CADBURY has finally confirmed the flavours of its mystery bars after eager Brits spent months guessing. The chocolate company released the two bars earlier this year as thousands debated what they could taste when they bit into the sweet slab.

And if you gave the bars a try and thought you were sensing hints of rhubarb and custard, and blue raspberry slushie, you were right.
Cadbury today revealed the two mystery flavours and said it will soon draw two lucky prize winners from those who guessed correctly.
Brits had the opportunity to submit their guesses to be in to win the mystery prizes worth £5,000.
More than 300,000 people took part in the competition, but only 6,861 people guessed the flavours of the two bars correctly.
Pippa Rodgers, Cadbury brand manager said: “We have been blown away by the widespread excitement and conversation around the Cadbury Mystery Bars competition.
“It has been difficult trying to keep the flavours under wraps over summer, so we are delighted to be revealing the flavours to the nation and can’t wait to hear how excited our two lucky prize winners are!”
London locals submitted the highest number of correct guesses, with Birmingham and Manchester coming in together at second place.
And when it came to incorrect guesses, there was a real variety.
