“ Brand: Cadbury / Type: Other Desserts „
I bought a couple of these Cadbury's desserts as a little treat for myself as they were on a 2 for £1 offer. they usually cost 78p each and I'm not sure I would pay that much for them.
This Wispa dessert comes in a plastic pot with a peel off lid like most yoghurts. It is a split pot with a large section with the dessert in and a smaller section with the Wispa pieces in. Unlike some, the pot bends easily at the split making it easy to tip the pieces into the dessert.
The dessert itself is fairly thin, about the consistency of the average creamy yoghurt. It has a smooth texture and a lovely rich, creamy chocolate flavour. It's not overly sweet or sickly and it's quite light so it's an easy to eat sweet snack as opposed to something that will sit heavy in your stomach. The wispa pieces are quite small and although you can tell they're not just solid chocolate they're not really discernible as being bits of Wispa, they're just not big enough. They taste nice enough but they don't give the same taste as a Wispa bar, it's more of a general Cadbury chocolate taste.
Although both the dessert and the Wispa pieces taste nice I don't find they really go together. I much prefer to eat the two separately as the combination just doesn't do anything for me. The pot doesn't give a very generous portion but it's probably just as well because I find that although it doesn't taste too sweet it starts to hurt my teeth after a few spoonfuls!
Each pot contains 207 calories and 11g fat. The sugar content is not listed, but the carbohydrate content is 23.3g and I would guess most of that comes from sugar. It is a particularly unhealthy little dessert and I don't personally find it worth the calories so I won't be buying it again.
My husband seems to have heaps of Christmas meals on at the moment. He disappears off for the evening and gets wined and dined and comes back all festive and podged while I feed, bath and get the girls ready for bed. On evenings like this I cook myself really lazy meals which require zero effort in the kitchen. While I'm scanning the shelves for easy yet tasty food I also often get the urge to treat myself to something sweet and naughty.
Yesterday I was looking for something to brighten up my evening alone wrapping Christmas present when I spotted this Cadbury Wispa Pot Dessert. I have tried some of the other Cadbury offerings in the twin pot range such as the Buttons and Flake varieties and really enjoyed them as an indulgent treat. I love Wispa bars and am thrilled they are back on the shelves so I was eager to give this one a go. I believe a single twin pot cost 64p from my local Tesco's but they are sometimes on a multi buy offer.
Later that even when the wrapping was becoming particularly dull, I trudged to the fridge hoping that this dessert would brighten up my evening. I peeled off the lid and then saw the split portions of the dessert. One side there was a rich creamy chocolatey smooth dessert and the other side of the pot was filled with small pieces of wispa chocolate.
It looked delicious and incredibly naughty and there was a fantastic sweet aroma. I tipped the cholate Wispa pieces into the smooth dessert and used my spoon to mix up the two. First spoonful was fantastic, the smooth dessert tasted heavenly, the creamy Cadbury chocolate
taste was divine and then every now and then I'd find a small chunk of the Wispa chocolate. I loved the contrast in textures and the whole taste was fabulous.
I polished it off in a few minutes and afterwards felt satisfied that I'd had a proper chocolate hit. I really enjoyed this dessert although I have to admit that it was incredibly rich and a little sickly. I would definately buy this again but for the sake of my waistline, only as an occasional treat.
really really yummy. 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 wispa 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 writing dooyoo reviews :) These are definately addictive!!
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 (and more and more)
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 - and on offer too. 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!
I saved the best for last - the Wispa variety. Wispa has always been one of my favourite chocolate bars since I was tiny and I pride myself on having been part of the internet campaign to bring them back after Cadbury replaced them with the far inferior Dairy Milk Bubbly a few years ago. Now that Wispa has returned and been so well received by the public, Cadbury seem to bringing out a few Wispa-derived products, including the Wispa Gold bar and this Wispa dessert.
The Wispa 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 smaller one containing a helping of small Wispa pieces. The lid is very much like the classic packaging of the Wispa bar - all Cadbury Purple, with a bright red Wispa logo, and an image of some of the dessert and a few Wispa chunks on a spoon.
Again, as with the other varieties in the range, I didn't find this dessert smells particularly strongly, but I remain 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 Wispa pieces actually seemed quite bland in comparison, though the different texture was welcome.
The Wispa pieces were a little bit scraggly-looking when compared to the image on the lid - they looked a little bit battered and like mis-shapes from the main Wispa production line. They were also quite small and I found that this disguised the bubbliness of the Wispa a little bit. There was however a good ratio of Wispa pieces to yoghurt so I found there was at least one or two 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 207 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 very high quality dessert, due to the calorie and fat content and the relatively high price, definitely one to save for treats.
Last week, when I was being a very good girl and sticking to my healthy eating regime I was devastated to find that my Mum had bought some Cadburys Wispa desserts in and they were sat staring up at me everytime I opened the fridge (why does she always buy the really good treats in when I've commited myself to a strict diet??!).
