      Disadvantages

      When I first started purchasing these in 2007, they where around 63p each, or on offer (manufacturers offer) at 4 for £2. Now the supermarkets want up about 82p for these, or an amazing 4 for £3.To make matters worse, Cadburys now don't even fill the flake compartment right up, it used to be almost full, now days it is just over half full.Stop buying products that rip you off. It is the only way these greedy corporations will learn. Else they continues ripping us off at the same time as post in record profits (even in the downturn)

      a nice chocolate dessert but nothing too exciting to me

      As a fan of chocolate I do like the chocolate desserts too.

      Cadbury's flake twin pot dessert is around 82p in most stores, which I do feel is a tad expensive for what you get. Currently in Tesco they are on offer though at 4 for £3.00 (still a bit expensive), considering each pot is 90g. The pot comes in the traditional colour package of it's founder the Flake chocolate bar, but when you peel back the lid the pot is split into two sections. One sections has tiny pieces of flake chocolate bar, which makes me think this is where all the broken bars they can't package go. Along side it is the larger half with the chocolate dessert inside.
      You can eat them in several ways, one side or the other first and separately or you can carefully fold over the chocolate pieces into the dessert and mix them together.

      The chocolate pieces are as you would expect, flake. As they are smaller pieces though they don't break up and make such a mess as the bar itself. Flake tastes very mild milk chocolate which is also quite creamy in that once you have eaten a piece it stays with you for a little while after on your teeth and tongue etc.

      The dessert section - when you open the pot you notice how pale it looks. I know it is milk chocolate but it does look somewhat anaemic! On tasting, it is very mild chocolate in taste in fact quite wishy washy, I was expecting better from Cadbury's I have to say. It's not that it is not nice, but I just feel in needs more depth somehow as I feel like there is something missing. If you mix the two together you do get a slightly better effect as the chocolate pieces help to out weigh the weakness of the dessert section.

      Obviously being a chocolate dessert this is very high in the calories department - a whopping 240kcal for 100g (so slightly less for you pot). It is a treat dessert though and not one you should perhaps have everyday!
      Overall its nice but there is just something missing for me.

        ONCE IN A WHILE MAY MAKE YOU SMILE. ANY MORE TRYS AND YOU'LL HAVE MASSIVE THIGHS!!

        Whilst we were away in Cornwall over the Easter holidays. I visited Asda to get some goodies for us all to induldge in back at our cottage. One of the things that caught my eye, was these cadbury flake twin pot desserts.

        I thought they were very reasonably priced as they were only £2 for four. You could chose from various twin pots that included buttons and dairy milk. However we are quite partial to a flake in our household, so I decided to get four of the flake variety.

        These neat little plastic pots are quite eye catching. They have bright yellow labelling which you immediately associate with the flake brand. The label has all details regarding ingredients and nutritional values. However the writing is very small and maybe a struggle for those with problem eye sight.

        When reading the nutritional values of this product I was quite mortified to read that each 100g of this product offered a whopping 240kcals. Now I know that this is a induldgent treat but nevertheless I think that this is rather excessive in calorific value for a pot of chocolate dessert. To add insult to injury the dessert also contains a hefty 12.6g of fat.

        However I was on holidays and I wasn't going to let a thing such as calorific content stand in my way of a good time!! so the taste test......

        When peeling back the lid of this dessert, You are met with two plastic compartments. One compartment is significantly bigger than the other. The bigger compartment holds a fine portion of deliciously creamy milk chocolate dessert whilst the other portion contains nice sized chunks of Cadbury flake. The flake section is able to be poured into the chocolate fondent. Creating a dreamy, mouth watering treat.

        The taste of the flake against the smooth milk chocolate creamy fondent is just divine. It is not bitter, but it is not too sweet. The portion is just right as any more could potentially be quite sickly.

        I would recommend this product be eaten when chilled as I would imagine the flavours would be somewhat spoilt if the product was served at room temerature. I like the fact that refrigeration causes the flake to become quite hard which creates a greater texture to the dessert.

        In conclusion, this dessert is not something I would eat every day. Although it is rather delicious, I wouldn't say it gives you more pleasure than an actual chocolate bar. I also found myself thinking about the whopping calorie content which did somewhat spoil the eating pleasure.

        As a treat I think these little pots of pleasure are fun and enjoyable. But I must admit I have tasted far nicer desserts. It was delicious, but nothing to go mad about.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Not a weekly shop item.

