Yes, it really is chocolate with bits of crisps in it. When I have told people about it, their reactions have made me wonder if I am just a bt weird, because it seems to me a perfectly normal, and desirable proposition.
So when I heard that this special edition was available, I had to get some! Tayto is a crisp company based in Ireland, so a kindly person with whom I went to school (Geoff, you’re a legend) agreed to send me some when they got their hands on it.
Two bars arrived in the post this week and I have been staring at them in anticipation for quite some time! Like Charlie in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I have been trying to make the most of the situation, extending the pleasure of the whole thing for as long as possible, especially given a chocolate treat this rare and exciting.
Unlike Charlie, I couldn’t wait for weeks and then take a wee nibble at a time. Once I had opened the wrapper and had a good look, I got straight in there.
As you can see from the above picture of the back of the bar, the chocolate is full of little tiny fragments of Tayto’s legendary C&O crisps. When I popped one little square in my mouth and let the chocolate melt away, what was left were all the little fragments – and they were still as stinky as these famed beauties should be!
Personally, I’d buy it in bulk if I could. It’s been great to know I am not alone in my crisp and choc passion. To the doubters I say only this – don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.
