Milky Way Crispy Rolls

Our friend Matt (the one who brought back the Olympics candy) also picked up a great assortment of mass-market candy bars and I’m going to try to sprinkle those into the repertoire in the next few weeks.


This Milky Way bar is nothing like any Mars product here in the States. Each little stick is a tube ala Pirouline but instead of being hollow, these have a wonderful buttercream filling. Then the whole thing is dipped in chocolate. They smell sweet and milky, like walking into an ice cream parlor.

The chocolate is very sweet, but smooth, with that European milk taste. The cookie shell is crispy and flaky with lots of micro thin layers. It tastes like a fantastic ice cream cone. The cream center is firm but still soft. It’s buttery smooth without any graininess to the sugar. There was no English ingredients list, but my German and my tongue is good enough to recognize hydrogenated oils.

Again, here’s a tasty little morsel that you just can’t get in the States and sometimes I wonder why. The package is a scant 25 grams, so even though it’s very high in calories per ounce, the package only has 130 total calories for the two fingers (about 150 per ounce, much less than a pure chocolate bar). Even though they look delicate, I got them in perfect condition, unbroken and unsmashed.

Note: Milky Way in Europe is actually what we know of as Three Musketeers in the United States - it’s a fluffy nougat covered in milk chocolate.

    TheMatt - excellent tip! I’ll keep an eye out for them, though the packaging looks like something I’d find in the cookie aisle instead of the candy section.

  4. Very interesting looking candy… too bad they don’t have it here!

  5. Oh my God, those look so good! I’ll have to look around for the Nestle ones, too, though they’re not quite as appealing.

  6. I wonder if someone on eBay is selling them.  It’s where I go to find Japanese candy, if J-List doesn’t have it.  I think someone need to create a site like J-List, except sell European stuff.  That would be awesome.

  7. Hi! I really like Crispy Rolls, but I cannot find them in Spain (I’m Spanish). Does somebody know where can I buy them in my country? Thank you very much.

  8. I found these at an Acme in Akron, Ohio so apparently, you can find them in the U.S.  And they are very very yummy.  Mm.

  9. My b/f’s parents brought these from germany and they’re awesome!!!
    We personally bite the top off both sides of the cone shape bar then use it as a straw.
    it makes the milk filling flow into your mouth and then you can just it the outside when it’s soft but not too “melty” (TimTam style) we can’t get them here either, but we make sure to ask whoever’s going away to Europe…
    Try and enjoy

  11. Hey, I’m Samo and I’m English.
    I can quite safely say that these are the best chocolate treats in the world in my opinion, you can eat and eat and eat them, and not feel sick, they’re light so you don’t feel fattened up, they cover every element of crisp, smooth and creamy, also, they’re at a good price of 30 English Pence, s’all good.

    I’m getting one tattooed on me in tribute to them wink  Long live the milky way crisp rolls smile

  12. Oh these are sooooo good and we can’t find them anywhere in the States thank God, and only one place in Canada, thank God, because when we do find them, like in Prague, we buy 10 “to save for later” and then eat them all right away.  Nothing like them!  Thank God!
