Advantages: Great taste
Disadvantages: High in calories
I saw these one day while shopping in my local Tesco. They were on sale for £1 and as I hadn't tried or seen them before I figured I would give them a go.
Milkybar Moments are a new product from the Milkybar brand which is considered the biggest brand name of white chocolate in the UK. In the past I've only ever seen the small Milkybar bar's of chocolate so I was intrigued to see what these were like.
From the bag you couldn't really guess what they were all about until you opened the bag and saw inside. I'm not usually one who's good at trying new things, especially food related products but I was happily surprised with these little pieces of chocolate.
To basically describe them, they're a small chunk of white chocolate coated in a white chocolate shell. Much like the Galaxy chocolate, Minstrels. In fact I would go as far to say that this is the Milkybar equivalent.
Now normally, I'm not a fan of white chocolate. Cadbury's Dream (possibly the second largest white chocolate brand name in the UK) is a bit too sweet for my liking and I can't eat a lot of it before I feel a bit sick. With these though they're different. The taste is more nuteral. It's the taste we recognise from the milkybar chocolate with the added taste of the shell we're familiar with from Minstrels.
The packaging comes in the traditional hanging bag form that has now become popular amongst confectionary like this. I prefer these hanging bags over bars of chocolate as there's the option to re-seal the bags and save them for later. It also makes them easier for sharing as I found out with my dad who likes this chocolate as much as I do.
From the moment you tear open the bag you're greeted with a sweet chocolate aroma that entices you to pick out the first sweet. When you first try a Milkybar Moment it can be like that test where you see whether or not you bite into one but because they're so tempting you can't help but bite through the shell and are greeted with the taste of white chocolate.
I mentioned previously that I'm not usually a fan of white chocolate but Milkybar Moments have definitely changed my opinion.
There's 500kcal per 100g serving and these bags are 175g. This is a little high considering the chocolate is morish, so you'll have to show restrain or be with a very good gym if you want to enjoy a lot of these! There's 5.3g of protein. 22.1g of fat (all per 100g).
The bag also states that the chocolate is made from natural ingredients as well as giving an ingredient list but I guess it's not enough to lower that calorie count!
These are usually priced between £1.50 - £1.80. I personally would only buy them if they're on special or if you want to treat yourself but they're definitely worth trying if you're curious!
