Recently, LindtLover asked us to review Galaxy Ripple, so we decided to scour the shops looking for one. Actually, it wasn’t that difficult – my local newsagent had them, but I’d somehow managed to overlook them until now.
Galaxy Ripple is Masterfood’s answer to Cadbury’s Flake or, more accurately, Twirl. It consists of folded or ‘rippled’ Galaxy milk chocolate with an outer coating of… more chocolate. The result is a pure chocolate bar with lots of air, that crumbles in your mouth.
The main difference between Galaxy Ripple and Twirl is the chocolate itself. Twirl uses the fairly average Dairy Milk chocolate, but this is made with Galaxy, which is a much creamier milk chocolate.
Now I have mixed feelings about Galaxy. I love it, but only in small doses. It’s a little too creamy to eat in a large bar and starts to get a little sickly if you eat too much. Dairy Milk however, I can pretty eat all day without noticing.
But this bar is just the right size to get the best Galaxy experience, and the ripples really do add to that. The thin layers of chocolate and the gaps in between somehow make it even more delicous.
The one thing I would say about this bar is that it doesn’t crumble quite like a Flake does. Presumably because the creamier chocolate is that little bit softer. I’m sure putting this in the fridge for a while would help here.
If you’re a fan of Galaxy or Flake, then you’ll definitly like this. I’ve added it to my ever-growing “buy this again” list.
