I have always been a fan of Milka chocolate bars with their distinctive lilac coloured wrapper complete with a picture of a cow wearing its cow bell on the front. When I saw in my local Morrison's supermarket that it had been combined with one of my favourite sweet treats, a Daim bar (or in my eyes it will always be a Dime bar) then I had to try a bar. Even better when I noticed it was on half price offer. On unwrapping the 100g bar you can see there are twenty four squares in a six by four pattern. When biting into a piece you notice that each smooth milk chocolate square contains pieces of crunchy almond caramel. It is not a solid piece of caramel (that would just be a Daim bar with better chocolate), but many crunchy pieces. I think this combination works well as the caramel does not overwhelm the taste of the smooth chocolate.
Being a huge lover of chocolate, (well who isn't?) and seeing this on offer in Morrison's I thought I would give it a go. I used to like Milka chocolate a lot when I was younger and since then haven't really given it a thought but this particular Milka is very yummy indeed!
This Milka variety contains little pieces of Daim caramel which is crunchy and quite hard, their mixed in well in the chocolate and really combine well with the smoothness of the milk chocolate to give a bit of a bite. The Milka chocolate itself is really nice and smooth.
The bar comes in purple packaging with the iconic Milka cow pictured on the front underneath the word 'Milka' and the Daim logo pictured on the other side, under it is a picture of the chocolate pieces. The wrapper has the calorie content on the front and the ingredients, nutritional value, best before date and a diagram of how to open the chocolate on the back.
The bar is 100grams and contains 530 calories. The chocolate is divided into squares which easily break off and are the perfect size for a little treat, if you're greedy like me then the chocolate will be gone in a day or two but if you only eat chocolate occasionally it will last you a few days.
I purchased this chocolate for 49p on offer at Morrison's but I presume you can get it at most well-known supermarkets. For 49p I would call this a real bargain as most small chocolate bars cost more.
Overall I really enjoyed this chocolate and its pure genius putting Milka and Daim together, I think this is the perfect chocolate for children as well as adults who enjoy the occasional treat.

I'm a huge fan of chocolate; I just simple love it and would eat it every day and night if I could. Sadly I have developed a mild intolerance to dairy products haven't a clue why! So chocolate nowadays is really well and truly in moderation!
Milka and Daim chocolate Bar - 100g:
"Alpine Milk Chocolate with pieces of crunchy Daim Caramel"
I used to love Daim bars as a child but haven't seen them now for years. I popped into Morrison's for a little shopping and I spotted Milka and Daim bar in one! It was on special offer for only 50p so couldn't help myself and had to buy it. I'm guessing people will know about Daim bars but just in case it is like a hard caramel bar that was covered in chocolate.
Opening the wrapper you can smell that lovely, sweet inviting chocolate scent. The aroma is like a rich hot chocolate with hints of Daim bar, you just want to get in there rip off the wrapper and munch away! Once you peal back its sexy purple wrapper you meet the gorgeous chocolate where there are six rows of four chocolate squares totalling to twenty-four square. So plenty to share or sped over a few nights like what I do. (Its hard work though!) Each square also has the "Milka" logo printed on it in.
If like me you like your chocolate to be cold once you take it out of the fridge breaking off a few pieces is nice and easy. You hear that delightful snapping noise as you break some of the chocolate away. The chocolate just melts in your mouth but then you have that lovely crunch of the Daim pieces, simply heaven in a bar. So scrumptious and extremely morish I just didn't want to stop eating it!
The milk chocolate is very sweet when teamed up with the Daim pieces which I know can put some people off being overly sweet. However not me I found it a super combination and will certainly be purchasing it again. I like how Milka haven't tried to over complicate things by leaving the chocolate with that mild rich taste works wonders with the Daim. Velvety smooth milk chocolate pieces each nibble as intoxicating as the other leaving you wanting more and more (yes I really liked this one!!)
Though the squares are small, the little Daim pieces within the chocolate do pack a punch so no skipping of flavour or quality what so ever. I personally think they have given you the perfect amount of Daim giving you a yummy rich creamy caramel chocolate.
Milka do have rather stand out packaging with its all purple wrapper, it certainly stands out among the others in that range on the selves. The wrapper is really easy to open just pull at the tabs and there is even a picture on the back of the wrapping showing you how! The packaging detail contains all the information I would want to see, ingredients, make, contacts etc.
Contains - milk, almonds, hazelnuts, soya and may contain traces of other nuts and wheat.

