The first time I remember eating Dairy Milk Caramel must've been the mini versions you get inside a big pack of sweets the kind you get at either Halloween or Christmas in a round box. You tend to get a much smaller version of only one or two bars, but even then the taste is still the same and just as enjoyable. Nowadays I'm more inclined to eat an entire bar, or a large share pack that tends to have around 8 longer rows. They still come in relatively small pieces that you can snap off, although this is usually messy as the caramel comes pouring out, particularly if you squeeze a little too hard and accidentally crush the chocolate mound of the piece you're trying to snap off.
The taste is essentially the exact same as your typical Dairy Milk but with the added benefit of the caramel inside. The taste is quite rich and Dairy Milk have always had their very distinctive taste that I happen to enjoy. The type of chocolate is milk and so though it is quite rich, it is much less so than a dark chocolate. The taste is very creamy and each piece has a consistency to it that means any pack you have is always just as enjoyable. The milkiness of the chocolate, from a brand that claim to have a glass or so of milk for every pack (hence the brand logo) makes it soft and easy to melt and heightens the eating experience. The caramel is smooth also and so the combination works well as neither is too distinct or overpowering. The tastes blend well together also with the caramel being very complimentary to that typical Dairy Milk flavour I mentioned.
At room temperature the chocolate can sometimes get a little mucky because the chocolate begins to melt and like I said previously the caramel is very gooey when snapped off. I always eat my chocolate at room temperate regardless, but sometimes a quick stay in the fridge can give it a crispness that is nice to have from time to time, as well as making the caramel a bit more chewy.
The price for one standard size bar, the kind you can get in a convenience shop or by the till at a supermarket, is anywhere between 60-80p from what I've seen around. The larger share pack I mentioned is usually a pound to £1.50, and is an option I often choose as its easy to snap off pieces to give to members of the family, or to just pick at when sat on the coffee table. The price tends to be in the middle of the market and is what you expect to spend on standard chocolate bars like your Galaxys, as opposed to the more expensive Lindts.
I would recommend this chocolate as it has a really pleasant taste and is a really nice treat to have from time to time. The caramel and chocolate combination is one that really works in numerous chocolate brands, and in this bar manages to have a distinct taste from other chocolate and caramel combos like the Galaxy version, and so has a unique taste. The price though a lot for just a bar of chocolate is reasonable for a treat to have from time to time, and is also like I said before what most other chocolate bars are also priced at. The only problem I have with this chocolate is that it tends to run out very soon. Even if I try to ration out the bar after a few pieces the packet is basically finished as you only get around 6 pieces for a single bag. That said, this is the norm for most chocolate bars, as opposed to the never-ending moreish feel you get with something like Maltesers that comes in many single pieces.
Take it easy with Cadbury's caramel.
I love chocolate and my favourite brand of chocolate has to be Cadbury's dairy milk. I love milk chocolate much better than dark or white chocolate and the creaminess of this chocolate makes it very delicious and moorish. Usually I just go for the fruit and nut variety but if I am feeling particularly naughty I go for the sweet and sickly but deliciously tasty Dairy Milk with caramel variety.
What's not to love about this bar. Dairy Milk was first introduced in 1905 and what I love about it is that it contains a glass and a half of milk in every half pound bar of chocolate. This makes it very smooth and creamy and very easy to eat. I can eat way more of this brand and style of chocolate than I can of specialty chocolates or fancy designer chocolates. The chocolate is lovely and thick and you get a really nice bit of thick chocolate in each square.
When you add caramel to the equation this is how you get these delicious Dairy Milk caramel bars. The bar is made up of individual squares of chocolate that are joined together and in order to separate them you just snap and eat. Inside the chocolate you find a lovely smooth chewy caramel. Its not runny or liquid but it is not a hard caramel. It has a wonderful consistency, chewy and sweet but not too sickly which is nice. THere is quite a bit glop of caramel so you get a nice bite of it with every square and the mixture of the chocolate and the caramel works so well together.
You can get the bars in different sizes but a regular sized one contains 185 calories which is not too bad for a treat. The packaging is easy to spot as it comes in quite a bright yellow wrapper. If you haven't had one yet I definitely recommend it.
