Never in the history of… well, anything, has a product been so unimaginatively named. I mean “Cadbury Snack”??
Going on the name and packaging alone, I wasn’t expecting a lot from this. And my expectations were confirmed upon opening it.
Inside are 6 small, square shortbread biscuits covered in a very thin layer of milk chocolate. Nothing more, nothing less. It most certainly should not be confused with the Australian product of a similar name, which looks a whole lot nicer.
The chocolate (what there is of it) is nice enough – typical cadbury, but the shortcake biscuit takes dullness to a whole new level. It’s hard and slightly insipid tasting.
Combined with the chocolate, it’s not that bad, but if you let the chocolate melt and then eat the shortcake biscuit, it’s not very nice at all. It could be just about any cheap, no-brand chocolate biscuit.
I imagine this is aimed at the kind of person that picks something up in the moring to to snack on at work during the day. The small pack bite-sized chocolate biscuit format would seem ideal for that, but unfortunately the product itself doesn’t do anything for me. I don’t think I’ll be buying this one again.
