      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A decent, if slightly inferior, alternative to Fry's Turkish Delight, but at a better price.

      This bar is Cadbury Dairy Milk but with a very sweet Turkish Delight fondant filling. As you would expect a lot of comparisons are drawn with Fry's Turkish Delight. In the Cadbury version I find that there is too much chocolate which just overpowers the filling somewhat. The Turkish Delight tastes wonderful, and is very sweet. I just wish there was a bit more of it! It's runny and gooey when compared to the jelly-like Fry's filling and the rose-tainted sweet flavours are still there. It's probably not quite as tasty as the Fry's version, but it's very nice nonetheless.

      As you would expect from a chocolate bar it's not all that good for you nutritionally. Each bar contains 180 calories, 22.9g of sugar and 8.2g of fat. So, if you are watching your figure then I should stay well clear of them. Even if you're not then it's better not to over-indulge.

      I would never pay the asking price of 55p in my local newsagents for a single bar. That's a blatant rip-off. I always buy them in multi-packs of seven for £1.65 at Home Bargains. This way they are less than half the individual price, and so much better value-for-money.

      The combination of Cadbury chocolate and Turkish Delight is great. I do prefer the Fry's filling, but because I can buy the Cadbury bars at a much cheaper price then I will always buy these instead.

        Disadvantages

        Not as good as fry's but a good back up.

        I love Dairy milk, so when Cadbury bought this out I had to try it.

        If you like fry's turkish delight, this is not as good. There is just too much chocolate and not enough Turkish delight.

        One bar of this is the same size as a normal bar of dairy milk and when you open it, it looks very similar, 6 small chunks of chocolate, except with this there is a tiny amount of turkish delight inside each of the 6 chunks. The turkish delight is pink in colour and actually doesn't taste as perfumed as other turkish delights, but it is still nice. It is also a lot firmer than other turkish delights.

        I think a bar of this costs about the same as a fry's turkish delight, but the fry's is smaller.

        If you buy this for the chocolate with a hint of turkish delight then you will be fine, but if you actually buy it to enjoy the filling then you will be sadly disappointed.

        Although there is a lack of filling with these chocolate bars, they still taste good, but if you are a turkish delight lover, then this is nowhere near as good as fry's.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not as good as the Fry`s version (also made by Cadbury)!

        I am rarely spurred to write a review on what I have read from others but with this review that was exactly the case. I have recently read a few reviews on the Cadbury dairy milk Turkish and have not believed what I was reading.

        I have read things like It is better than Fry`s Turkish delights because the chocolate on Fry`s is cheap or at least tastes cheap and I have read that Cadbury could be ripping of Fry`s by making this bar, al of which is very laughable as it is Cadbury themselves that produce the Fry`s bars.

        The Fry`s bar was originally produced way back in 1914 by J.S Fry and sons but then taken over by Cadbury, who now after more than 50 years seem to feel the need to offer something different.

        It is like everything with Cadbury right now they are making a Dairy milk everything, the old wildlife bars are now just small dairy milk`s and the once Cadbury`s caramel is now a dairy milk with caramel, and now we have the dairy milk Turkish, I just hope they don't take away the Fry`s version because it is still the best.

        The reason I prefer the Fry`s Turkish delight even though it is the same Turkish delight and also Cadbury chocolate it is more Turkish and thinner chocolate and that works better for me. What you get with the dairy milk Turkish is chunkier blocks of chocolate like on a dairy milk but with a helping of the Turkish delight jelly inside.

        The dairy milk Turkish has the same delicious Rose flavoured Turkish jelly centre that I love in the Fry`s bar but you get a lot less of it and the overall taste is one of chocolate, a lot of people might well like it better this way but for me the Turkish centre is what made a Turkish delight bar a true delight.

        There is a lot less fat in the Fry`s version too because there is less chocolate and this could be seen as a good thing, however being that there is more jelly centre there is more sugar in the Fry`s version so there are pro`s and con`s and everyone will have their own preference.

        This is no doubt a tasty bar and one I do enjoy and being that the big bars of it are often on offer at only 99p I do buy these quite often as you will pay over 50p for a small Fry`s Turkish delight these seem like good value for money.

        You can also get these bars in the typical dairy milk size and these cost between 45 and 50p depending where you buy them so be sure to look out for the deals on the larger bars.

