Cadbury Pep - Canadian Peppermint Patty Review
When The Canada Shop got in touch with me to review some snacks from their site recently I jumped at the chance. I've always viewed Canadian snacks longingly online but rarely bought any as they're so hard to find in the UK...so I was very excited!
One of the snacks I was sent was this Cadbury Pep, a round of peppermint fondant patty coated in milk chocolate. I've never seen this product before from Cadbury so it was a completely new one on me! And considering Cadbury in the UK don't currently make any minty chocolate bars this seemed very novel indeed.
It's basically a large, thick round of After Eight-style fondant coated with milk chocolate rather than dark chocolate, and is very tasty! It had a creamy peppermint flavour that wasn't too overwpowering, and surprisingly the level of sweetness was just about right. I don't know how they managed it but this was nowhere near as sickly sweet as I had expected it to be. That said, it's probably best to share one with a friend just out of generosity!
Overall, Cadbury Pep is a surprisingly tasty snack which I would recommend to anyone who likes After Eights or Kendal Mint Cakes.
Cadbury Pep is available from The Canadian Store HERE along with many other Canadian snacks goodies!
