In mid-2017, Cadbury launched their Cadbury Dark Milk range that’s a ‘perfect blend of rich cocoa notes with the smooth taste of Cadbury Milk Chocolate’. This marketing confused me — and still continues to — because a darker version of milk chocolate is just chocolate with higher cocoa content and that’s been around since forever. Nothing to make a big fuss over.
Each bar — they also come in blocks now — is separated into rounded rectangular segments and stamped with the Cadbury logo.
Confusion over the fuss about these chocolates aside, this Dark Milk tastes delicious. As it implies, the flavour is darker than milk chocolate — the packaging doesn’t indicate the percentage of cocoa content — but avoids the intense sweetness that often accompanies the bitterness and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste from most dark chocolate purchased in Australia. The flavour is velvety smooth and gently sweet with a pleasant hint of bitterness.
This bar of Cadbury Dark Milk contained 35 g. It was produced in Australia and received free via a promotion at Coles in 2017.