        The dairy milk Turkish bar in typical size (around 40g) has 180 calories, 8.2g of fat and over 22g of sugar, so like any other chocolate you will pile on the pounds if you over indulge but remember if you like to really taste the Turkish delight centre and you want something with less fat, then the Fry`s bars are still available and hopefully always will be.

          Another great bar of chocolate from Cadbury!

          I love Cadbury chocolate more than any other make. It is the milk chocolate that I usually target, as it seems so much more tastey. Cadbury Dairy Milk wrappers have a picture of 2 glasses of milk and also list milk first in the ingredients. Let us not forget that there is "the equivalent of three quarters of a pint of fresh liquid milk in every half pound of milk chocolate". So this is the basis of the Dairy Milk Bar - absolute delicious.

          However like you would expect from a company like Cadbury, they like trying different ideas. A more recent idea which was launched in 2003 at the same time as Dairy Milk with mint chips, is to make a Dairy Milk - Turkish. This adds Turkish Delight to the original Dairy Milk Bar, so instead of biting through chunks of dairy milk chocolate, you now have a chunk of Turkish Delight to bite through, which is covered in absolutely delicious milk chocolate. The Turkish Delight tastes very similar to the more familiar FRY's Turkish Delight - which incidentally is owned by Cadbury, so I guess the recipe must be very similar.

          Ingredients

          Milk Chocolate with Turkish Delight Filling:

          Milk Chocolate (Milk, Sugar, Cocoa butter, Cocoa mass, Vegetable Fat, Emulsifier (E442), Flavourings), Turkish delight filling (30%), (Glucose Syrup, Sugar, Modified tapioca starch, gelling agent (agar), Colour (E129), Flavouring).

          Contains Milk, May contain Nuts, Soya, Wheat

          Sodium 0.03g*Equivalent as salt 0.08g

          Experience

          I bought a 7 pack of Cadbury's Crunchie or Dairy Milk Turkish bars £1.49 from Home Bargains. This equates to just over 21p a bar, which I think is fantastic value. If you buy from your newsagent (or similar) expect to pay about 50p a bar, which is still well worth it. I found the bar of chocolate really nice. The sweet milk chocolate blends in well with a high 30% content of Turkish Delight. It isn't messy and it does melt in your mouth. I am a bit confused why Cadburys have 2 very similar bars on the market though - I mean why have the FRY variety and Dairy Milk?

          Anyway it gets the thumbs up from me.

            Dairy Milk Turkish Bar, not bad, but nothing special

            I have always been fond of Turkish Delights from Fry's (now Cadburys - funnily enough) and rate it as one of my favourite chocolate bars. In Morrisons the other day my wife spotted a multi pack of Cadburys Dairy Milk Turkish bars that were on offer with two free extra bars in and figuring that as I generally like Turkish Delight then I would also like these.

            The bar is packaged as above in the recognisable purple wrapper with the white swirl and is one of the series of Dairy Milk bars that have different centres instead of being solid milk chocolate. Rather annoyingly my multipack does not give the weight of each individual bar but does give the total weight of the 7 bars combined which is stated at 274 grams. By my quick calculations this means that each bar weighs in at just under 40 grams each and contains 6 chunks of Dairy Milk per bar.

            Unwrapping the purple wrapper and the awaiting chocolate looks exactly as you would expect a bar of Dairy Milk to look; chunky Cadburys milk chocolate that has an instantly recognisable aroma to it. Snapping a piece off and a whispy strand of the Turkish delight centre escapes from its neighbouring chunk, taking a bite from the chunk and your teeth break through the thick chocolate case to the awaiting purple interior. Unlike the Fry's variety of Turkish delight which has a solid, jelly like consistency the Turkish delight in these bars is actually quite runny. Not quite as runny as caramel but sticky and on the soft side nonetheless.

            The taste of the Turkish delight is sweet and always tastes like a flower to me (not that I eat many flowers, you understand) this is presumably down to the rose flavouring that is always included in these variations and the taste is unlike anything else you can buy. It certainly is an acquired taste that people either love or hate, personally I like it but I know others who can't bear the stuff so this won't appeal to everyone. The Cadburys chocolate tastes as it always does and you really can't complain too much about that, hopefully when Kraft take over they will make sure that the recipe in these bars of chocolates remain the same.

