Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk with Creme Egg Ice Cream bar Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk with Creme Egg Ice Cream bar
Posted: 19:20 Tue 29-May-2007. Price: About 1. Location: Convenience store, Finchley Road. Nutritional unusualness: 24.5g "carbohydrate", 205 kcal per 75ml bar.
Snackspot reports: First there was the Creme Egg. Then there was a bar of it. And some ice-creams, as well. And now this is a bar of those! Or perhaps that should be "was" - these were everywhere a couple of weeks ago, but have now completely disappeared so, although the Creme Egg Bar aims to let you enjoy its fondant effect all year round, the choc ice must have been an Easter-only thing. Anyway, it's no great loss - the "goo" isn't bad, but the coating wasn't as chocolatey as Cadbury's increasingly ubiquitous Chunky Choc Ice, and the whole thing less intriguing than the unexpectedly Dulce de Leche-containing Walls Cornetto Choco Disc.

...Casting our net a little wider, you can almost see the Balearic glow on the Magnum Essence which "Zeddy" found for 1.50 Euros in a "Tourist shop, Menorca", celebrating: "What a treat! Basically a dark chocolate choc ice with vanilla ice cream inside. The best bit however was a wedge of what I would describe as a dark choc Wispa running through the ice cream. Made in Italy, it says on the packet." - and, coincidentally, the oddest name I've heard for a dessert since the Chocolate Chaos was unleashed by Tesco.

Comment: I think Cadbury's are obsessive-compulsive with these dairy milk bars

Comment: If you find a Magnum Essence this summer, don't hesitate. It's the dog's danglies.

Comment: Cadbury's are too obsessive about them. They got rid of the Wispa for peanuts sake, to make 'Dairy Milk Bubbly'!

Comment: When will Cadbury's stop trying to pretend that Creme Egg fondant is NOT the new caramel?! It's not a versatile ingredient and isn't pleasant except in very cruel circumstances. It is too sickly for anybody human. Please Cadbury's realise your mistakes and learn from them!
