A new Dairy Milk variety is out, and true to formula Cadbury's have rebranded one of their existing European Milka bars as Dairy Milk. This one is based on Milka Peanut Caramel, and contains "Dairy Milk chocolate filled with peanuts, caramel and a peanut filling, with chopped peanuts and rice crisps". It's currently available from Sainsbury's for £3 per 278g slab, although should be in other supermarkets soon.
I was extremely excited to find this; I'm a big fan of all things peanut and peanut butter so I was expecting a peanut overload with all the peanutty ingredients crammed in. And for once, it was every bit as tasty as I'd hoped!
The bar is just as sweet and sickly as Big Taste Toffee Whole Nut, but a lot more moreish thanks to the savoury flavour of the peanuts. I couldn't stop scoffing it!
The peanut filling, crunchy rice pieces, caramel and peanuts all combine together to create something very indulgent...crunchy, creamy, crispy, sweet and savoury all at once. Despite it not being labeled as peanut butter, I couldn't help but feel this tasted more peanut buttery than some other so-called peanut butter products on the market! It doesn't skimp on the peanuts at all, which makes for a refreshing change.
If I were to buy any of the Cadbury Big Taste Bars regularly, this one would definitely be it. (let's just forget the pointless Triple Choc Sensation variety altogether!) I really hope it sticks around; if you're a fan of peanut butter chocolates I would recommend seeking out a bar...immediately!
Suitable for vegetarians.
