Last week I was very excited to receive my latest delivery from Monster Sweets and the first product I’m reviewing was a late addition to my order: Milka Schoko Drops.

Of all the Milka products I’ve ever seen and/or tried, these seemed the most different and were similar in shape and size to Galaxy Minstrels and Nestlé Vice Versas, but with unusual purple and white coloured shells that were unique and fitted the Milka brand perfectly.

The word ‘schoko’ is German for ‘chocolate’ and whilst these Drops did contain Milka’s famous Alpine milk chocolate immediately beneath their candy shells, the main filling was, in fact, a milk cream. This was another difference between Schoko Drops and their Minstrels and Vice Versas equivalents and so I was intrigued to try them.

I absolutely loved the box these Drops came in since, as well as being attractively presented, it had a really cool and easy opening mechanism which I felt deserved its own picture! My only criticism is the box contained 42g when a portion is specified as 25g – surely it wouldn’t have been hard to fit an extra 8g in there to neaten things up a bit?

Unfortunately, these Schoko Drops had absolutely no smell, but they did look pretty and the layers on show when looking at a cross-section looked particularly neat and attractive. The candy shells were lovely and smooth, and not too sweet, and they were nice and crispy to chew. I felt that the three layers worked really well as each section was slightly more flavoursome than the last.

I eat a 72 calorie Kinder Chocolate bar most days with my lunch and, as a result, I’m really familiar with its milky filling. To me, the cream inside these Schoko Drops was very similar and equally milky, although it had a slight added creaminess from the chocolate layer. However, aside from this, I didn’t think the chocolate actually made a huge impact on the product.

Since the main filling was the milky cream rather than chocolate, the texture was softer than if the shells had contained solid chocolate centres. I noticed, as well, that a couple of the pieces had a slightly unusual (and verging on unpleasant) taste, but I think this may have been a defect as the majority of the Drops were very tasty.

Once again, I was generally impressed by this Milka offering. Although the only difference between the white and purple pieces was the colour, I still felt the concept provided some extra variety for the candy market. If I’m honest, I would have preferred these Drops to contain more (or only!) chocolate, but these were definitely a good alternative to the other products out there.
