      Disadvantages

      The toffee definitely gets my best vote in terms of yumminess!

      I only came across this a few months ago and didn't realise it wasn't as new as I had thought, it was just the packaging I believe that had changed. I'm very glad to have tried it though, because I'm in love with the toffee version!

      The packaging has changed since this was added to DooYoo, in my opinion for the better. It now comes in a cardboard sleeve, with each flavour in the range keeping to a similar layout scheme. The main colour is purple with just the top and bottom bits being differently coloured, for instance, with the toffee version being a golden orange. The logo and brand name is clear to see and it stands out in the crowd of competitors. Inside the cardboard you get the slab of chocolate wrapped in gold foil, and taken together, this presentation gives the chocolate a more special, high quality feel.

      Opening this up is easy and it also makes it easier to store by putting back what you don't want into the cardboard, which also keeps it a little fresher inside foil. When you first open it you can smell the aroma of the chocolate and in particular the toffee in that particular variety, which is very tempting when you're a toffee and choc fan!

      Like I said, this comes in the Toffee flavour, but there are alsoo yummy milk chocolate truffle and hazelnut varieties, all priced at around £1.39 (Tesco). Toffee is my favourite one as it seems to have more flavour yet still melts in your mouth. I've noticed more recently that these are often on offer, so I tend to get a few in when they are to keep in the cupboard because my boyfriend and I get through these very quickly on our film nights!

      This particular bit of the review is mainly for the toffee Bliss, which is described as 'milk chocolate with a toffee flavour truffle filling'. Biting into it you notice just how soft it is and it practically melts in your mouth with a silky loveliness. The bar isn't that big when split between two, or more, people, but for one person you could just nibble at this on and off for a couple of days to get a small taste of this as a delicious treat. The individual squares can be broken off, each of which is a good size.

      Aside from the texture being very creamy and smooth, the chocolate itself is the same and has the classic, good quality appeal of Cadbury's. Admittedly I tend to find Cadbury's more boring and a bit dryer than Galaxy, but the fact that this is a truffle makes it softer and more flavoursome.

      The Bliss Toffee slab weighs in at 110g and per portion, guided at 2 pieces, gives you 125 calories and 8g of fat. Considering I share this in half with my boyfriend, that's quite a lot in terms of fat/cals, but it's worth it. Plus, eating too much more than half the bar is quite sickly anyway, so just the couple of pieces may suffice to give you that chocolate hit.

      This is suitable for vegetarians, but it does contain Milk, Soya\Soybeans, with the possibility of containing nut traces. Aside from that, you get the high quality appeal of Cadbury's and Bliss is, partially due to the packaging and partly because of the tempting flavour, which makes it feel that bit more special than your average choc block.

      Overall I would definitely recommend giving this a try, especially if you can find it on special offer. Yum!

        Disadvantages

        A lovely festive treat.

        I recently bought the limited edition of this chocolate bar in Boots. It was about £1.32 reduced to a £1 so I thought I'd try one. I am a big fan of chocolate and Cadbury's is one of my favourite brands. Cadbury is probably one of the most well known chocolate brands and has been around for years.

        The packaging on this chocolate was one of the first things that attracted me to it. It comes in a fancy cardboard box decorated with lilac and gold swirls at the top and bottom. There's a picture of the chocolate on the front that just looks lovely with some grated chocolate next to it which pretty much sold it to me. The cadbury dairly milk logo is big on the front so it's easy to recognise as a cadbury brand.

        When you open the box, the chocolate is wrapped in gold foil and sealed for freshness. My first reaction to the gold foil was "I've won the golden ticket!" as this chocolate does acutally remind me of the chocolate in the willy wonka film. The chocolate itself if divided into big squares, I think there was 10 of them though I'm not sure as I've eaten it now.

        The chocolate is lovely. It's like normal cadbury chocolate with chocolate truffle inside. The soft and hard texture mixed together is really nice and mouth watering. It is very sweet inside so had quite a rich taste. It was lovely. I did share the chocolate with my grandson who loved it too, despite being tempted to hide and eat it to myself. It is good to share as the squares are easy to break off.

