Cadbury Boost Nuts

The newest seasonal version of the Cadbury Boost bar is simply called 'Nuts' , though it would be better of called 'Peanuts' those are the only nuts in use here. The milk chocolate bar has a soft choc centre stuffed with peanuts, and then a layer of caramel is added before the final enrobing of Cadbury milk chocolate.

Head after the jump for more!

The packaging is uninspiring, and has a bit of a 90s vibe to it. It has the bold Cadbury purple background, with a yellow overlay and the bright red Boost logo. The solid, stumpy bar weighs in at a hefty 54g, and appears very similar to other Boost bars with the ripples across the top of the bar. The milk chocolate contains 28% cocoa solids, and has a light, milky scent.

Inside, the layer of caramel is thick and well-coloured. It's sweet but I couldn't really discern any sugar or other notes. The choc centre is curious. It's quite firm, and a little bit creamy as well. The peanut halves are whole (but tiny) and are packed in firmly. There also seem to be smaller pieces as well. Despite the high number of peanuts (19% of the total bar), the peanut flavour is not strong. Instead I get more of a soft, chocolately peanut brittle flavour, without the salt. I personally would have liked a little bit of salt added, but that may have made the flavour more peanut-buttery, and that's not really a flavour that has taken off in Australia.

The chew is firm, but not as firm as a Mars Snickers bar, and the flavour profile is different. I find a Snickers bar sweeter than Boost Nuts. You might enjoy this bar if Snickers is too sweet for you.

Score: 3.5 out of 5 jelly beans.

Cadbury Boost Nuts is made in Australia. It contains wheat, milk, peanuts and soy. It may also contain traces of tree nuts.
