I am a big fan of Cadbury's chocolate and although it is not the highest in cocoa content there is something about the creamy taste that I just love. When I was a child I can remember being purchased Cadbury's dairy milk buttons on a regular basis and I will admit that I still love them now.
Cadbury's dairy milk buttons come in various sized packets from the smaller ones you get in multi-bags to larger packs and even giant buttons. The last packet I had was out of a multi-pack which currently retails at £2.46 and contains 187g of buttons split into mini bags.
The buttons come packaged in the plastic bags which are the traditional Cadbury's deep purple colour. On the front of the bag there is usually a printed character as these are marketed at children and also the Cadbury's dairy milk logo. On the back of the bag you can find ingredients listings, nutritional information and allergy advice. The bags are also really easy to open by just pulling each side away from each other to reveal the buttons inside.
The buttons are small round discs of Cadbury's dairy milk chocolate and are smooth on the top and have textured bottom printed with the Cadbury's logo. As soon as you open the bag of buttons you can smell the distinctive Cadbury's dairy milk creamy, sweet chocolate.
I like to keep my chocolate at room temperature rather than in the fridge as I think it makes it melt in your mouth and taste much creamier. The buttons are great for a little occasional treat for small children as the individual buttons pop into your mouth easily and begin to melt almost immediately. The chocolate has a lovely smooth and creamy taste which is very addictive and I can easily polish of a few bags of these. I also use the buttons in baking to decorate cakes and also trifles as they are easy to scatter on the top of cream or icing.
Personally I love the taste of Cadbury's buttons they certainly remind me of childhood and are another way to enjoy the great creamy taste of dairy milk.
Buttons have been around since 1960 and I am pretty sure that everyone has at some pont in there life had a packet of chocolate buttons. I have not eaten them for along time until today. A party treat for the kids but I couldn't resist and I wasn't disappointed.
Buttons are made with Fairtrade cocoa and fresh milk.
The buttons come in a sealed purple package the size of my hand and have a variety of cartoon style pictures on it. They can sometimes be tricky to open I have on a couple of occasion ripped and had them fly out the packet so be careful on opening.
These buttons are made by Cadbury and come in a variety of sizes the ones I had today are the size of a 1p coin. Each button is a perfect little circle of Cadbury chocolate which is like Cadbury Dairy milk only I think I actually prefer the texture of buttons. Each button also has Cadbury printed into the chocolate on the back.
Popping a button in my mouth it sticks to my tongue and melts slowly releasing the creamy chocolate taste. TThey do take a good few seconds to melt properly but it all part of the experience and if you pop a few in at a time the taste is even better. Each bag contains 175 calories which is a little high I guess but we all know that chocolate is not a healthy snack now is it.
Buttons also come in Giant form which are probably the size of a 50p but personally I prefer the child size ones it reminds me of being little and they taste great.
5 stars from me.
Buttons, surely everyone knows about them. I mean there cadburys and if you dont know that brand then you must live in a cupboard.
Anyway yesterday my mate punched me in the face, so today my nose is kinda hurting so i thought let me eat some buttons, as chocolate helps with shock ( thats my excuse lol ).
Packaging : Simple and sweet, my packet is a lovely deep pruple with white writing all over and a picture of cat with buttons for eyes, its very sweet and would be a real winner with children, as obviously children are drawn to pictures, so cadburys has made a good marketing ploy.
Taste and texture : They are lovely and creamy and very moreish, as soon as you pop one in your mouth it just melts and gives off the lovely rich chocolate flavour oryou can bite them and they have a slight bite to them, but either way they still melt in your mouth regardless. As they melt so quickly I think this would make them slightly safer for children as it would be hard to swallow it whole as it melts straight away.
Appearance : They are very modest with there looks they don't look very fancy, just simple medium brown small circles.
Where to buy : Well everywhere from your local sweet shop to a supermarket, there not hard to find as there very popular.
Nutrition and ingredients : Now a good thing about these are there isen't many ingredients...
Milk, sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, vegatable fat, emulsifer ( e422 ), flavourings. Thats it and i actually no what they all are apart from the emulsifer.
There are 175 calories per bag which is quite high but you do get a fair few buttons and theres 9.9gs fat which is pretty mad but hey your eating chocolate, its not going to be fat free now is it.
All in all these are great for adults and children alike and are delicious. I definetly recommend them but only buy one packet or else you might start getting a bit porky :)
What's wrong James? "Can-can-can-can I have those chocolate buttons I have seen in your cupboard??!" - Of course you can James! This was a conversation I had yesterday with my five year old cousin, and it takes me back to when I was his age asking my Mum pretty much the same thing.
