“ Brand: Cadburys / Type: Egg „
When buying a snack for dinner at Sainsburys the other night I noticed a couple of these Cadbury Mini eggs desserts in the reduced area (due to it being day the use by date expired) and since I am a big fan of mini eggs themselves decided to give it a try. The manufacturers describe this as "a milk chocolate dessert with solid milk chocolate eggs in a crisp sugar shell.
The dessert comes in a circular plastic pot in the attractive, characteristic Cadbury purple and has a yellow film lid on the top. The lid is easy to peel back in order to reveal the dessert. Inside, the pot is segmented into two sections, one containing the brown chocolate dessert and the other contained 5 mini eggs. The join between these two sections is scored so that you can turn the part containing the eggs and pour them into the dessert, or alternatively you can do as I did and just transfer the eggs by hand.
The dessert itself is wonderfully smooth and creamy, with that characteristic Cadbury chocolate taste which I always enjoy and find to be a superior brand to other everyday chocolate brands. It is like melted chocolate, although chilled melted chocolate since this dessert should be refrigerated. The mini eggs themselves are exactly the same as those that you can buy separately in packets. If you haven't tried these before they are also great, small solid Cadbury milk chocolate lumps in a colourful sugar casing. The two components of the dessert compliment each other nicely and the combination is really delicious.
When I first saw the inside of the packaging I was slightly disappointed since there didn't look as if there was a lot of the dessert and I didn't expect it to really be enough to satisfy, however, the dessert is very rich and this, when combined with the solid eggs, was actually sufficient for me.
Nutritionally this product is, as you may expect from a chocolate based product, not great for you containing 250kcal and 12.2g of fat per 100g, (the actual pack size is slightly less than this at 90g), so it is best to only have this as a treat ever so often. I paid 50p since it was reduced, but it was normally 79p which I think is reasonable value. I purchased the product from Sainsburys supermarket, however, since it is a Cadbury product I would expect it to be widely available although possibly not after Easter, so try it soon!
Thank you for reading. Review may also appear on Ciao.
I had one of these Twin Pots for my breakfast this morning, I know it's not the healthiest breakfast ever but we'd run out of milk AND bread and I was starving while I waited for my dad to get back from the shop! lol
If you've never had one of these it's like a fatty and majorly unhealthy version of a Muller corner. You get a pot that's seperated into 2 sections, the big one has got a rich chocolate mousse thing in it and in the smaller pot you get a few Cadburys Mini Eggs.
It's not exactly chocolate mousse because it's too runny to be mousse. It's kind of got the texture of thick custard but it's mega rich and gooey to eat. It's got a strong Cadburys chocolate flavour and sticks to the roof out your mouth and will get all round your mouth as you eat it if you're not careful!!! lol
You can either tip the Mini Eggs in or eat them on their own. I tipped mine in because then the mousse covered them and the 2 different tastes and textures went proper nice together. The Mini Eggs have got a sugar shell that covers a solid milk chocolate egg and the crunch of the sugar shell goes delish with the smooth and rich mousse.
The whole thing is a bit sickly, all of these Twinpots are the same because of them being pure chocolate but this one seems even worse than usual. The chocolate mousse is majorly sweet as well as being rich and creamy, there's NO WAY I could eat more than one of these in a day because they're a bit tooooooo much! lol
You can tell that the mousse is made of Cadburys chocolate because it's got a delish sweet flavour and the over all taste is a bit like Dairy Milk, it's not exactly the same but the taste is deffo there and that makes the Twinpot taste wicked and mega moorish. Like I said I couldn't eat more than one but the flavour makes me think I could!!! lol
They are quite expensive for what they are and cost about 65p each, they are quite often on special offer where you can buy 4 Twinpots for £2.50 and that's not a bad saving but that's still a lot of money for 4 mousses! lol
These Cadbury twin pots seem to have branched out into a variety of different kinds, with the mini eggs version being brought out around the Easter season. They cost around 65p from the supermarket and they usually have a deal on them if you buy 3 or 4.
