It has finally happened. Frey sent me a ridiculously generous box of their products to review in the summer of last year, and I’ve racked up about 15 reviews since that package arrived from Switzerland. I thought it would be never-ending, and that every time I reached down into the box it would be like Mary Poppins’ handbag and another bar would appear. But alas not- today’s milk and Hazelnuts review is the last. Which, given how impressive most of their chocolate has been, is bad news. Sad face.

After a couple of savoury crisp reviews recently, I’m back into some unusual chocolate in the form of Cadbury Australia’s Caramello Roll. Essentially these seem to be a Cadbury’s attempt at recreating the Rolo, with each packet containing about a dozen little chocolate pieces containing golden caramel. It’s bold from Cadbury Australia to try and imitate (or even beat) Nestle’s Rolo because, well, the Rolo is A) bloody good and B) bloody successful. But those crazy Aussies obviously have no fear, and they’ve taken time out from having a BBQ wearing cork-hats (well, probably- they’re Australian) to have a crack at bettering it.
I found the 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp in an import shop in Meadowhall, Sheffield. I hadn’t seen one before although I was vaguely aware of them, and as the packaging was quite attractive I picked it up and bought it without really stopping to look at it much. Which I then briefly regretted when I got home and had a proper gander at it.
After yesterday’s rather poor limited edition bar from Mars which turned out to be the near enough identical twin of the regular Snickers, I’m delighted to actually have something a bit more different today on day three of Snickers Week. The Snickers Dark. I’ve never tried Mars’ dark chocolate before I don’t think, as their Mars Dark (or Midnight Mars or whatever it is called) has never appealed to me much. Hopefully the product will be more exciting than the More Nuts bar anyway.
So I’m 21. Which, as any mathematicians out there will know, makes me a 90’s Kid. This means loads of things; Men In Black 1, Fresh Prince, Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, footballers with short shorts that looked more like hot pants, The Spice Girls (well, that was more my sisters but much as my taste in music has evolved towards drum and bass, I’l admit to being susceptible to a bit of ‘girl power’, and I’ve been known to sing along whilst on a night out. Alcohol eh…) but most importantly Freddos. Little Cadbury’s chocolate Frogs. So imagine my confusion when the Caramello Koala arrived from Aimee’s ‘Straya package.
How you view Cadbury’s Eclairs depends on who you are exactly. They’re a kid’s dream, a dentist’s livelihood and a parent’s nightmare all rolled into tiny little balls. I’ve been eating them since I was tiny (when a bag of chocolate Eclairs was one the ultimate treats) but haven’t had one for a good number of years. Until now.
