“ Brand: Asda / Type: White „
When it comes to chocolate I love white chocolate the best for some reason! This white chocolate bar costs 60p in Asda and for that reason I thought it had to be worth a try as for such a large bar its a good price I just hoped it tasted good!
The large slab of chocolate comes in a blue paper wrapped with a photograph of the chocolate on the front of it and we are told that it is Asda 'Chosen by you', White Chocolate 'Simply Heavenly' and that it weighs 100g. On the back of the wrapper other information listed includes ingredients and allergy advice, storage details and a nutritional chart is given and contact details are listed. Nice enough, easy to pull off wrapper this is and of course it is informative enough too.
The Chocolate Itself:
Well it comes in squares that you simply snap apart, it has a creamy slightly sweet but lovely aroma to it, is unsticky to the touch and has a very light yellowy sort of creamy coloured appearance to it.
Taste wise, well its lovely and smooth, sweet enough in a very natural way with a creamy texture to it that melts in the mouth. Its made with a lot of ingredients of course but to mention a few they are whole milk, sugar and cocoa powder so you get a chocolatey taste without the visual so to speak lol!
This is nice quality chocolate, that isn't too sweet or greasy or anything adverse at all and I think for the price its a decent buy!

Asda's White Chocolate has become somewhat of a bargaining tool between my dad and me lately. If I fancy a bag of Asda sweets my dad will offer to transport me there in the car only if he gets a bar of this in return. Ditto if he needs his CV writing or a letter typing up a bar of this usually does the trick. By saying this I don't mean that we never do favours for each other because we do but this has just become our way of saying thank you.
The chocolate comes in simple yet effective packaging (not the picture dooyoo have provided). It is wrapped like any premium brand of chocolate in a foil wrapper that can be opened at either end. The wrapper in this case is sort of a metallic aqua in colour and has Asda white chocolate 'simply heavenly' printed on the front in creamy white. The information that the chocolate contains no artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated facts is also located on the front as well as the suitable for vegetarians logo.
On the reverse of the bar is printed the usual storage instructions, ingredients and nutritional values, which are as follows for 100g:
Energy - 553 calories
Protein - 5.0g
Carbohydrate - 59.0g
Of which sugars - 59.0g
When you open the packaging of the 200g bar you are immediately met by a very thick and creamy scent that is truly enticing in every single way. The chocolate itself is relatively thick with each square having a depth of about 1.5cm and having a surface area of roughly 4cm squared. This therefore makes the chocolate, which costs 95pa bar, very good value for money.
The look and the smell of the bar immediately makes the bar seem a lot more premium than the price would have you think but normally this feeling doesn't last when you bite into such products themselves. This however is not at all the case with this chocolate because I must say that it tastes absolutely delicious. The second you pop a square or two into your mouth you are met with an incredibly rich and creamy texture that filters through a sweet yet not sickly chocolate taste that is heaven.
My love for this chocolate is definitely unbounded and I'm certain my dad will agree with me and he is an immense Milky Bar fan, or at least he was until he discovered that he could have a larger and thicker bar of this for less money. If this isn't testimony enough to the deliciousness of this chocolate I don't know what is.
