If you read magazines or watch chefs cooking on television they'll tell you that the only chocolate worth buying is one with a really high cocoa content. It's supposedly better in every way. But if that were the case how come Cadbury's is Britain's best-selling chocolate brand by far? Let's be honest, that ultra-strong, ultra-dark stuff is nice for a treat or a gift from someone special but what most of us want is a basic chocolate hit and Cadbury's have been providing exactly that for generations. Their bars are cheap, tasty and deliver the goods straight to our brain's pleasure centres.
So combining that beautiful Cadbury taste with soft, runny caramel has to make a good thing even better, right? Especially if you can find them on offer as I did at just £1 for four small bars? Well... no, actually. The addition of the soft toffee centre in this bar just makes the whole thing a little sickly. Peel back the familiar purple and yellow wrapper and your nose is greeted by an immediate lovely chocolaty burst which promises heaven in a bar but after eating more than a few squares I began to feel a little queasy and didn't fancy devouring the whole bar at once (and believe me, I can chomp my way through a huge bar of Dairy Milk in one sitting). At 190 calories in a small Caramel bar that's perhaps no bad thing. While it tastes nice - very nice indeed - it does leave a little bit of a chemically aftertaste and certainly doesn't make you want to eat all of it in one go.
As with all confectionaries I can't recommend mass consumption wholeheartedly. You don't need me to tell you that eating lots of chocolate makes you fat and spotty. But they say that a little of what you fancy does you good and I'd certainly fancy a little more of this at a later date. But just a little.
It seems like ages ago since I had a Cadbury's caramel but in the space of two days my mum purchased me a Cadbury's caramel egg and a colleague at work brought me a bar of Cadbury's caramel. I have quite a sweet tooth at times and am a big fan of Cadbury's chocolate and caramel and had forgotten how much I like these!
The bar I was brought was the standard individual size caramel which can be found in most shops for around £0.60. I tend to only buy these when I see them on offer in multi-packs in supermarkets as then it is possible to pick up around 4 bars for £1.00 making them much better value. Cadbury's caramel can also be purchased in larger sharing bars.
The Cadbury's caramel comes wrapped in a waxy feeling plastic wrapper which is the traditional Cadbury's purple colour at the top and yellow at the bottom to represent the caramel. On the front of the wrapper is the dairy milk and caramel logos as well as the treat wise information of how many calories the bar contains. On the back of the wrapper you can find more detailed information including, ingredients listings, allergy warnings and full nutritional information.
As with any chocolate bar it is not going to be that good for you and as this one is made up of chocolate and caramel it is no exception. The bar itself does not tell you how many grams it weighs which I always find a little naughty of companies not to disclose this on the wrapper, but for each standard bar the nutritional information is as follows:
Calories - 225
Protein - 2.3g
Carbohydrate - 29.5g
Fat - 10.9g
Fibre - 0.2g
Sodium - 0.08g
When you open the bar it at first looks like a standard bar of dairy milk with it being split into 7 sections which you can easily break off. Each piece of chocolate is filled with the delicious, gooey caramel centre. Personally I love the mixture of the creamy chocolate and the smooth, runny, sweet caramel. I think some people may find the taste a little too sweet but as I have quite a sweet tooth I find it just perfect. I do not think I could eat any more than a bar this size as by the end it does start to get a little sickly but it is certainly another very enjoyable chocolate bar from Cadbury's.
This chocolate bar is awesome, Cadbury's genuinely produce so many great and wonderful products and people love the company and are quite rightly very proud of it, which is why many folks were fairly worried when it was acquired recently by the large American company Kraft.
This bar, the Cadbury's Caramel can normally be purchased for between 50 and 60 pence and is sold to you in a purple and yellow foil wrapper. The bar is split in to several pieces which are obviously made of the famous milk chocolate but what makes it brilliant is the caramel that it has in its centre. This caramel is not thick or chewy but it is soft and as you break the individual pieces from the bar you can sometimes see the streams or tiny strings of the caramel stretching between the piece you are taking and the other. The combination of this milk chocolate and the caramel is pure luxury and is tremendous considering the price. It does not take me long to finish of a standard bar of this Cadbury's variety as it is just extremely nice. You can buy larger bars of this which would be ideal for sharing with a partner or friends although I could probably eat one of those completely by myself also. Recently on the market now is a product called Nibbles, these in my opinion are a little like Buttons made of the milk chocolate with caramel in the middle.
