Plenty of choccies = giveaway

In the world of chocolate, or at least in Willy Wonka’s world, anything is possible. While I’m still waiting for a spicy pepper variety or dark and milk blend to hit supermarket shelves, in the meantime Cadbury’s Bar of Plenty will more than suffice.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Bar of Plenty
Nothing to do with New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty (although an easy typo could get you there), Cadbury’s latest Dairy Milk range offering is said to match “unconventional ingredients”. Perhaps I myself am just unconventional, but I don’t see a great deal atypical or uncommon about either flavour. Strawberry shortcake and mixed nuts anyone?

Nonetheless, I’m not complaining with a few freebies in the mail to taste test. The ‘Berry Fruit and Vanilla Shortcake’ flavour is packed with both ingredients, in addition to the sweet Cadbury milk chocolate. The shortcake maintains its crunch and flavour (nothing particularly new), while the berries are a different story.

I’m yet to identify the berries – maybe you can (scroll down for giveaway details). Ensconced in the chocolate; they’re thoroughly dried and hence a bit chewy, quite sweet, completely seedless, red-ish in hue and slightly elongated in shape. They look like not-so-dry goji berries, but they don’t really taste like them. The ingredients unhelpfully list them as ‘berry fruits’.

I seem to know a lot of people who don’t like nuts in their chocolate – all the more for me, really. The ‘Roast Hazelnut and Honey Roast Cashews’ is an extension, I suppose, of the hazelnut Dairy Milk bars which are one of my favourite varieties. The cashews don't seem to have a distinctive flavour like the hazelnuts, but its honey coating gives it a crackly texture in addition to the crunchy nut.

Chocolate giveaway!

I'd like to see Smarties combined with Jelly Beans in a dark chocolate block. Would be both colourful and combine 2 of my favourite childhood lollie favourites :-)