Cadbury's buttons have long been a staple in our household, and many households alike, since their introduction in 1960. I find it amazing that they have been around so long, and there has to be a reason they have stood the test of time! As well as being a delicious treat for kids, since growing up and getting interested in cake making, I have found they are extremely useful for decorating chocolate cakes. My preferences is to place a button around the edge of the cake to form a circle of chocolate buttons, and usually there is enough left over to eat the rest of the packet!
As you may well know, Cadburys buttons are essentially little flat "buttons" of milk chocolate. Although some prefer galaxy chocolate over dairy milk, there is a distinctive Cadbury's taste with these that somehow wouldn't be quite right if made with Galaxy chocolate. Over the years, the buttons have gotten slightly smaller in size (my Mum informs me of this), however they are also available in "Giant buttons", so look out for those too!
Per pack, they contain 170 calories (8.4% RDA) and 9.6g Fat (11.7& RDA), which is perhaps alot less than standard bars of chocolate, i.e Mars Bars. This is another reason why it makes it an ideal treat for kids, and those who are trying to watch what they eat!
Whilst reviewing Cadbury Button's, I must mention the iconic packaging. As far as I can trace back, the packaging has always been a majestic purple (creamy white colour for the white chocolate buttons), which means it is very easy for Mum's (and kids!), to spot on the shelves when out shopping. The illustrations on the front of the packet have varied over the years, however this adds to the experience as children generally find such details intriguing. The current design of the packet is a chocolate button octopus!
So, do I have any negative points about Cadbury's buttons? Well apart from them running out, no! As they are individual, you can wrap up the packet and put them in the fridge to save for later which is ideal for kids because after looking after my young cousins, I know they can be fussy and suddenly decide they would rather play than finish their chocolate, which isn't as easy if they are mid Kit-Kat and want you to look after it. With Cadbury's Buttons, you can simply fold the packet over and pop the bag in the fridge for them.
Long live Cadbury's buttons!
Cadbury buttons are aimed at children really; they are presented in a little mauve packet which if I remember correctly when I was younger had a different scene from a nursery rhyme on the front. Despite this I have eaten these as an adult and they are very tasty tiny discs made with milk chocolate about the size of, well a standard button you would find on a coat or jacket.
These are a great little treat for children or someone who is dieting or may be just attempting to be healthier as if you had enough self control you could eat two or three and then pack them in the cupboard for another day. A typical regular bag of these contains 170 calories and 9.6g of fat and so I would say they are not too bad when like all confectionery enjoyed in moderation.
Anything made with Cadbury milk chocolate is going to be fantastic quality and have an unrivalled taste and as they are quite soft this also makes them suitable for tiny children. They can be used in baking especially adding nice decoration to a cake for example.
I like to take a banana and cut it down the middle but not quite all the way through. Then in this incision you place as many buttons as you can fit in, wrap the whole fruit in tin foil and place it on a barbecue or campfire usually in the burning embers. After a while you can take it off the fire, be extremely careful because it will be immensely hot but then you can open it and see that the buttons have melted and the banana has become slightly mushy, it is really tasty and possibly one of the best uses for Cadbury Buttons.
Cadbury's milk chocolate Buttons remind me of my chilhood, I would always have a packet of these on a Friday after school. I seen them in the shop yesterday so I thought I would pick up a packet for myself and my little cousin.
The milk chocolate Buttons come in a deep purple 30g bag and has a picture on the front. They used to feature illustrated nursery rhymes but now they have a picture of a owl, cat, panda, monkey or pig on them. The Buttons have become very popular in the UK and they are very popular with children too!
Each Button is made from smooth and sweet Cadbury chocolate, they are round and flat (shaped like a small button). These chocolate buttons are a great treat for children because they are small and you can control the intake that they haver because they are all individual in the packet. I would recommend that if your are not planning to eat them all in one go thenyou should keep them refrigerated. They should be kept in a coola nd dry place because my little cousin didn't want all of her and left them on the kitchen side; when she came back to eat the rest, they had all melted. Therefore they are very easy to melt.
I have found that these milk chocolate Buttons are great for cooking too. I have used the Buttons before to decorate a birthday cake that I made for my friend and they made the cake look and taste good! You can purchase a white chocolate version of these Buttons and you can buy the new Giant Buttons if you enjoy these. Overall I think that the Buttons are a great treat for kids, adults and cooking purposes but I would recommend to eat them moderately.
