Fancy a Cheese-and-Onion Flavour Chocolate Bar?
Metro ^ | Wednesday 8 May 2013

Many people have said it is wrong but that hasn’t stopped Irish food company Tayto from making a cheese and onion flavoured chocolate bar.

The firm has already sold out of the 100,000 bars it initially produced in response to requests from people on social networks.

Tayto boss Eamon Eastwood admitted customers had reacted strongly to the snack, which has a flavour normally associated with crisps.

‘I couldn’t believe the reaction,’ he said.

‘It went off the Richter scale with almost half a million impressions.’

The chief executive described the bar as ‘crunchy chocolate and then a lingering taste of cheese of onion’.

Unsurprisingly the treat has received a mixed response.

@bfdetiger wrote on Twitter: ‘Just had my first taste of the Tayto (cheese and onion crisp) Chocolate Bar, very nice actually :)’

Others on the social network were less enthusiastic.

@ErnieNinja added: ‘In Ireland they made a chocolate bar cheese and onion flavoured! I just lost my appetite.’

Sounds like the kind of flavor combo you’d come up with while falling-down drunk.

Try a piece of bacon with a slice of pumpkin pie. Yum!

Coarse chop Blue Diamond Bold Habanero BBQ flavored almonds and stir it into melted chocolate chips. Yum, again!

I’m finicky when it comes to chocolate. I DO NOT like white chocolate.

But I’d try cheese, onion, and chocolate. Yes I would.

If you like dark chocolate....I don't think *anything* beats:

Lake Champlain's: Organic Dark Spicy Aztec Chocolate Bar They are kinda hard to find....I get mine at Whole Foods.

.........pumpkin seeds, hot cayenne pepper, and fragrant cinnamon in every nibble. MMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Uhhhh no. Bacon and chocolate I’ve had, and it was good. Cheese and chocolate works, Swiss Colony used to have a chocolate cheese fudge type thing that was wonderful. But what is this current trend to mix everything? Broccoli and marshmallows, pumpkin and tomatoes, hide cauliflower in everything...truly nauseating combinations promoted as ‘new’ and ‘gourmet’. Please! I like dessert with dinner,not dessert IN dinner.

I haven’t tried them together. It’s possible I’d like them: it appears some people have.

The Irish are not particularly famous for their fine cuisine.
