Since I had the amazing luck to find myself in a See’s store, I couldn’t help but buy as many of their items as I could. I knew they carried bars along with their lollipops and boxes, but I had never laid my eyes upon the Awesome Walnut Square Bar until then. Pleased to know there was more single-serve bars for me to purchase (I already had it out for the Awesome Nut & Chew and the Awesome Peanut Brittle bars), I tossed a few into my shopping cart. I didn’t know when I’d see them in a store again, and I didn’t want to take any chances.
The bar itself is a square, unlike most standard candy bars that are usually rectangular. I think Walnut Square and Chunky should go out on a date.
Unwrapped the bar is beautiful, with the glossy chocolate coating slightly rippled like wind-blown sand. I tried to break off a piece for a photo only to find that’s it’s very pliable and dense. Smells very sweet and of the chocolate coating.
The texture is very thick and dense, like a slab of ultra chewy caramel, which is mainly what this is made up of. You taste the caramel right away: mild and buttery with a touch of salt. It’s so good that you hardly notice the chocolate at all. Then there’s the walnuts which are really the star of this bar (hence the name!). The chucks are a good size, and you taste their nutty and sweet flavors immediately. The chewy caramel paired with the soft but slightly crunchy nuts gives an incredible textural sensation and chew in the mouth.
Even though this is a combination I don’t really crave or specifically look for, I really enjoyed it. It’s a nice quality unique piece of candy. If you’re a walnut lover, you need to get your hands on this.
