Kinder Bueno White

I know it’s turning winter now, but I stumples across this one today. This chocolate treat is the summer edition of the original Kinder bueno and comes with white chocolate instead of milk chocolate. There are two finger separately wrapped inside a plastic foil and as soon as I unwrap one of them I see why they are wrapperd twice: The bar is covered with cocoasplinters which tend to fall off easily.

On the outside, this thing does not have an intensive aroma. Except for the slight milky scent there is absolutely nothing. Not even the cocoasplinters have a strong aroma. The filling is a little more intensive: The white milky-chocolaty cream and the wafer remind me of Giotto, another Ferrero candy.

The taste is light and milky. This bar isn’t too rich of chocolate. In fact, the 1mm coating provides just a glimpse of chocolate in there. The dominating flavor comes from the center of the bar, this creamy milk filling is really rich of milk and sugar. Still it does not get sickly. I’m not sure how they did it, but in combination with the rather featureless wafer in there, the candy is really pleasant. The cocoasplinters on the outside are unfortunately not too rich of cocoa as well, but they add a note of actual chocolate to the bar.

For a summer treat I find this thing alright. One finger isn’t really satisfying, and two of those contain more fat and calories as a normal-sized snickers bar. So, if you like it and are not interested in the nutrition facts, have a go and enjoy this two-finger treat!

Kinder joy

It is kind of difficult to categorize this candy… A milk snack/candy? However, this ‘egg’ consists of 45% milk crème, 22% hazelnut-cocoa-crème and two small crispy hazelnut balls coated with mid-bitter chocolate.

It is said to be the summer version of the Kinder surprise eggs, but to be honest, they don’t have a lot in common at all. It comes with a plastic spoon to eat it, and it is really difficult to try it without any tool, as the crèmes are simply too liquid.

The two crèmes are really smooth and melt away immediately. The milk version reminds me of the Kinder chocolate bar which is filled with a similar milk crème. This version’s flavor is alike the familiar filling, but the texture is smoother: While the milk crème’s texture in the bar is rather similar to a chocolate texture, this one is as soft and liquid as a real crème filling in a praline. The flavor is indeed sweet, but the milky taste dominates it, which is really nice to eat; or rather suck.
The hazelnut crème reminds me of Nutella, but that’s what I expected, knowing that Nutella is produced by Ferrero as well: Really rich of nut, but horrifying sweet at the same time. I remember sitting in the living room with my Nutella-breakfast and watching TV when I was about six or seven.

Only the balls top half is covered with chocolate, the bottom sticks in the crèmes and their plain wafer is on the outside if you. It’s not so crunchy wafer is filled with a more liquid and less rich of nut version of the hazelnut crème. The dark chocolate coating and crumbles on the outside are the main flavor in here, and I enjoy them most, as they are not as sweet as the crème which surrounds the balls.

All in all, I enjoyed trying this egg! The constellation is quite unique, especially the milk crème thing. Ferrero always seems to be creative with their products and they always seem to have nice ideas of how to invent something new. Of course this is no high quality product, but it is really delicious and worth trying, especially for it’s price. Would I buy it for myself? I’m unsure about that, but that’s only because I like to have a greater amount of chocolate; but I’d certainly recommend trying  it!

Lindt Strawberry milk-crème

It’s been a while since I wrote about the colors of season edition produced by Lindt, and I haven’t reviewed all of them yet. This one is the red-colored strawberry milk-creme bar.

This bar is as beautifully wrapped as the milk crème-nut and caramel version. I don’t really get what season the heart stands for, but maybe someone of you can help me out?
I checked the ingredients list, and except of some citrus aroma there is nothing in the chocolate, I did not expect to be there. 17% of milk powder seems pretty balanced and gives me hope that the alpine milk chocolate will be rather tasty, even for me.

The intensive aroma of the fruit inside the chocolate gets to you as soon as you open the foil. This time it is a really fresh and fruity scent of strawberry that fills your nose. It is stronger than the smell of chocolate, but you can still sense the milky and sweet scent of typical Lindt alpine chocolate.

Like the forest berry bar, it contains a small milk crème layer topped with a light pink yoghurty strawberry crème with embedded pieces of strawberries. It really smells like a yummy fresh yohurt.

However, the taste is not as fresh and fruity as I expected it to be, but still alright. It is really sweet and the milk dominates the overall taste of the treat. Especially the creamy alpine-chocolate coating adds a huge amount of milk to the bar. The strawberry pieces are chewy and delicious, I like the fact that there is a lot of fruit in the filling. Further, as soon as there are some more large pieces at one place, it gets slightly sour for a moment and the sweetness is compensated most of the time. As you can see, the bar is really versatile in taste, depending on how much fruit is in there.

One end of a container is always filled just with  the milk crème, while the other has only the strawberry filling. I guess that’s just because of the production process. There is a really strong milk flavor on the milky side and I miss the freshness in there. For a short moment I am reminded of the Ferrero Kinder chocolate, just that the chocolate itself is way creamier. The other side is really cool and fruity, probably the best part of the entire bar.

I guess it will also taste nice when you put it in the fridge. Unlike this one, some of the other special summer versions this year are made to be eaten cold, but I can imagine that this bar would be a great cooled chocolate as well!

Ritter Sport Hazelnut Brittle

Another crème filled version. This time the crème consists of hazelnuts and comes with pieces of krokant. So you can say this is a very nutty version. The chocolate smells all nutty and I am starting to look forward to trying this version. Though, my sceptism remains as I am not too fond of Ritter Sport’s new creations.

The first thing I realize is the crunch the brittle provides. I like the texture from the very beginning: A creamy hazelnut crème which is softer than most other Ritter Sport fillings, filled with tiny pieces of krokant that are really crunchy. The milk chocolate coating is just as usual: It is creamy and melts easily; nothing exceptional but worth the price.

In the beginning, the flavor does not really satisfy me. It smells nuttier than it actually tastes. The creme is rather milky than nutty, and I miss the taste of almonds in the brittle. Just the hazelnut pieces provide a small amount of nut flavor, but compared to the rest of the chocolate, this taste is rather a bytaste. It is not bad, but I would have expected a nuttier taste.
Though, I get more and more into the taste and the intensity of the flavor seems to vary a little depending on which part of my bar I eat, as there are sometimes more and sometimes less pieces of hazelnut and brittle in there.
Don’t get me wrong, I like this chocolate, especially compared to the price. Though, I’ve eaten better, tastier versions of embedded brittle in chocolate cream; and the hazelnut is nothing too special. For me, this treat is alright, but not Ritter’s best work.
