Product name: Nestlé Crunch: Noisettes
Purchase details:
£0.49 for a 100g bar (Home Bargains)

Country of origin:

Having loved the Nestlé Crunch bar, I was really excited when I saw a version in Home Bargains that had the colour green on half of the wrapper. I initially thought it would be mint flavoured, but when I saw the name and the images of hazelnuts, I was just as happy to give this Noisettes variety a go.

This slab had the same overall appearance as the original but it was thinner due to being 20g lighter, and the base looked a bit more packed too – there was less cereal (7% rather than 15%) but this had been replaced with the hazelnuts which made up 13% of the bar. Inside, the nuts were clearly visible, and seemed to be more prominent than in the Milka Hazelnuts bar. Unfortunately, though, my chocolate appeared to have suffered some patchy blooming, and my other gripe was that the shape would have made it difficult to easily get the correct portion size if I hadn’t been eating the whole thing at once...I guess you can’t have everything!

Both the milky chocolate and hazelnuts contributed to an appetising scent and, although the nutty flavour wasn’t immediately obvious when I first put a piece on my tongue, it did then begin to play a large part in the taste. The chocolate had the same flavour I’d enjoyed previously and the hazelnut aspect balanced well with this.

Texturally, the bar was generally the same as the original product but there was an added hardened crunch which was extremely enjoyable. The chocolate still didn’t provide a silky smooth melt, and the sucking texture obviously remained rough, but when the chew was so good, it hardly mattered.

Another bargain, another hit! 

Appearance: 8/10
Overall score:


  1. I keep meaning to try this bar...sounds like it's worth a shot!

    1. I think it's worth a try anyway, but definitely give it a go for the price, Kev!
