Bournville Old Jamaica (Sainsbury’s)
This is a ‘new’ old product as it is a re-launch, but it is also the sister product to the newly launched Bournville Orange. For those who want a reminder of the original Old Jamaica, here is a link to it on the Cadbury’s site: http://www.cadbury.co.uk/ourproducts/yesterday/Pages/Yesterday.aspx (last item on the page).
I will be honest and admit that I can’t give you a direct comparison between this and the original product as I don’t remember the flavour well enough. However I can tell you all about this bar.
It consists of the dark but sweet Bournville chocolate packed with juicy raisins and with a good hint of rum flavouring. The rum is quite strong and personally I would prefer the flavour turned down a notch. The raisins are sweet and add a stickiness to the texture which is rather lovely. All in all a good bar, but if pushed to choose I would opt for the Orange version, as the flavour is a bit more balanced.
Orange and raisin – now that is an idea that needs exploring!
