Which element can we taste majorly, or are all of them present equally? Are all the elements in harmony with each other? Which flavor is the most dominant – nuts, chocolate or something else?
When we scrutinized the ingredient list, we imagined a vast and varied texture profile on this bar. Made with nuts, rice crispies, and chocolate, have the ingredients retained their original textures? Collectively what is the texture of the bar?

Cadbury Fuse Fit is a nut-loaded snack bar that has 50% nuts. Unlike other nut-based snack bars, this had separate layers. A milk chocolate base topped with nuts and honey-drizzled rice crispies.
Let’s further decode the taste and texture. The almonds and peanuts lend nutty (and slightly salted) flavors that compliments the milk chocolate sweetness really well.
In terms of texture, there’s a delectable interplay of nuts, crispies and chocolate. Whole almonds have been used that bring a chunky bite to this snack bar. The peanut bits add a bite but aren’t as crunchy as almonds. That said, both nuts taste fresh! The honey glaze adds positively to the appearance as well as taste.
Next come the rice crispies. Prepared with rice flour, refined wheat flour, salt, and sugar, we expected crispy and crunchy rice balls. To our surprise, these had turned soggy and did not retain the crunch. Instead, they had a very chewy bite. This snack bar is crunchy and chewy at the same time!
Overall, the crunchy nuts, the smooth chocolate base along with slightly soggy rice crispies, make for a tasty snack bar.

Crunchy, chewy, and nutty- all paired in one chocolatey snack bar, Cadbury Fuse Fit is a decadent (but occasional) delight! A milk chocolate base topped with honey-glazed nuts on a bed of rice crispies, this bar can make for a super filling snack. But if only the rice crispies were crispy this would’ve been a collective favorite.
That said, though this bar offers significantly more protein than other commercially available chocolates, we wouldn’t recommend consuming this every day due to the large quantity of refined sugar it contains.
The Fuse chocolate range was launched in 2016, have you tried it yet?
