Yum Cadburys Roses!! These chocolates really just remind me of Christmas, it seems to be the only time i ever actually buy them! I think that they are great to buy as an addition to a present, a get well gift or just to treat yourself! I remember always buying these for my teacher when i was moving up a class in primary school.
Cadbury UK entered the market in 1938 and Cadbury Roses were aptly named after the packaging equipment company that manufactured the machines that made and wrapped the individual little chocolates.
The flavours of chocolates in Roses are very famous and are easily recognised by their wrapper and are as follows:
Brazilian Darkness - a square shaped in red foil with yellow/gold ends
Caramel - now wrapped in blue foil (formerly was gold)
Hazel In Caramel - a moon shaped chocolate wrapped in purple
Country Fudge - a log shaped chocolate wrapped in gold
Dairy Milk - wrapped in a dairy milk wrapper
Caramel Keg - barrel shape in a gold foil wrapper
Hazel Whirl - wrapped in purple with orange edges
Strawberry Dream - wrapped in pink foil
Orange Creme - wrapped in orange foil
There is a choice for everyone so the majority of people are bound to have at least one or two that they like. Also everyone has their favourite flavour, though i can't decide between two - Brazilian Darkness or Hazel in Caramel. I love how the brazilian darkness is chewy caramel with bits of hazelnut in and its encased in dark chocolate whereas all the others are in milk chocolate. There always seems to be the same chocolates left at the bottom of the tin in our house.....how about yours?
There are several different packages of Roses - small, medium and large boxes, large tins and usually around popular gift times there is a large jar available too. Roses really aren't that expensive and are usually around £4.99 for a decent sized box, and at Christmas you can usually find the tins on offer but can range from £6.99 to £9.99 which again isnt really that expensive for the amount of chocolates that are in the tins.
Summary: A great variety of chocolates
