      A lovely treat!

      Dairy Milk Caramel

      The eggs are very attractive; they come wrapped in a yellow and purple foil. They are available to buy from most places that sell sweets for around 50p around Easter time.

      These Dairy Caramel Eggs are very tasty; the chocolate combined with the lovely rich caramel creates a lovely taste. They are very sweet, and whilst I find that whilst eating one of these, I can't wait to take my next bite, I don't think that I could eat more than one at a time as they are incredibly filling and do become quite sickly after a while. So I would say that one of these is the perfect amount, smaller and it wouldn't be enough and bigger and it would be too sickly sweet.

      These eggs taste exactly like Cadbury's Dairy Milk Caramel bars, however, I would say that I much prefer these eggs as they have a much chunkier texture and a lot more caramel than the bars. And so even though I think that they taste the same, I think that it is the texture of these chunky eggs that make them better than the bars.

      I love Cadbury Crème Eggs however, when compared to these, it is hard to choose a favourite. They are both quite different in a way; I would say that the Crème Eggs are very sweet when you are eating them, however, with the caramel ones, you get the sweety aftertaste. I find that the caramel ones go better with a cup of tea.

      One egg will set you back 195 calories, which is quite a lot, but oh so worth it as an occasional treat. One egg will provide you with 1.9g protein, 24.0g of carbohydrates and 10.2g of fat. So all in all, not the healthiest or most nutritional of treats - however, I think as an occasional treat, especially at Easter, they are fine.

      The eggs are filled right to the top with caramel and so be careful as they are quite messy to eat and can leave your fingers all sticky. These are the kind of things which I do not like to eat when I am out and about as they can be messy, and there is nothing worse with having sticky fingers when you are shopping or something. I like to save mine to have with a cuppa for when I get home.

      I would definitely recommend these!

      Thanks for reading!

        Disadvantages

        Ok for a change.

        Cadburys Dairy Milk Caramel small eggs are available on the side of the checkouts and i have also seen them in little baskets in the smaller supermarkets and local convenience stores.

        They are attractive like the creme eggs, but I must say that you could only eat one of these as they are a bit on the sickly side for my liking.

        Retailing at 50pence per egg although i have paid 60pence for one in my local garage, where the prices tend to be a bit on the high side.

        Comes rapped in a yellow and blue foil with cadburys and dairy milk a name that you can trust written on the side of it. Easy to unwrap provided that you have placed the egg in the fridge first as if you allow the eg to get warm at all then it is totally impossible to open with a nice clean openning, without leaving some of the wrapping on the egg.

        With Easter having been and gone, I did indeed receive an Easter Egg well a few to be honest from family and friends, and inside one of my eggs was two of these small caramel eggs, and having a fancy to a bit of chocolate the other night whilst watching a dvd i decided to give them a try, but you would not be able to eat more than one at any sitting, as they are quite sickly, and are not in my opinion as nice as the traditional Cadburys Creme Eggs. The chocolate although of great quality tasting, sweet and lovely, it just didnt seem to have that extra thick bit at the top like when you bite into a Cadburys Creme Egg.

        But saying that it was nice in its own way. The centre containing a creamy dark centre that was a thick but sickly caramel, slightly different tasting to that I have eaten in the Cadburys Caramel Bars.
        Ok but not something that I would go out of my way to buy.

        I did like them but as they were a bit on the sickly side, I have saved the second one for one of my grandchildren to have when they next visit.

        Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          One of my favourite chocolates.

          I got two of these Caramel Eggs as part of an Easter egg I got for Easter. Luckily I had had them before so I knew that I would like them. They are made my Cadbury's and are part of there Easter range of chocolates.

          --- The Wrapper ---
          The small chocolate egg comes wrapped in foil that has been printed on with yellow and purple colours to make it aesthetically pleasing. The colours and the logos used are the same as the ones that you would find on the a Cadburys Caramel Dairy Milk bar. Printed on the foil is most of the product information at the bottom in very small writing.

          --- The Egg ---
          Each egg is 5cm tall and 3.5cm diameter at the widest point. This makes for a nice sized egg that is suitable as a snack or as part of lunch. Once unwrapped, the outside of the egg is brown in colour and is made from Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate. It has a very simple design embossed into it to make it aesthetically pleasing.

          As I had put mine in the fridge, it made biting through the chocolate quite hard as it is quite thick, about 0.3-0.5cm. The chocolate has a lovely sweet taste that is just like Cadbury's Dairy milk. This makes the first few bites very nice and makes me want to eat more. Once you are about a quarter of the way down the egg, you get to the caramel filling. It seems that the egg is about three quarters full, which is good when you eat it on a warm day as it means it doesn't all come out on the first bite.

          The caramel has a lovely sweet taste to it and has a really nice flavour overall. It doesn't taste like cheap caramel at all and it lives up to the high quality Cadbury's name. The mixture of the dairy milk chocolate and the caramel makes it quite a sweet product, however I have never found it to be too sickly at all.

