WITH EASTER being early this year, a lot of new Chocolate quickly came onto the shelves to compete with all of the Eggs and other themed goodies. Cadbury’s Dairy Milk was one of these and they released two new bars aiming to create unique taste infusions by using differing elements.
There’s the tangier combination of Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts and Raspberry pieces or the sweeter combination of Dark Chocolate, Biscuit and Fudge pieces. The main composition of the bar is your standard Dairy Milk chocolate so there’s no need to be put off if you don’t really like Dark Chocolate. It doesn’t really add much of a flavour to the Chocolate but is more noticeable in the Biscuit and Fudge bar.
The more flavourful of the two bars is the Raspberry one. It gives a real tang to the Chocolate which is quite rare, but not unique, and it actually makes the Chocolate taste a bit more refreshing and arguably moreish. The Biscuit adds a nice crunch to the other bar and opposes the soft chewy Fudge but there’s not really enough of either of them to drastically change the Chocolate Bar and therefore doesn’t really taste that memorable.
Both Chocolate bars are nice and the combinations work quite well to offer something slightly different to ordinary bars. But if you’re only going to try one of these bars, you’ll enjoy the Raspberry more as it offers more flavour and that tang to oppose the creaminess of Dairy Milk chocolate.
