I got it! I finally got it! I have seen this chocolate bar reviewed on many blogs, but this bar had eluded me, being only available at certain supermarkets outside of my walking range (I should probably learn to drive). Thankfully, my wonderful fianceé went to Morrisons yesterday and found it for me. Such is love.
Yes, this is the latest entry in the "Marvellous Creations" range, an assortment of chocolate bars whose weird and wonderful contents seem to be chosen in the same manner as the jokes in Family Guy. Cola Pretzel Honeycomb flavour boasts good old Dairy Milk chocolate, stuffed with "chewy cola nuggets" (sounds delicious...) and pretzel and honeycomb pieces. That's a lot to fit in a chocolate bar, and it certainly seems an odd combination of flavours. But, as they say, don't knock it 'til you've tried it.
As you can see, the bar is loaded with sizeable chunks, and retains the "crazy paving" look of the other Marvellous Creations bars, which means it's more difficult to separate into sections for appropriate calorie counting. Ha, just kidding, I know you're going to eat it all in one go.
I had high hopes for this bar, and I'm pleased to say that Cadbury have pulled it off again. I was mostly unsure about the cola pieces, because honeycomb and pretzel are already tried and tested ingredients. While the cola certainly isn't the most prominent flavour, there is just enough to add a nice kick to the regular old ingredients, and the chewiness is great in combination with the crunchy pretzel pieces. This bar is an all in one smooth, chewy, crunchy, salty, sweet experience. It may not be available in many places, but it's definitely worth the wait.
My rating: 5/5
