Drifter is one of those chocolates that’s been around for years but has never really tempted me. This is a little odd, as I wasn’t even entirely sure what it was when I bought this one for review.
But from the moment I bit into it, I realised why I had been shunning it all these years. It’s yet another pair of chocolate covered wafer and caramel fingers.
When I’d managed to get over the supreme dullness of it all, I noticed it didn’t taste too bad.
The wafer and caramel did stick in my teeth, but were tasty enough (if a little too sweet) and the chocolate was typical Nestlé, steadfastly occupying the middle ground between ‘OK’ and ‘alright’.
Drifter is a pleasant little snack, but the problem is there’s just too many bars on the shelves that are too similar and it doesn’t stand out.
I’m afraid this Drifter’s brothers and sisters are going to be left on the shelves with its wafery caramel fingered friends next time.