            Each multipack bar contains 180 calories, 22.9 grams of sugar, 8.2 grams of fat - of which 5.1 grams are saturates and 0.08 grams of salt so clearly isn't a bar of chocolate that should be over indulged in. Allergen information warns that these do contain Milk and may contain Nuts, Wheat and Soya, so again if these are of concern then this may be a bar that you need to avoid.

            When compared to a Fry's Turkish delight I have to say that I preferred the Fry's variety as the chocolate is thinner and more brittle and the centre more solid, these bars from Cadburys are very similar to what you tend to find in chocolate box selection and for me the chocolate is a little bit too thick. Not that I don't enjoy these, on the contrary, they are very nice and always go down well, but given the choice I would always go for a Fry's first (even though they are now made by the same company)

            Overall, these are very tasty and should certainly appeal to those of us who like Turkish delight. My multipack of 7 (5+2 free) only cost £1.89 which works out at less than 30p per bar which has to be a great bargain. I can't say I would rush to buy them again as there are other chocolate bars from Cadburys that I prefer, but they were a good choice by Mrs Rooster and one that we will enjoy for a good few days to come.

            A fair rating from me would be 3.5 stars as I found them to be nice but nothing overly special that I would make a habit of buying. As I can't use half-star rating I will round down to 3 which is a bit mean but the nutritional content isn't great and the overall taste for me doesn't match up to a Fry's bar.

            Thanks for reading my review.

              A Wicked Turkish Delight, Loads Better Than The Frys One!

              I've just ate a massive bar of Dairy Milk Turkish, I saw it in the outdoor for 99p and had to buy it or I know I'd have craved the chocolate all night long.

              It's turkish delight only with Dairy Milk chocolate instead of the usual cheap tasting chocolate that is on the Frys bar. This Turkish Delight is also broken up into segments instead of being one big slab and I think that's better because it means you can take your time with it.

              The big bar I had had small squares but if you buy the normal sized chocolate bar then the chunks are the same size as you get with a Caramel or Dairy Milk bar.

              The chocolate is very thick on the segments of chocolate, there's not much jelly inside each piece but it's got quite a strong rose/raspberry flavour and is lovely and sweet. I think the chocolate and jelly go lovely together and the whole bar is mega sweet. I love the soft texture of the jelly because you can chew it down like a very soft sweet, the flavour gets a bit stronger with every bite and the jelly becomes very fruity tasting.

              The chocolate is normal Dairy Milk and is very smooth and creamy, I love putting a square of Turkish into my mouth and letting the chocolate melt away so that I'm left with the yummy jelly at the end. This is the ultimate way to eat this chocolate bar I reckon and you get the best of both worlds because both of them are wicked quality and delish.

              This is deffo not a good bar to eat if you're trying to lose weight, there's loads of sugar and fat in it because you've got the combination of chocolate and jelly. I say who cares though because it's yummy enough that I can forget the lard on my thighs for a bit and just enjoy shovelling pieces of turkish delight into my gob! lol

                turkish delight in a bar!

                Ever since I tried the frys Cadburys Turkish delight chocolate product I have always been a fan of the Turkish delight. The original product is actually one big Turkish delight which means you get more Turkish delight to chocolate for your money however when I saw these bars come out I though they looked really nice and it was a good twist on the original Turkish delight by putting it into the usual six piece shapes Cadburys bar.

                I wasn't disappointed either, the bar tastes fantastic, six individual little pieces which contain a fair amount of the great tasting Turkish delight and then there all surrounded by a lot of the best tasting Cadbury milk chocolate as well.

                I was unsure at first if there would be too much chocolate to Turkish delight in this product and if this would mask the Turkish delight flavour but since having these bars I have actually preferred the taste of this Turkish delight to the original full one. The ration of chocolate to the sugary jelly Turkish delight inside is perfect and it makes the bar taste great.

                They can be bought for the same price as the other Cadburys bars which is about 45-55p so if you haven't tried one of these yet and like Turkish delight then I urge you to get one.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Tasty choccie bar high in sugar and saturated fat.

                I spotted these in Morrisons at the weekend and, as they're something that my partner & I both like, slipped them into the trolley. Each bar weighs around 25/26g so is an ideal size to pop into a lunchbox or to have on a break but then you do need to bear in mind the nutritional information, more of which later.

