This afternoons Wednesday World food review is another from Poland and E.Wedel. It’s called Ptasie Mleczko waniliowe and is a dark chocolate covered vanilla marshmallow bar.
It’s helpfully portioned into two individual fingers should you wish to share and the total weight of the pack is 50g – they’re actually pretty heavy considering its marshmallow inside.
They smelt good, not too dark though but it’s only 47% so still quite sweet and milky and I could smell the sweetness.
The chocolate coating is very thin and to be truthful some mouthfuls I didn’t taste chocolate at all and some it was more of an aftertaste. As an overall bar I could taste the chocolate but the marshmallow is the dominant flavour. That said the marshmallow is vanilla apparently but I didn’t really pick up on that. It was quite sweet, not overly so but had more of a general/generic marshmallow flavour.
The marshmallow was quite thick and heavy but still soft and fluffy somehow. At first I had to chew it but it melted away to a smoother fluff like texture – like the spread. I’d actually refrigerated this and I’m glad I did as the chocolate coating had a lovely crisp bite to it.
It was so so. Not bad, not great. It made for a change from what I’ve been eating recently which was nice but it really could have done with a thicker chocolate coating.
