Hey Cadburys, It was the eggs that were supposed to be mini, not the whole product!

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.
Summary: Tiny, but perfect, kind of.
