“ Brand: Cadbury's / Type: Milk „
I have always liked Cadbury's Milk Tray. And first off there is no difference between Milk Tray original and the Special Edition.
The boxes are slightly different. This special edition one is kind of silver and purple.
As all Cadbury's chocolate these are delicious and obviously the quality is amazing. If there is one thing i miss about Milk Tray is, if i remember correctly, years ago they used to do coffee creams. They were divine. Anyway, let me tell you whats inside....
Firstly we have ......
Strawberry, the delicious chocolate with strawberry centre. We also have Orange - same again but with orange flavour creamy centre. Eastern Delight - this is just a turkish delight basically. Caramel Charm this is a gorgeous chewy caramel. Fudge - basically a chocolate fudge and Hard Caramel, Hazelnut Caramel, Praline Truffle. I pretty much love all these except Turkish Delight, i have never really liked them. But im sure all you guy's will love them. There are two layers of these lovely chocolates.
You can get these 454g box Chocs for around £4.99 from supermarkets like Tesco or Sainsbury's.
I recommend you these chocolates. They are worth their money.
And so, for my first foray into the "Food and Beverage" section, I've went for the coward's way out (no, not suicide), and taken an easy option: the ubiquitous Flake bar - the crumbliest, flakiest milk chocolate in the world.... Ahem - sorry about that. Note to self - do not repeat Mr.Cadbury's advertising blurb or people will think you're plagiarising. Now where was I? Oh yeah, Flakes. Chocolate bars and other sweeties tend to come and go over the years, depending on their popularity. I'm still mourning the loss of Splicer bars, Pacer chewy mints, Relays (they were far superior to Toffets - they didn't shatter your tooth enamel when you bit one for a start), and in particular I am suffering the loss of the coconut variety Boost bar to this day. *sob*. So it is a testimony to the popularity of a choccy bar if it is a particularly long-lived one, and Flake fits into this category quite neatly. They've been a top seller for as long as I can remember, and I know for a fact (coz I've seen the adverts on one of those "Top 100 Adverts" thingys) that they've been on the go since the late 60s. Therefore, they must
be at least half-decent not to have been pulled from the shelves by now. Of course the (in)famous advertising campaign that has been synonymous with the Flake bar may well be responsible for this - you know the ones I mean: a tasty young filly, usually with little or no clothing, having a sensuous chomp on a Flake while her bath overflows or her rowing boat drifts through a waterfall. Which happens every day where I stay. Well it would if we had a waterfall. Or a bath. So, what about the bar itself? Well, it tastes really good, which is no insignificant statement. I'm not a fan of Cadbury's milk chocolate, as it's usually a bit sickly for me, but Flake chocolate is different to Cadbury's usual Dairy Milk choccy, being slightly less sweet and a bit drier. The bar is well known for being crumbly and flaky (hence the name), and does tend to make a bit of a mess when you eat it, but then that's half the fun - you get to pour the crumbs out of the packet into your slavering gob once you're finished it. Flake bars have a peculiar place in British social circles - you never really see anyone eating one, but everyone seem
s to like them. And of course, if we didn't have Flakes, we wouldn't have 99 cones. Or chocolate crumbled onto cheesecakes. I could go on...... So, really, what can I say about a chocolate bar? Not much. It tastes good, and for around 30-35p a bar (depending on which shop you go to), you do get value for money. Can't say fairer than that. Right, that should do. I'm off to let the bath overflow now.......
Chocolate. Mmmmmm. It’s one of my little weaknesses. I don’t have many – cheese, whisky, and . . er . . . more cheese (!) being the usual suspects. However, as this is my centenary opinion, I decided to tickle your tastebuds with words of chocolate. I hope you enjoy them! Once or twice a year, if I’m lucky, Mr Moomin will present me with a box of chocolates. This year, on our 3rd anniversary, it was a box of Milk Tray – Limited Edition. Now I thought the tag ‘Limited Edition’ was reserved for cars and CD’s but it appears I was mistaken. It is also applicable to chocolate. Alas having not had an ‘ordinary edition’ box of Milk Tray for a while (hint hint), I am by no means qualified to tell you what’s different about this special edition. For all I know it could be only the box that’s changed! Predominantly ‘cadbury purple’, and not just a boring old square either (check out those curves!), with the funky new mt logo picked out in a silver holographic-type fashion, this is one good-looking box of chocs. However, what really matters is what’s inside, and that’s what I’m going to tell you. Pay attention please . . . There’s strawberrykisscaramelcaresspralineparfaiteasterndelightcaramelheartmeltingmomenttr uffle-iciouscaramelcharmfudge-tasticsoftwhisperhazlenutheavenorangetruffle . . . . . . Oh my, oh my, oh my indeed! Is your mouth watering yet? Mine certainly was – I couldn’t wait to get stuck in . . . . As you would expect from Cadbury, the quality is superb, and the descriptions on the ‘instructions’ do not disappoint. The ‘luscious chewy caramel’ of the Caramel Charm, the ‘deliciously smooth truffle’ of the Truffle-icious, and the ‘exotic turkish delight’ of the Eastern Delight – all taste exactly like they should. You won’t know
which one to choose, believe me. My favourite would be the melting moment. No – the strawberry kiss. No – the caramel caress! In fact all of them . . . except . . . the nutty ones. You see, I am allergic to hazelnuts. If a bit of hazelnut so much as brushes my lips, they swell up like ballons. It's not life-threatening, but not a pretty sight, I assure you! This means that Mr Moomin gets to share my choccies. He is graciously allowed to eat all the nutty ones, of which there are . . let me see . . four! The rest are mine, all mine. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ I could give you a list of the ingredients, or tell you how much fat per 100g is in this box of delights. But I’m not going to, because you can read it for yourself on the box, if you feel so inclined. A word of warning though - it does say in capital letters that ALL SWEETS MAY CONTAIN NUT TRACES - so if you are one of those people who is extremely allergic to any type of nut, I'd be very careful. Sainsbury’s are currently selling the Limited Edition for 4.99. That’s for a 454g box – enough chocs to hand round after a dinner party, and not too many that you couldn’t sit and eat them all while watching a soppy video on your own . . . . But I reckon you’ll have to be quick. Nowhere on the box does it say how long the Limited Edition will be available for, and I haven’t seen it for sale anywhere else. It was only available for 48 hours in the Moominhouse – and took a great deal of effort to keep it around for that long! Mmmmmmm. Two layers, 12 varieties, 48 chocolates, one happy moomin.
Fancy a treat - try this limited edition Milk Tray box for those special occasions.......
