Kinder Bueno White Chocolate
We created our international snack blog so we could spend time taking an in-depth look at the best snacks from around the world. So far we have trekked though 31 different countries and reviewed their best chocolates, chips, cookies, candies, and cakes. We’ve started to offer some of these delicious foreign snacks in our international snack store. Each month this year we are expanding our store to include a new country and their best snacks. So far we’ve included British Snacks and American Snacks. Next month we will add German Snacks for sale online. Today we are taking a look at a German Snack that will be included in our online store.
The snack under review today is the Kinder Bueno White. We absolutely love the Kinder brand and I personally have enjoyed their treats since I first sample the Kinder Surprise as a child living in Europe. Unfortunately the Kinder Surprise is not allowed in the US, so we keep trying to fill this void with other Kinder Brand Snacks. Not too long ago we did a review of the Kinder Hippo Biscuits. As you can imagine, we loved them too! Will the Kinder Bueno White keep us happy? Let’s take a closer look to find out.
We really had high expectations for the Kidner Buneo White Chocolate, although none of the tasters have previously sampled this chocolate bar. We also did not really understand, it’s not actually a chocolate bar. It’s wafer based, and is more of a mix of a chocolate bar and a crunchy cookie. The texture and taste did not let us down. It’s so crunchy, but not too crunchy. It’s flakey as well. The nut cream filling is phenomenal! The Kinder Bueno White Choclate is pleasant, not to sweet, and comes together to create a very well rounded snack. There simply is nothing in the US to compare, and that’s probably why we are in business!
Typically we end our review with a decision if we will stock the featured snack in our international snack store. This review is different. Even though our German Snack store is not officially launched, you can buy the Kinder Bueno White Chocolate Online right now! We have a sneak preview of just a few German Snacks until our store officially opens. If you are searching for German snacks or just interested in knowing when we add other countries, be sure to leave your details to the right. Keep on snacking world!
Terry's Chocolate Orange
World of Snacks is searching high and low for the very best snacks found anywhere in the world and we are highlighting our discoveries on our international snack blog. Later this year we will launch our online snack store and plan to offer many of these featured items available for purchase with shipping in the US and across the globe. We initially thought this chocolate treat was from Poland since it’s manufactured there, however our research has led us to classify this confectionery item as English, where the company originated. Being much of my childhood was spent abroad in England I didn’t find it hard to believe this was not a Polish snack, it was one of my favorites as a kid!
The presentation of Terry’s Chocolate Orange definitely adds to the charm of this high-end treat. It comes is a shinny blue box with gold letters. The snack itself is the size of an orange and comes wrapped in gold foil. Upon unwrapping this chocolate orange you can tap it in the center and it splits into 20 individual orange wedges! We know it looks good, but how does Terry’s Chocolate Orange taste?
Although this snack from England was one I enjoyed as a child, it has been a long time since I’ve indulged in one. To be honest, I wasn’t 100% sure what to expect, well other than chocolate and orange. After the first bite, my original experience with Terry’s came back vividly. The snack is fun to eat and consists of firm almost crunchy chocolate that is blended with orange oil. The orange flavor is smooth and not acidic like a real orange. The flavor compliments the chocolate but does not overwhelm the taste buds. All tasters really enjoyed this British candy although my preferences have changed over the years. I was happy to indulge on this decadent treat but I would say it’s no longer my favorite. I think sampling snacks from around the world has led to an increased pallet for snacks. I found the chocolate a hair waxy like a US candy bar and the sugar content to be a little too high. That being said, I’m just being picky. Terry’s Chocolate Orange is a fantastic international snack!
Will World of Snacks offer Terry’s Chocolate Orange as a part of our normal inventory when our snack store launches? All signs say yes, so if you are searching for this unique British snack you will be able to order here soon! If you’d like to be notified when our store opens be sure to leave your details to the right.
1/01/20014 UPDATE: Alan from the UK notified us that we actually reviewed the US version of this snack. We did import it from the UK but sometimes we still get items made for the US market. We will be sure to review the true snack from England in the near future. - WorldofSnacks
Olza Prince Polo Dark Chocolate
Since the beginning of the year World of Snacks has been reviewing candy and chips from all around the world in search of inventory for the launch of our international snack store. One of the very first snacks we reviewed and the first video created by our 10 year old Director of Taste was the Price Polo Premium from Poland. For this snack review we find ourselves again sampling a Polish candy bar from the Olza company, manufacturer of the Prince Polo Premium.
