We don’t get as many review samples as you might think here at Foodstuff Finds, so when we do get post we do all get rather excited! The other day, quite unannounced I received a parcel from Cadbury no less, containing two new bars of Dairy Milk. The box they came in is a bit special, and to be honest could only have come from Joyville. ;-) There are pictures at the bottom of the post, take a look and you will see what I mean!
As it happens I have already written about the Golden Biscuit Crunch bar, but the parcel did do a good job at reminding me that I am yet to write about this Toffee Popcorn version. To say that this bar contains popcorn would be a bit of an understatement. It is more a ton of popcorn shaped into a bar, and then sealed with lashings of Dairy Milk chocolate!!! It’s a seriously chunky bar. The bar still managed to break along the marked lines quite easily when I snapped a piece off.
The popcorn is light inside the chocolate, so it doesn’t feel too big, in fact its airy nature makes it very easy to munch on. The texture is a complete pleasure. I love how each piece feels different. You bite through the chocolate and it is soft but crunchy, then it just gives. It sort of melts away when you chew. Although there is tons of popcorn this doesn’t mean that there isn’t plenty of chocolate taste, because that is all there too. There is loads of creamy sweet tones, and plenty of cocoa – and it all blends perfectly with the popcorn and toffee flavour.
It is a seriously satisfying bar, and a total pleasure to eat. This is a great alternative to popcorn for a night in, ideal for munching on with a Friday night film.
