Cadbury Darkmilk Salted Caramel

Cadbury Darkmilk Salted Caramel

I was pleasantly surprised by the new Cadbury Darkmilk bar when I reviewed it last year - it's both sweet and creamy whilst retaining the richness of a darker chocolate - so I was very excited to try this Salted Caramel version when it launched recently.

It contains crunchy salted caramel pieces with 40% cocoa milk chocolate, and can be found in the likes of WH Smiths currently for around £1 or so. It also contains real sea salt, none of your regular pedestrian salt!

I ate it on the go, as I often have to, and it has the same square style block design as the Original version. I much prefer it over the curvy shaped blocks that Cadbury introduced to Dairy Milk bars.

Taste wise, the caramel chips are a bit like pieces of Daim, although of course more salty and without the almond bits in. They definitely make for an interesting flavour combined with the Darkmilk chocolate, but in all honesty I don't think the combination quite works somehow. I think it's the saltiness - sweet and salt work together well but with richer chocolate, not so much. I think either a regular sweet caramel or even just regular Daim pieces would have been a better option. But alas, salted caramel is the "on trend" flavour of the moment I guess.

Overall then, this is a pretty decent variation, but it's not one I would go out of my way for again - I prefer the Original. It'd be interesting to see a filled bar of Darkmilk - maybe with some kind of crème or caramel filling?

Contains milk, butter, soya. May contain nuts. 

7.5/10.

  1. Got a bar of this waiting in the fridge for me, just as soon as I can finish off the Milka with Daim I picked up cheap from B&M. Should make an interesting comparison.

    1. Let me know which you prefer! You really can't beat Milka with Daim IMO. So much better than the Dairy Milk with Daim.

    2. Well it's nice, I do like it. And if it's on offer (or if i'm feeling extravagant) then I would buy it again. But i'm not sure I prefer it to the Milka with Daim. That might sound like sacrilege to some, but at 79p a bar (in B&M) the Milka with Daim is damn hard to beat.

    1. Yes its oddly difficult to find! Now they've launched a smaller bar I think it'll become more available. WH Smith seems to be the main place for it currently.
