Wow – there are new exciting bars from the lovely Cadbury on the shelves. I couldn’t resist picking up this rather lovely looking Cookie Nut Crunch combo, the packaging is bright and the ingredients all look wonderfully intriguing. When I opened up the wrapper I liked the look of the chocolate pieces. All have a marked texture on their surface by way of design, and do look very smart. There are also pieces of cookie quite visible in the chocolate, particularly bulging appetisingly on the underside of the bar.
The chocolate itself is also rather, well, marvellous. There are plenty of ingredients to give it lots of texture, and both the biscuit taste and hint of nuts shine through really well. The nut is actually a mix of caramelised almond and hazelnut pieces, and both just give a sweet nutty hint throughout. This is a fun bar, but it’s also reminds me of chocolate filled with nut biscuits. With each mouthful you get a different mix of goodies, sometimes focussing on the biscuit, sometimes on the almond, sometimes the hazelnut but each mouthful is lovely.
It’s nice to see such a fun bar available here, reminding us that chocolate doesn’t have to be too serious, just tasty and enjoyable. This gets a total thumbs up from me, and I am looking forward to any other combinations that the lovely folks at Joyville can come up with to mix with their Dairy Milk.
Talking of which there is another bar that came out when this one did, it’s another Marvellous Creation called Jelly Popping Candy Shells but I had a very sneak preview back in November 2012, when I imported a bar via CyberCandy from Australia (yep they had the news bars before us)!
