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!

I liked these quite a bit. I tried them whilst in London earlier this month. A kid on the tube next to me kept looking longingly at them, and I asked his mother if I could give him one. This kid was ecstatic...leaving sticky handprints on the window.

Anon I suspect these will be reduced now in the shops as they are a bonfire night / Halloween product - might be worth stocking up!

Stocked up as best i could, still have 4 packs left and have to eat them sparingly. Cannot understand why they are discontinued once halloween is over when they are obviously good sellers.

I know - Ive already started stocking up on Twinings Winter Tea, because that too will disappear soon (after xmas).

I love these. I had my mum post some to me at Uni because they don't have any shops that sell them here. I spent the whole year looking forward to halloween solely for these.
