      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      An impressive and cheap box for a gift - but sweet sickly and mediocre to eat

      ===The Product===

      600 gram box of Cadbury Milk Tray.
      Comes in the Cadbury purple box with cerise accents - different to the image shown above.
      Two layers of 29 chocolates.
      By appointment to Queen Elizabeth II.
      Suitable for vegetarians.
      100 grams is 495 calories.
      Long shelf life - mine was until June 2014.



      ===My Opinion===

      Cadbury Milk Tray have been around for many years - since 1915 in fact. The following year the chocolates were sold in a lidded box and they have been on sale ever since - though the packaging has changed slightly over the years as has the combination of chocolates supplied.

      I would say I have always thought of Milk Tray as a basic sort of boxed chocolate selection. Back in the 60s and 70s it was always a basic sort of gift and not one you were trilled to get - it did not seem as luxurious as some other brands like Weekend or Terry's All Gold.

      I must admit I never buy these chocolates and have not actually had a box for myself for many years. However this last Christmas I was given a large 600 gram box all wrapped up in cellophane. It was definitely large and impressive as a present - but not one I was very excited about eating. I was appreciative of the gift - but not over excited about the contents.

      Inside there were two large trays of chocolates - 58 in total. The box had a hinged lid with the images of the chocolates and their names printed inside the lid.

      This box contained ten varieties of chocolate but quite a few have changed to what I could remember. Some of the chocolates contained nuts while others contained soya - but these were all shown quite clearly inside the lid.

      These chocolates are all made with milk chocolate but one or two have white chocolate decoration on them.

      The range of chocolates is completely different to what I remember - my mum always used to like the orange one best and it used to have an orange creamy centre - now its a sort of truffle. The other change was that there was no coffee chocolate - great for me as I used to hate the coffee flavour ones anyway - but it does go to show that this might not be the same as you remember them.

      The ten chocolates included are as follows:

      Caramel Softy - this is a heart shape with lines on and may contain nuts. This one has runny caramel inside and a reasonable layer of chocolate - quite sweet and sickly.

      Hazelnut Swirl - again contains nuts. This is a round swirl of chocolate with a nut inside - just the same as I remember and one of my favourites as it is just mostly solid chocolate.

      Fudge Duel - an oblong chocolate decorated with white chocolate lines and contains soya - solid vanilla type fudge but easy to bite into.

      Exotic Delight - a square chocolate containing Turkish Delight - not very bright centre and quite sweet. Not one of my favourites as I have never really liked Turkish Delight much - though why they cannot just call it that I do not know.

      Orange Truffle - these contain soya and are made in the shape of an orange segment as they used to be. But now they contain a sort of truffle rather than the runny orange fondant they always used to have - to me they were not very orangy at al - just a hint of a flavour.

      Perfect Praline - contains nuts and soya - is a round chocolate with a mark on top - contains hazelnut praline. Just sweet and chocolatey like the others with nothing to distinguish it.

      Caramel - contains soya and is a square chocolate with white lines. A hard caramel that is quite chewy. This used to be my dad's favourite and I found it quite enjoyable - it lasted longer in my mouth as the caramel is quite hard to start off with and it wasn't so sickly as some of the others.

      Nutty Heart - contains a whole hazelnut with caramel and covered in chocolate. A heart shaped chocolate with a heart decoration on the top. Just more runny caramel and chocolate - a few of these are very similar.

      Strawberry Sundae - a strawberry shaped chocolate with a two tone red and pink fondant filling and covered in chocolate. These look attractive but I have never been fond of the strawberry ones as they are too gooey and sickly.

      Surprise Parcel - this one contains soya and is white truffle covered in milk chocolate. This is a square chocolate and looks attractive as if it was wrapped up with ribbon. inside the white truffle is quite hard and solid as if it was almost just all chocolate - not especially appetising for me.

      ==Overall View===

      Well I have now worked my way through the whole box of chocolates - well not really as I did not eat all the Turkish Delight ones nor the Strawberry ones. The other chocolates I did eat over a week or so - a few at a time - about two at a go was enough as they are quite sweet and sickly.

      My favourites were the hazelnut swirls followed by the hard caramels. To be honest I was not really fond of any of the others and many of them tasted very similar.

      As with all chocolates these are not healthy and are almost one quarter fat. Also with each 100 grams of chocolate containing 57 grams of sugar no wonder I was finding them sweet and sickly.

      The box certainly was large and impressive but I will definitely not be wanting any more for myself - give me a box of Maltesers or chocolate finger biscuits any day.

      For me there was not enough variety in the box and many were just the same sort of flavour. They are also very sweet and not something I really enjoyed eating very much at all.

      If you needed an inexpensive present for someone or a raffle prize then this would fit the bill but I don't think I would ever bother buying them for myself - no matter how reduced the price was.

      I am not sure how much a 600 gram box would have cost as they are now not listed online and are often heavily discounted in the supermarkets before Christmas anyway.
      However at present a 200 gram box at Tesco costs £3.50 or two boxes for £6. The 400 gram boxes have been on sale for £5 but have been reduced as low as £3 - so keep your eyes open before Christmas and you may get a bargain gift - but just not for me.



      ===Star Rating===

      3 stars. Box looks large and impressive but too much of the same sort of chocolates and way too sweet for me.



      ===Would I Recommend?===

      Only if you wanted a cheap present for someone.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Mostly amazing - but a few which stop it being the perfect selection box!

