Summary

Snickers Kesar Pista lacks the abundance of pista we were looking for. The flavor of saffron too, was extremely subtle. It is sweeter than the original variant with the addition of almonds.

Nutty pistachios paired with the complex floral flavors of saffron- desi desserts are incomplete without these.

The OG caramel-infused, peanut-loaded chocolate bar now comes in a Kesar Pista variant. The flavors, texture, varieties of nuts used, and our overall experience is spelled out in Mishry’s Snickers Kesar Pista chocolate bar review. 

Did we like it better than the OG or is this a twist this chocolate bar didn’t need?

Our Review Factors

What were we looking for in the Snickers Kesar Pista chocolate bar?

Our review highlights everything that makes the Kesar Pista variant different from the only peanut chocolate bar. Floral notes of kesar or the nuttiness of pista, what shines brighter? The chocolate to nougat to caramel proportions, the quantity, and types of nuts added and more such details are covered in the following sections. 

1. Taste

What is the primary taste – sweet, bitter, or salty? Nutty or chocolatey? Could we taste the complex saffron flavors? If yes, were they subtle or intense? Do the nuts taste fresh? Are the nuts lending a roasted flavor?

2. Texture

We checked the texture in two stages- the nuts and the complete chocolate bar. Do the nuts retain their crunch or have they turned soggy? The 3 Cs- caramel, nougat, and chocolate- chewy or sticky?

3. Appearance

Does the bar have a smooth surface or is it textured? What about the cross-sectional view? Could we see the nuts or have they been blended?

4. Ingredients

What nuts does the brand use? Are the quantities specified? Are real saffron strands used or synthetic flavors added?

5. Other Parameters

Packaging – The Kesar Pista bar is packaged like chocolate bars usually are, in a wrapper without a tray. 

Shelf Life – Snickers Kesar Pista has a two-month shelf life. 

Calories – 100 grams of this chocolate bar would offer 463 Kcal with 6.7 grams of protein, 59.9 grams of carbohydrates (of which 46.49 grams is sugar), and 21.8 grams of fat. 

Price – A 42-gram bar is priced at Rs 50/-. 

Snickers Kesar Pista Chocolate Bar – Detailed Review

Our experience, what we liked, and what we didn’t are discussed in this section. 

The top of the Kesar Pista variant features a cross-surfaced like other Snickers. We cut the bar in half for visual data collection. 

There were more almond bits than pistachios. The nuts are infused in a caramel-nougat blend that is covered with milk chocolate. 

On tasting, we found the bar to be overly sweet. The nuts add some saltiness. However, this does not cut out or balance the overwhelming sweetness. The pistachios and almonds taste fresh and retain the crunch. The almonds seem to be roasted as the nuttiness is relatively more. There were no visible saffron strands as the brand uses nature-identical saffron flavor. The flavor of this spice was exceptionally subtle.

The caramel and nougat have the characteristic sweetness and gooey texture.
