      Smooth and creamy and delicious

      Well, I do love an excuse, any old excuse, to write a review about some chocolate treat or other :)

      I was over at Tesco last night looking to pick up some treats for a night in with a dvd and a bottle of wine, when I saw these.

      They come in a kind of pouch rather than a packet, the pouch is Cadbury's classic purple colour which is easily identifyable, but then the middle of the pouch is yellow, to make you think of the caramel.

      This 160g pouch retails at £2 but at the moment (and this is what tempted me" a range of these Cadbury pouch bags are selling for 2 for £3.

      Insider the caramel nibbles look very much like giant buttons, they are a nice size to be able to eat either one at a time and savour them (like I do) or grab a handful and stuff them all in (like him indoors does)

      The caramel inside is soft and not chewy. You get a nice amount of caramel inside, you know that you've had a bite of caramel, it isn't just a hint. Overall these treats are lovely - not too sickly and the caramel really does make a nice change from just having plain chocolate all the time.

      The 160g bag is too much for one sitting, even for two little piggies like us, so fortunately these pouches come in resealable bags.

      Lovely product and especially on special offer!

        Disadvantages

        Even if you only try them once - do it!

        If you are a chocolate lover, and you like caramel, then this product is the one for you. When I purchased these, I was ready to be disappointed by the amount of caramel included....how wrong was i? There is more than enough caramel in each nibble to satisfy your cravings, and the chocolate just melts in your mouth. These pieces of heaven are great to share or if you can handle them, all by yourself!

        Now, they are quite expensive for the amount you get (in my own personal opinion), however, as a one off or as a special purchase, you can't really complain. Even better was the fact the my local Morrisons store had them at 93p per bag, which is a bargain! If only they were that price all the time!

        INGREDIENTS
        Milk chocolate (Milk, Sugar, Cocoa butter, Cocoa mass, Vegetable fat, Emulsifier (E442), Flavourings), Caramel (25%) (Glucose syrup, Invert sugar syrup, Vegetable oil, Sugar, Dried whey, Salt, Flavourings).

        ALLERGEN INFORMATION
        CONTAINS: MILK. MAY CONTAIN: NUTS.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          They make a change from just plain old chocolate.

          I love chocolate and I love caramel so Cadbury's Caramel Nibbles should put me into a chocolate / caramel coma of pleasure, but sadly they don't. Don't get me wrong I do like them, but there's something not quite right with them.

          They come in a resealable bag, you rip the top off along the perforated line and there's a handy sticker attached which you use to seal the bag when you've had enough, not that it get's used that often in our house. There's the usual information about ingredients / calories etc on the back of the bag, but personally when it comes to chocolate I'm not interested. When you open the bag you are greeted with a host of thick chocolate buttons about the size of a 10p and about half as thick again as the 10p and slightly domed. When you bite into one of the buttons, there's a thin layer of runny caramel, it's much runnier than that in the caramel bar and it's very sweet. In fact you can't really taste the chocolate, the caramel seems to over power it, eventhough it is Cadbury's Dairy Milk. The chocolate its self is also not as good as plain good old fashioned Dairy Milk, it's got more of a chemical taste to it and it's not as creamy as usual, which is possibly why the caramel over powers it somewhat.

          I only tend to buy these occassionally when they're on offer for £1 for a 160g bag, they're a stop gap for my chocolate habit when there's nothing else on offer and only chocolate will do. Yes I know there are other chocolates out there filled with caramel, but deep down I'm a Cadbury's girl at heart.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A nice chocolate treat with a caramel filling

          I never need asking twice to sample a new chocolate, so I was pleased to try some Dairy Milk Caramel Nibbles when my friend bought me a packet. They were labelled as "new" but I think that the chocolates have actually been around for a little while in the sharing bag format. I tried the small individual serving bag size at first - there isn't a weight given on the bag, but think of it like a small Maltesers or Minstrels type packet. She purchased the chocolates in Boots, where they cost 65p. I have since bought the larger bags which work out as better value and they are re-sealable too which is handy. Both packs are bright yellow with purple edges so they do stand out amongst the other chocolates in the supermarket.


