“Chocolate is happiness that you can eat.” – Ursula Kohaupt
I don’t know about you guys, but chocolate is my absolute favourite! It is my pick-me-up; a little treat; & a special kind of “treatment”. I have cut down on the amount of chocolate that I am eating now compared to my younger years (thanks metabolism!), but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still savour every mouthful when I have one now.
Recently Cadbury brought out a new range of Limited Edition chocolate slabs, & I knew that I had to try them out! Husband isn’t a fan of sweet things, but when he saw these he volunteered immediately to assist me with taste-testing & giving his opinion.
Looking at the slabs, I had no idea which one I would like the most but I was VERY excited to try them out & took them to the office as well (I work in an office of women so this went down well) to try get a range of opinions. If I had to rate them from least favourite to number 1 on my list it would look like this…
4. Caramilk inspired by P.S.
We all found this very sweet & you could definitely only have a little bit at a time (maybe a good thing?). You could taste the P.S. part of it with the bits of crispy rice flakes & caramel-flavoured cream covered with Caramilk chocolate. I don’t think we would get this one again, but I’m not a fan of the normal P.S. bar.
3. Dairy Milk inspired by Crunchie
A Crunchie is usually my go-to chocolate when we choose a bar as a treat, so I was sure that this would be my favourite. I love the crunch of the honeycomb, & it wasn’t overpoweringly sweet either. This was husband’s number 1! Crunchie always claims that they “take chocolate to a new level & combines taste & sound to deliver joy in each bite” – I can’t disagree with that at all.
2. Dairy Milk inspired by Astros
Astros always evoke such happy memories of my childhood & the little biscuit bites are absolutely DIVINE. Don’t judge me – these were always added to my popcorn at the movie house so they could melt a little & you would eat them together to get a taste sensation of salty/sweet/crunchy. Did anyone else do this? This slab is so yummy & will definitely be back on my shopping list again – but it was pipped to the post by the last one…
And… NUMBER 1: Dairy Milk inspired by 5Star
This is the one that I was looking forward to the least when I got all 4 slabs! I find the bar very sweet & the caramel centre often ends up sticking my teeth together. However, in the slab form it was simply incomparable to the others. The caramel toffee & crunchy biscuit pieces blended so beautifully with the Dairy Milk & it literally made my mouth water. I (& everyone else who tried it with me) would recommend this to absolutely anyone who likes chocolate, & anyone who needs a little “happy-treat”.
“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” – From the film ‘Forrest Gump’
Whilst looking into these yummy chocolates a little more, I discovered that Cadbury has recipes on their website as well which all look amazing, & can give you all another reason to buy more (as if you need it…)
These are available at all major supermarkets, so make sure you get out & try them for yourself before they disappear. And if you have tried them, which was your favourite?