          There is not any nutritional information on the wrapper of the egg, probably as it is too small for it to fit. I do expect that it won't be very healthy and have quite a bit of sugar in it, however I don't think this is too bad as I only have them once a year and will probably only eat one or two in a whole year. It makes a nice treat, especially when you need a sugar boost!

          --- Overall ---
          As these only come round once a year and I never eat too many of them, I am going to give these 5/5 as they are very nice to eat and make a great treat/snack. They may be high in sugar and probably quite unhealthy, but sometimes you just need to treat yourself!

          Thanks for reading.

            Nice once in a while

            I am a massive fan of Cadbury's Crème Eggs so I suppose it was only a matter of time before I got round to trying the Cadbury's Caramel Egg also. The idea is simple enough; a thick milk chocolate shell filled with lots of gooey caramel.

            As this is billed as a Dairy Milk product, you would expect the chocolate to be of decent quality. Sure enough, it doesn't disappoint! I love the rich taste of Dairy Milk, in my opinion it is the best chocolate in the world!
            The egg is full to the brim with caramel, so be warned, it can get a bit messy. At this point I guess it comes down to how much of a caramel fan you are. For me, there was a bit too much caramel in this egg and it was a bit overpowering. I found these eggs to be a bit too sickly, much more so than the Crème Egg. This was definitely because of the caramel. However if you really love caramel this may be just the thing for you!

            Personally I could manage one of these as a rare treat but any more than that and the sicklyness would be too much for me.

            Cadbury's Caramel Egg retail for about 50p each but I have seen them on sale for 3 for £1. They are nice enough but can not compete with the Crème Egg for over all gooey, delicious satisfaction. The chocolate is nice enough but there is just too much caramel for my liking!

            A delicious alternative to the Crème Egg

            I truly adore Cadbury's Crème eggs and always look forward to eating a few each Easter. When going to buy some of the usual eggs I noticed this Caramel variety and could not resist the temptation to buy. Well, I'm sure glad I did. I absolutely loved it.

            It comes foil-wrapped just like the Crème egg, but the design of the wrapper is based on the Cadbury's Caramel bar. The Caramel egg is the same size as the normal Crème egg. In the same fashion as the normal crème egg, there is an outer shell of thick Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate. The inside of the egg (or the "yolk" as I like to call it) consists of a lovely, silky, syrup-style filling; just like you get in a standard Cadbury's Caramel bar. The combination is delicious, and I just can't get enough of them. They are currently just 10p in my local Home Bargains store and I've bought loads of them.

            The taste is just adorable. I love Cadbury's Caramel bars but I think the eggs are even better. Maybe it's the thick shell, or maybe it's the fact that there's more filling than the bars. Either way, it works perfectly.

            They can be a little fiddly and messy to eat. Once you break the shell the filling can start to run out (and it's very sticky). This means that generally I finish the whole thing in just a few seconds, which is a bit of a shame, but the taste is worth it.

            One note of caution, try to avoid eating them on a warm day or storing them in your pocket. The chocolate soon melts and it gets real messy trying to unwrap and eat a melted egg.

            Unfortunately, they aren't all that good for you. There is a large fat and sugar content which means it's high in calories. But hey, everyone deserves a treat once in a while.

              Disadvantages

              A treat for easter

              On the back of eating countless Crème Eggs over Easter it seemed time to try something else. So when I walked into a store recently and saw a similar product by the same people (Cadbury's) that seemed to combine the brilliance of an egg shaped snack with another one of their great products, the Cadbury's Caramel bar. These are currently being sold off in many stores, with B & M sticking them on the shelves with a clearance price of just 20p (2p more than some of the Nestle alternatives).

              Much like the bar that it derives it's name from it's tin foil wrapper is gold and purple (though like a Crème Egg it's foil and not plastic) with the family "Cadbury", "Dairy Milk" and "Caramel" daubed across it in several places. Inside the wrapper is a plain chocolate egg, it has a star in the middle of both sides with ovals around it carved into the chocolate. In the centre of the egg you have a delightfully smooth, sticky and sweet caramel filling which using Cadbury's brilliant dark and delightful caramel that has seen their bars become so popular. The egg is only just more than a mouthful in size which can feel a bit of a problem, but in regards to taste it's brilliant, like a mini Cadbury's Caramel bar.

              So the problems, as mentioned the size is ridiculous, the pricing of 20p is due to the place trying to sell them off and open up shelf place, usually they are double if not triple that price. They are also usually only available around, or over the Easter weeks which is a shame as they are really nice, though it is the size that is the biggest problem. With out forgetting that they are effectively "mis-shaped" caramel bars the price and size are both problems when compared with the full and proper bars, so this is a bit of a problem really.

              The packaging features no nutritional information though it does give some warning for allergy suffers, though it must be said that it isn't very clear and you really need to look to find them. The product contains Milk and Soya and may also contain traces of nuts.

