This Cadbury Curly Wurly came to me via my friend Neil, who’s currently living and working in the Netherlands. I’d had one before during my summer in England, but it somehow never made it onto the blog.
I do believe that the Curly Wurly is named after its crazy loopy shape. It’s comprised of strands of intertwining caramel all covered in milk chocolate.
Alas, mine was a bit broken by the time it made it to me, but that didn’t affect the taste at all – just the Curly Wurly-ness.
The caramel was quite chewy and sticky – as I chomped through the bar, it managed to wind its way into all the nooks and crannies of my teeth. It tasted sweet and butterscotchy.
The chocolate layer was quite thin. It tasted sweet and slightly sour with a light malt flavor and a mild cocoa-ness.
Despite the extra-stickiness of the caramel, I enjoyed the pure caramel + chocolate combination. For a mass produced, check-out aisle-type bar, it was quite good! Taking price point into account, I’d say this deserves an OM.
