      A firm fave but bring back the fruit and nut in proper quantity

      Is it just my imagination or has Cadbury''s classic treat become less fruity and nutty over the years? This has always been a favorite of mine but I can still remember the days when a bite of Fruit and Nut meant just that and not just an empty mouthful of plain old dairy milk with hardly any fruit or indeed nut to show for it. It may be my age showing, but many confectionery treats such as this one seem to have dwindled in both size and quality over the years.It used to be if you bit into this bar it was bursting with juicy raisins and sultanas and had a good ratio of nut to chocolate. Nowadays your''e lucky if you find five or six raisins and a few measly nut particles. Never the less it remains a firm fave and continues to do my waist line no favors at all which is just the way chocolate is supposed to be so Ill continue to enjoy and just hope that My Cadbury brings back a hearty mouthful of what he promises on his labels, I like to get what I''m paying for.

      Creamy milk chocolate with a sprinkling of fruit and nuts

      ===The Product===

      Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut.
      Has redesigned wrapper to what is shown above which is now mostly the famous Cadbury purple with 'Fruit and Nut' in red and with an image or an almond and a raisin.
      Also has the famous 'glass and a half' image.
      My bar was the larger 200 grams.
      Long shelf life - mine was until November 2014.
      Five chunks is equal to 25 grams and 123 calories (this also contains 6.6 grams of fat and a whopping 13.5 grams of sugar which is 145% of your daily allowance).
      Suitable for Vegetarians.
      Made under licence form Cadbury by Mondelez of Birmingham.
      There are 8 rows of five chunks in the 200 gram bar.
      Each chunk has 'Cadbury' imprinted on it.



      ===Cost===

      £1.99 at full price.



      ===My Opinion===

      Cadbury fruit and nut bars have been made since 1926 so have definitely stood the test of time.

      Lots of us of a certain age will remember the TV adverts which went on about 'Everyone's a Fruit and Nut Case'!

      I cannot recall the last time I had a bar of fruit and nut chocolate and received one from my sister along with a pile of different treats.

      The bars come in smaller and larger sizes but the 200 gram bar is for me one that will last about four or five days.

      Looking at the ingredients the sugar content is huge but as chocolate should be an occasional treat (which it is for me) I was not too worried about that - though anyone who eats sweets and chocolates regularly would have to be more careful.

      The wrapper shows that five chunks of this chocolate is equivalent to 123 calories. There are eight rows of five chunk making forty in all so my bar lasted me a good few days as five chunks at a time was plenty for me - though my husband will finish off a bar in one sitting - way too much for me to cope with.

      The wrapper now has more purple to make it readily identifiable as Cadbury and I found that these new wrappers are resealable - you full the foil apart on the reverse side and if you are careful when opening it a little it will close back easily.

      The smell as soon as you open the wrapper is lovely and easily identifiable as milk chocolate.

      The creamy chocolate is sweet and melt in your mouth without being too sickly - providing you do not eat too much.

      This bar, being fruit and nut is sprinkled with the odd raisin and almond which are a lovely flavour - the raisins are juicy and the nuts crunchy. The only thing I would say is that they are very few and fr between - the ingredients state £13% raisins and 7% almonds - I am not sure if this is less than I remember or not but from memory I do feel that there used to be more fruit and nut in the old bars.

      The bar is a nice sweet treat but the limited amount of fruit and nuts makes me feel it is not much different to a normal Dairy Milk bar.



      ===Star Rating===

      4 stars. Marked down as I feel they should have a bit more fruit and nuts.



      ===Would I Recommend?===

      Yes.



      ===Website===

      www.cadbury.co.uk



      ===Ingredients===

      Milk chocolate (Milk, Sugar, Cocoa butter, Cocoa mass, Vegetable fat, Emulsifiers (E442, E476), Flavourings), Dusted raisins (13%) (Raisins, Cocoa), Almonds (7%).