        ---Intro---
        My boyfriend and I were recently given a 400g box of Milk Tray from some friends, and I have been lucky enough to get to eat the majority of them (for once - normally my boyfriend eats all the nice things before I get a chance!) I was really happy with this as Cadbury's chocolate is my absolute favourite, so obviously I like Milk Tray! As the name suggests, all of the chocolates are milk chocolate, which is an advantage for those who aren't a fan of dark chocolates popping up in selection boxes.


        ---The packaging---
        The box is primarily the traditional Milk Tray purple colour, but this one also has some deep pink on it too, which makes it quite girly. There are pictures of the chocolates (with a brief description) on the inside of the box (I tend to refer to this as 'The Map!")

        Inside my box there are (well, there were), two trays, each containing 19 chocolates, so a total of 38. They do come in a variety of sizes of boxes - I got a bigger one for Valentine's Day this year. As a child a friend used to give me (and a couple of other girls) a smallish box (must've been 200g) of Milk Tray every Valentine's Day. This is the chocolate selection associated with love (and most people will remember the Milk Tray man) and has been around since 1915!


        ---Eating them---
        The box contains 10 different types of chocolate which I will describe briefly.

        Caramel Softy - a lovely gooey caramel filled chocolate - very nice

        Hazelnut Swirl - chocolate containing a hazelnut. I find this very similar to a Cadbury Whole Nut bar, and it's one of my favourites.

        Fudge Duet - This is basically like a small piece of a Cadbury Fudge bar. It's nice, but not one of the highlights of the box in my opinion,

        Exotic Delight - This is Turkish delight covered in chocolate. I am never quite sure about this one as I'm not a fan of Turkish Delight. However, it is edible, and there are only 2 of these in the box (whereas there are 4 of all the other ones).

        Orange Truffle - Described as "Milk Chocolate Truffle with an intense orange twist". It's certainly quite orangey. But it's not one of my favourites (and I can take it or leave it really whereas most of them I can't resist), and I tend to let my boyfriend have these.

        Perfect Praline - Described as "Hazelnut praline encased in a milk chocolate gem". This is a very nice chocolate.

        Caramel Chew - This is a very chewy toffee (rather than caramel) covered in chocolate. It's very nice (and it's probably the sweet which takes the longest to eat) - but be careful with your teeth!

        Nutty Heart - Like the caramel softy, except it also has a hazelnut in it. One of my favourites!

        Strawberry Sundae - I don't like strawberry flavoured sweets, so have given these ones to my boyfriend without even tasting one. He seemed to like them, but I didn't fancy them at all - I wish these weren't included in the box.

        Surprise Parcel - I don't recall these from previous boxes of Milk Tray, so perhaps they're new. They are a white chocolate truffle wrapped in milk chocolate, and look like a birthday present. I think this might be my absolute favourite as it's just so sweet and tasty - I like to eat it by sucking it until it's all disappeared!

        I find in general that the chocolates just melt in my mouth, and leave such a lovely aftertaste. I try to savour them...but can quite easily eat them quickly too!


        ---Ingredients etc---
        On the back of the box it lists all of the ingredients (which I won't list). It does say inside the packet which of the chocolate contain nuts and soya. However I imagine that if you have a severe nut allergy then you'll want to avoid completely .

        In terms of how bad they are for you...100g contains 495 calories. There are 400g in the box. Therefore my calculations suggest that each individual chocolate has around 52 calories in it. That isn't too bad if you limit yourself to two or three as I have been managing (amazingly well) to do with this box. However, it would be very easy to eat lots and lots of these!


        ---Finally---
        I LOVE everything Cadbury's - it's my absolute favourite chocolate. As a result I love Milk Tray. However, I do feel the box is let down a bit by including the strawberry ones, Turkish delight (even though it's renamed Exotic Delight it's still the same), and I would prefer the orange one to not be there and have more nutty and caramel chocolates! To be honest I think that if push came to shove I'd probably rather have a box of Cadbury Heroes, but I think I'd rather have these over Roses.

        Obviously chocolate vary a lot in price depending on where you get them and what special offers there are (often depending on the time of year). In Tesco for example a 200g box is currently £3.50. However, a 400g box (like mine) is currently also £3.50 as it's half the usual price. That represents good value for money I think, and I think I might buy myself a box for us to have at Christmas!

        4 out of 5 from me (would be 5 if they got rid of strawberry, orange and exotic and replaced them with the others!)

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A pleasant but fairly bland selection.

          My name is Julie I'm a chocaholic, seriously most of my 'over' weight is composed of the silky sweet treat. I have cut back dramatically on my choccy consumption, partly to save money but mainly to save my backside. However when I spotted a 400g box of Milk Tray in my local Co-op reduced to two pounds I couldn't resist the temptation. The normal price is around six! (£6 in Asda at the time of writing and £7 at Sainsbury's and other main supermarkets). In the 400g box you get two layers with 20 chocolates per layer, with ten flavours, each being repeated within each layer.

          I've never really been a boxed chocolate girl, preferring mine milk and straight from the bar or bag with few or no adulterations. Every now and then though I get a fancy for a change and while Thorntons or other similar high quality chocolates are my preferred choice a box of Milk Tray has always hit the spot too. I haven't eaten boxed chocolates for about three years and was looking forward to the indulgence. Everything seemed pretty much as I remembered it, though there is no coffee cream (hallelujah in my opinion) and the addition of a 'honey love' which is a strongly honey flavoured caramel, a thumbs down from me, but I can see that it could be a favourite for some.

