Milka, It's Not Just For Breakfast Anymore

Milka chocolateWait, I think that's orange juice and I refuse to say "Got Milka?" No matter, have a candy bar instead.
Milka chocolate is as seductively smooth as Barry White on Whacking Day, and Milka's Strawberry Yoghurt bar is a fine balance of tangy creme filling (with dried strawberries) and thin layers of Swiss chocolate.
This chocolate is fun and delicious, not all serious and conceited like that *stuck up dark chocolate (please write me if you've ever spent $250.00 on a truffle). Maybe Milka is the people's chocolate, it even has a purple cow on the wrapper. (Oddly enough I think I saw a purple cow sometime in the late eighties near Prairie du Chien.)
Milka chocolate, created in Switzerland in 1901 (Wikepedia fact of the month), is now made in Germany and other European countries. This particular 3.52 oz Strawberry Yoghurt bar was made in Germany and eaten straight out of the fridge right here in Southern Wisconsin.
Kraft calls Milka their number one European brand, surpassing the mighty Toblerone.
*Knipschildt's La Madeline au Truffe, for those of you too lazy to follow the link, costs $250.00 for one stinkin' chocolate mushroom. Coincidentally, it looks like something we found along the river in Praire du Chien.
The Knipschildt's ("nipshits?") website says it's a rare French Perigord truffle in 70% Valrhona dark chocolate, heavy cream, sugar, truffle oil and vanilla for the ganache, rolled in cocoa powder on a bed of sugar pearls in a silver box.
Pass the Milka.

I don't like you telling people to eat a candy bar for breakfast. Not one bit.
