MilkyWay Magic stars are made by Mars. Magic Stars are aerated star shaped chocolates, originally aimed at children. MilkyWay magic stars used to have different smiley faces on them which used to represent characters on the packets, how-ever their characters and engravings on the stars have now been discontinued, so don't be surprised if you pick up a bag of these and they have no smiley faces on them anymore. The Magic Stars are meant to be a fun treat for kids but I also enjoy eating them too. I purchased a 33g bag from my local shop of about 43p, how-ever you can also purchase them in other sizes including:
* 130g bag - £1.00
* Funsize Packs (180g) - £2.50
These can be purchased from local shops and all good supermarkets, how-ever prices may vary. I often purchase the funsize bags to give to the children at Halloween when they come to trick or treat at the front door. They often have the fun sized bags on offer during this time.

The Magic stars come in a small plastic bag which holds 33g of the chocolate star shapes. The bag is a dark blue colour but also has lighter blue and white on it. There are picture of the stars on the front of the bag which looks like they are in the sky/space. These are surrounded by lot of little white stars on the packet. On the front of the pack in the top left hand corner you can see that the product is part of the MilkyWay range. The magi stars writing on the front is quite large and is surrounded by different colours which are rainbow coloured. On the back of the packet you will find a list of ingredients and nutritional information. It also states that the product contains no preservative and no artificial colours. To me the packaging stands out as a MilkyWay product due to the blue colours used on the packaging itself. The MilkyWay logo also stands out on the packet as well so you can instantly see that it's a MilkyWay product.

The bag to the product opens easily like a packet of crisps. When I looked in the bag there was lots of star shaped chocolates. The chocolate stars were indeed plain with no smiley faces on them, which is how I remember them. Some of these were smiling, whilst others looked shocked. The chocolates are a milk chocolate colour and look really yummy. I was surprised at how many of the chocolate stars were actually in the bag, there seemed quite a lot. The smell of the stars was delicious; they didn't smell too sweet but smelt chocolate but also had the MilkyWay type smell to it. The smell actually made my mouth water a little so I couldn't wait to try a few.
I put one of the stars into my mouth and bit into it, I could feel the small aerated bubbles in the star as I chewed it, it started to melt in my mouth and the star filled my mouth with a lovely sweet taste of the chocolate. You can feel that the chocolate is aerated when you bits into it as you can feel the texture slightly against your teeth. The chocolate is very sweet and I think it's probably sweeter than Dairy Milk or Galaxy chocolate. I did find the little stars very, very moreish and did enjoy eating a few of these as a time. There is a slight after taste which is left in your mouth which is sweet but this goes after rinsing your mouth out with some water.

I loved the taste and texture of the chocolate stars and thought the chocolate tasted quite creamy. These are very sweet and after eating a 33g bag they did become quite sickly. Although you can't see that the stars are aerated you can definitely feel this when you bite into them. I sometimes leave a star to melt on my tongue and this fills my mouth with lovely creamy, warm chocolate. My nephew also enjoys eating these and loves looking at all the different faces on the front of the stars. I do think this product tastes slightly of MilkyWay a little which makes it taste different to other chocolate bars or sweets. I would buy these again every now and again to eat myself and also as a treat for my nephew as well. I think the stars are really cute and yummy.