          The nibbles are described as "milk chocolates with a caramel centre." They remind me of large chocolate buttons that happed to be fillled with caramel. That is how they look, although naturally they are thicker. I like Dairy Milk chocolate, even if Galaxy remains my favourite. I did wonder if proper Dairy Milk would be used to make these as sometimes I think twists on original sweets seem to skimp on the quality of the chocolate. These taste exactly like the bars tthough, and they smell just as nice too. The chocolate is smooth and creamy, although the caramel is dominant. The filling is of the soft and slightly chewy kind, rather than the hard type of caramel, which makes them much easier to eat. It is sweet and well flavoured, and combines beautifullly with the chocolate. If I could change anything, I would make the chocolate a bit thicker, so there was more of it in relation to the caramel. But I am not going to complain that the caramel is plentiful! I do find them on the sweet side, and I actually didn't want to eat a whole one of the small packets at once. I thought that they were getting a bit sickly after 3 or 4. The fact the chocolates are in bite sized pieces means it is easy to pick at them through the day though, so there was no danger of any going to waste!


          As soon as I tried these, I thought that the chocolates would make a good cake decoration. When I had bought a sharing bag, I reserved some back to decorate a few chocolate cupcakes. They were just the right size to sit on top, and as no-one knew they contained caramel, they gave a nice surprise to my taste testers when they bit into them. I can also see them working as a quick way to decorate a larger cake. My local cook shop sells something very similar for more money simply because it is especially labelled as for use to decorate cupcakes.


          As a chocolate product, I don't expect these treats to be healthy or low fat. They certainly aren't one for dieters because even just the small individual bag contains 30.5% of your recommended RDA of saturated fat, which is no small amount. The sugar level is 23.3% of your RDA. I approach any chocolate as something to be indulged in every so often, when I have otherwise fiollowed a healthy and low fat diet that day. As such, I am happy to eat these Nibbles, but they won't be something I buy every week.


          I recommend them to any lovers of chocolate and caramel, although I marginally prefer the Dairy milk Carmel bars as I think you get a bit more chocolate in every bite. These are still tasty though, and I will buy them every so often as a change. They are suitable for vegetarians.

          A nice little treat!

          The other night, I was in a bit of chocolate mood and fancied something I could really get my teeth into. So I bought some of these Dairy Milk Caramel Nibbles from my local shop for around £1.40.

          To look at, the buttons look exactly like the Dairy Milk Giant Buttons. They are the same size as a 10p piece. They don't look very exciting to be honest...but wait until you taste them!

          I pop one in my mouth and I am greeted with a lovely and smooth button shaped piece of chocolate. The chocolate is very sweet and creamy with a smooth texture. I bite into it and that is when the soft and gooey caramel is released. Mmm! It tastes like heaven.

          A quarter of a bag will set you back 215 calories and 2.5g of protein. There is 26.1g of carbohydrates per ¼ of a bag and 11.3g of fat. So all in all, I think its clear to see that these buttons won't do your waistline any good.

          The bag is resealable although if I am honest, I find it hard not to eat them all in one go and so I only every have them as an occasional treat. Having said that, I do find that they do become quite sickly after a while...but still I just can't stop! They're good for sharing too...although you don't really want to be doing that, do you?

          I would definitely recommend these - they go great with a cuppa!
          Thanks for reading!

            A good mix of caramel and buttons

            In recent years, Cadbury's have been looking at ways to expand on their range of products, building on its popular brands and this includes Caramel. Since coming under the Dairy Milk umbrella, Caramel has a mini egg (like Creme Eggs) and biscuit version. Now there is Caramel Nibbles.

            Caramel Nibbles takes the normal Caramel bar and puts into little bite-size pieces in a bag. The best way to describe what the product is like is imagining taking a bag of Cadbury's Buttons and inserting caramel in the middle of each button. By doing this, it makes the Button a more enjoyable snack.

