Sally “The New Lady” in Darrell’s office gave him a new Cadbury Marvellous Creations bar as a small "Thank You" for making her feel most welcome and showing her the ropes (in the Gym and in the Site Managers Office), and for letting her use his fingerprint to get some lunch one day when she only had a £20 note as the kitchen doesn’t accept cash payment requiring change of such mahoooosivity!
Darrell was very chuffed, but asked the aforementioned Sally “The New Lady” if she would mind if he didn’t actually consume it there and then but rather take it home as he would very much like to do one of our, now world famous, confectionary reviews.
There was a still, awe filled hush in the kitchen of Castle Greysquirrel as we all looked at Darrell’s very kind, comestible gift and studied the packaging robustly ….. there was soooooo much going on ….. chocolate, fruit jellies, popping candy and candy coated chocolate beans, even the bar itself was divided into out of kilter shapes ……. ……. were we up to this challenge we had to ask ourselves? To be honest we found the whole experience slightly weird (even for us) …. there was crunchy, there was chewy, there was fruity, and then there was a pinging and popping at the back of our throats that seemed to echo for ages in our heads between our ears …………all intermingled and entwined in the comforting familiarity and smoothness of Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate.
Now, in our considered opinion this is the sort of confectionary that we would purchase for its novelty value or as conversation piece at one of our soirees …… but we don’t think it will become a staple in our sweetie tin. The popping candy doesn’t really make it a “comfort” confectionary ….. something for mellow evenings whilst we watch Britain’s Got Talent or The Apprentice ….. so sadly, though there was much nomming, we feel that we can only award this chocolate bar 5 out of 10 on our Richter Scale of noms……. for which we can only apologise profusely.
