Today's Review: Cadbury Caramel Spread

I tried out the Cadbury Crunchie spread a little while back, and found it very much to my liking. I was eager to pick up the caramel variety as well, but I figured I'd wait for it to go on offer, especially as I have about five jars of previously reviewed spreads that I still haven't finished. Apparently the wait was not long enough, those jars are still in the cupboard, but the caramel spread is finally on offer in Tesco, so I snatched it up. Quite basically, it's a Cadbury spread with both chocolate and caramel in it. Just look at those swirls, lovely. 

I had a slight complaint with the Crunchie version, in that it was a little hard to spread what with all the Crunchie bits mixed in. There's no such issue with the caramel though, it's completely smooth and a wonder to spread on whatever you fancy slapping it on. As for the taste, I really can't fault it. It has chocolate, it has caramel, and it taste pretty much like a melted down Caramel bar, and I guess that's what they were going for. There's not particularly a prominent element here, just a great combination of chocolate and caramel flavours that make for a smooth, sweet spread. I've been finding all kinds of excuses to spread this stuff on things and shove them in my face. It's quite unhealthy really, but it's a testament to how good this stuff is. Keep bringing out these spreads, guys, and by that I mean do a Wispa one already.

My rating: 5/5


  1. I am surprised this spread has been passed by health officials as it is full of sugar and only encourages children, in particular to love it instead of healthy foods like Peanut butter. Don't you realise we have a world wide health dilemma of obesity and diabetes because of foods like this? I nurse children and the huge increase of diabetes in our country is alarming. THink again Cadbury

    1. I agree, it is full of sugar, but I don't see how it particularly encourages children. One of my kids likes to eat chocolate spread, and I give it to him in moderation, he doesn't suffer from diabetes or obesity. I don't think Cadbury are to blame for making people diabetic, I'm sure the vast majority of people are able to stop themselves constantly consuming sugar.
