With 110 reviews perhaps my own little effort is somewhat superfluous.
I have always enjoyed a good crunchie; I could eat them all evening while sipping my lovely cup of earl grey.
I once played a very exciting game where you had to bite off the chocolate edgings and be left with the honey comb and guess what? I used to do this with maltesers too..now isn't that absolutely marv?
I would imagine people looking in will have tried this wonderful chocolate bar anyway, along with all those other famous names such as mars bar, milky way, snickers and the like. And have you noticed just how many of our fav. chocolates appear to be named after 'space' subjects?
Should you happen to be one of those unfortunates who do not enjoy the taste of honeycomb then you'd really be better off buying some other kind of confectionery.
Mind you, as I like nearly every single chocolate bar there is, I could quite feasibly do a review on an entire selection or the entire stock of my local newsagent.
Crunchies, in my opinion, go best with your cuppa, but if you want to be boring just eat it on its own! I won't tell on you - honest.
And if I just happen to be given a selection box at Christmas, then woe betide the person who dares pick the kind which does not contain this fandabulous chocolate treat.
So go on, go out today and buy yourself a pack You can even get a '3' pack in the pound shop!
I love Crunchie chocolate bars! Who didn't spend their childhood chomping their way through the entirety of Cadbury's back catalogue? And Crunchie is and was always a favourite.
So, for those of you who have gone through life somehow missing the Crunchie goodness, this is what it is: a decent length Cadbury milk chocolate bar with a crunchy (hence the name) honeycomb centre. All wrapped up in a bright and shiny gold wrapper (a little bit of gold colour in your life does no-one any harm.)
Don't be fooled, the honeycomb is not honey-tasting. I hate honey so that wouldn't do at all. No, this is more like a crispy and solid sugar, or perhaps toffee/caramel, mixture with a honeycomb texture - crispy and crunchy. I have to admit, I was one of those kids who runs their tongues over the crunchy part, just for the sensation. I may or may not still occasionally do this - just for nostalgia's sake you understand.
The chocolate outer coat is not overly thick - it's a taste of chocolate rather than a slathering, there to go with the centre instead of overpowering it. And of course, the chocolate is Cadbury's milk chocolate, so of a pretty good quality to begin with.
This chocolate bar is usually priced at around mid-range. So I usually see it at around 63p a bar. Obviously, on offer this can be reduced to 40 or 50p per bar, depending on how good the offer is. I think I've also seen it as high as 75p but don't quote me on that. Considering Freddo's (the universal chocolate bar standard :P) are currently at an extortionate 20p, this is a pretty good price.
Still one of my favourites!
Cadburys is a golden honeycomb bar with a toffee centre covered with milk chocolate I first ate a pierce of honeycomb covered with chocolate when I went to beach one time at age 7 after I was completely in love with the taste .I remember when I first saw the crunchie bar at cadburys world in Birmingham I went to as a child. I've always loved dairy milk so I only used to eat that from the cadburys selection so I never gave Crunchie a first thought until my dad bought me a Crunchie one day and since I was a fan with chocolate covered honey comb I new from then on it has been my favourite chocolate bar. Just like Mars and diary milk Crunchie is in every food and corner shop I go in so it is very hard to resist and I can easily eat more than one.
Crunchies have always been a chocolate bar I have enjoyed. The feel very typical of what a chocolate bar should be. The shape and size is perfect for dipping into when you feel like to have a quick bite, and you can just fold over the foil outside to keep it fresh for later. The wrapping is very appetising and all those years ago when I first tried a Crunchie, was probably the reason I picked it up at all. It has a nice gold shine to it and purple edging to echo the Cadbury logo which is also positioned in the top left hand corner. The ends of the wrapping are very easy to rip an so I tend to open up a small triangle, and open it from the fold from them, trying to open as little as possible as I have seen the effects of a left out Crunchie, and it isn't exactly appetising.
