      A let from the Galaxy Chocolate range

      Sometimes you just need a bit of chocolate! My diet is overlay healthy but there are times when you just want chocolate. I don't eat chocolate every day as the milk can make me feel ill at times, so I do have to moderate myself which can be rather hard when chocolate is involved!

      Galaxy Bubbles

      'Smooth Galaxy milk chocolate, filled with light and delicate bubbles, a new way to melt into Galaxy. Make the most of your special moment... just add Galaxy Bubbles. Milk chocolate with an aerated centre'

      My Findings:

      Popping to my local newsagent to grab a magazine I spotted these chocolates right on the front counter and well I had been fighting the chocolate urged all day long so I caved in. I couldn't help myself, I do really like the Galaxy range of chocolate and this was one I had not tried before.

      This is a milk chocolate that has a chocolate aerated centre pretty much like Aero. This 31g chocolate comes in a block which has 5 sections so you are able to snap a bit off each time. The first thing I noticed when I opened the packet up was that you didn't have a strong sweet scent like you normally do with Galaxy bars.

      When trying the chocolate I was expecting it to be rather light on the tongue like an Aero is but I found this to sit much heavier. With the Aero if you have ever tried one, I always like how light it is and that it is soft. This Galaxy one I found completely different the bubbles didn't make a difference at all and it was like just eating a normal bar of Galaxy.

      For me I found this slightly disappointing as I may well have had a normal bar. The milk chocolate itself was smooth and creamy with a sweet chocolate taste but not as chocolaty as others in the Galaxy range. Another thing I found was this didn't seem to melt softly in my mouth like an Aero would and personally I found it a little chewy.

      The packing in my opinion has a feminine appeal with the rose coloured edges. Other than that it is pretty much standard looking for Galaxy. For me I don't really think I will be purchasing this one again, I was hoping for much better.

      Price and Availability:

      This cost me 55p from my local Newsagents, but I have also seen them in supermarkets if you wish to try one.

      Overall:

      For me this was a let down from Galaxy, I wouldn't recommend this chocolate bar nor will I purchase one again. It tastes rather flat; chocolate doesn't have that sweet and rich taste Galaxy normally has.

      Two out of five stars from me.

      Thank you for reading.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good in moderation

        I will be the first to admit that Galaxy chocolate does not usually come top of my shopping list. But our local discount shop had a heap of the Galaxy bubbles 100g bars on offer at £1.50 for 2 bars. Mars confectionery have been producing top quality chocolate and sweets since 1932, maybe one of the most famous chocolate bars that they have ever produced is the Mars bar. I had never bought a Galaxy bubbles bar but because they were reduced in price I felt I had nothing to lose. Galaxy chocolate was first introduced in 1960 and there are Galaxy Minstrels, Galaxy block chocolate, Galaxy caramel, Galaxy cookie crumble, Galaxy counters or a Galaxy flake to choose from.

        The wrapper on the chocolate bar is slightly different. The normal Galaxy chocolate bar has a dark brown and white wrapper but the Galaxy bubbles bar comes in a lighter brown wrapper that is tinged with a dusky pink. Quite an eye catching wrapper with a few `bubbles` floating across the front and the words `Galaxy bubbles` and `new` floating across the top of the paper wrapper. Remove the outer paper sleeve and the bar of Galaxy bubbles chocolate is swathed in a shiny pink foil wrapper. I feel that the wrapping is aimed at the adult market, there is not a sign of anything remotely childish about this bar of chocolate.

        Unfold the lovely pink foil wrapper and therein lies the bar of Galaxy bubbles. The bar of chocolate has a fluted edge, it is marked off into pieces and each piece is marked with the letter`G`. I may be mistaken but the bar of Galaxy bubbles is quite slimline. Remember the old style Galaxy bar?, a thick bar of creamy chocolate that comprised of pieces of chocolate that were memorable. Each piece was something to `get your teeth into`. This chocolate bar looks elegant and suitable for catwalk models to devour in between changes of clothing.

