Cadbury Chocolate Animals are animal shapes covered in milk chocolate. My sister and brother absolutely love them but I don't see what the fuss is about and I am not a massive fan of these.
The animals come in a foil packet in a lovely bright purple colour. They have animated pictures of animals which are great for young children. The packets aren't very big so kids can open them easily. You can usually buy them in multipacks of 8 for around £1.50.
You can get many different shapes of these animals including monkey hippo lion elephand. Each packet has a different animal shape. Personally the shapes look nothing like animals just like a big fat blob in my opinion.
A thin layer is coated in light sweet cadbury milk chocolate and the rest of the animal tastes quite like mcVities biscuits however not as salty. The biscuits are quite light and crunchy. Adults can easily eat them in one mouthfull while children my prefer to take a couple of bites.

Not that much and I think it is fine to snack on these once in a while
Personally I don't really like the taste of these biscuits but I think they are perfect for young children. I know lots of adults love these biscuits but I have recently gone off chocolate as I have had a major change in appetite. If I had a bigger appetite like I used to have I would have probably loved these.
However like I said its for the kids
With 3 young children I'm always on the look for little snacks that can be thrown in my handbag to help keep the peace on trips to the shops/car journeys etc. These little animal biscuits come in very handy!
You can buy them in variety of pack sizes, but I usually buy the multipacks of 8. These come in a large purple foil/cellophane bag, with pictures of animals on the front and the Cadbury branding. On the back of the pack are some fascinating animal facts, the ingredients and nutritional information.
Each mini bag contains 110 calories and 4.5g of fat. There is a warning that the biscuits may contain nuts.
Inside the main bag you will find 8 mini bags of animal biscuits, each in their own foil non-resealable bag.
Each bag contains about 8 biscuits. Each biscuit is in the shape of an animal and is roughly 2cm by 2cm and about 1cm thick, so a perfect little size for little fingers. One side of the biscuit has a thin layer of cadburys milk chocolate on it, the other side has a simple print of an animal on it - such as a bear, an elephant, a monkey, a tiger etc etc.
The biscuit tastes a bit like a digestive and is quite crumbly when you bite into it. If an adult was eating one of these they would be less than one mouthful, but for a small child they are a decent size and when given a little pack containing 8 biscuits they feel like they're getting a real treat!
These are a great snack for a family on the move, but I wouldn't recommend carrying them around in hot weather as the chocolate melts and gets sticky and gooey very quickly.
An 8 pack of these is normally priced at around £1.39, but I usually get them in Home and Bargain for around 99p.
I used to love these Cadbury animal biscuits as a child, and when I saw them off offer in asda last week, I just couldn't resist! I got a pack of these biscuits for £1 instead of the usual £1.35, and inside was 8 mini packs of animal biscuits. You get around 8-10 biscuits in each mini pack, which would be enough for a child, but I always want about 3 packs at once! The packaging is purple with pictures of animals on the front, as shown in the picture above.
These biscuits are like digestives, with a layer of Cadbury chocolate on the top. The biscuit is nice and light, and easy to eat. The chocolate is basically just like dairy milk, and it is a nice thick layer to make the biscuit extra tasty.
The biscuits are all shaped like animals. There is a monkey, a tiger, lion, elephant and a hippo. These are aimed at children obviously, but I just buy them for myself! On the pack it has a different fact about each animal for example, a lions eyesight is 5 times better than a humans, so children can get to learn a bit about the animals before they eat them!
Surprisingly, there are only 10 calories per biscuit! But I suppose if you eat 10 in a pack, that's 100 calories, so its not different to eating a kitkat for example, which has 107 calories. 100 calories isn't too bad though,
Nearer to Christmas time, Cadburys bring these out in a sharing box, which I always buy as a treat. These also come in another pack of jumbo sized animal biscuits, I have never tried these though.
These need to be stored in a cool dry place, and they are suitable for vegetarians. They may contain traces of nuts so be careful if you have a nut allergy.