                The outer packaging of the multipack is predominantly purple with the famous Cadbury Daily Milk logo across the front. Underneath there's a wedge of pink with the word "Turkish" on it. There's a big "5 bars + 2 Free" sign in the top right hand corner. On the back there's the usual ingredients, nutritional information and all the rest of the usual bumpf you'd expect to see along with the Cadbury website address:- www.cadbury.co.uk

                On opening the pack you'll find 7 of the Dairy Milk Turkish bars which are individually wrapped. These also have the logos on the front & the ingredients & nutritional information on the back. Each bar contains 6 segments of chocolate which measures around 3 1/2 cms by 2 cms.

                Nutritional Information per bar {per 100g in brackets}

                Contains: milk
                May contain: nuts, wheat, soya


                Ingredients:

                Milk Chocolate {Milk, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Vegatable Fat, Emulsifiers (E442, E476), Flavourings. Turkish Delight Filling (30%) (Glucose Syrup, Sugar, Modified Tapioca Starch, Gelling Agent (Agar), Colour (E219), Flavouring)

                Price:

                I paid £1.64p for a multipack of these which contains 7 bars of Dairy Milk Turkish.



                Taste & Opinion:

                This chocolate in this bar is rich & creamy with a taste that lingers slightly after you've eaten it. I don't find it to be too oversweet but a number of friends of mine think that it's quite sickly & prefer to stick to dark chocolate instead. As with most of the chocolate products I buy I like to pop it into the fridge & then crunch into it rather than allow it to melt in the mouth. When you bite into it you can taste the Turkish delight filling which doesn't taste too oversweet either in my opinion. The difference between the harder chocolate & the softer Turkish Delight filling makes a nice contrast I think, although the Turkish Delight filling doesn't create as much of an impression on your taste buds as the caramel in the Dairy Milk Caramel bar does.

                So far so good in terms of taste but then you see the bad new on the "Each Bar Contains" panel. For just one small bar of chocolate (around 25g) you get:-

                25.4% of your Recommended Daily Amount of sugar
                and
                25.5% of your Recommended Daily Amount of saturated fat

                Those are high figures for sugar & saturated fat by any stretch of the imagination, particularly when you consider the size & weight of the bar & the fact that it's probably taken you less than 3 minutes to actually eat the thing. You certainly wouldn't want to eat more than one in a single sitting, especially if you were on a diet or trying to watch your weight. There are certainly other sweet / dessert options out there that ramp up the sugar or fat counters but actually provide you with more 'weight' for your trouble.



                In terms of the Cadbury's Caramel bar ithe Turkish bar is worse for you on both the sugar & saturated fat fronts with the following amounts listed for the Caramel bar:-

                21.2% of your Recommended Daily Amount of sugar
                and
                13.0% of your Recommended Daily Amount of saturated fat


                The Cadbury's Dairy Milk has the following amount listed which means that the Turkish is worse for you in terms of sugar but better in terms of saturated fat.

                24.7% of your Recommended Daily Amount of sugar
                and
                36.5% of your Recommended Daily Amount of saturated fat


                And in terms of the Cadbury's Fruit 'n' Nut (figures below) the Turkish is worse for you in terms of sugar but better for saturated fat.

                24% of your Recommended Daily Amount of sugar
                and
                28.5% of your Recommended Daily Amount of saturated fat


                In terms of Dairy Milk, Fruit & Nut, Caramel and Turkish then the Turkish is worst in terms of sugar. In terms of saturated fat however, it's ranks third as it's not as bad as Dairy Milk or Fruit 'n' Nut. As with the rest of the Cadbury bars these bars is that they really are very nice. But, for 6 little segments of chocolate, this bar uses up more than a quarter of your RDA for both sugar & saturated fat so for those of you watching their weight it's better to find other treats that are lower in sugar, fat & saturated fat.
                Overall then, it's got a nice taste but it's unhealthy for what you get.

                  nice!

                  Don't buy this bar expecting authentic Turkish Delight - this Cadbury's version contains a pink filling that is sweeter and much softer (even if left in the fridge) than real turkish delight but I do still like the taste. The consistency is quite runny compared to the chewy texture you get with real Turkish Delight, like caramel if not left in the fridge, but the taste is reasonably similar to rose flavoured turkish delight, although much sweeter.