        Per 100g the chocolate contains 565 calories which is quite a lot, but for a guilty treat, it's worth it. There is 37.33g of fat, which again is high, so I try not to read this information until I've eat it.

        The date on the bar is for 2012, so these chocolates make an ideal stocking filler for christmas as they are delicious. I've already bought another couple to put away for the grandchildren.

        I can't say a bad thing about this chocolate. It's mouthwateringly delicious and isn't ridiculously expensive so I can't recommend it more for anyone with a sweet tooth.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Too sweet for me but a good quality chocolate.

          I love chocolate and vanilla so when I saw a new chocolate bar that promises to combine both I couldn't resist trying it. The Bliss bar from Cadbury Dairy Milk is labelled as new in my local newsagents although my friends tell me it's been around a while.. Not sure how I missed it!

          When I first brought it it cost 59p but it's available in selected Superdrug stores for just 20p at the moment. On the other hand I have seen it on sale for as much as 89p in a local corner shop. I think the latter price is rather expensive for a bar of this size. [This bar has 6 squares. Oddly the packaging doesn't give an exact weight. It is a little smaller than a standard Mars bar for example and much less chunky.]

          The packet is an easy to open plastic wrapper in a smart looking purple and gold. There is a picture of a square of the chocolate on the front which certainly makes it look deep-filled and enticing. The back of the pack contains the usual nutrient information and contact details for Cadbury. The bar is described as "Cadbury Dairy Milk with a smooth vanilla centre."

          My first impression on opening the pack was how lovely and chocolatey the bar smelt. I couldn't wait to take a bite. The chocalate itself has the classic Dairy Milk taste too, smooth and milky with no hint of dark chocolate type bitterness.On breaking a square open, I was really impressed with the generous amount of filling. [It makes up 26% of the bar.] The square was full to bursting! The vanilla filling is soft and creamy, quite sticky too if you get it on your fingers. I couldn't smell the vanilla and sadly I couldn't taste it either. The filling most reminded me of the white and yellow parts of the Cadbury Cream eggs, with a similar sweetness. If you like the cream eggs I think you would really love this chocolate. Personally I found it a little too sugary in taste. I thought it was too sickly for me to want to finish it all at once. I also prefer bars with a crunchy rather than soft texture and this hasn't done anything to change my mind. However, it is nice to see a choc bar that is offering something a bit different to the usual nut/fruit/biscuit combinations.

          The Bliss bars are suitable for vegetarians but not vegans as they contain milk. The smaller size of the bar made me think I was choosing a relatively healthy snack but a quick look at the nutrient information shows that one bar contains an incredible 41.5% of your guideline daily amount of saturated fat and 23.7% of your sugars. Calorie wise, it provides 11% of your GDA. So I would not recommend this as a regular snack!

          I won't buy it again myself as I found it too sweet but if you like soft centred or cream- egg like chocolate treats, it is good value bar that's worth trying.[Providing you don't pay 89p for it that is!] I would recommend eating this with a tissue to hand because as I mentioned above it has the potential to be quite sticky to eat. I'd also be careful not to let it slip to the bottom of a shopping bag or you could have a very messy surprise!
          Thanks for reading.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Superb quality and interesting in flavours

            Not very often do I crave chocolate but when I do I really do so the other day when I spotted this bar of chocolate on offer in my local Tesco Express priced at a mere 69p a bar I was unable to resist it and containing toffee truffle I just knew I was going to enjoy it.

            The Packaging:

            The bar of chocolate comes in cardboard reseable covering with the chocolate wrapped in a gold colored foil wrapper. On the front of the cardboard which is purple and orange and with a piece of chocolate shown we are told Cadbury Dairy Milk, Bliss 'Scrumptious Toffee Flavour Truffle' and that it contains 125 calories per two chunks of it. On the back of the wrapper other information given includes ingredients and allergy advice being give, there is a full nutritional chart stated as well as an at a glance nutritional chart, the weight of the bar is given which in this case is 110g and contact details for Cadbury's are given. Nice enough and informative packaging this is and I do like the fact it comes in a box effect which is easy to reseal if you want too!

