Today's Review: Poundland Chocolate Misfits

There seems to be a bit of a wonky food revolution happening at the moment, but let us not forget that broken biscuit bags have been around for a while. I thought I'd grabbed a right bargain when I picked up this bag of Chocolate Misfits, just look at that picture there, Twix, Bounty, and what looks like Snickers! I don't mind having broken up chocolate bar, especially for a mere pound.

Of course, they're not Twix, Bounty and Snickers, they're off brand bars with various fillings. The ingredients on the back tout a whole load of interesting bars, from chocolate hazelnut to truffle to chocolate nougat. Instead what I got was small coconut filled bars, a poor imitation of a Snickers and some kind of Kit Kat like creation but with dark chocolate. I mean, they're not awful chocolate bars, clearly not as good as the big name stuff, but they're pretty much supermarket brand level. But for a bag that promised me a mish mash of biscuits, only getting three was a bit of a kick in the teeth. I guess life is like a bag of Chocolate Misfits, you never know what you're gonna get. Also it's slightly broken and disappointing.

My rating: 2/5


  1. I remember buying a packet off misshaped jaffa cakes at lunch time when i worked in our local high street and possibly eating the whole packet.. and it was big... I did get a bag of random broken biscuits from home bargains once that was clearly from some sort of 'luxury' box which was good, but then the next time i bought it it was just what seemed like cadburys fingers and snack squares.

    Home bargains did, not sure if they still do, a bag of broken chocolate which was actually cadburys chocolate so for the volume, pretty cheap and was really good when i made some fudge!
