Schar Chocolix, little chocolatey bars which are a cross between a rocky and a twix, great if you miss either of those gorgeous chocolate bars.
At around £2.50 for a box of 5 we think they are a little on the expensive side but worth it as a treatAvailability
The odd Asda and most Sainsburys stores sell them so not the hardest to get hold of.Taste
If you miss Twix they are a good substituteAppearance

It did take me a while to get these but only because I'm not near a Sainsbury's and my local Asda doesn't do them, eventually I found them in a bigger branch of Asda by chance, as soon as I saw the box they went straight in my basket as I've been waiting to try them for a while.
The box holds five bars, each bar is around the size of a Rocky bar or a one finger Twix. At £2.50 we thought they were a little on the expensive side for what they are but certainly as a treat they are worth it however they are not something I would immediately throw in my basket if I was trying to cut back on money.
If you are unfortunate enough to be diagnosed Coeliac after enjoying all the gluten filled delights, you have more than likely had a Twix or Rocky at some point. My inital reaction was that they are a cross between the two. Once out of their vivid yellow packaging they have the look of a Twix with it's rippled chocolate coating. Breaking it in half I did expect a more runny caramel like in a Twix but instead I got a more thick version, not the glossy liquid caramel that sticks to your fingers but a more thickened caramel with a matt finish that crumbles when broke as if it has been mixed with chocolate.
However despite the look and feel of the caramel once you take a bite they are very reminiscent of Twix bars, with a nice crunchy base and the distinctive taste of caramel coated in chocolate. It's been so long since I had that taste in my mouth I went back for a second finger!
Don't get me wrong they aren't trying to be Twix, they are very much their own product, but if you miss Twix's and Rocky's, give these a try, they are definitely the closest I have seen to that type of confectionery and are bound to be a sure fire hit with the kids.
