“ Type: Yoghurts „
I'm normally a yoghurt man, but recently I saw a selection of Cadbury's twinpots reduced to 40p each and couldn't resist a bit of Cadbury's sweetness. I got a couple of different ones, but this review is about the Dairy Milk Buttons dessert twin pot.
The dessert isn't the biggest in the world at 90g, and comes in a pot that has two compartments - one for the pudding element and the other is for the sprinkles which are added to the dessert. In this case it was Buttons - of which I counted 15 in my pot. When I added these to the chocolate dessert / pudding thing, I made the mistake of pushing the buttons into the dessert with my spoon. Don't do this quickly - it made the dessert spill out over the side when I did it!
They descride it as a milk chocolate dessert - it's like a really thick, sludgy diabetic's nightmare - very sweet and enjoyable but probably as good for you as smoking a cigar whilst eating lard is. Just to put that into context - the fat content of a 100g serving is 13g - the NHS recommends that women eat no more than 20g a day. So, two of these bad boys and a lady has exceeded her daily fat limit and a man could eat a spoonful from a third pot then it's all "a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips".
I'd recommend that you hide these in the fridge - were my children to see the Buttons on the pot they would not even ask and presume that the twin pots are for them. Not a chance - it's a very rich, adult dessert and far too good to "waste" on the kids; let it be a treat for mum and dad instead! For its fat content, I can't give it the full five stars, but if you're not too bothered about the fat content then they are one of life's pleasures and taste great. Four stars, thanks for reading.
After recently trying a few of the Cadburys dairy milk yoghurts I still can't decide which one is my favourite. They are all so tasty.
These yummy snacks come in the traditional Cadburys purple pot which is very much like the Muller corner pot. It's divided into two sections. One larger one which houses the chocolate yoghurt and the other housing the dairy milk buttons.
The twin pot is easy to open and you can smell the sweet taste of chocolate fill the air, you cant help but rush to delve your spoon in the thick smooth chocolate yoghurt. I say yoghurt but it is much more like cold melted chocolate, the taste is just divine.
I love to mix in all the buttons into the chocolate. When eating the chocolate mix you can taste the great delightful chocolate made by Cadburys which just melts away in your mouth leaving you with cold buttons which slowly start to melt. They are so naughty but really make you feel great.
I absolutely love these yoghurts but the price is a big no no when it comes to trying to cut the cost of my weekly shop. They are priced at around 65p each but are usually on offer at 4 or £2.50 which only leaves you shaving a few pennies.
Overall these are a great sweet snack with will satisfy your chocolate needs.
Never go shopping when you're hungry, isn't that what they say? Well last night I was ravenous after a day at work, but I needed a few things from the supermarket. I made a list, thinking this might keep me on track, but alas, when I came to 'yoghurts', instead of getting Muller Lights or even a nice low-calorie (still dieting) chocolate mousse - I espied the Cadbury's Twin Pot range - on offer. Uh-oh - in the basket they went, one of each variety - Buttons, Dairy Milk, Flake and Wispa. It was only when I got them home and looked a little more closely that I realised just how much more calorific they are than other yoghurts. Oh well, I'd bought them so I can't waste them!
First to bite the dust this morning is the Buttons variety. Each Cadbury's Twin Pot comes in a round Cadbury Purple pot with two sections - a large section containing the chocolate yoghurt dessert and a small one containing a helping of Cadbury's Buttons. The lid is purple, with a chocolate brown swirl around the edge and an image of some of the dessert and a couple of Buttons on a spoon. There is also an image on the side of the pot of a chocolate Button with a cat's ears, whiskers and tail sketched onto it, which pleased me very much!
The yoghurt spat at me when I opened it, giving me a little taster of what was to come and although I didn't find this dessert smells particularly strongly, I was really, really impressed by the strong chocolate taste! The yoghurt part is really thick, smooth and creamy - much better quality than other chocolate yoghurts and mousses on the market. It tastes really chocolatey but without the bitterness of cocoa, an absolute pleasure. In fact so rich was the yoghurt, that the Buttons actually seemed quite bland in comparison, though the different texture was welcome.
There was a good ratio of Buttons to yoghurt so I found there was at least one on each spoonful. I found the yoghurt rather small and not particularly satisfying or filling as a snack - there are a fair few 'empty calories' in this! - so this is definitely one to have as a dessert rather than a snack. That said though, I think if this were any bigger it would start to get too sickly and overpowering.
Each 90g pot contains around 220 calories - pretty hefty for a mid-morning snack and more than a tenth of the recommended daily intake for a woman; and 11g of fat which is again pretty high for a yoghurt-type snack. Contains gelatine so not suitable for vegetarians, and may contain traces of nuts.
Cadbury's Twin Pots normally retail for around 65p each, which I think is pretty high for this type of snack, but I got 4 for £2.50. Doing my maths in the cold light of day though, I've only saved 10p overall ... see, never go shopping on an empty stomach!!
Overall then, although this really is a delicious and high quality dessert, due to the calorie and fat content and the relatively high price, definitely one to save for treats.
Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons Dessert Twinpot was my yoghurt of the day today and after a small but delicious pasta lunch I decided to indulge in one of these and treat myself!
The dessert is provided in a purple pot which can be snapped in two so that you can lift up the section containing the Cadbury's buttons 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 some Cadbury's buttons 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 Cadbury's buttons are cold, crisp and delicious as per normal buttons (see my earlier review). When you mix the buttons with the yoghurt you get an even more delicious chocolate hit. The yoghurt is thick and luxurious and the buttons remind me of my childhood.
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 221 calories and 11g of fat so these should be enjoyed in moderation.
The usual selling price of each twinpot is 65p in most supermarkets. There is frequent long term price offers of 4 pots for £2.50 but I just prefer to buy them as and when because the offer only saves 10p and that is just 2.5p per pot which really isn't worth bothering with to me.
