Today's Review: Primark Strawberry Milk Shakes

Looks like Primark are doing their own sweets now, fancy that. Well, they could not be Primark, but they were in Primark, and there are no other distinguishing brands on the packaging, so I'll go with that. Most of the selection is the usual sweetie fodder, but these ones seemed pretty interesting. It's been tough to get hold of the proper, powdery milk bottles over the years, we've normally had to settle for the squishy ones. But these not only have a nice coating of powder, but they're also strawberry flavoured, so I figured they'd be a hit.

They're powdery alright, a little too powdery though, the texture is a little off compared with the good old fashioned milk bottles. Underneath the milk bottle itself has that nice soft, but not too squishy, composition, but the flavours contained therein leave a little to be desired. The milky taste is present, and it's pretty nice, but it's pretty overshadowed by a strawberry flavour that isn't particularly authentic or nice. It adds a little bit of fruitiness, sure, but I wouldn't say it's a very welcome one. Combine that with the powdery exterior, and these sweets are a little dry and underwhelming. There's some nice stuff in here, but it's taken over by the not so nice. Think I'll stick with the more generic sweets.

My rating: 2/5