These are great to snack on through out the day as a treat, or easy to just throw into your lunch box. I highly recommend these Cadbury animal biscuits, even though they are for children, adults can enjoy them too!
I have four children who like nothing more than a nice treat when they have been behaving well and I like to have lots of things in the house to keep for occasions like this so they can pick the treat they want and really get something that they are going to behave for.
Cadbury Animals come in a multi-bag with 8 small bags in each one and I paid £1.39 for this from Tesco stores. However, there are frequent special offers on these and at present you can purchase 3 multi-bags for £3.00 which is very reasonable for 24 bags of chocolate biscuits.
Each small bag is purple in colour (Cadburys favourite colour) and the one that I have just eaten contained 14 biscuits which is perfect for smaller appetites but I could have happily eaten 2 or 3 bags just to satisfy my chocolate craving. The bag is decorated with pictures of different animals which match the shapes of biscuits you will find within the packet.
Each bag is 25g in size and the biscuits contain 120 calories and 5.0g of fat so aren't too bad if you are desperate for a crunchy chocolate fix like I was.
The biscuits are deliciously crunchy and you can suck them and they aren't too dry at all. The chocolate on the top is a little on the small side but overall they have a very moreish taste and texture to them. The quality of the chocolate is the usual high Cadburys standard and I love how these biscuits are shaped and decorated to look like animals and there is a groove in the chocolate which is nice for running my tongue along while I am trying to savour every biscuit. The quality of the biscuit is very good and I love how crunchy they are.
While these are quite small bite sized biscuits they are delicious even if you just savour them one at a time as I did and I think the quality of them is quite reasonable for the price paid and I am pleased that there are 8 packets in each multi bag as they last a good week or so in my household when used with other items as well.
These biscuits may be a little too moreish, particularly if you haven't had your lunch yet (like me!) and I always like to limit myself and my children to one bag each as an occasional treat as I don't believe in just dishing out chocolate left right and centre.
My son loves the little detail on the animals and he really takes his time to look at each biscuit before eating it. I love how interested my children are in these biscuits and there are some little facts dotted around the packaging which is always nice as my children soak up most knowledge and I am sure they will be standing at school in the playground telling their friends about their useful information they know and how they learnt it.
Easter has just passed and we are finally getting though all the gifts my daughter received. Grandma purchased an 8 pack of these mini animals for my daughter for Easter rather than another Easter egg. The packet she received contains 8 mini bags.
My daughter is a huge fan of these and they are just the right size for children.
Each packet contains around 10 biscuits and come in very colourful purple packets, each with a different animal on the front. Whenever she receives a packet with a lion on all you hear is her make a loud roaring noise. You've got to love the things your kids do.
Each biscuit is in the shape of an animal such as a hippo or monkey. On the biscuit side the imprint of the animal is carved into it, on the reverse is a thin layer of lovely Cadburys dairy milk chocolate. Each biscuit is around an inch in size.
The combination of the biscuit and chocolate really is divine, they are very moorish and extremely tasty. I always tend to pinch on before handing them to my daughter, as they last a whole 2 minutes with her.
The biscuit is nice and smooth and have a lovely texture to it. It's not quite and digestive, neither a rich tea. It really is a combination of both.
The chocolate is traditional Cadburys dairy milk and really sets of this biscuit. The combination of biscuit and smooth rich creamy chocolate is lush.
They contain no artifical colours or flavours and really are little bags of fun.
They are great as a treat for being good or top pop in your children's lunch box.
Each packet contain 120 calories, 7.1g of sugar and 5.0g of fat.
I believe they cost around the £1.70 mark but are unsure as I don't usually purchase these.
You can also purchase a box of these which I have seen retail at around 62p but that's when they are on offer at half price.
You can pick these up pretty much anywhere your local supermarket or corner shop but price will depend on where you purchase them from.
Obviously it's only right that I bought a multipack of these to try so that I could review them for you - let's hope I don't eat them all at once!
