I remember seeing this bar quite a while ago on Cyber Candy's website and being intrigued about it. Cake batter is one of those flavours that I want to love in products - actual cake batter gives me wonderful memories of eating it out of the mixing bowl as a child; that delicious flavour that was always so much better than the actual cake. However I have yet to find a product that can replicate and deliver that same flavour and feelings of nostalgia.
I'm not sure who actually produces this bar - I think it may actually be Cyber Candy themselves. Living in London now it meant that I was able to pick a bar up from their shop and couldn't wait to try it. The bar itself is white chocolate flavoured of "cake batter" complete with popping candy and multicolored sprinkles. Due to the warm weather the bar had softened quite a bit when I went to eat it.
Popping a chunk in my mouth I can't say there was an overwhelming flavour of cake batter, I mean it's kind of there as the chocolate melts a bit but its not prominent...it's kind of just like a bog standard sweet white chocolate with the tiniest hint of cake batter...and the popping candy, well in this bar I found it pretty irritating.
I don't seen how popping candy ends up having something to do with cake batter anyway - I presume it was just added to make the bar more "fun" and "interesting" but I found it actually detracted from the experience, as your chocolate melts in your mouth you have the obtrusive hard crunchy pieces of multicolored strands and then an explosion going on in your mouth from the popping candy...and you don't even get a great flavour of cake batter!!
Pretty disappointing, I continue my search for a good cake batter flavoured product.
Taste - 3.9/10 - Not particularly cake batter-esque.
Texture - 3.6/10 - Popping candy flying everywhere, multicolored sugar strands obtrusive in the mouth.
Appearance - 5/10 - The bar itself doesn't look anything special, the multicolored strands could have been a bit more prominent.
Price - 6.2/10 - At £2.99 it's not ridiculously priced and would be a good small present to get someone if you think they would like something a bit different.
Overall - 4.7/10 - Very disappointing.
I can imagine this would probably go down well with kids.