Needless to say, by the weekend I had cracked (my excuse was so I could write a DooYoo review, of course!) and grabbing the pot and a teaspoon I retreated to the sofa to luxuriate in my indulgence. The product comes in a 90g twinpot and retails for around 68p. In my opinion this is expensive for a single dessert especially when you can buy a 4 pack of supermarket's own brand mousses for probably a few pence more, but for a treat these really are delicious.
The "yoghurt" part is most definitely not a yoghurt, but a creamy, very chocolately dessert of very thick, dense consistency and I think you can definitely identify that Cadbury taste in there. The dessert section takes up about three quarters of the twin pot proportion, with about a quarter sized small pot full of Wispa chunks. Now I'm sure everyone has their own individual way of eating twin pot desserts, and my way is to just chuck it all in together, mix it up and wolf it down! I think that the proportion is great, with just the right amount of Wispa chunks so if you mix it all together you get between 2-4 chocolate pieces in every spoonful of dessert.

As you can see, and probably as you would expect, these aren't the ideal treat for the avid weight watcher, but everything in moderation.
In my opinion, and it's not just the Wispa twin pot dessert that has made me think this, but the Buttons and Flake too (ie. anything with just purely chocolate pieces) I feel that the dessert is so chocolately and creamy, the flavour actual chocolate pieces themselves is over ridden. In other words, it seems sometimes like the added pieces don't taste of very much at all, so it kind of misses its objective really.
To be honest though, I think that the heavy chocolate dessert is so filling and gorgeously indulgent that this doesn't really matter to me. I enjoy them just the same!
A little tip - don't leave the product out of refridgeration for any longish period of time (eg. a couple of hours or more - in your desk drawer at work for instance!) because the previously thick dessert transfers itself to liquid form and decides to explode from the plastic peel off lid as soon as you break the air seal, covering and staining your clothes. (trust me, I know from experience!!)
Thanks for reading.
It was whilst I was shopping in my local Asda superstore that I saw the 'twin pot' desserts from Cadbury, displayed quite nicely in the chiller cabinets in the store.
Seeing that there were several varieties of the dessert to choose from, from a 'Flake' variety to a Cadbury 'Buttons' option, I contemplated them all in turn, before finally settling on the 'Wispa' option, as this is one of my most favourite chocolate bars.
I noticed that the Twin pot desserts were on a 'bulk buy' offer where if I bought four of them they would cost me £2.50, which was fairly reasonable I thought, given that they cost the sum of 68 pence each. As I find some chocolate-based desserts to be a bit hit-and-miss, I did decide to just purchase the one dessert on this occasion to give it a try.
I opted to eat the dessert the following day, and grabbing my spoon, I settled down to enjoy the tasty pudding, quite content that it would be up to the usual high standard of the Cadbury's branding.
Peeling off the plastic-backed lid, I could see that the pot contained two sections - a large one containing the chocolate flavoured dessert and a smaller one containing small squares of chocolate, which I assumed were little chunks of 'Wispa' chocolate.
The chocolate flavoured dessert is what makes up the bulk of the pudding as in similar varieties of 'twin pot' desserts, such as Muller corner and the other varieties of Cadbury 'twin pot' desserts such as Flake etc.
The chocolate dessert is thick and gooey, similar to that of a 'Rolo' chocolate dessert or similar. For those of you who are unfamiliar with these, the chocolate 'yogurt' is more solid and denser than yogurt, and is more similar to 'fromage frais' in terms of consistency.
In this case though, the dessert is brown in colour and is chocolate-tasting... Yum! I did find that the chocolate flavoured 'yogurt' or 'mousse' (even though it wasn't either of these things - i'm not sure what to call it!) was delicous and had a very creamy and rich taste. I didn't find that it was overly- rich though, and in no way was it unpleasant tasting at all..! Quite the opposite was true in fact and I thoroughly enjoyed this part of the 'twin pot' dessert.
The little squares of chocolate were indeed very tiny, and to be honest I did feel a little cheated... To me, they were just little squares of 'Dairy milk' chocolate or something, as I certainly could NOT detect that lovely light and bubbly 'Wispa' texture that I know and love so much.
This in itself would be ok, but the fact that this is a 'Wispa' twin pot dessert made me believe I would be experiencing the taste and texture of Wispa chocolate, as you would. The fact that I felt this had nothing to do with Wispa, except perhaps the packaging, left me feeling a bit disappointed! The chocolate squares were of a very high quality to be fair, and I did find them as delicious and creamy as Cadbury's milk chocolate usually is... They just weren't Wispa chocolate, though!
This led to the whole dessert proving to be a bit of a disappointment to be honest, and I could not help but feel cheated by the lack of 'Wispa-ness'!
The nutritional information on the lid of the twin pot informs me that 100g of this dessert will provide me with 230 calories and 12.2g of fat (ahem!). I can also see that there is information to say that the product may contain nuts.
I can quite clearly see in the list of ingredients on the lid that the dessert contains pork gelatine, so it wouldn't be suitable for a vegan diet.
I wouldn't rate this dessert too highly - I've had MUCH better, frankly! I found it to be very much on the disappointing side and I therefore wouldn't buy it again. I can only really award it two stars... Shame on you, Cadbury! :-(
