Dairy Milk Bubbly Mint

Place purchased: Canada

Number of reviewers: 7

Appearance - 7.7

The Dairy Milk Bubbly Mint bar is segmented into different sized bubble-shaped pieces. The bar has an aerated milk chocolate base below a white, mint-flavored layer and another coating of milk chocolate. The thickness of the mint layer in each piece differs due to the variation in height of each piece. 

E: Really bubbly! Intriguing, but mostly weird. 
J: Cool raised and interesting aerated appearance. 
S: I really like the bubbly chocolate bar.

Flavor and Taste - 7.1

At first, the flavor is mostly just sweet milk chocolate. The mint flavor develops as the chocolate is chewed and the milk chocolate flavor dissipates. The mint flavor is slightly cooling from the menthol in the peppermint oil.

C: Nice minty flavor, reminds me of Andes mints, but a little bit creamier. 
E: Disappointing. Way too sweet, kind of sour, and ultimately lacking in punch. 
J: Great cool mint flavor. Sweet chocolate.
L2: Minty is good, not too much. 
S: Soft mint, blends well with the chocolate.
Y: Overall yummy. A little sweet to me, though. 

Texture - 7.2

The mint layer is thick and creamy in comparison to the aerated chocolate, which is rather crumbly. While this does provide textural contrast, it is not a pleasant one. 

C: Nice and creamy, soft.
E: Crumbly and chewy simultaneously. 
J: Very smooth and creamy chocolate. The air bubbles aren't doing much for me. 
L2: Smooth mouthfeel.
S: Interesting when you let it melt on your tongue. Creamy. Top half is creamy, but thicker.
Y: Smooth and soft.

Aftertaste - 6.8

The aftertaste is pepperminty and slightly sweet. 

C: Minty chocolate. 
E: Weird, medicinal minty aftertaste.
J: Mostly mint.
S: Mint is stronger in the aftertaste. 
Y: Clean. 

Overall - 7.2

Overall, I enjoyed the flavor of the Dairy Milk Bubbly Mint bar and how it transitions from milk chocolate to mint. I do not think the aerated chocolate works well in this application, however, as it gives a crumbly texture when chewing. 

E: Really not a fan. 
J: Great candy!
