London Swall'wing: Part IV -- The Flap About Flapjacks
This is an RJ Foods White Chocolate Flapjack.
At first glance, I'm stumped. This is not a flapjack. A flapjack is a pancake. Oh, sorry. I'm thinking with my US-American-raised food brain. The internet tells me a British flapjack is a traditional, dense, oat-based bar cookie.
Secondly, raisins?! I'm sorry -- sultanas?! In my white chocolate pancake bar? Oookay... but I'm really not that into raisins...
Tasting it reminds me of something (I'm typing as I eat it), but I don't know what. It's sort of a raisin-y power bar. Takes a fair amount of chewing. It has a very "Fig Newtony" flavor, if the outside and inside of the Fig Newton were blended together.
Yeah! A thick, raisin-y Fig Newton thing. I liked the bites without raisins best.
And that was a snack review typed in real time. Pow!
