As a child Cadbury's Dream bar used to be one of my favourite chocolates to tuck into; back when I had a major sweet tooth I used to love buying the large thick blocks of it to tuck into with my family; however now these are hard to come buy and (rarely) you can only find the thinner, flimsy Dream bars, in fact it seems that on the white chocolate front Cadbury's don't offer all that much.
I was pleasantly surprised then when I found out that Cadbury's had launched a white/milk chocolate Winter Wonderland bar to celebrate the festive season. Instead of the standard cube format this bar is divided into blocks of Christmas trees, you can have great fun snapping various different shapes off and this is definitely great for sharing (if you're feeling kind).
However I was slightly disappointed when I snapped a piece of; I was expecting that the white treet would be solid white chocolate, as suggested on the packaging, instead they are simply the classic Cadbury's Dairy Milk milk chocolate coated with a thin layer of white chocolate.
There is a slightly sweeter, creamy white chocolate flavour to these trees, but nothing major.
The Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate is just the same as other bar you will find; although along with others I felt that this seemed a lot sweeter than it has been in the past!
This bar is still a great thing to have in the cupboard over Christmas, especially if you're a sucker for limited edition/novelty products like me and I'm sure it would look great put out on a buffet in little tree chocolate shapes. If Cadbury's make this product next year though I would love to see the incorporation of SOLID white chocolate trees - personally I think this would take this bar to the next level.
