Review: Cadbury Dairy Milk Oat & Crunch


The Cadbury Dairy Milk Oat & Crunch is the latest addition to the Dairy Milk biscuit range which already includes the Dairy Milk Lu and Dairy Milk Ritz bars. It's a welcome idea, combining Dairy Milk chocoalte, biscuit, and oats to create an appealing snack.


Each bar has 150 calories and is made up of two easily breakable oat crunch biscuits. Cadbury describes the Dairy Milk Oat & Crunch as a wholesome new bar that makes the ideal mid morning snack, providing a boost to take you straight through to lunchtime. 


The flavour of the biscuit here is actually quite simple, with a golden oaty flavour that is not too sweet. It's a nice oaty base for the thick layer of delicious Dairy Milk chocolate that lies in between two layers of biscuit. It's interesting that the Dairy Milk Oat & Crunch is being pitched as a mid morning snack, and it's definitely more of a biscuit than a chocolate bar, so I wouldn't feel guilty about eating this earlier in the day as a treat. It provides a lovely chocolate hit without all the calories of a chocolate bar. 


Compared to the other biscuits in the range, the Dairy Milk Oat & Crunch is not as sweet as the LU version or have the salty edge of the Ritz variety - it's more of a breakfast biscuit type of flavour but still with the sweetness of Dairy Milk chocolate. It also has less calories than the other two varieties which makes it a very welcome alternative as a chocolatey treat.

    1. To add: there's no denying Cadbury get a lot of criticism and condemnation these days (any look through their Facebook page will show that) but credit where credit's due, this Oat Crunch is a decent new product.
