This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Finally got to visit a Poundstretcher (been curious about visiting since they upped their game post-Chris Edwards' intervention - though that's just a guess).

Sold in Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East and they're a Mars Bar-style "caramel and nougat layered" chocolate bar. (I used to love Aztecs when they made a brief reappearance in the UK circa 2000, and disappeared after a year or two).

Here's a picture in Forge Retail Park, Parkhead, Glasgow tonight:3208591.jpgBBE June 2019, these seem to be Egyptian imports.3208591.jpg3208591.jpgAlso 14 x Swisse Woman Ultivite Multivitamin Packs (BBE July 2019) for 50p in this store.3208591.jpg

These are being sold in packs of 2 tomorrow..... 😯
These have been around in PS for months and months and months.

Are these the same bars which are coated in 'fake' chocolate hence the labelling of 'Family Milk Chocolate' ?

Like I said, I don't visit Poundstretcher often. No idea about fake chocolate, that's news to me. But it's clear there are translations going on as there's an English information sticker on top as well.

Near the bottom of the Wiki page it says "Moro is also produced in Egypt and distributed in adjacent markets" and it does mention "Mondelez (formerly Kraft Foods Egypt SAE)" on the packaging.

According to wiki
'EU regulations specify a minimum of 25% cocoa solids. However, an agreement was reached in 2000 that allowed an exception from these regulations in the UK, Ireland, and Malta, where "milk chocolate" can contain only 20% cocoa solids. Such chocolate is labelled as "family milk chocolate" elsewhere in the European Union.'


So UK milk chocolate is EU family milk chocolate.

Interesting, I didn't know that!

I also got Daniel's Delights chocolate bars from nearby Home Bargains but one review I see isn't great.

As always, the UK allows industry to lower the standards because our consumers don't care about quality. Only the USA beats us for the amount of cheap-quality crap we're willing to lap up so manufacturers can continue making obscene profits and don't have to actually improve their products.

Going to get worse after Brexit!
These are not very nice, first bite seems ok, but then the taste of cheap "everything" kicks in

IMO not worth a £!

So our high standard is everyone else's lowest standard. That sums up the uk perfectly.

Er, yes, I knew that. I was replying to the comment about "fake chocolate".

It is the Irish version of the Cadburys Boost. They do a white Moro too.
(The Irish Moro consists of nougat, biscuit and caramel filling and chocolate covering. The wrapper is blue, with the "Moro" logo in white. It is manufactured and sold in Ireland.)

The Irish Moro (as far as I can tell) is more similar to the UK's Cadbury Boost which is why I didn't add that excerpt from Wikipedia. It's the Mars bar-alikes I referred to. It does get confusing, though.

I had some white Moro bars from Jack Fultons (now Fulton Foods) years ago and they were amazing.

What's that got to do with the price of tea?

Sigh. I knew all the information about the company that own this brand - I mentioned the Wiki link in the Deal post. As I said, I was replying to the person who thought "family chocolate" meant fake chocolate - so I also quoted the blurb on the back of the box.

Ok, I didn't mean this to turn horrid, but I think you're at cross purposes. I get you were originally replying about "fake chocolate", so now I know that you know "all the information about the company that own this brand", the addition of Mondalez, in that context wasn't really necessary. Then your reply to me "I did add the Wikipedia page as well" wasn't relevant to my comment, not that you shouldn't have referenced Wikipedia originally.

Sorry, I'm just trying to be clear about how your comments have been interpreted and how your replies led to mine! Nothing beyond that an no I'll feelings intended!
Funny I should be thinking about Chris Edwards, seems he's back on the High Street, saw this last night around 8.30pm on the old Poundworld, Argyle Street, site:37412111-iOOBK.jpgFrom The Sun (unfortunately)!

"OneBelow is the latest venture by Poundworld founder Chris Edwards and will sell a variety of household products and food for under £1, according to The Grocer.
The first branch to open will be in Leeds at the end of February, with further plans to open stores in Bradford, Wakefield, Glasgow, Irvine and two in London by the end of March."
