Cadbury Snowflake

Posted by in Chocolate Reviews on October 16 2006 | Leave A Comment

Cadbury SnoflakeCadbury can’t seem to make up their mind what to call this one. The wrapper calls it ‘Flake Snow’, yet their web site calls it ‘Snowflake’. I’ve gone with Snowflake simply because it sounds better.

Whatever you call it, this bar is quite simple. A white chocolate Flake dipped in milk chocolate.

For me, the most interesting thing about this is that Cadbury don’t often do white chocolate. In fact, the only other products I can think of offhand are Dream Bar and white chocolate Buttons.

Cadbury SnowflakeUpon opening this bar, I was a good deal more impressed than I was with the Flake Praline. It’s a fairly non-descript finger of milk chocolate, but at least this one looks as though it’s actually finished.

It’s only when you bite into a Snowflake that it comes to life (and again, crumbles all over your keyboard – I never learn). I half expected it not to be as ‘flaky’ as a original Flake, but it was every bit as yummy and crumbly.

The white chocolate is very sweet, but that’s slightly offset by the thick milk chocolate coating. Apart from that, the taste is nothing to write home about, but it’s the texture that makes it stand out. The flakes of white chocolate melt away in the mouth, and all too quickly you wonder where your Snowflake went.

Overall, this is vastly superior to Flake Praline, but I still can’t see myself buying it regularly. Maybe as a treat for those days where I can’t decide between white or milk chocolate…

  1. I love snow flakes i remember trying one when they first came out and they were actually called snow flake and got hooked on the first bite. Fantastic Blog keep the chocolate coming.

    Mmmm, in New Zealand we have the new Mint Flake. It’s so good.

    The Snowflake is the most amazing chocolate EVER. I keep them in the freezer which keeps them fresh longer and also makes it fantastically crumbly when eating. When one takes a bit it first crubles and as it heats up in your mouth it gets sweeter and, finally, it almost takes like hot chocolate just as your swallowing it. I love these things and eat one (half of one if I can control myself) with black coffee every morning. It is a lovely way to start the day. Problem is, they are very very very hard to find.

    ” Problem is, they are very very very hard to find.”

    Can they be found at all any more?

    • I can’t seem to find them either and I do wish they would make more because the milk chocolate goes so well with the white chocolate, it almost tastes like kinder egg chocolate and that is the best combination! I have searched everywhere and the only one I can find is the original…gutted :’(

    “Can they be found at all any more?”

    It must be a good few years now since I last had one, I’m suprised at how recent the date on the original blog post is.

    Why do they always seem to discontinue the best products?? I just don’t understand and without warning too. First wispa just disappeared and now snowflake. They’re bringing wispa back soon though yey!

    • Orchid

      But how does one from UK get hold of them :(. ??? Please help/instruct. Oh and btw are they good quality and not some cheap version very important..

  21. Jim

    I cannot find them in the shops in Mid-herts

  22. Chris

    I E-mailed Cadbury asking if they’ll be bringing these back and they said: “Although this product has been discontinued, we do listen to consumers comments so there is a chance you may see it again in the future”. So in other words, everyone e-mail them asking them to bring them back ;D The more demand there is for it, the more chance of them bringing it back!

    • Chm

      Must depend on where you are, as they’ve not been discontinued here. I still see them for sale in the shop down from where I live.

      • Orchid

        Chm where do you live??? If you tell me the area i can pop down and pick some up. I have a £100.00 bet going on with a friend.
