The Nuggle bar is kind of like the Trinidad and Tobago version of the Baby Ruth bar. It has peanuts, caramel, fudge and chocolate. These things sound good on paper but the end result isn’t as tasty as expected. One the positive side it’s packed with peanuts. On the negative side, the caramel and fudge are very dry. So rather than creamy, it’s crumbly and a bit hard to chew. The chocolate is okay but somewhat muddy tasting.
This is another product from Charles Candy. I previously wrote about Tiki Gold. The corporate website doesn’t indicate what a nuggle is. According to Urban Dictionary, it’s the act of snuggling with a loved one. Sadly, this candy rather than making me want to hug someone makes me reach for the mouthwash instead.
It’s interesting to learn about the junk foods of other cultures, as well as their traditional foods. Thanks for posting this.
Yeah I always find it fun to discover new foods both junk and non-junk. Thanks very much for the comment!
Reblogged this on CANDY CRASH TEST.
Thanks for the re-blog. I like your site!
What are you talking about? Nuggles are super-tasty. It’s famous. I was given one by a Trinidadian. He was proud of it and I still remember them like 8 years later. Maybe you got a bad one.
Haha it’s possibly I got a crusty one. I’ll give another one a shot and let you know how it tastes. Glad you enjoyed Nuggles. Thanks for the comment.
Best chocolate bar I’ve ever had! Better than every American candy out there–and I’ve lived here all my life. Originally from Jamaica and I grew up loving the ‘Catch’ bar but THISSS–THIS IS IT! The best! So glad it ships to the U.S!
I love the nuggle and this is the first time eating it. Where can i buy the candy bar in USA.
They unfortunately don’t have a store locator. I would suggest the international section of your grocery store (where I saw them). If you like in an area with a large Carribean population, sometimes you’ll see them in community stores.