            The Chocolate Itself:

            There are about 8 large chunks of connected chocolate which are easy to break apart and on each piece the word Cadbury adorns it. This is smooth and sweet, great quality chocolate with a really creamy taste and it is the usual good quality that we expect from Cadburys.

            One side of the chocolate is flat the top part is slightly rounded and looks plump and is filled with a moist but not wet toffee flavoured truffle which is full of flavour, tastes fluffy and is sweet and really does taste of toffee.

            This is a smooth and delicious chocolate which is creamy, not too heavy and has a wonderful but still subtle taste of toffee to it. Its a smooth chocolate that melts wonderfully in the mouth and even at its usual price of about £1.50 a bar this is worth that as it really is just superb quality!

            Nutritional Information Per 2 Chunks:

            Calories: 125
            Sugars: 11.2g
            Fat: 7.8g
            Saturates: 4.5g
            Salt: 0.05g

            Available in all good supermarkets etc.

              Disadvantages

              Try One

              **Introduction**

              You may have seen the adverts for this bar a few months ago, It was released last October as part of a £2m ad campaign and like Most chocolate fans When a new Chocolate bar comes out I always like to try it and when I heard that Dairy Milk had released a bar with a Vanilla centre I was pleasantly intrigued. Dairy Milk call this new bar Bliss And describe it as Milk Chocolate with a Vanilla centre. Pretty self explanatory really. A few months ago I spotted them in Tesco on a 3 for £1.20 deal and thought I'd try one and I have tried it a few times now and here's my review of Dairy Milk Bliss.

              **Bliss**

              As you can see from the picture, Bliss is pretty much like other Dairy Milk bars in that it's made up of chunks but the differences are the shape compared to a standard Dairy Milk bar and that Bliss is filled with a delicious Vanilla cream. Once you bite into the chocolate you get the lovely combination of the very popular Dairy Milk chocolate and the creamy Vanilla centre. I really like the way these two flavours blend together. I really like the taste of this and feel that it's much better than the normal Dairy Milk which is probably my least favourite Dairy Milk chocolate bar as I really like the Caramel one too but that's for another review. Another thing IU liked about this bar is that a vanilla filling is not all that common with Chocolate bars so I see this as a plus point.

              **Nutritional Info**

              Nutrition Information (per pack)

              Energy (KJ) 920
              Energy (KCal) 220
              Protein 2.6g
              Carbohydrate 21.4g
              (of which Sugar) 21.3g
              Total Fat 13.9g
              (of which Saturated Fat) 8.3g
              Fibre 0.2g
              Sodium* Trace

              **Overall**

              This Chocolate Bar has become one of my favourites and as it was on offer in my local Tesco I bought another couple tonight. This is probably my favourite Cadbury's bar just beating out Caramel. If you have not tried this bar yet and you like Chocolate then I would recommend giving it a try. If you don't see it on an offer then it will probably be around 50p to 60p which is around what you would expect to pay for this type of chocolate bar and one of this size too. So in Summary this is an excellent Chocolate bar that if eaten in moderation is a very nice treat. Excellent taste and Dairy Milk Bliss is certainly a Chocolate Bar that I will continue to buy.

                Disadvantages

                Lovely treat

                I had seen these in the shop many times but hadn't bought one. However, when I spotted them in Tesco on Saturday on a 3 for £1.20 deal I thought this was a good price so I decided to pick up a few.

                Cadbury describe these bars as "Cadbury Dairy Milk milk chocolate with a smooth vanilla centre". The packaging is exactly as is shown above and I think it looks quite sophisticated for a chocolate bar. If bought when not on a deal you can expect to pay around 55p for a bar.

                The bar is a decent size, it is around 4 inches long and 2 inches wide. The bar is divided up into 6 chunks making it easy to share or to save some for later. Each chunk has Cadbury on it and it does look very appetising.

