I first tried a Topic bar on a whim. I was visiting my sister in New York City and we stopped in one of the plethora of corner markets that you can find there. I was lucky enough to step in one that specialized in foods from the UK, and I stood in awe eying their candy eye for a good chunk of time. There were so many things I’ve never seen before. I was drawn to the Topic bar by its small size and brightly colored wrapper. Not really looking at what it was, I tossed it into the pile of swag I was amassing and it came home with me.
Out of the wrapper, Topis is a very pretty, petite sized bar with a good weight to it. It’s described as milk chocolate, hazelnut, soft nougat and smooth caramel center. No wonder it’s so heavy! There’s a lot going on here!
The taste is wow!. So complex and satisfying, I don’t know where to begin. It’s so creamy with the chocolate, the caramel, the nougat, even the hazelnuts have that wonderful smoothness to them. The flavor is rich and full without any one element being too overpowering. You definitely notice the hazelnuts and the caramel more that the chocolate while the nougat is there just as a soft filler. It really reminds me of a Snickers bar with hazelnuts instead of peanuts. Which, for me, is a much more pleasing combination.
So very good, makes me wish I had bought more! It has such a wonderful richness to it, and it’s very satisfying and indulgent. Think of it as an upper-scale Snickers. I am smitten.
