I thought these candy bars (and don't let anyone tell you they aren't candy bars, I've seen some refer to these as cookies) were a fairly new product, but a bit of research makes me think they were popular back in the late 60's. Maybe they were out of circulation for a bit and have recently returned? They are advertised as "milk chocolate caramel wafers". Yep, exactly as advertised.
Mr. L found them, again, a bit dry for his taste. I'm beginning to think that all these UK items we are trying, aren't dry because they came from overseas or were past their expiration date (none of them were) but because that's just the way the British seem to like them. They were soft with just a bit of crunch. Not bad.
The package had 9 Taxi bars, each individually wrapped so it made it easy to throw into a lunch bag to have a treat. $4.99 for the nine bars, coming in at 130 calories each. I liked that they were small candy bars so that you kept the calories down with each bar (and only 16 carbs).
I have absolutely no idea why they are called Taxi bars. They do have a saying on their website "Taxi bars are as good as ever so jump in and enjoy the ride all over again". I assume that maybe they actually do have something to do with Taxi's but the packaging doesn't really convey that.
After having one of these, I wanted to go get a Kit Kat bar if that tells you anything.
