Advantages: It's Cadbury Dairy Milk. What's not to love?
Disadvantages: There just aren't enough to share.
I think that it's fair to say that every kid in Britain has eaten Cadbury's Buttons at some point in their childhood. It's a creamy chocolate taste treat that most of us remember fondly and some still secretly partake in as an occasional indulgence. But as we grow into adulthood we are supposed to leave 'children's' sweeties behind, aren't we? Well Cadbury's research and development team have come up with the perfect answer to this problem in their Giant Dairy Milk Buttons.
The pack is the usual Cadbury's purple (the colour of royalty, another way of signifying that this is a luxurious treat) and as soon as you open the packet you know that this is going to be a fabulous product. A huge waft of cocoa smell bursts on your nostrils bringing back memories of every delicious chocolate mouthful you've ever had. Even before I popped the first one into my mouth I was salivating in anticipation. As soon as it hit my tongue I knew that I wasn't to be disappointed.
They still have the same great taste as all Dairy Milk products but are about the size of a two pence piece compared to the regular buttons' approximate one penny piece size. And to further appeal to the adult market there's a friendly 'Fair Trade' logo on the familiar purple bag. If you shop around you can get them for £1 for a big 175g bag.
Being that bit bigger than the conventional Buttons made for tinier hands, these chocolates are a little thicker and give a satisfying bit of resistance when you bite into them. This is even better if you keep them in the fridge - that makes them snap when you bite down. Then of course they melt in your mouth to become the silky, thick, creamy Cadbury's taste that we as a nation love so much.
Honestly, these are just a more acceptable way for big kids to eat sweeties and if you can get past that and the well-known health issues associated with eating too much chocolate then they're delicious.
But there's just one problem: with these Giant Buttons being so large there's only room for a handful of them in the bag.
Summary: A slightly different way of getting a CDM fix.
