Cadbury have bought out a number of different varieties to their traditional Cadbury Milk chocolate bar and this mint version is one of these. Personally I prefer the crunchie and caramel versions as I do not think that mint and milk chocolate mix quite so well, for me mint goes much better with dark chocolate.
This is a standard six bar chocolate of milk chunks however laced through the chocolate are small mint nuggetts which give the chocolate some crunch when you bite into them and a strong minty flavour. They have been quite generous with the mint nuggetts and you certainly will not find yourself only biting into chocolate unless you take the smallest of nibbles.
They have kept with the traditional Dairy Milk lettering and blue wrapper however the lower segment has a splash of pale mint green to it to make it distinctive. A bar retails at about 55p.
I find this a little too sweet for my taste buds and can't help thinking that they would have been better off going with a dark chocolate version instead.
Of all the great flavour combinations in the world, fish and chips, salt and vinegar, toast and jam, another one can be added to the list, chocolate and mint, a perfect combination and what could be better than lovely Dairy Milk chocolate and mint!
Yum, whenever you mix mint and chocolate you are guaranteed a great taste combination and the new Dairy Milk Mint 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. I had never seen a full size one before so I was quite excited to find it and try it and make it part of my chocolate routine!
The bar itself contains 6 chunks of chocolate but in some varieties you can get eight chunks. Cadbury's dairy milk was first produced in 1905. The chocolate bar consists of squares of gorgeous Cadburys chocolate that break apart from each other. The chocolate squares are really thick so it is really nice to bite into them
Inside the squares are little flecks of mint sugar nuggets which actually to me look a bit like mint crystals. The mint portion is very crunchy and very cool and refreshing which is nice. The mint 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.
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 light bluey green colour that you associate with a mint colour.
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!
I really like mint chocolate so when I spotted this I had to get some. Its easy to spot the orginal Cadbury purple with a green part across the wrapper. It always makes me wonder why mint is always shown by a green colour green as usually mints are white. In this chocolate though the minty bits are actually green.
The chocolate itself is what you would expect from Cadburys a very chocolatey taste that is thick and creamy and melts in your mouth. It also smells lovely to. The mint bits add a nice minty tang to it but they are not too overpowering so you can still taste the chocolate. They are a bright green colour and are quite hard and sugary. I think the best way to descrbe them would be like little shavings of rock. The mint adds a fresh taste to the chocolate and the mix of the two flavours is great.
This chocolate is quite widely available but I have had trouble finding it in some smaller stores even when they stock the other Cadbury flavours like turkish delight and fruit and nut. I would stock up when I found it but I don't think it would last very long as I tend to just eat whatever chocolate I have in one go.
The nutrional information is on the back of the pack it is quite high in calories and fat, however it is chocolate and these calories do not count :)
This is a lovely twist to the original dairy milk and is definatley worth trying.