        The bar of Galaxy bubbles does look appealing though. The chocolate is `snappy`. By that I mean that when you break a piece away from the bar it snaps cleanly. Mars confectionery seem to have created a refined chocolate bar. Bite into a piece of Galaxy bubbles and take note of the thin layer of aerated chocolate that lays within. The chocolate is sweet but I feel that it is not quite as sweet as the normal Galaxy bar. I quickly check the wrapper on an ordinary bar of Galaxy and find that the calorie content is much the same as are the nutritional values. One 5g piece of The Galaxy bubbles bar contains 28 calories.

        Mars consumer care advise that the bar of Galaxy bubbles chocolate is fine for vegetarians. In the list of ingredients I notice that the bar may have traces of nuts, though the nuts cannot be tasted. The outer shell of the chocolate bar is firm and that has to be `sucked away` before you reach the soft sweet layer of bubbled chocolate that lays inside. Ordinary Galaxy chocolate often tastes a little sickly to me but the Galaxy bubbles does not have that effect. In the name of research I have now eaten over a half of the bar!

        I have just checked with Tesco online to see what price they charge for a 100g bar of Galaxy bubbles chocolate and their price is £1. So it seems that I did not have the bargain of the century. A pack of four 31g of Galaxy bubbles bar will set you back about £1.73p and a single 31g bar comes in at about 57p.

        Galaxy chocolate is still not top of the tree from my point of view but the bar of Galaxy bubbles is lighter and less intensely sweet that the plain Galaxy bar. If I find it on offer again I may be tempted to buy it again but I will look for a further discounted price!

          It's still chocolate at the end of the day...

          What is it?
          ********
          Another chocolate bar....

          Special features?
          *************
          This is a bit strange, but it looks like Mars are trying to do another version of Aero but piggy backing off its own Galaxy chocolate. It's a very good idea but in practice I don't think it has worked as well as it should. Normally Galaxy chocolate is so good because of its velvety texture. But when you start blowing bubbles into it, the experience is a bit confusing. The velvety texture is really soft and smooth and when you start putting bubbles into it, the texture is still the same but probably less smooth and velvety, it almost feels like something is just melting...

          With Aero, it's good because you can actually feel the texture of the bubbles when you bite into it and it's very nibbly, and it's all down to using a different quality texture chocolate, something a bit firmer and less likely to melt. Whereas with the galaxy chocolate it's not a very 'structurally' stable material - it's melts more easily and so for me, bubbled Galaxy chocolate doesn't really do anything spectacular for me.

          The chocolate still tastes the same good quality as the usual Galaxy bars, only the texture is a bit strange, particularly when you're expecting some sort of marked difference with this special version, and you can't help but keep comparing it to an Aero. The price is a lot more than it should be as well. It costs about 58p, which is a bit ridiculous, since it's a much smaller bar, with less chocolate, and I might as well stick to the normal Galaxy bar or go for the Aero instead.

          It's worth a try for the novelty of it, and afterall, it's still a good Galaxy chocolate bar, only smaller and more expensive.

          Thanks for reading.

            A velvety chocolately treat with the magic and lighness of bubbles inside

            Well, I am not a huge chocolate fan and do not consume much - perhaps about 1 bar a week, maybe less. However, I do like galaxy chocolate and its lovely, velvety smooth feel in the mouth.

            I first tried one of these Galaxy Bubbles about two months ago. On first impresssion, I thought it was going to taste just like a normal bar of galaxy but as I snapped a piece off, I noticed the tiny bubble inside.

            I put the first piece into my mouth and was met with the outer sides of the well known smooth feel of galaxy chocolate but on biting into the piece of joy, I was taken by surprise by how light it was compared to other chocolate bars. It simply melted in the mouth.

            I could say it is like eating a cadbury wispa but it isn't. The experience is completely different.

            Forget about the calories, if you think galaxy couldn't get much better, it just has. Go on treat yourself. I know I will be having a big one of these all to myself over the festive period.

            A satisfying chocolate bar that is (slightly) better for you!

            I must admit to being a Galaxy girl over any other leading chocolate brand. I like the creamy, smoothness of Galaxy chocolate and with Galaxy Bubbles they have not failed to disappoint.

            The 31g bars are just the right size for a quick but luxurious chocolate/sugar craving pick-me-up. They contai 169 calories so are on the lower end of the calorie/real chocolate bar spectrum.

