I got this Dairy Milk Crunchie in Londis last night, it was reduced to 50p for some reason but it was well in date and the packaging was all ok and everything so I snapped it up because it was the big bar that usually costs well over £1.00!
I like the taste of Crunchie bars but the honeycomb centre is too thick and hard and it makes me feel sick. This is different because it's a solid slab of Dairy Milk with little pieces of Crunchie going all the way through it.
There was about 15 thick squares of chocolate in this bar and it was soooooo good I've just eaten the lot all to myself..... and I ate it snidey in the kitchen so I wouldn't have to share.
Being Dairy Milk the chocolate is mega sweet and creamy, it's got a delish sugary flavour that is the same as all the other Dairy Milk bars but this one has also got a bit of extra sweetness that comes from the Crunchie pieces.
The Crunchie is hard little pieces and the taste and texture is wicked. I love the flavour of this chocolate bar because you get the same taste of sweet Crunchie but without it being madly sickly like the normal Crunchie bars are. It's the texture that makes this such a yummy bar for me though because the chocolate is soft and starts melting as soon as you put it in your mouth but the honeycomb pieces stay wickedly crunchy. I like sucking the chocolate until it all melts and then when you've just got a bit of chocolate left in your mouth crunch down on all the Crunchie bits. Yummy!
I'll deffo buy this chocolate bar again because you've got the wicked Crunchie flavour but the main taste is the delish Dairy Milk chocolate. Even though this is still mega sweet at least the fact that there's more chocolate than honeycomb makes it taste a lot more balanced and better than the normal Crunchies.
In my opinion Cadbury is the best chocolate maker over every other brand with the most creamy and delicious chocolate. I love their Dairy Milk range but my favourite has to be the Dairy Milk Crunchie.
It's just like the normal Cadbury Dairy Milk bar but this one has crunchie bits inside. It's very similar to the Crunchie chocolate bar but rather than a block of honeycomb it has lots of broken up bits of honeycomb inside. The chocolate comes in a big bar where you can break the small individual squares off so it's great for sharing or just for a long-lasting bar all for yourself (my preferred option!).
I think you can only buy these in the big 230g bars so they're quite pricey at around £1.50 for a big bar. But for an occasional treat or even as part of a gift these are great.
The crunchie one is definitely my favourite out of all the Dairy Milk bars because the chocolate is creamy, milky and soft but the honeycomb is crunchy and sweet and the mixture makes this chocolate bar simply delicious! Eaten with a glass of cold milk and it is just perfect.
Cadbury Dairy Milk with chrunchie pieces is a good choice for those people who like the taste of a chrunchie bar, yet at the same time maybe find it a bit too sweet.
This bar is almost a reverse chrunchie - rather than the honeycomb being dominant with only a thin layer of chocolate like a Cadbury's Crunchie is, here the milk chocolate dominates with little honeycomb pieces scattered throughout the bar meaning the honeycomb taste does not get overwhelming as I sometimes feel it has too much of a strong taste.
The chocolate is typical dairy milk - milky, creamy taste not massively strong but still very chocolaty and the honeycomb pieces provide a much sweeter contrast to this.
If you like Chrunchie bars then you should like this or if you like the taste of a Chrunchie but find it just too sweet then this would be almost perfect for you.
I have only seen this as a large 230g bar and not as the small 49g bar, at 230g it will cost just over £1 and is available to buy in most supermarkets. It works out at better value for money in the long run anyhow.
The nutritional info. is per 100g
Advertised as Milk chocolate with honeycombed granules I had to give it a try. I love dairy milk and adore crunchie so this just had to be a winner. I wasn't disappointed.
The 230g bar only cost be £1 as it was on special offer at the COOP.
Unlike some of the other chocolate, which has fruit or nuts added the honeycombed bits were through all the pieces of chocolate, of course I checked them all!!
The wrapper is eye catching, the top part being the standard dairy milk purple, and the bottom being the crunchie gold.
The chocolate is exactly what you'd expect from Cadbury. They claim that there is the equivalent of three quarters of a pint of fresh liquid milk in every half pound of milk chocolate. A lovely milky chocolaty taste with the crunch of honeycomb. The honeycomb isn't too hard and is broken into lots of little pieces.
Each chunk contains 30kcal, 3.4g sugar, 1.4g fat, 0.9g saturates, 0.03g salt.
This bar is suitable for vegetarians but may contain nuts, wheat & soya.
I'll definitely be buying this one again.
Normal prices is around £1.55 but look out for special offers.
Crunchie has been a particular favourite of mine for a very long time and I was delighted a few years back when I saw this in my local supermarket. Cadburys have taken the standard Dairy Milk bar and added 'crunchie bits' which I can only describe as nuggets of honeycomb randomly throughout the bar.
The chocolate tastes divine, as I have always found with Dairy Milk. One good thing about having crunchie bits in the chocolate is that personally I find the chocolate much easier to consume. To me, it doesn't seem half as sickly as the standard Dairy Milk bar does on its own. The chocolate is creamy and thick and is obviously of the same high standard as Cadburys always is. The honeycomb I believe to taste slightly different than the honeycomb that you find in normal Crunchie bars. Whereas standard crunchie bars have light, airy and fluffy honeycomb inside, these bars have much harder and thicker honeycomb inside. I imagine this is due to the fact that the bar would not hold up if they used the same textured honeycomb as they usually do. Nevertheless, the honeycomb is extremely tasty and is dotted throughout the bar very generously and all chunks of chocolate have a good few pieces of honeycomb in.
This chocolate bar is by far my personal favourite in the cadburys range. This is because whilst the chocolate is both creamy and thick, the crunchie bits complement the flavour very well and make the chocolate a lovely treat. A 230g bar is available from most good stores, usually retailing at around £1.56, it is currently on offer in tescos at the bargain price of just 99p until 3rd August.
Despite looking on various websites I cannot find detailed product information for this bar.
My other half and myself have just been shopping to Tesco and picked up two bars of Cadbury Dairy Milk with Crunchie bits as they were on special offer. We both love Crunchie bars so thought we would try it. The offer was 2 for £2.50 on the 230g bars. Tesco is a mere 8 minute drive away from us and by the time we were on the drive way at home one entire bar was gone. Completely finished. And now I feel sick. But good sick.
This chocolate is so good. Cadburys describe it as Milk Chocolate with Honeycomb Granules. The Crunchie bits are far from granules, they a re great big whacking chunks of honeycomb. I sucked all the dairy milk chocolate off the honeycomb (which was pleasurable enough in itself) and was left with the meteoric chunks of honeycomb, which reminded me somewhat of popping candy. I prefer this bar to the Crunchie bars.
As 500 kcal per 100g this is laden with naughty things! And that is why I will TRY not to put this in the trolley again. I just ate half a pack in less than 10 minutes.
And, oh no.... we have another bar!!
review also on ciao - theshinyone - July 2009
Tesco Dairy Milk Crunchie comes packaged in the familiar purple Cadbury wrapping with a good part and a picture of a square of Dairy milk being mixed with 1 1/2 glass of milk (per pound of chocolate) and then being infused with Crunchie pieces.
There are 40 squares of chocolate per 230g bar and each square contains 30 calories and 1.4g of fat but I don't care if this is bad for me as I just adore the delicious milky Dairy Milk chocolate and the plentiful, large, chunks of crunchie that have been added. Each square is adorned with the Cadbury's logo and when I bite in to a piece I can see the honeycomb within. The chocolate & the honeycomb blend so well together and give the square a fantastic crunch to it that I just can't resist and it's for this reason that I have to limit myself to just buying a bar occasionally as I could happily munch through the entire bar in the course of a day as it's just so moreish and delicious and it really speaks out to my tastebuds.
These bars are currently available for £1.25 from Asda or 2 for £2.50 from Tesco (normal Tesco price 1.59) and these are fantastic value for money as I see them as an occasional treat and it's something that I really look forward to eating as soon as I see it on the supermarket shelf.
This chocolate is best when enjoyed chilled from the refridgerator and this is how I tend to eat mine (unless I'm in a rush to rip it open and start it straight outside the shop!) and it's a running joke between Tom & I that I'll always say we're going to share the bar (as we do most things) and then I'll eat my share first and then slowly but surely ebb away at his squares until there is just a few left and I'm always heard to proclaim 'I'll buy you another one I promise' and then we start the cycle all over again!
I am rating this chocolate 5/5 as it's absolutely delicious and although it's a little high in fat I just don't care because it tastes so yummy. I would definitely recommend it and suggest you get yourself down to the supermarket today and pick some up!
~*~ Introduction ~*~
Well its midnight and I am writing about food yet again, I am getting hungry at the weirdest hours of the day.. Maybe I should try sleeping more and thinking about my belly less.... Hmmmm nah that sounds like a bad idea.. Where would there be fun in sleeping when I could munch away on some of my favourite treats and put on a few pounds while I am at it!
The reason I have this lovely food is because I bought it at the same time as I got my fruit and nut chocolate and yum, I am now eating this one...
I don't think I need to explain Cadburys to anyone I think they are just about famous enough...
~*~ Packaging ~*~
Well as always with it being a Cadburys product we have the trademark purple wrapper, with the classic 'Cadbury' in white writing, except unlike my last review this bar has the pretty golden bottom associated with the delight that is crunchie! This has the crunchie logo that you would see on a standard bar with the added word 'bits' you will see why when I taste it!..
