Unwrapped it looks like any other Dairy Milk chocolate except that if you look closely you can see a few black pieces of Oreo biscuit peeking through. I wasn't sure when I first heard about this bar if it was simply going to be Oreo chunks encased in Dairy Milk chocolate. Once I finally had a bar in my hand I could see from the wrapper that it actually has a creamy filling with Oreo chunks which are then wrapped in Dairy Milk chocolate.
In the photo above I've cut along the centre of the cubes of chocolate rather than along the natural break, to give you a better idea of the filling. The Oreo pieces seem to congregate along the top of each chunk with the creamy layer along the bottom. This makes it quite a layered bar with separate sections. The Oreo chunks are quite large, bigger than I was expecting, which gave the chocolate a considerably crunchy texture. The creamy layer is very smooth and sweet with an almost white chocolate flavour. The Dairy Milk chocolate covering is the perfect thickness, encasing the sweet filling with a lovely milk chocolate flavour. The combination is divine but then I do love a good biscuit and chocolate union.
I bought the Dairy Milk with Oreo from my local Co-op supermarket for the bargain price of £1. I have a feeling I will be stocking up on quite a few more!
|Dairy Milk with Oreo Vs Milka & Oreo|
I can't resist giving a quick comparison between the Dairy Milk with Oreo and the Milka & Oreo. Cadbury's and Milka are both owned by Kraft so there is obviously some overlap in the ideas behind these bars. I've been lucky enough to eat more than my fair share of Milka & Oreo bars. Luckily enough my brother brought me a bar back from his holiday this week so I could take photos of both bars side by side! There are some similarities between the two but also some important differences.
|Cadbury's on top - Milka on the bottom|
You can see above that the Milka version is much flatter in depth and has smaller pieces of Oreo than the Cadbury's bar. The Milka chocolate coating is also thinner and lighter which means you can see more of the Oreo pieces when looking at the chocolate from above, even though overall there are a lot less Oreo pieces in the Milka one. This makes the Milka & Oreo a lot less crunchy than the Dairy Milk with Oreo. The taste of the chocolate coating is obviously different too, Milka chocolate has subtle caramel undertones whilst Dairy Milk is well... Dairy Milk. They are both great bars but I preferred the Cadbury's version because of the thicker filling and chocolate coating.
