Cadbury’s Crunchie and Caramel Biscuits (Sainsbury’s)



These biscuits were in a strange place in my local Sainsbury’s, they were on a promotional stand, in the chocolate and sweet isle, and not in the biscuit section. I think perhaps the reference to Cadbury’s chocolate bars, confused whoever were putting these out, because they are undeniably biscuits.
The Caramel version consists of a layer of buttery shortbread biscuit, with a thick layer of runny caramel all coated in Cadbury’s chocolate. I loved that these biscuits contained proper caramel and that the chocolate proportions were generous. All the flavours went together really well, and made an absolutely fab biscuit.
The Crunchie biscuits were also good. The biscuit base on this variety was a rich golden coloured and was flavoured with cinder toffee. On top of this is a layer of Crunchie pieces, broken quite small, but a decent layer all the same, and again it is coated in Cadbury’s chocolate. The Crunchie biscuits were sweet and rich and the cinder toffee flavour was lovely and sweet and undeniably Crunchie. Another rather tasty biscuit in the range.
I thoroughly recommend both of these biscuits, it is hard to call it between them, but they both represent their chocolate bars perfectly, with lashings of flavour.

Trust a Brother - she's little bad boys are off the hook!

When I was in Australia in 2007 we got seriously hooked on Cadbury's Squiggle Tops (avaiable in Crunchie and Caramel), they were exactly the same as these, but with a lumpy bobbly top.

My wife and I nearly shead a tear on finding these last week.

Whoop whoop!!!

Well it is licensed by Cadbury - so has to meet their standards and brand. Fab biscuits though, so chocolatey.