            I love the smoothness of the chocolate - the bubble seem to add to this, making it really light and airy and giving it a more melt in the mouth texture. It is lovely biting into a chunk and having it melt. It is much less dense than a regular bar of galaxy and rather than distracting from the experience it adds to it for me. I find one bar is just enough but if you are worrying about the bubbles taking up vital chocolate space then just eat two!!!

            There are five chunks in a bar and the bar is sealed in a plastic foil wrapper.

            The nutritional information per 100g is:
            Energy 2270KJ / 544Kcal
            Protein 6.6g
            Carbohydrate 56.1g
            Fat 32.5g

            Advice on the packet is that it contains milk, whey wowder, soya, and may also have traces of hazelnuts, almonds and other nuts.

            I love em! (Which is bad luck for my diet!!)

            Competent, but that's not enough to compete with the Wispa

            The Galaxy Bubbles bar is clearly Mars' answer to Nestlé's Aero and Cadbury's Wispa. As such, I'm a bit surprised that it has taken them as long as it has to come up with it, especially given that Galaxy itself is such a well established brand. The wrapper is a slightly odd mix of light brown and white with pink(!) ends. I believe that Mars think this is a bar for the female market, so presumably that's why it has been given a fairly soft design. (I know, I know, ridiculous isn't it? But you know what marketing people are like...) There's nothing very startling on the back of the wrapper, so let's move on to the nutrition info.

            There's not all that much to report here either, to be honest. A bar, which is a startlingly light 31 grams in weight, works out at 169 kcal. Yes, that's quite a bit less than you'd find in a more chunky chocolate bar, but then it's also considerably less likely to fill you up! The chocolate contains 25% cocoa solids and 14% solids, which is standard for Mars bars (including Mars Bars!) and tends to tilt the taste in a slightly darker direction than the milkier balance that characterises some of Cadbury's products. It contains milk (shock, horror!) but is suitable for vegetarians; it seems that Mars have learnt their lesson on that!

            Enough of this babbling, let's get to the bubbling. So, when you rip off the wrapper, what you will see is a stick of five rounded chunks, each separated by a curve rather than a straight line. (Is this supposed to be "aimed at women" as well? Blimey, these people are shallow.) The smell is very sweet, perhaps too much so, but I have to admit that it did make my mouth water. Texture is obviously important in a bubbly bar, but unfortunately Mars haven't really got it right: the chocolate melts too quickly, not only is there little satisfying bite to it, but the air bubbles stick together as soon as you put it in your mouth and thus don't have as much lightness as they should. It's more caramelly in texture, I think.

            The taste, however, is a good bit better: it's very nice, as you'd expect given that it's straightforward Galaxy chocolate,. That said, I do prefer a simple Galaxy bar, which after all gives you more actual chocolate for about the same price! (Talking of which: my test bar cost 49p in a B&M discount shop, though to be honest that's not much of a discount seeing as Tesco sell them for 51p all the time!) Personally I don't find the Bubbles a satisfying enough bar for me to want to buy it on a regular basis, but those with a lighter appetite might care for a look. Not bad, and I'm happy to eat them sometimes, but the flavour is nowhere near as good as that of a Wispa, and an Aero walks all over it in the texture department. Three stars seems about right.

              Great treat for all the family!!

              Just when I thought that Galaxy couldn't make chocolate any better, they go an pull this beauty out of the bag. These bars were introduced back in February of this year and I finally got around to buying two of these yesterday in Poundland for £1.00 and was eager to give at least one of them a ago, before the weekend was out.

              Galaxy Bubbles have a rrp of 52p for the single bars and £1.69 for a pack of 4, so I don't think Poundland did me many favours with their price. But what the heck, I was still going to enjoy them.

              The wrapper looks identical to the one pictured here so I won't waste any time on that. Upon opening it I am met with a bar of milky galaxy chocolate, split into 5 different portions, and each marked with a G.

              Upon snapping the bar, I could see the tiny air bubbles that were to be the trade mark of this bar. Not as noticeable in my opinion as their rival Wispa, but it creates a much similar texture.

