Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Nestle MilkyBar Milk and Cookies
Posted: 13:32 Thu 16-10-2003. Price: 45p. Location: Julian Road Stores, Bath. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: Like the little black nuggets also found in Maltesers Ice Cream, the "chocolate cookie" pieces sprinkled liberally throughout the lower half of this bar taste of absolutely nothing, and seem to be there solely to provide a little texture relief from the sweet sickliness of white chocolate. The crunchy bits give your mouth something to do while the chocolate melts, but your taste buds may as well go for a little holiday, because there's no work for them here.

...Thanks to Stu for rounding off some earlier sightings of this mysterious beast, previously described here as "a chunky Milkybar covered in faint blue spots, giving the distinct (and unfortunate) impression it's a culture of some kind". And Stuart concluded his cookie comparisons with these comments on the not-terribly-new Cookie Poppets (42p/ box), proposing: How could you possibly NOT buy something with a name as lovely as "Cookie Poppets"? Awww. By a happy chance, though, these are every bit as nice as their name. The cookie centres are soft and crumbly, with the result that as soon as you bite into them, they collapse together with the chocolate into a single malty mass that's extremely reminiscent in both taste and texture of the delicious Australian Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate you can buy from Cybercandy. Even though the box announces them as "NEW", these seem to be rare even among stockists of the older varieties of Poppets, but they're well worth the effort of tracking down.

Comment: The Cookie Poppets aren't that great in my opinion. To go further, I would suggest that they are a bit bland, apart from the chocolate itself, which crumbles most satisfyingly. It's the biscuit that ruins it for me; Poppets must be mint or toffee, all else is wrong.

(Or raisin, in fact.)

Comment: Both products are also (theoretically) ideal for quoting the bit in Blade Runner where Tyrell admires his employee's innovative chess move:

"Got a brainstorm, huh Sebastian? Milk and cookies kept you awake?"

- especially if you have a friend who you think is being secretly helped by a genetically enhanced replicant of Rutger Hauer, and happens to be called "Sebastian"
