Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Flake Dark Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Flake Dark
Posted: 14:03 Sun 08-Oct-2006. Price: 45-49p. Location: Greenock, Scotland; Woolworths, Norwich.
"A" reports: I've been trying to get ahold of a Dark Flake for a while now. They have been available in Canada or Australia named Flake Noir - here they're just plain old Flake Dark. Same crumbly texture - at first it just seems like a regular Flake then you get the dark chocolate taste. Nice but not as good as I was expecting.

..."A" submitted our first UK sighting of this international favourite, but "Tom F" provided the picture, professing: Just found this in a promotional bin in Woolworths. It's pretty tasty, nothing you wouldn't expect, it's a Flake that tastes like Bournville. The chocolate might be a bit softer than the normal variant... I can't think of any other bar that directly competes with this so I suppose they've got a niche. I'd certainly buy it again if it were a bit cheaper - while "charl" coinicidentally spotted the regular return of Tunnock's Dark Chocolate Tea Cakes (74p/ box of 6; Waitrose, Sheffield), agreeing: Once inside the classier brassier wrapper, with such a fine layer of chocolate outside so much mallowy goodness, it's hard to tell the difference between this and the milk chocolate version. It's delicious, certainly, but does it have the air of continental elegance that plain chocolate so often lends a snack? I think not, and I love it for that.

Comment: Wasn't too keen on the dark Flake. Could have been 'darker'.

Comment: This isnt great. Its a bit cheap tasting and doesnt do "flake" justice. Think it was a wrong move by cadbury, likewise with the white chocolate one. On the other hand the new "fine dark kitkat" is really good.

Comment: I preferred the dark Kitkat too.

Comment: I haven't tried the original flake and find this one very crumbly and sweet. There's no smoothness/ cocoa taste to me. So it's pretty disappointing really.

Comment: I love these, I live in Perth so getting hold of them is quite difficult. I usually pick them up fromhttp://www.britsabroadltd.co.uk they can usually get hold of most chocolates and deliver quite quickly (top tip if you are desperate for your favourite chocs like me). 94140

Comment: I didn'y think much of flake dark, the chocolate isn't very dark I suppose they have made it friendly to milk chocolate lovers, not very impressed! Flake praline is stll the best of the flake range.

Comment: Flake Dark is horrible. By the way, has anyone seen Flake Snow anywhere? I last saw them in Woolworths in February 2007 and their best before was also February 2007! Never a good sign...

Comment: Once you've tried dark, you won't go back. To paraphrase.
