“ Brand: Cadbury / Type: Nuts „
This is part of a new range of chocolate bars released by Cadburys to spice up their Dairy Milk bars. Bar of Plenty bars come in 140g slabs and cost RRP £1.59. I managed to pick this one up in Poundland for just a £1. The packaging is really cute I like it a lot and it attracted me to the product when I saw it on the shelf. It has a sort of 'Willy Wonka' feel to it with the decorative curling script and the bold picture.
The bar looks appealing and is a warm brown colour. It has a traditional chocolate bar appearance with rows of indented blocks, each stamped with the Cadburys logo. It smells delicious with a lovely sweet, warm scent. There are a generous amount of nut pieces dispersed throughout the chocolate. Honey roasted cashew nuts are one of my favourite treats, and it was lovely to enjoy them as part of a chocolate bar. They added a nice crispy texture against the smooth chocolate, and worked well with the somewhat plainer flavoured roasted hazelnuts.
The Dairy Milk is as good as always, and is a high quality milk chocolate with a generous dairy content. This Bar of Plenty leaves behind a pleasant sweet aftertaste and the nuts make the bar more interesting than the original plain Diary Milk bar.
The recommended portion sizes are very strict - only 3 chunks! And in these measly three chunks there are a total of 95 calories. As long as you eat it sparingly it's a lovely treat and the strong flavour is sweet and long lasting, but it's very easy to be tempted into going back for seconds and end up eating a double-sized portion ;)
I would recommend this Roast Hazelnut and Honey Roast Cashews Bar of Plenty as I think it has a lovely flavour and is nice for a change to normal plain chocolate bars. This is my favourite variety from the Bar of Plenty range, and I will be purchasing it again.
Yes, I like it. Like a previous reviewer, I am a fan of Cadbury's whole nut and decided to try this new bar out. With this blend of good quality Cadbury chocolate. and my favourite hazelnuts mixed with cashews (a real favourite nut with me), I thought that I'd be in 7th heaven.
Sadly, this was not to be the case. Although the car is called 'Bar of Plenty', and it does contain its fair share of the aforementioned nuts, the overpowering taste is that of the chocolate, with only a hint of nutty taste in the background. A few more nuts to balance the taste might have been a better idea.
Apparently, the bar was introduced at the price of £1.00 only, which is, I think, good value. Now that the promotion is ended, I bought this bar for £1.65. To me, this is a tad expensive for something, which although very nice and tasty, is'nt really a novelty, nor is it anything far above ordinary. I can't see it still being on the shelves in 5 years time.
Back to Cadbury's Whole Nut for me.
Whilst shopping in Asda today I noticed the new Cadburys Bar of Plenty for just £1 for a 140g bar so I got one of the Roast Hazelnut and Honey Roast Cashew ones and one of the Berry Fruit and Vanilla Shortcake ones.
I decided to try the Roast Hazelnut and Honey Roast Cashew one whilst I sat watching opening game at Wimbledon this afternoon. I love anything with Cadburys Dairy Milk and nuts especially hazelnuts so I knew this was going to be good!
The wrapper is the distinctive Cadbury purple - there is no mistaking that this bar is made from Cadbury's Dairy Milk, in my opinion the very best chocolate in the world ever! The wording on the front of the wrapper just tells us what is contained therein together with a little (and I do mean little) note at the bottom right to remind us that this product should be eaten as a treat due to the amount of calories it contains.
On the back of the wrapper there is a note of the ingredients and both a note of the nutritional content per serving (three chunks - yeah right!) showing each item as a percentage of an adult recommended daily allowance and also a full nutritional list per 100g.
I tore open the wrapper and was greeted with the familiar yummy Cadbury Dairy Milk aroma and I could see that the bar contained a far amount of nuts. The bar is one of the thinner ones as opposed to one of the bigger 'chunky' bars.
I popped a chunk in my mouth and immediately the Cadburys chocolate began to melt as I began to chew thus getting a divine mixture of chocolate and nuts. The bar itself isn't anything special in my opinion but it does taste just as good as the Whole Nut bars. In fact I could only really taste the hazelnuts - I can't say that I noticed any honey roast cashews at all but I am sure they must have been there!
Now for the bad news!
I found it quite easy to eat the whole bar - certainly NOT the recommended serving of three chunks (and small chunks at that!). I am sure I am not the only person to have scoffed the lot either! LOL!
Take a deep breath - the nutritional amount for 100g of the chocolate is as follows - with the value for the whole bar in brackets after each one:
Calories 540 (756)
Protein 8.8g (12.32g)
Carbohydrate 50.6g (70.84g)
Of which sugars 49.8g (69.72g)
Fat 33.5g (46.9g)
Of which saturates 15.9g (22.26g)
Fibre 1.8g (2.52g)
Salt 0.2g (0.28g)
So you can see if, like me, you eat the whole bar in one go the nutritional information does not make good reading at all!
In conclusion, whilst I did enjoy the bar very much, I think I would rather buy one of the 200g bars of Cadbury's Whole Nut and share it, although for just £1 this one was good value!