            The products comes in different size bags with a 100g bag usually retailing at 99p/£1 in most shops, which may just be too much for what is on offer, but only just. For those who may find it a bit on the expensive side then B&M will have them for 69p and Home Bargains for a very reasonably priced 39p or 49p, which makes it more appealing. Bigger sizes are available at a higher price.

            So, for those people who enjoy their caramel chocolate but prefer a bag to a bar or for those who are looking for a bit more caramel chocolate, then this is a product that is for you.

            Nice way to eat caramel and milk chocolate together

            I have just eaten a small bag of Caramel Nibbles from Cadbury, I was pretty sure I would like them as I really appreciate the regular bars of Milk chocolate with caramel in from this brand. The bag cost me just less than sixty pence which follows the same colour scheme and has a similar design to that of the bars.

            The nibbles as it were are like large chocolate buttons and when you bite in to them you find the soft caramel that Cadbury are famous for. It really is a delicious blend and combination and gives the impression of pure luxury. These would be ideal for all ages as they are quite soft as long as you have not stored them in a fridge for a while and so become hard, difficult for some teeth to deal with. I can imagine these would be perfect for a trip to the cinema or for eating in front of the television at home whilst watching a film. Although I don't really make them I think these would be quite useful in decorating cakes in the same way that you would use jelly sweets or hundreds and thousands.

            A small bag of these did not take me that long to finish but it does contain 195 calories and 10.1g of fat which is not as much as some sweet and chocolate products I have eaten so iif you ate a whole bag of these all in one go it might not be the end of the world but if you are watching your intake and you have amazing self control you could always eat a few or half the bag and save the rest for another time.

            If you like the traditional Cadbury's caramel you will definitely enjoy these, another good product from the well known brand.

            A delicious treat

            I wasn't the biggest fan of Dairy Milk Caramel bars, but when I tried these, the caramel in the nibbles version I was converted. I just love these! Each pack contains lots of little nibble bits, which are basically like a chocolate button but with a caramel centre. I like the way you can bite into the nibble, and bite into the caramel and then eat the second part. I think it is good that each nibble is big enough to take a couple of bites. The serving in the bag is also quite generous, and I feel you get quite a lot for your money.

            These are normally around £1.99 for a 175g bag but they are regularly on offer such as two for £2 or £1 each as I saw in Sainsburys recently. However, it isn't good when they are offer for me as it makes me buy them and eat too many! I think this is a good price, and they are ideal for a night in or for a party. It is good the way you can tear off the top of the bag and reseal it to eat another time. However I find this quite hard to do as they are so addictive.

            Per a quarter of bag there is 215 calories and 11g of fat, so not too bad if you are sharing with other people. You can also get them in smaller individual packs which are good for me as I don't eat as many as it is a smaller bag!

            The cocoa in all Cadbury's chocolate is sustainably sourced now, which makes me like the brand even more. If you haven't tried these, I definitely would as they are really tasty but be warned - you may become addicted!

              Disadvantages

              A nice bag of chocolate to share

              It doesn't matter when my husband pops to the shop for me he always comes home with something extra that's not on the list. The last time it was a bag of Cadburys Caramel Nibbles , he thought we could just eat a few at a time!!! Dream on!.

              Caramel Nibbles are like dairy milk buttons with a caramel centre, posh chocolate buttons if you like. They come in a re sealable 175g bag which costs £1.99 but is currently on offer for £1.33, not bad considering the price of chocolate bars. This is in the Cadburys purple colour and the yellow colour from Cadbury Caramel, no sign of the cute lady bunny though, where did she go? The Cadbury Dairy Milk logo is on the front of the pack along with the words Caramel Nibbles and a picture of a little pile of the chocolates. It also informs the customer to be "treat wise" and says that 1/4 of a bag contains 215 calories. The rest of the GDA's are given on the back of the pack, these too are for 1/4 of a bag:-
              Sugars 23.3
              Fat 11.3g
              Saturates 6.8g
              Salt 0.15g
              There is more detailed nutrional advice for those who are interested. The back of the bag also gives the ingredients and instructions for re sealing it. There is a small warning stating that the nibbles contain milk, soya and may contain nuts. These nibbles are suitable for vegetarians.

