Milka Daim Chocolate Bar
Advantages: taste, packaging
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.
