This treat is described as chocolate pudding inside a wafer pocket and covered in milk chocolate. Milka, the manufacturer of this treat, is very well known for making a really creamy, smooth milk chocolate. So my expectations of this treat are pretty high. Fortunately as far as the chocolate goes my expectations are pretty much right on. The chocolate in this treat is very smooth and very creamy, almost too creamy. I might have preferred a little stronger cocoa flavour, but since it was so nice and smooth I'm willing to let it slide.

The wafer is remarkably crunchy and important to this treat. First of all it creates one of the strangest shapes, almost like a mathematically perfect pillow covered in chocolate. It also gives the slightest crunch, and that adds a lot to the texture of this treat. I don't think I would have enjoyed this treat as much had the wafer been excluded.

Now for the one problem, one that I really can't get over, the pudding. Since it makes up most of this treat you would hope for a nice smooth, slightly runny, pudding texture. What you get instead is a slightly creamier (too creamy) chocolate center. For the life of me, I can't make out any kind of relation between this stuff in the center of this treat and pudding. This is not filled with pudding, this is filled with chocolate, and that's not only a disappointment in expectation, but also a texture that could have been improved.
