Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Barratt Lovely Mini Eggs/ Milka with Daim Pieces Confirmed sighting: Barratt Lovely Mini Eggs/ Milka with Daim Pieces
Posted: 17:08 Sun 04-Apr-2010. Price: (Lovely Mini Eggs) 50p/40g bag. Location: Convenience store near New Kent Road, London. Nutritional unusualness: Fruit and vegetable concentrates (carrot, radish, blackcurrant).
Snackspot reports: Lovely Mini Eggs? Letdown Mini Eggs more like (though that might be partly because I'd been hunting them since the end of last year - you can hear my full disappointment at around 7:45 into this podcast, along with comments on Duc d'O Speckled Praline Mini Eggs and these ones from Toy Story). Anyway, for an alternative Easter crunch, over to "Nick T", who paid 50p in Globe News, Leicester for a UK Milka with Daim Pieces, echoing Jane Austen's observation that: "It is international law that every airport shop has a huge display of Milka chocolate. Now imagine if every airport also had a branch of Ikea. What does everybody buy at Ikea? Wrong. They buy bags of mini Daim bars, made by Marabou. Sorry, Jacobs Suchard. Oops, I mean Kraft. Now consider if a baggage handler (does not apply to BA) went berserk with a chainsaw and attacked both of these redoubtable stores. What would the result be?"

"Well imagine no more, for those wonderful Americans, who aren't asset strippers at all and certainly not at Bournville, gosh no, now bring us Milka with Daim Pieces. Now I've been a big fan of the chocolate in the violet packaging ever since I took an ill-judged holiday in Germany and the only choice of food was local kalb gehirn with cabbage and dumplings as heavy as lead, or the big bar of Milka I bought at Munich airport. Frankly, it saved my life. 'Made with Alpine milk', the wrapper still trumpets. But check that back and... since when has Belgium been in the Alps? Anyway, the irony is that it tastes exactly the same as the normal chocolate on Daims, so really this is just another way of delivering Daim pieces. And I've no problem with that: if it were LESS creamy it wouldn't be a new experience, it'd just be... wrong somehow. Like Antony Worrall-Thompson, or Sylvester Stallone's mother. Know what I mean?"

"All in all, this is a bit of a winner and I'll be back for more. The crunchy bits are nice, but much too small, and remind me of Green and Black's Butterscotch bar. That's Green and Black's which is of course owned by the former MD of Whole Earth Foods. Oh, hang on a minute, I mean owned by Cadbury. No! Now, what's their name...?"

Comment: Am I the only person around who finds Milka chocolate bland? Too much milk?

Comment: Milka tastes to me like an Aldi version of Galaxy. I got the one with Daim pieces and they are far too small and get a bit lost in the super milky chocoloate
