It’s a good thing that Cadbury Time Out come in multi packs because quite simply, one is not enough!
Ok so these multi packs contain smaller twin bars but still….
Certain foods leave you wanting more when you have eaten what can be considered the correct portion, and Time Out is one such food item. Moreish is the word to describe this chocolate. Is it just we Brits who use the word moreish?
The multi packs are found in the biscuit section of the supermarket, so, are they biscuits? I think not! I’m sure they are displayed alongside the other chocolate bars in smaller shops but having never looked for them in a smaller shop I couldn’t say for certain – buy a single bar of chocolate? Not me!
If Time Out was a wafer covered in chocolate then I’d say ‘yes, it’s a biscuit’, but these fingers contain two thin, light and crispy wafers which sandwich a slice of what appears to be Flake or Twirl. This is all then covered in milk chocolate. So you see, more chocolate , less wafer – even Dom may approve of these.
The pack states ‘ Two milk chocolate covered wafer fingers with milk chocolate centres.’ I personally think that Cadbury aren’t doing themselves any favours by describing it as a milk chocolate centre because this description tends to imply a solid centre. The fact that the centre isn’t solid but crumbly and soft is what makes Time Out so delicious. So trust me on this, don’t be fooled by the wrapper.
Are biscuits less guilt laden than chocolate bars? Do you suffer from chocaguilt? If you answered yes to both these questions then Time Out is for you. “They were on the biscuit shelf m’lud.” – we won’t tell ;)