              When openingthe bag the smell is sweet and definitely Cadbury. The little caramel nibbles are about the same size as Cadbury buttons but a bit fatter where they are filled with caramel. They taste absolutely delicious, the chocolate is creamy, sweet and smooth and the caramel is rich, soft and gooey. These are totally moreish, there's no way we were just going to eat a few. If you like Cadbury Caramel bars you will love these.

              The idea of eating a few and re sealing is ideal if you are very strong willed or if you are giving them to children a few each day, unfortunately we didn't do this and consumed the whole bag over the evening. These nibbles are sweet but not at all sickly, they would make a nice cake decoration or a nice addition to ice cream.

              I would certainly recommend the Cadbury Caramel Nibbles, they make a nice treat and you do have the option of saving some for another day. Cadburys do a variety of their chocolate bars in these type packs and in my opinion they are worth the money. If you are a Cadbury fan or just love chocolate then give these a try you wont be disappointed.

                Disadvantages

                A bag full of small pieces of heaven

                Since I decided to try and be healthy to tone my 'problem' areas, I have found I've never been offered so many nice items of food. These were flying round our office yesterday, and due to being bored and having hours to go before it was time to go home I gave in and had a couple (that's a lie, I had several!). I'd never had these before but I like Cadburys Caramel bars so figured they would taste pretty much the same.

                The nibbles come in a small bag which has the same yellow and purple design as the Cadbury Caramel chocolate bar. The bag doesn't seal back up once it's open, but that's only a problem if you have anything resembling willpower. The bags weigh 175g and cost around £2 unless you find them on offer. I think they're good value though because psychologically it seems that the bag lasts a while because the nibbles are only small bite-sized pieces, and they are good for sharing.

                Which brings me on to the nibbles themselves.....I would describe these as bite-sized pieces of chocolatey caramel heaven. They taste slightly different to Cadbury Caramel bars because of the chocolate to caramel ratio being different. This would be more suitable if you didn't have as much of a sweet tooth, as there's less caramel. They look like large chocolate buttons in shape only slightly bigger. They taste a bit like chocolate buttons, but with a melt-in-the-mouth caramel centre (I should be on commission for these!).

                The good thing about these is that you can eat as few or as many as you want, so you get the same chocolate 'hit' but without the calories (if you choose to only have a few). I have noticed recently that they are also available in individual bag sizes (similar to maltesers) so if you just fancied a bag for yourself or you don't want the temptation of a big bag in the house, these are a good alternative. They cost around 50p for a 39g bag.

                The nutrition content is as you'd expect, for quarter of a 175g bag (i.e. just over 43g), there are 215 calories, 23g sugar, 11g fat, 7g saturates and 0.2g salt. EEK! At least it's low on salt.....

                All in all, a very addictive snack. Only buy the big bags if you have someone to share them with!!

                good tasty chocolates, but hard not to eat the entire bag in one sitting!!

                IM always after a chocolate fix but not often will i eat it in large amounts, which is why i find 'handy bags' useful.

                I have eaten the cadbury clusters before (they are very yummy) and thought id try these DAIRY MILK CARAMEL NIBBLES.

                These nibbles are presented in a 175g bacg with the classic cadbury purple on the packakgng. ON the front is the logo of the Nibbles with a picture of a few of them, with the obligatory open one with caramel oozing out, a very catchy enticing advertising campaign. The logo itself is encased with the yellow that you find on the 'caramel bars', keeping with the theme.