Price and Availability:
So far I have only spotted this in Morrison's however I'm told you can also find them in Asda and Tesco's so I'm guessing most supermarkets will stock this Brand.
It was only 50p on offer normally priced around the £1.00 mark which I think is still great value for this delicious chocolate bar.
This chocolate is now one of my favourites - pure ecstasy in a bar, I just love it. The taste is amazing and even the aftertaste lingers around your mouth leaving you wanting more! Of course this will only ever be an occasion treat as sadly this is rather unhealthy but a little bit if what you fancy does you good! And it certainly puts and smiles on my face, but chocolate always gives me that happy feeling.
I will be purchasing this again and defiantly recommend this to all that can eat chocolate!
Huge five out of five stars from me!
Thanks for reading :o)

Ah, Milka Daim chocolate! Just writing about it makes me dribble....
Before I start, I admit to being a chocoholic. I can eat frightening amounts of the stuff without feeling even slightly nauseous or putting on weight. 200g per day is probably my average. You might think of that as greedy/slightly revolting, but I consider it a kind of super power. Anyway, indulge me before you judge me!
The chocolate aisle is my favourite part of Tesco (the wine aisle is second - spot the healthy eater!). And my favourite bit of my favourite aisle is the Milka section. Tesco stock three products from the Milka range, and I shall probably review the other two later. But today, it's all about my personal favourite, the Milka Daim. The standard price for this 100g bar is around £1.08. At the moment Tesco are selling it at half price, £0.54, so now's the time to stock up.
INSTRUCTIONS. Think you know already how to eat a bar of chocolate? Oh, read on......
Set aside an hour of quality time, on your comfiest sofa, with a steaming cup of your favourite coffee. Ensure you are alone (Milka Daim is not for sharing). Once in position, spend a moment admiring the shiny, purple wrapping. Then gently tear open the wrapping and savour the luxurious rustling noise as it parts. Catch your first glimpse of the glossy, sixteen squares of luxury about to come your way, each square embossed with the word 'Milka'. Break a line off, and hear that oh-so-satisfying snap. Break your line into its four individual squares and marvel at how the upper surface is totally smooth, yet the underside bears the roughness of the Daim pieces, still hidden inside.
At this point, you could opt for one of two methods. You can simply pop a square into your mouth and allow the smooth, silky chocolate to melt, exposing the buttery, caramelly, slightly nutty Daim pieces. Alternatively, you can hold a corner of the square and dip the rest into your hot coffee for a brief second, before placing the square into your mouth, warm and already melting. Or obviously, you could alternate both methods; it's down to personal preference. Just enjoy the experience.
Whichever method you adopt, you will find the chocolate to be wonderfully milky and silky-smooth, with the high-quality, expensive taste often found in continental chocolate. And the Daim pieces have an unusual taste and texture; they are tiny chips of caramel with a sweet, nutty-toffee taste. They are crunchy yet slightly soft - like old-fashioned Invalid toffee if anyone even remembers that (I'm old). Your teeth will feel resistance, yet the pieces will 'give' under the pressure, then crumble and melt. Repeat the process with each square (or until you feel full).
Now this is not a low calorie treat. A bar of this stuff will set you back 532 calories, and hidden in there will be 84% of your Guideline Daily Amount of saturated fat. So please 'do as I say, not as I do' and only indulge in this occasionally. Scientists believe that chocolate, in moderation, (particularly dark chocolate - which this sadly isn't) causes the brain to release endorphins which make us feel happy. And I genuinely do feel more content after eating chocolate. I actually wish that Milka made a smaller bar, as I KNOW I shouldn't eat it in the quantities I do. When I open a bar, I always tell myself that I will only eat half, and save the rest for tomorrow. That never happens. I blame Milka.........
I'm not sure why Dime bars changed their name to Daim (they will always be Dime bars to me), but anyway, let's forgive them for that, as they have also somehow found their way into a Lindt chocolate bar.
I haven't seen these in many shops and I'm not sure why as I imagine they would be very popular, but the shop at the end of my street always has loads of them. Lucky me!
The wrapper is the usual Lindt purple, with a smaller photo of a Daim bar on it. Inside, the bar is slightly narrow but chunky. Outwardly, there are no visible bits of Daim (DIME!) and the milk chocolate is smooth and glossy looking.
Because it is quite thick, the bar is quite hard to bite into with your teeth, even if you haven't had it in the fridge. This is good as it makes it last a bit longer. Once you bite into it, you immediately crunch into and taste the chunks of Daim bar.