                As soon as you open the packet you are hit with the distinct cadbury chocolate smell which is very inviting. There is a very subtle hint of vanilla too.

                Biting into a chunk, the Dairy Milk chocolate is quite thick. It is creamy and smooth and is of the usual high cadbury standard. The vanilla filling is soft and has a sort of fluffy texture. It is white in colour and is very smooth. It has a nice vanilla flavour and when it is combined with the chocolate you get a smooth and very creamy taste. The chocolate bar is luxurious and I really enjoyed it.

                Each bar contains
                220 calories
                21.3g sugars
                13.9g fat
                8.3g saturates
                0.1g salt

                Now this is very high in calories, sugar, fat and saturates so I would only have these as a treat as otherwise it is just too high.

                I really enjoyed this chocolate bar but after seeing the calorie content etc then I will definitely only enjoy them as a treat.

                  Disadvantages

                  Deliciously moorish chocolate bar, although the GDA amount is rather high!

                  **This review is also listed on Ciao, under my username "MonsoonBaby88"**

                  Like many women, I am a self-confessed chocoholic, but I try to limit how much chocolate I eat on a daily basis. Being a regular exerciser, and keen on eating healthily for the most part, I try to avoid gorging on chocolate, although I do have my moments (Christmas and Easter in particular!). I allow myself a small chocolate treat every day if I feel the need to get some chocolate into my system, and so I decided to try out Dairy Milk's Bliss chocolate bar.

                  This bar caught my attention when I was standing in line at my local newsagents, buying the usual milk and newspapers. The packet contains the trademark purple Dairy Milk design, but is adorned either end of it by swirly gold and cream colours. A square of the chocolate is displayed on the front with a section of it cut out, so you can clearly see the inside of it. As expected on any chocolate, the ingredients, how much of your guideline daily amount is included when eaten, the calorie content, best before date and more are included on the back of the packaging. The bar looked a reasonable size to treat myself to, so I decided to pick up a bar of it.

                  When I opened the packaging, I noticed that there was six squares of chocolate contained inside. For those who are familiar with Dairy Milks before, the squares are roughly the same size as the squares contained in an original Dairy Milk, but they do appear to be considerably chunkier in the Bliss format. Upon my first bite I noticed how smooth the texture of the chocolate was. It was also incredibly milky, with a rich taste of vanilla in it's centre. On first impressions I thought that the vanilla centre may possibly be a little too rich for my pallet, but the richness is just about right here. It also has a creamy taste to it, so those with lactose and milk intolerances should steer clear of this bar, even if you are prone to having a crafty nibble now and again of a chocolate bar! Buying a Dairy Milk Bliss will set you back around 59p, which is a normal price for a chocolate of this size, so I have no complaints with that. However like any products, prices vary depending on where you picked it up from.

                  I thought the taste was lovely, and found that it lasted in my mouth for a considerable amount of time after consuming. The bar is also rather large, and I found it was bigger than a lot of chocolate bars I am used to buying, but this did not make it last for a longer amount of time like I expected it would upon buying. I found the taste so moorish that I greedily ate this chocolate bar up very quickly, leaving me grasping empty packaging! I do not regret saying that I ate this rather quick, it just proves how delicious the chocolate was.

                  The only criticisms I have of the Dairy Milk Bliss is the calorie content. I am aware that a lot of chocolate bar's calorie content is rather high, but I felt that 220 calories per bar was a bit high for something which I would easily eat more than one bar of in a day if I could. So on knowing the calorie content, I have decided that this bar should be viewed as a treat rather than an essential. The chocolate has a lovely addictive taste, so I would warn people who are concious of their weight to take it slow with these! It also contains 21.3g of sugar, 13.9g of fat, 8.3g of saturates and 0.10g of salt, all of which, especially the sugar, are of high amounts. The other point I want to address is that this chocolate may not be for everyone. I had already stated that the bar has a rich taste about it, which for me wasn't too rich that I would find it sickening, but for others they may find it a bit too much. I would suggest giving it a go and finding out how much your taste buds enjoy the sweetness.

