Cadbury Magical Elves
Advantages: Candy pops well and chocolate is lovely.
Disadvantages: Candy could have been flavoured.
Well, its only coming up for the end of September and ALREADY the christmas choccies are up on the shelves! In our local Co-op is a shelve of Cadbury christmas delights. These include: Cadbury wishes stars, Snow bites, solid chocolate snowmen and these magic elves.
I bought 6 of these bars to share with my family and we thought they are a cute little treat.
These come in the traditional Cadbury purple packaging. They were sold in 1 elf packaging but i've heard you can get big packages of about 10, but i haven't seen them being sold around here so maybe thats just in specific places.
I didn't count how many designs of different elves there were, but all 6 of mine were different. they all had different names and different elve pictures on the front of the packaging. a few of ours were: Emerald, Ruby, Topaz and Citrine. All had different back stories.
Emeralds was: Devises ideas and designs for gifts that match the recipient, writes on all gifts (Christmas wishes and instructions) and wraps every present that leaves the North Pole - however, has a very bad temper and often wraps up other elves when cross.
These are quite nice for kids as they have different little stories on that they can enjoy.
When taking the bar out of its packet, it is sort of a slightly smaller and thinner version of a Freddo frog. It has a elve design engraved into the choclate, agian, this will appeal more to kids eating this bar.
The taste test:
Well, the chocolate is the good old Dairy milk bar, which i do love. Creamy and sweet. The new addition to this bar is it has popping candy! The candy pops wonderfully in the mouth and works really well! It dosen't have a flavour, just a sweet, sugar taste. I think i would have been cool for each elve to maybe have a different flavour. (i'e Ruby has strawberry popping candy.)
My thoughts and ratings:
I think this was a fun little treat, as did my family. I think that in future they should try out flavoured popping candy and see what public think! I think 1 elve comes to the price of 20p. This isn't awful, and if you are out shopping and the kids want a treat, it won't break the bank and is just the right size not to fill you up to much but to give you a choccie hit!
I rate this bar 4 out of 5!
Summary: a nice treat and just right for kids!
