Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Masterfoods Galaxy Promises Confirmed sighting: Masterfoods Galaxy Promises
Posted: 23:18 Mon 15-Aug-2005. Price: From 43p/ 40g. Location: Woolworths, Southampton. Sub-flavours: Roast Hazelnut, Caramel Crunch, Cocoa Crisp, Rich Coffee. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"choccieman" reports: Roast Hazelnut and Caramel Crunch are very good, the usual Galaxy "smoothness" but in a mix of milk and dark chocolate with the stronger dark chocolate flavour slowly taking over inside your mouth - very good indeed. Sadly the nut/ caramel differences are pretty poor, do you want hard little bits in your choc that are all sugary or hard little bits that aren't? There doesn't seem to be any real attempt to make the nut or caramel flavours to be noticeable over the lovely chocolate. Someone out there find me the coffee and cocoa ones and tell me if they taste as good as they sound!

..."choccieman" was first to spot these in Woolies, with "Tom Frost" subsequently paying 99p for a 100g Caramel Crunch in One Stop, Norwich, noting: These are very similar to the Dove Promises that can be found abroad. The 100g bar contains squares of chocolate which are each divided into a "dark chocolate with hard caramel pieces" half and a milk chocolate half with a caramel flavour. The milk chocolate halves are delicious! Best described as a solid version of the Galaxy Caramel they're very satisfying although can be a bit sickly in bulk. The dark chocolate halves are less exciting, with the caramel pieces sticking in teeth a touch easily for my liking. Although quite expensive for what is a small bar of chocolate it is tasty and I'll almost certainly buy it again. I saw the hazelnut version but didn't feel inclined to buy one, not being a nut fan.

Comment: Second 40g bar of hazelnut had a slightly better praline taste. I'd forgotten they were launching 100g versions too, now I'm going to have to keep my eyes open for them too.

If Mars produce these, and Nestle have brought like a million different kit kats plus the wonka bars, what are cadbury doing in their centenary year?

Comment: we tried this in the office last week and all found it very disappointing. the caramel one hardly tastes of caramel at all! it was variously described as 'overengineered' and 'lacking in resolution'. :'(

Comment: If you want Galaxy with Hazelnuts why not just try Galaxy Hazelnuts?

Comment: These bars confuse me by trying to be 3 things at once. I've had the Coffee and Caramel versions so far. Each individual chunk has a plain chocolate base, with Galaxy milk chocolate on half the top and a milk chocolate with hard 'bits' in top all at the same time. To be honest, you don't always want three things in your mouth at once.

Comment: I bought a bar of your Galaxy Promises-Hazelnut for my husband yesterday as he is a huge galaxy fan. But I'm afraid to say how disappointed we both were. It actually tastes like cheap foreign chocolate not like the usual creamy galaxy wer're used to. I took it into work thinking at least it won't be wasted but nobody liked it there either and people I've spoken to have said that they bought a bar and were also very disappointed. As Galaxy is usually lovely chocolate i think you have gone very wrong with this new range. Sorry.

Comment: Me and my husband think it's lush - smooth, with a slight crunch, but not overpowering nutty taste and the dark chocolate complements the milk chocolate perfectly.

Comment: Loved it! This chocolate bar is best savoured one tiny piece at a time with your eyes closed so you don't know what's coming next.

Comment: I really like the crisp bitter botton and the milk triangles on top, I have tried the coffee caramel and haxlenut variations and love them all, just the reight allowance in each to let the flavers come into their own.

Comment: Waitrose have Cocoa Crisp in the bargain dumpbin in Tenterden - we think it's because the plain choc folk think it's sickly, the milk lovers find it too plain. The bits are a side issue.

Comment: I'm in South Africa and we don't get Galaxy chocs here (at least I've never seen them in non-duty free shops). A friend brought me a bar of the coffee variation 3 weeks ago and sadly to say, I've just finished my last triangle. I loved it! Especially the crunchy bits of coffee. When will be get this bliss in SA?????
