Maybe I am just ravenous or craving something infectiously sweet for making the following statement: Milky Way Midnight Bar actually tastes………mediocre! Got you there for a second!!! When reviewing chocolates in general, I am always open minded regardless of price, packaging, or persuasion via advertisements. However, my lack of an open-minded positivity of horraaays stops at the ingredient list, whether the chocolate that I am reviewing is $100.00 per box or $0.99 cent per bar. If there are chemically infused and shockingly dispersed with rubbish ingredients within the chocolate, then that will certainly reflect the final rating. Nobody is paying me to assess or evaluate any chocolate, I have no family working in the chocolate business, I do not own a chocolate factory and no, I do not bathe in chocolate. Okay, fine, maybe once in a while, are you happy now? HE HE HE! It truly is just me and a 1000% honesty. This extensively difficult job is mainly done via devouring a whole lot of chocolate. I know, I know what you are all thinking, that I have the most strenuous type of work in the world. It certainly can feel that way sometimes. I sit down comfortably, wrap my lips in that choco, devour, and what follows - mind, body, and soul in utter meditation…This is starting to sound a bit hilarious, and sexual in some loathsome way? Yikes, how can words resemble so many meanings?
Upon first glance, I really do enjoy the exterior look of this bar. It has a mysterious vibe. The dark theme reflects the “midnight” dark chocolate quite nicely, but let’s be really frank with each other here, the only darkness in this chocolate regrettably stops at the cover. If you are looking for a true dark chocolate bar to relish, look elsewhere. There is no cacao percentage disclosed anywhere on the packaging. To make matters worse, it looks as though someone dumped this whole concoction into dark food colouring and decided to be a “smart-ass!” Truth be told!
As for the taste, superficially sweet to the point where you feel nauseous, flabby, and fat, or as though you have gained at least 10 lbs. in just one sitting. There are several layers within the chocolate, caramel being the middle. Yes, my dear choco monsters, there is caramel if that is what your brain fancies.
Taste time: as the Midnight Bar melts, the first and most obvious ingredient to disintegrate is the “dark” chocolate. To follow is the artificially made white filling that I am going to assume is where the egg white ingredient fits in. Oh, how revolted am I now? Last but not least is the caramel, which is left lingering on your palate. That my friends, concludes the Milky Way – Midnight Dark experience. There are no nuts or fruit within the bar, no healthy oils of any sort, no organic ingredients. I would highly NOT recommend this bar, but if you must, make it an annual habit. This is a heavy, sugar coated pick-me-up type of a dessert that must come with a warning label that says, “Please consume only with water or tea, otherwise, you will see.” Love the rhyme! In the meantime, I will leave you with one of my greatest recommendations as always: when consuming any type of a chocolate or sweet for that matter, devour only alongside foods that have a good amount of protein. It slows down the digestion and stabilizes the sugar spike. Who needs diabetes!

This blog page is dedicated to inexpensive chocolates that are continuously, to this day, enjoyed daily by many chocolate lovers out there. I still happily delve my taste buds into a good old-fashioned, so tasty, and yet simple Mr. Goodbar. To top it off, the cost allows for a much "Sweeter" satisfaction on your fuller wallet!
