Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Milkybar Choco Mousse Confirmed sighting: Nestle Milkybar Choco Mousse
Posted: 13:01 Mon 11-Oct-2004. Price: 44p. Location: Asda, Monks Cross Shopping Park, York. Nutritional unusualness: Fat reduced cocoa powder used for the mousse filling.
"Phillerena" reports: It's not surprising to see yet another chocolate bar variation from Nestle... this time it's the turn of the kiddies' favourite, Milkybar. Choco Mousse sounds appealing, makes you think of the delicious airy stuff you buy from the yoghurt section, right? Well, this is nothing like it. The filling is not as deep as what is shown on the wrapper, and takes a few bites until you notice it. Once you do, it will remind you of an almost cocoa-ish sort of taste, and this seems to clash with the sweet white chocolate. It's not too bad though - makes a change from the regular Milkybar range, which is a bit lacking in variety (though I won't be rushing out to buy this a second time). If this is a sign of new additions to the Milkybar range, I'm not complaining. Perhaps the caramel and coconut varieties will also follow?

...Well, The Grocer recently implied that Nestle are launching pocket-money priced bags of Crawlie Creatures (Wiggly Worms, Sour Spiders and Fruity Frogs, 20p), but regarding caramel and coconut Milkybars - does "Phillerena" know something we don't? And comiserations to "S Wallen", who paid 41p for this in Asda, Fareham, Hampshire, but neglected to provide either a photo or very much detail on what the product actually is, commenting: I found this next to Aero Caramel and decided to try both (well you have to, don't you?). The Aero Caramel I found to be quite nice but this beat it for taste and difference as the Aero has been reduced down to mini me proportions. The chocolate inside is a nice twist as it reduces the sicklyness of the white chocolate.

Comment: The Crawlie Creatures (under the Rowntrees brand, if I remember rightly) have been around for a while now. I saw them in the local cash&carry about a month ago, but they don't seem to have made it to shops yet. (I didn't buy any, because I was pretty sure I already knew how they'd taste.) By the look of them, expect more generic pointless American-style "gummy" rubbish like Starburst Froots.

Comment: they've had these (Milkybar Choc Mousse) in Australia for a while now... Nestle's Double Blend as well...

Comment: Surely pocket money has gone up from 20p since I was a lad?

Comment: Oh yes you're right...

The Double Blend, by the way, looks like our very own Double Cream.
