Cadbury's fudge is just not on par with any other chocolate within its price range- there I said it. Especially seen as the price of the fudge has risen to 25p, which in my book is pretty steep given the current economic downturn (F. Figari et al, 2011). When you throw another 35-40p in the mix you can get chocolate of a higher standard and quantity - given you shop around and avoid overpriced stores.
Let us first look at the packaging which is essentially the poorest component of the Cadbury's fudge. The fudge is frankly packed too loosely and this gives the impression, that their is far more fudge than the unbeknownst customer is purchasing. False advertising? I think so. The quality of the chocolate is of Cadbury's usual standard, however the layer is so thin that even the least sweet toothed of our ever growing population (think waist line not immigrants) can't grasp enough chocolate flavour to give it a thorough intellectual roasting.
Finally after the paper thin chocolate, we find ourselves at the supposed key component, the fudge. Whilst the flavour of the fudge might impress a small child who's palate has not yet appreciated true fudge,it does not impress a man who's palate understands the full spectrum of culinary delight which the world has to offer (e.g. not limited to pot noodles and monster munch - no judgment intended). It's waxy texture is reminiscent of plasticine and the flavour leaves much to be desired, infact i'd say anyone who enjoys this **** (excuse my french, as my readers will know I don't often swear, this is a testiment to how poor the quality of the product is) would probably enjoy plasticine more!
In conclusion if you find yourself weighed down to by 25p keep it in your pocket and wait until you accrue enough change to get yourself something worth consuming to increase your risk of type 2 diabetes( J Montonen, P Knekt, T Härkänen, 2005)