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      NIce variation from the standard chocolate

      Not really a massive chocolate fan, I was somewhat suprised when my mum bought me a massive bar of cadbury's fruit and nut. If I do eat chocolate, cabury's will always be my first choice, due to the flavour and texture that it has. I find that cadbury's choclate is quite rich, however, I do quite like the rich, creamy taste it has. Texture wise, I find it quite smooth and a pleasure to eat.

      I prefer cadbury's chocolate to other chocolate brands, especially its nearest rival galaxy. I tend to find that galaxy chocolate is slightly more salty and grainer in texture.The onlt problem I have with Cadbury chocolate is that it makes me quite thirsty, even after eating a small amount. The other problem I have is that if it is slightly melting, eating it can be quite sickly.

      Ok, the nut and raison version has been something I've never really tried before. The nuts are quite large in size and not crushed up into smaller pieces which is something I was expecting, so that took me by suprise.The nuts themselves are plain in taste, so it adds quite a neutral nut flavour, but with a nice crunch and bite to the soft texture of the chocolate. I do find sometimes, that if you get a large chunk of just the nut on its own, it isn't too nice, especially as I don't really like eating nuts on their own!

      With the addition of the nice, sweet raisons, it makes the chocolate taste very nice. It does not add to the sweetness of the chocolate as expected , but instead adds another flavour and chewy texture which I must say have become a big fan of.

      I can eat more of the nut and raison version chocolate than I can with the original version. I find it does make a nice variation, even more so if you have yet to try it before.

        The perfect bar for any time.

        As I sit here writing this I am eating a bar of Cadbury's Fruit and Nut. I always enjoy a bar of fruit and nut as you always know what you're going to get when you open it. Each bar always has the same high quality Cadbury's chocolate with that added benefit of raisins and almonds. That is another thing that is so good about Cadbury's Fruit and Nut, i hate peanuts but most nut type chocolate bars contain them. Cadbury's have opted to use a different nut, a less over-powering nut, in the form of almonds.

        The packaging of Fruit and Nut is purple and red with the classic white milk line running through the middle towards the Cadbury's logo. The bars come in a range of sizes to suit all needs.

        The ingredients contain nothing out of the ordinary, with only two E numbers to contend with.

        I will now return to my Fruit and Nut bar hopefully leaving you all feeling that Fruit and Nut is the way to go.

        My favourite chocolate bar

        A while ago I reviewed Cadburry's Cranberry and Granola bar, and described it as a sexier version of my favourite Fruit and Nut bar. As I write this I have just finished eating a small bar, and so thought that this would be the perfect time to finally get around to reviewing this masterpiece of chocolate.

        Cadbury's Fruit and Nut is simply just like a normal bar of Cadbury's chocolate, but with raisins and almonds encased in each square. I like how the sweetness of the raisins complements the comparatively savouriness of the almonds, and the mixture of these with chocolate goes together very well. Most of you will know the taste of Cadbury's chocolate (and if you don't, then it's probably because you don't like chocolate in general, and so this review is fairly irrelevant to you), and will know that it manages to be delicious without being too sweet. I feel that the sweetness level of Cadbury's chocolate is perfect in this bar, as if it was sweeter or less sweet, the mixture would probably taste quite strange. Galaxy do a very similar bar to Fruit and Nut, and it is true that the extra creaminess of Galaxy chocolate means that their bar just isn't quite as good as Cadbury's. Having said that, Galaxy uses hazelnuts rather than almonds, which makes the mixture better than it could have been.

        This being chocolate, it isn't one of the healthiest things in the world, and a 49g bar (6 squares of chocolate) contains 240 calories. While this isn't too bad at all for something that you have once in a while, you'd be surprised how easy it is to eat a whole large 200g bar in one day, which would weigh in at roughly 1000 calories. If you're thin and not worried about your weight, than this isn't a problem at all, but since being overweight or obese can damage your health, it's best not too eat it too often if you're worried about your current weight. Of course, a little bit of what you fancy every now and then is much better for you than constantly worrying about your health and weight, so have a bar if you feel like it.

