Malted Milk

Name: Malted Milk
Brand: Cadbury
Place Purchased: London Drugs (Vancouver, BC)
Price: unknown
Size: 48 grams
Calories per ounce: no info on wrapper
Type: Chocolate/Nougat

On the outside the package promises malt. On the inside of the chocolate bar delivers sweet and bland, fluffy nougat. If you’re someone who likes Milky Ways or 3 Musketeers, this’ll be a good bar for you.

The bar is built like this: a foamy nougat that’s slightly malty with a strip of caramel on top and then the whole thing is covered in sticky sweet milk chocolate. I know, you’re thinking Milky Way. So am I. The nougat is actually more malty, a little more flavorful than an American Milky Way, but not enough that I’d go branding it with the word MALT on the package.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all that bad. The best part about this bar was the caramel. It’s slightly salty and was a good balance to the sweetness of the center and the chocolate coating.

If you’re looking for another version of a Milky Way bar, you’ll probably feel very at home with this bar. If you’re looking for a bar like a malted milk ball, this ain’t it.

    I probably should! I’ve got two other malt candies here to review, the Malteasers (from Canada) and some malted milk balls I got while in Ohio at the Harry London Chocolate Factory.

    I love malt!

  4. In the late fifties and early sixties a malted candy was sold in a roll like Lifesavers. There were two kind a chocolate and plain malted tablet.
    Unlike Lifesavers the malted candy rolls contained solid tablets. I particularly enjoyed the plain malted cnady.
    Do you have aby inforamtuiobn about the this candy? I have a vague memory that Necco made them. But I haven’t found it on their website. RAB

  5. The Vermont Country Store currently sells both plain and chocolate malted milk tablets. Haven’t tried them yet, but they sound interesting.

  6. Ralph: Horlicks used to make malted milk tablets in the 60s. I’m not sure if those are the ones you’re thinking of but I did notice you can still find Horlicks on the web.

    I want to know if anyone knows if you can buy a candy like malted milk balls with little or no chocolate coating?

  7. We have a new store that sells old fashioned candy, if you are interested.  I ordered several boxes of Horlick’s Malted Milk Tablets from them.  I think they are $5.00 a box.