I haven't had these biscuits for years, but I found them again recently so thought why not.
They could in a distinct Cadbury's purple packet, with an image of an animal on the front - which they also name, for example 'Gemma Elephant'.
The actual biscuits are little biscuits in the shape of wild animals - such as monkeys, elephants and lions. They also have a layer of chocolate on one side, which makes it just that bit more interesting.
They are quite enjoyable - the biscuit part is nice, if not a little dry, and the chocolate is typical Cadbury's chocolate - so as long as you like Cadbury, it's okay.
I found them a little bland and not as good as I once remembered them being, also they're still enjoyable.
Per 100g they have:
The little packets I bought are 25g each, so only about 120 calories per packet. I'm not sure on their usual price but I bought a pack of eight 25g packets for £1, although I think they must have been on a special offer.
I'm happy to finish these, but they're not something I'll be buying regularly. The biscuit really does need to be more moist or at least have more flavour to it. I think a child would enjoy them though, and I guess that is who they're aimed at!
Cadbury chocolate animals are some of my favourite biscuits as much for the nostalgic value for having something from my younger days as for any particular value as biscuits. However they are also pleasant as biscuits the chocolate is dairy milk or simmilar as it is from cadbury and as such they have a pleasant chocolatey taste. The biscuit is also nice it is a sort of shortbread style biscuit.
Of coure any of us who had them as children know that the real pleasure is to play with the animals. Primarily this involves torturing them by biting of pieces of their anatomy while imitating their voices (it was just me?....ok)
In conclusion these are pleasant shortbread like biscuits coated with chocolate and in the shape of animals (there is also a festive variety I beleive). The main attraction is from nostalgia as while pleasant they are fairly unremarkable as biscuits go.
There is a house in New Orleans... whoops, sorry, wrong Animals. Ahem. I'll come in again.
Right then... in my continuing quest to make absolutely everyone on this site go, "Ooh, I remember those from years ago!" I'm looking this time around at Cadbury Animals - actually branded on the pack as "Cadbury mini Animals", although the word "mini" is in appropriately mini print! I bought an eight-bag multipack in Poundland (for a pound, yes) which is a useful saving over the £1.30 or so that supermarkets tend to charge.
Being a Cadbury product, it is of course a legal requirement for the bag to be extremely purple, and so it is, with an actually very attractive metallic sheen to it. However, your eyes are more likely to be drawn to the three large heads of anthropomorphic cartoon animals, who frankly look a bit worrying. Not because they're all fierce and predatory; quite the reverse in fact. Actually, the tiger to the top right of the packet seems to have partaken of some exotic substance, judging by her mindless open-mouthed grin...
On the back of the pack we are introduced to the whole gang: Mojo Monkey, Leroy Lion, Tiff Tiger (now, even more weirdly, walking upright), Zippo Hippo and Gemma Elephant. Each of these is accompanied with a thrilling "Did you know..." fact: for example, that a hippo's mouth can open "up to 4 feet wide". (Seeing as these are basically kids' biscuits, shouldn't that measurement have been metricated?) There's also a small picture right at the bottom of what the biscuits actually look like, which is (of course) nothing like the cartoons.
The information panel is also on the back of the packet, and is reasonably informative. As usual with Cadbury's chocolate biscuits, they're made under licence by Burton's on the Wirral rather than in Bournville itself. Each 25-gram mini bag contains 120 kcal, which is roughly equivalent to half a standard-size chocolate bar, and 7.7g of sugars. The Guideline Daily Allowance figures shown are for children aged 5 to 10, and as such the saturated fat content of 2.5g is a hefty 12.5% of GDA. Chocolate Animals are suitable for vegetarians.
Each mini bag is just that - mini. They're absolutely tiny, in fact, far smaller than a crisp packet of the same 25g weight would be. Like the outer packet, they're extremely purple, but have just one member of the animal collective (no, not the band) on the front. This seems to be chosen randomly: the multipack I tried had three mini bags with Gemma Hippo on, but none with Tiff Tiger. On the back is the message "This pack contains a variety of animal shaped biscuits", just in case you were misled into thinking that a pack with a lion on the front might actually contain lion-shaped biscuits.
