A Galaxy Cake Bar consists of a chocolate sponge cake topped with chocolate cream and covered in smooth and creamy milk chocolate. I guess they could be considered a snack but only as an unhealthy choice. The bar is exceptionally modest in terms of sweetness and will not overpower the taste buds. The cake compartment is reasonably light but not over delicate and crumbles at the lower end of the scale. The melt factor on the other hand is impressive. The creamy layer does persist longer than the cake and chocolate cover. One bar is enough to diminish the hunger pangs for an hour or so. Eating one in public is generally not embarrassing but neither does one ... Read the complete review

As the girlfriend is a big fan of Galaxy chocolate, various bars frequent the house regulary, and I've often wondered, why is it called Galaxy still? I cannot see the connection between a giant universal spiral of planets and stars, and a silky smooth and creamy milk chocolate bar? 'Silk' or 'Indulge' would have been a better title (It's called Dove in the states, and isn't the same chocolate either!), but as Mars produce it, the name stays along with the other flagship brands like Milky Way. I chanced upon the McVities cake bar variation of Galaxy, and thought I'd give them a try. Here are my thoughts on McVities Galaxy Cake Bars. --Do they Know About This ... Read the complete review

I was looking to buy some cakes over the weekend and came across Galaxy Cake Bars. They are made by McVities and come in a brown packet with a picture of a half eaten chocolate cake bar on the front. Inside the packet, you are met with a cardboard tray with 5 individually wrapped cakes. They usually retail at about £1.35 but I got mine on offer by buying 2 packs for £2.00. Quite a bargain I thought. Upon opening the wrapper you are met with a chocolate covered sponge cake, topped with lots of real galaxy milk chocolate cream. Each cake weighs in at 154 calories, along with 13.7g of sugar. There is also 0.1g of salt along with 8.8g of fat. ... Read the complete review

I would definitely say that I am a cake person over chocolate. Don’t get me wrong, I love my chocolate but there is something nicer about eating cake, I feel more fulfilled and less sick. I love all kinds of Cake but my favourites are when classic chocolate bars go into cake form. The Bounty cake bars are nice as are many other buts I love the Galaxy Cake bars. The Galaxy cake bars are quite easy to identify. They come in a multi pack of 5 and are in the usual Galaxy colours of a light brown swirl and then the McVities logo. When McVities do it you know it has to be good. The packaging is simple but I think classy. So in the pack of 5 I reach for ... Read the complete review

I like chocolate. I admit it. There isn't much (or any I can think of) chocolate that I don't like, so when a colleague from work offered me a Galaxy cake bar, I wasn't going to turn it down. The Galaxy cake bars come in a pack of 5, or a great value 10 pack, and the wrapper is the familiar golden brown colour similar to the Galaxy chocolate bar. Across the front is says Galaxy Cake bars , and in smaller writing it informs you they have a smooth cream centre, covered in real Galaxy chocolate. It says that this is a 10 pack and that they are individually wrapped. Above the Galaxy banner is a small McVities logo, and the information that it is baked by ... Read the complete review
