Save on your chocolate habit by swapping the big name bars for these cheaper alternatives — plus how you can win £15,000
NOW here’s a truly sweet saving for you.
The Twin Peaks choc bar became Poundland’s fastest-selling item ever when it was launched last year.
Under the wrapper, it looked a lot like Toblerone and it tastes like one too. But it costs around £3 less.
No wonder the makers of Toblerone weren’t happy. Poundland has since changed the shape.
Here are some more choc swaps to slash your supermarket spend.
Best for Bounty hunters. Nuts about coconut? At Sainsbury’s, a pack of ten treat-size Bounty bars costs £1.50. But Aldi has you covered with Romeo bars — just 85p for ten.
Get a Twix fix. Biscuit addicts would have to shell out £1 for a four-pack of Twix at Morrisons — still good value at 25p a bar. But at Lidl, Mister Choc Caramel & Biscuit bars are 81p for five, around 16p a bar.
Are you a Snickers seeker? The peanutty classic is £1.50 for four at Sainsbury’s. But we like Tesco’s Nutty Nougat Caramel, which tastes just as good. It is just 85p for six, or just over 14p per bar, as opposed to 38p for the Snickers.
Mad on Milky Ways? They usually cost around £2.79 for a fun-size pack of 18, although you can get them for £1.69 at starbargains.co.uk.
But Aldi’s Dreemy bars are just 81p for 15. They cost just over 5p a bar, compared to 9p. Those little savings soon add up.
Lindt for less. Lindt are the ultimate luxury bars . . . and the price reflects that. The Lindt Excellence Dark Orange Intense is £1.50 per 100g at Tesco. Try the similar JD Gross 70 Per Cent Dark Ecuador Chocolate with Orange at Lidl for £1.29. You get 25g more for that price too.SAVE: 21p