        In conclusion, this is one of my favourite chocolate bars, and is usually the one that I go for when I feel like having something sweet. I love it enough to be able to ramble on about it for ages, but since this is only a small bar of chocolate, a short review on the subject will almost definitely be more useful to the reader than one filled with padding and rubbish. I love this chocolate and would recommend it to all people, except for those who hate chocolate, raisins or almonds, and will definitely eat it time and time again myself.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Good for some variety.

          I am a huge fan orf cadburys dairy milk. I feel like the cadburys brand can do no wrong and create a bit of magic with everything they try. Unfortunately Cadburys fruit and nut is the least favorite of all my cadburys products. That does not mean it is not good, just that I feel like the others are so good that it takes some beating!

          Cadburys fruit and nut is a long standing memeber of the cadburys family and comes in a variety of sized bars. The packing is the traditional cadburys colour, purple, with the cadburys logo on the front and the words fruit and nut written on it, with some pictures of what it contains.

          The packaging is foil type, so keeps the chocolate bar fresh. It is easy to tear off without dropping or ruining the chocolate bar itself. I do not know if the packaging is recyclable or not. Within the packaging is the bar itself, made of even square chunks of chocolate with cadburys embossed on them. The chunks are easy to break about and eat as little snack sized pieces. The bar consists mainly of cadburys dairy milk with hazlenuts and raisins inside. They are generously added, and give a nice texture to the bar. The nuts add a crunchy bit and the raisins add a chewy bit. Neither ingredient really add to the flavour, I feel they are mostly there for the texture.

          Overall this is a good chocolate bar. It has a nice taste (due to the dairy milk) and a more varied texture, due to the added ingredients. I personally prefer the other flavoured bars such as caramel and crunchie, but I do know a lot of people who enjoy this bar.

            Its too yummy to say not to!

            Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit & Nut was launched in 1928 by Cadburys. It is basically a diary milk with almonds and raisins, which makes it extra special.

            The small bars (49 gms) is usually sold for 25p to 54p depending whether you buy it in general superstores or in petrol kiosks. They do come in mutlipacks for a pound. The bigger bar 230 gms is available usually for £1.50. It is good value but quite difficult to finish at once. Usually I like to finish a bar when I open the wrapper otherwise they tend to change their texture. During winters they become harder and sometimes slightly pale and during summers, they just melt. The number and almonds you find in it not much but depends on the bars too- you will be lucky if you find more than 3 in the small ones. I remember one of my bars didn't have even one- they were only filled with raisins- very disappointed. I do find a lot of raisins though in all bars. But that didn't stop me from eating them! It is so delicious that this was one of my cravings during pregnancy too!

              Buy in smaller bars and enjoy as a special treat

              For many years I did not eat chocolate at all, but recently I have started to eat little bits now and again...nothing like the six bars a day I used to gorge on!

              Cadbury's is by far the best chocolate for me as I like the milky creamy taste of it. They now have it with many different additions, such as caramel, turkish delight or just whole nuts, but for me the fruit and nut chocolate bar is the real classic.

              Recently, when I was in Tescos I decided to try their own bar of fruit and nut as their chocolate is ok and half the price of Cadburys.

              It tasted ok, but I was amazed at the imbalance of nuts and fruit and how if you had too much of either in the bars it made it unenjoyable. This is where I think cadburys get it right. The bar is a perfect balance of the fruit (but please do not try to justify this as one of your five a day..it isn't!) and nuts, that each bite leaves you wanting more.... there should be a word of warning here however, as each square contains 30 calories, which may not sound a lot but it soon adds up....you could try limiting the amount of squares that you eat, but as you know, when you start on the chocolate that kind of becomes impossible!

              I would suggest that the big bars are avoided (only because I believe in moderation!) and instead you buy the smaller bars. I recently bought four smaller bars (with 6 pieces in ...or 180 calories!) for just £1, which I think is very good value.