This chocolate bar is amazing!! It also has less fat in it that its equivalent just chocolate bar! It is best served after being in the fridge for a while so that the caramel isn't so runny! The only problem is that you may become addicted to it as it is just the perfect balance of chocolate and then something sweet. The bar itself comes in bits you can break off as with other bars meaning that even if you are on a diet you could always have a couple of chunks one day and leave the rest till tomorrow. Or alternatively you could share it with friends???
I think each chocolate bar retails at around 50p but obviously this may be higher depending on where you go or if there are any offers on! So why not try this as an alternative to just a plain boring bar of chocolate
Me and my kids love this Cadbury dairy milk caramel. It is one of my daughters favourites in particular.
My partner was going down the shops yesterday and he asked me if i wanted any sweets or little treats!! I thought about it (re my diet) but hadn't had any sweets yet that day so said " yes, just a small bar of chocolate" I asked him to choose. He returned form the shops about 10 minutes later with a big bar of Cadbury caramel (140G). I was expecting something slightly smaller than this! but it was nice of him and i do like this chocolate bar. Our dinner wasn't ready yet and i was starving so i had a few chunks! Well, i only had 2 as i didnt want to ruin my dinner (as well as a small part of me thinking about the calories). Dinner came and went (which was very filling!). At about 9pm i started to get a bit hungry again (i had been offering my partner the dairy caramel also, but he didnt want any). The caramel was on the table next to me. I couldn't help it.... i had to have more. All in all i ate just under half the bar.
To be honest i think it is better to eat this chocolate in smaller doses. As this was the chunky chocolate caramel bar; it can get a little sickly if you eat too much. I would therefore recommend you only eat maybe 3 chunks in one go. I ended up eating about 6 chunks in one go when i ate it at 9pm! I dont recommend eating chocolate late a night actually. For me, its not good as i suffer with terrible heartburn sometimes. I was fortunate last night though and i didnt get any heartburn ( i think that was down to pure luck!)
The bar my partner bought only cost £0.99 pence. This price was actually printed on the bar and he got it from my local shop. I was surprised as i have seen these bars for alot more in other well known supermarkets. I love it when the prices are printed on things because then they cannot be changed!!
The chocolate on this bar is chunky and there is plenty of the Cadbury caramel in the middle. I would prefer it more if it wasn't quite so chunky and with a little less caramel (thats why i really like the Cadbury caramel nibbles, because they are small and easier to eat ,though very expensive in my view).
Milk chocolate (milk, sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, vegetable fat, emulsifiers ; E442, E476, flavourings)
Caramel (40%); glucose syrup, vegetable oil, glucose fructose syrup, dried whey, sugar, flavourings, salt, emulsifier( E47)
Calories; There are 35 kcal in one chunk and 480 kcal in 100g of this product..
I have decided this chocolate caramel bar deserves 4 stars; I may have given it 5 but for the high calorie intake and the fact that i personally prefer it in a bit less chunky form eg Cadbury caramel nibbles.
I must be getting old, because I can remember when these were called "Cadbury's Caramel" and came in a yellow wrapper. They were advertised by an animated rabbit and the slogan was "take it eeeeasy". A few years ago this product got swallowed up under the "Dairy Milk" brand and became known as Dairy Milk Caramel. Whilst I can see the sense in this to an extent, as Cadbury's is known mostly for its milk chocolate, in the case of this product it is the caramel filling that is that star. The good news is that apart from the name and the wrapper, little else changed. The recipe is unaltered - why change a winning formula?
The wonderful caramel filling is the perfect accompanyment for the Dairy Milk chocolate, it is just the right consistency for me at room temperature - soft and smooth. For people that like their caramel to be a bit more chewy, a few minutes in a fridge will harden it up a little.
For me the best way to eat this is to put a piece in my mouth and let it melt - you get all the flavour of the chocolate, and then the sweetness of the caramel comes though! One of these bars, with a coffee or hot chocolate, makes for an excellent snack during a break during work.
My only real criticism of Dary Milk Caramel as a product is that it isn't big enough. A standard sized bar always leaves me wanting more! Maybe I'm just greedy?
Cadbury Caramel is one of my favourite Cadbury chocolate bars of all time.
It is in its basic form a Cadbury Dairy milk bar with caramel in the middle of the sections and is simply delicious. The bars are sold alone for around 60p in supermarkets and newsagents, in multipacks of 5 bars for around £1.50 or in the case of my latest bar in Christmas Selection boxes.
