8 reasons why the Purple Snack is the ultimate Irish treat

‘Tis lovely!

LAST WEEK, WHEN we posted a controversial hierarchy of Irish chocolate bars, there was indignation that the Purple Snack was ranked in mid-tier.

Some of us and towers also thought that the Purple Snack was misrepresented – and Purple Snack, if you wouldn’t mind, we’d like to make it up to you. You are beautiful and we love you. Here’s why.

1. Dairy Milk chocolate just tastes better wrapped around a nice biscuit

2. And even on the rare occasion you get a biscuitless Snack, it’s still top notch

3. It’s probably the ultimate accompaniment to a cup of tea

Biscuits are nice. Pastries are great. But wouldn’t you trade them both for a Purple Snack?

4. Or a post-lunch treat

Meal preps for work tomorrow! Its hassle doing them in the night when I get home from the gym I have no time to chill out after work but they must be done ! :) Its all about the nutrition if you want to grow. You can lift weights all week but if your not eating the right stuff you will starve the muscles and they wont get any bigger! Putting time into my meals has made a big difference in my training and my gains. Nutrition is Key #nutrition #gains #food #protein #eatingright #bodybuilding #powerlifter #grow #weightlifting #goodcalories #gym #aesthetics #physique #healthy #body #mind #pasta #tuna #chicken #all #day #every #day #bit #of #fruit #wouldnt #go #astray #PurpleSnack Source: Instagram/_hallinan

It’s so much smaller than an actual bar of chocolate, so you’re actually making healthy choices!

5. Nibbling all the chocolate off first prolongs the joy

And doing it without breaking the biscuit is a real skill that you SHOULD be able to put on your CV.

6. But sometimes you have to just horse straight into it

8. And you are absolutely right, Cadbury. ‘Tis lovely
