CADBURY has introduced a wild new chocolate bar collaboration with a top chef – and shoppers are divided over the unique flavour.
The limited-edition Raspberry and Hazelnut Tart bar is flying off the shelves in Australia – but chocolate fans are split on whether to love it or hate it.
The chocolate makers teamed up with Michelin-starred chef Curtis Stone to create the new bar that hit the Aussie market in mid-June.
It's Cadbury's second collaboration with the celebrity chef after the much talked about Caramel Slice Dairy Milk – another chocolate block that divided eaters.
The new flavours are inspired by Stone's family hazelnut and raspberry tart recipe and hopes to be a mixture of sweet, tangy and nutty.
“It’s how this block came to mind – one loves raspberry and one loves hazelnut, so it was a no-brainer to combine the two in creating a recipe that’s very close to my heart," he told Taste.

However, not all Cadbury-lovers are all sold.
The man behind the popular food review TikTok account @Russ.Eats branded it a five out of ten.
"It tastes like it belongs in a box of roses, which isn't a good thing.
"It's real jam-like, like a rich raspberry, the hazelnuts do balance it out but it's not working for me," he said.

A fellow TikTok reviewer, Mark Polchleb, was a little kinder to the new chocolate bar.
"Instantly I can see this oozy raspberry sauce and its straight away giving desert vibes. It does overpower the hazelnut a little but there's plenty of hazelnut in it.
"Its a pretty unique combination and I enjoyed it," he said smiling.
In response to Cadbury's Instagram launch of the bar, online users flocked to the comments to share their divisive thoughts.
One wrote: "Sorry not a fan – raspberry filling is too sickly sweet. Flavour needs more balance."
However, another offered: "Absolutely love it. Hope it stays as part of the regular range."
A third said: "Yea, it's nice. But not a revelation."
"It's divine," wrote a fourth.
It comes as Cadbury has also launched a new chocolate bar inspired by a beloved Aussie bakery treat.
The Vanilla Passionfruit Dairy Milk Bar is the latest addition to Cadbury's SLICES range, currently only available in Australia.
Also Down Under, Cadbury sent chocolate fans wild after launching a brand new Twirl bar.
The Twirl Honeycomb Sundae flavour has been raved about on Aussie social media, but again doesn't seem be available in the UK or elsewhere yet.
Last year, Cadbury UK launched a limited edition caramel flavour, which was wrapped into the velvety layers of the chocolate bar.

The company also launched two mystery flavoured chocolate bars last summer, which sent British fans crazy as thousands tried to identify the flavours.
The first flavour was rhubarb and custard, while the second was blue raspberry slushie and two lucky winners scooped £5,000 each.