              The creamy galaxy chocolate just got one step better. It now seemed so much lighter than it had previously, although I'm sure the calories aren't any lower!! I still found it nice and sweet and the taste was accepted well by my taste buds, which have previously had a good relationship with Galaxy chocolate.

              Ingredients (cocoa butter, cocoa mass) skimmed milk powder, milk fat, lactose, whey powder, vegetable fat, emulsifier (soya lecithin) natural vanilla extract (Traces: hazelnut, almond and other nuts) Milk chocolate contains milk solids 14% minimum and cocoa solids 25% minimum.

              I am happy to report that these 31g bars are suitable for vegetarians, although they do hold 169 calories. So like with all chocolate these really should be eaten in moderation. I can't recommend them enough!!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A bit similar to our original Galaxy treat, but even better.

                I'm a big fan of chocolate, but I'm also very fussy when it comes to taste and texture. The fact that my favourite brand of chocolate have come up with my favourite type of chocolate - even better. For me, Galaxy is perfect. I like the smooth and rich creamy taste, I like the fact it's not too hard and not too soft. I'm not a big fan of Nestle, although I do have the occasional Aero, and although I like Dairy Milk Bubbly, Cadbury chocolate gets kind of old after a while.

                I picked this up to try it, it was on promotion (already awesome!). I've had my first one an hour ago, and yes, I can still taste it, which means I'm gonna do the most accurate review I could possibly write.

                Now I imagine a single bar will set you back at around 50p, the usual price of chocolate nowadays. You can get them cheaper in multipacks, so I'll advise to check the supermarket shelves if curiosity gets the better of you.

                So bubbly rich chocolate.. can't really go wrong can it? Galaxy manages to retain the taste of an original Galaxy bar, and go one better by aerating the middle. It's soft to bite into, melts in your mouth, and delivers the creamy texture you expect from a Galaxy.

                I have to say, all in all, I can't really tell too much difference from the original bar, but if I had to choose, the aerated goodness makes the slight difference in making it not so hard to bite down upon. It's not the newest concept in all reality, many have come up with the idea long before, but with the taste of Galaxy chocolate, I guess it makes for a perfect treat.

                  Galaxy does Aero

                  ---Tick, Tock---

                  My body, having just about gotten over the fact it lost an hour in bed the other week, has now started to rebel. It has noticed that with the change in the clocks also comes more sunlight. Not to sound like a dirty, rotten, blood sucking vampire but I hate the sun, it makes my skin burn and it makes the coffin I sleep in discolour after a few millennia. Why do I hate the sun so much? Well, I work on a later shift (11:30 to 8) so the sun going away means the following "Oh thank god it's nearly time to get out of this hell hole" therefore giving me something, however small, that gives me an iota of hope. With the sun being out longer, it tends not to set before I finish my shift and as such gives me no feeling of hope at all, making my working day seem horrifically long and unbearable. (As an interesting side note, apparently you can actually get reverse seasonal affective disorder! Who knew?) To what end am I rambling about this? You will soon find out!

                  ---Clink, Thunk---

                  On one such day this week I decided that I was going to screw the personal recession my wallet has been hit by and spend my last pound on something to cheer me up. Off I jaunted to the candy laden vending machines (healthy selection? Hah) and popped in my pound. Suddenly something caught my eye. Something...NEW! Galaxy Bubbles?? "What is this shiny demon?" I asked myself. Back to my desk I ran with my new found treasure, ready to devour its soul. Back I ran to the vending machine to grab my 50p change before someone else did. Then right back to the desk again.

                  ---Crinkle, Crunch---

                  Truth be told the reason I noticed it was mostly due to the packaging. It's got bubbles over the front (reminiscent of aero packaging, imaging that) and the edges are trimmed in pink. Pink. My initial thoughts, if I'm being honest (and let's face it, honesty always causes more trouble so I always strive to be honest) were "oh god that has to be the gayest chocolate bar I've ever seen". I felt the need to text my boyfriend and tell him. I managed to stop myself. The manliest of men may feel a tad put off by a chocolate bar that has "I'm a big girl" written all over it. Most others will just giggle a bit at most.

