Ed. Note: When's the last time you tried a new candy—just because? For the SE staff, that time is now. Each day for the two weeks leading up to Halloween, we will try a candy we haven't had before, and tell the tale.
I picked Annabelle's U-No bar as my "candy I've never tried before that I'm going to try now because... HALLOWEEN!" because it reminded me of the "Y U NO" Guy. As for why I'd want to eat a candy bar that makes me visualize a sweaty, bulgy-eyed, grapefruit-shaped rage face, it's because...it makes me laugh. My brain, that's how it works.
But there was no laughter while I ate the candy bar. Because it's terrible.
The wrapper describes the candy bar as "RICH CREAMY CHOCOLATE." Nope. What it should say is "DIET CHOCOLATE-FLAVORED FROSTING." Despite the fact that the bar's first two ingredients are milk chocolate and sugar, it doesn't taste particularly chocolaty or sweet. That flavor (or lack thereof) paired with a light, fluffy, and unpleasantly waxy texture puts the bar in the realm of bland diet food. The filling also contains ground roasted almonds, but I wouldn't have been able to tell if it weren't listed in the ingredients.
The U-No is similar to a 3 Musketeers, but it has a thinner chocolate coating and contains about three times the amount of fat per gram of candy bar. (U-No has 17 grams of fat per 42 gram bar; 3 Musketeers has 7 grams of fat per 54.4 gram bar.) ...And it tastes much worse. But that's just my opinion. U-No has its fans; I just wish I could understand why. No one at SEHQ liked it.
And of course, I've gotta do this:
