I inherited a sweet tooth from my mom. I got her recently to stop eating chocolates after sharing some icky facts about what is inside chocolates. I stopped struggling with sugar cravings once I tried the keto diet for a few months (lost 10 kg in the process).

Recently a store selling imported chocolates opened near me so I decided to buy a few chocolates. I used to be able to eat quite a lot of chocolates daily, now my capacity to handle sugar has severely diminished.

I wanted to write a post reviewing some of my favorites, so here goes

1) Galaxy Ripple Milk Chocolate Bar

The layers inside with all these holes.

This had the unmistakable taste of galaxy chocolate. In this one the milk tastes more rich, the sweetness is not as biting, it is more mellow here. But the texture is more layered, breaking so easily to the bite. The outer layer is a crisp galaxy layer which becomes thick and refuses to melt, it's viscous and sticks to the throat. There is a similar aftertaste just like the regular galaxy it's not too different. I'd recommend a pass on this. You can rather buy the cheap 20 Rs one rather than spend 100 Rs on these 538 kcal sticks.

2) Cadbury Twirl

Thick chocolate bar

This chocolate here has a rough graverly texture. It feels like many stacks of stiff noodles make up the chocolate. A dry powdery type of chocolate after a few seconds. Pretty much the classic Cadbury chocolate but sweeter. It's hard to control how fast you swallow it and within seconds it's over and it leaves you wanting more. 114 cal is worth it. 285 Rs for 5 sticks, 57 Rs is a steal for the Cadbury twist.

3) Cadbury Wispa

tons of holes.

This chocolate is really chunky and solid. It breaks out in large pieces and gives the illusion of strength. It surprisingly turns into powder and disappears quickly in your mouth. The texture is as if there are millions of tiny micro holes permeating the solid trademark Cadbury chocolate. A very unique taste where you feel like you wished it lasted longer, maybe you wish it had some caramel or something viscous that let the taste last longer. This has none of that, it is just chocolate. A bar will be over within seconds...  139 cal for 71 Rs is definitely worth a try.

3) Galaxy Minstrels

The cover looks large - Pleasure worth sharing
notice how one gem is cracked
Some gems were cracked like the one on top. It is quite large but all of them taste the same and feels boring.

It cost 220 Rs and is 40 grams, 200 kcal. It takes like galaxy but in gems form. I remember gems which was colored tasting better. This chocolate is better eaten in a bar form. But the quality is still good, the outer cover is crispy and the inside has a nice milk chocolate. Considering value for money, presentation (some gems were cracked) and taste. I say 3/10. Don't bother buying this one.

4) Nestle Crunch

crackle like things

The aerated nature of this chocolate makes it taste more light.

The chocolate is soft and it is clear that it a milk chocolate. There is a crunchy crackle sprinkled inside. Definitely 7/10, a lot of quantity for 210 Rs - 100 g. A total of 2147 kcal means this is a doozy. It goes down smooth and tastes good but it does not feel distinctive, the chocolate itself feels very ordinary.

5) Whittakers Creamy Milk Block

note how it is not filled with air bubbles and is just solid chocolate. 

A rich solid chocolate block. It has a nice after taste that feels thick. The chocolate is heavy and thick, feels like reliable bricks. The sweetness is not too much and it takes time to dissolve into a viscous paste. 8.7/10 this chocolate is worth a try. You won't remember it for years to come but it is a solid option when you are in the mood for a dependable chocolate. 2350 kcal per 100 g means the complete package is gonna set your diet plans back by a lot.

5) E Wedel Milk Chocolate

It tastes like ordinary chocolate. Really good choc0late but still ordinary. It is not cheap, it is sweet and tasty but it feels natural. It feels like like it lacks any character. You could use it in recipies, a solid chunk of milk chocolate can be melted on cake, put in milk shakes, used to make shavings. It costs only 550 Rs for 220 grams which is great value for money. Only 770 kcal which means it is not as heavy as other chocolates. I would recommend this only if you want to share with many people or use in some dish. 6/10

6) Maltesers Teasers

Just like the cover indicates there are nice crunchy pieces heavily packed within the chocolate. It becomes chewy after a bit and adds to the wonderful aftertaste. The chocolate itself is soft and sweet, it seems rare compared to the nutty pieces but in fact the base of the chocolate is where it lies, the hemispherical dome is just chocolate. It will be over before you know it, for 300 Rs and 533 kcal this 100 g chocolate is really worth it. 8/10

7) Milka Caramel Luflee Bar

The packaging looks cheap, the cover is glossy and lame. It is made in Austria but I was skeptical because of the color scheme and quality of printing. The chocolate is soft and airy. The caramel is too little, I wish they had filled a larger bubble. The chocolate is not too rich or sweet in the moment but after the fact it feels really filling! It has a nice aftertaste. The bar is quite large at 250 g but expensive too. Try eating it chilled for optimum taste. I think it is 7.5/10 and worth trying atleast once.
