Malted Milk

chocolate-keyboardLet’s switch back to the 80’s here for a moment. Think about your favorite chocolate bar as a child. Does anyone here remember those malted milk chocolate bars?

I was eating a 3 musketeer’s bar at work when my buddy/co–worker (who is my Mom’s age lol) came in and eyed what I was eating.  He asked what it was and I told him the name of the chocolate bar, and he then said “Oh yea, like a malted milk bar?”

I then shouted “YES! Why did they stop making those?”

I’m not such a huge fan of the 3 musketeer’s bar, as I was a huge fan of the MALTED MILK! Why did they even stop making this bar? I remember as a kid it was one of my many favorite chocolate bars to choose from and now when I get the urge to have that bar, I grab a 3 musketeers and I am thoroughly disappointed once again, as it’s not the same recipe or ingredients as my childhood favorite. 3 musketeers is almost sickening after you’re finished three quarters of the bar.

We reminisced for about 3 minutes, and both agreed it should come back into stores.

I can’t even find an image on it, on google to show you all the deliciousness that it used to be!

Google image search has failed me once again:

  • Malted milk
  • Malted milk bar
  • Malted milk chocolate
  • malted milk chocolate bar
  • malted milk wrapper
  • malted milk white wrapper

  1. ^ Nope, that’s not it.

    I think I remember seeing those Cadbury ones as a kid too. But there was another one. It was a plain white wrapper and I think the lettering was blue and red (predominantly red). I couldn’t find it anywhere on google.

  2. Oh my god, it totally is that!! You’re awesome. Now all I need is to e-mail this company and ask if they still make them. I’m dyin’ for one haha.

  3. Actually I have had a Milky Way, the small fun-sized bars that you get at Halloween, they were selling them for 30p in Ireland when I was there. I always used to stock up when I went to visit my family haha. They tasted exactly as I remember Malted Milk bars. Mmmm…..

  4. Have you ever had a Milky Way? I know they’re only in the States, but just wonderin’ if you have, and if they are at all similar.

  5. I have never heard of that chocolate bar! I’m not into the 3 Musketeers, ick. They try to push their bar as being “low fat” which is a load of bull. The York Peppermint Pattie is better and has less fat.

  6. I found this page in my search for the elusive Malted Milk bar.

    I am a BC boy who is starting to realize the wealth of chocolate bars we had when we were young in the 60s and 70s, before the brands got bought up and killed off.

    Malted Milk was on my mind after my sister-in-law and I were playing “remember when” last weekend. I loved that bar.

    By the way, I remember when 3 Musketeers came along, and I have to admit I liked it too. It was a little heavier, and I like that. (I still go for the heavier bars, like Wunderbar. More for the money.)

  7. i definatly remember them malted milk bars, as im sitting here eating a 3 muskateers bar wondering what happen to my all time favorite cholcolate bar that i miss. it wasnt so long ago that we were able to buy them in stores , not even ten years ago, i do remember it was switched from neilson to cadbury and i was actually quite dissapointed because i found it just dident taste the same, now id love to have even a cadbury one. I also remember back in the early to mid 90’s you could win off the inside wrapper of the bar, i cant remember what it was you could win or how, but man i wish they would bring them bars back!

  8. We had the Malted Milk Bar in Canada…it was my favourite…. I don’t know why they stopped making it… I’d love to have one right now! ;-)
