Snickers & Hazelnut

My long time readers know of my love for Snickers as chocolate bar of choice for both endorphin and energy boost. Well, I recently discovered a new variety of Snickers: Snickers & Hazelnut. Guess what is different with this bar. Yes, you guessed it, very perceptive of you: hazelnuts. Maybe I am a sucker, I don't know, I don't really follow new recipes of old successes, but I really love the added taste of hazelnuts in my Snickers. It gives it a distinctive and actually distinguished taste. Because let's face it: hazelnuts are far more sophisticated than peanuts or, well, peanuts. Added to the workmanlike Snickers, it's one of those odd matches that actually work. Like I said on Facebook: "Eating Snickers and hazelnut is snob, but it's good". Maybe not something they'd use for their advertisement campaigns, but I think it deserves to be a new great unknown line. In any case, if you want to try a great classic revisited with success, try this bar.

S'il vendait des noisettes
Au lieu de cacahuètes
Ce serait bien plus chouette.
Mais il n'en vend pas.

Mars, contrairement à Mahomet, l'a compris l'affaire, semble-t-il. Mais étant donné mes allergies, je vais m'en tenir aux barres Mars.

I love Snickers too. Remember when they were called Marathon? The hazelnut one reminds me of an old, childhood favourite called Topic ~ a hazelnut in every bite.

Ah! I'd love Snickers with hazelnuts! Sounds like a very special treat. Enjoy!

@PJ-Mars est une fière compagnie anglaise. La seule bonne chose qui soit à Slough.
@Deborah-I actually discovered it recently that they used to be called Marathon.
@Nelli-Apparently they will keep it.
