Cadbury Caramel Bunnies
Advantages: Cute, tasty
Disadvantages: Calories! Not unusual
I've sampled quite a few small Easter treats this year, including the Lindt Lindor truffle egg and the Malteaster bunny, but I've not been very impressed with any of them. However this set of Caramel Bunnies from Cadbury's was a pleasant surprise and hops into the lead ahead of both the aforementioned items, with a healthy four stars.
The caramel bunnies come packaged in yellow and purple wrappers, giving them an unmistakably Cadbury's appearance. Each packet contains two bunnies, which means they are lovely for sharing with a partner, buying for two children, or overindulging in all by yourself!
A packet of two bunnies usually costs around 59 pence before Easter, though I frequently saw them on 2 for £1 offers, including both these and the Malteaster bunnies. After Easter, if you can still find them, you will only have to pay around half price depending on the store. Asda currently have them on sale for around 30 pence.
When you open the packet, you find two adorable little chocolate bunnies. They are quite narrow and short but they are satisfyingly deep and chunky. They have very cute etchings on them including fluttery eyelashes and little bow ties, which make them much cuter than the plain Malteaster bunnies and even the plain Lindt bunnies.
Biting into one of the bunnies is a nice experience. The chocolate is not too thick and there is plenty of lovely, sweet, gooey caramel inside. I sometimes find Cadbury's chocolate tastes a bit basic or sweet, but when mixed with caramel it is really good. The bunny tastes a lot like a Cadbury's caramel bar or like the caramel Roses chocolates.
Because there is so much caramel I find that one bunny is usually satisfying and sweet enough for me and I can restrain myself from having the second one too, however some people might find this too hard!
Each bunny contains exactly 100 calories, plus 9.8 grams of sugar, 5.3 grams of fat and 3.2 grams of saturates. Not the end of the world if you're only eating them once a year!
These are a nice little Easter product and although they don't rock my world, I've enjoyed them and I'll probably buy a packet or two next year as well!
Summary: Sweet in every meaning of the word
