“ Brand: Cadbury's / Type: Yoghurts „
On a recent trip to my local Asda store I spotted the range of Cadburys individual pot desserts on special offer and as I am quite partial to desserts I decided to try one. Although there are various different dessert in this range that are based on the different Cadburys chocolate bars I opted to purchase the fudge one.
This dessert comprises of a milk chocolate dessert with milk chocolate coated fudge pieces. As stated I purchased my fudge dessert from Asda where they were on special offer at £0.50 each. I have spotted these desserts before and have been eager to try them but have been reluctant to purchase them at full price as they are rather expensive for an individual dessert and usual retail for around £0.70 each.
The fudge dessert came in a plastic pot which is the signature Cadburys purple colour with a plastic peel able orange and purple lid with Cadburys logo on and picture of a spoonful of the dessert. The plastic pot is split into two sections the larger one which contains the milk chocolate dessert and the smaller one which contains the chocolate covered fudge pieces. On the lid and the side of the pot you can find all the information that you need to know about the dessert including nutritional information, ingredients listings and storage instructions.
Obviously with this being a chocolate dessert and containing chocolate fudge pieces it is not the healthiest dessert option but is nice for a treat as part of a balanced diet. Although the pots contain 90g the nutritional information per 100g which contains the following:
The lid is really easy to remove from the pot with it having a little tab at the corner which you fold back and pull. This reveals the creamy looking chocolate dessert and the fudge pieces. I was a little disappointed that there did not seem to be many fudge pieces with them only making up 16% of the dessert but I suppose they are just to act as a topping to the dessert. The milk chocolate dessert was thinner in consistency than I expected it to be and had more of a yogurt like consistency. But overall I was pleasantly surprise the dessert section was very smooth and silky in texture and had a lovely creamy chocolate taste. I actually tipped the fudge pieces into the dessert and they worked perfectly with it giving a nice additional chocolaty, chewy contrast in texture to the dessert.
Overall I think these are great little desserts to have as a treat every so often, I do think they are little overpriced when not on offer so I would certainly recommend looking out for offers on this fudge dessert and others in the range.
Whilst doing a weekly shop today in Morrisons I decided to look at the desserts and came across these as part of an offer which was 3 for £1 which I thought was a decent offer. As well as the Fudge variety I also bought one of the Wispa ones. There are quite a few different Cadbury's desserts already available, including Flake and Crunchie and I had eaten these before and decided to try them again so why not try the others again too?. I'm sure you are all aware of the little Fudge chocolate bars which are one of the smaller chocolate bars on the market and a kids favourite for many years. These normally retail for around 45p and contain 90grams.
As you peel off the lid you get the lovely smell of the creamy Cadbury's chocolate which looks like a very smooth mousse. What you get mixed in with the chocolate is of course the fudge pieces just like the combination which is contained in the bar. The taste of the fudge pieces and chocolate brings you back to the small chocolate treats of your childhood. I'm sure there will be times when you prefer to have the chocolate bar but this is also a tasty fudge treat which will appeal to people of all ages due to it's appealing taste. Although this dessert is quite rich it's certainly not that rich and it's fine for a regular dessert as part of a balanced diet.
Whilst the taste is not as mouth wateringly good as some more expensive and luxurious desserts it does a decent job at a cheap and easy pudding and an after school snack. I feel it also benefits from being a cheaper option than many other desserts which will counteract the unhealthy aspect compared to a Muller light or Shape Yoghurt for instance. I have tasted better puddings than this that's for sure but for the price and size they are available at it's certainly not such a bad choice for people who like chocolate and fudge and like reminiscent chocolate treats from their childhood. As these are available individually why not pick up one next time you do your main shop.
Probably the most delicious fudge yogurt I have ever had in my life given the circumstances and difficulty I had in obtaining one,the texture of the fudge just ooozed down my throat while the sumptuous flavour of the yogurt just left me with a lovely tingly feeling all the way through my body.Would I recommend the yogurts? ...most def without fail.Lewis Reid
I am very keen on desserts, whether I am buying them or making them myself, and love trying out new varieties. I was rather impressed the day I decided to try out the new Cadbury Fudge dessert.
It is packaged in a delightful purple tub with 2 sections. On the one side is the delicious chocolate dessert and on the other you find chocolate-coated fudge pieces. This handy little tub also has a 'hinged' section that allows you to bend it in half to easily tip the fudge pieces into the chocolate dessert.