The typical ordinary sized Crunchie bar is about the length of my palm which is quite long for a modern day chocolate. Every time I find myself in that chocolate mood in my local corner shop, the size of each sweet and chocolate seems to slowly shrink with every visit. Perhaps its life's way of telling me to eat less chocolate. There are also miniature versions which come in multipack selections, the kind you get around Christmas, which are probably a bit more adequately sized as that's how much I tend to eat in one sitting.
The Crunchie itself contains milk chocolate and honeycomb throughout the middle. The milk chocolate glaze is the perfect thickness so that you get a good amount of both flavours, and neither overpowers the other which would make it too sweet for my tastes, or too dry. Together they have a moist, chewy taste that is perfect for the occasional treat. I do find it a little difficult to finish because of the consistency of the chocolate, as my teeth tend to hurt if I eat too much of it and the Crunchie especially has this effect.
The cost of a Crunchie varies depending on where you buy it, but for me it is usually 60-80p, although my shop is quite expensive. For what you get that's not too bad, although I do tend to prefer chocolates that have kind of portions, like the rows on an Aero, as it guides me how to eat it and makes it seem like your money has gone further. You can buy them pretty much anywhere, from supermarket to corner shop.
I would recommend as the taste is excellent and it is quite a unique combination I enjoy. The wrapper and chocolate itself are both appetising and often encourage me to buy just from looking at it across the selection of chocolates below the till. If I am buying a chocolate bar, I often act on impulse, and so the appealing nature of the wrapper is especially effective. The taste is the most important thing though, and the honeycomb and milk chocolate, especially the composition, is very tasty and is something I will continue to buy.
Crunchie is a solid chocolate bar with a honeycomb filling. With each satisfying bite it snaps off in your mouth almost in perfectly chiselled pieces. The 'snap' is definitely one of its small perks.
I tend to buy these when I'm bored of regular chocolates, or sometimes I'm just craving that chocolate honeycomb goodness.
With each bite there is no crumbling with this chocolate bar. It snaps almost perfectly with no mess.
The tastes work well together and the honeycomb isn't overwhelming, despite there being so much of it, it is very much a CHOCOLATE bar.
The price is ridiculous, but that's not the fault of the Crunchie itself, chocolate bars in General have risen to ridiculous prices - 70ish pence seems to be the norm around here.
The Crunchie isn't to everyone's tastes. I suppose it's a love it or hate it kind of chocolate.
I'm not a regular chocolate eater myself, but Crunchie is often my chocolate of choice. The fat content isn't too bad either, especially when compared to many other comparable chocolate bars.
It's a chocolate bar. But damn, that snap, crunch and then feeling it dissolve in your mouth... Nom nom is all I need to say to that.
Cadbury's Crunchie bars have been around for getting on 100 years and they are still a firm favourite for many people and can be found on pretty much every confectionary stand in the country.
Personally my love of Crunchie bars comes from a combination of their taste, and the fact that there is not a bad amount of calories and fat in them for such a tasty and good-sized treat (compared to other chocolate bars)!
A Crunchie bar comes in a shiny gold wrapper with the words 'crunchie' written on the front in big red letters. It's 50g in weight and whilst many chocolate bars seem to have gradually shrunk over the years, the Crunchie is one which still appears to be around the same size it always has been!
The Crunchie bar itself is mainly made from honeycomb, and this is completely encased in a smooth, even covering of Cadbury milk chocolate. The layer of chocolate is fairly thin but is still thick enough to give a strong chocolately flavour and texture. This is a good contrast to the crunchy interior of honeycomb, which really melts in the mouth. Taste-wise, the honeycomb doesn't have an overpowering flavour, it tastes quite sweet and faintly of honey, and then the flavour of the chocolate is the thing that comes across the most. Personally I love Cadbury chocolate and I think a lot of people do, so for me this is a great tasting bar.
As I mentioned previously, a Crunchie bar isn't as bad calorie-wise compared to other chocolate bars, obviously it's not a low fat product, but as a treat I find it compares quite well to other bars. I personally follow the Slimming World diet plan and find it quite easy to fit a Crunchie bar into the plan without using up my full treat allowance.