The actual biccie ration is, frankly, meagre. You get about nine little biscuits in each mini bag, and I would expect older children at least (and certainly adults!) to try to wangle a second bag on the grounds that one was just not enough. They'd have a point, too. The biscuits are small - about the size of a 2p piece - and as advertised have one side covered in chocolate and the other decorated with a simple animal figure, some of them just a face and some a whole body. They're actually quite cute.
The chocolate doesn't smell of very much at all, and does not seem to me to be actual Dairy Milk: it's not as rich and doesn't have that lovely lingering creaminess. It's more like the sort of chocolate you get on a digestive biscuit, and I would imagine that that's exactly what it is. I did enjoy the texture of the Animals: the things crunch up very satisfyingly, though are not so hard that there's any need to worry for your (or your children's) teeth. They leave a pleasantly mild, sweet aftertaste, too.
All in all, not bad, though I'd be lying if I said that this was something I intended to rush out and buy again at the earliest opportunity. There's nothing wrong with the biscuits, and they're fairly moreish, but in these days of health-consciousness, especially when it comes to younger children, you do wonder how easy it will be for Cadbury to continue to sell a product like this. I have a sneaking suspicion that the "look at us; aren't we so postmodern and ironic?" slice of the adult population may actually be one of the main purchasers of Animals!
Cadbury's Chocolate animals
We always have some of these in the house as they are my son's first choice of snack for his school break, however I may occasionally eat a packet or two, not mojo monkey though as for some unknown reason these are his favourite packet, I had best say now that each packet tastes exactly the same but, that is kids for you. Each mini biscuit comes in the shape of an animal with one half covered in delicious Cadbury's milk chocolate.
~~ Price and availability ~~
Each multi packet contains 8 25g smaller packets and costs approximately £1.20, they are available in all supermarkets and will be found on the biscuit aisle.
~~ Cadbury's ~~
Cadbury's has always been a firm favourite in our house, in my opinion it is heads and shoulders above the competition and these little chocolate animals are no exception to that.
~~ Whats in the bag ~~
Each multi pack contains 8 small 25g bags, the bag is purple in colour with a animal character on the front this could be either Mojo Monkey, Leroy Lion, Gemma Elephant, Tiff Tiger or Zippo Hippo. On opening one of the small bags you can smell the lovely chocolate aroma that tempts you into wanting to try one.
~~ Nutritional information ~~
On the front of the large multi packs it states No artificial flavours, No artificial colours and free from hydrogenated fats. Here is the nutritional information per biscuit

~~ My overall opinion ~~
I remember these from my childhood, when they were only available in a box and in my house were only bought at Christmas for some odd reason, I think they were available all year round maybe my mam and dad were a bit tight!. To me they taste just as good as they did then, a nice biscuit with a really nice smooth milk chocolate coating, kids love them for the novelty factor, Obviously these are chocolate and biscuit so are never going to be healthy but as I have said before, everything in moderation.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review.
I thought I'd review these as I hadn't had them in ages & decided to pick up a pack not long ago when they were on offer. They may not be anything amazing in terms of taste, but they're still quite quirky and cute.
Cadburys Chocolate Animals are sold in mini packs of 8 X 25g. These cost around £1.22, which is probably about average for this type of multipack, but they're often on offer (such as my recent purchase at £1 in Tesco). Sold in purple packaging with images of cartoon animals on the front, so these do appeal more so to younger consumers. That said, I would argue that as they're really just miniature biscuits, they're more than suitable for any age.
The size also makes these perfect for lunch boxes or taking out with you as a snack. They're also sold in different sizes, such as a box for sharing at Christmas.
These are simply 'Animal shaped mini biscuits half covered in Cadbury's chocolate'. Being produced by Cadbury's, I expected these to be good quality and have the same great taste of their milk chocolate.
