REVIEW! Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations

Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations

These Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations bars have already been out in Australia for a little while so when I heard that they were coming to the UK I was extremely excited! Mr Review Addict found these bars for me in Londis.

The bars are regular Dairy Milk but they are not the usual Dairy Milk rectangular chunks; the sections are quite randomly shaped and textured which makes for an interesting looking bar.

Jelly Popping Candy Shells
First up is Jelly Popping Candy Shells. This was the bar that I was most excited about and that is because it contains as the name suggests: fruit flavoured jellies, sugar coated candies and popping candy. A 47g bar will set you back 235 calories.

I was a little disappointed that this bar did not contain more of the extras. The jellies and sugar coated candies were quite sparse and actually of the 5 pieces of the bar, only 2 bits had them in. However the popping candy was better distributed throughout the bar. I've read lots of reviews of this bar and I was surprised to find that this was the case because the photos that I have seen on other blogs make this bar look jam-packed. If you look at the photo of my bar above, you wouldn't even know that it contained anything extra so maybe I got a duff one?  Here is a photo of one of the 2 chunks that did contain some jellies and candies...

Taste-wise, despite the poor distrubtion, I throughly enjoyed the fruity flavour of the jellies and I loved the craziness of chocolate with chewy, crunchy and popping bits all at once.

Cookie Nut Crunch
Cookie Nut Crunch is not quite as exciting sounding in my opinion, but does still have some nice additions. It contains biscuits, crunchy almond caramel and chopped, roasted caramelised hazelnuts. It also has slightly more calories at 245 for a 47g bar.

The fillings were more consistently distributed in this bar and added a lovely crunchy texture to the smooth creamy Dairy Milk. I liked the nutty flavour and the hint of caramel and the biscuit was delicious as it was similar to shortbread.

Although it's not a hugely exciting bar compared to it's partner in the Marvellous Creations range, Cookie Nut Crunch is fantastic and I will definitely be buying it again. As for Jelly Popping Candy Shells, I loved the flavours and the mash up of textures. This would have been my favourite; but I have to mark based on what I sampled and the lack of consistency across the whole bar let it down a bit. I will have to try it again and see if the distribution is better next time.
