Review: Cadbury Hazelnut
Posted: 17 January 2011
It was with great eagerness I ripped open this bar, in perfect condition. Mmmmmm. Adequate hazelnut content, milk chocolate rich enough, and a sense of Canadian egalitarian fair taste

Toyboy Troy's generosity
continued. After sampling the very medicore
Burnt Almond Dark I
moved onto this 100 gram bar of the Canadian hazelnut.
On two prior occasions, I'd
tried some version of Canadian Cadbury's Dairy Milk.
On the first occasion, the bar arrived melted from
Singapore. I froze it but it still didn't taste all
that great. On the second occasion, a Canadian bearer
brought a fruit & nut bar. I'm not fond of raisins in
my bar, and this detracted from the overall experience.
Toyboy Troy knew I preferred
nuts, not fruit & nuts. It was with great eagerness I
ripped open this bar, in perfect condition. Mmmmmm.
Adequate hazelnut content, milk chocolate rich enough, and a
sense of Canadian egalitarian fair taste. Since I
estimated Canadian Cadbury's dark bar to have only 39% cocoa
solids, this 24% estimate of the milk may be on the high
side. I went with this estimate because respectable
Whittaker's from New Zealand utilizes a 24% blend in
some of their own milk-but blends, and the resultant flavor
doesn't taste like toned down chocolate.
I was actually very
impressed. I do relish a good Cadbury nut bar from
Australia. This was at least as good, perhaps in some
ways better. The Canadian Cadbury milk bars aren't as
sweet as those Down Under.
It's amazing the changes an
international border can bring. Cross from the U.S.
into Canada and the signs change into kilometers, the
prices go up, and the Cadbury bars get better . . . much
better. The roast almond (US) bar I sampled may have
had 5 almonds in it and the chocolate was loamy. Go
north in North America, my friends, if you want Cadbury at
