One of the easter eggs I recieved this year was a Cadbury Roses easter egg from my lovely Nan.
In the box you get a large hollow milk chocolate egg, made from Cadbury Milk Chocolate and a small selection of roses chocolates, all indivdually wrapped and in a seperate, small bag from the main egg. The egg is wrapped in a foil wrapping which is printed all over with the silver Cadbury logo, on a purple background. The egg is easy to break into, but is not pre cut or anything, so you can make a bit of a mess when opening it, but that is part of the fun I think.
Both the egg and the chocolates taste great, with a nice thick amount of chocolate for the egg, and a good range of Roses chocolates too. Needless to say, once this was opened, it wasn't around for long lol. I only knew what a couple of the actual roses chocolates were before biting into them, as I recognised these ones, but the rest were a bit of a guessing game as they dont come with any way of showing what color wrapping is what kind of chocolate! I got strangely confused because of this lol!!
The box is mostly blue, with red roses on the front and a Cadbury Roses logo too. There is also some information about the 2012 olympics, nutrition information, some information on the make a wish foundation and the national trust. The back of the box has some cute and make table cards, and some information on the easter egg trail. There is also some small information on one side about reducing packaging and saving the environment, but the box and packaging seem the same as last year to me!
The egg, per 100g (egg and chocs are 307g) contains 525 calories. 56.8 grams of carbohydrates, 30 grams of fat and 7.5 grams of protein. The chocolates, per 100g, contain 485 calories, 64.8 grams of carbohydrates, 12.9 grams of fat and 4.1 grams of protein.
Allergy information: Egg - Milk May contain nuts and soya (but they are not sure it would seem lol!) Chocolates - some contain nuts and soya. All contain milk, and traces of nuts and soya, so if you have a nut or soya allergy, do not eat these chocolates.
The egg and the chocolates do taste great, and I think this is a great easter egg to have, and if you see these in the shops for next year, why not grab yourself one as well as getting one for someone you love?
When I was visiting my mate the other day I noticed the shop by her was selling the Easter eggs for 2 for £8.00. This is for the large Easter eggs and I thought that was good value, I had to buy an egg each for my little sisters so I got them while I thought about it.
I gave the Roses egg to my 10 year old sister and she loved it, she got so many Easter eggs that she didn't mind sharing this one with me and it was delish so I deffo made a good choice!
With this egg you get a big Cadburys Easter egg and a small bag that had got about 8 Roses chocolates in it. The bag the chocolates come in was just plain see through plastic and that was a bit of a let down because I thought Cadburys would have put them in a pretty branded bag at least.
The chocolate egg comes in 2 halves so you haven't got to smash it to get some chocolate, as soon as you unwrap the foil you've just got to give the egg a bit of a twist and you'll get 2 complete halves. That's better than having to break the egg because it saves you getting bits of chocolate all over the place.
The egg is gorgeous, it's proper Cadburys chocolate and is actually better than the chocolate you get on Roses chocolates! lol It's nearly Dairy Milk but not quite, I've had quite a few Easter eggs over the weeks this year and have noticed that Cadbury ones are always the nicest because of them using proper chocolate like you'd have in a bar. I shared a Nestle egg with my mate the other day and thought the chocolate the egg was made of was mega cheap tasting and I didn't like it at all.
There is a nice choice of Roses chocolates in with the egg, in this one there was a Dairy Milk slab, hazelnut whirl, nutty caramel, toffee and other sorts that I can't remember now because we scoffed them that quick! lol
Another thing is that the chocolate on this egg is proper thick, not the skinny chocolate you get on some eggs. If you ate half the egg that would probably be too much chocolate all in one go and NO WAY would I be able to eat the whole thing because it would be waaaaaaaay too sickly.
Recommended..... delish chocolate egg with Roses!!!
I love cadburys easter eggs, the reason for this is that the easter egg it self is actually made from cadburys milk chocolate unlike other brands of easter egg who make there eggs out of cheap no brand chocolate.
The egg itself is a very reasonable medium sized easter egg, made from cadburys milk chocolate, the egg is moulded in two halves so that you dont have to break it to get inside just remove the tin foil and both halves will fall apart.
The egg has a picture of a bunny etched into it and some flowers.
In this box you also get a bag of sweets, sometimes this is inside the egg and on other boxes are at the top of the box depending on the size of the egg.
You usually get around 13 sweets in the bag all of which are from the cadburys roses range which can be found in a box or tin of cadburys roses.
These eggs range in price from £2.99 to £4.99 but asda are doing these two for £4 at the moment.