          On opening the familiar purple box there is a nice waft of chocolatey goodness, however it's not that mouth-watering enveloping waft that I recall from days gone by and seems a little watered down somehow. There is a reasonable selection of flavours present in the box from orange and strawberry to fudge and caramel. Did I say a reasonable range, I should correct myself as I realised when I wrote the ' from this to that' bit that the only exception was the Turkish delight, and all the other flavours were toffee/truffle based which in my opinion doesn't give a wide enough taste palette. The orange flavour has morphed from a soft centre to an orange truffle centre which to be honest I wouldn't easily pick out as being orange flavoured unless I was told so. The strawberry flavour retains its soft centre but in my opinion is a generic sweet fondant which only vaguely resembles strawberry, however I don't think that is a change, and I seem to remember it always being a sickly generic goop. The Turkish delight square, which has always been my favourite Milk Tray chocolate, seems smaller than I remember and the filling doesn't seem to have that juicy rose flavoured zing that it once did the filling looking a dirty reddish brown rather than a vibrant ruby red. However it is still my favourite chocolate in the box.

          The other chocolates are pretty much as you would expect pleasant enough and quite satisfying, though for me the box was on the whole a bit of a disappointment. My daughter was kind enough to point out that perhaps the flavours don't seem as luscious as they once were because frankly I'm knocking on a bit now, and she sweetly reminded me that our taste buds don't work as well when were 'old' as when we're younger. However I refute this explanation (Pahhh! Tosh and nonsense youngster) as it's only a few years since I last sampled these chocolates. So I'm not recalling flavours from my youth in my dotage, but flavours from my optimistic middle age, to my less optimistic (cough) middle age.

          The chocolate while tasting ok and having a nice smooth texture seems to lack the thickness which makes a crisp click when you bite into it, and the rich creamy sensual depth of flavour that a good milk chocolate has. The fillings are pretty much of a muchness and I feel the selection needs something to stand out (in a good way not like the defunct coffee cream, apologies to all the coffee cream lovers out there) to give the box a feeling of a true taste bud tempting treat . The flavours are safe and inoffensive, but that means that there is no surprise or challenge and certainly for me no one chocolate which I would fight the rest of the family to get hold of.

          Despite my moaning I do enjoy these chocolates and at £2.00 on offer they were a superb buy and proved a nice treat enjoyed by the family. However I would no longer pay full price for my once favourite mid-range box of chocolates or be confident as giving it as a present on a special occasion. I find that I now prefer 'Roses' (chocolates not the flowers)to Milk Tray.


          Taken from http://www.ichange.com/nutrition/how-many-calories-in/milk-tray-chocolate each chocolate has approximately 43 calories! Ouch.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A lovely chocolate treat

            Cadbury Milk Tray chocolates have always been a favourite of mine. This Christmas we were brought two boxes of Milk Tray, whilst my husband does like them they are not his favourites as there are several varieties which contain nuts, neither of us like nut, however I will eat around the nut and throw that away whereas he will not even touch a chocolate if it has a nut in it, usually this sort of product doesn't last that long in our house, however we do still have one box left, I hadn't had Milk Tray for a while and I had forgotten how enjoyable they are.

            Milk Tray come in a very distinctive dark purple box, written on the top of the box in gold is the brand which is Cadbury and the words "Chocolates since 1915" right across the middle of the box is written Milk Tray in white writing designed to look like handwriting, this is the only information on the front of the box and it is repeated around all four sides. The bottom of the box is also dark purple and is covered in white writing which is very easy to read against the dark background, this includes a long list of ingredients, nutritional information, and the contact details for Cadbury, it also tells you how to store the chocolates. There is a tab on one side of the box which unsticks and opens the top of the box, the inside of the cardboard lid is white, it has the words "Cadbury Milk Tray" written in gold in the centre with a picture of all of the chocolates inside in a circle around it, underneath each picture is the name of the chocolate and also a short description of what each chocolate is.
            In a typical Milk Tray box of chocolates there are a variety of ten different chocolates, these include
            *Fudge Dream
            *Honey Love
            *Orange Truffle
            *Strawberry Kiss
            *Caramel Charm
            *Caramel Heart
            *Eastern Delight (Turkish Delight)
            * Hazelnut Heaven
            * Hazelnut Caress
            *Nut Secret
            The names of the chocolates are pretty self explanatory so you do not really need to read the description underneath, however it is there should you require it. I would definitely say that there is something for everyone in a box of Milk Tray, there are only 3 nut chocolates, which I have to say I was surprised at when I counted them as I was sure there was more, there is also a nice range of soft centres like the Strawberry Kiss, Caramel Heart and the Honey Love as well as hard centres like the caramel charm.

            Personally I am happy to eat any of the varieties of chocolates in Milk Tray, with the nut ones as I have said I will eat around the nut, although I have to say these are not my favourites, I would say that out of the list my favourites are the Honey Love, Caramel Heart and the Eastern delight. The chocolates inside the box come in a black plastic tray with each chocolate sat in their own section designed to fit the shape of the chocolate, this makes it easy to see what chocolate is what and compare them to the pictures on the lid of the box. The amount of trays of chocolates you get per box depends on the size of the box, we received two boxes for Christmas, one was a small box with just one tray of chocolates in it, the other was a slightly larger box and this had two trays of chocolates in it. You generally get approximately 2 of each flavour meaning you get around 20 chocolates per tray.
            The nutritional information on the back of the box is given per 100g which includes
            *Calories - 485
            *Protein - 3.9g
            *Carbohydrates - 63.5g
            *Fat - 23.9g
            *Fibre - 1.3g
            *Sodium - 0.14g
            Each large box contains 400g of chocolates so the calorie and fat content of Milk Tray is quite high, it does state at the bottom of the nutritional information that these are to be enjoyed as part of a healthy active lifestyle, this is certainly the case as I find that you cannot just have one at a time. For me these are just an occasional treat normally at Christmas time so I try not to worry about the calorie and fat content, these are definitely not something I would eat on a regular basis despite how much I enjoy them.