Within the tub when you peel the lid back, you have a big compartment containing the milk chocolate dessert and a small compartment containing the mini eggs. Any tub which I have ever bought seems to contain 6 mini eggs so this must be the standard amount.
The chocolate dessert tastes lovely. It is very smooth and creamy with the milky sweet taste of chocolate through it. I would say it is more dairy tasting than chocolate like there is a lot of milk or milk product in it. I have just noticed on the ingredients that this product is not going to be suitable for vegetarians as it contains pork gelatine on the ingredients list. Now, I'm not a vegetarian but this puts me off slightly as I don't feel a dessert should have meat products in...so veggies beware!!
The mini eggs are just the standard ones you buy in a bag. Solid milk chocolate in a crispy, sweet sugar shell which has little speckles on so it looks egg-like. I love mini eggs and they do taste really sweet and sickly when coated with the milk chocolate yoghurt.

I am a huge fan of cadburys confectionary products. I think dairy milk is an amazing tasting chocolate and nothing else comes close. They seem to have a magic wand which they wave over everythign they do, and cadburys yoghurts are no exception.
Cadburys mini eggs twin pot is a double potted desert. It comes in a purple plastic pot (traditional cadburys colours) with a yellow and purple lid. I am not sure if either of this packaging is recyclable, or not. The lid is decorated with bright colours and pictures of mini eggs on yoghurt on the spoon, which really tantalises the taste buds. The lid peels off easily to reveal the contents below, without creating too much mess.
The pot is split into two sections. The larger section for yoghurt and the smaller section for even smaller mini eggs. The idea is that you mix the two together and eat them. The yoghurt is a thick chocolately desert. It is smooth and creamy and not aerated like mousse. The mini eggs taste just the same as mini eggs but smaller. They are a sugary shell wrapped around a softer chocolate centre. Cadburys is generous with the servings and gives enough mini eggs to last out the whole pudding.
I love the taste of cadburys deserts. The youghurt is great and the extra filling they add (as there are a few others in this range) compliments the yoghurt flavour well. Off all the flavours, the mini egg one is my least favorite, I just think the others go together better. This is not to say this one isnt good, its just not as amazing. One thing to watch out for is the calories, if you are on a diet there is 225 calories in this tiny yoghurt. The taste is great, just a s you would expect with that many calories!
I love the various chocolate dessert twin pots that Cadbury's produce, my favourite being the plain Dairy Milk variety (the one with simple chunks of chocolate to mix in with the chocolate dessert) and I have a penchant for the Flake one too which is as delicious as it sounds.
I really love Mini Eggs so when I spotted these Twin Pots containing them I decided I just had to try one, unfortunately having given up chocolate for Lent I was a little belated in sampling it but to be honest I wish I hadn't bothered with this gimmicky one and opted for my old Dairy Milk favourite instead.
The problem is that there are four or five normal sized Mini Eggs in the small compartment and the usual amount of thick chocolate dessert in the bigger one, I found it surprisingly difficult to decide how to eat the dessert actually as tipping the Mini Eggs in seemed silly as there were so few of them but I didn't really like the idea of getting a single egg on my spoon and dunking it into the chocolate. I don't know why Cadbury's didn't make the eggs smaller (Mini Mini Eggs?) and add more, the regular sized ones just didn't seem to work in my opinion.
The chocolate dessert is, as always, wonderful. It's thick and very moreish indeed, it looks just like melted chocolate but in reality has a thicker and more indulgent texture that makes me smack my lips in delight. It has a delicious milk chocolate flavour which isn't QUITE Dairy Milk, although in my opinion it's closer than any other chocolate dessert I've tried. Surprisingly it's not a sickly dessert despite the sweetness and richness of the chocolate, I am confident I could eat more than one of any of the twin pot desserts without making myself queasy although I've never actually put this to the test.
