Cadbury Cherry Ripe Chocettes

Cadbury Cherry Ripe Chocettes

“Now with even more cherries”! Bite sized pieces of ripe juicy cherries and coconut in ‘Old Gold’ rich dark chocolate. This sounds promising, at last I may find myself reviewing a chocolate bar I genuinely like, as it feels like it’s been awhile since I have.

This comes from Australia, which so far hasn’t impressed me with its vast amounts of chocolate. Cherry chocolate is a rare thing, and with delicious coconut, I’m really looking forward to this.

The pack is of course red, with lots of little chocettes on the front, the pack is only half full which annoys me a little. But I’ll ignore that. And why am I ignoring it? Because the chocolate is good, that’s why.

Yes, I’m willing to overlook the half full bag because I actually like these, they’re a little strange in their texture, with the chewy coconut, and the cherry taste, but they go together very well. And with the dark chocolate aftertaste, I’m really impressed with these.

You don’t get many for what you pay for, or at least for what I paid for, as the pack is only 35g which is quite small, and they’re very more-ish. What I will say though is that it’s refreshing to not see Sugar at the top of an ingredients list, instead it’s down below the chocolate and coconut. These are really good, easily the best thing I’ve tasted from Australia so far.

Leave the chocettes alone and get the bars instead. Pretty much the right size though I do know people who like the king sized ones.

I didn’t even know they did a bar. How is it made? Just a big bar with a layer of coconut and cherries thrown in?

It is kinda like a Bounty in structure. Medium thick layer of the cherry cocnut filling with a nice coating of the chocolate.

Ah, I see. That sounds pretty good. Well if I ever see it I’ll give it a go because I was very impressed with these.

Is it possible to purchase Cherry Ripe chocolate bars in Canada?

Cherry Ripe in it’s original form is only available in Australia. The original makers were MacRobertson Chocolates located in Fitzroy, Melbourne which were bought out by Cadburys during the 80s. Cherry Ripe is much loved & uniquely Australian as are Tim Tams (try these beauties)!!
