It is funny how random Cadbury products seem to appear from almost nowhere sometimes. Whilst queuing in my local Sainsbury's the other week I saw this CadburyDairy Milk Chocolate Flapjack nestled in between the chocolate bars on the impulse stands by the tills. Personally I had never seen one of these before, a very quick Internet search has shown that this range was first launched in 2004, and included a 'fruit and nut' variant ... though there have been very few sightings. Throwing caution to the wind (oh what a devil I am!!), I decided to pick one up.

The flapjack came in a large 75g serving, comprised of a thick flapjack base and plentiful helping of Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate placed on top. The outer packaging as you can see had a pretty standard purple Cadbury theme, the flapjack itself lacked a little imagination and maybe could have been bettered with a Cadbury logo inscribed ... this could have just been any old flapjack. Opening the wrapper I was met with chocolaty, cakey scents - the packaging obviously did a great job at maintaining the freshness. 

This freshness was none more evident through the crumbly and soft feel of the flapjack. The flapjack had a thick stodgy consistency that made for a very fulfilling snack. The base had a fantastic buttery, oaty taste - it was sweet but not over powering and the gooey substance that fused the oats had a taste that reminded me of Cadbury Caramel. The creamy butter flavours of the flapjack were further enhanced by the dairy flavours of the Cadbury Dairy Milk. I was half expecting the flavours of the chocolate to be lost in the dense nature of the base, however the chocolate was generously portioned meaning it's creamy, delicious flavours were ever present and a perfect enhancement.

Overall this was an extremely satisfying, great tasting snack that I very much enjoyed. The flapjack was deliciously comprised with a wonderful mix of oat, caramel and butter flavours. The Dairy Milk chocolate truly added a delightful finish to the product - making for a long lasting enjoyable flavour. If you like flapjacks this is a product you will very likely enjoy - I would love to hear from anyone who has tried one already for their thoughts. Another random, but deeply satisfying product from Cadbury.
