Cadbury BrunchBar chocolate chip

I don’t think the look of this bar is very tempting. Compared to a German corn bar this thing surely looks lousy. Small and semi-finished.  Everything but the top is covered with a thin milk chocolate layer, on the top you can see the cereals kept together with honey, plus some chocolate chips. The chocolate chips aren’t very balanced, one site is well covered with chocolate chips and the other is almost empty. I think the definition on the wrapper that says ‘half covered with milk chocolate’ is a little misleading if you don’t take a closer look at the picture on the wrapper. You’d probably have expected more chocolate (as I did!).

It smells like sweet Cadbury milk chocolate mixed up with honey and the aroma of cereals; the milk chocolate dominates the thing.

Like I expected, the taste of the bar is dominated by the cereals. The chocolate coating and the honey keep the BrunchBar from getting too dry and give it a comfortable sweet taste. Sometimes the honey, and at other times the chocolate is a little stronger, depending on how many chocolate chips are on the top. I see and taste that there are different cereals in there, but I am not really able to distinguish them, as they are all mixed up. What confuses me a little is that oats and bran flakes are just the same ingredient in Germany. The texture is smooth and sticky; the bar is easy to break into pieces. Still, the bar remains very chewy and also a little crispy. Nice!

For a cereal bar I find it really tasty. It is not as chocolaty as some German versions, and it is a little drier, but still not too dry. Still, cereal bars are not really candy, I believe! What do you think?

Oh, and to add one final note: Somehow the pictures I’ve taken look way better than the product did!
