Cadbury Hazelnut 
Posted: 17 January 2011    7.0 
Cadbury Hazelnut 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    
Avg price/gram: USD 0.025   Cocoa %: 24*  Size: 100g  Canada chocolate 
       


* Estimated Cocoa Solid Content

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 its finest.
