I always feel that we are so deprived of peanut butter offerings in the UK; we are starting to see some improvements in the ice cream department; however when it comes to chocolate...well it's still pretty meek, especially on the mainstream scale.
I was fortunate enough to get given this Dairy Milk Peanut Butter Pretzel bar as a gift however; this bar is apparently available on the Canadian market...those lucky Canadians! My gift giver picked it up from Cyber Candy though.
So let's get down to it, what was it like?! Well, it was pretty darn good! Quite often the Dairy Milk from other countries tastes slightly different, almost 'off'. However this is not the case here; I was met with the same usual creamy, sweet offering, but on this instance it was also filled with a gorgeously smooth, rich peanut butter truffle filling and salty/savoury crunchy pretzel pieces. Utter heaven.
The peanut butter flavour is the perfect, not too strong where it taste artificial but not so weak that you can barely tell it's even there..when I buy something with peanut butter in I want it to taste of it! I'm not usually a huge fan of pretzels but in this bar they actually work really well; they're not too obtrusive but just provide a nice crunchy counterpart to the creamy peanut butter truffle.
Munched and crunched or sucked slowly allowing it to melt; either way you eat this bar you end up with pretty much the same result - this is one delicious bar. Now we can just hope that Cadbury's will hear our pleas and bring some delicious peanut butter chocolate to us over here in the U.K.
Taste - 8.5/10 - Everything I could hope for in a peanut butter chocolate bar.
Texture - 8.3/10 - Smooth and creamy with lovely little nibbly pretzel pieces.
Appearance - 7/10 - Standard Cadbury's chocolate bar really.
Price - 5.2/10 - Unfortunately due it being an import the price is a lot more expensive compared to what you would usually pay for Cadbury's, £4.26 is pretty expensive! Even more reason why this needs to be brought to the UK where I'm sure it would sell for a more reasonable price!
Overall - 7.3/10 - A delicious bar, if only it were at a more reasonable price.
Peanut butter lovers!
WHERE TO BUY?
Residents of Canada I'm sure you'll be able to find this in local stores!! For everyone else Cyber Candy here.
