    I love your writing.

    can just picture the sugar “fruit” sticking to my teeth right now.

    Aw, sad news. I love cookie/shortcake chocolate bars. I suppose there are others out there.

  3. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    hehe yes i was in fact thinking your were quite the dedicated chocolate gal by sampling it at 5.29am!

    I gave my Cadbury stash to a friend who loves the stuff! lol And dachshunds are strange looking but anything that looks like a sausage is good to me! 😀

  5. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh hang on! That sounded so dodgy! 😮 I meant I love sausages. The meat ones. Oh dear…

    I tried this chocolate as soon as i saw it in the supermarket. I was so disappointed and really bummed, cause i thought it was going to have more of a lovely berry type flavour. How misleading….

    “Fruitishness” – best description ever!

    Honestly, I am surprised you bothered to eat this stuff, though props to you for waiting 3 months to write it up!!!

    OK got it. This one came in under the 5 outa 10 bracket. Good to know 🙂

    1. Anna Johnston

      Oh… & I agree… Dachshunds are actually very weird looking….. just sayin’ 😉

    yes I have zero desire to eat chocolate like this – ones with jellies that stick in your teeth. gah! despite the poor quality of this chocolate, this is some top quality prose, sister 🙂
    Idon’t know why cadbury do this – just stick with the oldies, they’re goodies!! plain cadbury, fruit & nut, snack (remember snack?! i loved the pineapple flavour. actually come to think of it, snack = not such great quality. just colourful and fun. it makes me think of primary school seleepovers 🙂 )

    I tried two of this range a few months ago- they were so unmemorable that I can’t remember if I tried this one or not. Sad to say I wouldn’t go back to work out which one I had.

    Poodles are better than dachshunds.

    Yeah, I don’t rate Cadbury chocolate products at all (though I do have a weakness for Picnic bars…) so I’m immediately suss when I see people wax lyrical about these ‘bar of plenty’ bars…

    waiting 3 months to post about this – does that mean that you hoped there the bar would have died of death by sugar by the time you posted so no one reading this would be tempted to taste it – but you know I will now have to look for it just so I can say that is the one Hannah wrote about, maybe I should taste it just to check she is right!

  13. Agnes

    Oh, I haven’t tried this yet one – it’s still sitting in the pantry. No doubt the Boys will enjoy it, they liked the other ones! Maybe you should send the rest of yours over! :p

    The font on this bar always reminds me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – a deliberate mind-trap ploy I presume. I find the smaller sized bars are rather tricky too, although in this case it sounds like 190g is plenty of something else!

  15. Kath Lockett

    (stares down at feet, shuffling awkwardly), I still liked it though……

  16. GirlonRaw

    To me cadbury chocolate just never tastes as good as I always remembered it did as a child.

    I wouldn’t put it past you to be eating chocolate at breakfast time through Hans x

  17. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    Oh I hate sticky-in-the-teeth stuff like this! It reminds me of when I was so excited to find chocolate coated raspberries at my local delicious-scoopiness-store (you know those places.. you go in for one thing and next thing you know you’ve scooped kilos of different delicious things and have bags and bags of chocolate coated randomness and no money left in the bank) and I thought it would be like the chocolate coated dried figs, or the chocolate coated sultanas and be chocolate coated dried raspberries! So great!

    It was chocolate coated raspberry lollies.

    Am no fan of Cadbury, and my trust in your chocolate-judgement further solidifies this opinion (like a hand-made chocolate, slowly setting in the pantry)

  19. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Yeah, I tried that chocolate a few months ago and was disappointed. I love chocolate with cookie chunks in it, but this was really lacklustre. Although I did eat most of the block…..
