I had spied this on the shelf a couple of times, and was considering a purchase, but the addition of a 25% reduction finally tipped the scales, and I brought one home this very afternoon.
A limited edition bar is a funny thing – either you bemoan the fact you can’t find it any more or it gets largely ignored and quickly forgotten. I must admit to being slightly dubious about this bar anyway (hence me passing it by a couple of times). After all, it could just be a flat Bounty bar.
I’m very happy to report that this is not the case.
The bar consists of little milk chocolate pillows, each of which contains a delicious coconut cream filling with a few flakes of real coconut suspended in it – enough to give texture, but not so many that they end up finding every nook and cranny in your molars (à la Bounty).
It’s meltingly lovely, and the coconut combines with the chocolate in a dangerously moreish way. The chocolate is a 30% milk choc, so it’s no slouch on the tastebuds in itself, but when it starts mingling with the sweet, creamy filling you’re in for a real treat. Taste the Difference is Sainsbury’s flagship foodie line, and this chocolate bar deserves it’s place in the lineup.
I recommend that UK readers go out and buy in a couple before they become extinct, and at 25% off, they’re well worth it.
