It’s new and I am flabbergasted that I have already found the Cadbury Dairy Milk Peanut Butter Oreo. Cadbury have released two new Dairy Milk flavours – Peanut Butter Oreo and Mint Oreo in order to charm young adults. Why this is the way to a young adults heart I do not know, please enlighten me if you do, however it has certainly captured my attention.
I found this 120g bar in my local Sainsbury’s supermarket for £1.00. Let’s not beat around the bush the UK Peanut Butter Oreos were shockingly bad, namely as there wasn’t even a hint of peanut butter in them. That said I am hoping for a blooming miracle here with Cadbury in that this new bar will be the stuff dreams are made of.
Milk chocolate with peanut butter flavour filling and biscuit pieces. Per 3 chunks: 84 kcal, 3g sat fat, 7.3g sugar, 0.9g protein.
From first whiff I got a random smell of peanut butter mixed with coffee, most bizarre indeed and these chunks looked a little on the smaller side than normal. Despite the very beige filling the biscuity pieces made it far prettier. Going in for the kill the bar consisted of smooth silky milk chocolate, a thick creamy filling with the addition of chunky Oreo pieces making the texture on point. This tasted far more like peanut butter than the UK Oreos however had more of an earthy synthetic kind of peanut butter taste than the light and fresh flavour that it could have been. I could still detect an element of coffee undertones which is not at all desirable and I am not sure if it is just the earthiness of the filling or not, either way no chocolate bar should taste earthy.
Sadly the Cadbury Dairy Milk Peanut Butter Oreo has met my expectations of being naff. The smell is questionable and the taste is off putting, the only decent thing being the texture and ratios are spot on. Peanut butter, Oreo, and chocolate lovers give this one a swerve.