Olza at one time was a Polish confectioner located in Cieszyn. The company was created in 1920 by Marek Pipes under the name Dea. Olza created the most loved candy bar in Poland, the Prince Polo. In 1993 the Kraft company purchased Olza and absorbed the brand but kept the name present on their snacks.
Our Polish snack for this review is the Olza Prince Polo Dark Chocolate. It comes in a shinny gold wrapper with a maroon Prince Polo logo and the word's classic in the upper right hand corner. Although our last Price Polo was a part of their premium line the packaging on the Dark Chocolate Classic version is still about the same quality and still looks classy.
Enough about the wrapper! How does the Olza Prince Polo Dark Chocolate taste? If this was our first Prince Polo I am sure we'd be over the top about this Polish Snack. The wafer inside is crunchy, slightly sweet, and the dark chocolate is silky smooth and creamy. However, the Prince Polo Premium almost floored us and is one of our testers all time favorite candy bar from anywhere in the world. The Dark Chocolate Prince Polo is good and we enjoyed it, but it did not contend with the other version.
Will you be able to buy the Olza Prince Polo Dark Chocolate Candy bar when our international snack store launches later this year? It's a definite yes! We intend to stock all version of the Prince Polo as a part of our normal inventory. To be notified of the launch of our store be sure to leave your information to the right. Keep on snacking World!
Milka Choco-Swing Cookies
With our international snack blog we are searching the world for the very best snacks and providing reviews as well as locating inventory in preparation for the launch of our web-based global snack store. Part of our review process is determining the origination of the snack and most of the time it's pretty straight forward. On rare occasions some international snack brands make it slightly difficult to categorize it's country. Our snack for review today is one such case. So today our global snack blog heads to Switzerland, Austria, and/or Poland to review Milka Choco-Swing Cookies by Kraft.
This is not the first time we have reviewed a snack offered by Kraft through their Milka label. Previously we reviewed Milka Milkinis Chocolate Bars. During our homework session researching that particular snack (manufactured in Poland) we determined that the creator was Swiss Chocolatier who was born in Germany. So from our introduction the Milka brand was all ready pretty international. To make things even more complicated the Milka Choco-Swing Cookies we are looking at now are made in Austria and ultimately the brand is owned by the world wide conglomerate, Kraft. So we are going to ballpark this snack as being from Switzerland and if anyone can prove otherwise, we'd love to hear from you! Now let's get onto the important stuff, the review of cookies, or as they are labeled, the Milka Choco-Swing Alpine Milk Chocolate & Biscuit.
Another key feature of our international snack reviews is the presentation and packaging. Even though we do include detailed photos we generally like to paint a picture of the experience. With this snack we are so eager to share the taste test that we are going to skip the wrapper and jump right in!
Will World of Snack include Milka Choco-Swing Alpine Milk Chocolate & Biscuits when we launch or snack store later this year? This snack, no matter it's origin will absolutely be included as a part of our normal inventory! If you haven't already be sure to enter your email to the right so we can notify you of our launch and also send you a special coupon. We hope you will get to sample this snack and many others for yourself before the end of the year!
Dr Gerard Choco Cool
When we developed the concept of creating the world's first online international snack store we had a list of exciting snacks and countries we wanted to explore. To be honest, Poland was not on the list. Our last visit to Poland we sampled the very delicious Milka Milkinis Candy Bar and the time before we reviewed the scrumptious Prince Polo Candy Bar. With our third candy from Poland we are noticing a trend. Keep reading to see what this trend is.
Now let's take a look at Original Dr. Gerard Choco Cool Biscuits with Cream Filling and Chocolate. Our sample is a rather large pack that contains 8 biscuits, or in the US, cookies. The top of the package is clear allowing the appetizing snack to peek through. The remainder of the package is a translucent red. The cookies inside truly do look irresistible through the clear window. They appear to be a graham cracker style biscuit with a three piece chocolate bar attached to the top. Enough about how they look, let's sample this enticing snack from Poland.
