Flake Praline is one of four new(ish) variations on Cadbury Flake – the others being Flake Dark, Flake Dipped and Snowflake.
The wrapper describes this as “Crumbly milk chocolate Flake nestled in a rich hazelnut praline”. I beg to differ.
I would describe it as “Cadbury Flake half dragged through a shallow bath of chocolate that happened to have some bits of non-descript nut in it”. But I guess that wouldn’t have looked quite so appealing on the label.
As you can see from the photo, once unwrapped, it doesn’t look particularly appealing either, so I maintain my description is more accurate.
Only the bottom half of the Flake is coated in this “praline” mixture, and to be honest, it just looks a mess (I’m still not convinced it’s actually meant to look like this). It certainly doesn’t look like any praline I’ve had before.
Texture wise, this is pretty much like a normal Flake – meaning it crumbled all over my keyboard upon biting into it. The only real difference is the small pieces of nut which give the bar a slightly gritty feel.
The taste is pleasant enough – the overall effect being just like a normal Flake with a hint of nuttiness. But I’m not convinced it’s different enough to make it worthwhile unless you’re an absolute hazelnut nut.
Nice enough, but I prefer the original.
