Even on the East Coast, I have heard tales of the wonder and delight about the See’s Awesome Nut & Chew Bar. My friends out west all rave about it and I never understood what the fuss was about since I’d hadn’t eaten one before. It wasn’t until I read Cybele’s review of the bar that I specifically began to crave it. My love of chocolate and good nougat just called to me in this bar, yet I dawdled in purchasing myself some. It was only this past summer where I located them in a See’s store and bought a bunch to compensate.
The bar’s wrapper describes it as “chewy nougat with almonds and honey covered in dark chocolate”. I love the look of this bar, or should I saw the wrapper. The red is pleasing to look at, and the yellow lettering has a classic feel to it. The little bee is a whimsy element, and reminds me that I’m in for a real treat.
Unwrapped the bar is lovely. Long and slender with the dark chocolate looking glossy and flawless. The dark chocolate is perfect for this bar, and I’m glad they didn’t decide to use a milk chocolate. It smells lightly sweet with nice notes of cinnamon, coconut, coffee, and cocoa.
The nougat is immediately impressive as you can really taste the honey in it. The almonds are crunchy and fresh. The bar’s texture is a nice chew that’s not flimsy, yet still soft so it’s satisfying. You can tell the ingredients are pure, simple and combined to make something really out of this world. I know it’s a short description, but it’s accurate since the flavors are very straightforward and clean cut. It’s simply something I suggest you to experience yourself.
I was able to by more of these back in December and everyone I shared them with were immediately addicted. Just a warning.
You have to be pretty darned confident to name a candy bar with “awesome” in it. This bar lives up to it’s name. It’s so good. It’s a good thing I don’t live in California otherwise I’d be eating these all day.
