Magija - A new Chocolate Dessert

Monday 14 January 2019

One of the things I enjoy about being a Food Blogger is that from time to time I get to enjoy new food products.  I am really picky about what I choose to try actually. I get offers all the time that I turn down.  I only choose things which I think might benefit my readers or that I think they would be interested in.  I was recently asked would I like to try these new chocolate dessert bars called Magija.  Made from a sweet cheese curd, it sounded intriguing enough to inspire me to want to try some so that I could tell you about the experience. 

This is a chilled dessert bar containing chocolate chunks, surrounded by sweet curd and all wrapped up in a bitter chocolate glaze.  A very innovative creation which originated in Lithuania, it m akes th most of fresh, calcium-ric curd cheese which has been gently fluffed and beaten to make it light and creamy to eat.

Roughly about the size  in length of your index finger (but as thick and dense as a candy bar) it needs to be kept in the refrigerator because it is fresh . . .  ready to use as a delicious pudding option or as a light bite to indulge in.  It contains no artificial colours or flavours.  I had no idea that Lithania was one of the leading exporters of dairy products in the world!  I like learning new things, and this was a new thing for me.

It tasted like a really dense chocolate cheese cake,  almost with the consistency of a New York cheese cake  . . . . studded with real chocolate bits.  I loved the outer coating of dark chocolate.  I am a huge fan of dark chocolate and I really enjoyed the satisfaction of the crisp snap when biting into it.  Altogether it has a delicous, rich flavour, not too cheesy, but with just a slight tang, which was quite agreeable. They are not overly large, but they don't need to be.  This bar packs a lot of flavour punch for its size and we both quite enjoyed this experience. 

If you would like to exerience this for yourselves, these delicious bars are available now, nationwie through Sainsbury's, Tesco's and other specialist food retailers at an average cost of under £1.00.  They can normally be found in the ethnic food chiller cabinet alongside the cheese and meats from Eastern Europ.

Note - Although I was sent these bars for free to try out, any and all opinions are completely my own.
