Philadelphia Milka (milk-chocolate cream cheese)

I come to the game a bit late. The product has been on the market for a while. It's Philadelphia cream cheese with Milka milk chocolate.  At first glance, it sounds either wonderful or kind of gross. My take was "kind of gross."

The package is pretty small. I think a container might get a normal family through one breakfast. At nearly 3 euros a package, it's pricey.
It looks more like Nutella than cream cheese. I like the fluffy, crumbly texture of cream cheese, and wondered how that wold work with chocolate. It doesn't: it's a real cream thing, not very cheesey. 

Tried it on Swedish toast. I do love Monoprix's packaging. 

OK, ready (I really need to fix my glasses... a cracked lens and a damaged temple just doesn't do it).

The first bite.


It's good! Too sweet, and the aftertaste is not that good, but while it's in your mouth it's quite tasty. I don't think I'll try it again though. I prefer butter and jam. It would be worth comparing nutritional info with Nutella (which is much cheaper). 
Not everyone agrees that this is a good thing.
