Cadbury had a competition in which members of the public could come up with new chocolate bar flavours. Now, three of those chocolate bar designs have become reality, but only one will make it into long-term production. Chocolate lovers everywhere are being asked to vote for their favourite one! That’s a great marketing technique to get people to buy all three, isn’t it? But we succumbed to the great marketing technique and did just that yesterday evening!
S saw the raspberry one. I then remembered reading about them and said we had to buy the coffee one too. And then there was just the orange one left – so into the basket it hopped!
Unfortunately I don’t have any photos because – well – we tucked into them last night. But I’m not one of those bloggers who only feels that they can write something when they have a picture to go with the text, so if you want to know what they look like, you can find them on the Cadbury inventor page or keep a look out for them in the shops!
This post is not sponsored – we just like chocolate!
the raspberry shortcake
Milk chocolate studded with raspberry pieces, white crisp pearls, and shortcake.
This was S’ favourite and my second favourite! I don’t usually go for raspberry things, but the zinginess of the raspberry went well with the milk chocolate, and you don’t see a lot of raspberry chocolate. In Germany it’s easy to find things like strawberry chocolate, but the UK market doesn’t seem to go for it. So I’d be happy to see more fruity chocolate around!
Simply the zest
Orange flavoured milk chocolate with caramel pieces and digestive biscuit chunks.
Love the name, not so sure about the bar. I was thinking biscuitty Terry’s chocolate orange, but no. I’m not sure I even agree with the description here, but I did copy it from the Cadbury site. It tastes to me like normal chocolate, caramel, and orange flavoured squishy bits. I thought they were raisins at first. I’m still not entirely sure what they are, but I’m not a fan. Shame really as I thought this would be my second favourite!
Milk chocolate with coffee cream and digestive biscuit pieces.
Yeah ok it was a foregone conclusion! Unless they really did something to screw it up, this was going to be my favourite! Because coffee!
It’s quite rich because of the cream. I like dark chocolate with coffee, but this is not a strong coffee hit like you would get with an espresso bar. It’s meant to be latte, so creamy and milky. I like it, but couldn’t eat too much at once!
If I had to pick only one winner, it would be the coffee. However people in the UK don’t seem to like that much either – no more coffee creams in Quality Streets, which made me vary sad! I generally import my coffee chocolate from Germany!
So if the coffee bar doesn’t do so well in the votes, I hope the raspberry one wins.
What about you? Do you like fruity or coffee-flavoured chocolate? Have you tried any of these bars? If so, which one do you want to win?
