As I was picking up a few bit and bobs in Nisa Spectre spotted these two new products, it seems Cadbury is rolling out its branded chocolate bars into mallows! Last year we saw them launch as biscuits, which were rather successful. As a Turkish Delight fan any new product with that filling gets me excited. ;-) I decide to open the Turkish mallow pack first...
What is it with products being smaller than expected when you open the pack? I know I’ve written about the phenomena before, and I should be getting used to it, but the first thing I thought when I pulled back the wrapper was that they looked like mini mallows. Perhaps the problem is that I’m used to the larger Tunnocks Teacakes? Putting the size aside I bit in, and I tasted the item. My next thought was where was the Turkish flavour? I know the picture shows a fair sized dollop but there wasn’t that much, and taste was lost amongst the chocolate, biscuit and mallow. It was a very mild subtle rose taste, and as such was a bit disappointing. There is nothing bad in the flavour, and the chocolate was sweet and milky but I was after a strong Turkish delight fix and this just didn’t provide it. Spectre liked them which shows that they didn’t have a strong flavour as he detests Turkish Delight!
As before they are smaller than you’d hope for based on the packaging size. There are actually ten in a pack which helps makes up for it and does makes them easier to share. The brown sugar caramel flavour is a little stronger and is a bit more noticeable amongst the other ingredients, but it is still on the side of mild. As with the Turkish Mallows, the biscuit is firm and pleasant, the mallow thick soft and fluffy and the chocolate sweet and creamy. They were nice mallows, but fans of caramel may have preferred a stronger hit.
