Like many women, I am a self-confessed chocoholic, but I try to limit how much chocolate I eat on a daily basis. Being a regular exerciser, and keen on eating healthily for the most part, I try to avoid gorging on chocolate, although I do have my moments (Christmas and Easter in particular!). I allow myself a small chocolate treat every day if I feel the need to get some chocolate into my system, and so I decided to try out Dairy Milk's Bliss chocolate bar.
This bar caught my attention when I was standing in line at my local newsagents, buying the usual milk and newspapers. The packet contains the trademark purple Dairy Milk design, but is adorned either end of it by swirly gold and cream colours. A square of the chocolate is displayed on the front with a section of it cut out, so you can clearly see the inside of it. As expected on any chocolate, the ingredients, how much of your guideline daily amount is included when eaten, the calorie content, best before date and more are included on the back of the packaging. The bar looked a reasonable size to treat myself to, so I decided to pick up a bar of it.
When I opened the packaging, I noticed that there was six squares of chocolate contained inside. For those who are familiar with Dairy Milks before, the squares are roughly the same size as the squares contained in an original Dairy Milk, but they do appear to be considerably chunkier in the Bliss format. Upon my first bite I noticed how smooth the texture of the chocolate was. It was also incredibly milky, with a rich taste of vanilla in it's centre. On first impressions I thought that the vanilla centre may possibly be a little too rich for my pallet, but the richness is just about right here. It also has a creamy taste to it, so those with lactose and milk intolerances should steer clear of this bar, even if you are prone to having a crafty nibble now and again of a chocolate bar! Buying a Dairy Milk Bliss will set you back around 59p, which is a normal price for a chocolate of this size, so I have no complaints with that. However like any products, prices vary depending on where you picked it up from.
I thought the taste was lovely, and found that it lasted in my mouth for a considerable amount of time after consuming. The bar is also rather large, and I found it was bigger than a lot of chocolate bars I am used to buying, but this did not make it last for a longer amount of time like I expected it would upon buying. I found the taste so moorish that I greedily ate this chocolate bar up very quickly, leaving me grasping empty packaging! I do not regret saying that I ate this rather quick, it just proves how delicious the chocolate was.
The only criticisms I have of the Dairy Milk Bliss is the calorie content. I am aware that a lot of chocolate bar's calorie content is rather high, but I felt that 220 calories per bar was a bit high for something which I would easily eat more than one bar of in a day if I could. So on knowing the calorie content, I have decided that this bar should be viewed as a treat rather than an essential. The chocolate has a lovely addictive taste, so I would warn people who are concious of their weight to take it slow with these! It also contains 21.3g of sugar, 13.9g of fat, 8.3g of saturates and 0.10g of salt, all of which, especially the sugar, are of high amounts. The other point I want to address is that this chocolate may not be for everyone. I had already stated that the bar has a rich taste about it, which for me wasn't too rich that I would find it sickening, but for others they may find it a bit too much. I would suggest giving it a go and finding out how much your taste buds enjoy the sweetness.
I will definitely be buying one a Dairy Milk Bliss again. Since originally tried it, I have had three more, and I highly enjoyed it every time. So next time I head off to my newsagents I think I may allow myself to indulge in the delicious vanilla taste and smooth and creamy textures of a Dairy Milk Bliss.
Summary: Deliciously moorish chocolate bar, although the GDA amount is rather high!
