March 17th: Milky Way Crispy Rolls

Kcal 130 Fat 6.8g Carbs 15.4g

Continuing my trend of having a tasty small treat mid afternoon, today my attention when browsing the confectionary fixture was grabbed by the delightful looking Milky Way Crispy Rolls.

A 25g pack contains two 'milk chocolate covered wafer biscuit fingers with a lightly whipped filling'. Upon picking up the packet I was suprised at how light they felt, I was careful not to let go of it for fear of them floating away - they are really that light!

Opening the packet I was greeted by two long sticks that looked quite reasonable asthetically but offered very little in any sort of aroma. One thing that was quickly noticeable was the rate at which the chocolate melted on my fingers as i handled the literally took seconds; believe me I was in no warm environment - the office was freezing!

Biting into the sticks provided a mix of textures, the crunchy wafer provided a nice crunch and the whipped centre provided a nice smooth creme too the mix. The flavour department is where this product really struggles though. None of the elements really have a strong flavour - especially the whipped centre. The strongest flavour comes from the wafer and in all honesty it offers very little more than your average supermarket own brand ice cream cone (flavourless!!). The chocolate fails to have any impact on the tastebuds and offers little more than a greasy coating.

Overall this is a product that I would reccomend you avoid. The product concept itself is not a bad one - just the execution of it is poor. The product is really rather tasteless and lacks any potential of relieving any sort of hunger or chocolate urge due to its lightweight flavourless constituants. Unless your really curious I very much urge you to leave well alone.