                  I will definitely be buying one a Dairy Milk Bliss again. Since originally tried it, I have had three more, and I highly enjoyed it every time. So next time I head off to my newsagents I think I may allow myself to indulge in the delicious vanilla taste and smooth and creamy textures of a Dairy Milk Bliss.

                    Nice but costly bar that the miss sad seems too like too much

                    Taking the advice of a girl is always a problematic thing, if it's wrong and you shout at her she thinks you hate her, if she's right she seems to think it means she's always right. With this in mind I was tempted to ignore my girlfriends recommendation for Cadbury's new chocolate bar "Bliss", something she said was like sex in her mouth and one of the nicest bars of chocolate out there. As a bit of a chocolate connoisseur I felt I needed to try it and find out if this was one of the times when I should have ignored her.

                    The bliss comes in a wrapper that has gold edges to it with the iconic Cadbury's purple taking the centre of what's a wide but short wrapper. In fact in total its about 3 inches long from end to end and about half that across. The wrapper describes the product as being milk chocolate with a smooth vanilla centre, the vanilla was the part the aforementioned better half said was so amazing. Though as not a big vanilla fan I was tempted to use that as an excuse not trying it, however having seen one in B&M it was hard to resist picking it up.

                    Inside the wrapper the bar, made of plain milk chocolate if broken into 6 different pieces each with "Cadbury" etched on to it, inside each of the 6 pieces is solid vanilla, filling a hollow in the chocolate pieces. Visually the cross section of a piece is very similar to that of a mint Aero with the vanilla taking the place of the light green chocolate and texture wise they are also very similar, though taste wise they are very different. Not only is this chocolate Cadbury's a much superior chocolate to the Nestle chocolate used in Aero's but the taste of the vanilla is rather unique to chocolate bars. The rich and clear taste actually suit's the chocolate well and although it's not a gorgeous must have flavour is an easy to like one that has it's own charm. Sweet and complimentary to the chocolate the vanilla manages to work really well.

                    At 49p from B&M the bar is pricey, of course with Vanilla being used it was never going to be cheap, but when the price is considered the bar isn't good value for money despite the fact it is nice. When compared to some other products, this is made to look like a costly product that's worth trying once or twice but not afterwards, the gimmick of vanilla and chocolate will soon wear off.

                    A chocolate travesty that should never have been made!

                    I'm sat here quietly, reading and rating as usual when I hear my daughter come through the front door.
                    No 'Hi mum, how are you' good day at work' 'can I do anything for you, actually if she said that last one I'd probably just faint!
                    I got a 'Ere, K bought this for me, it's disgusting, you can have it' and promptly chucked a slightly eaten bar of chocolate on my desk. How kind of her I thought, remembering that this was a child who bought me a box of Maltesers as a gift on Saturday and promptly left me three!

                    This bar of chocolate however, is a Cadburys Dairy Milk Bliss, the new chocolate bar on the market. It is also one of the newest bars since the highly publicised and controversial takeover by Kraft, so would this product change the taste of Dairy Milk. Kraft is, of course, American, and American Chocolate, with the exception of Oreos is vile!

                    The wrapper declares itself to be 'Cadburys Dairy Milk chocolate with a smooth vanilla centre', well I actually thought that sounded quite nice!

                    You get 8 chunks in the packet, reasonable for approx 80p? Well, I don't think so, not when you can get the huge bars for around a £1 on offer, as well as the various bags of goodies. I would probably only buy it to try it if there was nothing else I fancied or was available or preferably if I had been given it free.
                    It looks like a Cadburys chunky bar, there's nothing more to say really, not exciting, or 'mmm, I must eat that as soon as possible' 'ooh that looks good', you know the kind of thing!

