A Cadbury Crunchie is a truly unique chocolate bar in terms if its taste, texture and the use of “honeycomb”. The honeycomb is of course cinder toffee or sponge toffee which is a hardened syrup with air. The honeycomb is then covered in Cadbury milk chocolate. These two flavours combine to make an experience unlike anything else.
It tastes great and it’s of a decent size and a different offering to many chocolate bars without some kind of gimmick. But, is the honeycomb easier on the calories than plain old chocolate? Are there better alternatives out there if you’re stretched on syns? Let’s find out.
