Milka is Swiss chocolate company which derives its named by merging the German words Milch and Kakao, which means milk and cocoa.
There many flavour varieties, and for a brief period, I even preferred their standard milk chocolate bar to Dairy Milk.
I spotted Milka Raspberry Cream at the corner store for the RRP of £1.19. I have not seen this flavour in Sainsbury's before, so decided to give it a try.
The reason I have not seen in in the big supermarkets is probably because it is a foreign import. Now that might sound like a blatantly obvious statement since it is Swiss chocolate, and a significant amount of our food is imported. What I mean here though, is that it is not in mainstream UK distribution, so while the label on the front of the cover is in English, every thing on the back (ingredients and nutritional information) is Swiss speaking languages. No English translation in sight.
I must admit I bought Milka Raspberry Cream with some trepidation, for while their solid bars are good, I think Milka's filled bars need some work.
Unfortunately I was proven right. On the packaging you have an attractive picture of a bright red raspberry fondant oozing out of it's chocolate shell, followed by a thick layer of cream.
Upon breaking the bar, however, I got a brownish orange goo, and the skimpiest helping of 'cream' you could imagine.
Even though I couldn't read the ingredients, I could immediately tell that not an once of raspberry made it into this bar. It didn't taste of raspberries at all. In fact, it didn't taste of anything but sugar. And that is the same for the cream, which is anything but. gain, pure sugar. The sweetness set my teeth on edge, so I definitely won't be going back for it.
