Moo Free Mikey Scrummy Caramel Bunny Review
I brought the Moo Free Mikey Scrummy Caramel Bunny on a whim, and because I was doing my monthly Tesco order for foods I can’t find elsewhere, and needed to reach the £40 minimum. I thought, what the hell, it’s new to me and £2.50!
And boy, I was surprised! I’ve tasted all bar the caramel Moo Free bars – mostly because I didn’t know they did a caramel one!
First of all I’m really pleased to see fun easter treats making their way to shelves – it’s the first year I’ve seen bunnies and eggs, and I LOVE it! I love the bunny shape, and eating it brings joy.

Smell, Taste & Texture
The smell was absent, but since there’s quite a high concentrate of oils I never really expect a smell with Moo Free chocolates.
The taste was so much better than I expected! Caramel is one of those flavours that is VERY hit or miss, and this one was pretty much a hit! Though the flavour in the Moo Free Mikey Scrummy Caramel Bunny hit a little late, and was more prounounced after swallowing the main bit of chocolate. After that flavour hit it tasted really reach, and the two combined (because we all know I didn’t just take one bite and that was it) was a good mix of rich caramel that wasn’t too overpowering. Moo Free struck the right balance!
The texture of the Moo Free Mikey Scrummy Caramel Bunny was okay … it reminded me almost like powdered sugar as there was a slight grain to it. I don’t know if that’s just because of that shape, or what it’s normally like so it would be interesting to compare. It seemed as though the bunny melted at a lower temp that the bars – though that could just be because the chocolat seems really thin!
Moo Free Mikey Scrummy Caramel Bunny is not my favourite Moo Free chocolate flavours, BUT it is one I would eat again … even in this shape. If I see it in a store I’d pick it up, but I’d still probably go for NOMO over Moo Free for a caramel flavour.
