Advantages Unique packaging, 3 different flavours available, looks inviting.
Disadvantages Bland taste, pricey for what you get.
Recently I was walking around my local Superdrug looking for some hand wash when I walked past their confectionary selection. Looking at me from a shelf below the standard chocolate bars from so many companies was a Lindt look-a-like blue card packaging with the famous "Cadbury" brand label and I first discovered this product way back in 2006 under a different variety in dark chocolate and it didn’t go down well, back then. I just grabbed this bar of chocolate and chucked it into my shopping basket not even thinking of looking at the label. You see, I do that at times with no fault of my own as Dairy Milk and I go back to well before I was even five years old! To a lesser extent, there are some things in life you just don't question, especially if it's chocolate and it has "Cadbury's" written on it.
Per 100g I paid £1-19 from Superdrug but ASDA now sell this bar at £1 per 100g making it a bit cheaper.
So I begin to unwrap one of the little mini bars and after the foil has been bunched up into a tiny little flick-able ball, I am faced with a two-tabbed rectangle that carries the familiar Cadbury's scroll. What I was initially surprised to find was the fact that each mini bar is shiny and gleaming which I think looks a bit strange.Cadbury goes as far to suggest that what the consumer has been asked to pay for here is a truffle filled chocolate bar using the same recipe from the famous Cadbury Dairy Milk stable. I've only been wishing for something like this for years from Cadbury's in milk form, so I was expecting a lot here having to put up with ("oh, okay then") Guylian's Pralines from time to time; but after a couple of sea shells and squares (if you buy the single bar) I get quite sick feeling like I've had too much as opposed to just guzzling a couple of bits. And I know Cadbury's have their own Dairy Milk praline bar but I find it far too sickly after three or four bits.
However from my analysis, the innards look like soft truffle but the taste isn't rich, neither is it anything out of the ordinary.
