Cadbury's Mini Rolls
Advantages: Individually wrapped, decent size, perfect for snacking, great taste
I make no bones of the fact I love my food. Would never pretend to be a foodie, as my tastes are fairly simple and predictable.Having a sweet tooth from being a child and loving any form of food that is carbs based, this particular food product fits the bill in so many ways: chocolate, cake and cream. Heaven!
These mini rolls come in afew different flavourings in regards to the filling in the middle and different pack sizes.But the one that was brought into my house ( I didnt buy them on this occasion ) was the mini rolls milk chocolate variety that contained 10 mini rolls, costing £1.50 from a local shop.
Who are Cadburys?
Cadburys was founded over 200 years ago. A family run business, it started off as a grocer shop in Birmingham that sold cocoa and drinking chocolate which then began to sell 16 varieties of drinking chocolate and 11 different cocoas. They moved with the times trying to be more cutting edge with their products, and began to create chocolate after the first chocolate bar was created in 1875. But their original product, which was cocoa, remains in their products today. Since those early days, Cadburys has been a familar, well loved brand in our everyday shopping baskets that has created many much loved products such as Dairy Milk, Curly Wurly, Chocolate Burtons, Roses, Milk Try just to name afew.
How are the mini rolls packaged
The mini rolls are packaged in a cardboard open white box which is then covered with a plastic wrapper. The wrapper itself is mainly purple in colour with a yellow strip around one end stating its a family pack and contains 10 mini rolls.On the fron is a picture of a mini roll on it with the words ' Mini Roll ' on the top.In the corner it tells you there are 10 individually wrapped mini rolls inthe packaging and obviously the brand logo ' Cadburys ' also in the corner. On the back is advertising in the form of a picture of another Cadurys product, nutritional information, ingredients and company contact details.
Each roll inside the package is individually wrapped in plastic that mirrors the colouring and design of the outer packaging with ingredient details on the back.

What do I think in regards to taste and product overall?
Mini rolls are roughly 4 inches long. They are basically rolled up chocolate sponges with a vanilla cream in the middle and the whole thing is dipped in chocolate. They are moist, chocolately but not too much. Because they are milk chocolate in flavour rather than dark, they arent sharp in taste or too strong. They are not too sweet, and dont feel clawring in the mouth.The sponge itself melts in the mouth quite easily and theres just the right ratio between the sponge and cream. I dont find these filling, so great for a snack on its own or maybe with a hot drink.
I love the fact that they are quite small and individually packed as it means they are easy to throw in my bag and eat out and about if needed. It also maintains freshness because if they werent in their own wrapper and you opened the whole box but only ate afew at a time, air would get to it and they would dry out.
Great snack for both kids and big kids alike! Perfect for sharing.
Would I buy these again?Yes I would.Its great they have different variations of this product so it makes a nice change and gives you an option, but overall Im more than happy with these scrummy pieces of chocolate goodness.
Summary: Chocolate sponge goodness eaten in 3 bites or less