The biscuits are quite small, hence each contains only 10 calories and 0.5g of fat. Per 100g there 480 calories and 20.1g of fat, so each bag contains around 120 calories and 5.1g of fat. As a snack, these are relatively good, and a better way of having digestive biscuits than having, say, 3 from an ordinary packet.
The taste is fairly plain and some would say they're probably a bit dry. They're very similar in taste & texture to Cadbury's Chocolate Digestives, just a smaller, animal-shaped version. I prefer McVities, as they seem to be slightly softer and more melt-in-your-mouth. None the less, these Animals do have a nice taste of Cadbury chocolate and sweet biscuit.
The size makes them a good snack, with just the right amount of chocolate to satisfy a craving for something sweet without them being sickly, with a crunchy texture
Overall they're quite satisfying and tasty, and there's nothing negative I can find to say about them, there's just nothing 'extra special' about them other than their shape
Cadbury Chocolate Animals
I used to get really excited when I was younger when my Mum used to put these in my lunch box. I don't really know what it was either, probably the fact that they are Cadbury's and they taste fantastic. I do think they appeal to a younger audience but there is nothing stopping adults eating them!
These are little animal shaped digestive biscuits with a thin layer of milk chocolate on top which is very tasty as all Cadbury's chocolate is! There are several different animals in these, for examples, Leroy the Lion and Mojo the Monkey. I bought the mini packs of these so there was 8 in a pack and they were each 25g which was quite good and big enough to go in lunch boxes. I would say you get about 9 mini animals in a pack which is probably just enough.
They come in purple packs with the animals on the front which makes t seem quite fun and of course, they are yummy so what can you expect! They are definitely a treat and your children will not forget! Each little pack has 120 calories which is just the same as a small chocolate bar. The good thing about these is the fact that they are not hard, they are actually really crumbly and the chocolate melts in your mouth- delicious. There is some facts on the back of each pack which is found really good because they are trying to teach you something!
These are on offer for £1.00 in Tesco at the moment so it is the right time to grab a bargain. I love the way these are shaped and I also love the way these are presented. I do think this is a 5 star by Cadbury's!
Chocolate animals are a fantastic biscuit and chocolate product made by Cadbury. They are fairly unique as they are like little bite sized pieces of biscuit and chocolate shaped into little animals and are then in a little bag for you to eat where ever, whenever and I cant really think of a similar product to these.
The actual look of the biscuits inside is fantastic. They are all shaped into different animals and I'm not sure how many different ones there are but there's probably about 5 or something. They are fun to look at and fun to eat, but no doubt more fun the younger you are, however I'm not ashamed to admit I still love these now.
The taste of them is really good as well. They are made from a bottom layer of biscuit and then a fairly thin layer of Cadburys milk chocolate on top as well. The biscuit tastes really great on these, its kind of a hard biscuit but soft in the middle, and I think it tastes fairly similar to the biscuit in Cadbury fingers, especially when the top layer of milk chocolate is added.
These are a great product for eating as a snack, with a cup if tea or milk, and are great of lunch boxes as well. These usually come in multipacks of so many small bags. You don't get all that much in each bag though and there could perhaps be more in but these are primarily aimed at kids so I guess its enough for them.
You can buy these in a 150g box, which is on offer at Asda just now for 62p. There is also a Christmas version of them with Christmas characters at the same price just now. I am buying a few of the more so due to the price of them.
These are made by Cadbury's and the Chocolate tastes yummy on them.
The packaging is alright. The Biscuits are in a bag which is inside a colourful box. The box is slightly rectangular and is a medium purple colour. There is a few cartoon looking Animals on the front as well, and it all looks pretty and nice.
So what are they? They are little Biscuits that are half coated in Chocolate. On 1 side of the Biscuit there is imprints of an animal, normally a Mokey, Lion or other safari type Animals, and on the other side is where the Milk Chocolate is. The Biscuits aren't that large in size and are a sort of round, squiggly shape like a cloud shape.
