Bar of new flavours
I've been noticing the promotion of these new bars have been hitting the social media rounds hard on blogs since September due to Nuffnang's sponsorship with Cadbury — there seems to be a long list of 20 blogs that took up the promotion. Thanks to Food, booze and shoes for running a giveaway competition for a chance to try the new Cadbury Bar of Plenty flavours which thankfully I was one of the lucky winners. I received a block of the Roast Hazelnut & Honey Roast Cashews and the Berry Fruit & Vanilla Shortcake. A taste test was in order with a group of 7 other friends. The Roast Hazelnut & Honey Roast Cashews came out as the favourite but there wasn't much support for the Berry Fruit & Vanilla Shortcake one which I tend to agree with. That was until we feed them to an 11 year old girl and 14 year old boy who preferred the Berry Fruit & Vanilla Shortcake — very interesting. I think the younger preferred the sweeter bar while the older preferred the more savoury notes of the nut version. I quite liked the honey roasted cashews which provided a bit of a toffee like crunch to the bar. I'm hoping a dark chocolate version might come out which I think would even be better and less sweet — for my taste buds anyway.
If you're keen to try the new bars for FREE then check out the locations of where samples are being given out between August until October 2010. I spotted one of the locations is Woolworths Town Hall on 9 October 2010 between 11 am - 2 pm.
