Dairy Milk - Roast Hazelnut & Honey Roast Cashews “Bar of Plenty” [Cadbury]


Yesterday I wrote about the Dairy Milk Toffee Apple bar, and today we continue that range with another new flavour, this time Roast Hazelnut & Honey Roast Cashews. Opening the pack this time I tested the aroma, and found I could pick up on no other flavour than that of a regular Dairy Milk bar. I guess this isn’t that surprising as you wouldn’t expect the ingredients to have strong smells.
There is a good portion of nuts mixed within the bar, although the predominant ingredient appears to be hazelnut. The cashew nut is present but the flavour isn’t as pronounced, and the honey coating adds a very light crunch and sweetness, but nothing significant. I have to say this bar is rather like a ‘posh’ version of Dairy Milk Whole Nut, this is not necessarily a bad thing. Nuts and chocolate are one of my favourite combinations, and despite it not being an adventurous flavour, I enjoyed every bit of it!

Other bars in the range:
Toffee Apple
Berry Fruit and Vanilla Shortcake

This was my favourite of the lot. I think the shortcake will be the most popular though.

Where can you buy Bars of Plenty? Tried Tesco and ASDA but no luck.

I've heard that you can find them in Sainsbury's... but I'm not sure they are on proper general release yet. Rest assured it won't be long before they are in all the supermarkets and newsagents. Hope you find them soon - do let me know what you think of them too.
