Review: Milka Leo and Milka Toffee Whole Hazelnut (Zack) Bars
These Milka Leo and Toffee Ganznuss bars were recently sent to me by the fab folks at Monster Sweets. The bars both feature a rather nifty quick release wrapper - they just pull off at the end - although funnily enough I don't ever seem to have trouble opening up chocolate bars!
The Milka Leo is usually packaged in a four finger format, very much like a Kit Kat. This Milka Leo Zack version appears to be the equivalent of a Kit Kat Chunky - but is infinitely nicer in terms of taste!
Here, the vanilla wafer is covered in a thick layer of the classic Milka alpine milk chocolate. It's not as sickly sweet as the chocolate on a Kit Kat Chunky, giving the Milka Leo a more balanced and enjoyable flavour. It's a simple chocolate bar but it's completely delicious.
The Milka Toffee Ganznuss (or Toffee Whole Hazelnut) is described as milk chocolate with a milk cream, caramel cream and whole hazelnut filling.
It has a distinctive look, like lots of barrels in a row. It's worth noting that both these Milka chocolate bars are a very decent size, 45g and 43g respectively.
When I first cut into a segment, the delicious toffee scent was immediately evident. The flavour here was wonderfully creamy, with lots of extra sweetness from the soft toffee layer.
As I cut through a bit more, I discovered the whole hazelnut within. Each barrel shaped segment has one whole hazelnut, which adds a lovely crunch and subtle nuttiness. The inner filling is mostly dominated by the deliciously smooth toffee, and even though it's all very sweet, I absolutely loved the overall flavours.
Monster Sweets kindly sent me these products for an honest review and all opinions expressed are my own.
