Cadbury 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.
Upon 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…
