Milka Daim Chocolate Bar
Advantages: A little bit of heaven
Disadvantages: Sadly not that healthy!
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.........
Summary: The perfect treat