Cadburys milk chocolate buttons consist of small button shaped pieces of cadbury's milk chocolate. Since their introduction in 1960 they have proved extremely popular both in the UK and Ireland, with the range now including not only the standard 33 gram packs but also multipacks, and larger bags of 65 and 145 grams. There are also button ice creams, giant buttons and white chocolate varieties. Expect to pay around 40 pence for a standard bag and £2 for a 6 pack of ice creams.
A standard pack of buttons comes in a purple (easy to open) bag with Cadburys written in yellow at the top and buttons in white. Underneath there used to be illustrations from nursery rhymes. However, different animals, including cats and owls, now decorate the front of the packet. The buttons should be kept in a cool dark place (they are very prone to melt in hot weather so should be kept in the fridge in the summer) and will keep for several months.
A standard bag of buttons contains 170 calories, 18.1 grams of sugar and 9.6 grams of fat (of which 6 grams is saturated). As pure chocolate, these were inevitably going to be high fat. As it is quite a small bag, these make a handy snack for children or treat for adults, but should only really be eaten in moderation.
There's something very compelling about cadbury's buttons - although I don't have children, they remind me of when I was little - I liked them then and still do now - the chocolate is high quality, milky and rich, with a smooth texture that melts on the tongue. Also, although each individual button is small, the fact there are quite a few in the packet makes it seem you're getting quite a lot of chocolate, and they also take quite a long time to eat. All in all a fun way to have a small treat.
I bought these for my grandson as he is coming to visit this weekend and he is always looking for grandma's little treats and I do not like to disappoint him and hopefully he may share a few with me.
They come in a nice purple coloured foil type packet with the name clearly on the front and inside there are the Dairy Milk buttons around an inch or so, and big enough to place into their mouth to eat without them swallowing them, they are a soft, creamy chocolate and they melt in the mouth beautifully. They are flat on one side and curved on the other.
I bought these for 38p for a 33g bag and the bag size is perfect for the little ones to hold in their hands and eat them from the bag, and when the button is in the mouth it is not a sickly chocolate it is nice, soft and smooth with a lovely texture and perfect to chew until it melts.
They are also available in multi packs of 3 x 33g bags and there are also giant buttons which are more suitable for an older child but since these were for my grandson I have not bought them as yet but I have tried them before and they taste the same but just a little bit larger.
They are best stored in a cool place but can easily be placed in a fridge and I am going to use them when he gets a little bit older and use them on cakes and make some faces with them and we can bake together and have fun.
The texture is so good for little children and there are just enough in the bag for a nice little treat and snack.
I am going to place them in a low cupboard for him to find them himself and watch his little face glow when he sees them as he does not eat a lot of chocolate and sweets.
Overall I think the size of the bag and button is absolutely perfect for young children and the taste is delicious.
I give them a 5 star.
Thank you for reading my review.
The perfect kiddies treat!
Cadbury has been making chocolate since 1824, when John Cadbury opened his first shop which has now grown to be one of the biggest sellers of chocolate in the world.
Cadburys Buttons have been around since 1960. If you are unfamiliar with Cadburys buttons they are little button size discs of gorgeous Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate. The great thing about Cadburys is that they use a glass and a half of fresh milk in every half pound of milk chocolate and proper cocoa beans so the chocolate itself is amazing and creamy. It definitely has a very rich taste to it and in my opinion is one of the best chocolates out there. On one side they are smooth and on the other Cadbury's is written in little cursive lettering. The buttons are quite thin but definitely pack a punch. What I like is that sometimes if the buttons have melted a little bit lots of them stick together and you get a big bite with each mouthful. They are quite crisp and hard when you bite into them but get creamy once you have them in your mouth.
The buttons come in a little bag which is the familiar purple colour with a picture of a button on the front and there are probably about 40 ish buttons in each little bag. Each little bag is 32g. Each bag also contains 170 calories and 9.6g of fat. I think this is quite a lot for just a little bag of chocolate but one in a while for a treat it is not too bad. The ingredients listed are Milk, Sugar, Cocoa Mass, Cocoa Butter, Vegetable Fat, Emulsifier (e442), Flavourings.
I believe that the original buttons are the best but there are also white chocolate buttons and giant buttons now to tempt you!
My children love Cadbury's buttons, and after just finishing off the leftovers from a pack a bought to decorate a cake, I thought I would share with you that they are also yummy scrummy for adults.
The packaging is similar to how I remember it from childhood, with a little purple bag with 'buttons' in white writing, but lately they have a variety of packs with different animal faces on with buttons for eyes (oooh having just watched Coraline with the kids over the weekend that is now a little creepy...). The standard bag is quite small but enough for a child, and enough for a little treat for a big person. A bag usually costs me about 35p in the corner shop.