              CHocolate as with all foods of this nature should be enjoyed...but in conjuntion with a healthy diet and active lifestyle.

              So endeth my sermon :)

                Great tasing chocolate

                Cadburys Fruit and Nut.


                I LOVE CHOCOLATE.

                It doesnt love me though, all those calories !!!!!
                Sometimes you just cant resist though.
                I recently brought a bar of Cadburys Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut chocolate. I purchased a large bar, greedy arnt i, but find it better value for money, well thats my excuse anyway.

                I purchased the 230g, bar from my local Co-op store, cost £1.75p, but think you could possibly find it cheaper in a larger supermarket maybe.

                The bar coloured half purperly blue and half red, with Cadbury in white, and Dairy Milk in blue on a white background, and Fruit and Nut in red, on a white background. With a picture of a square of delicious chocolate surrounded by nuts and raisins. Stating be treat wise get to know your G D A,s ( Guideline daily amounts) on the back of the packet the calories stated Cals as 30, sugars at 3.2g, Fat at 1.5g Saturates at 0.8gs and a trace of salt. Thats 30 Kcat per square (as if you would only eat one square lol)

                Cadburys choclate is full of Cocoa beans, stating they come from Ghana. And they state that they pay a little extra to get the best quality beans. The bars are made at Trebor Bassett, they give a freephone number on the packet in case of queries or problems.

                I put my chocolate bar in the fridge, as like it to be cold so that i can snap the pieces of choclate off easily.

                The quality of this chocolate is excellent the raisins are nice sized ones, and the almonds are always cruncy, great tasting.

                Cadburys state a whole three quarters of a glass of fresh liquid milk goes into every half pound of milk choclate.

                Cadburys also have an online gift shop, stated on the packet.

                Looking at the symbols on the packet there is the royal crest stating by appointment to H. M. The Queen ( wonder if she eats this ?).

                Also suitable for vegetarians.The bar lasts until december 2009, but dont think it will last the week out in my fridge.

                Chocolate Krispie Cake.(Great Treat)

                Bet we have all made these !, melt the chocolate and mix with Rice Krispies.
                Once all covered pop into cake cases then into a fridge to set. With the addidtion of the fruit and nuts makes for great cakes, once cool. Expensive you can use cooking choclate, but if you want a taste of luxury (use Cadburys).Fruit and Nut.

                Summary: Well off to eat another square, of this great tasting chocolate.

                Thanks for reading and rating my review :) xx

                  Disadvantages

                  A chocolate with a difference

                  Now I wouldn't exactly say that I am the world's biggest Fruit and Nut chocolate fan but every now and then I don't mind a small bar of this chocolate and Dairy Milk's Fruit & Nut is always what I reach for.

                  When I buy these bars I usually buy them in packs of four, as my mum and dad quite like this chocolate too and purchasing four bars in a pack is much cheaper. Each of the four bars contained within these packs weighs 39g and is individually wrapped in Dairy Milk's iconic purple wrapping, this time with a red band to signify that the bar is fruit & nut.

                  The nutritional information for the bars is contained on the outside wrapping of the four pack and on the individual wrappers of each bar. The nutritional values are as follows:
                  Per Bar
                  190 calories
                  3.5g protein
                  21.9g carbohydrates
                  21.6g (of which sugars)
                  10.2g fat
                  5.7g (of which saturates)

                  Now obviously being chocolate these bars aren't particularly healthy but they do make a nice treat. Also being a bar of Fruit and Nut milk chocolate the product does contain both Milk and Nuts and so is not suitable for anyone with such an allergy.

                  Underneath the wrapping of each individual bar you will find seven decently sized chunks of chocolate. If the chocolate is particularly solid, i.e. has been in the fridge then these chunks will be very difficult to break apart but if eaten straight after purchase or after being stored in a cool cupboard the chunks break apart with ease whilst the chocolate remains solid.

