Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramello (Irish) Review
Some time ago a blog reader requested that I review the Irish Dairy Milk Caramello, and since it apparently tastes nicer than our UK Dairy Milk Caramel I just had to give it a go.
I managed to find a bar from Morrisons for around 95p - not cheap for a small bar, but if the chocolate tastes good who cares? It comes in 8 small blocks that are somewhat square shaped, but not quite. It certainly looked better than the silly "curve shaped" blocks that Cadbury/Mondelez have introduced to UK Dairy Milk bars!
It also smelled somewhat different to UK Dairy Milk...somewhat richer and more chocolatey and creamy - like the Dairy Milk we all used to love before Mondelez tampered with the recipe! (They claim they haven't changed it, but it seems different to me...perhaps they're using a different milk supplier now?) Breaking off a piece, the caramel oozed out and had a lovely aroma. And it tasted gorgeous...a little more sticky than the UK version, but a lot more flavoursome - it was kind of buttery with a slight butterscotch taste. Combined with the creamy Dairy milk it was a match made in heaven.
Overall, I have to say this Irish Dairy Milk Caramello is definitely superior to the UK version. The chocolate recipe tastes different, like the old Dairy Milk we used to get in the UK, and this alone makes it worth a buy in my opinion. It costs more but it's worth it!
RATING: 8.5 out of 10.
