Similar to the Prime hydration drink craze that swept the nation not too long ago, where prices soared to astronomical figures only to plummet soon after, this chocolate bar has quickly become the new must-have item. 

From pistachio paste to toasted kunafa puff pastry, these choccies have our attention for costing up to R1 000. 

Take a look at how this online user is taking matters into her own hands by making her own chocolate bar:

Social media platforms like TikTok have been inundated with videos sharing the delight of cracking open these chocolates to reveal its unique fillings. 

However, as history often repeats itself with such trends, questions arise: Is it really worth it? Will the price of this chocolate bar have the same fate as the once-coveted hydration drinks?
