Hhahahhahaha yeah tiz me....just ambling along the path of life and thought I'd post about Texans...funny thing...I remember all that time ago banging on about them...and I could not believe when I saw them at my local petrol station....38p each...but too soft and chewy...It said something like 'old favourites' or something...I wonder if Cabanas will be next on the list! :)

I bet that a lot of people who try the new Texans, not having had them in their original state, would think they were a caramel bar. A brave attempt by Nestle but badly let down by terrible distribution. Still no Texans in Peterborough.

I thought it was a cross between caramel and hard toffee.

No. It's supposed to be nougat. In the old days, if you chilled the bar, it would either shatter when you tried to eat it or if slightly softer, would pull away from your teeth in long stringly bits. the chocolate would fall off the sides too.

That's what I missed the choc falling off the sides.

Texans are rubbish.


Chomps are nicer.

Oldspice.. Peterborough Cash & Carry has got lots of Texan Bars, we saw them there last week! Its strange that your local corner shop doesnt have them.

Thanks BC. I forget that you are quite close - being in sunny Skegness - we're almost neighbours!
