That's it, really. It's one thing I really miss from home. Cadbury's Caramel just isn't the same. Cadbury's Caramello it has to be...

ShelaghTurner Tue 26-Jul-16 19:35:12

Yep. Although I prefer a Moro sad

sksk Tue 26-Jul-16 21:22:31

Moro- haven't seen one in ages!

Boost bar is very like Moro (I think?) Are Caramellos still around? Nothing reminds me of home and being a kid more than Emerald sweets. My dad always had a pack squirrelled away in the car.

Starbar is yer only man. I'm doing Atkins so no Starbars for me. sadenvy

I've conducted an in depth study lasting many years and while a Boost is good, it's not a Moro.

Starbars though. Oh yes!

Some Tesco's have a World Food section and they sell caramello! I love it!

Lovveee Carmellos but haven't had one in yonks. Starboard or a more dipped in tea mmmmmmmm.

sksk Wed 27-Jul-16 19:23:53

Don't know Starboards but I do remember the pink Snack bars. I'll have to check out caramello in Tesco!

Caramello with tayto cheese and onion. Heaven in my mouth.

I thought Moro had been rebranded as Boost, hasn't it??

feckthemall Wed 27-Jul-16 19:53:59

No I don't think that's right Kanye. Definitely 2 different yet similar bars.

KanyesVest Wed 27-Jul-16 20:02:48

But...but..but...what about those boost bite things??? They definitely taste like Moros confused and I haven't seen an actual Moro in yonks.

ShelaghTurner Wed 27-Jul-16 20:22:47

In the blindfold taste test they came out decidedly different. I'll have to get my mother to bring some back on Friday. like hell she will

Moros are similar to Mars Bars.

KanyesVest Wed 27-Jul-16 21:29:16

Moros are similar to Mars Bars

Only in that they are both chocolate bars!

KP86 Wed 27-Jul-16 21:33:37

Maybe Moros are different in the UK compared to in Australia.

Picnics are definitely different!

At home they are Cadbury's version of a Mars Bar. Not exactly the same but nougat, caramel layer and chocolate.

KanyesVest Wed 27-Jul-16 22:11:50

Oh, that makes sense then! I think this should be a pic of our lovely Moro. I really want one now.

KP86 Wed 27-Jul-16 22:30:30

Hmmm... can't tell if it's the same from the photo! I don't think I've ever looked inside. They come in the Favourites (Heroes) boxes and go into the mouth in one piece, haha!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moro_(chocolate_bar)

Irish moro is totally different to the Aus/NZ moro. The Irish Moro is sold in the UK as a Boost, and a peanut Moro as a Starbar. BUT, to confuse you, some shops in Ireland buy in chocolate from the UK as its cheaper, so you get Boost and Starbars as well as Moro and Peanut Moro.

Clear as fecking mud.

I miss cheese and onion crisps, Club Orange, chicken and stuffing sandwiches - Americans freaking SUCK at stuffing - and if the chocolate hasn't been made in Coolock then it can get te! Although I found UK Hobnobs recently. That was a good day.

ShelaghTurner Thu 28-Jul-16 16:44:07

You've just described my favourite lunch - chicken and stuffing sarnie, bag of cheese and onion and a club orange! Mmmmm

ShelaghTurner Thu 28-Jul-16 16:44:17

Or rock shandy

ShelaghTurner Thu 28-Jul-16 16:44:25

Or red lemonade

squoosh Thu 28-Jul-16 17:33:41

Moros of Ye Olden Dayes used to be a very different beast to the Boost. Now they're the same sadly.

But yes, I bloody love a Caramello.