                On the back of the packaging, there is the usual nutritional information for both 100g and a 1/4 of the bag (if you are very disciplined and only eat a few). The best before date, which in my opinion is quite long, around 9 months on the packet that i bought. These bags can be re-sealed and the packaging has diagramof how to do this?! I must note that there is a lovely little symbol that states that these yummy chocolates are suitable for vegetarians, always a bonus for you non meat eaters.

                The chocolates themselves are disc shaped around the size of a 10p in all. There is a crisp outer layer of chocolate with a silk lke caramel inside. If you were not aware of what was in your mouth, you could be eating the caramel bars, the taste is pretty identical. I found these chocolate melt in the mouth, very moorish and it is very hard to eat these one at a time as they are on the small side.

                Ironically, the bag is re-sealable but i have never bought a bag of these or the clusters and been able to leave some, re-seal them and pop them in the fridge?!

                Due to the size of the bag (around 18cm tall), they are small enough to pop in your bag and therefore ideal for the cinema or sharing at a social engagement.

                At aroung £1.49 a bag, they are not overly cheap, but a tasty sharing bag of chocolate.

                Big Buttons filled with soft caramel!

                ***CADBURY CARAMEL NIBBLES***
                I saw a big poster for these when I was walking to work one day and I love Cadbury caramel so just had to find these and try them out. Caramel Nibbles are made by Cadbury and they are a yummy combination of Cadbury milk chocolate and smooth caramel. They are small nibbles for you to just pop into your mouth and enjoy. I personally think these are a great idea especially if you are a fan of Cadbury caramel. You can now enjoy your favourite movie whilst eating chocolate and caramel nibbles.

                ***PRICE/AVALIABILITY***
                I got my packet of nibbles form boots which cost me £1.80 which may sound on the expensive side but you do get 175g in the bag and they are well worth paying the price for, believe me! I haven't seen these anywhere else, but no doubt they will be popping up in local supermarkets and some local shops too!

                ***NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION***
                Each ¼ bag contains the following:

                * Calories - 215 (10.8%)
                * Sugars - 23.3g (25.9%)
                * Fat - 11.3g (16.1%)
                * Saturates - 6.8g (34%)
                * Salt - 0.15g (2.5%)

                Contains: Milk and may contain Nuts and Soya.

                ***APPEARANCE/SMELL***
                These sweet treats come in a purple and yellow bag and have the old style caramel writing on the front which was used on the earlier caramel bars which featured the brown rabbit. The bag is reclosable which helps to keep the nibbles fresh. When opening the bag and taking a look inside you can see lots of little chocolate treats which look just like Cadbury buttons. These are bigger than button and are about the size of a 2p. As you peer into the bag you can smell a lovely milk chocolatey smell.

                ***TASTE TEST***
                As you bite into the chocolate nibble your teeth will sink into the yummy smooth and soft caramel which tastes so creamy and nice with the Cadbury milk chocolate. After eating one of these I immediately wanted to scoff some more. I'm a huge fan of Cadbury buttons but Cadbury buttons with added caramel . . . heaven! These do get quite sickly after a while as I found out after scoffing hand-fuls of these. These are lovely little treats to share or to just eat on your own and with the reclosable bag you can save some for later, if you manage not to eat the whole bag!

                ***OVERALL OPINION***
                For me, these are just truly amazing and I love them. They are really, really more-ish and can get very sickly but they are just so nice and the caramel and chocolate taste so yummy and creamy together. The bag they come in means they are great for sharing (which I will not be doing), but it also means you can re-seal the bag and indulge again later as well. I am hoping these become a permanent position on our shelves as I know when I have a girly night in to watch a DVD this will be the first bag of treat's I'll be picking up.

                  A new take on the Cadburys Caramel Bar that works perfectly!

                  I feel sorry for people who don't like chocolate and dieters who don't room in their calories counting for that which is lovely.

                  I adore chocolate in all its forms, a trip to the hell that is the Arndale Centre is never complete without a visit to Hotel Chocolat and 3 slabs of my favourite choccie!

