      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This bar is cheap to buy, but unfortuantely tastes a bit cheap too.

      I used to love milky ways. I'm sure I still would if they were suitable for vegetarians. So when I came across these milky way style bars in the confectionary aisle of Sainbury's, I couldn't resist trying them out, seeing as I was looking for a chocolately treat anyway. Below is some information about the bars and my opinion of them. Value for Money: For £1.08 you get a multipack of 10 individually wrapped bars each weighing 26g each. This is comparable in weight and cost to Tesco "Wild and Whippy" bars, and a lot cheaper than Milky Way (currently £1.88 for 12 in Sainsbury's). At just over 10p a bar, I feel this product gives great value for money, and is definitely a cheap treat. 5/5 Nutrition: The "traffic lights" on the front of the pack are all red and amber, which did concern me at first. Looking in more detail, the calorie content of each bar is 117kcal (which I find acceptable), but the fat content is 4.4g per bar with saturated fat being 2.6g (13% of a woman's daily allowance), which is higher than I would have liked. As previously mentioned the bars are vegetarian, but not suitable for anyone with peanut, nut, wheat gluten or dairy allergies. I feel that from time to time these bars are fine, but if I was going to eat them each day, I would want something with less saturated fat. 3/5. Taste: The important one! On the packet Light and Whippy bars are described as "milk chocolate bars with a lightly whipped nougat centre". On biting into one I found a decent layer of chocolate (about 1mm thick), which was tasty, but nothing particularly special, surrounding the sweet nougat, which unfortunately did nothing for me. My main problem is it's texture. Although the term "whippy" is used to describe the nougat, I don't think "light" should be. It's much heavier than I expected, and kind of chewy. I'd even go so far as to call it a bit stodgy, which is very off putting. Although the bars are perfectly edible and some people may like them, I did not find the experience of eating them particularly enjoyable, and would not buy them again. 3/5. In Conclusion: I can give Sainsbury's Light and Whippy bars no more than 3 stars. After all, it doesn't matter how good a value for money something is, if you don't like the taste it's not worth having.

      great value from Sainsbury's.

      SAINSBURY'S LIGHT AND WHIPPY CHOCOLATE BARS. Having recently been over to see one set of grandchildren i was wondering what to take over for them, as i love chocolate and they do to, but wanting something a bit lighter on their tummies, decided to take a packet of these delicious chocolate bars. tHE PACKAGE ******** The package is in a easy to tear open blue packet with ten light and whippy chocolate bars written on the front of the packet, and a illustration of a few of these bit like milky ways shown on the front. The Taste ********** These are a bit like a Milky Way, and they have a thick coating of chocolate tastes a bit like the chocolate in the Sainsbury's Basics bars but a little bit sweeter, and inside a creamy fluffy centre, tastes a bit like a milky way, but just a slightly little bit harder. The grandchildren really enjoyed these bars, and the chocolate is lovely, the inside is so easy for a small child to eat, and they are great as they contain ten of these little bars inside, you can find them in Sainsbury's in their biscuits isle and they are on the front of the shelve so that you can easily spot them, they are not part of the basics range but cost just over a pound for a whole packet of ten, and they are absolutely great value for money. Ten is quite a lot to keep my grandchildren happy, that means that they can get two each and two is more than enough for anyone. They are not individually rapped, and you just open the packet and there they are, if you only want to eat a couple the packaging is very flimsy so i suggest that you place the remander into a little plastic tupperware container and pop into the fridge for another day, i like to eat my chocolate straight from the fridge, as i do not like warm or melted chocolate at all,. Great value for money and enough to go around, also a great buy for childrens parties too. Thanks for reading and rating my reviews x,