The chocolate, like all Lindt, is smooth and creamy-tasting. The Daim is crunchy and slightly nutty. It tastes delicious and is great with a cup of tea or coffee.
This doesn't taste much different from a normal Daim bar. I personally can't tell the difference between the Lindt chocolate and the normal chocolate on regular Daim bars. However, I prefer these to Daim bars as the chocolate is much thicker, I prefer the chunks of Daim in this rather than the thin brittle bar, and the bar is overall chunkier and more substantial. I would always plump for these rather than a regular Daim bar now.
Thanks for reading.
As I was wondering around Tesco I thought to myself "I could really do with some nice chocolate". So off I headed to the confectionary aisle where my eyes browsed through the usual brands; Cadbury, Galaxy, Nestlé etc and I noticed that the big bars of Milka chocolate were on offer. I had tried Milka before and was quite impressed so I picked up the Milka and Daim bar to try something different, also I haven't had a daim bar for years so thought it would be nice to try it again.
What is Milka?
Milka is a brand from Kraft foods and can be instantly recognised on the shelves from its purple packaging and purple Milka cow on the front.
Milka chocolate stems from Switzerland and is made using Alpine milk which makes it deliciously creamy and smooth.
As I said before you can instantly recognise Milka products from their purple packaging. This packaging typically has a tempting picture of the chocolate itself on the front which will lure you into buying the chocolate, which I must say I haven't regretted.
With Milka bars you will find that you can reseal the packet if you want to, this helps to keep the chocolate fresh. However, it might be that you just sit and eat the whole bar as they are so delicious.
As you unwrap the packet you will instantly smell the sweet scent of the chocolate which will make you just want to delve into it.
You will see that there are 6 rows of 4 squares of chocolate, this is a nice size for a chocolate bar as you can limit yourself if you want to and there is an even number so no fights if you are sharing.
The rows of chocolate can be easily snapped off evenly, I find sometimes I try and snap rows from chocolate bars and end up with a diagonal bit here and there. But this snaps off perfectly making it great to share (if you can handle sharing such a yummy chocolate bar).
As you take a square of the chocolate and put it in your mouth the creaminess of the chocolate takes over and begins to melt. The crunchy daim pieces compliment the smooth chocolate very well.
Although the daim pieces are a bit small there are plenty per square and the balance between the chocolate and the caramel flavours is perfect. After all you do not want too much as you would have more daim than Milka.
If you just want to try this bar rather than purchase the big block I have seen the Milka daim available in normal size single chocolate bars.
The naughty stuff
There is 133 calories per 25g of this chocolate bar. So per 100g bar there is 532 calories. But honestly it is so delicious you won't even care.
I purchased this bar in Tesco for around 69p on offer, normally you can expect to pay around the £1 mark.
This is a wonderfully smooth, creamy and sweet chocolate bar that makes a nice change from the brands that I tend to normally automatically go for. I would recommend it to everyone. 10 out of 10.
-Also on ciao-
I absolutely love and adore the Milka chocolate. I have pretty much gobbled up half the stock my local Asda had this week alone and it really is my preferred brand when buying a bit slab of chocolate to munch my way through. Until recently I thought I had sampled all of the flavours from within the range so I was delighted and excited to see this one and grabbed greedily about 6 bars of the stuff knowing I would love it!
The 100g bar comes in a lilac plastic wrapper with a cow on the front and we are told that it is Milka & Daim 'Alpine milk chocolate with pieces of crunchy Daim caramel' and that it contains 133g per 25g serving and there is a photograph of chunks of the chocolate. On the back of the packet other information listed includes ingredients and allergy advice, there is a full nutritional chart shown, the size and best before date are given and contact details for Kraft Foods (the manufacturer of the product are listed. It's a nice easy to open packet though not really very easy to reseal (but really you have no need to worry about that!).
Well the bar comes in easy to snap off chunks and is a light brown, creamy looking chocolate with the word Milka engraved into every piece. It isn't very thick but the chunks are large and rather wide.
This is a melt in the mouth (and hand if your not quick) creamy chocolate. Nicely sweetened I simply love this because it is so creamy. Within the mix there are lots of chunks of caramel which are hard, crunchy and chewy, if you like Daim then your gonna love this winning combination of flavour and textures!
I simply adore this fantastic quality chocolate and love the sweet and creamy taste this gives off!! Yummy stuff once again Milka people I'm so impressed and can't get enough of you!