The Biscuit part is nice and crunchy and tastes a bit like a Digestive Biscuit in a way, but not as crumbly. The Biscuits are quite thick, but again not too thick and the ratio of Chocolate to Biscuit seems just right. The Chocolate is slightly rippled, but not too much and quite a thick coating on it as well.
Since the box of these normally costs say £1.30 I'm not sure if they are worth the price. I guess they could be, as you see what you would pay for a pack of Cadbury's Chocolate Digestive Biscuits and they would be probably the same weight. These have a novelty about them, so although I normally grab for them when they are on offer, that's probably when they are drawn to my attention more.
A nice snack Biscuit.
I often look for something different or a blast from the past when shopping for sweet snacks and the most recent blast from the past to jump out at me was a box of Cadbury`s chocolate animals, I remembered these from when I was just a slip of a girl and wondered if I would enjoy them as much now.
The truth of the matter is that I did not enjoy them as much as when I was younger but that said they were still a very good biscuit and one I would buy again. I am fairly sure the chocolate on these has gotten thinner over the years but the taste is still as I remember.
I had probably best explain what these actually are in case anyone has just arrived from Mars or something, Cadbury`s chocolate animals are animal shaped digestive type biscuits with a layer of Cadbury`s chocolate over one side, mostly designed for kids I guess but adults will love them too.
These can be purchased in box`s or in multi packs of small bags, I bought the box and inside the box were 34 of these small but delicious biscuits, each one is about one third of the size of a typical chocolate digestive.
If you buy the multi packs then each small bag has on average 10 of these biscuits, both the bags and the box have the pictures of the animals you will find inside along with their fun Cadbury given names such as Mojo Monkey, Leroy Lion and Zippo Hippo.
The multi packs are currently available in Asda for £1.19 for an eight pack which works out at just less than 15p per pack, the box is priced at 89p right now also in Asda, prices will obviously vary from place to place.
The best way to describe the taste of these is simply to say they are like any other chocolate digestive although I would say the biscuit on these is slightly crunchier than a typical digestive and there is slightly less chocolate covering.
The small bags would be great for kids lunch box`s whilst the bigger box`s are great for us adults to share, so an all ages top sweet snack in my opinion but watch out for those dreaded calories, with each 100g of these biscuits containing 480 calories, they are very much a get fat quick snack!
CADBURY'S CHOCOLATE ANIMALS.
I can remember these lovely chocolate animals from when i was little. They have and always will be a favourite in my house, both for me my children and my grandchildren.
The Packet **********
These come in a large bag containing 8 packets, each contain 25grams of these animals, and the packet is brightly coloured with comical animal faces on their and the children like to look at them. All these biscuits are shaped like animals thats why they are appealing to little ones.
At Sainsburys they are currently on sale for £1.28p or £2.00 for two bags, which is a good deal indeed.
Inside the larger bag there is eight little bags each containing 25grams of these little animals.
The Taste **********
They are nice and sweet digestives, with a coating of Cadburys chocolate on them, the chocolate is not too thick but thick enough to be able to say that you can taste the chocolate, the digestives are crumbly but not too crumbly, just how a sweet digestive biscuit should be, and they make for a good combination.
There are little lions, tigers and elephants inside thats what makes them so appealing to my grandchildren and they taste good together.
I usually find that a little bag of these is good because it is not too much to spoil your childrens appetite before their dinner.The Chocolate tastes just like Cadbury's chocolate and has little ridges of thicker chocolate on it, and there chocolate always tastes really sweet and good quality cocoa is obviously used. The Digestives are made of good quality which i think helps to maintain a good overall quality biscuit, and they gel well together.
Each bag contains 120 calories and 5 grams of fat, 7.1grams of sugar and you get an average of between ten to twelve little biscuits in each and every bag.
I like to keep a packet of these in the fridge for when my grandchildren come over.
I really like the fact that you get enough bags to go around all my grandchildren in a large bag.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.
