Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit & Nut

The combination of fruit and nuts is really cool, as there are crispy as well as chewy ingredients in there, mixed up with melting chocolate. I had high expectations as the “Full Of Plenty” bar I tried a while ago was purely awesome!

I like the wrapper: It comes in the usual Cadbury purple with part of it in wine red. It is slightly shiny and has “Dairy Milk” written all across the bar. The Cadbury logo is on the left in a dim golden color. Its scent is really milky with a glimpse of nut in it. The milk chocolate crumbles easily, but I did not expect anything different from a Cadbury chocolate treat. You can see the huge embedded nuts on the back of the bar.

The chocolate is, as expected from a “dairy milk” really rich of milk. Milk is also the main ingredient in the chocolate, the sugar comes only after it. Still, it is really sweet, but the milk dominates the entire bar. If you are a fan of milky light chocolate, you will like this chocolate.

I have mixed feelings about the almonds in the bar: Some of them were really delicious with a great amount of crunch and a nutty, not too dry experience. But others tasted kind of dry, and anything but tempting. Of course one cannot predict how a nut tastes, but anyway… This kind of thing rarely happens to high quality chocolate treats…

The fruit inside the bar are plain dusted raisins; and actually, I don’t like raisins a lot. Though, they are alright and covered by the strong and sweet milk chocolate taste of the bar. They still add a nice amount of fruit to the bar. They are chewy but smooth at the same time and remind me of jelly. A real plus is that they don’t taste dry at all.

The amount of nuts and raisins is alright, though there are some places without any filling. This is nice if you like parts with plain chocolate to let it melt in your mouth and enjoy pieces of your chocolate which is really rich of milk. It gives you a rest from chewing and provides a more versatile texture. I like the fact that the bar is neither crowded, nor under-filled with almonds and raisins.

Personally, I do not think Cadbury produces the best products out there, but some are really worth trying; especially the dairy and their more recent inventions!
