I Paid: $2.49 for a 2.82-ounce bar (prices may vary by region)
Bubble Chocolate is aerated, which means it’s in light, flaky layers (sort of like a chocolate croissant) that collapse into powdery dust on your tongue. I would guess that the bar failed in the past because, stateside, there’s a perception that weight equals value. Americans like big, meaty portions, and this thing is featherweight.
Nevertheless, it’s not a bad candy car. As the chocolate melts, it seems to coat your mouth, and the pronounced chocolate flavor asserts itself, so the product seems more substantial than it is.
This time around, Bubble Chocolate is trying to do what Mars did for 3 Musketeers: turn its Achilles heel (the candy bar tastes light and insubstantial) into a selling point for dieters (this light chocolate bar has fewer calories per bite!). Arguably a diet food, a large bar is 2.82 ounces and about 400 calories. But at least unlike the previously reviewed huffable chocolate, it’s meant to be eaten.
