Many years back I did a review of Daim, it was just a chocolate treat I found in IKEA, it was tasty and kind of like a Skor bar. Today I now know that Daim is the candy prides of Sweden, the reason they're available at IKEA I'm sure. I've also learned that Daim is available in many different varieties, and that it's pronounced D-ime, and not D-ame. With a treat like this, varieties can be tricky, it's difficult to keep the spirit of the original treat while still creating something new.

These Daim Rocks however manage this task perfectly. The Daim I had tried in the past was little nuggets of crunchy toffee, with a slightly nutty flavour. These on the other hand and larger mounds of chocolate with little broken bits of the same nutty toffee. It may not seem like much of a difference, but there is.

For one thing the amount of chocolate in these is much higher than the other Daim I had tried. It makes a big difference because the flavour and texture of the toffee can be very overwhelming. Not that the others had an overwhelming toffee flavour, these however are just a little more chocolaty.

I guess I would suggest that if you love crunchy toffee, you might want to go for the little bites, but if you like chocolate more, than these Daim Rocks will be right up your alley.
