Taste test: From the outside, this revival of the Mars bar looked like a Snickers, except a little less thick, and flat on top rather than having textured ripples.
I bit to to find that most of the thickness of the bar consisted of a nougat layer, with a thin caramel layer on top of that. The outside was coated with milk chocolate. On the first bite, I didn't taste or feel any almond, but for each bite after that, it became clear that there were some almonds within the nougat layer. In fact, quite a few almonds, with a definite almond taste and soft crunch. The chocolate, nougat and caramel were a nice combination, and the almonds were a sharp contrast to the rest in both taste and texture. This bar leads me to believe that peanuts go better in a candy bar than almonds, as they taste better with the sweet stuff than almonds do, but it was still pretty good.
