Cadbury Flake Moments

This attractive bright yellow box on the shelf of my local Budgens caught my attention, so I thought I’d give it a go.

Inside the box are two layers of eleven bite-sized pieces of Cadbury Flake in six different varieties.

Nice enough to look at, but certainly not spectacular. In fact, the first thing I noticed was how dull the chocolate looked. I’m guessing that’s partly down to the fact that this box was fast approaching its Best Before date, and partly because that’s just the nature of Flake.

Each of the different varieties is given an evocative name… “Escape”, “Dream”, “Delight”, “Charm”, “Indulge” and “Classic”. Unfortunately, the chocolates don’t quite live up to their names. In fact, they all taste exactly the same – like Cadbury Flake.

There is some dark and white chocolate in here, but they have a major impact on the texture or flavour with the result that it quickly becomes a very boring box of chocolates. I ploughed my way through one of each variety, but simply couldn’t face any more than that. It’s just too sugary, dry and dull.

There may be hardcore Flake fans (and people with an affinity for yellow boxes) out there that will love this, but I can’t recommend it for anyone else.

    Never understood the popularity of the flake myself when there’s so much choice available. They are nice in a sundae though :)

    I couldn’t agree more when it comes to the taste of these: all of them are pretty much the same. They’re almost sickly sweet and very, very boring. Good gift for a kid, not so good for true chocolate lover.

    I’ve never been much of a Flake fan and definitely not wanting one in my Mr Whippy either, chocolate is not meant to be rock hard!

    I’m sure flakes were only popular cos the blokes perved over the girls in the ads :)

    I believe I had a box of these last year and deemed them too boring to review. I think the kids got them.

    Nothing is too boring for me!

    However much you love a Flake (like myself), a box of these is going to bore you, because all it is is a box of the same bar, with a little more sweetness.