                  ---Slurp, Pop---

                  The bar is shaped the same way normal Galaxy bars are but are filled with bubbles....almost like an Aero. It's almost like Mars (owners of Galaxy) have tried to rip off Nestle (guess what they own) In I popped a piece of this chocolate, expecting to be wholly bored with the thing. I was soon to be amazed. It seems that galaxy is slightly better quality chocolate than Aero which made the whole bubble thing actually worth your time. Let a square of it melt on your tongue and you do actually feel the bubbles caress you as they die a horrific, mucus related death. Impressive. The flavour of the chocolate is the usual lovely creamy Galaxy that most people will be well acquainted with. Always a plus.

                  ---Munch, Munch---

                  Mars, I salute you. You have taken an old idea and made it decent. What took you so bloody long? In between all this frivolous bubble caressing, you may be interested to know how many calories you are applying to your finely toned buttocks. Mars have ever so politely worked this out for you and popped it right on the front of the package. You will be consuming 169 calories, which is 8% of your daily guideline allowance. That means you can have 12 and a half of these every day before you have to really feel guilty about it. Yes. Yes it does. If you want to know anything about proteins, carbohydrates or fat, well, that's up to you to find out. It's on the back of the pack but is set out for every 100g and your bar is only 31g.

                  ---Fizz, Boil---

                  This last fact and the incredibly girly wrapping are the only things I take issue with. Why? 31 grams? A dozen pennies weighs about the same as that. 31 grams is only ten grams more than that horrific film with Sean Penn. More to the point 31 grams is less chocolate than you will find in the other galaxy bars. They weigh in at 46 grams! Mars, you sneaky buggers! Trying to do me out of 15 grams of chocolate by replacing it with air and then having the audacity to charge me the same amount?? How DARE you.

                  ---Ahem, Ahem---

                  Calming down from my rage, having realised I was getting pissy about 15 grams of chocolate, I have decided that, overall, this chocolate bar isn't bad. I think I still prefer the original galaxy more, but I can accept Galaxy Bubbles in an emergency "we've ran out of chocolate and have ten minutes to live" situation.

                    Galaxy try to make a Wispa/Aero

                    Recently in some stores there was a new chocolate bar, "Galaxy Bubbles" having never tried it, it seemed an obvious purchase, though I was still curious as to what it was. Coming in a mainly brown wrapper with bubbles on, it was easy to assume this was going to be an "aerated" chocolate bar, similar to Wispa and Aero (made by Cadbury and Nestle) though this time made by Mars (using their Galaxy chocolate). Although the normal Galaxy chocolate is amongst the best milk chocolate on the market, it's also the most likely to melt, and when there's bubbles in it it could well have problems. Of course generally Galaxy is milky and creamy with a smooth texture and a wonderful taste, though how will it work with bubbles in it?

                    When the packet has been opened the bar is broken into 5 sections, each is a wave like shape with a Galaxy "G" in the bottom right corner. The chocolate has a smooth brown look to it and snaps quite easily. A cross section (from snapping it) shows that, like Aero's and Wispa's the bar is chocolate packed with air bubbles in it (as expected). So how does it taste? Well it may seem obvious but it tastes like a Galaxy version of an Aero. The taste is smooth and creamy, much better tasting than the other similar products and amazingly this time Galaxy chocolate doesn't seem to be melting too easily. The one big flaw with Galaxy has been that it leaves your fingers sticky and brown, this doesn't. Although the bar is now much easier to bite through it also doesn't seem to last as long in the mouth as the original Galaxy bars which are generally tougher to bite and takes a while to melt in your mouth leaving you with a delightful taste all over your mouth.

                    Overall questions could be asked about whether or not there was a big enough demand for 3 very similar products in the market. Though whether that's a meaningful question or not is beside the point this is the best of all 3 products, it's got the nicest smoothest taste and although it's probably the smallest bar in net weight it's the biggest bar in terms of taste and quality. Although personally I'm not a big fan of Wispa's it's hard to think of anyway other than size that "Bubble" isn't superior. For your aerated chocolate this is now the king.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Another tick for Galaxy

                      I first found out about these when I was working on my till within the supermarket and I scanned one. Well being a huge galaxy fan I was very intrigued at the knowledge of them bringing out another product.

