Sky Bar Tropical

Sky Bar Tropical is the new variation of NECCO's Sky Bar, which was introduced in 1938. Sky Bars are segmented into four pieces, each with a different filling. The Tropical Sky Bar contains orange, banana, coconut, and strawberry fillings rather than the caramel, vanilla, peanut, and fudge fillings found in the original Sky Bar. Sky Bar Tropical follows Tropical NECCO wafers introduced last year. 






Place purchased: Free sample from the Sweets & Snacks Expo

Number of reviewers: 2


Appearance - 7.5


Sky Bar Tropical has a milk chocolate shell segmented into four pieces. The segments contain runny filling, each of a different flavor: orange, banana, coconut, and strawberry. While the orange flavored filling is orange in color, the banana and coconut fillings are white. The strawberry filling is very light pink. 


Flavor and Taste - 3.5

Orange

The orange flavor is extremely artificial. It reminds me of Tang powder. This one is pretty bad.  
E: Medicinal, not pleasant. 


Banana


The banana flavor is strong and also tastes artificial, like banana taffy. 
E: ISOAMYL ACETATE. Overpoweringly fake. 


Coconut


The coconut flavor tastes somewhat like sunscreen. This is the weakest and most tolerable of the flavors. 
E: Best yet. Like an Almond Joy. 


Strawberry 


Unsurprisingly, the strawberry flavor also tastes artificial. It also has some tartness to it. 
E: Like fruit flavored marshmallow. Fake. 

The milk chocolate and fillings are incredibly sweet. 
E: All too sweet. 


Texture - 5


All of the pieces have a soft, gooey filling. The milk chocolate is slightly dry in the beginning, then becomes a little gummy and chewy. The coconut filling has a few tiny coconut shreds mixed into the filling, which add a little crunchiness and chewiness. The banana filling seemed to solidify as I chewed it and stuck to my teeth. 

E: Chocolate is kind of chalky, otherwise like a Cadbury egg. 

Aftertaste - 5


The aftertaste for all the pieces is mainly just sweetness and the flavor of milk chocolate. The orange piece has a slight bitterness not present in the other flavors. 

E: So sweet! Chocolate a little stale. 

Overall - 4


Overall, the combination of artificial fruit flavored fillings and overly sweet milk chocolate was unappetizing. Also, I do not understand why strawberry would be included as a tropical fruit. 

E: Would not seek out again. Too sweet and flavors taste very artificial.
