Cadburys, you genius! Over the last couple of years I have found myself reviewing quite a few Cadburys products. Cadburys chocolate is great, but unfortunately quite a lot of Cadburys treats are just normal Cadburys Milk Chocolate in a different shape. So it was great to eat Cadburys Eclairs – FINALLY a bit of variation! […]

Malteesers…. in a bar? On opening this treat, I was slightly repulsed. I like malteesers, I like chocolate in general, but this bar just looks like a really bad attack of some sort of boil-related skin disease. Lumpy, dotty, and in severe need of some ointment from the chemist. But MY GOD it is a […]

Are they milk chocolate in a white coating? Vice Versas were originally around about 20 years ago, I think. I could be wrong. It could have been more recent than that. But you’re not here to read about my fading memory, are you? You’re here to read about treats! They are either a milk chocolate […]

GOLD! Always believe in your sooouulll…. I found these in my fridge. I must have bought them a few months ago and buried them beneath other, more exciting bars. I’ve always associated chocolate coins with cheap chocolate, so I was pleased to see that these were official Cadburys ones. The Chocolate Coins, for those who […]

Revels. Bizarre pieces of chocolate. In each pack of Revels you get a random mix of 6 different types of treat. Each bag contains Maltesers, caramel filled chocolates, chocolate disks, orange filled chocolates, chocolate raisins and coffee flavoured things. People usually buy chocolate because they know they like the taste. But these are the only […]

I should really have eaten these BEFORE Christmas… Cadbury Snow Bites are a bit like Chocolate M%M’s, or Minstrels, in that they are a chocolate centre with a crispy shell. But then, in a bizarre twist, they have a coating of REAL SNOW! No, no I’m just kidding. It isn’t snow, its icing sugar, but […]

Peanuts and chocolate. Again? Peanut M&M’s are a single peanut, coated in chocolate, and encased in a crispy shell. The shells each have a single letter M on them, presumably to differentiate them from other similarly marketed sugar-coated lentil-shaped products. (Yes, “sugar-coated lentil-shaped products” is how they are actually referred to by the people who […]

Nibbles? Caramel? I like BOTH of those! I didn’t know what to expect when I got a packet of Caramel Nibbles. The picture wasn’t too clear. Would they be individual sections of Cadburys Caramel like you get in Cadburys Heroes? Would they be randomly shaped blobs of chocolate with a saramel filling? Surprisingly, they were […]

Mars Planets. Not sure where the “biscuit” ones fit in… Mars Planets are a fun treat. They’re a bit like Revels, but with better flavours. The idea behind Mars Planets seems to be that you can enjoy all the different aspects of a Mars bar, but in ball form. Some of the chocolate balls contain […]

Cadbury Buttons – Compulsory food for the under 5s. Cadbury Buttons have been around for years. I remember eating them when I was a youngster, over 30 years ago. It only occurred to me recently that they are just splats of melted Dairy Milk chocolate. I know this seems blatantly obvious to an onlooker but […]

Aero Green, in spherical form. FINALLY, the Aero team have seem the error of their ways and added the word “Mint” to the Aero Green packaging. (In case you are not familiar with this, the green Aeros don’t actually say “Mint” on them, but people just refer to them as mint because you associate green […]

It’s just Dairy Milk chocolate… They are very nice! You get quite a few in a pack, but I didn’t look to see if you get the equivalent weight as a Dairy Milk bar. I hope you do. It’d be a bit of a con if it cost the same but weighed less, just because […]

Chocolate balls with a shortcake filling. At first glance, these look very much like malteesers. I guarantee, however, that they are not. They are so different in taste and texture, and very different in “claggyness” In case you’re not sure what claggyness is, (and in that it’s either a lesser used word or a word […]

Maltesers are like little bubbles of cruchyness. Whenever I take a photo of the treat I’m eating, I always follow a few rules. Firstly, the photo has to show the treat open in my hand. Secondly, the photo has to be taken at an artistic, slightly tilted angle. Finally, the treat has to be slightly […]

Riesen is one of those strange treats that I don’t think I like, but I do. Inside a pack of Riesen you get 5 individual square chocolates. They are a chocolate coated caramel blocks. The reason I don’t think I like them is because the chocolate is dark chocolate, not milk. But I do like […]

I’d give my last Rolo to me. Rolos are individual pieces of chocolate, a bit like Dairy Milk Chocos, but with a caramel filling, very much unlike Dairy Milk Chocos. The adverts used to centre around giving your last Rolo to a loved one, with the tagline “Do you love anyone enough to give them […]

Take it easy, with Cadburys Caramel. And a rabbit. I thought the most appropriate place to eat a chocolate rabbit would be a field, and so I bring you this review live from a huge area of grass. It only occurred to me after I arrived how insensitive this may actually be. Imagine taking a […]

Galaxy Bites. The new things in shops! Galaxy, or more accurately Mars, is responsible for some of my favourite chocolate. Galaxy Ripple is a heavenly delight, and Minstrels (the original “Melt In Your Mouth, Not In Your Hand” tagline owner,) are a great treat too. So what do Galaxy Bites have to offer? Well….. Chocolate […]
