Candy Review:

So Milka M-Joy with Peanuts and Flakes was a candy bar I picked up at the Garden Gourmet up in the Bronx. While an obscure looking candy bar…. I found that it is a Kraft Foods product produced in Europe, and I think specifically Germany. The bar claims to be Alpine Milk Chocolate, but I am not quite sure what that is supposed to mean…a google search didn’t bring me any conclusive results.

My first experience with the corn flake candy bar was with a Ritter Sport with Cornflakes that Leah had bought to share. The Ritter bar really surprised me, because I had never thought of putting the corn flakes into chocolate before and this is what made me purchase the M-Joy.

Overall the chocolate was dense, rich, and creamy, and the bar itself was thicker and of a better quality than most of your typical American candy bars (think a slightly better version of Mr. Goodbar). So I like peanuts and the flakes, but together I felt that they just kind of canceled each other out. As you know a peanut has a very distinctive taste, and the corn flake is very subtle. I almost felt that the peanuts were too overpowering to be in the same bar with the flakes in respect to both taste and texture. The texture of the flake is very delicate where as with the peanut is big (for a candy bar) and crunchy.

Don’t get me wrong…The Milka M-Joy was a tasty snack, but when it comes down to it the Ritter Sport Cornflakes bar I felt was just a better piece of candy. With the M-Joy the unique ingredient of the cornflake is just lost.
