As per usual, A few questions sprung to my mind when I was recommended Cadbury Dairy Milk Slices Vanilla Passionfruit and the most pressing of these questions was the use of the word ‘slice’. I thought perhaps these were going to have a different shape or something, but from the packaging it just looks like a normal Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate block with a different flavour inside.
There is a picture of a cross section of one of the chocolate squares showing a layer of vanilla cream and a layer of passionfruit creme, surely that isn’t what it means by slice? Is that it? Don’t get me wrong, it sounds good, but I really don’t think it is a reason to create a new range of products named ‘Slices’.
Anyway that is just a slice of my thoughts on the Cadbury Dairy Milk Slices Vanilla Passionfruit – what a mouthful. Literally. Let’s move on to the opening. I thought it had still been pretty cold of late, but for some reason this had melted a little, no big deal – just want to warn all of you of the possible lower than normal melting point of this particular variation. Smells like chocolate, btw.
Actually slicing into this shows a vastly different construction than that shown on the front of the packaging. The vanilla creme inside each square is just a big bubble and the passionfruit jelly is a bubble within that bubble. It actually looks like a creme egg in there!
I suppose that is a type of layering, not really a slice though. Any way you slice it it is not what I was led to believe by the packaging.
I put all that aside to analyze the most important attribute of this product, the taste:
Chocolate was chocolate, I am sure you all know what Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate tastes like by now, the vanilla creme was a little on the subtle side, but that passionfruit jelly really makes up for it – tastes exactly like passionfruit! Well done. I am calling this a success, tastes like passionfruit with a hint of vanilla that works to blend the flavour into the smooth chocolate.
Slice of heaven – 8/10
