Nestle Munch Chocolates – Our Review Factors

The Nestle Munch nuts chocolates are a limited series of nutty chocolate bars by the brand. There are two variants in this range- one is coated with peanuts and the other uses wheat cocoa balls as the crunchy element.

Along with the two new chocolate bars, we tasted the classic Nestle Munch chocolate for a detailed analysis of the key differences. 

Does Team Mishry appreciate the crunchy, nutty flavors or would we stick to the plain ol’ chocolate-coated wafer bars?

1. Flavor

The proportion of chocolate coating to wafer is of prime importance when it comes to chocolate wafer bars. Added nuts or crunchy elements and their quantity can also change the overall flavor.

Chocolate-covered wafer biscuits and the same with a topping of nuts, the proportion of chocolate to wafer to nuts must be balanced to deliver a decent taste. 

The brand describes how the nutty variants are multi-textural. In our Nestle Munch chocolates review, we discuss whether or not this multi-textural chocolate is worth a try. 

What could we taste more in the new Nestle Munch variants? How was the chocolate-peanut balance? Too many salted peanuts and little chocolate? 

2. Crunchiness

Since the new Nestle Munch nuts chocolates boast of a ‘multi-sensorial experience’ owing to the layers of textures in them, judging the crunchiness is one of the major parameters for our Nestle Munch chocolates review. 

Did the peanuts have a fresh crunch? What about the crunch of the wafer biscuit?

3. Price

There are Rs 5 and Rs 10 Nestle Munch chocolates available. You can also get larger packs (10-20 individually packed pieces). These fall in the price range of Rs 150-300.
