DESCRIPTION OF SNACK:
SNACK LOOKS LIKE (Optional):
SSI RATING (SNACK SATISFACTION INDEX - 1-10): 7.9
Chewy. Smooth. Entirely new consistency doesn't crack or fall apart as easily as it used to. Neater to eat. Very dense. Note: 2.05 oz!!!!!
Not as sweet, caramel is harder and less wispy than before. when you bite into the caramel you get a blunt edge, where you used to get strands of wispy caramel "spider webs" leaking off the edge of the bar.
1ST 4 INGREDIENTS:
LAST 4 INGREDIENTS:
New "plastic" like packaging. Instead of a classic look and feel, Milky Way is now trying to be "hip" and "cool"; it has Generation X writing style on it, the color scheme is different. My guess is this new packaging enables candy bars to withstand longer shelf times and temperature extremes.
DO I RECOMMEND YOU TRY THIS YOURSELF? (YES/NO - EXPLAIN):
YES, it's a good standby snack, I must admit even though it is a great snack, I liked the old one better. It was sweeter and even though less "dense" had a certain charm to the air pockets inside.
HOW CAN THIS PRODUCT BE IMPROVED?
Do what Coke did and have a "new" milky way and an "Old" milky way. Some will like the new, neater, more caramelly MW, and some will like the old one, so why not keep both!!
IN THREE WORDS OR LESS, SUMMARIZE YOUR EXPERIENCE:
Denser than original.