                  When placed in your mouth the chunks of chocolate immediately begin to melt and a rich and creamy taste floods your mouth. It is at this point that the raisins and nuts can be tasted and the amount of these within the bar is plentiful without being too much and overpowering the ultimate taste of the chocolate. The raisins seem always to remain soft and relatively chewy and the nuts are constantly solid and decently sized pieces.

                  An individual bar of this chocolate will cost you around the 45p mark but four packs - like the ones I purchase - can readily be found in most discount type stores and more often than not that wonderful institution called the Pound Shop making them wonderful value. So go on give them a try.

                    An ok 'everyday' bar of chocolate!

                    Deciding to work my through all the chocolate bars on offer in my local Nisa store of late I decided that I really must try Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit & Nut. I really don't think I've ever tried it before so I was excited about trying it as I do love chocolate of course and I do love fruit.... particularly in chocolate! lol

                    The Packaging....

                    75g foil long packet. I'm told it is Cadbury, Dairy Milk, Fruit & Nut and then beside that there is a chunk of chocolate depicted surrounded by fruit and nuts and a couple of glasses of milk being poured into the chunk of chocolate. Next to the that in large yellow lettering I'm told that there is 8 chunks in my bar (other sizes are available of course). Along the bottom of my packet I'm told '8 individual chunks of happiness to last longer'. On the back of the packet I'm told the ingredients, nutritional information, size is stated, best before is stamped on, contact details for Cadburys are on there and finally there is a bar-code.

                    The Chocolate....

                    Well my bar is in a strip and 8 rather large, thick chunks of choccy in oblongs all inscribed with the word Cadbury on them. The chocolate is a nice brown shiny looking colour and appears smooth. I snap off my chunks as I go along and notice that this is unmessy to do with no flaking and no melting stickiness on my hands.

                    Popping it in the mouth it immediately starts to melt and I give it a chew As I do so it continues to melt thick, creamy sweet chocolate into my mouth and as I do this my first contact with the fruit and nuts which are raisins and almonds. The raisins are plump, fresh and juicy and in abundance. What does please me is that there isn't so much of the nuts (which are almonds) and what there is, is small, easy to chew pieces which don't get stuck in your teeth or try and break them. This wouldn't be so great of course if you really wanted it to be a nutty bar or even fruit and nut. To me this is mainly fruit and that suits me just fine thank you very much!

                    Verdict....

                    A nice thick not too sweet chocolate. Not too many almonds, plenty of juicy raisins this is really nice and not one bit sickly, messy or cheap tasting. No, not my favourite ever bar of chocolate but not one I'd avoid either. I love the fact it's not crammed with any sweeteners so I get no horrible after taste and after 8 nice big chunks I haven't got a harsh aftertaste which is making me want to drink for England. I like it!

                    Ingredients....

                    Milk Chocolate (milk, Sugar, Cocoa Mass, Cocoa Butter, Vegetable Fat, Emulsifiers (E442, E476), Flavourings), Raisins (16%), Almonds (7%)

                    Allergy Advice....

                    May contain traces of wheat and soya.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      A delicious Cadburys chocolate bar with nuts and raisins.

                      -I'M A FRUIT AND NUT CASE-

                      Is there anyone out there who doesn't like this fabulous chocolate bar? Apart from people who are allergic to nuts of course. I adore Cadburys 'Fruit and Nut' bar. It just seems to have two ingredients that I love encased within this one wonderful bar of chocolate. It is my favourite of all the bars on offer and it would always be my first choice when I reach for a chocolate bar. -

                      What is it that makes the Cadburys Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut bar my first choice of them all? Apart from the quality of the Divine Cadburys Dairy Milk chocolate I think it is the combination of the plump raisins and the crisp, crunchy almonds that just seem to work really well together as a taste combination. Wrapped up in the dairy milk chocolate, you have the perfect taste experience as far as I am concerned.-


                      --CADBURYS FRUIT AND NUT--

                      The product that I have is the 230g bar, greedy me, and it is wrapped in a purple shiny foil and red matt wrapper. Upon the front is a large chunk of the fruit and nut chocolate. Out of one side of the chunk an almond is bursting from the chocolate and from the other side a raisin is exposed also and this is exactly what the bar is like. It is 'choc a bloc' full of almonds and raisins. Cadburys don't skimp on them and it is this that makes this bar such an enjoyable taste experience. The GDA's are to the reverse of the packet as are the ingredients and nutritional information.


