Snickers Cruncher

Filed under: American Chocolate — admin @ 5:08 pm

usaSnickers Cruncher is the new version of the traditional Snickers bar.

Snickers Cruncher has not such an intensive taste of roasted peanuts like the traditional Snickers.

Snickers Cruncher has also a more rough consistency (less caramel and no nougat). Because of the crispy rice inside the Snickers Cruncher, the taste is more gentle. The crispy rice creates a very pleasant flavour.

In my opinion the Snickers Cruncher is much better than the traditional Snickers.

The chocolate bar is known as the most selling candy of all times. Snickers consists of roasted peanuts with caramel and nougat, and is covered with milk chocolate.

Milka Chocolate Egg

Filed under: Austrian Chocolate — admin @ 6:31 pm

milka chocolateThe Milka Chocolate Egg is a very funny idea.

It consists of the finest milk chocolate which is formed as hollow egg and filled with sticky milk cream.

My experience was a fine taste of the milk chocolate, but the milk cream was not that good as expected. I think this product is something for children instead for the people who are calling themselfes “chocolate gourmets”. There is just too little chocolate and too much milk cream inside.

But nevertheless the idea is quite inventive, and I think this is also the main motivation for such a creation.

Hmm … I have found two spoons and four chocolate eggs in the wrapping.

Let’s behead it.

I have found a sticky milk cream inside the chocolate egg. To be honest this milk cream was not really a pleasure. Maybe children will like it.

My destiny: now I have to spoon out the sticky mass. Okay, it was not that bad.


Milka Amavel

milka chocolateMilka Amavel is a new chocolate creation from Milka.

The bar has a weight of 160g and should go after the demanding chocolate lover.

This kind of Milka Amavel chocolate is filled with a fluffy chocolate cream called “Mousse au Chocolat”.

Milka Amavel consists of a strong covering of tender milk chocolate. The chocolate melts quickly down the throat. It’s a nice enjoyment, but nothing for people who prefer pure chocolate. The fluffy chocolate cream is too annoying for those.

Interesting designed chocolate bar.

Swedy Chocolate

austriaSwedy is a traditional chocolate candy bar from Austria.

The Upper Austrian confectioner Niemetz from Linz is the manufacturer of Swedy.

Swedy is filled of the finest peanuts cream and covered with savoury milk chocolate.

The result of this creamy combination is an experience with a strong character of peanuts. Swedy is very soft, which is always a problem during hot days in summer. The candy bar melts away very easily. That’s why many supermarkets does not sell Swedy during summer.

At the end the chocolate peanuts cream bar feels a bit sticky in mouth and stomach. This is the only real negative point of Swedy. Some other people may think it tastes a bit too cheap and fat.

The chocolate has a very strong character. The first impression was a heavy taste of cinnamon. The filling of white poppy tastes quite fruity.

The chocolate is not so bad, but for me there is too little chocolate and too much filling. Not really something for a pure chocolate lover.

Baci Perugina

italyBaci Perugina is a chocolate creation for people who like nuts.

The chocolates are manufactured in the Italian city of Milano by Nestle Italiana.

baci perugina

The impression was a thick layer of milk chocolate which was not too sweet. This chocolate is a covering for a core of a nut, nuts pieces and cocoa butter.

baci perugina

The milk chocolate is not too sweet, but seems to be very creamy. I would say it’s only something for real nutslovers. I was not so exicted about it. Too much nuts and too little chocolate is my summary.
