Butlers Mixed Berry White Chocolate

Another pick from our seemingly endless supply of Butlers bars here. We don’t often do white chocolate, but the picture on the wrapper of this one got my attention. It looked like there was a decent amount of fruit packed into it, so I though I’d risk the sugar overload and give it a go.

Open the wrapper and you’re immediately greeted by the aroma of fruit. Lots of fruit. Strawberries, primarily, but this bar also contains blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and lingonberries… yeah, I had to look that one up as well.

The fruit takes the form of tiny freeze dried pieces embedded through the bar. Lots and lots of them. And all that fruit certainly gives this bar something unique because the overwhelming flavour is that of strawberry milkshake. A really good strawberry milkshake at that.

The white chocolate is sweet of course, but not too sweet, and the fruit is the dominant flavour. Those tiny pieces become more intense as they melt in the mouth which just make the whole thing extremely moreish.

But those tiny fruit pieces are also give the bar an interesting crunchy texture. Just occasionally though, there’s a little piece that’s too hard, which is really the only thing that spoils this bar. Feeling like you’ve broken a tooth on a strawberry isn’t much fun.

That aside, this is one of the nicest white chocolates I’ve had in a long time – a fact that has more to do with the fruit and the chocolate.

  1. Who cares about fancy lingonberries – blackberries?! Why don’t more chocolates include those? I’m not hugely into white chocolate either (except Askinosie, or Vestri’s pistachio bar) but this looks like it’s worth a shot!

    I think this is the only other chocolate with blackberry we’ve reviewed.

    To be honest though, in this one the overriding flavour is strawberry milkshake rather than blackberry. :)

  3. *giggles* Those are the bars that I sent Kath! That’s me, Hannah! I don’t know why I find this so amusing, but I do.

    Now I want to make a blackberry milkshake…

    I think that just shows I’m either stupid or forgetful – probably both. Either way, I want a blackberry milkshake too now. :)

    I LOVE white chocolate and am always finding so few options when it comes to getting “adventurous” with white chocolate. Mostly I find dark chocolate and milk chocolate comes in a close second but I really wish that there were more white chocolate variations out there for white chocolate lovers like me! This one looks like it’s definitely worth it though, berries + white chocolate and I’m sure I’ll be in heaven!

  6. oh my, white chocolate and berries! sounds wonderful — I’ve been on a real berry kick lately….I would love to try this chocolate bar!

  7. I usually see fruit flavored white chocolate bars with Japanese confectionery, really hoping this trend might catch up in the U.S. In the meantime, I’ll be purchasing these bars via the web. Really glad to have found a site that ships domestically within the U.S
