I would seem silly for someone to try and recreate a chocolate bar as popular as Snickers, but that is what supermarkets do up and down the country, supplying customers with their own name brand. But why? Simply because it is cheaper. No matter what the quality, big brand names are always more expensive than a supermarket own, so those looking to save their pennies will go for a like product at a cheaper cost.
That is who Sainsbury's is targeting when they create products such as this Nutty Nougat Chocolate Bar. Described as 'soft nougat and caramel milk chocolate bar with peanuts' and can be bought in packs of eight for £1.50.
In some cases a supermarket own can actually taste better than the market leader, but when it comes to something as wonderful as Snickers, it is hard to achieve, and Sainsbury's Nutty Nougat aren't anywhere near in the same league.
The peanuts lack the saltiness of Snickers, the nougat lacks the maltiness of Snickers, and the caramel quite frankly lacks any depth of flavour at all. If you are looking for something like Snickers, it is probably best to actually just stick with Snickers.
