  • Taste & texture

    The ‘Classico’ bar is surprisingly sweet, which isn’t exactly expected when described as a mix of fruits, nuts and spices.

    These tastes are still noticeable within the make-up of the bar but are not overpowering.

    They also have two additional flavours ‘The Di Bosco’ – a forest fruits-themed bar and ‘The Ciocco’, which will be a favourite with chocolate lovers.

    There’s a whopping 50 grams of carbohydrates per bar but a large percentage of these are sugar-based. Its nutty foundation also results in higher fat levels than other bars as well.


    The cool retro packaging apes hand-made soigneur-wrapped food but can be a bit of a faff to get open. These bars are expensive as well, but buying in bulk will cut costs.