                      The packaging is like a normal galazy yet is a little more girly with soft pink blocks of colour at either end of the packaing



                      ***But what is it?

                      Basically it's a galaxy bar, and looks like a galaxy bar, but is it's when you eat the chocolate that you notice the real difference this has. When you bite into it, it has a softer inner texture; and shows bubbles, hence the name.

                      You could say it's very similar to an 'Aero' which is renowned for it's light as air bubbles, however the bubbles within this galaxy bar do seem a lot more smaller, which makes it feel it a lot more lighter. And of course you benefit from having the delisious galaxy chocolate.



                      *** The Ingredients

                      The bar of chocolate is 31g and unfortuantly thats all that I am able to tell you. I thought that all products had to show you the stats of the product however this doesnt how it, but as with normal galaxy that is high in calroies im sure this follows on with trend also.



                      *** Overall Opininon

                      This is a really nice bar of chocolate and does melt a lot more in your mouth compaired to the useual ones. I would buy one of these again, however considering that they are around 50p a bar, they do go really quickly as before I've opened them :)


                      *** Hope this helps :)

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Would definitely buy more!

                        I really enjoy Galaxy chocolate anyway, and I've always loved chocolate Aeros, so I really wanted to try these - the perfect combination for me.

                        Galaxy Bubbles comes in the typical Galaxy wrapper, with brown shades on it. There is also pink on the edges which compliments the browns nicely and has images of bubbles and a piece of the chocolate. It is a slightly different shade of brown to the norm, meaning it will stand out from other Galaxy products.

                        I picked up a 31g bar for £0.52 - not bad I thought, as this is generally what a regular bar costs anyway.

                        Upon opening the packet, the bar is split into five segments, each shaped nicely with a smooth, yummy appearance. The chocolate itself is regular Galaxy, but with bubbles. I found it really nice - the bubbles meant that it wasn't too much or too sickly and sweet, it was just right and very enjoyable. I was able to eat the whole bar without feeling ill, and without feeling like I'd overindulged too much, but still had enough that it was very enjoyable.

                        Although I'm still a massive fan of the regular bars, I think that I will purchase this more - it definitely just has something different about it which makes it stand out more. It is soft and has a melt in your mouth texture which is very nice, and the crunch of the bubbles of air throughout it.

                        Per 31g bar, it has:
                        169 calories
                        10g fat
                        17.4g carbohydrates
                        0g fibre
                        2g protein

                        Which I personally think is really rather reasonable for a bar of chocolate, with the usual Galaxy being about 190 calories I believe.
                        It's delicious, very much enjoyed, and not too many calories! Perfect when you need a little bit of something sweet to cheer you up!

                        Disadvantages

                        Buy it

                        After reading a review about this chocolate bar on here, I couldn't wait to get my hands on one. I saw them in my local petrol station and couldn't resist. I ended up paying 62p for it.

                        The chocolate bar comes wrapped infoil packaging to keep it fresh for longer. The wrapper itself is the usual Galaxy brown but the end parts are pink. It has a picture of the product on the right hand side and drawings of bubbles on the front to help you distinguish it from other Galaxy bars. The word NEW helps to give it away too.

                        The bar is described as milk chocolate with an aerated centre. Each 31g bar will give you 169 kcal (8% of your recommended daily allowance) which is much less than other chocolate bars, even normal Galaxy ones. The nutritional information is based on 100g of the chocolate, which will give 544kcal, 6.6g of protein, 56.1g of carbohydrates and 32.5g of fat.

                        The wrapper doesn't give any specific allergy information apart from it may contain traces of hazlenuts, almonds and other nuts. It fails to point out that it contains milk and soya lecithins. It is suitable for vegetarians though.

                        The chocolate bar is split into 5 chunks. the packet was easy to open and the chunks easy to seperate. The bar is not as substantial as a Wispa but then again, it doesn't have as many calories either. The chocolate is the same creamy, smooth milky chocolate that most people know and love. It was a bit strange at first I found, as I almost expected to bite into a solid lump of chocolate. The chunks were almost big enough to bite into two pieces. When you snap off a chunk, you can see all the bubbles inside. The chocolate is light in texture due to all the bubbles and is not too rich or sickly. It is lovely if you manage to let a piece melt in your mouth as it leaves a lovely chocolatey coating in you mouth as you swallow it. The chocolate also coats your throat as you swallow it so you get a really nice after taste that lasts for quite a while.