As I said at the start I do also have the Berry Fruit and Vanilla Shortcake one so I had better save that one and share it with Dave! I will of course come back and tell you all what it was like once we have tried it.
I only eat these chocolate bars for research purposes you know! If you believe that you'll believe anything!
Cadbury's Bar of Plenty Roast Hazelnut and Honey Roast Cashews is one of a trio of new flavours produced by Cadbury as a bit of a twist on the traditional Dairy Milk range. This bar cost me £1.00 for a 140 gram bar of chocolate, good value by anyone's standards but excellent for a decent brand like Cadbury. It is available in all the usual good supermarkets and shops.
It is easy to recognise, with its purple foil wrapper and Cadbury logo, and a lovely fantasy style design.
First of all, you can taste the delicious Dairy Milk chocolate, then the taste sensation hits you: a lovely big hit of nuttiness: It is actually very similar to the old Whole Nut bar, which I love, so if you have enjoyed that, you will love this.
I love chocolate with nuts in it, but I must admit that I could not tell the difference between the cashew nuts and the hazelnuts, once the chocolate was in my mouth: So there is nothing new or original about the flavour, to be honest, but I would still definitely recommend it.
This product is very more-ish (unfortunately for my waistline!) and the pack size is quite clever: Big enough to be satisfying, unlike the little bars that you can get, but not so massive that you end up over-doing it.
This is the last of three different varieties in the relatively new Bar Of Plenty range from Cadburys who, until now, have always had something of a trustworthy reputation. I say up until now because with this latest promotion, the company seem to have bitten off a bit more than they can chew! (Pun intended!)
I am a big fan of nutty chocolate and will always go down the Snickers or Topic route if given a choice in confectionary chocolate. Likewise with Cadburys, I have always been partial to a bit of Fruit And Nut or Whole Nut chocolate so this looked like the ideal bar for me to try especially at a promotional price of £1; a whole 50p cheaper than this bar would normally retail at! The bumpf on the wrapping claims that this is Roasted Cashew And Hazlenut and, as I am also partial to Cashews, this was another element in its favour!
Oh dear! What a disappointment!! I could barely taste the Cashew in this chocolate and all I got was the texture and flavour of random nuts! It might have just as well been Hazlenut for all the difference I could taste in this bar! I mean don't get me wrong, this was a very enjoyable bar of chocolate but it could as well have been an ordinary bar of Fruit And Nut or Whole Nut and I wouldn't have been able to tell! They call this a Bar Of Plenty but I found no more nuts in this than in any other bar and really that whole product title is a bit of a misnomer if we're honest because there is only so many nuts you can put into chocolate before it becomes a different product entirely!
Overall, this is a satisfying bar but it doesn't really do what it says on the wrapper and the whole product description could easily be read as misleading! The only one of these bars that has proved signifcantly different was the Toffee Apple variety and, to my mind, Cadburys realy need to rethink this range and indeed their branding! Or at least come up with some new ideas different from anything else available on the market as the only one of these bars that stands out on the marketplace is the Toffee Apple one!
Cadbury have recently launched a new line of chocolate in the form of their 'Bar of Plenty' range, which consists of three tasty sounding varieties; 'Berry Fruit & Vanilla Shortcake', 'Toffee Apple', and 'Roast Hazelnut & Honey Roast Cashew' - this review focuses on the latter (arguably the least daring of the three), of which, the 140g bar can currently be picked up for £1.59 from Tesco.
Appearance & Taste
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
The chocolate arrives packaged in the traditional Cadbury's purple wrapper, and inside is arranged into the familiar block layout. The flavour is exactly the same as the classic Dairy Milk which we all know and love, and here it tastes as good as ever. The pieces of nut are generously interspersed throughout the chocolate and in most cases are rather large and crunchy. Happily, the honey roasted Cashew combines magnificently with the chocolate, and the hazelnut helps create an overall flavour which is extremely good.

The Bar of Plenty contains;
Milk, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Vegetable Fat, Emulsifiers (E42, E476), Flavourings, Roasted Hazlenuts (10%), and Honey Coated Chopped Cashew Nuts (10%).

At the end of the day, your enjoyment of the Hazelnut & Honey Roast Cashew Bar of Plenty will undoubtedly hinge on whether you like Cadbury's chocolate, and whether you like nuts - if it's a yes to both, then you'll find this new and exciting delicacy to be a certain winner. The product is basically a glorified Cadbury's 'Fruit and Nut', albeit without the fruit - and in my opinion, you can't go too far wrong with that... highly recommended, and something which I would certainly buy again.
Nutritional Info Per Three Blocks

Ooh la la!!! This is divine!!! I LOVE chocolate and this is without doubt the best bar I have ever tasted. Packed full of nuts this is not your average bar of chocolate!
The product was reccomended by a friend and as I love Whole Nut I thought I'd give this one a go. I found it quite hard to locate in my local supermarket. I looked by the other large bars of Cadbury chocolate but couldn't find it anywhere. I later discovered it further down the aisle where the 'posh' bars of chocolate are.
The bar is beautifully packaged. It has the purple wrapping typical of Cadbury' Dairy Milk and all it's variations, but this has that little extra colour and detail which make it look more expensive and identifies it as a premium bar of chocolate.
