Cadbury Bar of Plenty + Win Chocolate worth $50

September 8th, 2010

This post was sponsored by Nuffnang and Cadbury.

After recently joining Nuffnang, I was ecstatic to find my first sponsored post from them involved chocolate. If they were looking for someone who loves chocolate they found the right person. The week I was told about the project, I had already made and devoured three chocolate fondant puddings (trying to get the photography right – of course), so I think that proves I am a chocoholic! I even have a category in my sidebar dedicated to chocolate, for all those other chocolate fanatics.

What could be better than finishing off the week with two new chocolate bar flavours in Cadbury’s Bar of Plenty range? Well, I can tell you! One reader has the chance to win Cadbury Chocolate valued at $50 – see below for details.

When I heard about the two new flavours, I was convinced I was going to enjoy the roasted hazelnut and honey roast cashews and was interested to try the Berry fruit and vanilla shortcake, even though I often don’t like dried fruit with chocolate.

I thought both flavours had a nice amount of nuts, shortcake and/or berries (depending on the bar) covered in milk chocolate. There certainly are plenty “bits” and they’re quite small and evenly distributed, so you’re sure to get a good amount in each square. The squares seem bigger than your average piece of a chocolate block, which suits me fine! I enjoyed the roasted hazelnut and cashews very much, as expected, but I also liked the sweet and flavoursome dried cranberries mixed in with the shortbread. Both flavour combinations worked very well with the chocolate.

Somehow I managed to save some to share with my family. They also enjoyed the new flavours, and some, like me, also liked the bigger pieces – who’s only going to eat just one square of the smaller pieces anyway?

I think either of them would be great chopped up on ice cream, although I didn’t get around to doing that – partly because we were lacking vanilla ice cream to have it with, and partly because we finished the block off too early!

This new range is available at most supermarkets.

  6. I saw this and it is def true!

    A good man is a woman’s best friend. He will reassure her when she feels insecure and comfort her after a bad day.
    He will inspire her to do things she never thought she could do; to live without fear and forget regret. He will enable her to express her deepest emotions and give in to her most intimate desires. He will make sure she always feels as though she’s the most beautiful woman in the room and will enable her to be the most confident, sexy, seductive, and invincible…

    No wait… sorry… I’m thinking of chocolate.

    Chocolate is a woman’s best friend……;)

  7. Wow! I think I need to setup Nuffnang so I can get free chocolate. haha Yummm

    I love chocolate because you can savour the taste by sucking on it slowly or go crazy and eat a block before you realise what just happened. Chocolate makes me happy and sometimes it makes me feel naughty.

  8. I am in love with chocolate because chocolate soothes and calms and never breaks the heart.

  10. Drizzled over rich desserts, sprinkled onto cakes,
    When it comes to chocolate I won’t take any fakes (this means you carob!)
    With hazelnuts or honeycomb, white or dark or milk,
    Picnic, full of crunchy nuts, or Lindt, smooth as silk!

    Truffles, mini chocolate treats, gone within one bite,
    After dinner mints, filled with fondant-y delight,
    Best of all’s a square of dark melting in the mouth,
    Improve on perfection? I don’t know how!
