Every good Sci-Fi knows that Doctor Who’s favourite food is fish fingers and custard. Although I’m sure after thousands of years of time travel his tastes buds are more attuned than mine, I still don’t think I’d like to give the delicacy a try. However it has become inspiration to this new chocolate bar found exclusively in CyberCandy. Before you worry though the inspiration they took from the meal came through as deep fried breadcrumbs in custard flavoured white chocolate. Thankfully there is no fish involved, I’m all for the weird but do prefer my chocolate to be a sweet treat.
It is neatly packaged in a sci-fi style blue card packaged with a window showing off the chocolate. The back is sealed with a cute sticker about bow-ties being cool, but of course we all knew that.
The bar itself has a very pale yellow creamy colour to it, and looked like an appealing bar of white chocolate. The texture of the chocolate was thick and creamy, and the flavour had nice tones of vanilla and white chocolate. The fried breadcrumb come though as a bit of a crunch, hard bits intermingled within the smooth white chocolate. They didn’t really add any flavour, just a crunch to the texture, but I think I’d have preferred it being smooth. If you are going to feel the breadcrumbs they really need to add a bread or batter taste to the flavour, or a bit of something, the texture without the flavour is a bit weird. Is not bad, it just feels like a missed opportunity.
This bar is aimed at the novelty market, and it certainly looks the part and contains nice flavoursome white chocolate. The breadcrumbs are inoffensive, and are probably better than actual fish fingers! I like packaging and the theming too, and do think these would make a perfect treat for the Sci-Fi fan in your life.
