Another interesting find by my brother. I had never heard of the Milky Way Caramel before. I can't say that Milky Way is my favourite chocolate. The inner filling is way too sweet for me. It's mainly seen as a children's chocolate but neither of my kids are keen on it either. Having said that I had high hopes when trying this bar. I love caramel so I couldn't wait to give it a try.
This chocolate bar has very thick layer of chocolate on the outside, which is very similar to the chocolate on a Mars Bar. Underneath all this chocolate the inner section of the bar is pure caramel.
There is no nougat layer at all, just one thick layer of caramel. Tastewise it is the same as the caramel in a Mars bar. It is not a gooey caramel but it is not hard either. It got quite sticky to eat and the taste was a bit cloying after a while.
The whole bar is just like a Mars bar without the nougat. It is probably fine for fans of caramel but it just felt like something was missing. The caramel is a bit too bland to carry off a bar this size by itself. This kind of filling lends itself better to smaller individual chocolates. In a bar this big, it lacked texture and flavour.
I don't think it can compete tastewise with either the classic Mars Bar or original Milky Way. Let me know if you have tried the Milky Way Simply Caramel bar and what you thought of it!
