Here's another interesting variation I've picked up in Oman, it's a Marvellous Creations bar that hasn't reared its head in the UK. It seems to originate from South Africa, but it's made its way a bit further east. This is Cookie Gummy Crunch, which seems to be a crossover of the Cookie But Crunch and Jelly Popping Candy, it's basically Dairy Milk chocolate embedded with cookie pieces and jelly bits. I certainly wasn't a fan of the jelly in the Popping Candy variety, so I wasn't expecting big things here, but I had to give it a go.
The Dairy Milk is obviously as good as ever, nice and creamy. The cookie pieces are pretty crunchy and satisfying, a nice bit of texture and flavour throughout the chocolate. Unfortunately there's just not enough cookie to win out over those damn jelly pieces. There are loads of them, and they're very chewy, and pack quite a lot of an overly sweet flavour. What's more, they hang around for a lot longer than the chocolate and cookie last, so by the end I was left with a mouthful of chewy jelly that wasn't great. It may be a combination of two flavours, but it's probably the worst aspects of the two flavours. The cookie and chocolate are nice, but the jelly just isn't great.
My rating: 2/5
