Whilst on a dreaded trip to a Garden Centre I first came across Gnaw chocolate, the Peanut Butter bar to be precise. Aside from this I haven’t come across Gnaw until a little trip to Suffolk.
Handcrafted in Gnawfolk, see what they did there, Gnaw use all natural ingredients and definitely no nasties. Running away with their imagination, there are a variety of chocolate bars, Hot Choc shots, Nibbles and Chompers on offer. The most difficult part is choosing which ones to buy.
Banoffee Pie £2.99: Caramel milk flavoured chocolate topped with banana, Gnaw have been creative with the classic British dessert, and boy was this bananaery. Not as sweet as I imagined which worked in it’s favour, this bar is seriously moreish. I can’t say it reminds me of a banoffee pie, it’s missing that crunch, but it is seriously de-lish.
Cherry Bomb £2.99: White chocolate, cherry and popping candy, I was particularly excited about this one. White Belgium chocolate, this bar is super creamy. I didn’t think it was possible however this was far too white chocolatey. Sickly sweet, there was a smidgen of cherry flavour but that was about it. As for popping candy, well I think we need to send a search party for that one. I hadn’t actually known it had popping candy until I read the packet. Belgian chocolate with a POW it is not. For the first time in a long time a unfinished bar of chocolate went in the bin.
For £2.99 these bars are on the expensive side for a chocolate bar. That said for handcrafted in the UK, and with a range of combinations that are not your usual commercial chocolate, it is worth it. It’s a shame the Cherry Bomb wasn’t all that, but the Banoffee Pie certainly made up for it.
