“ Brand: Cadbury / Type: White „
If you consider all of Cadbury's chocolate bars, a large majority of their products which would spring to mind would more than likely contain some form of milk chocolate. Cadbury's Dream however would probably not feature ... more than likely as it is not one of Cadbury's best example of its chocolate products
The Dream chocolate bar comes in a light blue wrapper. On the front of the bar are white clouds and Dream written in blue font.
The price of a standard 45g bar is 50p. My local newsagent sells these however not many stores still sell Dream bars.
The Dream chocolate bar is very much like a Dairy Milk bar only made from white chocolate. Long and a standard bar car be broken into 6 pieces.
Scent wise the bar does not have much of an aroma, it almost smells quite plasticy, which is not the most appealing.
White chocolate would not be my first choice if I was to choose a bar of chocolate but I am partial to Milky Bar every now and then. Therefore I did not think a Cadbury's Dream could be that bad or offensive. How wrong was I? The taste when you first bite into the bar is very bland, a slightly creamy taste but not a sweet pleasant creamy white chocolate like a Milky Bar. The taste does not really develop as you chew and I find that I get a very dry mouth and need to take a drink to swallow the chocolate bar. The white chocolate does not melt in very mouth and stays quite solid.
The after taste of a Dream is what I really do not like. A greasy feeling is left in your mouth and there is something that reminds me of cheese. Not a strong type of cheese but of cheap mild white cheese, which can also be quite bland, plasticy and greasy.
Not at all creamy white chocolate like a Milky Bar.... Just bland and unpleasant.
Per 45g Bar
Slightly less calories and fat than a Dairy Milk which is of a similar size.
I am very partial to chocolate, and it is not often I turn it down, but if you offered me a Cadbury's Dream I wouldn't even be tempted to say yes.
I thought I knew my chocolate, so when my sister bought me a bar of Cadbury's Dream white chocolate last week and told me it had been around for years I was shocked as I've never noticed it before.
It comes in a lovely light blue wrapper which is decorated with clouds, it's a nice wrapper but I can see why it's been overlooked as it doesn't exactly stand out amongst the brighter and more interesting chocolate bars in the shelves.
The bar I had was a thin one which cost around 20p, it's the same size as the old Wildlife bars that my daughters' used to eat. As I said, it's white chocolate and I'm not much of a white chocolate fan so I wasn't overly impressed with my sisters offering!
I was pleasantly surprised though, Cadbury's have made a very nice white chocolate here which is nothing like their horrible white chocolate buttons. This is a very adult white chocolate, it's sweet but not overly so and creamier than a Milky Bar. It doesn't melt in my mouth as well as I'd like as even though the bar is thin this is overall a rather solid chocolate.
I really enjoyed it, but was glad my sister bought the small bar rather than the Dairy Milk sized one that is apparently also available. It does get a little sickly after a while, actually rather quickly as within a couple of small bites I was starting to feel like I'd had enough of this bar. White chocolate is sickly anyway I think and this is no worse than any other bar as far as this goes, but personally when Lent is over I'll be tucking into a Bournville rather than a Dream bar!
Cadbury dream - A bar of white chocolate
It's always going to be hard to launch something new which is in direct competition with another brand, unless you are well established like Cadbury and you have easy access to advertisement then that part becomes easy and it just comes down to the question. Is my product good?
Unfortunately for Cadbury with the dream I just don't think it come close to matching the competition with this white chocolate. How it lasted 7 years I don't know because if i walked into a shop and say the Cadbury's dream next to lets say a milkybar, i know for sure that I wouldn't be spending my money on a Cadbury's dream.
My thing with white chocolate is that when I eat it I don't like the chocolate sucking all the moisture out of mouth and throat and making my jaw ache because of it, this is what the Cadbury dream does, when I ate it my mouth did dry out and make me need to drink, but then when I finished it it had also dried out the back of my throat and make it quite uncomfortable.
However the taste of the Cadbury dream is quite pleasant, it is just the other aspects of it which let it down, so it does have that, but i wouldn't say it rivalled other brands.
Launched in 2001, Cadbury Dream is made of real, smooth, melt-in-your-mouth white chocolate. Importantly, Dream contains full-cream milk and cocoa butter.
