Caramello used to be one of my favorite candy bars, I don’t remember when we parted ways but I’ve slowed down to probably one of these every 2 years. I’m usually not a fan of caramel but I enjoy the soft, non-teeth suctioning texture of Caramello. When I saw Galaxy Caramel, I just had to compare. I don’t know much about Galaxy, just from what googled, it’s “European” and owned by Dove Chocolate.
It’s not demonstrated well in this photo but the caramel is pretty gooey. Ethan says the characteristics of the caramel and chocolate compliment each other. I agree the softness of the caramel blends well with the creaminess of smooth and creamy milk chocolate Cadbury is so well known for.
The sections are kind of half-cylinder instead of square. The caramel is more dense and isn’t as gooey but it is still the “gentle” kind of caramel that leaves teeth alone. Ethan felt the two flavors still go well together but seemed more separate somehow. Also he thought the chocolate and caramel were not as smooth as Caramello.
Ethan preferred Caramello but I almost couldn’t tell the difference other than the thickness of Galaxy’s caramel. I’d say if you’re craving a chocolate/caramel bar, these two are similar enough in quality that I think anyone would be happy with either. Of course I’m sure there are die-hard Cadbury or Galaxy fans that would find the other unacceptable but I really think these pretty interchangeable.
