Cadbury Flake (original)
Advantages: Taste, Smell, Packaging
Disadvantages: Calories, Not The Cheapest Chocolate On The Market!
The flake comes in the form of a 39 gram bar. The bar is wrapped in colourful, bright yellow and purple packaging which has the Cadbury logo and product name (Flake) on the front. The back of the packaging lists ingredients, calories, contact info etc. Overall the packaging is quite luxurious looking because of the rich colours, but it is ideal for anyone - men, women, children - i especially think that children would be attracted to this due to the bright colours. I don't think the packaging would put anyone off buying this product as it's so versatile and suitable for anyone.
Taste & Smell:
This tastes pretty much like an average cadburys milk chocolate bar, but because of the flaky texture it alters the taste a bit more because it spreads over the tounge more - it's hard to explain! It's a very milky, chocolatey taste and because of the delicate texture it melts quite quickly which is nice. The smell is also lovely and much more prominant than a normal dairy milk bar - it's a chocolatey smell but has a really sweet tint to it aswell and overall the smell and taste is lovely. I love savouring this and because it's quite a fiddly chocolate bar it does take that bit more longer to eat it so it's nice to enjoy each crumb! When i was little i remember my mum freezing these as it helped them stay together rather than crumbling all over, but to be honest i think that kids like the crumbliness as it makes it more of a fun and unusual chocolate bar.
170 calories and 9.9 grams of fat per bar, and an absoloutley shocking 17.7g of sugar! Not bad as a treat but it wouldn't be healthy to eat these everyday. There is a very tiny plus side though - each bar contains 2.6g of protein. This chocolate bar also contains E numbers.
Price & Availability:
Flakes are available everywhere! Newsagents, supermarkets, garages, etc. I think personally the cheapest place to buy them is supermarkets, and i get mine from Tesco. They're 56p each but are available in multipacks of 4 or 9. A multipack of 4 is £1.65 and a 9 pack is £2.74. This is not the cheapest chocolate available, but at the end of the day you're paying for the quality and the fact that this is a Cadbury's product.
A nice chocolate bar as a treat, but not something i would reccomend indulging in too much due to both the price and calories.
Summary: Nice For A Once In A While Treat!
