Cadbury Marvellous Mix-Ups Banana Sour Fudge Dessert - Review


Cadbury are churning out a lot of odd flavour combinations recently...first they did a Cherry Cola Fizz dessert and now this - Banana Sour Fudge! I have to wonder if anyone actually likes these odd flavours they keep bringing out; sure, they're interesting and novel, but the novelty must wear off eventually. I guess that's why they're just limited editions...


This dessert is described as "Smooth & creamy dessert made with melted Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate with a side of milk chocolate coated butter candy, banana flavour candied fudge pieces & raspberry flavour sour candy balls". A weird mis-mash of flavours if ever there was one! So how did it taste...?


Well, firstly the chocolate dessert itself was very nice, it's pretty much the same as Dairy Milk Pots of Joy and the smoothness and creaminess is very welcoming. Adding the goodies and mixing them in produced an interesting taste sensation...lots of artificial fruit flavours; sourness from the raspberry, artificial banana flavour, a little butteriness from the fudge and butter candy, and some crunchy textures going on too. It really is a party in your mouth...and quite a fun one, but not something I would want to eat regularly.

Overall, this is definitely an interesting combination from Cadbury, and kudos to them for trying something so out there. If you're a fan of banana I wouldn't rush to try this but if you like mad combinations this is definitely for you. Now, if only they would actually do something with peanut butter in...everyone is waiting, Cadbury!

  1. I don't know... this just sounds horrible! I think the sour elements would put me off trying it.

    A peanut butter dessert from Cadbury would be amazing!

    1. I think we need some kind of petition for a peanut butter dessert!

    2. We definitely do! Or at least a peanut butter Dairy Milk bar, and not some Marvellous Creations one where they spoil it by adding something weird!

  2. At first I was very "eurgh", but your review makes me think it might actually be nice. I'm one of the people who actually likes a lot of these weird flavors, haha - for instance I bought the Cherry Cola Fizz pots a couple of times. Cherry & chocolate is a nice & sort of otherwise rare combination, what can I say!

    I'll have to give these a go when I find them. By the way, totally agreed on peanut butter.

    1. I hope Cadbury's are reading...there's clearly a market for something peanut butter based yet they keep churning out these sour/sweet combinations instead..
