Advantages: Tastes like chocolate never tasted before
Disadvantages: Can be messy
Cadbury flakes have been around for a long time, my parents certainly remember having one as a treat when they were younger. When I was a child I always thought of flakes as an adult choice of chocolate, they seemed more grown up and sophisticated that other choices and now I know why my mum encouarged these thoughts in my head. Have you ever given a flake to a 5/6 year old? Talk about crumbly flakey mess! So I shall certainly be passing on my childhoos thoughts to my own children, plus this of course has added benefits - I get to eat all of the flakes in the multipack!
So as you can guess already I quite like to eat a flake. They are made from cadbury chocolate. The original flavour is the unique tasting dairy milk that the British tend to love and some tell us is not proper chocolate, but we don't care, we love it! The texture is flaky (as suggested by its name) and crumbly. It is silky smooth to eat and melts in the mouth. As the advert used to say 'tastes like chocolate never tasted before.' The bar itself is a stick of the flaky dairy milk chocolate. It's protection from ravenous parents and other adults is the yellow wrapper that although has always had a sophistciated look to it, it has also had a variety of designs. The yellowness of the wrapper only serves to make it stand out in a crowd of other less sophisticated chocolates.
How do you eat yours? Well we havethat saying for another famous cadbury invention but we could apply this concept to the flake. Do you:
1) Take bites of it until you have finished.
2) Break it up into medium to large pieces before you open the packet and then pick up each flakey morsal until you have finished.
3) Break it right up into tiny flake and then open one end of the packet and tip the contents into your mouth.
4) Another way - let me know.
I do a combination of 1 and 2.
The calorie content of the flake is not great but it it is better than some others, so for the 32g of chocolate sensation you will be eating 76kcal. Flakes do not contain gluten, wheat or egg them suitable for a Celiac.
You can buy flakes as single items for upwards of approximately 40p. You can also buy them in multipacks.
The flake advertisements are unique and the jingle 'only the flakiest crumbliest chocolate, tastes like chocolate never tasted before' is iconic. It has been voted as third most popular jingle fo all time! Everybody knows it!
Flake have now expanded their range in flavours. Personally I think that the original flavour can't be beaten but they have come up with some novel ideas - flake dipped being one of them.
Overall I think this chocolate bar is worth its weight in gold. Take a moment and sit with your flake, close your eyes and imagine you are on that beach (or wherever is your ideal location), eat your flake and live in that dream world.
