Cadbury Royal Dark
May 20, 2009 - chocolate
Never saw a dark chocolate from Cadbury here in the States, so we thought we’d pick this up for a try. The chocolate snob in us shudder at the mere thought of even trying this, but fair is fair. So, here we go: a bit too sweet for my taste. There’s a bit of a nutty taste, but tastes like mass-market ‘dark’ chocolate.
Flip over the wrapper, and no surprise here – manufactured by Hershey under license. The do a nice attempt at making it look like a British import, but I think discerning consumers will see through it.
Thinking more about it, and it seems to have an uncanny resemblance to Hershey’s Special Dark (not as creamy, and not as sweet) and probably more like Dove’s Special Dark.
