New Cadbury Crunchums (WH Smiths @CadburyUK) [By @Cinabar]

There seems to be quite a few new goodies coming out Cadbury at the minute, which can only be a good thing! I recently reviewed the new Dairy Milk bar Strawberries and Creme, and now this grab bag has appeared on the shelves too.
Like the strawberry bar that was made with yoghurt, this too has a slightly European feel to it. Launched at the same time in France was a new product from Milka called Snax Cranchito which looks remarkably similar and shows the influence form Kraft I think.
I opened up the Cadbury bag, and found envelope shaped pieces of cereal dipped in chocolate. I don’t think these would work with milk, for those going down the cereal thought process! ;-) Once I bit in, I realised that the pieces were hollow, and very crunchy and crispy in texture. The flavour wasn’t what I was expecting at all. The cereal taste is almost like a tortilla chip in texture and flavour. Yes, it is even a little bit salty and wholesome, which worked perfectly with the sweet Cadbury chocolate coating them. I love that mix of sweet and savoury, my senses just can’t get enough of it.
These were very moreish and as you bite in you find your hand reaching for another, the bag did not last long. They really do tickle the taste buds.
I think if you are a fan of pretzels and chocolate, then you really aught to give these a try. They deliver the same sweet chocolate and salty tones that are just so moreish to munch on.
