CyberCandy kindly sent me these two Macaroon bars to do one of my favourite kind of reviews - a comparison! I never knew that these kind of "candy macaroon" bars even existed, let alone there being two rival brands: Wilton and Caffreys. These Irish bars both have very similar packaging with very simple designs and retro style paper wrappers. These are obviously both nostalgic bars with long histories. I'm not even going to enter the debate of which one was produced first, but if anyone wants to add to the history of these bars then please leave a comment below!
|Wilton Macaroon Bar|
When it came to taste, however, there were a few notable differences. The Wilton Macaroon had very small pieces of coconut within it, making the chocolate mainly smooth in texture. The chocolate was super sweet and had a very subtle coconut taste. As a coconut fan I'd love a stronger flavour but it was still a very tasty little treat. I'd take this over a Bounty any day!

The Wilton Macaroon is available from CyberCandy for £0.75p and also comes in a Mint Crisp version. The Caffreys Macaroon is a bargain at only £0.49p.
