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.
Summary: Very nice chocolate.
