This candy bar is one that always made me chuckle when I heard of it. Really, does one need the suggestion to eat more? Pul-eeze. I am already plenty talented in that department. A sweet friend of mine sent one to me from Canada, since that’s Eat-More’s preferred habitat.
There is little known about Eat-More’s origins. Only a little blurb on the website tells us that it’s now owned by Hershey, and that they acquired it from Nestle who bought it from Lowney. This candy bar has certainly been around the block.
The Eat-More is described as “Dark Toffee Peanut Chew”, which depending on where you are in the world can mean different things. I decided to not speculate too much ad just open the wrapper and find out for myself right away.
Firstly, Eat-More is a big, long bar. You smells the sweetness and the peanuts right away. It’s slightly sticky to handle, but it’s looks like a giant slab of darkened caramel generously studded with peanuts. I had expected it to be enrobed in chocolate from the description, but that’s not the case. The chocolate must be mixed into the toffee base, which would explain its dark color.
The flavor is pleasing. It’s main flavor is the roasted peanuts, complimented by the toffee which is sweet with subtle notes of cream and burnt sugar. The chew is soft and a tad crumbly, which I was surprised by. Thankfully though it’s not so thick that I feel my molars are in danger.
Halfway though the bar I felt quite full. I guess this is where the “Eat-More” part comes in. Do I admit defeat or continue to finish? I opted for the former, and I couldn’t help but wonder how the other half will do waiting to be eaten. It’s pretty study, so I’m sure it’ll be ok.
I still can’t help but hear in my head: “Eat more? Well, don’t mind if I do….”
