A couple of weeks ago I reviewed the new Cadbury Medley Bars now Cadbury have made their bars into the Hulk of chocolate bars with their 3 new Cadbury Big Taste numbers. We have Oreo Crunch, Toffee Whole Nut and Triple Choc Sensation. I don’t quite understand their logic in making the Oreo version thicker and bigger it’s just the same bar guys, at least with the other two Cadbury have loosely thought outside the box. Anyway they have been out for 2 weeks or so and have only just filtered down to my neck of the woods so today’s review is the Cadbury Big Taste Triple Choc Sensation.
This bar is a whopping 26cm long, 9.5cm in width, and 300g in weight and this reflects in the hefty price of £3 per bar. Yes ladies and gents £3 for a bar from your average jo chocolate bar company.
Three chunky layers of Cadbury Dairy Milk, White Chocolate (42%) and Dark Chocolate (25%)
Aesthetically it is rather appealing, I like the three varying levels of chocolate and all were identical to one another. The predominant and instant flavour is the milk chocolate. It’s typical Dairy Milk, creamy and not quite to quality of its foreign compadres. If you do the math it is actually made mostly of white chocolate rather than milk chocolate which is rather surprising. The only thing the white chocolate brings to this table is extra creaminess, which isn’t a bad thing, however close your eyes and you will not be able to distinguish white chocolate in taste alone. The Dark Chocolate is the only layer you can taste separately. It has that slight bitterness but resembles more of plain bitter chocolate you get from a £1 advent calendar than a dark decadent chocolate I expected. Put it together with the other two layers and it improves and works well but it is the lingering flavour you are left with at then end.
As a whole this Cadbury Big Taste bar is nice. It’s creamy and it’s chocolate upon chocolate upon chocolate, and there is nothing wrong with that, a chocoholic will revel in it. However I beg to question why they have not ceased the opportunity to merge three of their bars together? You have Cadbury Dairy Milk, Cadbury Dream and Cadbury Bournville, have they forgotten this, why oh why have they not whacked those three together to make one super bar? That is something I would pay to see.

Such a valid point Nibs, I’d certainly buy it if it was an amalgamation of dream, DM, and Bourneville! Cadbury I hope you’re listening…
Thanks Amy. You really would have thought it wasn’t rocket science but clearly Cadbury have majorly overlooked this. Opportunity missed right there. xx
Ahh I’m so glad I didn’t bother buying this one, I nearly did but the toffee nut one tempted me more 🙂
Good choice Kevvie, this one really wasn’t worth the £3! x
Thank you Sophie 🙂 x