            Each chocolate is covered with Cadbury Milk Chocolate which you can clearly taste as soon as you have a chocolate, it is obviously Cadbury chocolate and it is as good as ever, it has that lovely sweet creamy taste and texture which all Cadbury Chocolate has and this is then complimented by the various fillings inside the chocolates. Personally I would say that all of the fillings go with the chocolate, there isn't one that I would say isn't right or just doesn't go. On the back of the box there is a box which contains allergy information which states that Milk tray contains Nut and Soya, this is just some of the chocolates, however all of the chocolates contains milk as well as traces of nut and soya, meaning that Milk Tray are not suitable for everyone. However the descriptions of the chocolates underneath the pictures help to identify which chocolates contain which substances such as nut.

            Obviously we didn't buy the boxes of Milk Tray ourselves however in Tesco a 200g box of Milk Tray costs £4.00, unfortunately I could not find out the price of the larger 400g box but I imagine it is around £7.00 from what I can remember. I would say that this is quite good value for money, you do get quite a lot of chocolates, I would not pay out this money for them on a regular basis. As a treat or a present I would say they are reasonable value for money.

            I would definitely recommend Milk Tray to any chocolate lovers, the box contains something for everyone whatever centres you like. They are ideal for the whole family and suitable for sharing. In my opinion they are the sort of thing you have on occasions for a treat, they are not the sort of thing you would eat on a regular basis due to the high calorie and fat content. Milk Tray will always be one of my favourite chocolate boxes and being suitable for vegetarians they are ideal. This is certainly a product I would recommend.

              Disadvantages

              A classic Box of Milk Chocolate assortments

              It had been such a long time since I had tasted Milk Tray Chocolates. I will always remember my mum eating these when I as a child and I would often buy a small box of Milk Tray for her as a present. In those days, Milk Tray seemed like it was the only Chocolate Box around and I am sure it as very popular....the advert on the TV was great!

              Milk Tray was introduced by Cadbury to the UK in 1915! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milk_Tray. I never realised it had been around that long.

              I was lucky enough to be given a box of Milk Tray as a Christmas present by my daughter. The box she got me is 200g in weight. Milk Tray comes in a purple coloured box and I must say every single Chocolate is very tasty! There are of course some that I prefer more than others; but I am certainly more than happy with all of the different chocolates in the box. Normally, I am not a great lover of Orange Creams or Strawberry Cream chocolates, but the types in Milk Tray are really nice. The orange chocolate (Orange Truffle) is like a truffle; it is not an actual orange cream and also it is not overpowering with Orange flavour. The Strawberry Kiss Chocolate is quite sweet, but still nice.

              **Chocolates in the Milk Tray Box**

              Hazelnut Caress (Hazelnut in Caramel)
              Nut Secret (Hazelnut truffle)
              Hazelnut Heaven (Hazelnut in Milk Chocolate
              Fudge Dream (Vanilla Fudge in Milk Chocolate)
              Honey Love (Honey flavoured Caramel)
              Orange Truffle (Orange flavoured Truffle)
              Strawberry Kiss (Strawberry filling with Vanilla fondant)
              Caramel Charm (Chewy Caramel in Milk Chocolate)
              Caramel Heart (Soft Caramel in a Milk Chocolate heart)
              Eastern Delight (Turkish Delight in Milk Chocolate)

              Ingredients
              ************

              There are loads of ingredients in these Chocolates and I think it would be boring for readers if I listed them!

              Allergy Information
              ******************

              I think it is more important to inform readers of Allergy information rather than listing the many actual ingredients.

              Some Chocolates contain Nuts and Soya
              All Chocolates contain Milk and traces of Nuts and Soya

              Calories
              ********

              100g of these Chocolates contains 485 kcals.


              After Christmas many shops had Milk Tray on special offer; however, they currently cost £6.00 at Asda.

              These Chocolates are absolutely delicious ; probably one of the best Chocolate selections I have ever tasted. Fully deserving of 5 Dooyoo stars in my view.

                Milk Tray chocolates

                And all because the lady loves........

                I love fancy chocolates and special chocolates but sometimes all you want is just a nice box of Cadburys Milk Tray and that is exactly what I have been tucking into the last day or two! According to an article I read, Cadbury's launched milk tray in 1915 and it is one of the longest running brands in the confectioner's portfolio. The name 'Tray' derived from the way in which the original assortment was delivered to the shops. Originally Milk Tray was packed in five and a half pound boxes, arranged on trays from which it was sold loose to customers. Today it is still one of the most popular boxes of chocolates in the UK selling over 8 million boxes per annum.

                In my opinion the best thing about these chocolates is that they are from Cadbury's, my favourite chocolate brand in the UK and always one that I know will be 100% tasty. They use a glass and a half of milk in there chocolate so it is always creamy and smooth and lovely! The box is the traditional purple Cadbury's colour and so is easily spotted on the supermarket shelves.

