The idea with this bar is to simulate chocolate milk in a chocolate bar. What you hope to get out of the deal is a chocolate bar that is a whole lot creamier than most chocolate bars. Fortunately that is pretty much what you get; unfortunately you also get something else.

The chocolate quality of this bar is spectacular, the chocolate is smooth, creamy and pretty much holds up to any chocolate scrutiny I might have for a chocolate bar. The problem comes from the white cream in the centre of the bar that's supposed to make it extra milky. The cream in the middle of this bar is just too sweet. Now I know you're probably wondering how a guy like me can find anything too sweet, but in this case I can.

You see, I base the sweetness a candy should be sweet in context. If I'm having a pixie stick then I expect it to be super sweet, however in this case I think rather than a super sweet cream it would have been better to simply have a creamy cream. If I had of tasted more milk and less sugar in the filling I think this bar would have be an amazing success. Instead the folks at Nestle are going for a young demographic by simply loading up with sugar, and that's too bad.
