Cadbury Dairy Milk Winter Wonderland: Tree-shaped Milk & White Chocolate Bar Review

New limited edition white and milk chocolate Dairy Milk bar for Christmas with tree shaped chunks

As well as the new "Dairy Milk Snowy Delight", I was pleased to find this limited edition Dairy Milk Winter Wonderland bar in Tesco recently. It's one of the few Christmas products I've been truly excited about and that's only because of the unique tree-shaped blocks! They look fanatstic; I don't think I've ever seen a chocolate bar that looks quite this cool before!

The blocks break off fairly easily and cleanly, which is quite a feat considering their unique shape. They can be split into diagonal rows:

 ...or individual chunks:

 ...or even three-chunk triangles!

The bar comprises mostly of Dairy Milk, with the white pieces containing a layer of white on top of milk chocolate. The white chocolate amounts to 12% of the bar in total.

The chocolate tasted delicious; it was exactly as you'd expect from Dairy Milk, but with an extra hit of creaminess from the white chocolate. The flavours blended together perfectly for a creamy, sweet treat.

It reminded me of the somewhat similar Milka Happy Cows, which also contains white on milk chocolate, however I think this bar is far superior thanks to the tree-shaped chunks!

Overall, this is a fantastic limited edition from Cadbury and one I really can't fault. The tree-shaped chunks are a unique idea and really festive - they'd make a great decoration for cookies, cupcakes...or even mince pies!

Price: £1.40 for a 100g bar at Tesco. Also spotted for £1 at Sainsbury's and The Co-Op.
Suitable for vegetarians?: Yes.
Allergy Information: Contains milk and soya. May contain nuts and wheat.
Nutrition Information (per quarter of bar): 133 Calories, 7.7g Fat (4.8g Saturates), 14g Carbohydrates (14g Sugars).

RATING: 9 out of 10.

*Apologies for the overload of photos...I thought this bar looked so nice it really deserved showing off!

  1. I can really picture this decorating so many baked goods this Christmas, a very good idea on Cadbury's part!

  3. Yum! I can't wait to try this - I can imagine getting through quite a lot of bars this Christmas as I will no longer be purchasing Cadburys Roses due to the introduction of coffee cremes...ughhh.

  4. I really didn't like this particular product. I must admit that Cadbury have excelled themselves with the rather lovely Christmas Tree design, but the bar itself tasted bland and was uninspiring taste wise.
