U-NO

u-no.jpgI’ve never met a candy bar that I didn’t like – until now. After seeing the U-NO candy bar in stores for as long as I can remember, I finally bought one for the first time. It was the shiny, silver wrapper that caught my eye and the description of “Rich Creamy Chocolate” that convinced me to buy it. I was surprised to find that the candy bar is neither rich, creamy, nor very chocolaty. The center of the candy bar, which the manufacturer describes as “truffle-like,” is the real problem here. Its dry, crumby texture tasted like chalk in my mouth and had a weak chocolate flavor. It’s a mystery to me why this foul substance would be at the center of a candy bar. You might want to use it to scrub your kitchen sink, but you certainly don’t want to ingest it. My only consolation was that the U-NO was on sale, so I didn’t waste too much money on it. Even if someone offers you one for free, politely decline and go eat some dirt instead. It will taste better.

Funny that the name can be read to say, "Ew, no!"

I ordered an U-NO bar online along with some other candy after reading and hearing about-it sounded so good! I had the same reaction though-I was expecting something similar to a Three Musketeers but got more of a cheap knockoff. I don't think I even finished the bar.

I agree with chumba, it had to be an old one. I've never been a really huge fan of U-No's unless they're frozen, then they're better..a little.

Definitely not my favorite candy bar, but nothing to frown upon. U-No's are fine. Like previous posters suggested, you probably grabbed an old one.
