Time Out

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

Time Out

I recently went to a candy store that had a pretty decent selection of imported candy bars from the U.K., so along with this review you can expect a few more British candy reviews coming up. Time Out is a bar that I distinctly recall being introduced in Canada in the early ‘90s. I remember it well because they had a fairly widespread advertising blitz, something which is a bit unusual for a new candy bar. I liked it, and ate it on a fairly regular basis until it disappeared without a trace a couple of years later. I just sort of assumed it had been discontinued altogether, but I guess it sold well enough in Britain to keep it on the market.

Time Out essentially consists of some rippled chocolate (sort of like what you’ll find in a Flake bar) sandwiched between two wafers and coated in milk chocolate. Now, I might be remembering this wrong, but I seem to recall that the Canadian version of this bar featured three wafers rather than two, and creamier chocolate rather than the Flake-like stuff found here. I could be way off on that, though. Either way, both bars (the real one, and the one that could very well be a product of my imagination) are fairly similar, and both are quite good.

The wafers in this bar are extremely crispy, and taste mildly of wheat, which helps add some flavour other than the chocolate, without being overpowering – the creamy milk chocolate is still definitely the main attraction here. The chocolate is the standard British Cadbury milk chocolate, which definitely has its own distinctive taste. That’s about it.  It’s just wafers and chocolate, but sometimes it’s the simplest thing that’s the most delicious.

I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s
to be just what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest
writers to write content for you personally?
I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write in relation to here.
Again, awesome site!