              Overall the product is very likeable though sadly due to it's similarities to other product it actually seems to hinder the product as it matches up badly to both the much larger Caramel bar and the much more unique Crème Egg. Although it's enjoyable and tasty it's hard to justify buying instead of a Caramel, try one just to say you've tried it by all means but I wouldn't advise staying with these for long.

              Disadvantages

              A nice alternative to caramel bars

              I got a 3-pack of these eggs at the same time as I bought a pack of Crème Eggs, as they were also on special offer - only 67p for 3 eggs!

              Each Caramel Egg is covered in yellow and purple foil, the traditional Cadbury's Caramel colours.

              The egg is about the same size as a Crème Egg and has the same pattern. However unlike the Crème Egg, I would not advise biting off the top and sucking or scooping out the middle, as the egg will probably break in half and the caramel will go everywhere. Instead, I recommend eating one half of the egg followed by the other half.

              I like to put Crème Eggs in the freezer, however when I tried to do this with the Caramel Egg the caramel went really hard and cold. Since then I've stuck to putting them in the fridge.

              The chocolate shell is quite thick and there is a generous amount of caramel in the middle. I find eating a caramel bar a bit sickly but one of these eggs is just right to temporarily cure my sugar craving. I have to say though I do prefer the Caramel Bunnies because of their ratio of chocolate to caramel, and this egg probably wouldn't be my first choice of chocolatey treat at full price.

              These eggs are suitable for vegetarians (luckily for me), but contain milk and soya; they may contain nuts. One egg is a whopping 195 calories - good job they're only an occasional treat!

              As Easter's over, you may be able to get some of these eggs on special offer, if you're lucky.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Overall a tasty egg but to sickly for me.

                Cadburys caramel egg is a lovely indulging treat but can be quite messy.
                The egg is around an inch and a half in height and is covered in a brightly coloured yellow and the well known Cadburys purple foil. Is easy to open and looks great.
                I purchased these from asda priced at 3 for a £1 but I believe there around the 50p mark each.
                You really need to keep this egg under control, once you have broken though the lovely delicious Cadburys dairy milk chocolate you are soon met with a rush of caramel. The chocolate has that lovely smooth texture which will melt away in your mouth leaving you with a lovely chocolate taste in your mouth. It is of high quality being Cadburys dairy milk and will never fail you in times of need!

                The caramel is lovely, thick and smooth but can become sickly after eating only half the egg. The combination of the caramel and dairy milk is just divine and tastes so sweet. I much prefer the dairy milk caramel bar unlike the egg you don't get swapped by the caramel.

                Personally I find the smaller mini versions much nicer as they are better in size, not so sickly and you don't have to eat the whole packet in one go like you do with this egg. As if you left half for later caramel would go everywhere and become a very messy sweet treat.

                Disadvantages

                Not a great one, creme egg wins hands down.

                I had a couple of these over easter as they came with an egg and I love caramel but found these a bit too much.

                I think they are probably the same price as a creme egg, and I'm sure I have seen them on offer at 2 for £1.00.

                The chocolate on these is the usual great quality of cadburys and is actually quite thick (It has to be to keep all that goo on the inside).

                I eat mine by biting the top off and then scooping the middle out, which I think was the best way to do it, but one of these little eggs made me feel quite sick. I can usually eat a lot of chocolate, (a creme egg lasts about 30 seconds), but finishing this one off was quite a task.

                The middle of the egg is literally filled with thick gooey caramel (the same that's in a normal caramel but a bit thicker), and it is so very sickly in such a large quantity, I found it really difficult to eat it by itself, and as it's a sticky filling I think it would have been very difficult to eat it with a bit of chocolate with each bite!

                I love caramel bars, and thought I would love this, but I really didn't. It's too sickly and it's just too much caramel, the filling is thicker than the filling of a caramel bar and it just ruins it.

                I would not recommend this over a creme egg, and I have still got a couple left from easter in the fridge, as I can't bring myself to eat them. Maybe the husband (aka the human dustbin) will eat them.

                  Yummy but high in fat

                  I got a Cadburys Dairy Milk Caramel easter egg, funnily enough for easter! They used to come with a large hollow egg and two dairy milk caramel bars, but now it seems that they come with two caramel eggs instead!

                  This egg comes foil wrapped, and the wrapper is yellow and purple, like the wrapping on the caramel bars, and has cadbury dairy milk printed on it, along with a barcode, that usually seems impossible for anyone to scan lol. These eggs are the same size as a cadburys creme egg and I have seen them in the stores for about 60p.

                  The outside of the egg is a thick layer of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate, which make a great crunch as you bite into it, and reveal a nice thick gooey layer of creamy, yummy Cadbury Caramel. This caramel is lovely to eat, nice and smooth, and it is not too sickly either, I could probably eat two of these given half a chance to. This can get a bit messy to eat, but it is so good, you probably won't care about the mess on your face or top (I have done this lol!) until you have finished eating it.

                  Obviously being a load of caramel and chocolate, this egg is high in fat and calories, so while I recommend you eat one of these, I also recommend you only eat one once in a while, so as to keep some healthiness going on lol.