There are 10.3g fat in a Crunchie bar and 185 calories.
They can be purchased at most supermarkets, newsagents, and other confection retailers. I usually pay around 60p for an individual one but of course this varies. I rarely buy them separately as they are available as a multipack too where I can often get a pack of 4 for £1 or 8 for £2.
I am only removing one star as even though they're not too bad compared to other chocolate, Crunchie bars are still not a healthy food choice and can only be eaten in moderation!
I know it isn't Friday, but sometimes it's any old excuse to review a chocolate bar with me :)
Today I am reviewing the Cadbury's Crunchie. A product which automatically makes me think of Fridays (thanks to their "Thank Crunchie it's Friday" slogan which has been going for as long as I can remember), that "I'm so excited I just can't hide it" song and images of chocolate balloons and planes flying everywhere, crashing into things and producing huge explosions of honeycomb. Ain't advertising grand??
I bought this bar from Boots for 70p which (sadly) is an average price for a chocolate bar these days.
The bar comes in a shiny gold foil wrapper.
Inside the chocolate bar is in one piece (as opposed to having sections that can be broken off and shared (yeah right!) and is kind of a thin oblong.
The bar is sweet, hard honeycomb, coated in cadbury chocolate. As you bite into the car, the honeycomb breaks very cleanly, it shatters almost, meaning that if you wanted to share this bar and you merely snapped it in half you would get a nice clean break into two pieces.
As you would expect, the honeycomb is very sweet and if you do not have much of a sweet tooth you may have to look elsewhere for your break time treat.
The chocolate coating the honeycomb is a generous thickness and as you always get with Cadbury it is delicious.
I like these bars and will continue to buy them from time to time.
Cadbury's crunchie has been around for ages, first hit the shelves in 1929 and are still as good as ever.
These bars are the lovely cadbury's chocolate wrapped around some delicious golden honeycomb. The layer of chocolate around the honeycomb is the usual cadbury's quality. The chocolate is just the right thickness, not too much so that it takes away from the honeycomb but not too thin where it's not enough either. The balance is just right.
The honeycomb is a lovely golden colour, it's a hard and crunchy texture but not too hard where you feel like you're going to break your teeth taking a bite like some other honeycomb versions. Again, just right!!
Each bar is about 7 inches long and weighs about 40 grams. In one bar there are 185 calories.
One bar usually costs about 70 pence or a pack of 4 is £1.79 but these are often on offer in the supermarkets for £1 a pack. Bargain!!
These lovely little chocolate bars are like a little taste of heaven!! Great for a little treat!! Can't go wrong with a crunchie bar!!
5 stars for me!

I was in Sainsburys this morning picking up a few odds and ends for the weekend when I spotted Cadbury Crunchie four packs on offer for £1, I popped a pack in my basket.
Cadburys Crunchie come in a shiny gold plastic wrapper, the front shows the brand and product name along with the claim that this is a "milk chocolate bar with golden honeycombed centre."
General information is given on the back including ingredients, storage and nutritional guides / tables. Cadburys advise us to be "treat wise" and enjoy eating this chocolate bar as part of a healthy varied diet and active lifestyle. They are suitable for vegetarians.
The Crunchie bar itself is quite substantial in size and has a nice chunky feel to it, it weighs 40g. The chocolate is classic cadbury, it is deliciously smooth and melts in the mouth, it is also the perfect amount, being neither too thick or too thin. The honeycomb centre is a beautiful orange colour and it certainly tickles the taste buds, it is very sweet and...well...crunchy! The flavour work really well together.
Personally I like to eat my Crunchie bar bite at a time, ensuring I get a good mixture of the chocolate and honeycomb together. My daughter likes to nibble all the chocolate from around the edge before eating the honeycomb centre all by itself. Either way, its truly yummy.
I really enjoyed my Crunchie chocolate bar and it certainly gave me that Friday feeling, its the full five Dooyoo stars from me.
