Disadvantages: Hugely over priced and under-sized
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.