                    The chunks are quite large, certainly too large to fit in the mouth at one go, well, my mouth anyway. So in half its chomped to get a look at the 'smooth vanilla centre' instead. I don't know what I was expecting to be honest, the picture on the wrapper makes it look like quite a dense mousse and that's exactly what it is, it's actually quite a good amount of centre. This is unfortunately is to the detriment of the chocolate which is quite thin, so doesn't have that chunky melt in your mouth factor I like from Cadburys.
                    The overwhelming taste is of the vanilla, the texture of the centre is good and thick, almost chewy. But the taste of the vanilla is very strong, seems to get stronger in fact and by this point its actually becoming quite unpleasant! The taste seems to be very reluctant to leave the mouth, in fact even one chunk will leave the taste in your mouth for over 5 minutes. That is, of course, the aftertaste, and it is absolutely vile. I do not exaggerate when I say it tastes like sick, you know when you get that sicky bit in your mouth after burping? It tastes like that. And unfortunately you've already eaten it and you can taste it all the way down to your stomach where it sits like a leaden lump.

                    The problem as I seem to see it, is that they have made the bar with far too much centre and not enough chocolate. There is no taste of chocolate at all. Perhaps a thicker chocolate would offset the overwhelming taste of the vanilla.
                    It should actually be described as 'a smooth vanilla centre covered with a thin layer of Cadburys Dairy Milk chocolate, as that is exactly what it is.

                    If I could give minus stars I would, this product is an absolutely travesty of the Cadburys name. If this what the Americans are going to start influencing Cadburys to turn out then I'm going on the picket line with the staff at Keynsham!

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      A yummy chocolate bar from Cadbury's

                      Well what can I say other than being in love all over again! I first came across this Bliss bar in Asda a few weeks back while shopping; I had not seen them before so I had to try it (For sake of reviewing really!)

                      Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss Bar:

                      'Cadbury Dairy Milk with a smooth vanilla centre'

                      This bar is truly bliss and the name fits to a T, I've worked really hard on my diet but in the past two weeks I've already consumed three of these gorgeous bars (Plus there's a fourth in the fridge for later tonight!). In one pack you get six delicious squares and they get tastier as you devour the whole pack!

                      The squares are like the Dairy Milk bars also produced by Cadbury's only a little shorter but chunkier as they have this luscious layer of soft vanilla cream a truly indulgent chocolate treat which I'm sure chocolate lovers of the world will enjoy. (I know I do! Maybe a little too much)

                      My First Time:

                      On first bite I was hooked you have a solid chocolate bottom with a smooth layer of vanilla on top; then it's all covered over in milk chocolate. When I first saw the bar my first impressions where that it maybe a little sickly with the vanilla but that was not the case at all.

                      The vanilla centre was rich, creamy yet light on the pallet at the same time giving you the pleasant hints of creamy vanilla then that is followed by a sweet milk chocolate taste. Needless to say the packet was gone in a matter of seconds, so far this year I think this is the best chocolate Cadbury's has done and I hope it will be around forever.

                      When opening the packaging which is done very easily just pulling on one of the covers, you do detect a very slight sweet chocolate scent. Once you have bitten into a square of this chocolate you can not really smell any vanilla but you sure can taste it once entering your mouth.

                      Another thing what came to mind when purchasing was that, if you have ever tried Cadbury's Turkish delight bars? you only get a tiny amount of Turkish delight with the Dairy Milk... so little infact I find them verities from Cadbury's rather dull and just tasting like Dairy Milk. However I was in for a surprise; the vanilla cream filling is double to what you would get in the others, making sure you really can taste it!

                      Packaging:

                      The packing for this is elegantly fitting; with the generic purple banding from the Dairy Milk then on the sides it has a creamy colour with a little golden pattern.

                      We also have what you would expect to see with the ingredients list, best before date, product information etc.

                      This product is suitable for vegetarians and can be recycled.

                      Allergy Advice:

                      Contains - Milk, Soya and may also contain Nuts and Cereals.

                      Nutritional Information:

                      Calories - 220
                      Sugars - 21.3g
                      Fat - 13.9g
                      Saturates - 8.3g
                      Salt - 0.10g

                      Price and Availability:

                      So far the only places I've seen this wonderful treat is in Asda or Tesco's however on my shopping trip today at Tesco's they were sold out.

