Last year I received an awesome package of German goodies from a reader called Steffi. See my post HERE which featured most of those products. I was also sent these Corny Nussvoll cereal bars at the same time but for some reason it's taken me ages to post a review, despite these being one of my favourite products from the package (and that's saying something because I loved all of it!).
The first thing I just have to get out of the way is the name. CORNY... lol. Okay let's all get it out of our system, it does sound quite funny to any English speakers. Corny usually meaning something that is trite, unfunny and badly sentimental. No doubt it's meaning for this cereal bar is more along the lines of "filled with corn". :)
The packaging for the Corny Nusswoll is excellent with it's see through windows and muted natural colours. The actual cereal bars look fantastic too, and are loaded with white chocolate chips and almonds.
Sometimes with these kind of nuts cereal bars, they have a tendency to be quite dense and are often held together with a hard sugary binding. Thankfully that wasn't the case here; these bars are chewy and soft, with an added crunchy texture from the abundant almonds. The flavour is very satisfying too, wheaty and golden with a deliciously creamy white chocolate. I really did enjoy these and I'll be scouring my local shops for more from this range. I've seen them turn up from time to time in discount stores.
Thanks again to the lovely Steffi! :)
