Milky Way: French Vanilla and Caramel
You have no idea how hard it has been resisting the urge to devour this next one. I had to wait until I had time to do a review(or whatever you’d like to call this nonsense) for it! I can’t wait any longer. It’s time.
Yet another new limited edition Milky Way. This time, French Vanilla and Caramel. I really didn’t expect to see these until a bit closer to Christmas, but it’s the one that I was most excited for! Just look at it. Doesn’t the packaging look all creamy, cozy, and inviting? Honestly, it is probably just a less chocolately Milky Way, but the wrapper makes it look amazing.. I don’t know if it’s the creamy swirls, the curling, dripping caramel, the vanilla beans and flower, or the fact that they named it “French Vanilla” instead of just vanilla. I think that’s similar to how I feel about “sea salt”. Throw sea in front of salt and it sounds exotic and much more tasty. Why? It just does. Is there much of a difference between vanilla and French vanilla, aside from just vanilla sounds boring but French vanilla, oh boy, that’s fancy and amazing, right? No? Okay. I can’t go on any longer without tasting this. Must. Consume.
Well at first sniff, it smells marshmallow to me. Oh yeah, totally different from a normal Milky Way!
The caramel and chocolate are the same(sweet and uh, sweet). The nougat is white and SUPER sweet. I don’t know if “French Vanilla” is the best way to describe it. Though it got me to buy it. Who am I kidding, it was something new, of course I was going to buy it! It does make it a lot more appealing though. It’s a very, sweet, almost cheap vanilla. I know it’s not an expensive, fancy chocolate, but I guess I was expecting something that was going to knock me off my feet. Guess I need to lower my expectations. Had I lower expectations to start with, this would be amazing! Even though the vanilla doesn’t taste “rich” enough to me, the bar itself is really good! Just a tad, or a ton, too sweet to eat the whole bar in one sitting. Hopefully they have bags of the mini version, because those would be PERFECT! Ooh, or frozen! I bet it would be great frozen! It’s got more flavor than plain ‘ol vanilla ice cream, and since the nougat is much tougher, it would be a delectable treat to have frozen. I think. That sounds semi-fancy, right? I’m really going to have to keep my eyes open for mini ones! I’m excited to try this frozen! I’d throw the second half in the freezer, but I know my dad really wants to try it. He even said he almost ate it a few times, but figured I was going to write about it, so he better not. I’m quite surprised we both had the will power to not eat this right away!
This is totally a must try! WAY better than the caramel apple version, which was neat to try, but these aren’t quite as sickening. Have they done a coconut Milky Way yet? I don’t think I’ve seen that.. Just M&M’s, Twix, and 3 Musketeers. Oh, yeah, 3 Musketeers. Duh. Milky Way without caramel pretty much! Though maybe it WOULD be pretty tasty with some caramel. Yeah, totally. It’d be way different. Yup.
I’m actually kind of surprised there isn’t some sort of pumpkin spice Milky Way yet. I’m not a pumpkin fan, but it doesn’t seem like a bad idea. They’ve played around a lot with 3 Musketeers, maybe it really is Milky Way’s turn to try on a few new outfits for a while. I dig it. (does that make me cool?)
