Milka Nussini Cocos - White Choc & Coconut Wafer.
I purchased this Milka Nussini Cocos bar from Monster Sweets recently. I couldn't resist the lure of the white chocolate and coconut combination! It's also available in a Hazelnut version too (see here). These chocolate covered wafer bars are originally from Germany.
The appearance is fairly basic and very pale. The outer chocolate coating looks quite thin and there are lots of visible coconut flakes within it. I usually find white chocolate and coconut work very well together and that's happily the case in this Nussini Cocos. From the start it has a lovely sweet and creamy coconut scent.
This continues in the flavour of the thin covering of white chocolate, which is very tasty in it's own right, and provides the bar with a delicious background flavour of creamy vanilla. There is also lots of sweet coconut coming through in the chocolate and of course within the wafer layers themselves. The wafer is quite soft and crumbly, as it's completely flavoured and embedded with coconut. The wafer layers are not clearly defined between wafer and coconut cream, but rather seem to have slightly blended together into one. It's all very similar to the Polish Nestle Princesa Kokosoawa, another white chocolate and wafer bar, but I would say that I slightly prefered the Milka version, especially in regards to the delicious outer chocolate.
