Dairy Milk Golden Biscuit Crunch (Tesco) [By @Cinabar]



On a recent visit to Tesco I came across two new Dairy Milk bars, this is the first of the two and a review for the other will be put shortly! This one has a biscuit base, and from the picture looks like it has more biscuit content than a number of actual biscuits on the market (I’m looking at you Rolo Biscuits). On top of the base is a crème layer followed by a coating of smooth Dairy Milk.
I really like the combination of textures in this bar, the biscuit was firm and crunchy, but the chocolate in combination with the crème layer added a soft contrast. The flavour was quite sweet, and the biscuit section added a good baked flavour. The crème layer was surprisingly pale in colour, and like a soft fondant in texture. It added a sweet creamy vanilla taste to the bar which worked well with the other ingredients. The chocolate was good old Dairy Milk and added that rich combination of cream and cocoa that only Cadbury can. Together they made one indulgent bar!
It’s a close call to decide whether or not this is more of a biscuit or a chocolate bar. As I said there are certainly biscuits on the market with less biscuit content in them, but I don’t think this is going to go well dunked in a cup of coffee. To be fair it’s not really trying to do that. It’s trying to mix the biscuit layer and make a munching chocolate not a dunking biscuit!
Either way the flavour works. I loved the sweet tastes of the biscuit, fondant and chocolate and found it a well balanced flavour. It’s not too rich, but does provide a wonderful sweet chocolate hit.
