Nick received the 2012 packaging, but this is the 2013 I saw recently
I'd like to preface this review by saying I have a love/hate relationship with honey. I'm a fan of it when it plays a supporting role and isn't the main flavor. However, I am not Winnie the Pooh and I don't enjoy feeling like I'm sucking on one of those store bought honey bears either. We all know I love caramel though, so hopefully that will be the prevailing flavor.
Now there's no official description of these bars but from looking at them composition I'm going to take a guess and say it’s a honey greek yogurt base with a caramel swirl. I could be wrong and it could be along the lines of Ben & Jerry's new frozen greek yogurt flavor. I guess I'll just have to give it a try and find out for myself. Oh the things I do for you guys;]
+1 for labeled wrappers!
All of that turns into an afterthought though because these bars taste delicious. You’re first hit by a slight tartness from the greek yogurt but right after a lot of sweetness comes through mainly from the caramel. The honey seems to stay in the background. The caramel isn’t super sweet but it’s just enough to counteract and balance the natural tartness of the greek yogurt. The honey flavor is very subtle, which is something I appreciate. It’s more or less just adds a little more sweetness without overpowering the caramel. The flavor of the bar as a whole isn’t all that intense but it’s a light treat that I could see pleasing most caramel fans. My main gripe with these bars is that they’re quite tiny. At 90 calories a bar though, you can easily justify eating more than one of them. I can’t say these are my favorite novelty but I can see why the lady from Wells feels that way.
Verdict? Should be named Caramel Honey
Buy Again? Sure
