I am not much of a fan of blackcurrant flavoured stuff but I enjoy sweets that have some sourness to them, so I thought I would give these a go.
A little blurb on the wrapper describes them as 'an eye-watering blend of ghoulish purple sponge, dark crackly chocolate and a sour blackcurrant flavoured filling'
Time to have a taste and see if it lives up to the description!
The sponge is nice and light and the chocolate is lovey as always for a MvVitie's product, but not crackly as it's described. The blackcurrent filling while not overly sour does have a nice sour kick to it that isn't overpowering and makes you feel slightly dribbley...
I thought these were a tasty snack that are a bit different to most of the cake bars you get. I would recommend them if you like McVitie's products, like sweets with a sourness to them, or like me, you like food to be strange colours!