                  The bar consists of a Cadbury's dairy milk bar filled with the turkish filling and has more chocolate covering the filling than you would get on a Fry's Turkish Delight, which i think is a good thing!

                  The bar comes in standard individual size for about 48p as well as larger sizes including the 230g bar that is currently on offer at Tesco for 99p although the standard price for this size can now be up to £1.50.

                  I'd recommend the bar as a nice treat although eating to much can be a bit sickly so its one to share!

                    great product!

                    I first tried this Cadbury Dairy Milk Turkish Delight today after seeing the large bars in my local store at a price of 2 for £3.

                    The packaging is the typical Dairy Milk chocolate bar packaging, except it has a pink swirl at the bottom rather than the colours used for the other bars from Cadbury Dairy Milk. It looks like a rather feminine packaging, although I'm sure both genders would really enjoy this chocolate bar.

                    The inside of the chocolate is pink in colour just the same as the packaging and has a really soft and smooth texture. The chocolate is really smooth and melts in the mouth as well and this makes this chocolate bar a very nice treat, even if it's not the healthiest option out there.

                    Each bar contains 230g and each chunk of chocolate is 2% of your GDA of calories so it's a pretty unhealthy chocolate bar, although the taste certainly makes up for the calorie content! Despite it's unhealthiness, it's still a great treat every now and then.

                    Per 100g:

                    Cadbury's Dairy Milk Turkish - try it out now !

                    I was never a huge lover of Cadburys Dairy Milk Turkish. It took a while for my friends to convince me these were utterly gorgeous. After months of persuasion i finally gave in and tried this bar.

                    This chocolate bar comes in the attractive purple, white and pink wrapper. You have the famous Cadbury's logo at the topand Dairy Milk written in the middle clearly, with turkish at the bottom. There are 6 chunks of bars inside, that can be broken apart.

                    This bar is simply and Dairy milk bar with Turkish Delight filling. This is a very sweet one, it's not to everyones taste, it took me a few tries to actually like this bar. I only tend to eat these when someone gets them out and offers as they are way too sweet for me, i wouldn't go out of my way to buy them. I would suggest putting it away in a fridge or something as there is nothing worse than tasting warm/hot chocolate bars that have a sweet filling in anyway. On the back are all your nutritional information. It does say the bar may contain traces of nuts and Soya and wheat.

                    I do know there are around 465 Cals per 100g. Also 5.3g - Protein, 63.7g - Carbohydrate, 0.7g - Fibre, 20.8g - Fat, 0.07g - Sodium. The bar is 140g in weight and cost me 99p

                    Would i recommend this bar to you ?

                    Yes i would, it is a bit on the sickly sweet side but you don;t have to cram it all in and lots of people love sweet fillings and chocolate. So do go and buy one and see for yourself.

                      Dairy Milk Turkish

                      Turkish Delight is one of those products that I really wished I liked because it looks so good but unfortunately having tried it one a few occasions years ago I never got into it. I think it had something to do with all that powder that the sweets seem to be covered in.



                      Turkish Delight is a confectionery made from starch and sugar. It is generally flavoured with rosewater and lemon which gives it its distinctive taste and colour. I thought I would like it because to me it looks like big lumps of jelly and has the same type of consistency if a bit stickier than actual jelly. The powder covering it is generally actually icing sugar which is applied to stop the pieces sticking to each other.



                      When I saw that Cadburys Dairy Milk now have a Turkish delight variety I thought I would give it one more try to see if I could grow to love it. They call the product just Dairy Milk Turkish.


                      The bar is much like all the other Dairy Milk bars and contains 6 chunks of chocolate 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.

                      The chocolate then covers a layer of Turkish Delight. The delight is quite a thick layer so for those of you who like it this is good. When you bite into it I think it is actually a bit harder than the regular Turkish Delight that you get in boxes not covered with chocolate. This is maybe because it is easier to keep the bar together like this. The Turkish Delight has the familiar rose flavour to it that most varieties have. It is quite sweet smelling and definitely has a very sweet taste to it.

                      This is a good quality product but unfortunately it did not do enough to make me like Turkish Delight as I still don't really like the rose water taste and consistency unfortunately!

