Cadburys Mini Eggs Twin Pot
Advantages: Delicious chocolate dessert and lovely Mini Eggs
Disadvantages: But the two don't go terribly well together
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.
Summary: I could eat these Twin Pots all day, but I'd much rather have the Dairy Milk one!
