When Cadbury/Mondelez UK announced they were launching this new Dairy Milk with Daim bar, it didn't surprise me all that much. Dairy Milk is a much more well-known brand here in the UK and so it made sense they would axe the existing Milka with Daim in favour of a Dairy Milk version. It's a shame, but that's the way the snacks world works I guess!
This bar comes in a 120g format, which is the same size as the Dairy Milk with Oreo bar launched last year. It's described on the wrapper as "Milk chocolate with crunchy almond caramel pieces (20%)". The almond caramel pieces being, of course, Daim pieces.
It tasted pretty much like I expected - delicious! Dairy Millk chocolate always tastes good, but the addition of the moreish Daim pieces made it even better and highly munchable. I loved how crunchy they were - each block is just filled with their tasty, crunchy goodness!
Compared to Milka with Daim, there's a few things which make the overall experience of this bar slightly different. Firstly, the chunks are much thicker, which means there's more focus on the chocolate and less on the Daim pieces, which is unfortunate as they're ridiculously tasty. Secondly, Dairy Milk chocolate is a bit sweeter than Milka which makes it harder to eat too many blocks of this at once.
Grumbles aside, this is a fantastic bar of chocolate and one I would highly recommend. Infact it's probably one of the nicest new bars Cadbury have brought out in ages!
