Love Bites and Bars

I had a Love Bite with my lunch today.

No, it’s not what you think. A Love Bite is this tiny snack bar (half of a Love Bar) Pret sells that in their words is “packed with dark chocolate, coconut, almonds, walnuts, chopped dates and raisins.” From what I see, the bottom consists of a crumbly soft graham cracker base with a condensed milk layer over it. On top are nuts, coconut flakes, chocolate chips, raisins and the other goodies.

Even though the list of ingredients sounds like way too much sweetness for one snack, you can’t help but be drawn in by the clever name. I remember it tasted a little too rich the first time I had one, but now I look forward to having one after lunch as a mid-afternoon snack. I have thought about trying to replicate the recipe, but it looks like too much trouble for a snack.

Please excuse the pic; I took it with my cell phone (after I took a bite out of it!).
What is one of the most cleverly-named snacks you've tried?

  3. Nerds are my personal favorite candy... but that's just me :)

  4. Nerds were good! I haven't had them in a while. Maybe I should buy some to give to trick or treaters. Of course I will end up eating most of them myself!