The product is packed full of nuts, both hazlenut and honey coated cashews and it is these which elevate this product to another level. The cashews are very crunchy and sweet and make this chocolate bar extremely luxurious and tasty. Anyone who loves Whole Nut will be blown away with this variation.
The only drawback is the price tag. At £1.68 this wasn't cheap and as such, it is more of a treat than a bar of chocolate you would buy to eat on the run. That said, it tastes gorgeous and is very moreish. A definite favourite in my house and a great accompaniment to your favourite TV programme!
After reading reviews about the Cadbury's bar of plenty range on here, I really wanted to try the hazelnut and cashew one. I finally found it for sale in Asda last night for £1 so I had to try it. I also bought a Galaxy nutty bar too to compare it with.
The wrapper is made from foil to keep the chocolate fresh for longer. It is metallic purple in colour with gold and white writing. There is a picture of a chunk of chocolate packed full of nuts with pictures of honey, hazelnuts and cashew nuts too.
The bar is 140g in size and 100g will give you 540kcal, 8.8g of protein, 50.6g of carbohydrates of which 49.8g are sugars, 33.5g of fat of which 15.9g are saturates, 1.8g of fibre and 0.08g of sodium. The chocolate is suitable for vegetarians but contains nilk and nuts as well as it may contain wheat and soya so it is not suitable for anyone with allergies to any of those ingredients.
When I opened the packet I was immediately hit by the rich chocolate aroma which was lovely and made me want to eat the whole bar straight away. When I looked at the bottom of the bar, I was surprised not to see as many pieces of nut as I had expected. The Galaxy bar definetely contained more but the pieces were smaller. I did find nearly whole hazelnuts in this bar. The chocolate is rich, smooth and creamy with that distinct Cadbury's taste. The roasted hazelnuts were really nice tasting and the flavour went really went well with the melting chocolate. I couldn't really taste the cashew nuts as they don't taste as strongly anyway. Overall the bar was very nice but wasn't as good as I expected.
I've been looking out for these new Cadburys chocolate bars for ages, I tried a sample of the toffee apple one in Morrisons and wasn't mad keen on that but knew I'd love this Cashew And Hazlenut bar because they're my 2 fave nuts and I LOVE Dairy Milk chocolate.
It's £1.00 for a 140g bar of chocolate and inside the old fashioned looking wrapper the chocolate is in segments like Whole Nuts and bars like that. You can tell it's Cadburys by the purple wrapper and the chocolate LOOKS like Cadburys when you open it.
There are shedloads of nuts in it and you can see all the bumps on the bottom of the chocolate bar, I reckon you get at least 2 or 3 in each segment and there are a good number of cashews and hazelnuts all mixed in nice.
The chocolate is gorgeous, it's proper Dairy Milk chocolate and melts wicked in your mouth. It's majorly smooth and sweet and when it melts it goes nearly to liquid in your mouth..... yummy!!! The main taste of this chocolate bar I reckon is the hazelnuts and it's got a bit of a Whole Nut taste to it, there's a good amount of cashews in it as well though and that gives the bar a new taste. Cashews are wicked and they're proper fresh in this new chocolate bar, they're in big bits so you can taste them and feel the delish buttery texture of them.
The cashews make it taste like a posher bar of chocolate than a plain Whole Nut and I think it's deffo got a yummy flavour that's loads different from anything else available even though the idea is kind of the same. I think the mixture of cashews and hazlenuts is wicked and the 2 flavours feel proper nice to eat with the creamy milk chocolate.
I reckon this range is going to be mega popular, this cashew and hazlenut bar is dead tasty and a wicked edition to the Dairy Milk range of chocolate bars.
I had been looking for this bar of Chocolate for the last couple of weeks after seeing it in a couple of my magazines. I like to try new items, and especially since they are often on a good enough offer. I finally tracked this down in sainsbury's for sale for £1. I think the right price is somewhere around £1.90, which seems a bit expensive for the bar size, but we'll see. I bought 1 of these ones, liked it a lot so have not got another. Will have to try the other flavours in the range as well.
The pack looks nice enough. It is a matted shiny purple colour, like the Dairy Milk Purple. The lettering on the front looks alright, and the picture of the Chocolate with the hazelnuts and Cashews is nice as well. It looks kind of dreamy and a soft focus. I would expect Willy Wonka Chocolate to look like this.
The bar size is 140g. Not the largerst bar size. Wonder if this will come out in individual bars as well? It would be nice if it did.
You get 24 Squares of Chocolate in the pack. They are all joined together like a Dairy Milk and are 3 squares wide and 8 squares deep.
So how does this taste? Lovely. I love Nutty Chocolate and this doesn't disappoint. It is full of Roasted toasted Hazelnuts and the Cashews seem slightly salted, and also Roasted. There is plenty of them crammed into the bar as well, so the title doesn't lie.
Not that great a Chocolate bar for you. Per 3 chunks this has 95 calories and 5.9g of fat. I managed to scoff the whole bar in 1 evening, so it is easy done.
A great new Chocolate bar that I would urge you to try especially when the offer is on.