          Cadbury flake twinpot isn't a regular purchase for us. But as they were on offer 4 for £2.50 in our local Sainsbury's supermarket I decided to be naughty and treat ourselves. So we purchased two of the flake and two of the mini egg Cadbury twinpots. Although £2.50 seemed a good price we only saved 10p. They are normally sold at 65p per pot, that's a total of £2.60 if purchased while the offer was not on promotion. Anyway they were in the trolley and I couldn't wait until after dinner to try them.
          When I finally got to try the yoghurt I opened the lid to find yummy melted chocolate looking yoghurt and in a small pot next to it a cut up flake. I tipped the smaller pot of chocolate flake into the yoghurt and mixed it up. The yoghurt itself didn't taste much like yoghurt, or like a chocolate mousse it was just like melted chocolate and it tasted so nice. I personally found them very sickly. And it's not something I would rush to put in my trolley again.
          It comes in a 90g pot, which is more than enough.
          For the price I wouldn't say they were value for money, but it was a nice treat.
          I would much rather by a large bar of Cadburys chocolate than theses desserts again.
          There are many other Cadbury chocolate twinpots available to purchase from your local supermarket. Others available include Cadburys buttons, Flake, Mini eggs, Crunchie, Dairy milk and Fudge.
          Overall I think they are nice as a treat but not a regular purchase.

          Nice if calorific

          Mmmm gloopy chocolate gloop....
          This dessert is comprised of two pots of chocolatey things. The larger of the two contains some sweet chocolate gloop which gives the slightly worrying impression of being something like cocoa mixed with cornflour and water. In the smaller of the two pots are several pieces of flake which you are supposed to place into the chocolate goo although you could do whatever you like with them(build miniature log cabins, throw them at snow leopards etc).

          The chocolate gloop is in fact quite pleasant it tastes similar to cadbury dairy milk bars although obviously the texture is different. The flake pieces are the ordinary nice cadbury flakes in little pieces.I would recommend you eat the gloop with the flake pieces as it improves the overall texture.

          In summary:
          >the gloop is dubious but nice
          >the flake pieces are pleasant as always
          >they are best eaten together

          Disadvantages

          An interesting alternative for chocolate lovers.

          Cadbury's Twinpot desserts are just another reason for unhealthy people to be that little bit more unhealthy. Modelled like a yoghurt of sorts, this product is an interesting alternative to regular chocolate bars. There are several different varities.

          This one, the Flake, is much like the others in that half of the "pot" contains runny chocolate/chocolate yoghurt, while the smaller side has chunks of flake. The idea is that you peel off the top, and tip the smaller side into the bigger half, thus creating a glorious mixture of the chocolate yoghurt and chocolate pieces. It's one big chocolate fest, and rather tasty at that.

          The good thing about these little devils is, they give you the illusion that they are not as unhealthy as regular chocolate bars, but in truth I doubt there is much difference. They must be refrigerated, and unlike chocolate bars have a closer use by date. Often you'll find them on offer - 2 for 1 or 3 for 2, and you can mix the different sorts in together, as long as they are Cadburys.

          Altogether, definitely a nice treat for anyone who likes chocolate, which I suspect is most of us. Am I right?

          Yummy flake Chocolate Desert

          mmmmmm, yum yum. Now Im not usually a big fan of yoghurts or chocolate deserts however when I was at Tesco's ad so them advertised for 4 for £2 I decided that I had to indulge in this and give it a go.

          This Cadburys's flake twinpot desert has two comprtments to it. The first compartment is full of lovely chocolate and the other full of mini flake bits. The idea is for you to empty the contents of the chocolate flake compartmet into the melted down chocolate, the grab a tea spoon and get stuck right in.

          In a massive fan of chocolate and have decided that this is better than any normal off the shelf chocolate bar and will definately be going back to Tesco to restock my fridge with these.

          Now these are entitled "chocolate desert" however ive been taking one of them into work each day as part of my lunch. Ive even been indulging in these whilst I sit on my laptop writinh dooyoo reviews :)

          If you havent yet tried these then I highly recomemd that you give one a go and I bet you too will be going back for more

          I would buy them if they are on offer as a treat only.

          This is a review of the Cadbury Flake Twinpot Dessert.

          The dessert pots by Cadbury are eye catching in yellow and purple packaging. The plastic pot has a peel off lid and it's a bit 'fruit corner style' except you get bits of flake in the corner - yeah!! The other 'yoghurt' side has a gloopy chocolate sauce in it.

          First of all, don't be fooled into thinking that these are yoghurts or healthy food! They are not. Each 90g pot contains 216 calories and 11.46g.