Each bar contains 225 kcal so its not the healthiest of snacks but who actuallly expects that chocolate is going to be a healthy choice. The chocolate comes in a plastic yellow sealed package with purple Caramel written across it. Each bar does contain milk and there is also a warning on the packaging that tells how they may contain nuts, wheat and soya but that warning seems to be pretty typical of everything these days.
On opening the packet you find 6 segments of chocolate with Cabury printed on each of them. The caramel is released when when you bite into the chocolate and is really creamy I find they are best served from the fridge when the chocolate is nice is cool and hard. As you bite into it the chocolate is also very creamy the taste is not overpowering as it is milk chocolate but the combination of the milk chocolate and caramel is perfect.
I give Caramel 5 stars and if you want to cut down on your calories then its an ideal treat to share with others as the segments are easily seperated for sharing.
What can I say? You can not go wrong with a bar of Cadburys!
I got my 140g bar of Cadburys Caramel chocolate from my local newsagent for 99p, telling myself that I would only eat a couple of squares a time (who was I kidding).
The chocolate bar wrapper is the traditional Cadbury purple and it has a wide swirl of yellow across the front with the word Caramel written across it. Above this are the words Cadbury Dairy Milk and the little glass and a half of milk logo. Also printed on the front is the price. Although Cadburys Chocolate is "Free Trade" it does not actually say this on the packet.
On the back there is a list of ingredients and also the GDA's which are per chunk:-
Now when written "per chunk" it does not look too drastic. So I broke myself a chunk off and popped it in my mouth
Straight away you get the gorgeous smooth taste of Cadburys chocolate coming through, then when you bite you can taste the caramel, all thick and sticky. The caramel is very sweet but this is toned down by the chocolate. Together they do make a wonderful combination. The smell of the chocolate is lovely, quite strong too.
Of course I did not stop at one chunk and by the end of the evening the whole bar was gone, I did share it with my fiancée so my guilt was halved but even so I had consumed nine chunks and as it is 35 calories per chunk that's going to be some serious working out at the gym next week.
I would definatly 100% recommend Cadburys Caramel, but you need so much will power to just eat a bit at a time.
It is fair trade
It is absolutely delicious
My children had far too many easter eggs for Easter. I don't really like them eating too much chocolate, so I have tried to stagger out the consuming of these easter eggs over a longer period. Yesterday I allowed them to have one of their eggs and my daughter decided apon her cadbury dairy milk caramel egg.
My daughter, wasn't at all fussed on the dairy milk caramel. She said that it was far too sweet and sickly. I had a taste as I hadn't tasted a dairy milk caramel for a long time.
Dairy milk caramel has been around for a number of years. I distictly remember the adverts of a soft spoken hare, relaxing by a tree. Encouraging viewers to 'Take it easy with a cadbury caramel.'
The packaging of the dairy milk caramel has changed over the years. It used to be a bright yellow package which made it stand out from the other cadbury's chocolate bars. Now however, it is has changed into a packaging which is quite boring and almost identical to other cadbury dairy milk offerings. I think that this makes the chocolate bar less appealing and quite undistinctive whilst sitting on the supermarket shelves. The packaging does however, include ingredients, dietry information and nutritional guidelines.
When opening the wrapping of this cadbury caramel, I have to admit I wasn't overly impressed with the look of the chocolate. It was quite chalky looking and looked quite synthetic. I was also dismayed by the thiness of the chocolate, it was not as thick as I had remember it to be.
When biting into the chocolate, the caramel inside was very sweet. It was really delicious and had a beautiful chewy consistency. The only downside was that there was just not enough of this caramel to leave a lasting impression. The chocolate tasted very creamy and of a high quality. It was rich and smooth and melted nicely in the mouth. Combined with the sweetness of the caramel this truly was a winning combination. But the lack of caramel left me feeling quite flat and disappointed.
I have seen these chocolate bars in my local garage for approx 58p. I think this is very expensive considering the measly amount of caramel that is contained within the chocolate. I do think the quality of the chocolate is high and inkeeping with what I have come to expect from cadbury. However as far as I'm concerned this cadbury caramel is one of the poorer offerings from cadbury and one which I will stay clear of in future.
** Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel **
A classic chocolate bar from Cadbury's that has been around since 1976 the Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel bar is right up there with the great confectionery treats I believe.
Being a chocoholic buying sweets is something I do a lot. I often pick up a Caramel when I'm at the supermarket. I l love the cheerful yellow packaging that contains those 6 segments of Cadbury's milk chocolate. The 6 segments are joined together to form a long oblong shape but each one can easily be snapped from the others.
