Dairy Milk "Mint"


This was one of those bars that I saw and thought, "Wow, I've liked chocolate mint bars in the past. Maybe I should try this one." Then I figured that maybe it would be like all the rest, so I decided against it and next thing I knew I couldn't find it anywhere. Then a friend of mine told me how much she loved this bar and she got me one, so I guess a review is in order (Thanks Mathilda). It’s nice to have friends that understand you.

I'm not sure why mint and chocolate go together so well; it's a mystery. While I’m not sure why it works so well, I can’t argue with the fact that it does work very well. This bar takes this great flavour combination and it does nothing fancy. Cadbury just make’s this bar right because the bar tastes great. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is the texture. I was thinking it would melt in my mouth a little better, but it really didn't. I'm a fan of chocolate so smooth that you feel you don't even have to chew it. I'm sure that's just a bit of the candy snob in me coming out. Unfortunately, this bar just didn’t have that amazing melting texture that I find in many other Cadbury bars.

I guess this bar isn't very creative either, but Cadbury doesn't really do creative as much as they just do the basics right. I think that’s a good thing, if you’re not going to go for super creative, going for perfection with simplicity is a great way to go.