          The gloopy chocolate bit reminds me of the bottom layer bit you get in the chocolate trifles by the same maker.

          The taste of flake is up to Cadbury's normal standards, yummy chocolate. The gloopy sauce bit is like really thick custard and is quite strong tasting. I quite like it but can see why others find it a bit much. It's a true test of how hardcore you are!

          I bought mine at 4 for £2.50 at Tesco, which is about average for something with a 'premium' brand like Cadbury.

          They are worth a try if you are into a bit of something sweet as a snack or after your tea.

            I wouldn't buy one of these again.

            I love chocolate and I have decided lately I should cut down on the amount I eat, so I decided if I couldn't eat chocolate, I should try a chocolate yogurt.

            I bought the Cadbury Flake twin pot yogurt, the pot is plastic with a thin plastic lid that can be pulled off. The smaller of the two pots contains pieces of flake (rather small pieces but pieces none the less). The larger of the two pots contains a thick chocolaty yogurt.

            The yogurt is very thick and actually isn't really the consistency of yogurt at all, it is in my opinion, too thick and gunky. The flavour isn't really chocolaty at all, although the substance definitely looks very chocolaty it just doesn't have a chocolaty taste at all. I don't know if I can even describe the taste other than very fake. It doesn't taste natural at all, not even a bit like coco or any form of chocolate related substance.

            The yogurt almost tastes rubbery - is that possible?!

            Cadbury do offer these yogurts in different varieties:
            Buttons
            Flake
            Mini Eggs
            Crunchie
            Limited edition Wispa.

            But the yogurt is the same in all, horrid.

            The cost is £0.68 per yogurt or 4 for £2.50 at Asda, I think this is expensive for what this is and for the amount of yogurt and chocolate available.

            Your best bet is to buy some other yogurt and a chocolate bar. It would probably taste nicer and be cheaper.

            It is a shame that Cadbury haven't got the yogurt spot on because this had the potential to be my favourite yogurt ever on paper but not in reality.

              If you like chocolate, you would like this so go on treat yourself! They are worth it!

              Yes I am a big fan of Cadbury's and especially the Flake bars.

              As I have described in my review on the Flake Chocolate bar. Flake has been around for a very long time, since 1920 it was discovered by a Cadbury employee by mistake after spilling chocolate over a mould, the chocolate fell off into a stream and created folded flaky chocolate.

              My daughter has just eaten one of these as her pudding, it is her favourite dessert.

              These have much more calories than a standard Flake chocolate bar; therefore, they are nice enjoyed in moderation. A 90g pot contains 216 calories, where a standard flake has 180 calories.

              The pot is bright purple with a bright yellow easy to peel off lid; it is easily distinguished from the other chocolate pots.

              It has two compartments, one full of smooth liquid chocolate; I can only describe the taste as cold melted chocolate.

              The other compartment is full of small chopped up flake pieces, and when you tip the flake pieces into the liquid chocolate and taste the two together it is pure heaven! Yes you need a spoon!

              Cost:
              They are on offer in Asda - 64p each or 4 pots for £2.50

                great tasting pudding

                Now I wouldn't as much call this a yogurt as much as a kind of chocolate pudding as its not really that healthy as a breakfast or a snack however it does taste really good so I guess ill forgive it there.

                Its made by Cadbury who I think everyone knows makes so many great tasting chocolate bars, one of which being the flake. There are two separate pots, similar to other products on the market however this one is so much better.

                The small pot contains broken up pieces of a Cadbury flake and the bigger, but still not big enough pot contains the yogurt. The yogurt section is actually more of a thick creamy mousse, its really thick and so chocolaty, it just tastes great and then even better when the chocolate flake pieces are added.

                These are a fantastic product, the thick chocolate mousse yogurt part tastes fantastic, and although these could be a bit bigger I still enjoy them every time I have them. I usually have these as a pudding after a meal or a snack in the day or night rather than a breakfast yogurt as I think they are more of a pudding rather than an actual yogurt but still, they taste fantastic.

                A delicious treat

                Never go shopping when you're hungry, isn't that what they say? Well the other night I was starving 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 spied the Cadbury's Twin Pot range - on offer. Into 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!

                Today is the turn of the Flake variety. The Flake Twin Pot comes, like all varieties, 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 small Flake pieces. The lid is mostly Flake Yellow, with a small swirl of Cadbury Purple - both instantly recognisable, and there's an image in the middle of some of the dessert and a few pieces of Flake on a spoon.

