Mars Planets

Mars PlanetsWhat happens when you take the constituent parts of a Mars Bar and Mars Delight, squish them up into little balls and coat them in chocolate? Well, you get Mars Planets, that’s what.

Planets are little balls of soft malt nougat, caramel and wafer covered in milk chocolate. Nothing more, nothing less.

They taste exactly as you’d expect. The nougat one taste like Mars Bar nougat… the caramel one tastes like Mars Bar caramel and the wafer one taste like Mars Delight wafer.

Mars PlanetsThat’s really all there is to them.. and to be honest, while they’re not offensive in any way, they’re just a bit boring. The only way to make them interesting is to eat the whole pack in one go.

I think Mars may have missed a trick here. You see, they also make Revels – a very similar concept – chocolate balls with different centres all mixed up in a bag. Planets are just a little dull on their own, but they’d all make interesting additions to Revels. Maybe as a special addition pack (I can’t see Mars Planets lasting long anyway).

In the mean time, the best way to eat Planets is probably to buy them with a bag of Revels and mix them all up together. That way you’ll get some real variety – although if you’re anything like me, you’ll probably still just stuff them all into your mouth in one go anyway.

    well actually i think that mars planets are rather splendid! the chewy ones are very nice and chewy. the crunchy ones are very nice and crunchy. the soft ones, well they are very nice and hard to be honest! only jokin. any way: vote barrack obalma in the usa vote thing cos he is the best one i think…. lets drift away ooooooooooh …………………..

  2. Yes, they are boring, in fact, more than that, they are bland to the point of horribleness. The only chocolate that I’ve had that is more bland is Hersheys, which tastes foul, like laxitive chocolate.
