Review: Doctor Who Milk Chocolate Bar
Hello Sweetie! Doctor Who fans will be aware that it's the 50th Anniversary of the iconic television series, with a special one-off episode "The Day of The Doctors" scheduled for the 23rd November. And what better way to commemorate the Doctor's long exploration of the Wibbly, Wobbly, Timey, Wimey... Stuff, than with a cheap bar of chocolate? All with a collectible sticker included - stickers are cool!
At first glance this chocolate bar looks suspiciously like the One Direction confectionery (also with collectible sticker), made by the same company Bon Bon Buddies, that was reviewed on Kev's Snack Review a few months back. Indeed a very quick examination confirms that the One Direction bar has simply regenerated into this Doctor Who chocolate bar.
Once I removed the outer wrapper, I was greeted by a fairly standard looking chocolate bar. I was disappointed to see that it wasn't any bigger on the inside.
When it comes to the flavour of the actual chocolate, well... it's a bit like eating a bigger version of cheap advent calendar chocolate. Perhaps not as bad as eating fish fingers with custard, but not that far off either. I wish I could say that this was the perfect companion for a cup of tea, but unfortunately it's the perfect companion for the bin. Without the collectible stickers attached, I doubt there would be many repeat purchases.
Only buy this if you think the above sticker is worth £1.00.