                Again, as with the Buttons variety, I didn't find this dessert smells particularly strongly, but I was again impressed by the strong chocolate taste of the yoghurt. It 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 Flake actually seemed quite bland in comparison, though the different texture was welcome.

                The Flake pieces are about 1cm square, rather than little flakes of chocolate as you might imagine, and they look a bit like they may be the misfits from the Flake production line to be honest. Upon trying a few Flake pieces on their own without the yoghurt accompaniment, I found that their small size seemed to make them less flakey than normal, and more like little chunks of chocolate. There was a good ratio of Flakey bits to yoghurt so I found there was at least one on each spoonful. I found the yoghurt overall 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 216 calories - pretty hefty for a mid-morning snack and more than a tenth of the recommended daily intake for a woman - and, interestingly, more than a Flake bar itself; 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 very high quality dessert, due to the calorie and fat content and the relatively high price, definitely one to save for treats.

                  Rather buy a bar of chocolate

                  On the weekends I always buy a bar of chocolate as a treat, I came across these yummy looking chocolate desserts and thought I would pick one up to try. I thought that I would love this chocolate dessert because I am a big fan of Cadbury's chocolate.

                  It comes in a two part, round and purple pot and it looks a little like the muller fruit corners just a litte smaller. In the bigger part of the pot is the chocolate dessert. It is smooth and very sweet, I think it is supposed to resemble 'melted chocolate' although it doesn't taste as nice. On the smaller part of the pot is some tiny chunks of Cadubury's flakes, which I personaly think is the best part of the desert.

                  Being a chocoholic I thought that I would love this dessert, but when i tried it I didn't like it as much as I thought I would have, so I was disappointed ! The chocolate is too sweet and very sickly. If you like really really sweet things then you will probably enjoy it, but if you don't like sweet food then it is not for you.

                  It is quite high in calories and fat for the size of the pot so if your looking fo something naughty to munch on you may aswell buy a chocolate bar !

                  .

                  I've tasted a lot of chocolate flavoured products over time. Cake, custard, mousse, ice cream and lollies but this was my first chocolate yoghurt. Unsure as to why they've branded it as a dessert. Anyway I don't usually spend over 50p for a single pot of yoghurt but in this instance I didn't really feel like any of the other options so I pushed to an extra 15p. I still think 65p is a bit steep, especially considering it was also on offer but never mind. It's only a one off.

                  It's basically a chocolate flavoured yoghurt with chunks of flake to go with it. Whilst the yoghurt is obviously very chocolatey, it's also very smooth Another bonus is that when you actually get the lid off you don't need to stir it altogether like some pots out there. Meaning that it doesn't have the problem of some of it sticking to the sides in flimsy clumps.

                  The flake chunks are what you'd expect although personally I'd prefer them to of been a bit smaller as they didn't last all that long. Also oddly enough I didn't think they tasted as much of chocolate as they do full length. This could be down to the fact that they're being mixed with the yoghurt which has a stronger flavour though.

                  The packaging is pretty basic, you have a larger section holding your yoghurt, with a smaller one containing your flake. Now people are going to eat these types of puddings differently, I know that. I don't mix mine altogether. I like a spoonful of yoghurt and then be able to dip some of the smaller compartment on top. Because the bit which holds the flake is quite small and the chunks are not that minature I had to pick the chunks up with my fingers and put them on top. Now I realise I'm sounding a bit fussy here but I would of liked the smaller section to be bigger!

                  These are 90g pots and contain 216 calories and 11.46g. Not exactly the healthiest of yoghurts but everything in moderation.

                  Despite my love of chocolate, this was too much for me! In that it was very sweet and the flake didn't do anything to it anyway. Maybe it was just there for extra crunch or something. If you really enjoy chocolate then obviously these are ideal for you. I don't think they are worth the price, especially if on offer it cost me 65p.

                  Maybe something to have every now and again.

                    A Fantastic Yoghurt/Dessert From Cadbury's.

                    Cadbury Flake Dessert Twinpot was my yoghurt of the day yesterday and after a small but delicious wrap 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 Flake 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 Flake on 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 Flake pieces are cold, crisp and delicious as per the normal Flake. When you mix the Flake pieces with the yoghurt you get an even more delicious chocolate hit. The yoghurt is thick and luxurious and the Flake is lovely and thick and chocolatey.

                    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 216 calories and 11.46g 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 Flake pieces. 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 Flake pieces to mix in with the yoghurt. This is a delicious yoghurt and I would definitely recommend it.
