Cadbury's Snow Bites
Advantages: Taste OK, not expensive, Cadburys
Disadvantages: I find the crunchy coating is unecessary
I have been reading a few reviews of Cadburys Snow Bites recently and wondered if we should try some - I don't like to think that I am missing anything after all! When we were shopping in Tesco today they had some which were reduced to 50p per packet - they are usually 99p - so we treated ourselves to a packet.
The Snow Bites come in a sealed packet with a picture of a snow scene and the words Snow Bites on the front together with the traditional Cadbury logo on the top. The bites are described as 'chocolate balls surrounded in a crispy white dusted shell'.
The packet we bought was 100g and contained over thirty Snow Bites.
The Snow Bites
I opened the packet and inside was lots of little white balls about the size of small marbles. They were all covered in a white powder which looked like icing sugar.
The bites are actually made from solid Cadbury's milk chocolate covered in the crisp white sugar shell and then dusted in icing sugar.
I popped one in my mouth and, as I crunched the crisp shell, my teeth sank into the glorious Cadbury's milk chocolate inside. I then tried another one and this time I let the sugar coating dissolve in my mouth leaving the chocolate to be eaten on its own. I decided that whichever way I ate them they were very nice indeed although I would prefer them without the coating.
I wouldn't choose to buy these particular chocolates in preference to other chocolates in the Cadbury's range such as chocolate buttons or maybe a Crunchie. For me the crunchy coating is just extra sugar that I could do without, especially since I am a diabetic!
The Nutritional Information
The nutritional value per packet - 100g - is as follows:
Of which sugars 66.1g
Of which saturates 13.7g
I did try to weigh one of the Snow Bites on my kitchen scales so that I could work out the nutritional value per bite but the weight was so low that it didn't even register. Hey - I wonder if that means that they contain no calories if eaten individually? OK, I can dream can't I?
Well these are very similar to Cadbury's Mini Eggs and, although I don't think the coating is necessary it is actually nicer on the Snow Bites. I enjoyed eating them but probably wouldn't bother buying them again; as I said earlier I would rather have Cadbury's Buttons if I was going for this type of confectionary.
One extra thing that strikes me about the Snow Bites is that they would make a great decoration for any special cakes that you make at Christmas.
Summary: Not Cadburys best confectionary
