Marks & Spencer White & Milk Chocolate Polar Bear
Today we are back with M&S again, who seem to have got Christmas covered this year with their interesting range of snacks. They always bring out their own versions of Maltesers Reindeers; usually Bubbly Santas and the like, but this year they've added something new and a bit more exciting to the range; a White & Milk Chocolate Polar Bear!
Typical to M&S, this is not just any chocolate Polar Bear, but a "white chocolate polar bear with a chocolate flavoured truffle filling". So, sort of like a Cadbury Mousse Snowman but reversed and with white chocolate. Woo! He may be a bear but luckily he is vegetarian friendly, as well as being gluten free.
The white chocolate was rather thick and very milky, whilst the filling was a standard soft milk chocolate truffle. The whole thing was very sweet and creamy, but thanks to the good quality white chocolate it was very delicious. This is a bit of a sugar rush but it is a perfect little Christmassy snack, and far nicer than most of the overly sweet stuff Cadbury's have out.
Overall, if you need a sweet hit over the festive season whilst shopping you really can't go wrong with this!
8.5 out of 10.