                        Overall, I think I prefer a normal Galaxy bar but this is definitely a lower calorie option so is worth the change. I will buy it again.

                          Mars Galaxy Bubbles - dreamy bubbles inside a shell of smooth milk chocolate.

                          Up until a year or so ago, I used to buy Nestle Aero quite often, but two of my children stopped enjoying it and claimed it tasted different. I had never been a great fan of Nestle Aero, as I feel their chocolate has quite a cheap taste to it, so decided to stop buying that particular bar.

                          Last week. while browsing the sweeties in Tesco, I came across Galaxy Bubbles, which I had never heard of before. Now I really do love Galaxy chocolate and thought I couldn't go far wrong with this. I picked up a pack of four and put it in my trolley.

                          Galaxy Bubbles comes in a foil wrapper, which is coloured in different shades of brown. Unusual for Galaxy, you find a splash of pale pink at each end of the bar and it's decorated in lots of different sized bubbles.

                          On opening, you get that recogniseable smell of Galaxy chocolate. This really is one of the best chocolates on the market!

                          The bar is split into segments, which makes it very easy to break. As soon as you have done this, you see the bubbles on the inside and this bar is really packed with lots of tiny bubbles. It is very attractive looking and I couldn't wait to take a bite.

                          The Galaxy chocolate does not disappoint (not that I expected it to) and after biting through the outer shell, you find your mouth filled with gorgeous bubbles of chocolate, which quickly begin to melt in your mouth. The chocolate is rich, smooth and creamy. It is also very more-ish, although one bar is enough, as it is quite sweet and filling. The bubbles give the bar of Galaxy added interest and texture, but they do melt very quickly.

                          This new chocolate bar went down very well with my kids and I will be buying it again.

                          Fat 32.5g

                          This product is suitable for vegetarians.

                          Galaxy Bubbles are available from Tesco in a single 31g bar for 52p. They also have a 4 bar multipack for £1.69

                          These really are gorgeous and are far superior to Nestle Aero. I would definitely buy them again and will be enjoying them as a sneaky treat myself, rather than just buying them for the kids to enjoy.

                            Go for it!

                            As a Galaxy Chocolate fan I saw these new bars on sale in my local Tesco for 75p for a pack of four bars. Every girl loves a bargain so into my trolley they go!

                            Where do I get them and how much?

                            Any good supermarket priced between 75p and £1.50 for four bars. Also available in news agents, petrol stations etc.

                            What are they?
                            These are part of the Galaxy range of chocolate but are a totally new bar. They are an imitation of Nestle Aero bars in that they are chocolate with air through it and holes within it.

                            Are they healthy?
                            Well chocolate is never healthy as such BUT for bars of chocolate the calories are relatively low. 169 for a bar of chocolate which is way less than 300 or so that you get in a Mars Bar. There is fat included too but you just need to eat these in moderation.

                            What do I think?
                            Open the wrapper and you get the same lovely chocolate smell that you always get with Galaxy chocolate. That is one of the first things that I notice with chocolate - a good bar always smells nice.

                            The bar is split into 5 segments and it is easy to break them apart with your fingers.

                            Put a segment into your mouth and the chocolate is recognisable as Galaxy - it is really milky chocolate which tastes both rich and smooth at once. Like an Aero bar the bubbles bar melts in your mouth, you just need to hold it on your tongue and this is definitely my favourite way to eat this. I find this chocolate much richer and smoother than aero so I think that I will be buying these in the future instead of Aeros.

                            Despite the fact that there is lots of air within the bar it is of a reasonable size and one bar is plenty to satisfy any chocolate cravings that you may have.

                            Overall I think that these are a great addition to the Galaxy range and I will definitely buy them again!

                            If you are a chocolate fan and you like your chocolate milky and smooth I would 100% recommend that you try these.