Cadbury's Crunchie chocolate bars are an old classic. First appearing in the shops in 1929, it is nice knowing that these have stayed relatively unchanged (not that I was around in 1929!). Over the years the price of chocolate bars has increased quite a lot so I tend not to buy them seperately anymore and prefer to buy in a multipack which is better value, that's my excuse anyway! I bought these recently in Asda when they were on offer for £1 for a pack of 4.
Crunchies come in a gold wrapper with big red lettering across the front. I will always remember the advertising for these, the slogan being 'Get that Friday feeling' and I particularly remember when they sponsored Coronation Street and it was always shown before it started!
The Crunchie is a great combination of golden honeycomb wrapped in a layer of chocolate. It is just one long bar about 7 inches long and if you snap it in half you can see the bubbly honeycomb inside. There is also no scrimping on the chocolate covering aswell it is just right.
Crunchies are one of my all time favourite chocolate bars, I like that they offer something a little different to the usual heavily chocolate style bars like Wispa or Dairy Milk. You can also dip them in your tea and they don't fall apart or go soggy!
Crunchies contain 210 calories.
Definately recommend these for a yummy break time treat! 5 stars
Standard bar of Crunchie.
About 7 inches long rectangular bar.
Comes in easy tear gold foiled paper with the red 'crunchie' name on the front.
Made by Cadbury.
Milk chocolate with a golden honeycomb centre.
By Royal Appointment and suitable for Vegetarians.
Each 40 gram bar has 185 calories and 24.7 grams of sugar and 7.6 grams of fat.
I paid 80p for two in a local Spar but Tesco currently sell four bars for £1 - full price would be £1.79.
The Crunchie I bought was the original version but they have expanded their range now to include, among other items: biscuits, chocolate bars, small bite size Rocks, cake, ice cream bars and ice lollies.
'A golden honeycombed centre surrounded by delicious Cadbury milk chocolate. Launched way back in 1929, Crunchie is a Cadbury classic. Get that Friday Feeling!'
I like the original version of Crunchie - which has been made since 1929 - the old favourites are always the best.
Apparently they were being produced in the Somerset until 2010 when they moved production to Poland.
It is good to see that this bar seems virtually unchanged since I used to have them as a child in the 1960s.
For those who may not know the bar is an oblong of golden bubbly honeycomb covered in a thickish layer of Cadbury chocolate - the top having a sort of ripped effect decoration. I do not know how it happens but every bar seems to have the same structure to the honeycomb - with it being slightly darker in the centre and being constructed of larger bubbles. As the name implies the centre is 'crunchie' and not soft - but not rock hard either.
The honeycomb is made in large slabs and cut by means of a jet of oil so as to prevent crumbling.
These golden bars are instantly recognisable on the shelves and once opened the smell is recognisable and sweet. The honeycomb inside is a deep orange colour and smells sweet and rich. I suppose it slightly resembles the centre of Malterers but is harder and crispier. The thick chocolate is quite sweet but then so too is the hard honeycomb filling. It is hard and firm but not difficult to bite into - so no fear of damaging your teeth on an over-hard product.
A whole bar can be quite sickly so I usually eat half and then have the rest a bit later. If you are out and about it is not messy or crumbly to eat - not the honeycomb centre anyway but the chocolate may flake off a little as you bite into it.
It is not soft and gooey like many chocolate bars which is a refreshing change, even if it is sweet.
Crunchie bars can be used in other recipes - or if adventurous you can even try making your own Crunchies - some recipes use just sugar, syrup, honey and bicarbonate of soda - then after making the honeycomb you just cover with chocolate. Do a google search and you will find loads of recipes - some are simpler than others. Going by the ingredients no wonder it would be sweet.
A read taste to take us back to our childhoods - but also a bar that is enjoyed by youngsters as well.
===Would I Recommend?===
Milk chocolate (Sugar, Dried whole milk, Cocoa mass, Cocoa butter, Dried whey, Vegetable fat, Emulsifier (E442), Flavourings), Centre (38%) (Sugar, Glucose syrup, Flavouring, Vegetable oil).
