Today is the start of our 2nd week in our month-long marathon of British snack reviews. Yesterday we published our first blind taste test. Our article took a look at British Kit Kat vs American Kit Kat. We had so much fun that we are already planning another snack duel for the end of this week. Today we are looking at the Cadbury Fudge, yet another British Snack that you can buy online starting January 1st when our international snack store launches.
Cadbury produces many of the delicious snacks from England we have reviewed this past week. For those of you who have just discovered our international snack blog we will give you a little background about this British Snack Brand. Initially started in 1824 in Birmingham, UK by John Cadbury, this company got it’ start selling coffee, tea, and drinking chocolate. For many years they reigned as one of the top British Confectionery producers until Kraft purchased the company in 2010. Kraft has since changed its name to Mondelez International and is the second largest producers of snack behind Mars. So enough about Cadbury, let’s take a look at the Fudge Bar.
This candy bar is fairly small and is often referred to as a finger of chocolate. I am pretty tall with fairly large hands and I have to say this is big for a finger, but small for a chocolate bar. The wrapping is mostly orange with “Cadbury purple” ends. The Fudge text is a bubbly blue and this version is marked 20p. Unfortunately with the logistics of importing Cadbury Fudge our price will not be quite as low. Now we know what the Cadbury Fudge looks like we can give it a try!
Upon opening our snack we were surprised when we broke the bar up to share with our testers that the fudge looked oddly like nougat. Our testers agreed and we all expected a dark chocolate colored fudge. After tasting the bar the surprise continued. Maybe fudge in the UK is different than the US. For a candy bar that is called the Cadbury Fudge there wasn’t much “fudge” about it. With that being said, it’s a rather enjoyable treat. Of course, the Cadbury chocolate outside is milky and pleasant. The “fudge” center is extremely sweet and mildly creamy.
The Cadbury Fudge will be one of the many British Snacks online that will be included in our store when we launch at the 1st of the year. In addition World of Snacks ships everywhere, so now you can have your candy no matter where you live. If you’d like to be the first to know about new snacks and be included on special promotions be sure to leave your details to the write. Be sure to check back tomorrow as we continue our journey through England’s best snacks!
