Why I Bought It:
With Kinder Happy Hippos under my belt, it seemed natural to move on to these, a decidedly much more adult version of the chocolate-covered, cream-filled wafers. And then there's the weird fact that these UK-made candy bars are called "bueno" when I'd expect something more like "Jolly Good" or "Bloody Brilliant".

Tasting Notes:
Take a Kit Kat, hollow it out a bit, pipe in some Nutella, and you get an approximation of what these taste like. Also, just like a Kit Kat, each package contains two chocolate bars. But better than a Kit Kat, each bar is wrapped in plastic so that you don't have to get your fingers sullied with chocolate. You push it up segment-by-segment, like an Otter Pop. Are they better than Kinder Hippos? Well yes, they're not as messy, and also you can eat these in public without letting strangers in on the shame of enjoying a children's candy bar.