I am rating this product 5/5 as the yoghurt is delicious and there was a reasonable amount of Cadbury's buttons. In the past I have been disappointed with the small servings (as I was with the mini eggs one) but this was just delicious and the perfect amount of Buttons to mix in with the yoghurt. This is a delicious yoghurt and I would definitely recommend it.
I've tried several of the Cadbury's Twinpots recently and each one I say is my favourite as they are all absolutely divine. My current 'favourite' is the Buttons version which is absolute chocolate heaven - unfortunately with a calorie content to match!
A Twinpot is like Müller Fruit Corner's very naughty big brother. The dessert comes in a pot which is sectioned into two, the thick chocolate dessert fills the larger compartment while there is a fairly generous pile of Cadbury's Buttons in the smaller section. It's completely up to you whether you tip the buttons all into the dessert and give it a good old mix, or alternatively you can eat them separately and enjoy the grown up dessert followed by the very child-like Buttons.
Today I wasn't in the mood for messing around so just tipped the whole lot in and enjoyed a real mish mash of chocolate flavours and textures.
The dessert itself is richly chocolate flavoured with a wonderful smooth, almost glossy, texture. It's thick and creamy, coating spoon and lips as you eat. I don't find the dessert sticky though, quite the opposite, I think it has a velvet like consistency which feels very luxurious indeed as you're eating. It's very sweet and has a richer flavour than Cadbury's Chocolate Mousse, although this is to be expected from such a smooth dessert.
The Buttons, for those of you who don't know, are small flattened rounds of milk chocolate. Delightfully sweet with a very intense chocolate flavour, Cadbury Buttons have been kiddies' favourites since the year dot - or as near as! I think by including the Buttons in this otherwise very adult dessert this will make it appeal to children, unfortunately the mixture of such a rich dessert AND quite a lot of Buttons makes it far too rich for the very young children I believe this is directed at.
I personally found it one of the sweetest of the Twinpots I've tried, with the possible exception of the Chocolate Chunk variety, and although I didn't think it was terribly sickly I did struggle with the last couple of spoonfuls. I gave my two year old granddaughter some and she wasn't impressed at all, initially she enjoyed the chocolate flavour and the fact that her favourite chocolates were mixed in but she quickly began pushing the spoon away which usually indicates she has had enough rather than her not liking it.
These Twinpots are expensive I think, although not cripplingly so. Each one costs 65p, although they always seem to be on a special offer at four pots for £2.50 and you can mix and match the varieties. They're very high in calories and fat as you'd expect, a single pot contains around 250 calories and well over 13g of fat. Apologies for the vague nutritional information there but I threw my pot away and have put the rubbish out now so can't remember the exact figures!
It's well worth it though, what's 13g of fat when it comes to such a delicious dessert!
I'm a huge chocolate fan as you may have gathered from my numerous reviews of the sweet stuff it it's many guises. I love to try anything new from Mr. Cadbury and this new creamy, yoghurty style dessert is no exception.
My eye was caught by these one day in Tesco whilst I was searching for my usual brand of yoghurt. The Milk Buttons Twinpot which I'm reviewing here is in a circular bright bluey purple tub which stands out on the supermarket shelf, it has a picture of a spoonful of chocolate buttons on the lid and the words Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons.
The pot is split into two sections with the buttons on one side and the chocolate yoghurt on the other, you can flip the buttons into the yoghurt and stir them up into a gorgeous little chocolately treat.
Now these are quite expensive for a dessert/posh yoghurt at almost 70p each in some stores though you can occassionaly pick them up on offer a little cheaper. I dont buy them too often for that reason but really enjoy them when I do, I feel quite naughty tucking into one of these at the weekend when I really should be out for a run instead!
The chocolate buttons in this are the same as the ones found in bags of buttons in sweet shops everywhere, small and perfectly formed. The yoghurt section is creamy and not too sweet and mixes perfectly with the buttons, I just wish there was more of it!
I would happily eat more than one of these at a time if they were so fattening, each tub has almost 300 calories so its best to enjoy these in moderation.
Last week I wrote about the Cadbury Flake twin pot, which I had bought along with the Cadbury buttons twin pot when they were on special offer.
This product is basically a sort of yogurt dessert, which has one section of chocolate yogurt and one section of Cadbury buttons, which can be mixed together.
The dessert comes in a purple plastic pot, which is split into two sections, with a join that can be folded over so that you can tip the buttons into the yogurt.
I had liked the taste of the flake version of this product, but found that the dry, crumbly texture of the flake pieces made it taste heavy and quite sickly. I had hopes that this one would be better as Cadbury buttons are smaller and thinner, so thought it might not be as heavy,
The dessert itself is a pale brown colour and a fairly thick consistency. It has a sweet, chocolaty smell, and taste wise it I found it to be the same (or at least very similar) to the flake version. It's very creamy and sweet, without being sickly or too rich, which I think is quite important as when you add the chocolate buttons - as I discovered with the flake version- there is a potential for this to become too sweet.
When I added the chocolate buttons to the yogurt part of the dessert, as I had predicted, as they were smaller, and the chocolate was creamier than the flake version, I found this much more manageable to eat and not at all sickly. In fact the texture of the buttons complimented the creaminess of the chocolate dessert really well, and I think this tasted much better than I had expected.
Each 100g pot contains:
I bought this from Somerfield where it cost 70p, but was on a special offer of two for £1.20. Even so, I think this is quite expensive, so would only buy it as an occasional treat.
Overall, I really liked this, and think it is much preferable to the flake version. The yogurt part of the dessert is smooth and creamy without being sickly and the buttons make a nice accompaniment without making the dessert to heavy or sweet. I will definitely purchase this one again.