                Inside there is an assortment of fruit and sweet chocolates, guaranteed to provide a favourite for everyone in your house. I love the fruity chocolates and in this box there are a strawberry kiss which contains strawberry filling with vanilla flavour fondant cream and Orange Truffle with smooth chocolate truffle flavoured with tangy orange. The rest of the box is a really treat for caramel and nut lovers with various chocolates that either have gooey caramel of whole nuts. There is also an Eastern Delight with (yuck) turkish delight but for those who like this chocolate I am sure it's lovely, I gave this one away!! There is an interesting chocolate called Honey Love which I had never had before, a honey flavoured caramel which really did have a lovely honey taste and was nice and gooey and sticky. All the chocolates are well presented in that Cadburys have really gone to an effort to make each chocolate look like what it is. For example, the strawberry kiss is shaped like a strawberry with a leaf and seed pattern on the front and the Orange Truffle is shaped like an orange segment.

                The list of chocolates are as follows:

                Hazelnut Heaven
                Hazelnut Caress
                Nut Secret
                Fudge Dream
                Honey Love
                Orange Truffle
                Strawberry Kiss
                Caramel Charm
                Caramel Heart
                Eastern Delight

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Okay for those who are lovers of any kind of chocolate

                  This was a much appreciated gift from my neighbor but upon looking in my local tesco out of curiosity, they cost £4.99.

                  They came in a decent sized posh/classy looking cardboard purple box, with the colour mainly bein purple with streaks of different shades. There is gold and white writing in the centre in large elegant writing that reads 'Cadburys Milk Tray', with 'cadburys' in the cadburys font and logo. Inside the box, there's 2 plastic trays which are seperated by a purple divider. Each tray has there own little compartment for each chocolate.

                  The box can also be re-sealed which is handy.

                  The flavours included in the milk tray are as follows;
                  - Hazelnut Caress - Roasted hazelnut hugged by smooth caramel
                  - Nut Secret - Hazelnut in milk chocolate and truffle
                  - Fudge Dream - Vanilla Flavoured fudge drenched in milk chocolate
                  - Honey Love - Honey flavoured caramel
                  - Eastern Delight - Exotic Turkish delight locked in milk chocolate
                  - Caramel Heart - Luscious soft caramel encased in a milk chocolate heart
                  - Caramel Charm - Luxurious chewy caramel covered in a thin layer of milk chocolate
                  - Strawberry Kiss - Strawberry filling with vanilla flavour fondant cream.
                  - Orange Truffle - Smooth chocolate truffle flavoured with tangy orange

                  As you can see, some of these chocolates do contain nuts, so i'd be wary if you have a nut allergy and would advise to avoid the chocolates if you have a soya/milk allergy.

                  I really enjoyed these chocolates, they're elegant looking and the box is beautifully designed to be ideal for a gift for that special someone. I think they're overpriced but they are nice for a little something different and you can taste the quality. Some of the flavours such as the eastern delight and strawberry kiss were a bit too rich for me but i enjoyed them non the less. My personal favourite was the hazelnut caress and there was 6 of these all together.

                  I wouldn't buy these as a gift as they're so rich and have such a variety of flavour i'd rather buy a bar of milk chocolate for someone who enjoys milk chocolate or a bar of dark chocolate for a dark chocolate fan.
                  Overall they're a high quality product, presented nicely and very cute because each chocoate is designed to look like the flavour it is.

                  Would reccomend for yourself but not as a gift as there's no way of telling that the receipnt will enjoy the different flavours and richness of the chocolate.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    A posh box od Cadbury chocolates

                    The Box
                    The box is made of cardboard and is in the traditional Cadbury purple colour. On the front of the box is the brand and product name. This is also printed on all sides of the box as well as the expiry date. On the back of the box is the ingredients list, Nutrition information, contact information, size of box which is 400g, and symbols for recycling and suitable for vegetarians. Inside the box are printed pictures of the chocolates with their name and a small description. Also there are two plastic trays with the chocolates in.


                    My Opinion
                    I was given a box of Milk Tray for Valentine's Day and yes I have only just finished eating them as I much prefer a bar of chocolate. When looking at the box it looks very classic and is of simple design and I found it very easy to open. Once I opened the box I got a lovely sweet chocolate smell and noticed I got forty chocolates in all, four of each kind. They are easy to remove and distinguish from each other. I will now write a little about each one.

                    Hazelnut Caress - This has to be my one of my favourite ones, it is a smooth chocolate with a crunchy hazelnut inside which is covered in a sweet caramel. This chocolate is a heart shape with an m and t on top.

                    Nut Secret - This is another favourite, I really can't turn down a truffle. This has another hazelnut covered in a soft truffle which is then covered in a smooth chocolate. The chocolate is made to look slightly nut like.

                    Fudge Dream - Not a favourite of mine and went to my daughter but I did have one. The fudge is quite hard and as a creamy texture and covered in chocolate with white chocolate stripes. It is oblong in shape.

                    Honey Love - An ok chocolate, it is a honey flavoured caramel covered in chocolate and I found it just a little too sweet for me. It is made to look like a beehive.

                    Orange Truffle - This was a nice chocolate, an orange flavour soft truffle coated in chocolate. There was too much orange in it as I think if it had any more it would not have worked. It is shaped like an orange segment.

