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.
