Review! New Wonka Crème Brûlée Chocolate Bar
Following on from my reviews of the new Millionaire's Shortbread and Nice Cream, I was pleased to spot the third addition to the new Wonka range - the Crème brûlée. This is described as a vanilla creme with a caramel crunch.
Review! New Wonka Crème Brûlée Chocolate Bar The chocolate bar has a very neat appearance with an appropriately quirky look. Each precisely shaped segment is topped with what looks to me like chocolate coins - some featuring a swirly W. The outer milk chocolate has the same sweet creamy flavor as the previous bars in this range. It's similar in this regard to many of Nestle's other chocolate offerings.

New Wonka Crème Brûlée Chocolate Bar The inner filling immediately has an appetisingly sweet scent of caramel which carries through to the flavor itself. The crème brûlée theme is successfully captured in the flavor here. The filling is very creamy and has visible vanilla speckles which add a gorgeous vanilla flavor. This is then followed by the crunchy texture of the little caramel pieces. I loved the flavor of these, it's caramelised but with that slightly burnt edge to it that you would expect from a crème brûlée. The burnt aspect is thankfully not overpowering to the filling or chocolate, which I've found is often the case with crème brûlée themed chocolate bars. The only negative flavourwise is that the whole combination becomes a bit too sweet very quickly. (Another major negative is the calorie content - see below!).
Review! New Wonka Crème Brûlée Chocolate Bar
It's still not the most exciting of chocolate bars and I would have liked to see some more wacky flavours from to justify the Wonka name. If crème brûlée, then why not make it a flavoured version? There are lots of interesting recipes for flavoured ones out there, like orange, lemon or coffee crème brûlée. Having said all that, this simple Crème Brûlée was still my clear favorite of the three Wonka bars currently on offer. 
Grocery Gems Verdict: Wonka Crème Brûlée
