Cadbury's Chocolate Mousse: Are you a fan of the froth?

Cadbury Light Mousse
Cadbury's chocolate mousse was a dessert I began eating when I was in my teens, and recently turned back to as a cheaper alternative to Ben and Jerry's and Haagen Dazs ice creams.
The mousse is stored in small purple plastic pot, with an easy to peel back 'lid'. The pot is small enough to keep in your lunchbox/bag, and is a treat to look forward to at lunchtime. Perhaps my only little niggle with the pot is that it is not wide enough, that some mousse is always left sticking to the bottom and sides of the pot.
Upon opening the pot, you will see a smooth top layer to the mousse, it looks similar to a yoghurt, but not as liquidy, so you can tell that it is not yoghurt. When you remove the top layer, you are faced with what looks like a frothy chocolate mousse, and it does taste a bit frothy as well. As I am not a huge fan of the froth, I tend to stir the mousse until the texture becomes smooth and creamy, and when you start eating it this way, it feels like it lasts longer than the frothy texture. The smell is sweet and chocolatey, but not very strong. The taste is quite sweet and rich enough to be a satisfying alternative to the expensive rich ice creams. However as the pot is small, you might find yourself eating 3 or 4 pots at a time, as they are very addictive.
This is a dessert that should be stored in the fridge and is best eaten cold. However if taken as a lunchtime snack and kept in a lunch box/bag, it is most likely to warm up to room temperature by lunchtime. While the mousse does not go off within this time, it does taste a bit different when not cold...and perhaps not as satisfying at room temperature. However I find that it is still something to look forward to at lunch.
The chocolate mousse is available in two forms, as the full fat mousse, and the 'light' mousse. The full fat mousse comes in a dark purple pot, while the light mousse comes in a light purple pot. If you have eaten the full fat mousse for years and then try a light mousse, you may find an ever so slightly different taste between the two. The light mousse is slightly less sweet, but it is so mild a difference, that you would only notice it if you ate either one or the other more often. Once you've had two pots of the light mousse you are unlikely to notice a difference. The light mousse looks exactly the same as the full fat mousse, and the same rules apply; if you want it frothy, eat it as is, if you would like a more creamy texture, stir it.
These are sold in most supermarkets at ninety-nine pence or a pound, and as a four pot pack.
