A Chocolate Picnic!
Member Name: star3683
Advantages: great combination of textures and flavours
Disadvantages: can be a little expensive if purchased at full price or individually
I make packed lunch daily for myself and my husband and always put a chocolate bar in for a treat. So we do not get bored with eating the same things I try and vary all the items, including the chocolate bar. I am also a bargain hunter and hate paying full price for anything so when I spotted multi-packs of Cadbury's Picnic bars on offer in Asda I quickly snapped a pack up as it is a chocolate bar that I normally overlook and had not had for some time.
The picnic bars are made by Cadburys and are bars of milk chocolate with a caramel, peanut, crispy cereal and raisin centre. I purchased a multi-pack containing four 48.4g picnic bars for just £1.00. I thought that this was great value working out at just £0.25 per bar as if purchased individually can cost upwards of £0.60 depending upon the stores pricing.
The individual picnic bars come packaged in a purple wrapper which is the signature colour of Cadburys. The front of the wrapper is quite eye catching with the work 'picnic' written in bubble writing with raisins and peanuts which appear to be exploding out of the wording. There is also the Cadbury's logo and a little bubble on the front telling you that the bar contains 230 calories. On the back of the wrapper you can find more detailed information including ingredients listings, nutritional information, item description and allergy advice.
Opening the bar is really easy to do by simply tearing one of the jaggered edges at the end of the wrapper. When you reveal the bar it is very uneven as you can see where the raisins and peanuts are under the chocolate covering. When you bite into the bar you get a lovely combination of flavours and textures of all the different ingredients in the bar. The cereal pieces offer a lovely crispiness and help the bar to seem quite light still while the peanuts also offer a crunchy texture. Then you have the juicy raisins and chewy caramel all covered in the delicious, creamy Cadbury's dairy milk chocolate.
Overall I really enjoyed eating these picnic bars they are very different to a lot of Cadbury's other chocolate bars. It was nice to have a good combination of different ingredients and they all worked together perfectly to make this a very yummy chocolate bar.
Summary: A different chocolate bar from Cadbury's.
