One of the most intriguing was this Milka Choco-Swing. Even though it is a biscuit based chocolate it contains a very European type of biscuit rather than the usual "cookie" ingredient. The biscuit (or bolacha) used here is very similar to a Maria biscuit. If you've never had a Maria biscuit before they are basically the Rich Tea biscuit of Spain & Portugal. You can find mega multipacks of Maria biscuits in most pound shops. They are good for dipping in tea and for making an awesome no-bake biscuit cake called Bolo de Bolacha.
My photos of the Milka Choco-Swing bar look a bit grey. I had to keep the choc in the fridge due to the soaring temperatures in Portugal. I've already had too many chocolate melting accidents in my time so I wasn't taking any chances!
Because the chocolate bar has entire biscuits in it, not just biscuit pieces, the bar felt more like a chocolate covered biscuit rather than a chocolate bar with biscuits in it. The two layers, biscuit versus chocolate, were somewhat separate. It was possible to eat off the chocolate and be left with an almost intact separate biscuit!
Even though the layering of this bar was unexpected it was still a delicious product. As chocolate covered biscuits go it was fantastic. The biscuit is a fairly plain and dry rich tea type of affair but it is offset perfectly against the super sweet vanilla cream layer and thick milk chocolate. I had to bring a few bars of this home and I'm afraid to say they are all gone already. I wish I had filled up my suitcase a bit more!