The consistency of the dessert is reasonably thick. If you like Cadbury's chocolate you will love the dessert, as it is deliciously creamy. Cadbury fudge is very sweet and the size of the tub is perfect. I often use the dessert as a topping for vanilla ice-cream, or it can be eaten on its own.
As with all desserts it is not good for the waistline: 240 calories per 100g with 12.4g fat content (the packaging doesn't specify saturated fat content).
A 90g tub of Cadbury Fudge will cost £0.64.
Cadburys Fudge Twin Pot is a new version in the ever increasing list of products also available in dessert form by Cadburys.
The dessert is provided in a purple pot which can be snapped in two so that you can lift up the section containing the 15-20 small pieces of fudge and these are easy enough to mix these in to the thick chocolate yoghurt by just bending the smaller, Fudge containing, section of the pot. This is the standard for these Cadburys products and the only difference between them all is the label on the top of the pot which shows some of the chocolate yoghurt on a spoon with a few small pieces of chocolate covered fudge on the top.
The taste of the yoghurt is delicious, it's very chocolately and has that distinctive Cadburys flavour to it. The fudge pieces are several different sizes from a couple of millimetres up to a centimetre or so and these are lovely, just like the original Fudge chocolate bar. The fudge is nice and chewy and perfect for sinking my teeth in to and these are even more delicious as the Fudge pieces have been chilled when stored in the fridge. When you mix the Fudge pieces with the yoghurt it's not unlikely to find that most of the fudge has ended up clumped together in the bottom of the pot but I don't mind as I LOVE fudge, oh yes, and the Cadbury's yoghurt.
This yoghurt had a sell by date of around 2-3 weeks but that didn't matter as it's gone now and I'm going to try a different one next time! Yum.
Each 90g pot contains 225 calories and 11g of fat so these should be enjoyed in moderation.
These are around 64-67p in the big four supermarkets and there is usually some variation of a special offer as 5 for £3.00 or 4 for £2.50 so it's worth keeping your eyes peeled but remember a saving of just 18p over four pots (based on Sainsburys 67p each and 4 for £2.50) isn't actually much of a saving if these are just being brought because of the offer and not because you don't mind eating an unhealthy yoghurt each lunchtime!
I am going to rate this one 5/5, I have been a little disappointed in the past when there has not been made of the chocolate based 'side portion' but this was not the case with this yoghurt as there was an ample amount of Fudge and I was surprised that there was actually 18 pieces with only 2 being minute and the rest being reasonably bite sized pieces. I am going to purchase this again but not before I have sampled some of the other ones in the range!
I am a huge fan of cadburys confectionary products, in my opinion nothign else really comes close. They are the market leader in most brands that they try. Cadburys dairy milk has a fantastic taste and Cadburys seem to be able to wave that magic wand over everything they do. I was really glad to find out that this flake yoghurt was no exception!
The yoghurt comes packaged in a purple plastic tub (traditional Cadburys colours) with a foil peel off lid which keeps the yoghurt fresh. I am not sure how much of the packaging is recyclable though. The lid has pictures of swirly gold colouring, the fudge logo and the cadburys logo. It has a picture of the yoghurt and the topping you expect to get with it, which I have to say does look very tantilising.
You can peel the lid off easily to reveal two pots which make up the contents of the yoghurt. One is slightly smaller than the other and that contains what I call the topping. In this case this is small fudge pieces, the same tasty pieces you get in a Cadbury's fudge chocolate bar. The larger pot is a creamy golden yoghurt. Normally with these Cadburys twin pot yoghurts this bit is a chocolate desert. This is roughly the same, just with a creamy fudge taste instead with a golden colour. It looks very sickly, and to be honest it is, but it is gorgeous. It is creamy and thick. The two toppings go together fantastically, and taste great. The texture also compliments each other magnificently.
The only downside to this yoghurt is that you do not get enough!!
This cadbury's youghurt is perfect after a hard's day work and you have just come home and you are trying to decide between a lovely chocolate bar or a healthy piece of fruit. But here in the fridge you see a new product. Hmm. What is it? Is it purple with orange pieces on it? It is new and it is a cadbury's fudge youghurt. It tastes like heaven in a pot! One great advantage? It is healthier than having an actual standard fudge chocolat bar!! Everyones happy. Although most people would choose fruity youghurts i have to say the fudge one is well worth a try. It can come in a single pack for people who jsut want to taste it or in packs of 4 along with other cadbury's youghurt such as the buttons one which is also good but not as great as the fudge one which i would give ten out of ten. It is really good!