Inside each of the 6 segments is a semi runny -depending on the room temperature - filling of caramel that gives the bar it's name.
I am a huge fan of Cadbury chocolate anyway but mixing it with caramel somehow improves the taste of both ingredients. This excellent combination first hits me when I unwrap a Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel and the wonderful aroma of sweet caramel and creamy milk chocolate rise up from the bar.
Snapping off a segment and biting a bit of it off reveals a wonderful mix of tastes and textures as the more solid milk chocolate and the sweet near liquid caramel centre mix together and compete with each other as the dominant flavour.
The result I think is an even draw as both tastes are so delicious but perhaps the taste of the sweet caramel lingers slightly longer in the after taste. I think the Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel bar is just about the right size as I just feel content s I devour the sixth segment. If the bar were a lot bigger I would feel a bit sickly I think as the caramel is so sweet. But Cadbury's have got the size just perfect I believe.
** In conclusion **
A brilliant addition to the Cadbury range. What was it the bunny used to say? Take it easy with a Cadbury's Caramel. Still good advice I think. Eating a Caramel feels like chocolate therapy and where else can you get therapy for under 50 pence? :o)
Thanks for reading my review.
As I have got older I have found that less is more in terms of the chocolate bars that I enjoy the most. When I was younger I used I enjoy the bars that had loads of things going on flavourwise and loads of different texture. Nowadays however, if I am going to treat myself and indulge in some chocolate I want it to be simple and full on in terms of chocolate. A biscuit based bar just seems like a waste to me.
Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel bars have fast become a firm favourite of mine in recent months. While they have been around for years it is only recently that I have really fallen for their seductive charms. Everything about this delicious chocolate bar just shouts self-indulgence to me... from the purple and gold luxury wrapper to the velvety voice caramel bunny... who can forget her??
Tastewise they really don't disappoint either, the combination of the creamy cadbury milk chocolate and the smooth caramel is just divine. The combination of the two provides a fantastic taste sensation and the contrast in textures makes for a fabulous and scrummy treat.
The bar comes in quite large chunks and the milk chocolate is a decent thickness so you do get a real chocolate hit when eating one of these bars. I often share one with a friend, if she pops in for a coffee and this is plenty for a little treat although I do have to confessed that I wouldn't have too much difficulty polishing one off to myself.
I would say these are the perfect chocolate bars for settlling down in front of something good on the telly in a snuggly dressing gown. They feel and taste like a treat, and often at the end of a tiring day they are exactly what the doctor ordered.
A standard 47g bar of Cadbury Caramel costs about 50p which is pretty much in line with other premium brand chocolate bars. These are certainly one of my current favourites and are so simple yet yummy that I can see them being around for many years to come
Cadbury is my favourite chocolate make and their Dairy Milk Caramel bar is one of the most delicious products that they've ever made in my opinion.
The bar is made from creamy milk chocolate which is filled with soft caramel - it sounds heavenly just saying it! The milk chocolate is the same as all the rest of the wonderful chocolate that Cadbury make - creamy, milky and delicious. The caramel inside is very soft and smooth so it's very easy to bite into and isn't the sort of hard or sticky caramel that is likely to break your teeth. It has a dark golden colour, tastes very sweet and is a little runny. When I take a bite I'm often left with a string of caramel hanging from the rest of the chocolate so it can be quite messy unless you just pop the whole square in your mouth in one go.
You can buy Dairy Milk Caramel in quite a few different forms - a normal size standard chocolate bar, a big sharing bar, mini bars and around Easter they do the bunny bars and mini caramel eggs. I haven't tried the Easter range as I think they would be full of too much caramel which would make them far too sickly sweet.
If you like caramel and you like chocolate, then you will definitely enjoy a Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel bar. It has the most perfect soft texture, rich ingredients and heavenly taste and I find myself closing my eyes, relaxing and just enjoying the chocolate every time I have some of this.
Cadbury caramel is a dairy milk bar separated into six distinct bocks each of which is filled with caramel. It was introduced in 1976 and has been a firm favourite of the british, chocolate consuming public ever since.