                      The wrapping of this bar is quite distinctive and eye-catching. This one has the familiar purple colour on the top of the wrapper with Dairy Milk written on it and then the bottom half of the wrapper is a lovely pink/mauve colour with Turkish written on it in traditional style writing.

                      A 6 chunk bar has 180 calories and 8.2g of fat so they are really no worse or better than other Dairy Milk varieties but unfortunately not a bar for me!

                        Average

                        I was a little unsure when Cadbury's started messing with their classic Dairy Milk. Dairy Milk with caramel (what was wrong with Cadbury's caramel anyways), Dairy Milk with biscuit and Dairy Milk with Turkish Delight were just some of the new bars that were introduced. It seems to have worked though as they are still around a few years on and I think even I am convinced (on some of them) but there will still be no match for the original.

                        The packaging of the Dairy Milk Turkish is probably one of the prettiest, if a little girly. The Cadbury's purple is teamed up with cerise pink and it's an eyecatching one on the shelf. I think it's clever how Cadbury's have created all these new flavours but not messed about with their iconic packaging too much. Everyone knows and trusts that purple and all they've done is tweaked it for each new flavour.

                        The chocolate is sweet and chunky and as you would expect from Dairy Milk. The Turkish Delight filling has a lovely sweet rose flavour to it. Really good Turkish Delight is quite heavy and chewy but this has a slighty runnier consistency, I woulds imagine to make it more to the palette of the masses as I lot a lot of people don't really likethe chewy chunks of Turkish Delight you get. Maybe also, as it's a small amount in each chuck, you probably could not get the consistency with such a small amount.

                        The calories content is as would would expect, this is treat stuff. Per 6 chunk bar contains 180 calories, 22.9g sugar and 8.2g fat (5.1g of this is saturates). Not one for watching your weight then, but a delicious treat though.

                        Overall a tasty offering from Cadbury, but not one I'd buy very often, as there's better Cadbury products than this and better Turkish Delight too.

                          Recommended.

                          I really like Cadbury Dairy Milk Turkish bars so I was really pleased to find they're only £1 for a pack of seven bars in Tesco this week!! That's less than 15p a bar which you'd be hard pushed to beat even in one of those cheap shops.

                          It doesn't say on my individual wrapper how many grams my bar is but it's one chunk short of the standard bars you buy in shops for 50p each. It also says there are 180 calories in one of these and 8.3g of fat which is something to think about if you're watching your waistline.

                          What I like about these is that Cadbury manage to mix dairy milk with turkish delight in just the right quantities. So I get a good thick chocolate bar flavour as well as a good strong dose of turkish delight flavour. I really like the soft texture of this too.

                          There are lower fat turkish delight bars out there including Frys as there is a lot less chocolate on that. So I think this one is for people who really want a good dose of chocolate more than anything else! A bargain at their current price but good all year round too.

                          Great choc combo

                          For many years, the appeal of Turkish Delight completely escaped me. I knew it merely from C.S.Lewis' The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, and it seemed to me as an acquired taste more than anything. I didn't try it as a kid, even though my younger brother ate it on occasion and futilely told me it was lovely.

                          Then a couple of years ago, I was handed a piece of this chocolate, Cadbury's Dairy Milk Turkish. Cadbury's is one of the best known makers of chocolate and other confectionery products, and their Dairy Milk chocolate is ever popular. Their 'Turkish' product features the usual milk chocolate coating but with a soft Turkish Delight filling, and I have to say that as I was offered a piece of this without knowing what it was, I throughly enjoyed it, and have done ever since, to the point where I prefer it to other Cadbury's products.

                          Currently, a 140g bar of the chocolate will cost you 99p, as all of Cadbury's 140g bars are on offer. Normally, they cost closer to £2 for the same bar, so this is a bargain. The chocolate itself is smooth and milky, with plenty of flavour that tastes very nice indeed. The combination of the choc and the Turkish Delight is very good, and the feel in the mouth is a nice contrast as well, with the jelly-like Turkish Delight blending nicely with the melting chocolate as it mixes in your mouth.

                          It can be quite sickly, as you would expect with most choc products, so it's kind of hard to devour the entire bar without feeling sick. The bonus of this is that you can stretch it over a few days. This is well worth buying, and Cadbury's also do a wide range of their products, including a very nice Caramel version, although the Turkish Delight one holds top place in their different bars with me at the moment.