This is a very sweet confectionery item but I think it is ever so enjoyable with a mug of tea or a glass of milk. Nutritionally speaking it is about the same as some of its contemporaries with it containing 225 calories 10.9g of fat so eaten in moderation I could not recommend this highly enough.
Caramel is one of the classic and iconic chocolate bars made by Cadbury's and is common place on any confectionary stand or in any Cadbury's easter or xmas boxes. These are usually priced around 50-60p for a single bar but you can buy them in multipacks of 5 for around £1.50 too.
The chocolate comes wrapped in a gold coloured foil with dark purple writing on it. Quite distinctive from the wrappings of other sweets and it does conjur up images of caramel from the colours.
The bar is divided into 6 segments which make it easy to eat (or share if you're feeling generous). The segment consists of a thick case of Cadbury's milk chocolate filled with a caramel filling. If you've never had Cadbury's milk chocolate before, it is very sweet and creamy and it melts beautifully inside your mouth. It's quite a mild chocolate I would say as it doesn't have a really strong cocoa taste to it like dark chocolate does. The chocolate layer is nice and thick and has a nice bite to it. The caramel layer inside is a very moist, fluid consistency. It's very sweet, rich and creamy and it too melts in the mouth very nicely indeed. It has a lovely toffee taste to it which goes with the chocolate very well indeed. You can keep the bars in the fridge which will give the caramel a thicker and harder consistency which is nice too.
For those concerned with nutritional values: each bar contains 185 calories, 18.8g sugar, 9g fat and 5.3g saturated fat. A hefty amount of each but then most decent chocolate bars are the same.
Overall, I would place Cadbury's Caramel within my top 10 favorite chocolate bars. It's sweet, substantial and delicious!
Cadbury's Caramel is one of my favourite chocolate bars, costing around 50pence a bar you get a bar divided into six yummy pieces of chocolate filled with caramel.
When I saw these bars on offer in our local B&M store, for £1.50 for SEVEN! I had to get them, at only 21pence per bar it was an absolute bargain.
The packaging of Cadbury's Caramel has changed slightly from years ago, where as it used to be solid yellow in colour, it now has the tell tale Cadbury's dark blue background with Dairy Milk written in the corner. The rest of the pack is like a goldy yellow colour with the word Caramel written across it. These bars used to be called just a Cadbury's caramel, where as now they call it a Dairy Milk Caramel. Still yummy whatever they call it.
When you open the bar, the six pieces are easily broken apart, so if like my girlfriend, you like to take your time while eating, these are perfect, you can eat them one by one without the caramel going everywhere. It's also good for just shoving in your mouth like you would eat a mars bar, thats how i do it!
These still taste as good as the first one I ever had, the caramel is so sweet and creamy, if you take these out the fridge they are nice as the caramel hardens up a little. You can tell the outer chocolate layer is definitely dairy milk. If you do leave it a while they melt nicely in your mouth.
These bars of chocolate aren't good for fat fighters, each bar contains 185 calories, 18.8grams of sugar, 9grams of fat and 5.3grams of saturated fat. Luckily this information is on the back of the packaging, so you don't even notice it before you eat it. Caramel bars can also be bought in a larger 230 gram packet. These are brilliant, I can easily scoff one down in a night once you start it you cant stop! These will cost around £1.50 in supermarkets
As with all Cadbury's products, if you are not happy just give them a call, tell them the problem and they will most probably send out some vouchers or something.
Overall, I love Cadbury's Caramel, it is the perfect mix of chocolate and caramel and is great to eat any time of the day! 5 STARS!
Cadbury's Caramel Bars were a Chocolate Bar I had now and again, but didn't really bother about them. But over the last few years I have got right into Caramel Eggs. So I tend to have 1 of these perhaps once a week. They are lovely, but perhaps a bit sweet and sickly.
