If ever there was a bit of essential chocolate news for you it was this: Ferrero, who create the delicious goodness that is Nutella, along with Ferrero Rocher and all Kinder products, have just launched a new chocolate bar in the UK and Ireland.
Say hello to your new 3pm bestie. Named Duplo (yes, as in the giant Lego blocks your toddler plays with), the chocolate bar is described as layers of crispy wafer and a hazelnut filling which is topped with milk chocolate. Heaven.
Duplo bars launch nationwide this week, and will be available in single packs as well as multipacks, should you find yourself getting instantly addicted.
A spokesperson for Ferrero said: “Duplo bars first launched in Germany and have since flown off the shelves, so we’re delighted to be bringing this much-loved bar to the UK and Ireland. Offering a delicious taste of milk chocolate, coupled with a unique, creamy and crispy centre, we’re confident that chocolate fans will discover the delight in every bite with Duplo. We can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks.”
Initial thoughts are that they could be a replacement for the beloved Milky Way Crispy Rolls that filled our teenage years with so much joy, but we’ll report back once we’ve done the all-important taste test. Watch this space.
