Cadbury's Brunch Bar Raisin
Advantages: Quick and easy breakfast when time is limited
Disadvantages: Expensive and not very filling
I drive quite a long distance to work each day and as a result don't normally feel like eating breakfast so early in the morning. When I eventually get to work I am starving and need something quick and easy to fend off those hunger pains.
I have recently discovered that Cadbury produces a handy brunch bar that comes in both raisin and hazelnut flavours. My favourite flavour is the raisin bar which forms the basis of my opinions in this review. The bars are made using a mixture of oats, bran flakes, raisins, crispies and honey which are all bound together with a layer of Cadbury's milk chocolate - delicious!
The packaging is fairly small as each box only contains 6 x 35g individually wrapped bars. The box is a perfect size for keeping in my desk drawer at work for when I get the mid morning munchies.
The design of the packaging is fairly simple with a mixture of product shots designed to illustrate the flap jack texture of the bars. The top and sides of the box incorporate the famous dark purple so that you can easily identify it on the shelf as being a Cadbury product.
The texture of the bars is quite incredible as there is a slight crunch as you bite into the bar but as the chocolate slowly melts, the mixture turns to a gooey delight in your mouth. I have to admit that I find the taste of the bars rather plain but this is lifted by the sweetness of the chocolate.
I find that the bars are very moorish and one bar never seems to be enough. This is probably compounded by the size of the bar as I can normally eat a single bar in three bites!
Each bar contains the following nutritional values:
Energy (630 kj)
Of which saturates (2.8g)
Salt equivalent (0.2g)
The bars may not be suitable for everybody as the wrappers clearly state that the bars may contain sesame seeds and traces of peanut, nuts and egg.
The bars are not cheap when you consider that a pack of 6 bars currently costs £1.70 from Tesco. To put this is perspective, a 500g box of Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Cornflakes costs only 55p more at £2.25 and will probably last longer. As with everything in life, you pay a premium for convenience.
* Vey convenient to eat on the move
* Small packaging to store in your draw at work
* Nice snack for anytime of the day
* Relatively expensive
* Not that good for you when compared to a breakfast cereal
* Small size so you have to eat more bars to feel full
These bars work for me and I would recommend a try. Perhaps I should try getting up a bit earlier and making a bowl of cereal once I get into the office instead... yeah right!
Thanks for taking the time to read my review.
Summary: Would recommend trying a pack!
