Cadbury P.S

012I like reviewing rarer chocolate. It feels a bit more special to eat- and today’s review DEFINITELY counts as rare. Cadbury’s P.S bar comes all the way from sunny South Africa, adding another exotic country to the places I’ve reviewed products from before. What is it? Well before I ate it, I couldn’t have told you! I didn’t even know it existed until I was given it as a gift.

Cadbury S.M.S

001

A lot of the stuff I’ve reviewed recently (Mars, 3 Musketeers, Reese’s stuff etc) is well known if not legendary. Today I’ve got something right at the other end of the spectrum, in the shape of Cadbury’s S.M.S bar. I had literally never heard of this in my life before- I thought that an S.M.S was a type of text message?! But here we go- a review of Cadbury’s S.M.S bar.

Ferrero Duplo

After reviewing the Cadbury Crispello on Monday of this week, I’ve got something today which is actually fairly similar in style to review. But unlike the Crispello, which will be (I’m sure) available in just about every shop going in a few weeks time, the Ferrero Duplo is something that I was totally unaware of until I found it and bought it. You’ve probably all gathered, from the strange foreign chocolate I occasionally review, that I like a good peruse of foreign food shops from time to time. And that was exactly how I found this 58p Ferrero Duplo bar.

Cadbury Crispello

A few weeks ago, Cadbury announced that they were releasing their first new ‘single’ chocolate bar for more than a decade. By ‘single’ of course, I mean that whilst they have released many a new large sharing bar (for instance they have recently released new 100g bars in Oreo, Toffee Popcorn, Shortcake and Toffee Nut) their permanent range of 40-60g chocolate bars has remained unchanged. Until now.

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.
 

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.

Thorntons Bakewell Tart Chocolate

After reviewing the Thorntons’ Banana and Custard Chocolate, and Jam Roly Poly Truffles a few weeks ago, I finally got round to buying and eating the other bar in their ‘Best of British’ range. Bakewell Tarts are- for those of you who haven’t encountered them before- pies with a jam and almond sponge filling. This chocolate bar was an attempt from Thorntons to imitate those flavours, and was described as ‘almond flavour milk chocolate with raspberry and waffle pieces’.
