As the saying goes 'you wait around ages for one bus and then two come along at once' and the same can be said of the new Cadbury Eclairs flavours. After bringing you all our review of the well received Cadbury Eclairs Hazelnut Twist - See HERE, we today bring you the ChocolateMission ruling on the second of the two new varieties, the Cadbury Eclairs Orange Twist. These 'Caramels with orange flavour milk chocolate centres' were sent to us by one of Cadbury's many PR companies and were dispersed amongst the ChocolateMission team for testing.
Overall Cadbury have released so many new products this year they were bound to come unstuck eventually. They've not released many that we would categorise as 'exceptional', but until now its not as if they have released any we would have counted as a fail. Unfortunately we do have to categorise these Cadbury Eclairs Orange Twist as the latter, they simply just didn't go down well with anyone in the team! As you will have ascertained from our taste description above the orange element added to the chocolate just didn't enhance the overall experience for the team. Whilst absent in aroma it certainly wasn't absent in the taste. It came across overpowering and given it was disliked for it's artificial nature the orange flavouring wasn't perceived as a favourable addition to the standard Eclairs. Chocolate orange fans may want to check these out however we aren't going to recommend them.
