One of the unique style of Cadburys Chocolate Bar is the sensation of the chocolate at the first bite. As you take your first bite, it is clean with no crumbles and then as it progresses deeper into the chocolate bar the honeycomb melts and crumbles into your mouth. It seems to crackle into your mouth as the honeycomb melts and washes around your mouth with the taste of the original Cadburys Chocolate surrounding it.
The smell of the honeycomb stands out very well as you are smelling it, with an after smell of dark chocolate, even though it doesn’t contain it! Although, it still has the delicious smell of the original Cadburys bar, but as the honeycomb is buried underneath it, you can smell almost two different smells at the same time!
As you are 'CRUNCHING' your way through the chocolate bar, the flavors are tumbling in your mouth, only if there was just a little more honeycomb it would make it EVEN better, but as the way it is, the combination is ok. The honeycomb is not too sticky that is sticks to your teeth, and neither too weak that you can hardly taste it, and your after taste is strongly honeycomb, which is a good thing! Everyone likes and after taste of honeycomb!
The vibrant, stylish, bright packaging makes you want to grab it from the shelf, even if it's the only thing you can buy. It entices you into buying it and if you ever get the moments when your standing in the chocolate shop debating between two chocolate bars making a fool out of yourself, which I surely do myself - I have your answer, Crunchie should definitely win, all the time and every time! The packaging makes it look like its a proper chocolate bar, with a sense of ‘crunchiness in it,’ not just a lousy one.
A little nibble of the honey comb alone however does taste like normal honeycomb. It just absorbs into your mouth and STILL has the taste of the chocolate even though its honeycomb alone!
Another unique point about the Crunchie is that the advertising for once, is just what it looks like on the inside! As you bite further into the chocolate bar, the crunchiness remains but it just gets stronger and stronger as you chew, and soon the chocolate texture swirls out again.
The Cadburys Crunchie Chocolate Bar is very indulging and is not that sickly... its perfect for a lunch box or a snack a tea time and is definitely not too rich.
Me, The Chocolate Critic has decided, Crunchie is perfect for someone who likes the taste that is not TOO chocolatey and not TOO bland and tasteless but JUST right in the middle with some surprise of crunchiness added too!
