Cadbury's Mini Rolls
Advantages: tasty, sweet, cheap
There seems to be an increasing amount of cake bars around at the moment with all of the main chocolate bars now making cake bar version to. But in my opinion the original cake bar is the Cadbury's mini roll. These little cake rolls with there crème filling and Cadburys milk chocolate covering have been around since 1962 and make a lovely sweet treat. I remember having them as a child and they were always featured at tea parties for birthdays.
I purchased my last pack of mini rolls from Iceland as they have a special offer on a pack with extra free bars in and money off. I paid just £1.00 for a pack of 10 mini rolls which I thought was excellent value as some of the newer cake bars can cost more than this for just six.
The cake bars consists of chocolate flavoured sponge with vanilla filling covered with milk chocolate. The rolls themselves come in a cardboard lined plastic wrapper, with all the rolls individually wrapped in the signature Cadbury's purple plastic wrapper. There is limited information on the individual roll wrappers, with just a description of the roll and allergy information. If you require more detailed information then this can be found on the outer packaging.
Obviously a cake bar, covered in chocolate is not going to be the healthiest option but compared to a chocolate bar then they are a little lighter on the calorie front. A single 26g mini roll contains the following nutritional information:
- Calories - 116
- Protein - 1.1g
- Carbohydrate - 14.7g
- Fat - 5.9g
I love these Cadbury mini rolls and never get bored of them, the sponge is light and moist and the swirl of vanilla crème inside adds a nice texture and sweetness to the roll. The vanilla swirl is placed in the roll to look like the swirly 'C' at the start of the Cadbury's name which I think is a nice touch rather than just being a line running through the middle of the sponge. The sponge roll is then covered in delicious Cadbury's milk chocolate which is smooth and creamy. These mini rolls make an excellent sweet treat, addition to a lunch box or are also great at party's for children and adults a like. Also if you can find these mini rolls on offer they can work out much more cost effective than some of the more modern cake bars now available and taste just as good.