Our test group for this snack review consisted of only adults all aged 25-31. The size of the packaging allowed us to share them with a group of people to get a wide assessment of the snack. The verdict was unanimous, and everyone truly enjoyed the Dr Gerard Choco Cool cookies. Although the biscuit looked like a typical graham cracker, it had a much more elegant flavor. They reminded me personally of the free cookies that airlines give on short flights in the US. The chocolate was milky and smooth and inside was a semi-sweet cream, that we initially mistook as coconut. The combination of all three elements together was truly delicious and presented well. The Choco Cool biscuits hint to a beloved american snack known as smores, but in a refined fashion.
So what's is the trend we are seeing with Polish Snacks? So far we have discovered that Poland is home to many delicious snack and is now one of our most sought after counties for snack. The Dr. Gerard Choco Cool Biscuits are my personal new favorite snack and the Prince Polo, is my son's favorite snack. Will World of Snacks offer Dr Gerard Choco Cool Biscuits when our international snack store launches later this year? You bet we will!

Milka Milkinis Chocolate Bars
We are not 100% sure where they are from but we do know how they look and more importantly how they taste!
Last time World of Snacks visited a top selling snack from Poland we took an in-depth look at the very delicious Prince Polo by Kraft. This time we are reviewing Milka Milkinis which is also now owned by Kraft as well. Although this chocolate bar currently is manufactured in Poland got it start from Philippe Suchard in 1901 who is considered a Swiss chocolatier, and when it comes to chocolate that is a fine distinction. Suchard opened his first factory in Germany and his company Milka was considered a German confectionery producer. After his initial success Milka became a major player in Switzerland making the categorizing of this snack product difficult. To add to the confusion Kraft International purchased the company in the early 90s and the Milka Milkinis are it’s best selling candy bar through out Europe.
Although we are not 100% sure where they are from we do know how they look and more importantly how they taste! Our snack sample is a slim box containing a total of 8 chocolate bars. A playful cartoon cow that happens to be purple, or lilac to be exact graces the box. Each bar is individually wrapped in a crisp foil and consist of four sections with the friendly cow in place on each piece. They are pleasant to look at and appear to be made to appeal to children, although the packaging in the US would seem more on the upscale end.
Sure they look good, but how do Milka Milkinis taste? The bars are a sweet milk chocolate with a creamy milky filling. They are 51% sugar so they are much sweeter than typical chocolate bars out of Germany or Switzerland. The chocolate is soft and light colored and the milk center is bright white and moist. They strongly resemble one of my personal favorites, the Kinder bar from Germany. If not being so familiar with Kinder I am sure I would have been through the roof about this snack. However, being a fan of Kinder I appreciated the Milkinis but preferred my trusted favorite. Overall our panel all enjoyed the snack and our 10 year old Director of Taste proclaimed this is among his favorite candy bars from around the world.
Will you be able to purchased Milka Milkinis chocolate bars online from World of Snacks? Providing we do not consider these a German snack we hope to offer Milkinis as a part of our normally stocked inventory. A little more research is needed and if they do fall under a German favorite we may decide not to stock the snack being it is so close to Kinder. We will make a final decision prior to the end of the year when we anticipate the launch of our international snack store.
Olza Prince Polo Premium by Kraft
We are following up our review of Daelmans Dutch Carmel Wafer with another wafer style snack. This time the flaky treat comes from Poland. Prince Polo was first introduced to the country in 1955 and it's parent company Olza has been a delicious snack supplier since 1920. If you are one of our American readers you may have noticed the familiar Kraft logo in the corner of the packaging. Kraft eventually purchased Olza in 1993. The Prince Polo has long been one of the most popular candy bars in Poland. It is also loved by many of the surrounding countries including the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Ukraine under the name Siesta. If you are not familiar with this international snack you are probably wondering what exactly it is. This product consists of four wafer joined by three layers of white chocolate filling. To add to the excitement it is then dipped into white chocolate and sprinkled with coconut. Some international snack blogs and sites are offering the Prince Polo as a healthy alternative to a normal candy bar. From the nutrition facts we still believe this bar is far from healthy. Luckily nutrition is not the point because the Olza Prince Polo White Chocolate Confection with Coconut is delicious! Generally we'd include more details of the taste on our snack review but we have a little something different for you today!
You may have noticed the new video review on our blog. Since the entire site is still in development you may see many changes to our formatting and presentation as we finalize our concept. Jayden our Director of Taste will weigh in with his reviews on occasion as he tracks down the world's best snacks. We know the production value could be improved but right now we are just having fun! Look for improvements and other exciting changes as we progress.
