Cadbury Raisins

Cadbury Raisins

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.

Cadbury Raisins

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.

    Dom, you poor little thing! Don’t you worry: if you ever happen to buy another bag, I’ll come and share them with you! 😉
    (I love chocolate coated raisins too!)

    I wouldn’t reseal it either.
    I have bought bags of pick and mix that were half choco raisins, half Brazil nuts covered in choc….and not even feel guilty for not leaving any for my daughter later…

    but in my experience, Cadbury could make them much nicer than the rest…they don’t.
