Kinder is a line of Italian chocolate by Ferrero that has a pretty wide distribution. It’s pretty popular all over Europe and you can find several varieties, including Kinder Bueno and the infamous Kinder Surprise, here in the United States. I spotted this Kinder Country in a local store and decided to give it a try.
The bar is exactly as it’s illustrated on the box: milk chocolate filled with a milky center and cereal pieces. Upon opening the wrapper, the bar has that nice sweet dairy smell that is so common with European chocolates. The taste is up there too: sweet with a strong powdered milk flavor. The creme interior is indeed milky. The texture is a bit fluffy; it feels more like a whipped nougat than creme. The cereal pieces add a nice light crunch and a subtle salty hit.
So overall this European version of a Nestle Crunch/Hershey’s Krackel bar is a nice change of pace. It’s good for when you’re in the mood for something different but want something familiar and reliable.
