After reading a lot of good things about this bar I was expecting a good show - especially considering its nearest rival the Cadbury Caramel had already score 9.4 out of 10 on the ChocolateMission leader board.

For some reason I found tracking down this bar really hard and I had to purchase it from London Victoria station. **Update during 2008 there were some distribution issues on this bar but these are now solved. The bar came in a 48.0g size that was split in to 6 blocks - it divided up nice and easily.

The Chocolate of course being
galaxy was extra creamy and melted superbly in the mouth into a nice soft, thick liquid. The caramel was similarly amazing and tasted of more than just artificial sweet goo you get in most caramel bars. It was rich tasting and buttery and left a longing butterscotch note in the mouth ... simply delicious. The combination of both the chocolate and caramel was perfect with one not out doing the other. I felt the bar was also really quite substantial at 52.0g (**UPDATE - now only 48.0g boo!!) though frankly I reckon I could eat this endlessly given the enjoyment I get from it.

Overall this is up there with the Cadbury Dairy Milk with Caramel and is my joint favourite so far in the Chocolate Mission!! I honestly can't pull the two apart so I will leave that for all you readers to do below in the comments box below. If you are a milk chocolate and caramel lover you simply can't look past this bar as one of the best mass produced options out there on the market. It is fantastic in almost every sense.
9.4 out of 10
