New! Nestlé Quality Street My Green Triangle Bar

New! Nestlé Quality Street My Green Triangle Bar
The green triangles in Quality Street are generally one of their most popular chocolates, so it must have been a no-brainer for Nestlé to bring out this bar version. They've done the "My Purple Bar" for the last few Christmas' which has apparently "attracted a younger audience to the brand" - so this concept clearly works.
The "My green bar" is basically 4 of the green triangles from Quality Street stuck together with chocolate, and is described as "Milk chocolate with hazelnut praline centre". I liked the shape - it's quite fun to have a chocolate bar with triangles rather than regular boring, square blocks.

I kind of knew what to expect from the taste and I was right. The chocolate was the usual standard sweet, milky stuff from Nestlé which was a decent carrier for the filling. The hazelnut praline tasted just the same as it does in Quality Street - creamy and smooth, with a strong nutty flavor. It was a bit too sweet for my liking, but the bar is quite small so it was tolerable.
Overall, this was a decent bar of chocolate and I would certainly buy one again if I saw it on special offer or reduced in price, but not at the regular price. It isn't quite special or tasty enough for that. I do wish Nestlé would bring out a bar version of the strawberry or orange cremes from Quality Street instead - I think they'd be surprisingly popular, and there's currently no strawberry creme bars on the market to my knowledge (Cadbury Strawberries & Creme doesn't really count as it's more of a yogurt based filling).
