Cadburys Flake Moments
Advantages: nice enough chocolates
Disadvantages: a bit sickly
Now there is a new way to enjoy the delights of Cadbury's Flake, in a box of chocolate. The Moments box of chocolate sells for around £3 for 22 little bite sized chocolatey morsels presented in a nice yellow box, the chocolates come in little plastic trays with two layers of sweets.
There are five different kinds of sweets in the box:
Classic, an inch long piece of original cadbury's Flake. Nice enough but because it was not individually wrapped it felt a little dried out and lacked the crumbly charm of the bigger bar.
Charm, a piece of flake wrapped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with little pieces of milk chocolate. Ths is the most atteractive chocolate of the bunch and there is a really nice contrast between milk and dark chocolate tastes.
Delight, a piece of flake surrounded by milk chocolate and hazelnut praline. I could detect a slight hint of hazelnut taste but there was no softer praline and it was all the one texture. An ok chocolate but not one to knock your socks off.
Dream, a bit of flake covered in white chocolate with dark chocolate decorations. An attractive looking chocolate but the white chocolate is too sweet making it a bit sickly.
Escape, this is the reverse of the dream ie dipped in dark chocolate and then drizzled in white chocolate. Again the dark chcolate tastes nice and rich and blends nicely with the milk chocolate making a nice little bite.
I can't say that Moments is the best box of chocolates that I have ever had, to be honest I would have prefered a multipack of flakes. Some of the chocolates are too sweet but overall they are nice enough, Cadbury's chocolate is not the best but is good for a quick sugar and cocoa fix. The good thing about this box of chocolates is that there will be very few people who dislike them so they make a safe if impersonal gift and there will not be the yucky ones like coffee creams left at the bottom of the box. The range of sweets is a bit unimaginative and for the same price something like Heros would be a better buy.
Summary: Not the best box of chocolates
