Critics test Milky Way Simply Caramel.
Milky Way Simply Caramel, 1.9-ounce bar, around 89 cents
Jennifer Mastroianni: Spatula up
Being a food writer is not all lobster and crème brûlée. Over the years, I’ve had my share of food poisoning, once found a Band-Aid in a sandwich, and even got drenched by a broken restaurant toilet that gushed through a ceiling during lunch.
But believe me, there are perks. Like today, when a Milky Way Simply Caramel arrived in the mail. The bar has just two ingredients: Thick, creamy caramely goodness enrobed in rich luscious milky chocolate. For caramel fans like me, it is pure nirvana. Man, I love this job.
Dan Kane: Spatula up
I heard Jennifer Mastroianni, my next-door newsroom neighbor, let out a distinct moan, and I was almost afraid to look. Clutched in her mitt was a partially eaten candy bar. “Try this,” she insisted.
The new Milky Way Simply Caramel bar offers an enveloping caramel experience, with a milk-chocolate coating. Happily, the caramel is creamy enough that it won't pull out your expensive dental work.
