While I'm usually more of a milk chocolate girl sometimes I do like to venture out and try other kinds of chocolate. Recently following a trip to Costco my boyfriend came back with a pack of 40 medium sized bars of Milkybar which gave me the perfect opportunity to try out some white chocolate for a while.
Milkybar is a pretty popular brand of white chocolate, I'd venture to say it is the most famous of the white chocolate brands. Typically, it is a thin rectangular shape with a picture engraved on it involving the infamous Milkybar Kid from numerous adverts who acts as the product's mascot. The outer edge of the chocolate is a little bit raised and so because I'm often randomly very particular about how I eat my food I usually snap these bits off to eat first. It provides a nice little frame to the image within which is very cartoon-eque and fun looking for children.
The chocolate contains only natural ingredients and is only 69 calories which is pretty low in terms of chocolate. They are a nice treat and not too sickly as the bar is just very thin. One positive of this is that its easy to snap bits off and eat when you want to, but at the same time it does mean you aren't getting as much (or at least it just seems like less) than you would from another product. The chocolate melts really quickly which can be good if you enjoy that kind of eating experience but annoying if you are just holding it as you'll get chocolate all over your fingertips which can make them a bit sticky.
A Milkybar costs around 50p depending on the shop and tends to be about 5-7p less than your standard chocolate bar. This is essentially explained in the size of the bar which isn't that great if you're particular hungry or really in the mood for a lot of chocolate.
Overall this is a product I would recommend although because of its size I only tend to eat them occasionally as a treat when I can be bothered to pick one up at the counter. Currently because I've got a big multipack box sat on my chest of drawers I'm going through them like mad and if you're a real chocoholic especially for the white variety, I would recommend looking online or visiting a cash and carry to get them in bulk - a good way to get over their very small size. They make a nice treat and because they are so lightweight its also a nice treat for children without rotting out their teeth.
Summary: A nice white chocolate bar