Nutritional Information Per 25g Serving:
Of which sugars: 14.5g
Of which saturates: 4.3g
Available in all good supermarkets and if not on offer (like most often it is!) expect to pay around a pound a bar for this 100g sized bar.
A little while ago, while looking at the selection of Milka chocolate bars in a local supermarket, I noticed this interesting entry in the range. I suppose it's not a particular surprise, given that Daim bars are made by the same company (Kraft) that produces Milka, but even so I don't think I've ever tried it before. As the 45 gram bar had been reduced to a remarkably cheap 38p (from 49p, I think) I thought it would be a good opportunity to try it out.
As with every other Milka bar, the Milka Daim's wrapper is mostly purple. It does have rather more of a splash of other colours than some in the range, since the red and yellow shades of Daim itself are quite prominently in evidence at the bottom right, and to be honest I don't think they go with the purple all that well, but at least the garish combination makes the bar stand out a bit on the shelves, which a surprising number of chocolate bars don't.
I regret to say that there's nothing particularly exciting to impart on the nutrition front. The bar will cost you 240 kcal, which is perhaps a little bit high for a 45g snack but not ridiculously so; I could say much the same thing about the 13.5g of fat. As far as allergies are concerned, naturally there's the milk (18%, and 30% cocoa) but there's also hazelnut, soya and almonds, so this is not one for those of you who have to be careful about nuttiness. (Mind you, in that case why are you reading one of my reviews?)
Inside, the design of the Milka Daim bar is reasonably attractive: a fairly standard six-chunk straight bar, but with a thin link running along the middle between them, and a somewhat derisory squiggly design. It doesn't smell quite as milky as the standard Milka chocolate bar, and to my nose it's not as nice, even though it *is* perhaps a bit more interesting than the rather insipid basic variety. The extra Daim pieces do give it a nice snap, however, which though not in the same class as some high-cocoa bars does add a little extra dimension.
It's a shame that it doesn't quite fit together when it comes to taste. In truth I'm not sure that the mixture of the creamy, mild Milka chocolate and rather harsher, crunchier Daim honeycomb-style almond caramel is a complete success. The bar seems not quite to know whether it's one thing or the other, and so the two flavours sit awkwardly together like brother and sister after a big fight. It's not *bad*, but my personal recommendation would be that you stick with the separate bars, since the two tastes are just too different to meld with really satisfying results.
Milka have a good range of chocolate products available and one of the more popular ranges has been their selection of 100g chocolate bars. With the Milka Alpine Milk 100g variety, made with alpine milk and chocolate, being one of the better known bars. Having tried and liked those, I was surprised and very pleased to see that Milka also had a 'Dime' bar variety.
Well it used to be called Dime, now its called Daim, no idea why and maybe some one can enlighten me. Perhaps the name change is easier to say, when reading it as Daim, but I digress.
The 100g Milka Daim Chocolate Bar looked very interesting indeed and was just begging to be purchased. Reluctantly....sort of, kind of, ok rather keenly, a Milka Daim bar or two made its way into the hand basket I had with me, then threw itself onto the conveyor belt and shouted at me to pay the nice checkout assistant. At the time the bars were 98p per bar, regardless of variety, but since then I have seem then sneakily sitting about on supermarket shelves for half that, at just 49p.
The Milka Daim bar differs from the original Daim bar, as instead of being one big crunchy Daim filled mass, it contains lovely little crunchy pieces of the almond caramel. In fact 20% of the bar is made up with these addictive little Daim pieces and then encased in glorious creamy alpine milk chocolate.
The bars do also contain nuts, so will not suit any one with a nut allergy .
A mix of sugar, cocoa butter and cocoa mass, are blended with vegetable oils, milk fat and butter. Almonds and hazelnut paste are also added along with sweetened condensed skimmed milk and even a hint of salt, for that moorish salty after taste. Milka says that their chocolate contains at least 30% cocoa solids as a minimum and milk solids at 18% minimum.
The crunchyness of the Daim bars' almond caramel pieces, combined with the creamy light Milka chocolate is a real winner. The salty after taste once you have crunched away on the Daim pieces is so good that you just have to munch away on another square of chocolate. Its not your fault, its theirs, they make you do it.
For those of you that want to try some of the other chocolate bars in the range, why not check out the yummy Milka Alpine Milk Caramel (double filled) 100g bar with its scrumptious caramel flavoured filling. Or how about a bite of the Milk chocolate with Alpine milk variety, which is filled with a 50% cream flavour filling.
