Welcome to Day #2 of Cadbury Chocolate Theme Week.
This Cadbury Picnic candy bar/chocolate bar (from Mondelez International) was stuffed with peanuts, a sort of chewy, crunchy, caramely nougat with raisins somewhere in the mix; and it was covered with milk chocolate.
It was a handy bar to bring along on a hike near San Francisco bay and a climb up a mountain to see a great view after, you guessed it, a short picnic lunch.
The Cadbury Picnic bar was launched in the U.K. in 1958, and decades later (around 2000) was marketed as being "Deliciously ugly." Today's tagline read: "Shake it up with Picnic." How about "Enjoy a great view with Picnic?"
