Review: Whittaker's Milk Caramel
Whittaker's Milk Caramel
Posted: 25 October 2010
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?

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
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

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.
Whittaker from New Zealand makes milk caramel chocolate in New Zealand. It's a New Zealad bean to bar. Their New Zealand chocolate
contains 33% cocoa and 30% milk solids and it has 36% caramel. The Chocolate Republic with Doug at
Doug's Republic doesn't need to journey to Porirua taste their creamy milk caramel that's tasty
