Cadbury Boost Cake Bars
Advantages: tasty, good texture combination
I can remember my dad buying me a biscuit boost chocolate bar when I was a child and they became an instant favourite of mine. So on a recent shopping trip I spotted the Cadbury boost cake bars and had to try them. I buy cake bars quite frequently to add to lunch boxes and like to vary which ones we eat so it was nice to have a change.
I purchased the Boost cake bars from Tesco at a cost of £1.49 for a pack of 6 bars. These are not the cheapest cake bars around but I was eager to try them when I saw them even though I was going against my normal rule of 'if it's not on offer do not buy it'.
The boost bars come in a blue plastic wrapper that has a cardboard tray inside that holds the six individually wrapped bars snugly together to ensure that they do not get crushed. Each bar is wrapped in a thin blue plastic wrapper which has the Cadbury and the boost logo on the front. There is very limited information on the individual wrappers only a description of the cake bar and basic allergy information. Full product details can be found on the main outer wrapper.
The cake bar is described as 'a delicious chocolate sponge topped with chocolate crème, crunchy biscuit pieces and smooth caramel, all smothered in Cadbury milk chocolate.'
These are one of the most substantial and nicest cake bars that I have tried. Some of the cake bars available are a little light and airy and I do not feel like I have really eaten anything when I have had one so feel myself reaching for a second. While the boost cake bars are quite chunky and make me feel like I have had a lovely substantial sweet treat. The cake bar has a lovely combination of textures from the light bubbly sponge, the smooth crème, crunchy biscuit pieces and the creamy Cadburys chocolate. Although these cake bars have all the characteristics of a boost bar they do not really taste like one. This is not a criticism or a bad thing as the bars are lovely and extremely tasty in their own right. I would have liked to have seen a little more caramel in the bar as it was hard to distinguish the taste of this amongst the flavour of the sponge and crème which seemed to dominate. Both I and my husband liked these cake bars very much and will certainly be buying them again.
