After my disastrous experience with the abominable Spoon It Out eggs from Poundland recently, why would I subject myself to more chocolatey misery from them I hear you ask? Good question...I don't know what to say other than: curiosity! When I saw these new "Creamy" White Chocolate bars in Poundland, along with Milk and Dark chocolate varieties, my interest perked: I wonder how creamy they really are? £1 is a bargain for creamy chocolate!
I didn't notice that the ingredients contain vegetable fats, which is presumably how they can call these "creamy" in the first place since they're not creamy in the sense of tasting like "cream" at all. Maybe they should have labelled them "Greasy"? You can have that idea on me Poundland...
The blocks looked nice and it's a fairly chunky bar, but that's where the positives end. The chocolate tastes very faintly of "real" white chocolate (whatever that is, since many don't consider white chocolate as "real" chocolate anyway) and is very sweet and flavourless. There's not much creaminess or dairy notes to it at all, quite ironic don't you think?! It tasted more like a milky "flavoured" bar. I imagine it would be useful for coating cupcakes or used in baking, but even then I would go for something better quality.
Yes, save your pounds people and go for a Milkybar instead - infinitely more enjoyment will be had by your tastebuds!