                  But I also like 'everyday' chocolate, myfavourite of which is Cadburys Dairy Milk , in all its forms. My favourite incarnation however has to be Cadburys Caramel, chunks of chocolate filled with a slightly runny caramel.

                  Then I saw Cadburys Caramel Nibbles, easy to spot as they are basically in the same yellow and blue packaging as the car, but in a bag. My interest was piqued and in the interests of research I decided to try, not I assure you because I'm a greedy piggy but because they looked flipping delicious.

                  A cup of coffee and chocolate is my favourite accompaniment whilst watching the telly, so me and Americas Next Top Model are cuddled up on the sofa. These are interesting looking things, slightly bigger and thicker than Cadburys Buttons. For some reason they look slightly dusty, hard to describe but not the dark brown of a bar of chocolate.

                  Still aint going to stop me trying them though. They don't melt in the mouth immediately which is quite odd considering its Cadburys. It takes a cracking of the top of the Nibble for the familiar caramel to leave out. The caramel that's quite runny but creamy as well.
                  It takes the collapse of the chocolate and the escape of the caramel before it starts to melt. That when the familiar creamy melt in your mouth Cadburys taste arrives. The top will melt, they you are left with the thick base, almost like another chocolate.

                  Hmm, I'm thinking, I'm not making them sound so good, but believe me they are. When the chocolates melting and swirling and mixing in your mouth it's gorgeous. It coats your mouth reaching every important tastebud.

                  Then there's the aftertaste, its still the chocolate with a hint of caramel. But hurrah!, these aren't sickly so you can stuff as many as you like.

                  I am extremely, hugely recommending these little buttons of loveliness. Even those who rarely let a chocolate pass their lips should be tempted.
                  Those watching those pounds may also be watching their pennies. The price of these can vary enormously, they do come in 2 sizes, the small bag can vary from 50p to 80p. The large 225g bag is better value, and I'm not just saying that to justify my greediness.
                  In my local Co-Op you can purchase these for £2.25 a bag, even the service stations even more. But better still at Asda and Tescos they are currently £1 a bag. A perfect excuse for stocking up on a few bags.

                  If you like chocolate, if you like caramel and even more so you like the mix of the two then you have to try Cadburys Caramel Nibbles.

                    Caramel goodiness in the shape of a button

                    For some people a full 7 segment chocolate bar is just too rich and with the purposes of a smaller bar, being to make it more manageable it would just be rude to not eat it all.

                    However, lately I have found that this is impossible. Chocolate bars are just lacking the appeal they used to have, either that or my sweet tooth is turning savoury.

                    That is where bags of chocolate come in handy. I was in the local Co-op the other day when I noticed an advertising box full of Dairy Milk Caramel Nibbles at 10p a pack! Okay so whilst chocolate bars are too rich I couldn't resist the bargain and bought a packet for both myself and the boyfriend. So 20p later and having made a saving of £1.08 I was happy.

                    We both prefer our caramel from the fridge, so I placed these bags to chill before consumption.

                    The Dairy Milk Caramel Nibbles come in a small bag in the traditional Dairy Milk caramel colours of rich purple and golden yellow. Infact the bag looks like the bar but in a packet, with the word "NEW" across the top.

                    I think the packaging is made of some kind of plastic, which is white on the inside and designed to preserve the chocolate. Each pack contains 195 calories, 20.7grams of sugars, 10.1grams of fat, 6.1grams of saturates and 0.13grams of salt. Nowhere on the pack does it say how much the packet contains and sadly I began eating before I decided to review and forgot to count how many nibbles were in the pack. However, I would hazard a guess at about 15.

                    The packet also has a list of ingredients on the back as well as contact details for Cadbury. I found it particularly amusing that if you are not completely satisfied you can return the product, but I would imagine that whether people were or not they would generally just finish the packet.

                    The nibbles themselves look just like Dairy Milk Chocolate Buttons. For those who are not familiar with this particular treat, they are small solid button like chocolates. The different in this case is that the chocolate is not solid, but instead filled with gooey caramel. Whilst I initially ate these from the fridge, the caramel was not hard, just cool. When I went back to the pack the next day having left it at room temperature, I found very little difference in the consistency of the caramel.

