Review: Dorset Cereals Choc Macadamia Bars

Vegan chocolate cereal bars from the people at Dorset Cereals, the premium breakfast muesli makers. These cereal bars are billed as 'decadently chocolatey' and are just under 10% chocolate. Rather than being a chocolate-coated cereal bar, these have the chocolate mixed with the cereals throughout the bar. The presentation of Dorset Cereals products is great...lots of shelf appeal...but do these bars justify their premium billing?

We love the little peepholes on the boxes...and the clear wrappers on the get a good idea of what you're getting before you buy. You can see just how dark these bars are, and you won't be disappointed if you're a dark chocolate lover...they are very dark indeed. That's not to say they're bitter, having just enough sweetness for the decadence factor.

The oats and wheat flakes are pretty chewy, rather than being crispy. The raisins and macadamia nuts are in nice big pieces...the crunch of a macadamia being the best bit of these bars. The bars are ample sized and being so rich you might just enjoy sharing one.

These are cereal bars for grown-ups rather than kids, and we really like fact we've been back for a couple more boxes already!

Verdict: Cereals-ly good!

Footnote: Ingredients
Here is the ingredients panel from the pack we reviewed.

Note: We contacted Dorset Cereals to question the statement on their website that these bars contain butter and are therefore not vegan. The makers confirmed that the bars are vegan, they do NOT contain butter and the website is incorrect.
