“ Brand: Cadbury / Type: Dark „
I have always been a big fan of Cadbury Bournville and so decided to try their Bournville Deeply Dark range. The variety in question contains a hint of coffee. The first thing you will notice about this chocolate bar in comparison to other Cadbury chocolate bars is the wrapper. The cover of the bar is thicker, and the design of the wrapper and even the way the bar is divided into chunks is much more appealing to the eye. It is safe to say that the bar does appear to have a much higher quality feel to it, and the aroma is intense upon revealing the Darkly Deep bar.
This is real chocolate (60%) and the taste is rich and satisfying. The coffee adds a slight crunch to the bar and the coffee taste is strong without overpowering the plain chocolate bitterness.
I am very impressed by the way in which Cadbury have produced the whole product. They have managed to maintain the intense, rich flavour of the Bournville without overpowering it with coffee. Yet, they have also made sure the coffee flavour is very present. I love the whole design of the wrapper and the bar feels a high quality product with its packaging and aroma.
My one and only concern is that this isn't actually Bournville chocolate - it was made in France. With no country of origin on the wrapper , and no mention of Fair Trade I think that Cadbury have tried to produce a premium branded chocolate bar without the added expense involved. Fortunately for cadbury, I enjoy this bar and am happy to continue buying it knowing these facts.
