At long last! The Cadbury Double Decker bar! I’ve been wanting to try one of these ever since I read a review of them over at Chocablog. My excitement heightened when I had the bar in hand and read the description on the side: “milk chocolate with smooth, chewy nougatine and crisp crunchy cereal filling”. CANDY SWOON! I couldn’t tear it open fast enough.
Firstly, this bar is nothing to sniff at. It certainly lives up to its name, as it’s hefty and tall at 60g.
Unlike the Triple Decker I had from Australia, the Double Decker is not a “solid"bar. Instead it’s enrobed, hiding all sort of deliciousness underneath.
So what is under all that chocolate? The bottom half is like a Nestle Crunch bar and the top is fluffy and soft like the inside of a 3 Musketeers. smells sweet, milky of dried milk powder. The flavor is sweet, with a nice chocolaty taste from the coating, a sweet caramel flavor from the nougatine, and the malty carby flavor of the cereal. I also get some light coffee notes in here too.
Aside from the amazing flavor, the Double Decker is really all about the texture. It has a play of soft and crunchy, smooth and grainy…. a true master of contrast. It’s quite the mouthful too. It’s got a very substantial, hefty chew. It’s very satisfying and filling because of this.
Love, love this bar. It’s everything I was expecting it to be and more. Only downside is because of it’s heft, I have to limit myself with these. Or else become a Double Decker myself!