The buttons are about the size of a penny piece, smooth and ever so slightly domed on top, with a flat bottom with the word 'Cadbury's' printed on it. They are made of Cadbury's delicious dairy milk chocolate and so are lovely and creamy with a gorgeous chocolate flavour. They are brilliant, as I have said, for the children, and also for me they satisfied my sweet tooth without being overly sweet. They are also brilliant for decorating cakes and buns, and are gluten free which is important in our house.
I have always been a big fan of Cadbury's chocolate anyway, so these are another addition to their collection of products that I like. I don't paticularly like eating these because the packets of them are quite small and I like a good munch but they're fantastic for my son who is three.
Cadbury's milk buttons are small, flat round buttons about the size of a penny. The top of the button is smooth and the bottom has Cadbury repeatedly engraved into it in small letters. There aren't all that many in the packet.
They have the same great milky, chocolatey taste like their dairy milk bar. They also smell really nice when you open the packet which is nice.
There are only 189 calories in one bag of these which isn't bad really.
They are available from supermarkets like ASDA and Tescos as well as garages and convenience stores so they're easy to get your hands on.
I've never met a child who doesn't like these. They're ideal for young children and toddlers because they're soft chocolate that melt in your mouth and they are an easy size for them to pick up with their small fingers.
You can get these in multipacks or on their own. There is also a big bag available, with Giant buttons in which is available. A small packet will only cost you about 40p. The Giant buttons are about £1.50 a bag.
If you like these, there are other products that have these buttons on like birthday cakes and easter eggs that come with packets of the buttons which you might like to try. I've got my son one already!
Overall, I like these buttons, I occasionally eat them but I don't really think there's enough in the packet for me. I think they're a great idea for lunch boxes though! I'd recommend giving them a try if you haven't already.
Until a few weeks ago I hadn't had chocolate buttons for many years. The ones I came across were part of a Cadbury Selection box and I had eaten the rest of the contents and thrown the chocolate buttons into a drawer.
Anyway, the other night I suddenly had a chocolate craving and remember that I had put them in there.
The purple bag was smaller than I had remembered and the buttons themselves are smaller and thinner than I had expected. This size of bag is around 40 pence in most shops and the buttons are about the same size as twenty pence pieces, but round.
I find that they are not very satisfying eaten in ones and I prefer to eat them a few at a time. This may of course be because I'm greedy with them.
These come in white, or milk chocolate flavours and there are giant buttons o the market, but the ones I had were the standard milk chocolate ones.
For children these are ideal as they are not messy to eat and they are easy to handle, even for the tiniest of fingers.
I also have to laugh at my dog because if I put a Cadbury's chocolate button on my hand and a dog choc, he will sniff them both, take the Cadbury's one and leave the other. Not really suitable food for a dog, but it proves that there must be a very big difference in the smell.
As for the taste, well, dogs are no experts on that because they just swallow, so you will have to take my word for that; they are delicious, creamy chocolates.
I have tried buying bags of loose chocolate buttons from sweetie stalls in the market but the taste is different. None of them taste like the Cadbury's ones.
Yum, i've got a pack of these in my lunchbox today. I do like Buttons, but don't buy them that often. The reason I have a bag with me is that when in Asda last night we saw that the Easter Eggs are now out in force and the medium brand named Eggs are £1 just now. Deciding to stock up the wife bought enough to do who she wanted to buy for, as her reasoning is that Asda will hike it up to 3 for £5 like they always do. Always the cynic, but she reckons they do it every year, so why should this year be any different. I am a Chocoholic, and 1 of the Eggs lasted about an hour at home before I said to the wife "Can I get an Egg?" She obviously said yes, as I always start on Eggs early in the year and she knows to expect to have to buy the Eggs about 3 times over! Anyway the Egg I ate was a Buttons one, and now I have the 2 bags of Buttons left to eat today.
I think the bags have got smaller over the years and this isn't because this was in an Egg box, as the size of the bag is the same as the ones in the shops. Expect to pay about 45p for a bag. The bag is just a little purple bag with a picture of a Button on the front.
All these are are little circular bits of Cadbury's Milk Chocolate. That's it. Nothing special or fancy. I would say these are the size of a 1p, and you get a fair few in the pack. These are quite thin as well, and if you eat them from the fridge then they are cool and crispy.
There isn't mcuh else to say about these, as the phrase simple little bits of Milk Chocolate is all that they are.
Per bag these have 189 calories and are just nice as you get a sweet fix with these.
