Maltesers Honeycomb

Ever wonder what the crunchy chocolatey goodness that is Maltesers would taste like if it had a love-child with a Violet Crumble or Crunchie. This is kind of it. Ish.


Maltesers have seen release in standard milk chocolate, in the no longer available white chocolate, the quickly withdrawn mint, and the still available and quite yummy dark chocolate (the only one that you can probably say is kinda-sorta-maybe a little good for you), and now Mars is trying it again with a newbie: honeycomb.

Let’s get something out of the way first: while Maltesers say these are honeycomb flavour, good luck finding any honeycomb in the ingredients. There’s plenty of sugar, barley malt extract, and glucose syrup, but no honeycomb, and that’s because these are “honeycomb flavoured”, not actually honeycomb.

In fact, trying them, you get the feeling the chocolate is flavoured to taste like honeycomb, not the malt inside, which still tastes like your standard Malteser. Not that it’s bad, just very sweet, and kind of like honeycomb, but also not really.

Much of the honeycomb you can buy like a Crunchie or Violet Crumble you can make yourself, and while it tastes like honey, often it’s just golden syrup with bicarb soda, so we’re not thoroughly shocked to see no honey in this mixture. Still, it’s something to be aware of if you’re going in thinking this will be a ball of Crunchie wrapped up like a Malteser, because that’s definitely not the case.

Really, this is just a slightly sweeter Malteaser, with a taste of honeycomb threaded through the chocolate.
