Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Hot Choc Chunks
Posted: 17:19 Sat 28-Mar-2009. Price: £2.19/ box of 10. Location: Tesco, Lanarkshire.
"Robert Funland" reports: The blocks do just look like giant blocks from Dairy Milk bars, but they aren't solid - they are filled with soft chocolate mixture. I think you are supposed to just place the block in a mug and pour hot milk over it, because adding the block to a saucepan of hot milk makes it look like you've burned the chocolate. Doesn't have the heavy aftertaste which clings to your tongue like regular hot chocolates :D
...First-time spotter "Robert" shares some of Foodstuff Finds' puzzlement over how these are supposed to work - I found that they make a recognisably Cadbury's-flavoured beverage when added to microwaved milk (though not as nice as the Gu Hot Chocolate from the Waitrose cafe on Edgware Road), especially if you resist the temptation to take a peek at the chunk while it's disintegrating.
In other Cadbury creativity: they're also producing a new range of Cadbury Clusters, Cadbury Peanuts and Cadbury Raisins (all from 50p); I was completely wrong about Green and Black's Creamy Milk being a Dairy Milk-alike, as it actually has a burnt-sugar taste much more like Galaxy; and "George and Kim" were at least intrigued by this Bournville Orange bar (launched in conjunction with
Bournville Old Jamaica) which "My dad Ian found while on a chocolate binge in the Cadbury shop in Portsmouth. It has strange almost jelly-like pieces in it. Not unpleasant but not quite as nice as Terry's Chocolate Orange."

Comment: The G&B Creamy Milk is in a lot of WHSmiths in train stations for £1/100g; to be honest it didn't do much for me - it tasted a little different from Dairy Milk; but frankly not that much and I wasn't sure if I preferred it or not - I'd rather stick with the G&B dark Mint.
Still it disappeared before the train arrived :-)
Must look out for that Bournville Orange though.
