There are 2 versions of the candy and I thought that they should compete in the spirit of the Olympic games…
I bought the Euro version at World Market, thinking it would be similar to the one I buy at Safeway. I think I even spent $2 on it. I have high standards for European candy, and my expectations were high. So, there’s the starter gun…. And they’re off….(American version is on the left, Euro on the right.)
First, the euro is a bit flatter on the top, than the U.S. version. Secondly, when I bit into it, I expected caramel, but no, there was only nougat. Thirdly, it’s much smaller. (The Euro falls behind.)
It was like a 3 Musketeers, but more dense. The candy bar was dry and flat tasting. (The Euro trips as they head for the finish line…)
Milky Way without caramel is just not a Milky Way. If this were the candy Olympics, it wouldn’t be a medal contender. U.S.A. wins!
The only positive that I can take from this is that I didn’t eat more than 2 bites.
