Milkybar has remained relatively unchanged for as long as I can remember. So perhaps it was time for a little refresh, and we now have it in the form of this Milk & Cookies bar. We already had the milk, so the only new thing here is the cookie, and it has a pretty significant smattering of chocolate cookie pieces throughout. It's a simple but effective spin on the classic formula, and though it's been out a while, I've been struggling to pick one up. Thankfully salvation came on a recent trip to Morrisons, and I could finally try this awesome looking bar.
If you've tried Milkybar you know what to expect here. It's some damn good white chocolate, smooth and creamy, though I'm sure pretty much everyone reading this knows what I'm talking about. But what about the cookie pieces? Well, there are a lot of them, and they add a nice crunchy texture throughout the entirety of the bar. The pieces are, perhaps, a little too small, and some of the time I couldn't quite discern the flavour. The white chocolate is quite overwhelming, but not in a particularly bad way, it just drowns out the cookie pieces at times. Still, there is some crunchy, chocolate cookie goodness to be had, and this bar is a pretty solid effort for a new spin on the Milkybar. Well worth picking up.
My rating: 4/5
