Today's Review: Cadbury Marvellous Creations: Jelly Popping Candy

Yay, a new Cadbury bar that isn't just the same bar with a different shape. Plus it looks like they're trying some bold moves too. These Marvellous Creations bars seem to involve shoving a bunch of random stuff into chocolate, and I'm certainly all for that. In this bar there is a generous smattering of jelly sweets, which are themselves full of popping candy. Crazy. So all at once we have the smooth, creamy chocolate, the chewy jelly, and the slightly crunchy and tongue tingling popping candy.

The sad thing is they don't all fit together too nicely. Each element by itself is awesome, even chocolate and popping candy together is very nice, but there's something about mixing the jelly and the chocolate that doesn't sit right with me. Partly the difference in consistency, but mostly due to the flavour. You start off with the very distinct creamy taste of Dairy Milk, but once you start chewing the jelly shells, the flavour gets intense very fast, and ends up overpowering the chocolate itself. Then, as the chocolate fades away, you're left with a lump of very sickly, chewy jelly, which didn't round off my experience all too well. I think I'll go with the more conservative sounding Cookie Nut Crunch next time, this was just a bit too mish-mashy for me.

My rating: 2/5