Crunchie is a popular brand of chocolate from the Cadbury brand. It comes in a golden coloured rectangular packet which is foil like and so keeps the chocolate nice and crisp.
The chocolate is thinly layered over a honeycomb base which is nice and crunchy (hence the name). There is the perfect balance between these two parts so that there is enough chocolate without it being too overpowering and making the chocolate just like an other chocolate bar. The combination is pretty unique and the flavour very delicious. The chocolate is gooey in a nice way so that is clumps together and sticks to your teeth. For some this may be annoying but I think it gives a real child like experience where you get a little messy.
Another good thing about this chocolate bar is that it hasn't shrunk over the years and still remains a nice decent size. In fact sometimes I find myself half way through and then rewrapping it because its a little too much if I'm having a small snack. Like I mentioned before, the wrapper is excellent at keeping it crisp and so it still retains its crunchy texture.
If you leave the bar in your coat pocket or out in the sun for example, you have an issue on your hands, as like many chocolate bars it requires that you eat it at a certain temperature. If it begins to melt the honeycomb becomes too soft and loses its crunchiness. Similarly if the chocolate is too cold it becomes very hard and so when you bite into it its incredibly difficult and isn't a very nice eating experience.
The price of a standard sized bar is about 60-80p depending on how expensive your local store is. Its worth buying in bulk as you can get a pack of 4 bars for £1.25 which is very reasonable especially if you really love Crunchie bars like I do. I would recommend this chocolate bar as its a pretty unique chocolate and great for those who love honeycomb. The price is reasonable and the chocolate very tasty.
Chocolate treats are where it's at after a hard day at work - especially when you drive home in the snow and ice and need something to de-stress. So my weapon of choice on Monday night was a big packet of crunchies. Cadbury chocolate is always my go to chocolate when I feel the need - but given that lots of them were on offer, so I had to make the choice - Crunchie or Flake... Crunchie won!
~*~ Cadbury ~*~
A chocolate company that makes a lot of different confectionary items, from small bars of chocolate to massive ones (which if anyone is offering I'll eat) to crème eggs for Easter, selection boxes at Christmas and many things in between. They have white, milk and dark chocolate on offer, biscuits, and they even make their own version of Jaffa cakes. They own Cadbury World and are the second largest confectionary company globally after Mars, founded in 1824 they're a long standing company have thousands of employees and by the looks of things make a good amount in a year. Considering they keep bringing out new products - there's no wonder they're so popular with most people!
~*~ Crunchie Anyone? ~*~
Open up the golden wrapper to reveal to yourself the chunky finger of honeycomb wrapped up in Cadbury milk chocolate. A good few inches of golden wrapped in chocolate in your hands, the chocolate is its usual silky delight to eat - inside you have the good chunky but fragile honeycomb, which when you bite into it begins to melt in your mouth. The honeycomb is given quite generously in the chocolate bar, which is quite chunky in itself it fills the entire packaging so I normally struggle to get it up the packaging without ripping the packaging off. Which to be honest isn't a bad thing for me, because they get eaten pretty quickly when I've got them anyway, I normally get through a Crunchie in about 5 bites - they are very addictive.
Only problem I have is that I end up with bits of honeycomb in my teeth, which is proof I need a filling maybe... Oh well!
A packet of 4 doesn't last very long in my house, especially after I've had one because the chocolate is so rich and creamy, and I love the taste of the honeycomb so much that they go really fast. Especially if I'm making my Crunchie cakes, get a normal cake mix break up your Crunchie into decent size chunks, I then throw mine in a melted bowl of chocolate so the Crunchie doesn't break up in the oven - whack them in the oven and you have muffins with chunks of Crunchie, taste great but do take up a lot of my packets of crunchies.
The benefit to the single bars of Chrunchie are the fact that you can limit yourself to how many you eat - and how many calories you're consuming if you have the willpower, more so than the big bars because I find I can't stop eating them even though they come in separate little chunks. Especially when they're on offer in supermarkets... However at 185 calories per bar, you might want to be careful how many you consume because they're not especially healthy, and 4.9g of saturated fat, they're in the red for health on the traffic light system.
