I only came across this a few months ago and didn't realise it wasn't as new as I had thought, it was just the packaging I believe that had changed. I'm very glad to have tried it though, because I'm in love with the toffee version!
The packaging has changed since this was added to DooYoo, in my opinion for the better. It now comes in a cardboard sleeve, with each flavour in the range keeping to a similar layout scheme. The main colour is purple with just the top and bottom bits being differently coloured, for instance, with the toffee version being a golden orange. The logo and brand name is clear to see and it stands out in the crowd of competitors. Inside the cardboard you get the slab of chocolate wrapped in gold foil, and taken together, this presentation gives the chocolate a more special, high quality feel.
Opening this up is easy and it also makes it easier to store by putting back what you don't want into the cardboard, which also keeps it a little fresher inside foil. When you first open it you can smell the aroma of the chocolate and in particular the toffee in that particular variety, which is very tempting when you're a toffee and choc fan!
Like I said, this comes in the Toffee flavour, but there are alsoo yummy milk chocolate truffle and hazelnut varieties, all priced at around £1.39 (Tesco). Toffee is my favourite one as it seems to have more flavour yet still melts in your mouth. I've noticed more recently that these are often on offer, so I tend to get a few in when they are to keep in the cupboard because my boyfriend and I get through these very quickly on our film nights!
This particular bit of the review is mainly for the toffee Bliss, which is described as 'milk chocolate with a toffee flavour truffle filling'. Biting into it you notice just how soft it is and it practically melts in your mouth with a silky loveliness. The bar isn't that big when split between two, or more, people, but for one person you could just nibble at this on and off for a couple of days to get a small taste of this as a delicious treat. The individual squares can be broken off, each of which is a good size.
Aside from the texture being very creamy and smooth, the chocolate itself is the same and has the classic, good quality appeal of Cadbury's. Admittedly I tend to find Cadbury's more boring and a bit dryer than Galaxy, but the fact that this is a truffle makes it softer and more flavoursome.
The Bliss Toffee slab weighs in at 110g and per portion, guided at 2 pieces, gives you 125 calories and 8g of fat. Considering I share this in half with my boyfriend, that's quite a lot in terms of fat/cals, but it's worth it. Plus, eating too much more than half the bar is quite sickly anyway, so just the couple of pieces may suffice to give you that chocolate hit.
This is suitable for vegetarians, but it does contain Milk, Soya\Soybeans, with the possibility of containing nut traces. Aside from that, you get the high quality appeal of Cadbury's and Bliss is, partially due to the packaging and partly because of the tempting flavour, which makes it feel that bit more special than your average choc block.
Overall I would definitely recommend giving this a try, especially if you can find it on special offer. Yum!
Summary: The toffee definitely gets my best vote in terms of yumminess!
