“ Brand: Cadbury's „
Cadbury's Roses are the lovely box of chocs that you can either buy for yourself or give as a gift for any occasion. They are nice quality chocolates made by a well-known company, they come in a distinctive box and are not too pricey, which makes them the ideal anytime gift, whether it's a little thank you for looking after the goldfish during your weekend away, or a bit of something extra alongside another little gift.
I have just bought a very small box of these chocolates for just £1 from the local Spar, which fits nicely into the pretty china mug I have bought for my Mum as a small gift. This idea would be suitable for male birthdays and occasions as well as the little distinctive blue box is an exact replica of the standard size box, is much smaller but fits comfortably inside a mug as though made for the job - an ideal little extra that doesn't cost the earth but makes your gift look a bit more special.
The chocolates themselves are individually wrapped and there is a guide to tell you what they are, although they are so popular that everyone probably has their favourite already.
The fillings are quite traditional with lots of creamy ones, nutty ones and fudge or caramel ones to choose from. Ideal for any age in fact. They're perhaps not as posh as a square box of chocs with a tray that fits each one instead of wrappers, but I've yet to meet anyone who hasn't been happy to dive in to this cheerful selection. Enjoy!
Now this is a selection box of chocolates made by Cadburys.
The box is bright blue in colour and has red roses plastered all over it. Along with these you can also see dark blue leaves and stems mixed within them too. The box is tapered being smaller at the bottom and larger at the top.
The box also has a large white label on the front quite close toward the top, on this label in a very dark blue is the name of the chocolates, Cadbury Roses. Easy to read and see.
Now on the side of the box you will be able to read all the GDA's and the ingredients.
The back of the box shows you the chocolate contents and shows their names as well so you know what you are either getting or looking for.

Cadbury Roses are really a treat to have. I was lucky enough to have been given a box this week and such a treat to have. I like the way how the type od chocolates are colour coded. The purple wrapper ones cadbury milk chocolate, hazel in caramel and hazel whirl which are really lovely and perhaps the ones I do like the best.The green wrapper one is Caramel velvet, red one is brazillian darkness tany orange crem has orange wrapper coffee brown colour is country fudge and the pink one is the strawberry creme and the blue wrapper is the caramel flavour chocolate. There is plenty of variety to suit all tastes ideal for all the family. The size which I have is 388g which I think is a great size for the family to share.
The packaging is bright and colourful blue background and yes covered with red roses hasten the name Roses.
The cost is around £3.50 which seems a fair price for a box of chocolates.
I adore Cadbury's Chocolate Roses. I don't have very often but they are divine for an occassional treat. Anything Cadbury's is a delight, they are a very popular brand. So why have them ?
If your stuck for a birthday present or christmas present then Cadbury's Roses is the answer. You can get either a box of Roses that cost around £3.49 depending which shop you went to, or you can get the huge tin of Roses for around £9.99, although around Christmas time they are £5.99 or 2 for £10. I think all except one in the box are very tasty and worth the money, it's fantastic for a one-off.
Let me tell you whats in the box...
Strawberry - My favourites- wrapped in a pink foiled wrapper, this is basically chocolate with strawberry flavouring inside, really delicious.
Hazel Caramel - This is wrapped in a purple wrapper, tasty caramel with an hazel nut in the middle, i tend to eat round it and spit the nut out.
Caramel - i think this is in a blue or yellow wrapper and i adore it, a bit hard but i love caramels.
Orange Creme - like the strawberry, chocoalte with orange flavour and is wrapped up in a orange wrapper, a little square shape, i love how the orange just comes out at you when you bite. Very nice !
Orange Crisp -I'm not that keen on these,i tend ot leave them til last. basically a chocolate with orange crisp inside.
Brazilian Darkness - ohhh these are absolutely gorgeous, i eat these first. Wrapped in a red wrapper, and is like a square not as hard as the caramels once biting it softens in your mouth and you taste the brazilan chooalte nuts inside, very tasty and chewy !
Golden Barrel - this is wrapped in a golden foil this is a very soft caramel, a bite and its gone though, very little, but nice.
Chocolate Bite - like the orange crisp, this comes next to last, its in a pink wrapper and is a chocolate with crispy nuts inside.
Cadbury Dairy Milk - purple wrapper, and is a hard piece of dairy milk chocolate.
Caramel Velvet - wrapped in greenish wrapper, another caramel filled chocolate.
Caramel Fudge - i don't much care for fudge i think they can be quite sweet. But it's wrapped in gold and just like the real fudge bar.
Cadbury's Roses are a great treatt for anyone so i do recommend them.
As they advert used to say - say it with roses - and i can still remember the thankyou very much for...... tune. Having received a few boxes of these for christmas I decided to try out each flavour in order to give the best review i can - hard for me i know!!
Made by chocolate giant cadbury these currently cost £3.21 for 441g of individually wrapped pieces of heaven. We won't be buying these if on a health kick so suffice to say they are high in everything that is no good for you - calories, sugar etc - but oh boy are they worth it.
The types and tastes
Hazel Whirl - my absolute favourite and there was defiantely the least amount of these in the box! - Wrapped in a purple wrapper with orange ends these are round and textured solid pieces of chocolate with a hazelnut in the middle
Cadbury Dairy Milk - rectangular solid piece of pure cadbury dairy milk chocolate in a purple wrapper
Golden Barrel - Gold wrapper surrounding a squashed circle type chocolate which when bitten into reveals a soft caramel ooze
Chocolate Bite - Bright pink wrapper containing solid chocolate with nuts and a crispiness - so it has a nice edge to it
Caramel Velvet - green wrapper surrounding another caramel tasting and oozing chocolate
Brazilian Darkness - mainly red wrapper with yellow tips this squarish treat has chocolate covering a hard toffee with brazil nuts - this is a very chewy treat and a bit hard work
Tangy Orange Creme - An orange wrapper over a square of chocolate with orange creme centre - unfortunately i'm not keen on orange or strawberry centred chocolates so one of my least favourites - for those of you who like that tho it is very orangy
Hazel Caramel - Purple wrapper, my second favourite chocolate - soft chocolate, caramel and a hazelnut - bliss
Orange Crisp - rectangular chocolate wrapped in orange, surprisingly nice for someone like me who isn't keen on orange chocolate creme - this has a different texture though as there is no oozing of anything its a crispy tasting choc orange yum treat.
Caramel - wrapped in blue this one is the most boring - no real taste and it is too hard - like a boring toffee covered in chocolate (still managed to eat 3 of them somehow though!)
Strawberry Dream - in pink wrapping this is the same as orange creme but with strawberry filling - not to my taste but not horrible!
Caramel Fudge - ranking among the top 3 this is basically a small version of a fudge bar wrapped in gold - very scrumptious chocolate covering a thick piece of fudge
