Cadbury Winter Gingerbread Chocolate Cake Bars

Afternoon Chocoloholics!

My husband bought me these as he knows I love chocolate cake and I love gingerbread. He said as soon as he saw them, he knew he had to get me some. I had these last night. Let’s see what I made of them.


Cadbury Winter Gingerbread Chocolate Cake Bars

”Chocolate flavoured sponge with a gingerbread flavour topping, covered in milk chocolate."

I ripped open the pack and the first thing I saw was that there were 6 cake bars not 5. I actually thought my eyes were deceiving me!


I’m not complaining! Although I did think the cake bars were smaller than expected. I was expecting them to be similar size to Cadbury Mini Rolls. They didn’t smell gingery either. Normally anything that contains ginger, you can smell a mile off. There was no smell to these, not even when I opened the individual bar. They were much smaller than expected! Maybe that’s why this pack and an extra one as Cadbury knew this was going my way. I took a bite. I struggled to get any ginger flavour or any gingerbread flavour at all. The chocolate cake did taste chocolatey, but only faintly. I went in for another bite. This time I closed my eyes to really see if I could get any of that gingerbread or ginger taste. Nothing! Yeah, not great at all. I won’t be wanting these again.

I was very disappointed by the lack of flavour with these. Even though I had an extra one in the pack, I could have done without it. I couldn’t finish the pack as I would normally do. That’s saying something about these cake bars. I’m not one to leave a box wth something left unless I am full up to the brim! These were tasteless. I think these should be advertised as a kids treat. They were small and uninteresting for my talented tastebuds. Maybe these would suit undeveloped tastebuds instead. Really put a damper on my evening. I didn’t even want anything else after these. Yuk!
