I wondered if these were just novelty ideas! So many creative ways to make a chocolate bar.
But how would they taste? At +$2 a bar, I decided to pick up two different bars over a weekend to indulge in.
The First Taste Test
I decided to get Reg the Raspberry Creme and I got the Caramel, which at the time I thought was chocolate orange. Doh!
Reg found his very rich and enjoyed it over a few days. I found the raspberry to be quite fragrant but not necessarily natural in flavour. The caramel was very sweet and I enjoyed it over the weekend too.
When it comes to the milk chocolate, yes, pretty darn high quality for a chocolate that is usually shunned by the foodie elite. I happen to LOVE milk chocolate.
The Second Taste Test
I was impressed enough to go out and buy another bar to test. I got the Choqsplash Hazelnut since I love chocolate and hazelnut together.
I can tell you that it was not easy breaking off a piece of the chocolate without breaking open one of those 3D pouches of hazelnut goo.
But I did!
And then of course I had to crack it open so you could see the hazelnut liquid ooze from its chocolate pouch.
I personally did not notice an extreme hazelnut flavour which was a shame. Reg did, he is more sensitive to flavours than I am. I was hoping for more of a flavour bang. It was a little too subtle for me.
Still, I love the milk chocolate and I can see how Milka has become so beloved. I just do not know how it has been in my foodie blindspot for so long. I can not wait to explore more flavours and silly approaches to chocolate. Milka really captures a fun and child-like approach to chocolate which really appeals to this adult foodie. Clever!!!
I give this product four out of five wooden spoons.
