“ Brand: Cadbury's „
I used to buy these Cadbury trifles from Sainsbury's Local in a three pack and I remember them costing £1.79. For a while I didn't have them then when I was at that section one time to see if they still had them it seemed that they had stopped stocking them. Anyway, at my local Tescos I found them again but in a new double pack. The price was 99p so assuming they haven't changed the size, of which I cannot be sure, then they're better value.
It seems Cadbury are really trying to break into the desserts sector as they had all sorts of cakes and éclairs and so on and I wondered if these would be as I remembered. As you may be able to tell, these are not healthy. Annoyingly, they don't have the traffic light wheel on the front but hunt on the packaging and you'll find that they contain about 250 calories per pot which sounds about right.
They come in a brightly purple coloured cardboard sleeve traditional to Cadbury colours. The pots are see-through plastic with a foil lid.
The trifle is made from several layers. The first is a layer of whipped crème. Now I think this is really pretty as they've done a crimpled effect. The cream is like what comes out of spray can of Anchor though if possible even sweeter. Then you get a layer of thick chocolate sauce. Of course, this is Cadbury so it's good stuff. After that you get the chocolate mousse with slightly thicker consistency and is only slightly thinner than in the Cadbury mousse pots. Right at the bottom is a layer of chocolate sponge which is very soft and fluffy. I like eating it bit by bit as it's very very sweet and I know some say sickly but I really like them.
At 50p a go, they're not the cheapest but it's got almost all the different ways you can eat chocolate in it. Lovely.
For anyone who loves Cadbury Chocolate Trifles but doesn't want to eat the full fat version, then a Cadbury Light Chocolate Trifle is the next best thing.
Whilst the description displayed by dooyoo is for the Light Chocolate Trifles, the photograph shows an image of the full fat version. However, Cadbury have since ceased manufacturing triple packs, and they are now only available in packs of two.
I have purchased this range for years and was initially a little dubious when I saw them only available in twin packs as I thought Cadbury might have also reduced the size of the actual trifles. However, I am pleased to report that the trifles pots are still exactly the same 90g in weight.
The two pots are contained within an outer cardboard packaging, which proudly displays the well-known purple and white Cadbury logo in the upper left hand corner. We are able to see an image of the delicious looking chocolate mousse contained within the trifle, which takes up a large proportion of the front of the packaging. As the twin packs have only recently been launched, the right hand side of the packaging contains a vertical bright yellow banner informing us that these are a new twin pack.
The trifles are contained within transparent plastic pots and are sealed with a foil lid that has a small lip that is easily removed. The trifles look and smell absolutely gorgeous, but obviously the real tester is in the taste.
In my opinion, as I am a great lover of chocolate, the trifles are sheer indulgence in a pot and contain a reduced fat chocolate mousse, a smooth chocolate dessert, chocolate chips and cream. I find with some reduced sugar/fat products that they differ considerably from the full fat version, but other than the slightly bland cream, the remainder of the trifle is somewhat tasty.
The only annoyance for me with this brand is the transparent plastic pots that Cadbury use for the trifles. As the pots have lots of ridges running vertically throughout the whole of the pot, the trifle gets trapped, making it virtually impossible to remove the whole of the product. Cadbury seriously need to consider redesigning the pot without the ridges so the entire trifle can be easily removed.
Each pot contains 130 calories, 3.9g fat, which is half the fat of the normal Cadbury trifle.
The nutritional values for this product per 100g is as follows:-
Energy KJ 585
Energy Kcal 140
As with many food products, these trifles were produced in a factory which uses nuts in its' other products, so they cannot guarantee the trifles are nut free.
This product is not suitable for vegetarians as it contains pork gelatine.
This product also contains soya/soybeans and wheat
You can purchase Cadbury Light Chocolate Trifles from most supermarkets and they are currently on sale in Tesco for 99p for a twin pack.
I would highly recommend these trifles and have probably spent a fortune on them over the years! As the cream is a little bland, Cadbury Light Chocolate Trifles lose one star from me.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
This review is for Cadbury trifles, as pictured, rather than the light trifles of the title - I'm not sure why the picture and the text don't match, so I'll assume either is fair game.
If you're a Cadbury fan and a trifle fan like me, then this dessert s provides the perfect marriage of the two. It's rich, chocolatey and very indulgent.
I think the best feature for me is the combination of layers - 4 different types of goodness all in one pot. The first layer consists of fresh cream, the second of liquid milk chocolate (almost like a sauce), the third of crumbly chocolate chip cookie and the fourth, largest layer consists of chocolate mousse. It all has a really nice 'melt in the mouth' consistency. All layers are equally lovely and can be enjoyed individually if that's how you prefer it. Personally I like to dip the spoon right down to the bottom of the pot and end up with some of each layer in a single mouthful. I would say the whole trifle is definitely more than the sum of its parts!
Yummy as they are, they're pretty rich and, despite not really being a cream fan, I'm glad of its addition here as it lightens the taste.
The trifles come in 3 packs, each pot weighing 100g. The pack costs around £1, which is actually quite reasonable for a quality brand, when you consider the price of many other yoghurt/mousse/trifle type products on the market. One pot does provide enough for a small dessert. Although I find myself craving more when I've finished, they're rich enough that I know a second one would just seem sickly.
The plastic pots are clear so that you can see all that lovely chocolatey-ness inside, presenting even more of a temptation when you see them sitting in the fridge. They have a simple foil peel-back lid, and all three pots are contained within a cardboard sleeve of typical Cadbury appearance. The information given is minimal - just the very basic nutritional details. Rather shockingly, each pot contains 15.3g of fat and 23.6g of carbohydrates (most of which, I assume, are sugars - the third ingredient listed is 'sugar solution'). Actually I hadn't really looked at this before, and now find myself thinking I should try the 'light' versions. Jeez, no wonder my jeans are getting tighter.
The packaging doesn't provide the guideline daily amounts etc that we've become so accustomed to seeing on foods. Perhaps Cadbury are just admitting that this is a terribly unhealthy product, and that to include all that calorie-counting stuff would just highlight the point!
Apart from the deliciousness, another benefit of the product is that you can keep the pots afterwards. They make useful little paint-holders etc.
I was going to strongly recommend these trifles, but reeling as I am from looking at the fat content, I will just say 'approach with caution'!
Cadbury's truffle yoghurts are a relatively new release from Cadbury's and they're a small pot of sweet goodness!
The first layer is a light whipped cream which breaks way to the chocolate below. There's little chocolaty bits in it as well which make it extra yummy!
The pots are 150g each and have around 170kcal in them and have 7.2g of fat and may contain nuts.
The yoghurts can be found at most food outlets and are around £1.70 but if you're having a few people round, want something to treat the kids with or just have something for yourself then they're great!
They're not a healthy option though (obviously) and there are some places that might offer an alternative but these yoghurts are really if you want to indulge and forget about the diet.
So head down to your local supermarket and remember to put some in your basket, curl up with a movie and enjoy what these yoghurts have to offer because I doubt they can be beat!
