Cadbury Dairy Milk - The Raspberry Shortcake (Poundland) By @Cinabar

Cadbury Dairy Milk - The Raspberry Shortcake

Cadbury have released three new Dairy Milk chocolate bars, the idea is that the public taste each one and then can vote for their favourite which will stay for sale. You had me the moment they said new chocolate, I’m looking forward to trying them. Weirdly these bars are first to appear in Poundland, where I found all three at the till. The lady serving me said that this Cadbury Dairy Milk - The Raspberry Shortcake was her favourite so I think it is a good place for me to start. I have to admit I love the sound of this chocolate, it is so very summery.

I opened up the Cadbury Dairy Milk The Raspberry Shortcake bar and it looked from the top like a regular Dairy Milk bar, but the underside showed an uneven surface where all the goodies were packed in. These were even more apparent when I broke a strip of the chocolate off.

The bar has the classic thick melt of Dairy Milk, rich and sweet. The chocolate is the most dominant flavour. I love the added texture from the crunchy pieces, I am a fan of texture, however the crispy bits were flavourless. There wasn’t enough of the raspberry bits, which were freeze dried, and as such they only add a delicate hint of fruity flavour. Dairy Milk is a strong chocolate and it is does over power the fruitiness a bit too much. Some cubes of chocolate you could barely taste the raspberry at all. I think this bar Cadbury Dairy Milk The Raspberry Shortcake was a lovely concept but poorly executed, the raspberry should have been a strong zingy flavour not lost in an ocean of sweet thick chocolate.
