Advantages: Taste lovely, crunchy chocolatey snacks
Disadvantages: Don't appear to be widely available
If I mention the phrase 'Cadbury Shots' you could be forgiven for imagining a lovely chocolately alcholic drink! (That sounds quite tempting actually! I wonder whether Cadbury's have thought of creating something like that?) The reality is that these are actually a lovely new range of chocolate treats from Cadbury. Well, I say 'new' and the packet that I've just devoured also says 'new' but, surprisingly, I've just noticed that there are reviews on this product dating back to 2003, so presumably they have recently been relaunched?
Anyway, I fancied something chocolatey today and being at work this morning, it needed to be something that I can share about the office without leaving myself short! I've never seen these 'Shots' for sale anywhere before but picked them up from a local corner shop, paying £1.30 for a 200g bag. There are actually a reasonable amount of chocolates within the packet too, so plenty to go around for everybody.
Basically, the Shots are Cadbury's version of giant sized Minstrels but, obviously, made with Cadbury chocolate rather than Galaxy chocolate. If you're a fan of either Minstrels and/or Cadbury's, chances are you'll find these really moreish. The sweets actually resemble large round Maltesers but, bite into them, and you find the hard sweet shell of a Minstrel followed by a sweet, soft, creamy Cadbury centre. They are gorgeous! As both the shell and the chocolate centre are both incredibly sweet, it might limit the amount that you can reasonably eat in one sitting without making yourself sick! (In fact, I might have had one too many myself. They are one of those snacks that you can't help but keep going back for one more!)
I'd say these chocolates are definitely for sharing and would make an ideal treat to sit down and watch a DVD with. I haven't noticed them for sale in any of the main supermarkets but I will keep my eyes out for them in future and suggest you give them a 'Shot' too.
Summary: Good Shot, Cadbury!
