I’ve always had a soft spot for chocolate coated raisins, but I don’t think I’ve seen a bag as big as this before. 200g in a supposedly resealable bag that doesn’t actually work and forces you to eat them all in one sitting. Cadbury are evil.
They taste like any other chocolate raisins you might find. Sweet, chewy and fruity – with the occasional tiny piece of seed that makes you think you’ve broken a tooth.
Of course, they’re incredibly moreish, so even if the whole ‘resealable bag’ thing had worked, they’d still have been gone within ten minutes.
As you’d expect, the chocolate is standard Cadbury fare (complete with vegetable fat). Unfortunately it also has a shellac coating which makes the raisins sticky and slightly unpleasant to touch. I’ve never been a particular fan of shellac on chocolate and (in my opinion) makes the tiny ‘suitable for vegetarians’ logo on the packet a little questionable.
But if that’s not a problem for you, then there’s no denying, Cadbury Raisins are rather tasty. I’m not sure I’ll be buying them again, but that’s mainly down to the fact that they come in such a huge bag that I would be forced to eat by myself.
