Whittaker's Milk Caramel 
Posted: 25 October 2010    8.0 
Milk Caramel The dense block of Whittaker's creamy milk base is exactly what's required to house the ample amounts (36%) of caramel stuffed within. If you're anti-caramel you'll despise this bar, but if you're anti-caramel, what the hell are you doing reading a review about caramel chocolate bars?     
Avg price/gram: USD 0.018   Cocoa %: 33  Size: 250  New Zealand chocolate 
       


Alabama Al heard that Aussie Dave had mailed me caseloads of New Zealand Whittaker bars.  When I mentioned that Aussie Dave couldn't lay his hands on a Whittaker's Caramel bar, but had instead mailed me a Cadbury Caramello, Alabama Al pronounced Aussie Dave a lazy Aussie bastard and then summoned all the resources he could find in the Southern Hemisphere to dig me up this hard-to-find Milk Caramel.  Both bars were compared side-by-side. 

Whittaker's wouldn't be amiss renaming this the Obama Bar.  No, I don't think current American White House tenant Barack Obama has ever tried this bar.  One web site says, without qualification, that Obama's favorite is smoked sea salt caramel in milk chocolate, made by a Seattle-based company.  If you added a bit of sea salt to the Whittaker's bar, would Obama really know the difference?  But that isn't the reason the Obama Bar is so apt a name.  Besides the fact this bar is dark, like Obama, and contains traces of milky white in its genes, like Obama, this bar was a shoo in at the Chocolate Republic, just like Obama was to the White House.   The liberal media did not hide their opinions towards McCain and Palin.  Doug's Chocolate Republic has freely published its opinions about Whittaker's various milk blends, all favorable.  So how could a highly rated New Zealand milk blend combined with the delicious taste of gooey caramel go wrong in the Republic's books?  This bar was as sure to get a high rating here as Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld were to secure hefty payouts from private corporations due to their high connections in the U.S. government.   The difference, of course, is that Whittaker's actually earned its status.

The dense block of Whittaker's creamy milk base is exactly what's required to house the ample amounts (36%) of caramel stuffed within. If you're anti-caramel you'll despise this bar, but if you're anti-caramel, what the hell are you doing reading a review about caramel chocolate bars? 

I tried the bar at two different temperatures, fresh out of the Alabama box and fresh out of the refrigerator.  It worked both ways, though the chocolate was firmer out of the fridge.    Whittaker's packs another winner.  If they can send a carton of these to the Nobel committee, perhaps they company could be up for a Nobel Peace Prize someday.  Lesser candidates -- we won't name whom -- have earned 'em.
