As you may have recalled me mentioning the Jelly Popping Candy Shells is not theonly new bar that Cadbury's have launched recently, and here we have the review of its alter ego - Cookie Nut Crunch!
Consisting of Dairy Milk chocolate with pieces of biscuit, crunchy almond caramel & roasted caramelised hazelnuts. Yum! Although definitely more conventional than the Jelly Popping Candy Shells Bar it is by no means boring and the flavour combinations work perfectly.
Unlike the Jelly Popping Candy Shells there is no scrimping on add ins here; you can see from the back of the bar that this is "choc full" of great big biscuit pieces and there's a nice dispersion of the crunchy almond caramel & hazelnuts, that are a nice surprise when you come across them within the bar.
The cookie biscuit pieces reminded me of Cookie Crisp cereal and when you take a look at the inside of the bar they actually look quite similar; they are delightfully crunchy and offer a nice texture contrast in the bar.
The Dairy Milk is the usual, creamy, sweet, milky combination that just hits the spot for satisfying your sweet tooth and again the format of the bar is the slightly more sporadic mix n match triangular shaped cubes that work really well with the add ins chosen.
Out of the 2 new Marvellous Creations bars launched by Cadbury's this is certainly my favourite and one that I could actually see myself going out and buying; great texture contrast, great flavour and overall a delicious new addition to the Cadbury's range.
Taste - 8.6/10 - Delicious, nice mixture between nut, biscuit and chocolate.
Texture - 8.8/10 - Crunchy biscuits and almond caramel with lovely little hazelnut pieces against smooth Dairy Milk chocolate.
Appearance - 8/10 - Looks really good and taking a glimpse at the back of the bar you can see how full it is of goodies.
Price - 7.6/10 -I presume these
are going to be priced in line with Cadbury's other larger bars,
therefore probably around £2. A price I would certainly be happy to pay.
Overall - 8.3/10 - A great success!
WHO FOR?I think that adults will prefer this bar as opposed to children who may opt for the Jelly Popping Candy Shells bar more; however that's not to say they won't still enjoy it.
WHERE TO BUY?I presume you'll be able to pick this up at all major supermarkets/stores soon.