                      There is a statement by Cadburys that goes like this: "Our 'Cadbury Dairy Milk' is full of beans. Cocoa beans to be precise. And all from one place. Ghana. We believe that Ghanian beans are so delicious that we're happy to pay premium prices for them. We think its worth it to give you that unique Cadbury Dairy Milk taste that we all love so much"...and they are right. You just can't beat the taste of Cadburys Dairy Milk chocolate. It has that silky smooth, creamy taste upon the palate.-


                      --THE CHOCOLATE--

                      The actual chocolate comes in a large slab. It is separated into breakable chunks which are bite-size. The chocolate pieces are thick and it takes a good bite to get through one of these chunks. This is good value chocolate and you certainly get your monies worth with this bar. As you bite through a delicious chunk of the chocolate you will be met by a good size almond which when crunched down with the chocolate it tastes so satisfying a bite. Similarly it is with the raisin within the bar. Chocolate just seems to go really well with raisin and the taste of these two together makes for a really nice taste experience. If you're lucky enough to get both, raisin and nut you've hit the jackpot and you get the 'full on' effect of the Fruit and Nut bar. Of course, most pieces will contain both as this bar is full of both ingredients. So I would say Cadburys Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut bar is the ultimate chocolate fix and a really satisfying chocolate fix it is too. -


                      --INGREDIENTS--

                      Milk Chocolate - Sugar - Cocoa Butter - Cocoa Mass - Vegetable Fat - Emulsifiers (E442, E476) - Flavourings - Dusted Raisins - Almonds - Equivalent of three quarters of a pint of fresh liquid milk in every half pound of milk chocolate. - This product is suitable for Vegetarians.

                      -WARNINGS- Contains NUTS - May contain: Wheat - Soya -.


                      --SUMMARY--

                      I love the flavour of Cadburys chocolate anyway and I doubly love it with the fruit and nut addition. It is a brilliant 'By Appointment' chocolate and I love its creamy stick to the palate texture. This is the ultimate chocolate bar for me and at the moment Tesco is doing the large 230g bar for just £1.00, which is excellent value. Well I am a definite Cadburys Fruit and Nut Case...Are you? -

                        Disadvantages

                        Fruity and nutty delight scrumptious chocolate and bigger bars for me to eat.

                        A glass and a half of milk and fruit which are plump raisins and nuts of the almond variety I am truely spoilt.

                        I as you all know by now am a true choc o holic, and adore Cadburys fruit and nut. I think I may be one of the first fruit and nutters give or take a decade. Nuts me whatever gave me that Idea. That leaves fruity, hmm,
                        that would be telling would'nt it.

                        This is a wonderful bar of chocolate full of good plump raisins and large nutty almonds which of course they are aren't they.
                        Having the usual 1 whole glass and a half of milk in the usually excellent milk chocolate who could go wrong.

                        At the momment the price is a silly £1 for a reasonably large bar aroung 250g in size. I have seen larger bars for £2.50 which are obscene.
                        I would seriously have overload problems on those bars.

                        The wrapper as usual is self explanitary and has quite clear markings saying fruit and nut all over it with the usual chocolate diagram and milk pouring from the glass. Blue background so you cannot miss that its cadburys. The usual ingredients as for the milk bar plus the added bonus of all those fruity bits and nuts.

                        Go on you know you want to! go and spoil yourself and indulge in a little madness.

                        Its too late for me I am already there!

                        Whether you want the smaller modest bar or the largest megga bars they are all out there to please each individual taste.
                        Small individual bars go from 47p and the largest up to £5 approx.
                        You can buy the multi packs of nine small bars too around £1.99 I believe. I go for the 250g bar s at the momment running in at a £1 on special offer lovely.

                          A taste of childhood christmases, and a reason to feel young again!

                          A love affair with cadbury's can only end in...a large bar of fruit and nut!

                          Since my pregnancy sickness has been brought under control by doctors, hospitals and hard core drugs, I have rediscovered my affinity with Cadbury's chocolate and have developed a particular fancy for their fruit and nut bars. Well, I say "I", though what I should really be saying is, "the baby" - that's how it seems to work in pregnancy - we are allowed to fancy the most inconceivably strange food stuffs, and pass the blame soley upon the heads of our unborn child! So the Baby likes chocolate - and all I can say is... like mother like son/daughter!

                          Anyway, for those of you who have not experienced this delightful chocolate bar, let me enlighten you. sinilar in size and shape to a normal cabury's Dairy Milk bar, this one comes with plump, juicy raisins and whole, creamy almonds inside it's thick, sweet chocolate. I love raisins in chocolate, finding that the sweetness and chewyness of them really makes the bar last a whole lot longer, and as nuts are now known as a GI food, meaning they keep you fuller for longer and are full of wonderful fatty acids and oils and such, I see a bar of this once in a while as a form of health food. REALLY!!!

                          For those of you with more of a health concious attitude. this bar contains 240 calories, and 12 gramms of fat (though only 7 of saturated fat which is the one to look out for). The 49g bar I have just consumed came out of a vending machine at work, and as such cost me a whole 50p. I think they're cheaper in the shops, or in multi-packs. They are suitable for vegetarians, though obviously not anyone who has nut allergies.

                          I really enjoy this wee taste of fruity, nutty chocolate, though I restrict myself to the standar bars, as I know a big bar would be devoured in mere hours! If you haven't had one of these since a childhood christmas, then get to the shops and get one. They still taste exactly the same, which is one of the reasons I love them so. They make me feel 10 years old again, and not nearly 33 with a baby on the way!!!!

                          Thankyou for reading, Kate x

                            a great choco bar

                            Cadbury’s Dairy Milk with fruit and nut

                            Like most women of today I love a nice piece of chocolate or two. Well in actual fact I prefer to eat the whole bar! My total favorite chocolate of all time has got to be Cadbury’s fruit and nut bar. The main reason for this being I love nuts and the nuts they use in this bar I would have to say are one of the tastiest I have ever eaten.

                            The Cadburys chocolate is the usual smooth and creamy texture and taste. The chocolate in my view cannot be topped by any other brand. The nuts which they use for this particular bar of chocolate I think are whole almonds and these have a very creamy nutty texture alone and work even better with the smooth chocolaty taste that is Cadbury’s Dairy milk. The fruit they talk of is only small sultanas but these just add to the overall delicious flavor of the chocolate bar.

                            The fact they use whole nut gives the bar a great chunkiness which not a lot of other bars can offer. There are plenty of nuts throughout the whole chocolate bar and this is of course another reason why I like this bar so much, because of the actual amount of nuts that the chocolate encases.

                            Of course like most chocolate bars this one is as well high in calories and should not really be eaten in high volumes (although quite hard to resist). It is of course not at all suitable for people with a nut allergy as this is one of the main ingredients. But apart from these two small factors I believe this chocolate bar is well worth every penny paid for it. The price can vary depending on what size bar that you get. Plus there does always seem to be some sort of special offer on the larger sized bars.

                            The taste is really second to none. Both the smooth seductive flavor of the chocolate and the hardy crunchy taste of the whole almond nuts combine together to create one of the best chocolate bars to eat ever.

                            I love this particular type of chocolate bar from Cadbury’s and I am sure there are millions others out there who feel exactly the same as I do. Long live the nuts!