Perhaps not that exciting, but they are nice enough for me.
We have had alot of selection boxes for christmas that have got cadbury's chocolate buttons inside. I must admit that I haven't eaten chocolate buttons since I was a child but always bought them for my children when they first started eating chocolate because they melt in the mouth and are just plain milk chocolate not too rich for the little tummy's.
I would like to tell you about a bit of history about cadburys because they are a well known British company that we should be proud of and is one of the only British businesses that we have left and hope that they do not sell the company to any other business like Kraft and others. This company was started by a one man band called John Cadbury who opened his first shop in Birmingham in 1824 here he sold tea, coffee, drinking chocolate and cocoa this was an alternative to alcohol due to he thought alcohol ruined peoples lives. In 1831 he rented an old malthouse and went into manufaturing making drinking chocolate and he first experienced making chocolate here too. He then won an award from Queen victoria for his chocolate in 1854. In 1866 his two sons took over his business and delveloped cadbury chocolate more. Now we have all sorts of chocolate made by this company and it is the best chocolate around. They always thrived on being better than any other brand and I don't think this has changed.
I only had a small pack of buttons but there are bigger packs available or multi packs of the small packs in supermarkets and local shops. The small packs are great for children as a treat because they are the perfect size that will not overload a little tummy. The bigger packs are more of an indulgent pack for the older children or greedy adults like me.
They are in a dark purple packet with an animal picture on the front. There is the name Dairy Milk on the front that shows that it was from the Dairy Milk range that they developed and under that they have the product name buttons both written in white.
On the back of the pack there is an ingrediants list that explains everything that the chocolate contains. The best thing is that the chocolate is made from mostly milk which the company thrived on doing from the begining. It also has the list of nutritional information, as we know no chocolate is healthy for you but it is not as bad for you as some are as long as it is eaten in moderation. In a pack they are 75 calories which isn't too bad but you would still have to make sure you don't feed your children too many or eat too many yourself. The customer contacts and customer addresses are also on the back of the pack if you have any questions and queries. I don't think that you will find any complaints apart from they are morish. There is also a sell by date on the back that is usually for around 6 months.
The chocolate is milk chocolate and there is a handful of button shaped chocolate inside. They are small and round that are slightly curved on the top and flat underneath. On the underneath of the button is lots of inprints of the cadbury logo which is really sweet and makes it feel like a more personal touch. When you are eating these they seem to melt in your mouth. I have tried to suck them till they dissolve but I always chew them I have no self control with cadbury chocolate.
I think these are the fun part of eating plain milk chocolate, there is no added extras no unpleasant surprises, it is just nice flavours with plenty of milk in to enjoy when you are relaxing. They are a lovely chocolate for children which will not make too much mess, you will get some mess so please do not get deceived but it is easier than the other chocolates. These are also well priced between 35p and 45p a pack depending on where you buy them. These are worth the money and a nice treat for all.
When I had my cold last week my tastebuds disappeared, I mean I couldn't even taste the clove of garlic I licked to test my theory! lol Bet me breath stunk though!
A weird thing happened though, one day halfway through my cold my tastebuds came back for about an hour. It's mad but I was proper grateful for the repreive and ate my body weight in ANYTHING nice I could find in the house. I was too ill to go out but craved chocolate after a week of not being able to taste anything, I found a bag of my little sister's Buttons in the bread bin though and snidely ate them in the kitchen so she wouldn't want to share them! Bless, she's only 2 but I was feeling selfish, OK???
Buttons are just Dairy Milk in tiny button shaped discs. They're quite thin but have got flat bottoms so you can put 2 together for a bigger mouth full of chocolate. I'm glad they've used Dairy Milk because usually chocolate made especially for kids is worse quality than in the normal bars, this is the case with ALL Nestle kids bars but Cadburys are very good at using the same quality chocolate as for adults.
The milk chocolate is very smooth, it melts lovely in my mouth and is so sweet and rich. The Buttons are fun to eat and you can make the snack last for a long time if your patient enough to eat them one at a time. They're a bit wasted on me because I usually cram enough in my mouth so that I've got the equivalent to a chunck of Dairy Milk so I'm better off to buy the bar in the first place! lol
They're wicked for kids though because they come in a little bag so you can give them a few at a time, a bag is too big for my sister at the minute so we give the Buttons to her in about 3 portions over a couple of days. You can't do that so easily with a bar and that's one of the reasons we buy them for her, also the fact that she doesn't get into a mess with these but if you give her a bar of chocolate it'll be melting down her arm in 5 mins! lol
