Lotte Ghana Milk 
Posted: 20 November 2010    5.0 
Lotte Ghana Milk Except for a slightly darker color and the one word change in both the title and the slogan, the Ghana Milk is the Ghana Mild. There's surely not enough of a difference that someone who loved the milky taste would be turned off by the Mild and vice versa.     
Avg price/gram: USD 0.023   Cocoa %: 29*  Size: 60g  Korean chocolate 
       

                       *estimated cocoa solid percentage


I dug into this Ghana Milk within an hour of finishing the Ghana Mild.  I wanted to taste how Ghana's mild  ranked against its milk.  The bar's English catch phrase reads ""Let's feel its richness of cacao mixed with the milk taste," an almost word-for-word copy from the Mild bar. 

I don't know the exact cocoa solid content of Ghana Milk.  I knew it had to be higher than the Ghana Mild or the Mild wouldn't be referred to as mild. Just as Lotte was short on creativity by placing a nearly identical English slogan on both the Mild and the Milk, they were also short on creativity in differentiating this bar from the Mild one.   Except for a slightly darker color and the one word change in both the title and the slogan, the Ghana Milk is the Ghana Mild.  There's surely not enough of a difference that someone who loved the milky taste would be turned off by the Mild and vice versa. 

The Milk was just ever so slightly creamier.  My taste bud logic concluded that the cocoa solid content of this bar could only be slightly higher than the Mild bar, if it was even higher at all.  This explains the estimated 29% cocoa solid content, although to tell you the truth, this bar didn't have any more cocoa impact than Meiji's Hi Milk which has only 24% cocoa solids. 

Worth buying depends on if you have a soft spot for the Korjap flavor -- the generic term I give to all similar tasting Korean and Japanese chocolate.  I do have a soft spot for it, but after eating more than a half dozen Korjap chocolate in 48 hours, my soft spot was growing quite hard.        

If you liked reading this, consider savoring these reviews:
