Tesco Wild & Whippy

Sometimes I start off with the best of intentions, but when it comes to the crunch (or the chew), my actions don’t quite live up to my own ideals.

For instance, this lonely looking little bar of chocolate was once part of a 10-pack. I bought it with the intention of photographing a nice big pile of bars in an arty pose, but alas, this is all that I have left. I honestly have no idea where the other nine went.

No, really. I can’t have eaten them all, I would have noticed!

As you may have noticed already, this is a Milky Way clone (that’s a UK Milky Way, not an American one). It’s basically a light, ‘fluffy’ whipped nougat with a thin layer of milk chocolate.

It tastes similar to a Milky Way, although it’s possibly a tad sweeter and a tiny bit less fluffy than the real thing. It’s not quite “the real thing”, but once you’ve eaten 5 or 6 of them, you don’t really care. If you like Milky Way, you’ll like this.

Nutritionally, of course this has no value at all. The small bar size (26g) is effectively cancelled out by the urge to eat all 10 bars in one go.

So there you have it. It’s a copy of someone else’s product, has no nutritional value and will make you incredibly fat. Which is probably why love it. Yum.

    I demolished a packet of these recently ;)

    Please review Lidl J.D Gross Pralines. It’s a knock off of Guylian seashell chocolates but it only costs £1.29! Yes!

    (How much did the 10 pack cost?)

    I had to go and check the web site, but they’re £1.06 for 10. :)

    I prefer the Aldi version (they have their own brand Mars
    and Snickers, too – both fabulous). Don’t remember the name now, think I need to go and, erm, check later today ;)

    Sainsburys also do their own 10 pack Milky Way copy. Too moreish, and not the sort of thing any self-respecting posh chocs reviewer would be seen dead eating.

  5. Aha, so YOU too lost control and didn’t manage to photograph the bar ‘au naturel’ either! :)
