Cadbury's Scary Orange Cake Bars (Sainsbury’s)

Last year I remember the Fiendish Fancies arriving at Halloween, but I don’t remember many other products in that style. This year the Fiendish Fancies are back, and we have also seen Cinder Toffee Cake Bars and Toffee Apple Bakewells.
In addition to the Scary Orange Cake Bars above, I have also seen one other seasonal cake product which I’ll be writing about very soon, so they seem to be very ‘in’ this year. I quite like the idea of the individually wrapped seasonal cake products, as they will make a nice item to give out to trick or treaters, and they are a little bit different too.
These cake bars are a scary orange flavour, which essentially means that the jam inside them is blood red (well dark pink/red if I were to be picky). The vanilla sponge is light and sweet and the jam layer has a decent strong zingy orange flavour which I really liked. In combination with the chocolate coating the whole thing really works, nice flavours that all blend together. How did they miss out on creating this product as Scary Blood-Orange Cake Bars? That would have been really cool!

Bought them for the T or Ts and ate them all.

Oh well - only had one lot anyway and I'm out tomorrow.
