Galaxy chocolate is an everyday purchase in Britain, a lot like the Hershey bar in the U.S. But the similarity ends there. This is one of the best chocolate bars I've ever eaten, and while it's not packaged as a beautiful gift, I'd be thrilled to be presented with one (or more) of these on any occasion!
As a milk chocolate, Galaxy contains a minimum of 25% cocoa solids, less than what you'd find in a dark chocolate bar. It is made with skim milk, cocoa butter, and some vegetable fat, and "sugar" with no origin specified (sucrose? fructose? cane sugar? corn syrup? we don't know, and they're not telling!), so it undoubtedly doesn't have any health benefits. It's definitely not a low-cal food; if I'm reading the British label correctly, the 100 gram bar contains 542 calories, so I really try to eat only half at a time.(Notice I said "try;" once I start, it's very hard for a chocolate-addict like me to stop until it's gone.)
What the Galaxy does have is taste benefits. The chocolate is rich and creamy, and melts in your mouth. If it were easier to find, and just a little less expensive, I'd give it five stars. For taste and enjoyment, that's what it deserves. You can find it at specialty groceries and on-line, and if you love chocolate, I recommend you try it out. You may never eat a Hershey or Nestle bar again.
