Galaxy Egg

Galaxy Egg

Coming from the British Isles is this small, chocolate egg from Galaxy. Foil wrapped and sticky, and with no information about it all. I’m looking forward to this.

I’ve previously said that Galaxy chocolate is good chocolate, it tastes very nice and is affordable. This egg is a Galaxy bar, only with a massive amount of caramel in the middle. And I mean a MASSIVE amount.

It was obvious when I unwrapped this that the egg was meant to be pulled in half, but it doesn’t do it well, the caramel came out right in the middle and struggled to stick to each half, fortunately it didn’t drop anywhere because it was so thick and sticky I’d have had a horrible time picking it up.

The taste though is exceptional, these things are so, so nice. The caramel is very rich and goes well with the chocolate, eating both halfs is a little sickly, but it’s worth it. If you like Galaxy bars then pick this up, you won’t be disappointed.

Note: The above picture is old, and the design has changed, but I don’t have a camera and couldn’t find any new pictures on the internet, so this was the best I could do.


Galaxy Promises – Caramel Crunch

Galaxy Promises - Caramel Crunch

‘Smooth milk chocolate with caramel crunch on a bed of milk chocolate’. The tagline for the Galaxy Promises – Caramel Crunch. Sounds good, no?

Looks good too, very good in fact. The Galaxy bar is already in my opinion, a slightly upmarket everyday bar, but this one tries to go even further. The packaging is superb, very posh indeed. Great use of colours and as you can see there’s a little picture of one of the Galaxy squares.

There are 4 squares in each bar, all joined together to form the bar. Each square is a little odd looking, the bottom half of it is the ‘bed of dark chocolate’, and the top half is divided into two sections, one section has a wavy pattern and the other has no pattern at all. Each square can be divided into two, the wavy pattern has the caramel crunch and the plain pattern is solid milk chocolate.

And prolong it you should, this bar is very good. It’s not the best bar I’ve ever tasted, and is a little plain, but it’s very tasty, and it’s worth trying out. There are a few other editions out that I’ll have to get round to trying as well, if this is anything to go by.