~*~ Price and Availability ~*~
Everywhere there is confectionary, for the minute they're on offer in Tesco £1 for 4 bars, and they are 3 for £1 on the selection in Asda, but they vary from shop to shop individual prices - you'll just have to look out for them on offer!
Cadbury's is probably one of the biggest names in the chocolate industry and are very popular thanks to their wide variety of smooth, good quality chocolate. I tend to prefer a smooth, melting chocolate rather than something crunchy but I make an exception for the Cadbury Crunchie.
The crunchie is honeycomb covered in a layer of milk chocolate. It comes in a gold foil packet with Crunchie written on in big red letters so they're easy to spot in the shop. The bar itself just looks like a solid chocolate bar, and it's only when you bite it do you get the mixture of texture and flavour from the honeycomb and chocolate.
I think what makes this a lovely chocolate bar is the contrast in texture from the smooth and creamy chocolate to the crunchy and sweet honeycomb inside. It's an unusual texture from a chocolate bar and it is really nice. The honeycomb looks very nice inside, like golden bubbles with a fairly thick layer of chocolate covering.
You can get these in regular sized bars for about 65p in most shops or multipacks of 5 for about £1.50. They're readily available, for sale at most supermakets and small shops as they're quite popular. A 40g bar of Crunchie contains 185 calories which isn't bad at all, especially compared to rival chocolates like the mars bar.
When eating these, I also like to dip them in a cup of tea. They make your tea taste awful but the melted chocolate on the crunchy honeycomb is a mouth watering combination!
I'd definitely recommend this as a different chocolate bar. They're really nice, have an unusual taste and are cheap to buy.
I am quite a fan of Cadbury's chocolate as I love the smooth, creamy taste and I also enjoy the many different chocolate bars that they produce. One bar that I purchased recently was a Cadbury's crunchie which is a bar of honeycomb covered in Cadbury's milk chocolate.
My last purchase of crunchie bars was from Iceland where I managed to pick up a pack containing four crunchies for just £1.00 I thought this was great value at only £0.25 per bar as they can sell for around 60p each if purchased individually in some stores.
The crunchie bar comes wrapped in a foil packet which is gold in colour to represent the honeycomb inside. It has the Cadbury's logo on the front as well as the name 'crunchie' in large red writing across the bar. It also has the treatwise information bubble on the front stating that the bar contains 185 calories. On the back of the bar you can find all the necessary information that you need to know about the bar on including full nutritional information, ingredients listings, storage instructions and allergy advice. There is also the crunchie slogan printed on the side of the packet which I am sure most people will recognise, 'get that Friday feeling with crunchie.'
It is easy to open the bar by simply tearing the jiggered edge at the end of the foil packet. Inside you will find the bar which actually looks like a solid bar of milk chocolate with the honeycomb being neatly hidden in the smooth milk chocolate.
The crunchie is very firm and when you bite into it you get a lovely 'crunch' from the honeycomb breaking inside. When you take your first bite it reveals the golden, bubbly honeycomb which smells of gorgeous caramelised sweetness. I love the taste of honeycomb anyway but when it is covered in the delicious creamy Cadburys dairy milk it gives a wonderful combination of flavours and textures. The light crunchy honeycomb melts in your mouth and is complimented by the smooth chocolate. The bar also keeps its shape and it does not crumble into pieces so it is not a messy chocolate bar to eat as I expected it to be the first time I ate one. I think some people might find crunchies a little too sweet but I think the chocolate helps to take the edge of the sweetness and for me it is just perfect and I would certainly recommend them to anyone.
Also for anyone who enjoys cooking Nigella Lawson has a fantastic recipe for 'sweet and salty crunchy nut bars' which contain smashed up crunchie bars which are truly scrummy.
The Crunchie bar was originally launched in 1929. Cadbury's Crunchie. Milk chocolate with golden honeycomb centre.