                      Price range from 49p to 59p and I really do think there worth it for a scrumptious bar of chocolate.

                      Overall:

                      Personally I can not fault this chocolate bar, it tastes amazing, the price I find to be fair for the amount of chocolate you get and good quality too. I would recommend people that enjoy their sweet treats to give this a go, you will not be disappointed!

                      Five out of five stars from me!

                      Thanks for reading :o)

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Dairy Milk chocolate with a smooth, vanilla centre.

                        ***DAIRY MILK BLISS***
                        Dairy Milk Bliss is of course made by Cadbury. This bar hasn't been on sale for long and I first saw it down my local shop about 3 weeks ago and since then, I have seen advertisements in magazines and on bus stop posters. The bar is Dairy Milk filled with a smooth vanilla centre. This is a different shaped bar to a standard dairy milk bar and also looks and feels quite chunky in the packet. The bar comes in one size and I can't actually find on the packet how many grams you get in a standard sized bar. It is available to buy from some local shops and supermarkets such as Tesco & Sainsbury's. This bar is more expensive than a standard sized chocolate bar and it will set you back about 60p, which was from my local shop. Prices may vary in different stores/shops. You can buy this from Asda for 49p and from Tesco for 52p.

                        Each bar contains the following:

                        * Calories - 220 (11.0% RDA)
                        * Sugars - 21.3g (23.7% RDA)
                        * Fat - 13.9g (19.9% RDA)
                        * Saturates - 8.3g (41.5% RDA)
                        * Salt - 0.10g (1.7% RDA)

                        The bar contains Milk & Soya and may also contain nuts and cereals.

                        ***APPEARANCE/SMELL***
                        The bar comes in a smooth foil wrapper and the centre of the wrapper is the typical Cadbury's purple colour. Each end of the wrapper is a beige colour with a swirly design on and some gold swirls on. The word Bliss is in the middle of the bar printed and the words Dairy Milk are above it in bold lettering. There is a picture of one of the chocolate chunks which shows the vanilla centre. On the back of the wrapper you will find a list of ingredients, nutritional information and contact information. The bar is rectangle in shape and consists of 6 squares of chocolate each with Cadbury's engraved onto each chunk. The bar smell's very creamy and chocolatey and I can smell a slight hint of vanilla. The bar looks quite chunky and is much thicker than a standard sized Dairy Milk bar.

                        ***TASTE TEST***
                        The first chunk I bit into which revealed the smooth, vanilla centre. My teeth cracked the thin layer of chocolate on top of the chunk and then sunk into the vanilla centre which was soft and fluffy. As I bit into the chocolate chunk further when it was in my mouth I soon got the lovely taste of the smooth vanilla. The vanilla and chocolate tasted delicious together; how-ever there was more of a vanilla taste than chocolate. Both the vanilla and chocolate are so smooth and creamy and the combination of the chocolate and vanilla together make's this bar very sweet and quite sickly towards the end. I found it very sweet after eating just 2 chunks and there was still another 4 to go. I did eat these but afterwards I feel very thirsty and I had a very sweet vanilla after taste in mouth.

                        ***OVERALL OPINION***
                        I love anything that smell's or taste's of vanilla so I couldn't wait to try this chocolate bar. I was quite surprised at how much this cost in my local shop, how-ever other places do sell it slightly cheaper. I thought the flavour in this bar was very nice and you could definitely taste the vanilla centre which was very smooth and tasted delicious with the dairy milk chocolate. This bar did get very sweet especially for me, and I love chocolate and sweet things. I would recommend people to try this bar especially if you have a bit of a sweet tooth like me. The price doesn't put me off too much because I do love the taste of this bar and think it's just delicious. After eating one I didn't have any other sweet cravings for a few days. It does contain a lot of sugars and fat, how-ever as long as this isn't eaten every single day and is eaten as a treat I don't think it's too bad. As this has more fat and sugars then a standard sized chocolate bar, I'll only treat myself to this once every now and again.