The chocolate is good, being after all cadbury dairy milk and it combines with the caramel to give a nice texture when you bite through the bar and thereby penetrated one of the reservoirs of caramel which proceeds to run down your clothing (if you're unlucky). The caramel it's self is pleasant with more flavour than the average sweet and gooey chocolate bar filling. It is not one some may consider proper toffe or caramel more just a pleasant tasting, yellow tinted sweetish filling.
Overall I like caramel bars but would never buy one over a normal dairy milk bar as I find them too sickly and would preferr to have just the chocolate sans faux caramel.
The title says it all, really. This is Cadbury's dairy milk chocolate with caramel. The caramel is encased inside a bite sized piece of chocolate.
Being a big lover of caramel, I'm eager to try anything which states it contains the sickly sweet stuff. I think I first came across the product a good decade ago and have loved it ever since.
The dairy milk caramel comes in a yellow and rich blue packaging wrapped around the bar. On the front is a perfectly simple design which cleanly states "Cadbury's Dairy Milk Caramel". As you turn the bar over, you're met with the nutritional information, ingredients and other varies things.
You get six bite sized pieces in total and as you softly snap the first piece off and pop it in your mouth, it instantly starts to melt. You get the satisfying Cadburys chocolate taste quickly followed by the sweet taste of caramel, both of which happily stay in your mouth long after the chocolate is swallowed.
However, as good as this chocolate is, there's a serious downfall when it comes to the nutritional values. 225 calories equal to 11.3% of your RDA, 22.7g of sugar equal to 25.2% RDA, 10.9g fat equal to 15.6g of your RDA, 6.4g of saturates, a whooping 32% of your Recommended Daily Allowance and 0.2g of salt, 3.3% of your RDA. Faced with these blood-draining figures, suddenly the Caramel doesn't seem as tempting.
Dairy Milk Caramel's are available pretty much everywhere that sells chocolate and are priced between 45p - 70p.
Overall, a fantastic tasting chocolate bar but you need to decide whether it is worth the calories.
I got a lot of selection boxes this Christmas so be prepared for a lot of food & drink reviews over the next few weeks lol. I am a bit of a self confessed chocaholic like most people I guess and any of the Cadbury range of chocolate I like because they have a great reputation for quality and taste. When I saw on the front of my selection box that it contained this chocolate I felt the need to eat it straight away, greedy cow aren't I? Hehe
This is based on a serving size of 10 blocks as that was all I could find even though the normal bar only contains 6 blocks of chocolate!
This bar is obviously very high in sugar content but then again so are most chocolate bars so as is normal this bar is great for a once in a while treat but not very good for eating everyday.
This bar is sooo nice but again as with most chocolates if you eat to much it can start to become sickly, so don't eat to much lol.
As with the ordinary dairy milk the chocolate itself is beautiful really rich and creamy and seems to melt on your tongue. The caramel contained inside the chocolate is proper thick and sweet and I think works really well the the very different texture of the chocolate.
Whats great about this bar is because its so nice and tastes so great it makes you feel like your having a real treat when your eating it, even though it is so widely available you could if you wanted to eat it everyday!
If you haven't already tried this bar where on earth have you been? And if you haven't already I highly suggest you get to the shop and do so. Each bar is only around 50-60p and a lot of the time they can be found on sale so you might be able to pick up a bargain.
If you like other Cadbury chocolates then I'm certain you will like this one to because the chocolate and caramel are a great combination. I love these and could eat them all the time, maybe just try and save myself and only eat one a week!

Cadburys Dairy Milk Caramel are one of the lines that Cadburys that I do love. These come in a whole array of sizes, mini, snack sixe, fun size, standard bars and huge bars. So there are sizes to please all
Look like a humped version of the dairy milk with individual rectangles which are filled with runny smooth caramel, these are great for sharing. Each one has the Cadburys crest on the top of each block of caramel. The wrapper stands out a bit with it being yellow in colour.
Around 50 pence for a 47 gram standard shop sized bar, this equates to being around £1.06 per 100 grams
About the Taste?
Very moreish and really sweet in taste, the runny caramel mixed with the Cadburys milk chocolate is a winning combination for me. Once you bite into the bar the runny caramel can be tasted straight away it makes it an intense chocolate hit. Really nicely balanced combination too, a real winner
These are not great for you at all quite high in calories 240 kcal per bar this is 480 kcal per 100 grams, over half the ingredients are sugar at 51 grams per 100 grams. The traffic lights have the sat fat, fat and sugar all as red and salt as amber so just we wary
Great taste, a bit high in sugar so be wary