                    Strawberry Kiss - Another ok one, it has a strawberry gel and fondant inside which is supposed to taste like vanilla and is covered in chocolate. I couldn't really taste the vanilla and was over powered by the strawberry flavour. It is made to look like a strawberry.

                    Caramel Charm - This is my partners favourite, it is a little too hard for me. It is a hard caramel covered in chocolate with three stripes of white chocolate on top. The caramel does start to melt in the mouth once it has been there to thirty seconds or so and is quite sweet. It is a square shape.

                    Caramel heart - I like this one too, a lovely silky, soft and sweet caramel encased in chocolate. It is shaped liked a heart.

                    Eastern Delight - The one I do not like, but there has to be one in every box doesn't there. I had one just to write about it and was not happy when I hate it. It is like a solid jelly texture and tastes like roses to me and the jelly is pink. It is covered in chocolate and is square in shape.

                    Hazelnut Heaven - Another of my favourites, have you noticed all my favourites have hazelnuts in. It is a solid creamy chocolate with a crunchy hazelnut inside. It is a circle shape.

                    Overall the chocolates were ok but I wouldn't buy them for myself or for a loved one. If I have to buy a box of chocolates I know of better ones that worth the money spent on them. These just seem too expensive for what they are.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Nice chocolates.

                      I really enjoy Cadbury's chocolate and recently received a Milk Tray as part of a present, so I thought I'd review it.

                      The chocolates comes in the a distinct, Cadbury's purple cardboard box - with big writing saying Milk Tray on the lid. On the bottom is the nutritional information, ingredients and contact details

                      Upon opening the box you see that there are two layers of these chocolates - which already makes them so much better! Each tray has 20 chocolates, which means there are a total of 40 in the box - there are not just for one sitting!

                      The inside of the list tells you what each chocolate is, with an image of it next to it, and a short description. The images are actually really good for once, and I can tell which each is, with it's distinct shape, unlike many other boxes of chocolates.

                      There are ten types of chocolates altogether in this Milk Tray.

                      Hazelnut Heaven
                      "Whole roasted hazelnut whirled in milk chocolate"
                      This is quite nice, I'm not too keen on nuts but there was a nice soft chocolate around it and it was quite nice.

                      Hazelnut Caress
                      "Roasted hazelnut hugged by smooth caramel"
                      I love caramel and it's my favourite thing to have in a chocolate, but again this contained a nut which I'm not too keen on.

                      Nut Secret
                      "Hazelnut in milk truffle in milk chocolate"
                      More nuts?! Still not too keen on the hazelnut - but I like truffle and it was quite nice.

                      Fudge Dream
                      "Vanilla flavour fudge drenched in milk chocolate"
                      Yum - this is definitely one of my favourites, it has a really nice, soft fudge inside it. Just the right size too!

                      Honey Love
                      "Honey-flavour caramel"
                      I really dislike honey, so this is a no for me..

                      Orange Truffle
                      "Smooth chocolate truffle flavoured with tangy orange"
                      If you like Terry's Chocolate Orange, you'll like this - a similar shape, very nice, but actually slightly sickly.

                      Strawberry Kiss
                      "Strawberry filling with vanilla flavour fondant cream"
                      Most people's favourites are strawberry chocolates I know - this doesn't really do it for me compared to other brands of strawberry chocolates, but still nice.

                      Caramel Charm
                      "Luxurious chewy caramel"
                      When they say chewy - they mean it! This is nice, but so hard and chewy that I was scared it'd pull my teeth out if I bit into it!

                      Caramel Heart
                      "Luscious soft caramel encased in a milk chocolate heart"
                      Yum - definitely my favourite! I love caramel, and this is really nice..it only there was more!

                      Eastern Delight
                      "Exotic turkish delight locked in milk chocolate"
                      I hate turkish delight, so another no from me I'm afraid.

                      Overall, I do enjoy most of these chocolates, but there's a couple which I wouldn't mind if they disappeared!

                      Per 100g, these chocolates have:
                      485 calories
                      3.9g protein
                      63.5g carbohydrate
                      55.8g sugar
                      23.9g fat
                      13.4g saturates
                      1.3g fibre
                      0.15g sodium

                      The box I had was 400g, so I assume that this is per half a tray, or 10 chocolates, making each chocolate around 50 calories on average, which isn't too bad - but eat sparingly!

                      I believe these cost around £4, although I'm not entirely sure as they're always given to me.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Good quality chocs

                        Being something of a chocoholic I was very pleased to receive a massive box of Milk Tray from my friend at Christmas. Unfortunately, I couldn't bring it back to uni with me as I had far too much stuff to carry! So I reluctantly left it at home. I went back for the weekend recently and thankfully was able to retrieve my chocolates!

                        My generous friend got me a massive box with six of every type of chocolate, but they are normally available in small boxes with two chocolates of each type for around £2.70 or larger boxes with 4 of each for £5ish.

                        The box contains the following chocolates:

                        Nut Secret - Hazelnut in milk truffle in milk chocolate.
                        Fudge dream - Vanilla flavour fudge drenched in milk chocolate.
                        Honey Love - Honey-flavour caramel.
                        Orange Truffle - Smooth chocolate truffle flavoured with tangy orange.
                        Strawberry Kiss - Strawberry filling with vanilla flavour fondant cream.
                        Caramel Charm - Luxurious chewy caramel.
                        Caramel Heart - Luscious soft caramel encased in a milk chocolate heart.
                        Eastern Delight - Exotic turkish delight locked in milk chocolate.
                        Hazelnut Heaven - Whole roasted hazelnut whirled in milk chocolate.
                        Hazelnut Caress - Roasted hazelnut hugged by smooth caramel.

