Regular readers will know that choc-orange is my favourite flavour combination when it comes to just about anything sweet, however we don’t see a huge amount of it in Australian confectionery and it’s more common as a “limited edition” in the UK.
I’m not a big fan of Australian Cadbury Dairy Milk – I prefer dark chocolate to milk, and milk chocolate of higher quality – but I was still excited to bump into this in my local Woolies today, and there was no way I was leaving without buying…let’s say “some” bars. Each 200g block cost $3.50.
It’s “normal” Cadbury Dairy Milk with orange bits added – those paying attention to the label would have noticed the “chocolate orange flavoured mini drops” and “orange flavoured chips”. It’s an accurate description, and I have to say I was impressed. The “drops” are like little Jaffas, and the “chips” sugary, orange candy. Although I’m not a big fan of the Dairy Milk, I think the orange add-ins need a sweet chocolate surrounding them, this would be a very different experience with darker chocolate. The overall experience is rather sweet but…oh well.
I’m not sure whether I’ll be buying any more of this, but I can guarantee that the bar(s) in my fridge won’t end up in the bin. If you like chocolate orange, I recommend you buy some of this before it disappears.
