Woohoo I can now cross another Cadbury product off my 'to review list. These Cadbury Curly Wurly Squirlies are a variation of the original Curly Wurly and are simply small chewy caramel pieces coated in chocolate.

The caramel isn't the worst - it does taste quite sugary but you would expect that with most caramel bar. Behind the sweetness it does taste nicely buttery and it does melt quite nicely in the mouth with a nice slow chewy consistency. Whereas the caramel was rather tasty I thought the chocolate was pretty disappointing and this was largely down to it not appearing particularly fresh with a very dusty looking surface. The chocolate not only didn't appear fresh but I felt the melt was very grainy for Cadbury chocolate and I was disappointed at how thin it was implemented. The chocolate basically didn't really deliver the desired chocolate flavour hit and failed to leave a lasting chocolaty impression in my mouth. On a more positive note the nutritional values were not bad considering the pack size.

Overall this was no where near the best Cadbury product I have reviewed on this site so far. The real disappointment for me was the chocolate which was not up to the usual Cadbury standard with its laboured, cloying melt and unfresh appearance. This was a shame as the inner chewy caramel was actually very moreish and pleasant.
