I have always enjoyed eating chocolate, all kinds really. So when I saw that Cadbury had released a new ‘Medley’ chocolate bar I thought I should give it a try.
Since Cadbury are now owned by Kraft I always worry that recipes will start to change, and luckily the original Dairy Milk still tastes wonderful to me.
The bar I’m reviewing today is the flavour of dark chocolate chips, caramelised hazelnuts and raspberry pieces. I love the idea of this combination, and it contains fruit so it’s one of my 5 a day right? I wish! Ha ha!
So how does it taste? I know you’re all desperate to find out… It’s the delicious creamy taste of Dairy Milk with delightful crunch of hazelnuts, the bitter taste of the dark chocolate, all accompanied by the tangy sweet raspberry pieces.
What I liked the most about it was the delicious creamy taste of the dairy milk among all the textures inside on top of the chocolate itself. Crunchy Nuts, Melt in the Mouth Raspberry Pieces and Soft Dark Chocolate drops. I won’t lie it was rather moreish!
As you can see in my photographs the majority of the ingredients are scattered on top of the dairy milk chocolate. There is a lovely texture as you bite through because of the contrast between the caramelised hazelnuts and the freeze-fried raspberries. The dark chocolate and nuts must be added while the milk chocolate is still drying during production because many are integrated in the pieces, but the raspberry is all on the top.
I personally think this bar is a keeper, if you like Cadbury Wholenut and enjoy the taste of Raspberries then I recommend you give this one a try.
This final images give you any nutritional information you might be interested in, and to finish the review, a macro shot of the chocolate itself. I have already eaten this bar now and just writing this review makes me want to get more.
So where can you buy this chocolate bar? I looked in a few supermarkets and eventually found it in Sainsbury’s, but It’s also in larger Tesco stores and I’m sure within a few weeks it will be available in most places.
