Wow this treat is really filled with sesame seeds. I've had sesame treats in the past and very often they're pretty jam packed with sesame seeds. The difference is often the sweet coating really dulls down the flavour of the seeds and makes it into a sweet bar. This one on the other hand isn't that sweet at all, in fact it's a little bitter. I do taste a little bit of a honey (sweet) flavour, but it's not very strong.

This bar is also not hard and crunchy like other sesame bars I've had in the past. Instead it's a little soft, or maybe it's not. It's hard to tell if honey coating is soft, or if there's just so many more sesame seeds that it doesn't allow for the coating to get hard.

Needless to say this bar is a great treat for anybody that prefers something a little nuttier. I would put out a bit of a warning for anybody trying this bar out thinking they would enjoy it because they like sesame seeds. It's very rare that anybody is given a mouthful of sesame seeds and the flavour in small amounts might be OK. However this bar delivers a much stronger sesame flavour and it might not suit all tastes.