                        All chocolates contain milk and may contain traces of nut and soya. A few contain nuts outright so be careful if you have a nut allergy.

                        I like milk chocolate so this was a great selection on that account. My favourites in the box were easily Strawberry Kiss, Orange Truffle and Eastern Delight. I am a fan of fruit chocolates and I love Turkish Delight so this wasn't a difficult choice to make. In all honesty I was slightly disappointed by the box. This is no reflection on the quality of the chocolates (which were made as usual to Cadbury's high standards) but rather because there were so many caramel flavoured chocolates. Caramel really isn't my thing, sadly. However, this didn't stop me eating the chocolates!

                        I would recommend these chocolates to anyone who likes milk chocolate, Cadbury's chocolate and prefers caramel chocolates to fruity ones. Otherwise you might prefer Roses, or a different Cadbury's product altogether!

                        I'll give the box four stars, because they really are good chocolates, they just aren't my personal favourites.

                          Advantages

                          Disadvantages

                          Yummy milk choc collection

                          Well what can I say about Cadbury's Milk Tray.... I will start by stating that I am a massive Cadbury's fan (or do I now say Kraft). And I am yet to find a product of theirs that I don't really like.

                          You can usually buy two different size box's of Milk Tray, either with one tray or two. Each tray contains 20 chocolates, two of each variety.

                          The chocolate box contains the following chocs:

                          Hazelnut Caress - Roasted hazelnut hugged by smooth caramel.
                          Nut Secret - Hazelnut in milk truffle in milk chocolate.
                          Fudge dream - Vanilla flavour fudge drenched on milk chocolate.
                          Honey Love - Honey-flavour caramel.
                          Orange Truffle - Smooth chocolate truffle flavoured with tangy orange.
                          Strawberry Kiss - Strawberry filling with vanilla flavour fondant cream.
                          Caramel Charm - Luxurious chewy caramel.
                          Caramel Heart - Luscious soft caramel encased in a milk chocolate heart.
                          Eastern Delight - Exotic turkish delight locked in milk chocolate.
                          Hazelnut Heaven - Whole roasted hazelnut whirled in milk chocolate.

                          I usually list the ingredients, but because this is a mixed box the list is massive, so I wont bore you with it. But for those with allergies, the box states that all chocolates contain milk and may contain traces of nut and soya. Milk chocolate: Milk Solids 14% minimum. Milk chocolate and white chocolate contain vegetable fats in addition to cocoa butter.

                          I love to receive a box of Milk Tray on special occasions, especially as I am not a big fan of dark chocolate, so am happy that I can easily chomp away at the all of the contents of the box.

                          If you don't like chocolates with nuts in that there are a few choc's in this box that you wont like. But I find that there is a good enough variety to keep me happy.

                          And before I sign off can I state that if you plan to eat the whole box that these choc's are to be enjoyed as part of a healthy, active lifestyle!!!

                            .

                            This is my favourite box of Chocolates and when i'm off my diet on Valentine's weekend I will have a box of these in. Me and the hubby share a box, as I loke the Nut ones, and he eats the Cream ones and all the other non Nut ones.

                            You can get these in 2 different box sizes. Not sure of the weights, but the size of the boxes are the same, but the smaller 1 costs about £2.70 and you get 1 tray worth, and the larger one costs about £4 and you get 2 trays worth.

                            There is 2 of each type of Chocolates, or 4 if it is the larger box.

                            The packaging is ok. The Chocolates are in a plastic tray which they sit in a hole each. The outer cardboard part is a nice purple colour with a silver colouring on it as well.

                            So what flavours are you likely to get here? There is Orange Cream, Strawberry Cream, Turkish Delight, Fudge, Hard Caramel (which is still a bit soft and creamy), Runny Caramel, Hazelnut in Caramel, Honey Caramel, and Hazelnut in Chocolate. All the centres are in a Milk Chocolate shell, so no Plain Chocolate here. That's good for me, as Milk Chocolate is my favourite.

                            These Chocolates are Milky. Sweet and just nice. They aren't sickly, or greasy and they taste like good quality Chocolate. You would expect that from Cadbury's anyway and although they aren't quite as milky as Dairy Milk, this is some great tasting Chocolates.

                            I could live without the Fudge and Hard Caramel, as although I do eat them, they are always left until the last. They just aren't interesting to me. Also we always through the Turkish Delight out, as we both hate them. I know hubby would be all for a Coffee Cream in here, so perhaps we could get the Turkish ones out and replaced with another kind?

                            A nice box of Chocolates that is alright value for money.

                              Disadvantages

                              Wasted on me, but for the chocolate lover very nice!!

                              As I'm not a great chocolate lover, it did bring a smile to my face when for Christmas I as given two presents from my son. One being the Wii Active Personal Trainer DVD and a very large box of Cadburys Milk Tray. Well the Wii Active will come in handy as I'm always trying to shift the last few pounds and the choccies were meant to be the last supper I think! ( I think the plan was that I would open them and offer about as I don't eat them, but that backfired as I'm keeping them until Easter!!).

                              Now as never receiving boxes of chocolates I was pleased as they do make a nice gift, my daughter got 2 boxes at Christmas, so I was able to peruse her ones without opening mine!