You get these in individual bars which cost about 45p. you can get them in multipacks too, which cost about £1.70.
This is a Chocolate Bar which is in 6 sections. The bar is more of a rectangular shape and the 6 sections are rectangular shaped as well. They break off easily enough without the Caramel oozing out. The Caramel part is contained within a good amount of Milk Chocolate and the section is sealed all the way round.
The Caramel in this Bar is a thick, orange colour and you can tell by looking at it that it is pretty sweet. This is nice from the fridge when the Chocolate part is cooled therefore the Caramel is that bit harder, or if it is at room temperature then the Caramel is that bit runny, and although this way it can run out a bit and be a bit messy on your fingers if it dribbles out, or gets stuck to your chin, but it's ok.
There is 260 calories per Bar, which I though it alright. Sure it's not that great for you, but with the amount of Caramel that is packed into each section then I was expecting a few calories.
So perhaps there is nothing much exciting to these Bars. They contain Caramel and Milk Chocolate, that's it. If you want something a bit exciting in a Chocolate Bar, then perhaps this isn't for you, but if you like a sweet Chocolate fix then this should tick your box!
I love Cadbury's chocolate and treat myself to a bar every couple of days.
One of my favourite Cadbury's bars is the Cadbury's caramel. I have eaten this bar since I was a little girl and the taste is pretty much as good as it has always been.
The name of the chocolate bar has changed slightly...... it used to be called a 'Cadbury's Caramel' whereas nowadays it is known as the 'Dairy milk caramel'. I am not sure why Cadbury's tried to re-invent the bar but perhaps it just needed an updated look.
The wrapper is no longer a bright yellow colour all over which is the way it used to be. The wrapper now is a purple and bright yellow combination so that the colour of the Dairy Milk wrapper is there on this wrapper too.
When I take the bar out of the wrapper I can see that it looks exactly as I remember it. The brown coloured milk chocolate looks very delicious and I can see that the bar is divided into little segments that I can break off of the rest of the bar - there are six of these segments on the bar.
When I break off a segment I can see a thin thread of caramel oozing out of the segment I have broken off and it looks like it is a golden yellow colour and it is not too thick.
The texture of the caramel is just right and is not too thick which is good otherwise it would be more like a toffee filling. The caramel is very sweet and it tastes very nice alongside the milk chocolate. The caramel is very sweet like I said but it is not sickly thank goodness otherwise I wouldn't like the Cadbury's caramel bar!
The bar is available in a bigger size too and my local pound store has these in stock. The bar I usually buy is smaller though and it costs me around 60 pence from my local corner shop.
The Cadbury's caramel bar contains 480 calories per 100g which is not great but what chocolate bar is good for you?
I adore the Cadbury's caramel bars and I will keep buying them for years to come I think. I enjoy my little treat when I do buy it and I would suggest giving it a try out - especially if you have a sweet tooth and if you enjoy Cadbury's chocolate.
Cadburys Caramels are a bar of chocolate filled with runny caramel, these are in segments so can be snapped off, these come in different versions nowadays like cake bars or mini bite or bars
The bar is in seven segments, each one has the cadburys logo pressed into the top, when you bite into it a runny caramel is exposed. quite a thick chocolate exterior which I find is good for locking in the soft caramel
£0.49p for a 47 gram bar, these cost 7p more at Sainsburys, cant see why
About the Taste?
You can taste the cadburys straight off and the caramel seems to compliment it, the runny caramel tastes really smooth and sticky, a really great combination i think, one of the best Cadburys offer
All the traffic lights are red apart from salt which is yellow, 240 kcal per bar, this equates to 480 kcal per 100 grams, so a little bit on the high end calorie wise
Great smooth tasting caramel, fairly sweet in taste but backed up with the great taste of Cadburys
What is it people say about going into a shop feeling hungry...Oh yes you end up buying lots of treats that you do not really need.
Well I made that very mistake today, I had skipped breakfast as I was meeting up with a friend this morning and decided I needed a few items from my local somerfield afterwards.
