Tony's Chocolonely has recently toured the UK and has just launched its first advent calendar. It reminded me that I had bought a bar earlier in the year and squirrelled it away to review at a later date. That time was now, and that bar was a bright yellow wrapped helping of almond and honey nougat 32% milk chocolate.

So far, I've enjoyed feasting on the Tony’s Chocolonely Lemon Meringue Easter Milk Chocolate Bar and the seasonal Tony’s Chocolonely Candy Cane & Gingerbread Christmas Chocolate Bars, so I was intrigued as to what I would find here.


The Almond & Honey Nougat Milk Chocolate bar is presented in identical fashion to most Tony's Chocolonely chocolate bars. This flavour receives a banana yellow paper wrapper, with a giant logo on the front, and a green band that runs around the entire bar, reading " almond honey nougat milk chocolate".

The reverse of the packaging contains a brief overview of Tony's Chocolonely, along with the ingredients list and nutritional information.

Tony's Chocolonely Almond & Honey Nougat Milk Chocolate ingredients:
Sugar, dried whole milk, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, nougat (10%) (sugar, glucose syrup, almonds (2%), honey (0.2%), cocoa butter, potato starch, egg white, natural vanilla extract), emulsifier (soya lecithin). Cocoa solids: 32% minimum.

Tony's Chocolonely might be a Dutch brand but the chocolate is produced in Belgium. Sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, and honey are traded in compliance with Fairtrade Standards with a total of 73%.

This bar may contain gluten, peanuts and other nuts. Its sugar content comes in at 51%.

Peel open the yellow paper wrapper and you'll find more information about the Tony's Chocolonely mission printed on the reverse. It briefly explains how divided and unfair the chocolate industry is, and explores the steps Tony's Chocolonely has taken to produce slave-free chocolate.

A chunky gold foil-clad bar awaits, and tearing this off reveals a trademark bar, full of irregular chunks of chocolate (to reflect the unequal nature of the cocoa industry). The most sought after pieces are the large rectangular Tony's Chocolonely logo and the round broken chain motif.

There was minor superficial damage to the top of my bar, and trapped air bubbles around the Tony's logo, but otherwise, my bar was clean and chocolate dust-free. The chunky 180g bar puts up a good fight but yields a satisfying snap when you crack a piece off the block.

Tony's Chocolonely reckons 30g is a sensible portion, implying six servings in this 180g bar. That's all good and well, but good luck portioning out 30g of chocolates from this unequally divided chocolate bar (but that's the whole point, right?)

A familiar buttery aroma rises from this bar, with the 32% milk chocolate base yielding general chocolate notes.

The flavour of the sweet chocolate itself mirrors this, with general cocoa notes and a faint hint of caramel notes, which mirrors other bars in the range that use West African beans.

The inclusion of crunchy and slightly chewy flecks of almond honey nougat adds texture and a very mild touch of nuttiness to the chocolate, but doesn't add much in the way of flavour. I don't get almond per se (just a vague nuttiness) nor fragrant honey flavours, but just a general sweetness instead.

It was at this point it dawned on me that I've already tried this bar, albeit in another guise. Remember Tony's cheeky take on Toblerone as part of its Sweet Solutions campaign? That was this exact recipe. Same bar, same recipe, same chocolate, just different packaging.

Back then, I noted that while the bar was a good match to Mondelēz International's Toblerone texturally, the flavour felt a little flat and a little uninteresting. I reckoned it was missing a certain something to liven things up although I couldn't put my finger on what that was.

I believe that still holds true. It's nice enough, and a pleasant twist on a classic 32% milk chocolate bar, but it's not as interesting nor exciting as some of the other flavour combos from the Dutch brand.

This is a chunky milk chocolate bar from Tony's Chocolonely, blended with crunchy and chewy almond honey nougat pieces for additional sweetness and texture. It's nice enough, and goes down very easily, but the flavour combination lacks excitement.

Score: 3.8

Disclosure: I purchased a 180g bar of Almond & Honey Nougat Milk Chocolate from Tony's Chocolonely for £3.99. I was not asked for a review. My opinions are my own.


  • We missed out on trying this as a Toblerone send up so thankfully missed out on the slight disappointment of having had it before. Still a very good bar (even if it isn’t quite as good as the one with popping candy!)

    • It’s nice enough, but nowt special. I wish we had some of the more interesting Dutch flavours over here in the UK, such as the Christmas Milk Mulled Wine, Milk Chocolate Cinnamon Biscuit, Dark Chocolate Cherry Meringue, and Blueberry & Waffle White Chocolate bars.

      PS) Popping candy is vile!