                              This is a 600g box and on opening you will discover that it hs a deep purple paper wrapper, with a purple cardboard covering the trays.It has two large trays of chocolates with each tray holding 30 different types of chocolates.On top of the paper is a white card which has all the information you need to choose what chocolate you would like, which is just as well as I don't like pralines, truffles ect.....

                              I will start with the ones I do like;

                              ~~~Hazlenut Heaven~~~

                              Shaped in a round swirl this is a whole hazlenut covered in milk chocolate....yum!

                              ~~~Fudge Dream~~~

                              Just like a tiny minature finger of fudge, vanilla fudge covered in milk chocolate.....yum!

                              ~~~Caramel Charm~~~

                              A lovely chewy caramel chocolate covered toffee......have to watch the teeth with this one !

                              ~~~Caramel Heart~~~

                              A heart shaped chocolate with a soft runny caramel centre......yum!

                              ~~~Hazlenut Caress~~~

                              Again a heart shaped chocolate with Mx on the front, with hazlenuts covered in soft caramel inside....yum!

                              ~~~Nut Secret~~~

                              Sounds good until I read that it is a hazlenut in milk truffle covered in milk chocolate......yuk!

                              ~~~Eastern Delight~~~

                              They are coming thick and fast now the horrible ones, this being turkish delight covered in milk chocolate....yuk!

                              ~~~Strawberry Kiss~~~

                              Strawberry shaped ( like a heart again!) chocolate with a strawberry fondant cream filling......yuk!

                              ~~~Honey Love~~~

                              Cone shaped chocolate that has honey flavoured caramel filling......this really is honey tasting YUK!

                              ~~~Orange Truffle~~~

                              Here we go again with another truffle this time in the shape of an orange segment and filled with orange truffle...yuk!

                              So as you can see I only like about half of the box, but having said that I would only eat about two in one day anyway, as I would much rather have a box of all different types of cheeses in it, be it blue cheese, leerdammer, mature cheddar, five counties, applewood ect..... the list goes on and on !!

                              So if you love your choccies then this is a good selection to choose from and I would recommend these to anyone!

                              I believe that these chocolates usually retail for around £10 but at Christmas could be bought for just £5.00

                                Delish Chocs But Some Are Blatently Missing!!!

                                I haven't had Milk Tray in years but when we spent Saturday night in Stourport me and my mate popped to the local Spar on the way back to our static caravan and I brought a box to treat ourselves with.

                                The box I brought had 2 layers and cost £4.99 but this is from a Spar shop so you'll deffo get them cheaper in other places.

                                The box looks proper classy and I reckon these would make an ideal Xmas pressie for anyone, I know I'd love to find a box in my stocking next week! lol When you open the box the chocolates are laid out good as well and I like how they've printed the names of the chocolates on the inside of the lid instead of on a piece of paper inside because that ALWAYS gets lost.

                                The selection has changed big time since I last had Milk Tray and I don't think I like them quite as much now. They're still yummy but most of the soft centres have gone now and I think all of the chocolates are completely different. There's no orange cream, just 2 segments of a Chocolate Orange type solid chocolate and I was proper disappointed about that because I used to looooooove the orange creams. The coffee cream has gone too and there's nothing to replace that one and that's a shame because the coffee chocolates used to be delish.

                                The selection are nearly all solid chocolates now but there's still a good choice between the centres, there are about 10 or 12 different varieties of chocolates in the box so there's something for everyone. I reckon a box of these would be great for sharing on Xmas day instead of a tin of chocolates because there is so much variety. Loads of the chocolates in Milk Tray have got nuts in them, I like nuts so that didn't bother me much but my mate HATES nuts so she didn't get a good selection like I did.

                                The name Millk Tray tells you that the chocolates are all going to be made of milk chocolate and as soon as you open the box you can smell how creamy they are. The chocolate is typical creamy Cadburys chocolate and that makes them all taste proper good quality, the chocolate doesn't take over from the fillings like it would if it was dark chocolate and I reckon the shell of each chocolate is just thick enough.

                                They are proper yummy but I wish Cadburys would bring out another version that has got all the original chocolates in the box, I missed the coffee and orange creams the most but there was other omissions like the praline truffley chocolates that used to be in the box.

                                Disadvantages

                                Great cadburys taste

                                Cadburys milk tray are what I remember to be a 1980's chocolate box, but they are still around to this day. I remember the james bond type character sneaking into the ladies flat on the advert to deliver her some chocolates, stick in the mind more so than other adverts have done

                                The look?

                                The box is mostly purple as this is Cadburys brand colour, this has the MT initials on the lid. Each chocolate has its own individual shape and stamp on it so you will easily be able to find you favourite amongst the menu included

                                Price?

                                £2.99 for a 200 gram box, this is not too bad as this is mainly the packaging as it does sit in the gift chocolates catergory and not with the celebrations or heroes types. £1.50 per 100 grams this equates to.

                                About the Taste?

                                Great tastes and like most chocolates some are nice some are not so nice, strawberry crème is my favourite, this is in a milk chocolate shell, really tasty and very strawberry like too.

                                Healthy?

                                490 kcal per 100 grams which is high but that would mean eating half the box to have devoured this many calories, fat is on the traffic lights as red at 25.5 grams

                                Conclusion?

                                Great for a gift, good in moderation, great taste of Cadburys all in a luxury box

                              Milk Tray has maintained its popularity since the milk chocolate assortment - made with Cadbury's Dairy Milk - was first introduced in 1915.