Do I need to explain what a Mini Egg is? It's a solid milk chocolate egg with a crisp sugar shell, they taste absolutely divine and I can easily eat a whole packet to myself. Perhaps this is the one good thing about the addition of the Mini Eggs in this dessert and that is the fact that as there are so few of them I can't really make too much of a pig of myself!
Having said that, there are lots of calories in this Cadbury's Twin Pot as you'd expect from such a chocolatey treat. I can't remember off the top of my head how many calories or how much fat is in one, but I remember it was a much bigger figure than I had been expecting. If you're planning to buy one, and I'd be quick now as they were a limited edition for Easter, just have a quick look at the nutritional information, especially if you're watching your weight.
Cadburys Mini Eggs Twin Pot is a new limited edition product in dessert form by Cadburys.
The dessert is provided in a purple pot which can be snapped in two so that you can lift up the section containing the 4 or 5 mini eggs and mix these in to the thick chocolate yoghurt. This is the standard for these Cadburys products and the only difference is the label on the top of the pot which shows two mini eggs and some of the yoghurt on a spoon (yum!).
The taste of the yoghurt is delicious, it's very chocolately and has that distinctive Cadburys kick to it. The mini eggs are cold, crisp and delicious as per normal mini eggs (see my earlier review). When you mix the mini eggs with the yoghurt after a couple of minutes the colour will begin to fade from the mini eggs and will disappear in to the thick chocolate yoghurt.
The yoghurt has a pretty good sell by date of around 3 weeks but they won't last that long with me and my other half on the case anyway!
Each 90g pot contains 225 calories and 11g of fat so these should be enjoyed in moderation.
These are currently on offer in Asda along with other Cadburys Twin Pot desserts and you can get six 90g pots for £3.00 which equates to 50p per pot which is not a bad price at all when compared to the normal 64p when purchased separately.
I am rating this product 4/5. It would have been 5/5 but I was disappointed with the small amount of mini eggs in the pot. The taste is great, the product is deliciously chilled partly in thanks to the pot that it is stored in.
I fancied something sweet the other day so decided to treat myself to this choclate pudding however it was rather too sweet and sickly for me in the end so it is not something I will be buying again. At around the 60p mark for a single pot it is not too bad on price, top end chocolate bar range I guess.
This is a cadbuty milk chocolate mousse dessert which is nice and creamy smooth in texture and added to this are some small mini eggs whuich are kept in a side bit so you can either tip them all in or add as you want. Given that there were only half a dozen in the section I just tipped them all in and mixed the two together a bit after first eating some of the mousse on its own.
Combined together the mni eggs do give the whole thing a nice crunch to compliment the smooth mousse texture however the only real downside is the sickly taste after a few mouthfulls.
Good for those with a sweet tooth however I would prefer to eat the mini eggs seperately and at that price you might as well pay an extra 20p to buy a whole bag.
I bought a pot of these after reading a couple of reviews of these on this site and decided that I didn't just want one I needed one.
I decided that while my son was at nursery was the ideal time to review this yoghurt so not only would I have time to evaluate it but I also would not have to share it.
The twin pots Cadbury mini eggs twin pot is a limited edition for Easter. It is part of a range of Cadburys twin pots which are currently on offer for 4 for £2.50 at Morrison's. I purchased buttons, crunchie and dairy milk. This is for a 90g pot.
It comes in a purple pot with the advertising been on top with a picture of thick looking yoghurt and two Cadbury mini eggs on a spoon.
The Best before date is clearly stated as 2nd April and as I purchased it today it lasts a good couple of weeks.
The lid has a snap plastic opening.
Can contain traces of nuts
I smelt the chocolate and it didn't smell as chocolaty as Dairy milk chocolate. I was very disappointed to see on 4 mini eggs and so at this point was very relieved I wasn't going to share any.
I tried one of the eggs individually and I was again disappointed to find that the shell didn't have the crispiness that Mini eggs usually have. The chocolate inside was usual Cadbury standard.
The chocolate dessert is the same colour as the chocolate and it looks very runny but when you put it on the spoon it is really thick and will hang down from the spoon like an icicle but didn't drip off .It has a really creamy texture as you place it your mouth but it isn't as rich as chocolate.