~*~ Look, Smell and Taste ~*~
Well as always a bar of chocolate looks like a bar of chocolate, given that this is the 230g bar, it is much larger than the standard bar of dairy milk - or any Cadburys with chunks.. From the surface it looks like a plain dairy milk it is not until you snap off a piece that you see the bits of golden honeycomb in amongst the folds of chocolate..
Smell is a very chocolatey aroma as usual you cannot tell what is inside this bar because the honeycomb smell doesn't permeate through the outer coating of chocolate.. Shame really as I would love to be able to smell the filling just at least then I would know what I was eating!
The taste well, as I sit here with a chunk of chocolate in my mouth I'm thinking the word yum, because since this bar has been in the fridge it is hard chocolate that just begins to melt as soon as you place it on your tongue.. The first bite you tend to sink your teeth into a chunk of honeycomb, and the taste sensation begins, the mixture of the creamy melting chocolate and the crunchy 'bits' of crunchie in the bar mix perfectly to create what is almost or is probably one of the best in the Cadburys range..!

~*~ Overall ~*~
As I sit here thinking about how many chunks of this I have eaten today I feel a bit ashamed of all the calories I have piled on because I have eaten over half the bar - probably over my GDA just in the chocolate!.. Anyway as a chocolate this is pretty special because it mixes the element of soft and crunchy textures, all with a lovely sweet kick and a chocolatey after taste.. However I do not advise you eat masses of this chocolate as it is high in sugar - especially for children.. Also the price is a little steep too my bars were 2 for £2.50, but a bar of this usually retails for around £1.50, which is good enough for a treat but not something I'd want to buy everyday..
Yum, whenever you mix homeycomb and chocolate you are guaranteed a great taste combination and the new Dairy Milk Crunchie from Cadburys is no different. I am a big chocolate fan as you can probably tell from some of my reviews and I actually first tried this combination over Christmas in a mini size that was part of a selection box so I had to try a full size one as I loved the mini version so much. A Cadburys Crunchie is also one of my favourite chocolate bars so to pick the two of them together is even better.!
A crunchie is a honeycomb bar with a layer of chocolate all around it. If you are not familiar with honeycomb the scientific definition is a mass of hexagonal wax cells built by honey bees in their nests to contain their larvae and stores of honey and pollen. The honeycomb as a food has quite a sweet taste (as you would expect from something made by bees such as honey the liquid) and an almost kind of sickly sugary taste.
An original crunchie bar was first produced in 1929 with Cadburys dairy milk coming out in 1905 but the two of them together is a fairly new product. The chocolate bar consists of squares of gorgeous Cadburys chocolate that break apart from each other. Inside the squares are chunks or nuggets, which is probably a better way of putting it, of lovely honeycomb pieces. The honeycomb is spaced out fairly well in each piece of chocolate and there are quite a lot of the nuggets so you are guaranteed a lovely crunch with every square.
The chocolate squares are really thick so it is really nice to bite into them. The bar itself contains 6 chunks of chocolate but in some varieties you can get eight chunks, I'm not sure about this one though.
This bar is definitely a nice addition to the range though and a great tasting, good quality bar in my opinion.
The wrapping of this bar is quite distinctive and eye-catching. This one has the familiar purple colour but unlike the others, not all the way through. On the bottom part of the wrapper is the lovely golden yellow colour that you associate with a crunchie bar. There is also a picture of one of the squares of chocolate with lots of little golden honeycomb nuggets popping out of the chocolate.
Cadbury has been making chocolate since 1824, when John Cadbury opened his first shop which has now grown to be one of the biggest sellers of chocolate in the world.
The great thing about Cadburys is that they use a glass and a half of fresh milk in every half pound of milk chocolate and proper cocoa beans so the chocolate itself is amazing and creamy. It definitely has a very rich taste to it and in my opinion is one of the best chocolates out there.
The nice thing about these chocolate bars is that they only have 185 calories each so if you are looking for a chocolate fix this is not as bad as some of them out there, yummy!
Wow! Tried this for the first time yesterday and was so impressed I actually made a note to myself to come on here and review it (Is that sad?!)
Anyway, it is delicious! Cadbury's chocolate is rarely beaten. It is creamy and smooth and you can eat so much of it before you feel sick. Not the signs of an excellent quality chocolate but sometimes it is all you want!! With this Cadbury Dairy Milk Crunchie, you get all the wholesome goodness and deliciousness of cadburys but with a twist. Throughout the bar there are small crunchie bits - literally bits of crunchie candy bars. This is great if you need a pure chocolate fix but you are a crunchy fan. I do love crunchie bars but when I want a chocolate hit, I find they just aren't quite right. This dairy milk crunchie bar solves the problem. You get your dose of chocolate but at the same time, you get tasty little bursts of crackling crunchie slam-dunking on your taste buds!
Give it a try!
