There were two things that made me buy this little known Cadbury's product. Firstly I had a terrible craving for something sweet and secondly I'd read a few positive reviews about them here on dooyoo. The package promised me "Scrumptious cadbury milk chocolate wrapped in a crispy shell" and I was intrigued to see how they would deliver.
I have to say I wasn't particularly keen on the all brown packaging(the dooyoo product image doesn't look like my pack) with a strip of traditional Cadbury's purple. To me it isn't too appealing though there is no denying it's simple and it does reinforce the idea of all the lovely chocolate contained within. Nutritional information is on the back, more about that later, reminding you just hown unhealthy your chosen snack is!
The best think about shots is their simplicity. After biting into a wonderfully crisp outershell you ar met with a solid ball of the cadbury's chocolate we all know and love. The chocolate isn't too hard or soft and even though it was pretty warm weather did not seem to melt. It has a very smooth texture and each shot is a decent size. A friend tells me that they are very similar in taste and texture to minstrels (I've never had minstrels so can't really comment) but are bigger in size. As bigger is always better cadbury's have won this round. Another bonus is that, as with most cadbury's products, these are vegetarien which minstrels aren't (or didn't use to be at least.)
I bought a 200g pack from East Midlands airport on special offer for a pound. This is obviously very cheap for an airport and I'd expect the normal price to be around 50p more than this. I think I got a bargain as they really are delicious and there's plenty to go around.
The nutrition as with all chocolate is where shots fall dosn. In every 25g eaten there is;
120 calories (6% GDA)
3.6g saturated fat(18% GDA)
15.4g sugar (17.1% GDA)
Therefore if you decide to scoff half the packet your eating a massive quater of your daily calorie intake not to mention 72% of your recommended daily allowance of saturated fat.
Nonetheless if you're in the mood for a tasty treat I definitely recommend keeping an eye out for these. I've never seen them before so they can be tricky to find but are a hidden gem. They make a perfect chocolatey snack.