Combining the egg and chocolate yoghurt somehow doesn't seem to work as well as the other twin pot deserts. I think it may be that the size of the mini eggs makes them a stand alone food rather than something to combine.
As the egg is in the yoghurt the coloured coating wears off so the colouring seems to soak off.
So in summary I was very disappointed in this product and shall not be purchasing it again. If I have a craving for Cadburys mini eggs I shall go and buy a bag of mini eggs.
You get this Cadbury's chocolate dessert with a few different ad-ons such as biscuit, fudge, buttons and so on and this one is the latest addition. I found this in Asda about a month ago and picked up the last one. I had seen it in a magazine advert, so keen to try something new and since I love Mini Eggs then this was a good choice in my view.
The tub is a purple plastic tub and has 2 sections. The large section has what looks like melted chocolate - it's not a chocolate mousse, just quite thick, shiny chocolate. The smaller section contains the Mini Eggs. There were only 6 mini eggs here, but you know how much of a con things like this often are. You can scoop the eggs over to the chocoalte, or it has a fold part where you can just tip the eggs over. Of course you can eat the chocolate and the eggs seperate, but that wouldn't be as much fun surely?
There is just a thin lid covering the product and has a bright picture of chocolate and coloured Mini Eggs. The product is 80g and although I don't have the label to hand I remember it has 240 calories, so not that great if you are watching your diet, but better than eating a bar of chocolate as you get less grams for the same amount of calories.
So would I buy this again? Perhaps. I do like a dessert, but I find the chocolate quite sickly as the chocolate is so sweet and thick, but I pick these up now and again in the shops. They cost about 65p and there is sometimes offers on such as 4 for £2, but since I normally only buy 1 at a time then I don't get to take advantage of the offers.
A good new product to try and others may like it better than me.
I have to first thank 'AmyAmy' for her superb review of this product, as she inspired me to travel to my local Morrisons to purchase this, ok ok I went to get pizza but I wouldn't have picked this up without her review.
First thing I noticed about the pot is that it's a reasonable size, and it looks like an explosion in the Dulux factory. But wait!... upon closer examination by turning this pot over I realised to my horror that the actual pot containing the goodies is microscopic. If I knew a word for small that was smaller than microscopic I would use it. They must be having a laugh, I thought to myself. I like my desserts to be extensive, and my belly to be heaving. Anyway, I decided to purchase this and give Mr Cadbury the benefit of the doubt, he has rarely let me down, so perhaps this dinky little container may have some Tardis like quality.
Upon getting home and opening this I discovered that there are two sections, one containing a pathetic 6 mini-eggs, and the other a thick chocolate sauce. I can eat 6 mini-eggs in one mouthful so this was a little worrying, in fact I can probably inhale 6 mini-eggs without even noticing it had happened.
I shall move on to the taste for a moment and leave my gripe aside. Ok the taste is absolutely mind-blowingly gorgeous. Mini-eggs are of course chocolately perfection, the nice crispy outer shell contrasting with the ever-perfect dairy milk chocolate inside. But the real piece de resistance here is the sauce/yoghurt. It's so intensely creamy, thick, and chocolately! I could spend a long time eulogising about this, possibly even compose poetry about this goo, it's that good.
Then when the two textures of the smooth sauce and the crunchy egg are combined..
Now back to the problem. I finished my ten seconds of heaven, and then thought, err.. is that it? The worst thing in the world is being tantalised, and that is all this does, leaves you wanting more. This would mean that in order to not be annoyed by this dessert I would need to buy two pots everytime. Admittedly this was quite inexpensive at 55p, but in these times of recession I would feel a little extravagant to buy myself two desserts, not to mention that the other half would almost certainly shout at me.
So in summary this is a dessert of mixed emotions for me, on the one hand it may be one of the nicest tasting things to ever hit my lips, but on the other hand
it will always leave me feeling unsatisfied.
