Cadbury Dairy Milk - Simply The Zest (Poundland) By @Cinabar

Cadbury Dairy Milk - Simply The Zest

This is the third and final bar in the selection of new Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate bars that have been launched as part of a public vote. I have already written about “The Raspberry Shortcake” which was lacking raspberry taste and the “Choca-Latte” which was coffee based and which I loved. This bar is called Cadbury Dairy Milk - Simply The Zest, and consists of orange flavoured chocolate with pieces of almond caramel.
The other two bars had quite a strong aroma when I took the wrapper off but this one had just a mild citrus hint. The other bars had a quite a lot of content visible too when the pieces were broken off, but this bar didn’t have show much.

I tried one of the pieces of chocolate and found myself thinking that it needed more orange. If you are going to name a bar “Simply The Zest” it sort of comes with quite a bit of expectation that the chocolate is going to have a strong orange taste, I think it was far too mild in orange citrus tang, it was just a gentle background flavour. I did like the almond caramel pieces (think Orange Daim Bar) the crunch and sugary hit was nice. In fact the more I do think Orange Daim Bar the more I found myself thinking I’d rather be eating one of those. This Cadbury Dairy Milk - Simply The Zest bar was okay, but it wasn’t magic. The same goes for The Raspberry Shortcake, neither had anything offensive about them. The coffee one, Choca-Latte rocked my world, and is something new for the British market which is desperately lacking chocolate coffee combos. I know where my vote is going.