I recently noticed that they do a Milka Happy Cows 100g bar which is an alpine milk bar covered with splashes of creamy white chocolate, not to mention the Milka Hazlenut bar. Which ever bar you choose is up to you, but I can say that the Daim bar is smashing. So much choice, so many calories. Oh dear Milka, you are such a naughty lot.
==Milka Chocolate with Daim Bar===
After a dash to Morrison's last night for chocolate and a DVD to cheer myself up I saw this Milka bar of chocolate on a special offer. I only ever really eat this chocolate when someone brings it into work and I don't think I have ever bought a bar myself.
The 100 gram bar was on a half price offer for 59 pence, which compared to all the other chocolate bars of this size was very reasonable so for that reason, I snapped two bars up.
The chocolate bar wrapping is rather good and makes you known that there is the Daim bar contained within as the red and blue Daim colourings and logo are splashed over half the front of the wrapper. The other colourings are a light purple and white colours and this all looks really good together.
The smell of the chocolate when I up wrapped the bar was very nice but not overly strong. The sweet aroma was definitely there and a slight whiff of the caramel from the Daim bar was noted. To look at the bar of chocolate looked just like any other. The lovely brown colourings of milk chocolate but from the outside you can't seen the pieces of Daim bar. Each square of chocolate has "milka" written on it and the pieces are of a nice size. There are four squares width ways and six squares length ways so for the price it is definitely a good sized bar.
The taste of the chocolate and Daim is very nice and does work well together. The milk chocolate is very smooth and creamy where as the caramel pieces of the Daim bar give it all an added crunch and sweetness that does give it an added bonus.
The pieces of Daim are rather small but I feel just the right size so that you are not getting them stuck in your teeth or have to do too much crunching.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this chocolate bar and for the price found it to be well worth the money and more. I would probably pay out for the full price if again I was in a chocolate emergency and needed a deliciously sweet and creamy tasting chocolate bar.
Per 100 gram (whole bar)
17 grams of saturated fat!
I think a score of 5 out of 5 stars and a very high recommendation.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
My dad introduced me to the world of Milka chocolate a few months back as he'd noticed it in Sainsburys on offer and brought a few bars home. I was impressed by how chocolatey and rich it tasted without the cheapness that comes with alot of chocolate these days.
Well browsing in Tesco the other day I noticed they had Milka bars on offer at 50p for a 100g bar, only I noticed a different one Milka and Daim. This particular chocolate is Alpine Milk chocolate with pieces of Crunchy Daim Caramel. Daim is a chocolate bar itself, which used to be called Dime, it's a thin chocolate with a hard centre of caramel which has an acquired taste and texture in my opinion.
Milka chocolate bars come in a lovely pale purple wrapper and clearly say Milka in milky white writing with the Milka cow standing small, but proudly underneath. This bar is a bit more jazzy though with the deep reds and bright yellows from the Daim bar advertised on one side, so even if you hadn't seen Daim bars before this chocolate bar looks a bit more exciting and appealing on a shelf than most.
This 100g bar contains;
Milka chocolate bars come in sqaure segments, it's not a very chunky bar but it's enough believe me. As I bit into it I was pleased to taste that stunningly smooth and creamy chocolate bar but I soon bit into a hard and sweet piece of caramel it didn't half funk up the texture a bit. Milka bars are extremely soft chocolate bars that literally melt in your mouth, they are so tasty and creamy and really excude chocolate excellence on your tastebuds in my opinion yet they are sold so cheaply in most supermarkets when on offer anyway. I still had this sumptuously soft chocolate bar melting in my mouth but the pieces of caramel just excited the flavours and textures a bit giving me some hard sweetness, it was almost naughty like it wasn't meant to be there. It soon smoothed down though as I bit into them and their sweetness mixed in with the deep, rich Milka chocolate. I couldn't have one of these all the time mind as the bars are large, and the chocolate is rich but as a treat this was different and the textures and flavours worked well together within the chocolate. Definitely one to try!
When it comes to trying something different it's usually great to try something that is "similar yet different" a combination of something you know you like and something else. Of course it can fail and be hugely disappointing disappointing at times, though it can also be brilliant. So when it came to the Milka Daim Chocolate Bar it was expected to be something special after all it was claiming to be "Daim" (formerly "Dime") related and Daim's were generally something special as far as the chocolate world was concerned. In fact Daims (which seem to forever be getting more difficult to find) are unique on the shop shelves due to their hard almond centre and their overall design (a flat bar that sees a solid almond "toffee" covered completely in milk chocolate), but how would "bits" of this in a whole new bar work?