                    Each nibble is approximately 2cm in diameter and no thicker than 6mm in height. This gives a brilliant balance of chocolate and caramel. They also all have a chocolate line from the centre to the edge. I am assuming this is where the nibble had been sealed once the centre has been added.
                    The base, as with buttons, is flat with the Cadbury trademark written in italics across it several times.

                    The best thing about these is that (unlike a bar) you don't feel obliged to eat the whole thing. Also as these are smaller there is less caramel, which makes them not quite as sickly as the pieces of a caramel bar.
                    I would definitely recommend them, especially if you get them on offer. I think they were priced at 64p at full price. I got them for 10p a pack due to the expiry date being this month.

                    Bargain!

                    These are also available in "grab size bags" as the picture shows on Dooyoo.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      One for the particularly sweet-toothed

                      It's a while since I've written a review about chocolate, and that really is something that must be rectified! So here we go: I first noticed Cadbury Caramel Nibbles a few months ago, and although they still seem to carry a "New!" flash on the front of the wrapper, I think it's starting to push it a bit. I found my small pack (it weighs 39 grams, though I had to work that out myself) on offer as part of a "three for a quid" promotion in Poundland, so in effect it cost 33 1/3 pence! As I type, Tesco and Asda both sell them for 51p a bag, so the Poundland deal is a great one.

                      It's immediately apparent what family this product comes from. There's plenty of the trademark Cadbury purple in evidence, in particular on the back, and the "Dairy Milik" branding is present and correct as well. The dominant colour on the front, though, is a bright and cheerful slightly orangey yellow, which as you'd expect is the same yellow you get on a Caramel bar. There is, however, no sign of the infamous Caramel Bunny, which given her slightly dodgy recent makeover is probably not something to be too concerned about...

                      The nutritional content of this pack throws up very few surprises. Nibbles are vegetarian, which is nice to see, though of course the use of milk chocolate means that you do have to be able to eat dairy products. There's a "May contain: nuts, soya" box on the back, but that's the extent of the allergen information. A full bag of Nibbles provides 195 kcal, which is similar to what you'd get in a standard chocolate bar, or perhaps slightly lower. 20.7 grams of sugars, though, equates to 23% of an adult's Guideline Daily Amount, so bear that in mind! As this is Dairy Milk, you get a nice high 20-23% milk content, too.

                      Open the bag, which seems slightly more robust than do similar sized bags of other chocolate sweets (Maltesers, for example) and you are immediately hit by the sweet smell that characterises Cadbury Caramel. If you're going to dislike Nibbles, then the most likely reason is that you find them too sweet, and Cadbury have not made any concessions in that department. I'm not saying that they're as sickly as some *white* chocolate (the Milky Bar being an obvious example) but they're certainly not subtle when it comes to sweetness. I like the smell a lot; some may not.

                      There were 14 Nibbles in my pack. Not a huge number, but at least better than the derisory seven sweets I found in a bag of Cadbury's other newcomer, Clusters! They're basically slightly overgrown Buttons, with a little flourish of chocolate added to the top; it would be pushing it to call it a "design", though! Bite into one and you'll find... well, really you'll find a very small Caramel bar in round form. The caramel filling is, again, very sweet, but the consistency is perfect in that it doesn't go horribly runny and get everywhere. And of course the coating, being Dairy Milk, is simply wonderful, melting in the mouth as it has done for so many years.

                      I liked these chocolates, and would be more than happy to eat them again. You do need to have a fairly serious sweet tooth (and tongue!) but if that sounds like you then you're likely to enjoy these Nibbles. I think they're perhaps a tiny bit too expensive at full price, and I'm not sure I'd buy them very often *other* than when they're on offer, but I really have no complaints when it comes to taste. Four stars, because they don't stun me with their brilliance but are nevertheless very tasty.
