Nestlé Galak Speculoos Review
I'm very excited about this review of the Nestlé Galak Speculoos bar from Belgium. Firstly, because the bar has been sent to me for review by Cybercandy, who have kindly invited me to be part of their Blogging Family. Anyone remember my epic Cybercandy haul which was one of my earliest posts? There have been a fair few Cybercandy hauls since then too! Secondly, I'm excited because this bar brings together white chocolate with one of my favourite types of biscuit: the Speculoos biscuit. My review of the Lotus Speculoos biscuit spread sums up my love of these deliciously spiced biscuits. They're a gorgeous combination of cinnamon spice and caramelised sugar - the perfect biscuit to enjoy with coffee.
I've been wanting to try this Belgian Nestlé Galak Speculoos ever since I saw it on the Cybercandy Facebook page. The "Nestlé Galak" brand is essentially another name for what we in the UK know as the Nestlé Milkybar. The idea of white chocolate and Speculoos combined is certainly one that I find very appealing!
The Nestlé Galak Speculoos is long and thin with six segmented pieces stamped with the Nestlé logo. It has a creamy colouring with visible biscuit flecks within the chocolate.
The Speculoos biscuit pieces are especially visible on the underside of the bar and consist of lots of small bits of biscuit and a few larger pieces. The bar has the sweet smell you would expect from a Nestlé white chocolate with a hint of the cinnamon biscuit too. The chocolate has the familiar Milkybar taste, which I'm not ashamed to admit I'm partial to anyway: it's creamy and sweet with just a hint of vanilla. The biscuit pieces are scattered throughout the chocolate and give the bar a slightly crunchy texture.
The biscuit pieces really do taste like Speculoos, with the distinctive caramelised sugar flavour and a hint of cinnamon coming through. Everyone in my family was eager to try a piece of this bar and it was shared out and eaten in record time. It's been one of the most popular bars I've tried out on my family because, without fail, everyone loved it - even my husband who is not a fan of white chocolate proclaimed it as delicious. It's a very sweet treat but one we all thoroughly enjoyed. I'll definitely be picking up some more of these, they cost 89p, which I think is a bargain for this gem.
The Nestlé Galak Speculoos are available to buy online at Cybercandy. Look out for another Cybercandy review coming up in the next few days!
Cybercandy kindly sent me this product for an honest review and all views expressed are my own.
