Thanks to one of my lovely Twitter followers for letting me know about the existence of the new Tesco Bites bags. I didn't manage to find the most interesting looking - Jellybean Jumble Bites - but I did pick up these salted caramel and pretzel creations. They consist of dark chocolate tiffin with salted caramel and salted pretzel pieces, topped with milk chocolate.
These bites certainly are chocolatey. The tiffin is pretty dark, with a nice hint of sweetness, and while it does have a lighter texture than I'd have hoped, it certainly packs a lot of flavour. The caramel and pretzel pieces add a nice bit of texture, but I couldn't exactly taste them. The salt is noticeable right away, in fact there's a lot of it, so the flavours really are a bit out of whack. The milk chocolate on top helps balance out the sweetness, but overall I couldn't really get on board with these. They're certainly not bad, but the bites that already exist at Tesco do a better job. I'll be sure to pick up some of the other new bags, but I found these to be pretty average.
