MilkyWay Simply Caramel Bar


Remember my trip to CVS where I said I found some newer varieties of old favorites, Sisters and Brothers?  Well today I'm going to review the second of these three bars for you all: the MilkyWay Simply Caramel bar.  MilkyWays traditionally have what in them?  Chocolate coating, nougat, and some caramel, right?  So this then should be the same bar without the nougat.  Some folks like that nougat stuff in candy bars and chocolates, some don't. I could take it or leave it personally because I'm focused on the Chocolate, obviously.



I broke the bar open, setting aside the larger part for someone else to have as well -- Moderation at work -- and found it was as advertised: only caramel inside and no nougat.  As you can see in the photo below the caramel is very thick and it was very sticky too, a bit of a challenge to pull apart neatly.  The bar looks flatter than the regular MilkyWay and it is much stickier as well.  The caramel is both sweet and tangy but it really overwhelms the milk chocolate coating.  For that reason alone I think I prefer the regular MilkWay.



Who has tried this MilkyWay Simply Caramel bar before?  What did you think of it?

Mass produced candy seems to go through phases of "let's try X" and not all them are winners. Thanks for reading and commenting, Choc chip uru!

Are you crazy...I love these...and now I can't even find them...for people who are crazy about caramel, I think they would love them...

I'm sure they might, Mrslancini, but we're The Chocolate Cult and we have to judge things by their chocolate and I stick by my experience that the milk chocolate is overwhelmed by the caramel here.

Thank you for reading and commenting. I hope you look around more.
