At this time of year, a Cadbury chocolate Easter egg meant imported, quality chocolate.
Not any more in the U.S.
Hershey bought the right to manufacture their version using the Cadbury brand.
This U.S. chocoholic would never associate “Hershey” and “quality.”
reviewing my Cadbury adventure
There’s a specialty candy store in a town near me. Curious about getting Cadbury locally, I called & talked to the owner.
She was amazed to hear (learnt from Natalie) Target was selling Cadbury bars. She couldn’t get any from her distributor, not even the traditional Easter eggs. Need to call her back because…
A couple days ago at Target I bought ($1.97 U.S.) a 3.5 oz “Cadbury Dairy Bar Fruit & Nut.” It tasted. . . . eh, too sweet.
Yesterday I saw the Cadbury bar (insert) and bought it. At $2.29 US for 3.5 ounces I won’t purchase again. Taste: Tooo sweet… bin it.
Getting really curious, I did some searching, learnt Cadbury UK doesn’t list a “Royal Dark” bar, and started drawing my own conclusions.
Immediately checked my precious McVitie’s digestives box: “Made in the UK by McVities…” and NO “Distributed in US by…” like the Hershey stuff. (With McVitie’s at $4.99 a box, you betcha they’re precious & bought only on sale. grrr)
