Nestlé Peppermint Crisp
“Peppermint crisp, peppermint cool”, and “Crisp mint cracknel coated in milk chocolate” are the lines printed on the bar. I just wanna note that the first quote there made me laugh so hard for some reason, I think it was the “peppermint cool” part, I can just imagine some lame, cheesy 90s advert shouting it out. Now I don’t know what mint cracknel is, so I decided to consult Google, where I was relocated to the Star Wars wikipedia (otherwise known as the Wookieepedia! Haha!) and notified that it was a popular appetiser for Jabba the Hutt, how delicious.
In the end I decided to just open the bar and find out for myself, peeling off the wrapper and I was instantly hit with a strong, peppermint smell. The bar has six pieces, each with Nestlé printed on them.
The pieces half snap, half rip off from each other. The cracknel is quite strange, a sticky, crunchy, minty, bubbly like…stuff. The bar reminds me of an Aero only with cracknel instead of bubbly chocolate. It almost breaks to pieces inside your mouth, before the cracknel sticks together, then to your teeth all in one big minty, chocolatey lump.
Honestly I’m not sure if I like it or not. It’s tasty, but it just feels wrong, I think I’d recommend this just for the slightly strange experience.
