Why do Oreo cookies take on such magical qualities and become completely irresistible when they are added to chocolate bars? OK, so this Milkybar Milk & Cookies does not actually mention the word "Oreo" but there is no question as to the type of "cookies" being emulated here. The bar consists of a large slab of white chocolate generously filled with dark brown (almost black) cookie pieces. The combination unfortunately gives the chocolate a slightly grey look!
My test of how much my family likes a chocolate bar is how quickly it disappears. We often have chocolate bars which are languishing at the bottom of our chocolate tin (yes it's true I keep a large tin just for chocolate bars in various stages of completion - from new to half eaten to one bite left!). I'm pleased to say that this Milky Bar Milk & Cookies did not make it into the chocolate tin, it was eaten up very quickly. Even though the white chocolate itself is a bit bland, my kids enjoyed it and I certainly did not hold back either! I don't think I will buy it again, but it was nice as a one-off treat.
I'm saving my next chocolate/Oreo kick for the new Milka & Oreo bar. Review coming soon!
