I've been looking for this bar for a while, despite reading some negative reviews, and I guess it's a good thing that it took a long time to find it, as it means this isn't replacing the regular Fruit & Nut any time soon. This is Fruit & Nut Chopped, which is like Fruit & Nut, except with chopped nuts. I guess that's pretty easy to infer from the title, and in theory it's a good idea. While I do like a bar of Fruit & Nut, with large chunks of nut you often find a lot of the flavour concentrated in one piece. Chopping them up spreads the nuttiness out throughout the bar. But it seems that the chopping has a darker purpose.
This bar is very thin, especially compared to other Dairy Milk bars of the same size. You can't make it that thin with the regular sized pieces of nut shoved in there, so it seems there may be a bit of trickery going on to give less product for the same price, especially since this bar weighs significantly less than the average Fruit & Nut bar. I said before that the chopped nuts may have the benefit of spreading the flavour throughout the bar, and in some ways that's true. The chocolate is good, the raisins provide a nice juicy hit, and there's a uniform nutty flavour throughout, but I'm not sure it's much more noticeable than those bars with bigger nuts. I'd much rather spend the money on the classic bar, and get a nice variety of texture, and more importantly more chocolate. This smaller bar is just pretty disappointing.
My rating: 2/5