Of course you then have the other part, the Milka chocolate bar which are generally quite a light and milky tasting chocolate which is rather nice but not on the level of Kinder. Although it's nice, many will be buying the bar on the fact it contains on the packaging the Diam logo and the mention of one of the popular classics of the chocolate bar world. The bar is sold in several sizes, the one I have is the 45g bar which contains 6 individual pieces in the bar, though the bar is sold in the much bigger family sized bar. Across the 6 pieces is what looks like a "wave" smoothly across the light brown of the chocolate.
Although the pieces look to be easy to snap apart they do put up a bit of a fight, as they do when you eat it. The hard almond parts of a Daim being instantly recognisable in both texture and taste which the chocolate is quickly forgotten in place of the almond. Although sharp, sweet and delightful almond is crunchy you can (if your patient) let the chocolate melt in your mouth and leave small almond bits that can after a while of being sucked, become quite chewy and enjoyable. The milk chocolate is accept on it's own though it genuinely is difficult to remember your eating a chocolate bar with Daim bits and it seems more and more like it's Daim bit's with chocolate, which is superb.
A brilliant concept fantastically done to show that you can take a fantastic part of a product and add it to something else to make a great product.

Nutritional Information (per 45g bar)
Milka chocolate bars have come over to the UK and have been sold extremely cheaply ever since their arrival, everytime i walk down the chocolate isle i see them advertised for 50p and they have been at this price for some time. I havent tried all the flavours but the chocolate in milka is extremely creamy and is a wonderful treat to eat after a hard days work or just when your are relaxing, the texture of the chocolate will take your breath away and leave you wanting more. Whenever i buy a bar of this delicious chocolate the whole family seems to steal it off me bit by bit so it is great that it is being sold in 100 gram bars at such a cheap price. A small dairy milk would cost you more than this huge bar so get them while they are on offer as they are one of the best chocolates out in todays market.
All the range of Milka bars are currently on offer at Sainsburys at half price, so this bar cost me 43p last week, which I thought was a real bargain, they usually cost 97p, which for a bar of chocolate this size (100g) is a really reasonable price.
This particular bar is called Milka Daim, which just means it is regular milka chocolate with loads of little dime bar pieces in it.
The bar of chocolate is very thin, it's not huge chunks like cadburys, but I think it makes a nice change, as you don't feel like you have eaten a huge of amount of chocolate. I thought as it was such a cheap price that there wouldn't be many dime bar bits in there, but there were loads, as you break it up, they are clearly visible, and you get loads with every bite.
The chocolate is actually very smooth and silky, and melts in your mouth. It's extremely creamy and actually really nice for such a cheap bar.
The packet is really easy to open and it says it is resealable, but it doesn't last long enough with us to actually see if that works!
It says on the packet that 100g of this chocolate contains 30g of fat, so it's pretty bad on the health side but as long as you don't eat too much of it all the time, as a treat it's great.
I really enjoyed this, if you like dime bars then this is a great option, especially at the moment when it's half price, what a bargain.
I've got such a sweet tooth and I'm quite suprised I haven't turned into a giant chocolate bar yet. I had always fond memories of my friends dad bringing our school class a bar of milka back from France every summer so I was happy when UK shops started to sell it. I love its creamy texture and taste and the lovely richness each square had. I was shopping recently and noticed the big 100g bars of Milka Daim were being sold for 50p so I grabbed a few and hurried off to buy them.
I do really like Dime/Daim Bars and cakes (especially Ikea's) but sometimes found them a little bar too hard and crunchy so I was really excited at the thought of Dime combining with Milka. Milka always have resealable packaging to keep the product fresh which I love as 100g should not be eaten at once, unless you are sharing it.
the chocolate itself when unwrapped looked like an ordinary Milka bar. As soon as I put the first square of chocolate into my mouth it melted a little to that rich creamy taste I know and love. Then as I bit into it a little it revealed that crunchy brittle Dime taste I also loved.
It was amazing and so much better than a standard Dime bar as the Milka brought the extra softness needed with a creamier thicker layer of chocolate and the Dime added that extra crunchy and tasty dimension that Milka needed ot make it that extra bit special. I was in heaven.
Roughly 25g has 133 calories but it is soooo worth it. i like to eat 3 squares a day which is a nice little eat and helps to span out how long I have the bar for.
My new favourite chocolate, move out the way Cadburys!!!!
