Cadbury’s Cinder Toffee Cake Bars (Sainsbury’s)
Cinder Toffee (i.e. the wonderful filling you get in a Crunchie bar) is by way of its very nature: crunchy. However this Cinder Toffee cake bar, is completely soft, and I have to say this did somewhat put me off.
The cake bar consists of a layer of vanilla sponge, soft cinder toffee filling and a chocolate flavoured coating. I was pleasantly surprised to discover when I tucked in, that these cake bars really do taste of Cinder Toffee. There is the wonderful flavour of burnt butterscotch, and it isn’t overwhelmingly sweet, instead it is mellowed by the light fluffy sponge and chocolate tastes. The consistency to the Cinder Toffee flavoured layer is soft and creamy, and I actually rather liked it, it genuinely does taste of Cinder Toffee despite not having the texture.
Think I might get another a pack of these, as they would be nice to give to those participating in Halloween ‘Trick or Treat’ as they are decorated with pumpkins on the pack. If there are any left over from that, I’m sure I could find them a home!