Once I had returned home I realised that my shopping bags were full of treats and cakes that I knew I would end up HAVING to snack on. One of these items was a caramel bar which I noticed has seriously gone up in price from when I last bought one. They now cost 66p per bar!!
The packaging is the same as always, it is purple and yellow with Cadbury dairy milk caramel wrote on the front.
Inside you are greeted with a long bar of chocolate which can be seperated into 6 smaller bite size pieces. Once you bite into one of these pieces you will then find a lovely thick oozing caramel inside.
The taste is very nice too, the dairy milk chocolate is the first taste and then the caramel overtakes the chocolate and it leaves a very sweet and rich taste in your mouth. yummy. One bar is enough though as these are very sweet and too many could become sickly.
I used to love the bunny advert that went with these years ago, my god I am showing my age!, as they dont do them anymore.
Each bar contains:
May also contain traces of nuts, wheat and soya.
As you can see they are not the most health of snacks so would not be recommended for regular snackage, but as a treat now and then would be ok. It will maybe teach me a lesson not to go shopping on an empty stomach again!!
But would definatly recommend. ;)
I have mentioned on a couple of chocolate reviews that my all-time favourite bar of chocolate is a Cadburys Caramel and have up to now not submitted a review to the site giving my opinion on one. As I've just eaten one and the taste is still fresh in my memory (and mouth!) I thought it a good time to share my views on this bar that I love so much.
These have been around for a number of years and were advertised on the television by an animated female rabbit who tells us to "take it easy" and "relax" and enjoy the caramel chocolate bar. It really isn't a bar to rush as the caramel centre has to be savoured to be fully enjoyed.
Wrapped in its familiar yellow and purple wrapper the bar is instantly recognisable on the chocolate shelves. Nothing has changed on the packaging apart from nutritional information is now displayed and for a single bar you can expect to intake:
10.9g far / 6.4g saturates
Allergy advice warns that the bar contains Milk and may contain Nuts, Wheat and Soya.
Unwrapping the bar you notice the sweet smell of Cadburys chocolate, there are 6 cushion shaped segments filled with runny caramel and as you bite into one the sweet caramel oozes out and fills your mouth with flavour. The combination of chocolate and caramel works perfectly together and in my opinion is the most delicious and moreish chocolate bar available. These are the only bar that I would eat on a daily basis if I allowed myself to and I never get fed up with the taste.
I like to put my Caramel into the fridge before eating as this solidifies the centre slightly so it isn't as runny, and like to enjoy with a hot drink so that it melts in my mouth. To say they are delicious really is an understatement and if you haven't already tried one I would definitely recommend that you do so.
I highly rate these as you can tell, so I'm sure you won't be too shocked to discover that I would rate Cadburys Caramel 5/5 Dooyoo stars, I have no criticism with them whatsoever. Eat one yourself and discover how great they are.
This is the wonderfuly morish confectionary bar made by Cadburys.
The bar in question is 50g in weight and is made with Cadburys dairy milk chocolate and hidden inside is a scrummy caramel centre that can either be sucked out and eaten seperatly or munced together to give a lovely flavour.
There are many reasons why Cadburys make the nicest tasting chocolate which is not easily explained, could it be the way it melts in your mouth or is it the way eating a bar takes you back to your childhood when a chocolate bar was a real treat.
The bar comes in a purple and yellow foil wrapper which is easily opened with your teeth but not so easy with hands.
The bars can cost anything from 46p depending where you actualy purchase it from and is also available in a multi pack which is probably more value for money for money.
Each bar contains 185 calories, 18.8g sugars, 9.0g fat, 5.3g saturates and 0.15g of salt so definatly not to be eaten if you are hoping to lose weight.
I personaly never look at this information as I do like to have a treat every now and again and think ive worked hard for my fat bum so plan on keeping it (he he)
A great treat but not to be eaten every day unless you are in need of drastic weight gain.
I really like the Cadbury caramel bar, is not only one of my favourite Cadbury made chocolate bars but its also one of my favourite chocolate bars full stop. I do have other favourites but this is certainly in the top five and it did actually used to be my number one bar as well.
