It’s time for the second of my Leibniz Pick Up! reviews and tonight it’s the turn of the Choco & milch variety.

This product was the same basic idea as the Black 'n white version but consisted of plain biscuit rather than chocolate and contained, according to Monster Sweets, a ‘delicious choco and milk cream filling’. The wrapper was very much on the same theme but contained a strip of baby blue, rather than black, and had an illustration of a square of chocolate and a glass of milk which, coincidentally, are two of my favourite things.

On opening the product, I was greeted by a smooth-looking, golden biscuit sandwich which had the product name imprinted on the top. Whilst the Pick Up!: Black 'n white had a white chocolate bar running down the centre, this one had milk chocolate. After initially being concerned that, somehow, the milk layer had been forgotten about, I was relieved to find that this was entirely cased within the chocolate and there was actually a lot of it.  

The main smell emanating from the biscuit was the chocolate which had a creamy and almost coconutty aroma. There were also hints of the biscuit itself within this.

The biscuit had a sweetened rich tea flavour and, whilst there was visually more of a milk filling than a chocolate one, the chocolate had quite a dark, strong flavour. Combined, the central bar was smooth, soft, creamy and very sweet. I did find it difficult, though, to pick up exactly which part of the flavour was coming from the chocolate and which bit was from the milk. However, it did seem that the extent of the sweetness was down to the milky core.

As for the texture, this was very similar to the Black 'n white, although the centre was softer due to the milk filling.

I thought this was another tasty biscuit from Bahlsen and I really enjoyed the combination of plain biscuits that allowed the main flavour to come from the centre.
