European Chocolate meets American Cookie. Presenting, Milka Oreo!
One of the greatest joys when traveling abroad is trying out new foods. Ben and I always make time to head to a local supermarket and try as many of the interesting brands or styles of food that we can. Usually it’s one of the highlights of the trip, as most things we can never find back home. Enter, the Milka Oreo!
American chocolate sucks. Sorry y’all, I know I’m gonna get the hate comments, but as a general rule, it really does! Why does my chocolate have to come with polyglycerol polyricinoleate. I mean what the actual !@%! is that anyway?
When we were in Havana, Cuba earlier this year we had the chance to go to a chocolate museum and see how they make chocolate, and I can tell you that there was not any polyglycerol polyricinoleate in there. It was some of the smoothest, tastiest chocolate we’ve had!
When I first visited Europe, I was blown away by the amount of chocolate available everywhere, and it tasted so much different from what I was used to. Milka was the first chocolate I tried, and I suppose because of that it had a very special place in my heart. It’s a guarantee that anywhere in Europe that you go, you’re going to find Milka chocolates. They’d always been in the “imported” section here in stores in the USA, and coming from Germany, that makes sense.
Match made in Heaven
OMFG! My favorite cookie as a child, Oreo, are now being mixed together with Milka chocolate for what I can only say is the most amazing candy we’ve tasted. Just check out this video here from Milka and Oreo:
Hello yes please!
As soon as I found out about these I ran out to the store and we grabbed a few. They’ve been available overseas for a while, but they’re new here, and they’re awesome. They even have a “Big Crunch Bar” which is a gigantic cookie wrapped in creme and chocolate.
Don’t feel like getting up?
Don’t worry! Amazon is now selling the chocolate and Oreo goodness, and you can find it along side some of the European imports as well.
I encourage you to go grab a few bars and indulge. Enjoy!
