Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Bubbly and Crispies
Posted: 11:20 Mon 11-08-2003. Price: 45p. Location: Old Street, London. Sub-flavours: Turkish, Caramel, Mint Chips.
"Lee Maguire" reports: Can't really judge the Bubbly, since by the time I got it home, it had been reduced to its primordial liquid state. Curse this non-chocolate-eating weather! The Crispy is a bit too subtle. On a scale of crispiness (1 being regular Dairy Milk, 10 being a Rice Krispie "Cake") this would maybe rate a 3.

...An intriguingly mistimed launch from Cadbury here, as chocolate conveniently melts at around body temperature (37 degrees C), with the result that most non-air-conditioned shops were selling foil sachets of liquid Dairy Milk Bubbles last week, which presumably reverted into plain old "Dairy Milk" if you put them in the fridge. Also, clearly they haven't rebranded their entire range of countline bars - "Cadbury's Flake", for instance, hasn't suddenly turned into "Dairy Milk Flaky". In other chocolate-coated news, last week's hinted-at new Kit Kat offshoot appears to be Kit Kat Kubes (37p/ 50g bag, from Sep 15), though clearly not a patch on the Strawberry, Banana, Pineapple, and "Double Berry" Kit Kats, Hersheys 'n' Fruit Lemon and Lime and tooth-remineralising Recaldent dental gum (sweetened with non-cariogenic xylitol) currently enjoyed by the Japanese.

Comment: "range of countline bars"? I can understand the meaning from the context, but for me this is new jargon. Thanks, snackspot!

Perhaps a glossary would be an idea?

Comment: 'Cadbury's Dairy Milk with Caramel' is out already. The difference between this and a normal Caramel bar seems to be just the packet. Coming soon, so I'm told, is the same Dairy Milk bar but 'bubbly' - a rebadged Whispa and 'chrunchie' - with flakes of Crunchie in it. Why you would pay 10p more than to have your usual Caramel/Whispa/Crunchie is beyond me as I doubt they will taste any different - the Caramel version was identical to the usual Caramel when the two were compared. There will be a BIG marketing thing about this soon.

Comment: good idea Lee, though I'll have to clarify some definitions for my own benefit first. I *think* "countline" is short for "a line of products sold on a counter", but some sources - eg: http://www.thetimes100.co.uk/files/7/Nestle_Ed7.pdf

(caution, PDF) reckon it's any kind of "chocolate based bar".

Comment: What I want to know is: what's going to happen to all the Wispa spinoffs, like my Ant-and-Dec-endorsed favourite, the Wispa Bite? Will it become "Dairy Milk B ubbly Bite" instead?

Comment: Try getting a hold of Cadbury's After dinner Sorbets! They are heavenly but apparently only available on British Airways flights.

Comment: Why does George Michael have chocolate all over his face?

Because he was careless with his Wispa!

(sorry, thought that joke could do with one last outing, before Cadbury retires the brand)

Comment: Safeway in Reading has the large slab version of the Bubbly, mint and biscuit. I picked up a small bubbly, and disappointingly it is just a squashed whispa. It does seem to melt a a much lower temperature that normal chocolate and it almost melted before by eyes on a not very hot day.

Comment: They're not fooling us - the much-vaunted Dairy Milk Bubbly is an Aero by any other name. Note to Cadbury's: have some ideas of your own.

Comment: I had a Cadburys Dairy Milk with Crispies the morning after my stag night. I proptly threw up into the toilet (not from the chocolate you understand) but the crispies wouldn't flush away! No matter how much paper I cucked down the toilet they wouldn't go. Eventually I had to scoop the film of chocolate, crispies & bile up and throw it out of the window as the smell of chocolate was continuing to make me queesy. I'd still eat another though.

Comment: hey! i was wondering, anyone know of a site which says any information on the re-branding of the cadbury products, in perticular the cadburys caramel to dairy milk with caramel. Need info for my coursework so anything would be fantastic! thankie!!
Posted: 09:50 Fri 27-Jan-2006 by "Phillerena" # permalink comment
Comment: Try cadbury.co.uk. Or google cadburys rebranding.

Comment: Many of the Cadburys chocolates are now manuactured in France or Poland and sold in the UK. This includes Dairy Milk, Bournville and many of the new flavours of Dairy Milk. I will not be buying any of these in future. I can understand the move to Poland (cheap labour costs), but France has much higher employment cost so I am puzzled by this move. 20449 9
