Milkybar Raisin & Biscuit (Sainsburys)



I think one of my guilty pleasures is white chocolate, but to be honest I can’t remember the last time I actually purchased a Milkybar. It’s not that I don’t like Milkybar, it’s just that it is rarely my first choice, as it seems like a child’s chocolate.
I was quite excited to find this new Milkybar Raisin and Biscuit edition, as I felt that it seemed more geared towards the adult market, and made it a more comfortable purchase. Having said that, the ‘Ingredients’ list on the back surprised me, as it was set out with descriptions of each item, and not actually labelled as ‘Ingredients’ at all, it was called the ‘Recipe’. This just seemed a bit condescending for the adult market I thought it might be trying to capture, so I am a little confused as to where they are aiming this bar.
The chocolate is fab though, there is a wonderful amount of raisins and biscuit pieces within the chocolate, giving a good mix of textures. The raisins add lovely sweet fruity tones, and notably the biscuit is really rich and flavoursome too. Both the ingredients go well with the white chocolate and create a lovely mix of flavours, but I should warn you it is one for the sweet toothed!
The underlying chocolate is wonderfully creamy and rich, making this bar easy eating. This is the bar white chocolate fans have been waiting for, buy it with pride!

This one looks great. I love the mix of white chocolate and fruits which seems to be perfect for summer :)

Me too - the biscuit adds good texture also.

I really like the sharp berry flavours with white chocolate, we need a raspberry Milkybar - that would be yum!

not enough biscuit for my liking...

Mine had a decent amount. Someone emailed me saying that theirs didn't have enough raisin, so I would if they just don't distribute the goodies evenly?

I have a sweet tooth and do like Milky Bar, the biscuit and raisin does make a good combo.
