Day Twenty: Clark

I am really anticipating the end of March.
Chocolatey Coated Peanut Butter Crunch

Did you know:
  • The phrase "Clark Bar" has recently become a semi-widespread expression of dismay in the English language. The phrase is usually said after something bad has happened. It is one of few words or phrases in English commonly pronounced with a glottal stop. HUH?!
I am not sure if it's just because it is Friday, and I have been on holidays all week, but does this above statement make sense to anyone? As in, 'Oh, Clark Bar'? If anyone can clear this up for me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Anyway, the Clark bar is brought to you by the same people who brought you those amazing NECCO wafers. So good.

This tastes almost exactly like a Crispy Crunch (again.) It's amazing how similar most chocolate bars are, playing off common taste features (i.e. nougat, crunchy toffee)

Although a lot thicker than a Crispy Crunch, the inside of this bar has the similar toffee/peanut butter inside. Upon chewing the inside of the Clark becomes sticky (almost like toffee) and doesn't taste all that much like peanut butter.

I only ate 1/3 of this one for two reasons:
1. I'm getting sick of chocolate
2. It wasn't all that different from a Crispy Crunch and my interest waned.

This being said, the Clark is tasty, however it was just too common. (I think I'm becoming a chocolate bar snob!)
