Milka Choco-Mix Jelly

Milka are Cadburys European cousins, once upon a time you might have been hard pressed to find two identical products from the Cadbury and Milka lines but since Mondelez took over its harder to find anything that’s not the same!
Milka don’t seem to have the Marvellous range but they do have to Choco-Mix bags which look suspiciously familiar, one is with Mini Oreos, milk and white chocolate buttons and what look like Pebbles and the other is the Jelly. I didn’t bother with the Oreo bag as we have literally the same over here.
We also have the Maynard bag but the Choco-Mix Jelly seems to have more my kind of chocolates inside.
Each bag has Milka Toffees, Peach gummies, a hazelnut chocolate and mini Daim bars inside and is quite a bit heavier and bigger than our pouches at 140g.
Pleasingly I got a decent mix and a good amount for a ‘sharing’ pouch.
Toffee
Quite a thick chocolate coating with a runny, gooey centre. Very chewy with a good flavour that went well with the others. Lovely texture alongside the crunch of the rest of the bag.
Peach
For the first few seconds after I took a bite I couldn’t taste any peach, the flavour soon develops though and wow it’s strong! A beautifully juicy, fruity peach with a good chew to it. It’s a shame Milka haven’t listed who makes these gummies (Haribo or whoever) like Cadbury do with Maynards as I need to buy a bag of just these!
 
Hazelnut
These looked a little like a rolo from the outside but a nice big crunchy hazelnut was hiding in each. The hazelnuts didn’t leave much room for the chocolate but I couldn’t miss the sweet, milky taste. The nuts were nice and crunchy and these were extremely addictive, I’d like a bag of these too!
Daim
Finally each bag has a good amount of mini Daim bars in it too. The almonds add a different nutty flavour to the bag and a different kind of crunch.
Overall I really enjoyed this, it’s so much better than the Maynards bag we get. There were no fillers, just chucked in to get the bag to a decent enough weight to justify the prices – each separate chocolate or sweet was as good as the rest. The bag has quite a nutty, caramel flavour to it as a whole but the peach really refreshes things up. My one complaint is that I’m lazy and I was getting impatient unwrapping the Daim bars. I wonder why they’re still wrapped?
Rating 8/10 (would be a 9 if not for the wrappers!)
