Taste Test: Milky Way Simply Caramel

Taste-Off: Milky Way Original vs Simply Caramel

It's been a while since I've consumed a traditional candy bar, but I'm a sucker for comparison taste tests, so when we received a shipment of Milky Way's latest product, Simply Caramel, I was dying to compare it to the original.

Unlike the classic Milky Way, which contains a layer of nougat under a layer of caramel, the interior of the Milky Way Simply Caramel is — you guessed it — nothing but caramel. I was expecting it to taste a bit like Rolos, only in bar form. In the end, I wasn't too far off — compared to a Rolo, the Simply Caramel had a milder, less pronounced caramel flavor.

It's ironic that the Simply Caramel has 2 grams more fat and 25 more calories than its original counterpart, because it seems to be skimpier on the flavor (and is actually 0.14 ounces lighter than its original counterpart). The original has an added textural component with the nougat, and more of a fudgey chocolate flavor. In the end, I'll stick to what I know best — a classic Milky Way.

Have you tried the new candy bar? What were your thoughts?

It sounds like it'd be a bit too gooey for my taste. I actually like the nougat part of the Milky Way; I'd miss it if it were gone.

I like as much caramel as I can get. But the original will always be the best.

The Simply Caramel seems like the Mars Caramel which is just straight up chocolate and caramel. It's good when you need a jolt of chocolate, and caramel is a little less fattening tha other chocolate-bar fillings. I like it but it's not something I would choose every time.
