidental.
Unlike Cookies & Cream Belgian Milk Chocolate Lolly Truffle, the chocolate shell works well with this lolly. There is a good thick coating of smooth white chocolate and the sweetness of it compliments the tangy filling.
There is no getting away from the fact that this lolly is sweet – full of calories and fat to boot. I would normally try to get away with my usually line of ‘it’s got fruit in it! Therefore it’s part of my five-a-day.” I doubt anyone would fall for it this time though.
If you are in the mood for a good ol’ sugar fix then this will be for you…..leaves you buzzing for hours.
