Vegan Week: MILKLESS Polar Dream White - Dairy Free Bar

The Milkless Polar Dream White proudly declares itself as 'Americas Favorite Dairy-Free Bar' on the packaging. It's made by Premium Chocolatiers and is free from milk, eggs, peanuts and gluten. In fact the ingredients list is refreshingly simple and consists of only four ingredients; Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Soy Lecithin and Natural Vanilla Flavour. Sadly, that's the most positive thing you'll hear from me on the subject of the Milkless Polar Dream White, as everything else about this bar is an abomination.

The appearance is promising enough with it's simple lines and creamy colouring. However, it's only when I tried to eat a chunk of this that the problems began. Firstly the texture, oh my days, that slimy, chalky, hard to swallow texture will haunt me for some time. Chewing a piece of Milkless Polar Dream White is like trying to swallow a lump of solidified fat that has been mixed with sand. It's both gritty and oily and I really couldn't bear it at all. My family, watching me eat this, all laughed (the fools) and said 'it can't be that bad'. Well, I had the last laugh when they each tried a piece! But it's not just the texture, the flavour is cold and soulless too, it just tastes like a waxy oil. The natural vanilla flavour that is listed in the ingredients doesn't seem to make any impact at all. 

I had to google other reviews just to make sure I didn't get a bar that had been involved in some freak factory accident. However, the number of one-star reviews on Amazon was enough to reassure me that I'm not alone. Of course there are plenty of five-star reviews too and I'm sure that some vegans who have not tasted white chocolate in a reeeaaalllly long time will somehow enjoy this one. If you've had a different experience then feel free to balance out my review with a comment below!

  1. I've never had this one, I'm sorry if it's rank. :( Still, the white chocolate rondellos by choices dairy free are really good! Had me in awe when I first went vegan. Maybe they'll be better? I've seen them in sainsbury's but tend to get off amazon.

    1. Hi Millie, thanks for the recommendation. I like the Choices dairy free milk chocolate buttons so I'll definitely give the white chocolate a try too :)

  2. I haven't tried this yet... sounds better to avoid it. I second that Choices white chocolate is lovely. I get carried away buying their eggs every Easter!

  3. Very funny review by the way! I love the brute honesty!
