Cadbury’s Double Decker

001I’m always seeing Double Deckers (not the busses… well ok…I see plenty of them too) but it is a bar which has never, ever captured my imagination. In fact, I didn’t even know what a Cadbury’s Double Decker was until I bought this one to review. And given that I write about chocolate 3 or 4 times  a week and know a fair amount about chocolate bars as a result (AKA I have no life) that is saying something. The Double Decker has just never floated my boat.

Novipiu Milk and White Chocolate Cereal


I have previously reviewed the Novipiu White Chocolate and Sicilian Citrus Peel bar which I brought back from a holiday in Malta last summer. Well I remembered bringing back two bars of Novipiu’s, and after much frantic searching through all of my worldly possessions, I found their Milk and White Chocolate with Cereal bar still in the front pocket of my suitcase. Miraculously it was in perfect condition too- I had expected it to resemble a punch bag. Thankfully not.

Nestle Lion White

I’ve taken the rule book and lobbed it out of the window for today’s review. By that,  I mean that I’ve previously managed to find and review the rarer varieties from the Lion range; their Lion Peanut and Lion Pop Chocs… and to go with those I finally found and bought the Lion White which I’m reviewing today. But I STILL haven’t done a regular Lion bar yet…which is totally counter-intuitive and against ‘the rules’. So that’s me: Dave the chocolate reviewing maverick. Society (and basic logic) would have wanted me to start with the traditional Lion bar to allow for comparisons. But screw that. So here it is: the Lion White.

Kinder Country


I wasn’t actually intending on reviewing the Kinder Country bar today. Instead, I was wondering around attempting to find a regular Kinder Egg- the semi legendary Egg is normally everywhere in the UK, but I went into half a dozen shops and only found one selling them…and they were all smashed in. Sad face. Fortunately, just as I was beginning to contemplate giving up and buying something boring to review, a corner shop turned up this beauty. The Kinder Country.

Milka M-Joy Peanuts and Flakes

I can’t quite believe that this is my first Milka review that I’m writing. The company, owned by Kraft, have been around for more than 40 years in Europe and has managed to gain a foothold in the UK market over the past 2-3 years and become a supermarket shelf regular. Instead of one of their usual 100g bars from a supermarket though, I’ve got something a little different of theirs to review- the M-Joy Peanuts and Flakes. I found this hidden away in a weird Eastern European specialist store in Norwich and snapped it up straight away, although I did think at the time it was a bit of a weird flavour combination…I mean, Peanuts and cornflakes? Righhhhhht Milka, good one lads.

Kinder Cereali Summer

Well I’m coming towards the end of the ‘holiday collection’ of chocolate that came from Malta about 3 months ago. I’ve tried to save some of the more interesting and odd stuff until later, and interesting and odd are definitely adjectives that can be used to describe the Kinder Cereali Summer. From the description alone, this actually sounds fairly straight forward and run of the mill- ‘A top layer of milk chocolate with creamy white chocolate and cereal pieces.’ Just sounds like a normal Kinder bar with a few cereal bits chucked in right?


Nestle Lion Pop Chocs

Having heard about the existence of ‘Rolo Sticks’ (literally long, thin sticks of Rolos) I immediately dispatched a London based friend to go to Sam’s 99p stores, where they were rumoured to be, and buy me some. Unfortunately they didn’t have them (if any readers know where they can be found- please do tell!) but my friend picked up something else for me instead… Lion Pop Chocs. I knew that Nestle had released Kit Kat Pop Chocs in England already, but these Lion Pop Chocs appeared to be a French import.
