We all love chocolate, but with so many types out there it can be difficult to know which bar is the best. Courtney Pochin tried five different bars of milk chocolate in attempt to find the tastiest.
Marks and Spencer Swiss Milk Chocolate, 125g, £2
Based on packaging alone, this one looked the best, patterned cardboard packet with pretty typography on the front and shiny foil inside, but I doubt that's what you want to hear about. The chocolate inside is smooth, creamy and comes in good sized pieces, much bigger than those you find in brands like Cadbury, and sleeker looking. The bar is just the right size, not too thick and not too thin, it's got a good taste and I could easily demolish it all in one sitting. The wrapper does say that this bar contains ground hazelnuts, so not one for everyone, but honestly if no one had told me, I'd never have even known they were there.
Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate, 100g, £1.75

Lindt is a big name when it comes to chocolate so trying this one was a must. I'm a big fan of the Lindt truffles you can buy and this is the bar equivalent. The only real difference between the balls and the bar was that this was slightly more gooey if anything. It was incredibly rich, so couldn't manage to eat much of it in one go and noticed the bar is much smaller in size than the others, so not too sure about value for money.

Sainsbury's Taste The Difference Belgian Milk Chocolate, 100g, £1.45
I was looking forward to trying this one as the packaging says it contains a hint of caramel, which I'm a big fan of. The bar can also be bought with a hint of hazelnut, depending on which you prefer. However I was disappointed to discover I couldn't pick up the caramel notes. In terms of packaging and chocolate bar design this one is almost identical to M&S, but it just doesn't taste as nice. Wasn't very impressed, slightly bitter taste.
Green & Black's Extra Fine Organic Milk Chocolate, 100g, £2
I'm going to come out and admit I've never had Green & Blacks chocolate before. This specific bar is made with 37pc milk chocolate. I enjoyed the size of the bar, which comes in massive squares, much bigger than the others. However when it came down to taste, I wasn't a fan of this one at all. Perhaps it's because its organic, but I thought it had an odd aftertaste to it.
Galaxy Smooth Milk Chocolate, 114g, £1
I've always loved Galaxy chocolate, but oddly enough I didn't think this one was a winner. Perhaps it was a bad bar or perhaps the standards have dropped a little since I last had one, but this didn't taste quite as good as I remember. The chocolate is smooth and creamy, just as you would expect but something about it just wasn't right.