Its made by Cadbury and therefore contains that lovely Cadbury dairy milk chocolate that I love so much. Its really sweet and milky and it goes so well with the caramel flavour to give it a really soft sweet taste that I don't think any other chocolate manufacturer would have been able to achieve.
In a bar you get six separate chunks, they are all joined onto each other however do break apart. Each chunk is basically a caramel pouch locked in by a layer of the milk chocolate. The caramel is really soft and just perfect consistency to eat really. Its not too runny but its not thick at all meaning you can bite into it easily and it runs in your mouth with the melting milk chocolate as well.
If you like caramel products then you will love this, there's not a better caramel chocolate product out there in my opinion and I never tire of these bars.
Let of start this with a warning. DO NOT LEAVE THESE IN A BAG. Sorry for the capitals but if you would have seen the mess of the one in my bag you would understand exactly what I mean. I've just started one I bought yesterday and sadly if it was a car it would be termed a write off. The chocolate shell has imploded after being hit by something, presumably a book in my bag, the shell that should have kept the caramel inside it looks like its been devoured by the filling.
Oh well thankfully I have a none broken one too. Made by the kings of chocolate Cadburys we kind of know what to expect from the name. The Caramel bar is a bar of chocolate filled with rich caramel toffee and broken in to several mouthful sized pieces. Each piece is easily snapped away from the rest of the the bar and so it can be shared...I say can be but usually you wouldn't want to.
Well the bar starting with the soft milk chocolate which tastes exquisite only gets better as you bite into the chunk you've snapped off (there is 6 in a bar) and bite right in to the soft sweet caramel. This is where the bar really comes alive as you taste the smooth and excellent insides that mix both texture and taste perfectly. The obvious fact that the caramel is a toffee cousin is made obvious here as it has a light toffee taste and is similar to melted toffee. The bar can of course be messy, anything with a soft filling can be mess...but as long as you don't let it melt or get crushed you should be fine and mess free.

Overall an enjoyable enough chocolate bar with a nice centre, though not my favourite by any stretch of the imagination. The chocolate and centre do work well together but the chocolate seems to melt easier than other bars and the problem with thin chocolate can mean you either become chocolate covered or just a mess. Though not usually one to say this the Galaxy Caramel chocolate is better as it's thicker and sturdier than this one which seems too thin for it's own good.
Cadbury's Caramel is another one of life's little treats. If you eat too much of it, it will leave you sick and regretting it. Eat it once in a while and you will appreciate its great smooth sweet taste.
If you take in to consideration the effort and packaging then you realise how good it is. It is wrapped in a foil wrapper to keep the freshness and flavour within. The foil also prevents the chocolate from melting and turning your caramel dream into a messy nightmare.
Each bar is separated into 5 equal rectangular portions. I usually space myself between blocks to make sure I enjoy every bit of it and make it last as long as possible. I even sometimes save parts for later on, only to return and find that someone has eaten it on me.
The caramel is soft, light and smooth. It is not too sweet just perfectly hit on the dot. The way it tastes so good all the time is a brilliant achievement by Cadburys.
The normal sized bars usually cost from 55p to 65p, which is in a similar range to other chocolate bars in shops today. They are extremely nice and well worth what you pay for it. It is a perfect little treat.
Cadbury's caramel chocolate bar is by far my favorite chocloate bar for any given time or occassion. In Cadbury's history the caramel bar has been around a relatively short time, God knows why they didnt think of it sooner as it is by far the best of them all!
At first glance of the wrapping it is yellow in colour with caramel written on in the traditional cadburys swirly writing. They still have the cadburys touch of pruple also decorating it, reminding you that this is a cadbury's bar and to expect high quality. The wrapper is a foil type wrapper and easy to undo and peel off, and keeps the chocolate bar fresh inside (I am not sure if it is recyclable though).
The taste of this chocolate bar is why I am awarding it five stars. The outer edge is cadburys dairy milk, and it is split into squares. Inside each square is delicious caramel filling. The tatse of dairy milk compliments the caramel inside perfectly, making this one delicious bar!
The only very mild downside to this bar is that the inside is very sticky and it can get very messy, but surely that just adds to the fun?!
