Michaszki White Chocolate Peanut Candies
Here we have Mieszko Michaszki white chocolate peanut candies, which I found in the import section of Sainsbury's. I'd never heard of these before so thought I'd try something new. I love chocolate and peanut combinations such as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Nutrageous, so was looking forward to seeing how these compared. Looking at the ingredients list I was a little hesitant as these candies contain hydrogentated vegetable fat, which is a common bulking agent used in cheap chocolates.
I'm not sure if I liked these or not as they tasted more salty and peanutty than sweet. They were kind of moreish yet sickly. The texture was dry and powdery, with little bits of crunchy peanut. The thin white chocolate coating didn't bring much to the party other than a bit of sugary sweetness. Overall, I'm not really sure what to think! I didn't hate these but didn't love them. They certainly have their own unique charm though.
If you're a fan of salty peanut candies you should at least give these a try, but don't expect anything like Reese's.
Have you tried these before? If so what did you think?
