“ Brand: Cadbury's / Type: Yoghurts „
I like the Cadbury's range of Chocolate desserts and this is the latest one I have tried. Perhaps not that cheap for what you get, but yummy nonetheless. I paid 58p for the 80g tub, and sometimes Asda does 4 desserts for £2, so a little saving to be had. These are found in the chiller section nearby to the yoghurts and other Chocolate desserts. The packaging for this was alright. It was a stardy enough plastic tub, which had a larger compartment and a small-ish one. The lid was a covering of cellophane which was easy enough pulled off. The main colouring was a deep purple and the lid had the Dairy Milk branding and a lighter blue colour as well. There was also a sticker on the side of the tub, but I thought that part wasn't strictly needed. This dessert has 270 calories and 13.9g fat, so I guess if you think of this in terms of a Chocolate bar, then it is probably quite average. The larger of the tubs was where the Chocolate was. Not quite a mousse, more like a bar of melted Chocolate. This was hard enough without being actually hard. I guess you could describe this more as sticky and shiney. The other compartment had little pieces of Shortcake Biscuit covered in Mlk Chocolate. I guess you could eat each section on it's own, but it tasted better when they were mixed together. There wasn't a huge amount of Shortcake bits, and the Chocolate side wasn't full to the brim either, but enough for a sweet treat. The Chocolate was Milky and Sweet, and the Shortcake was Buttery with a hint of Saltiness and it all mixed together very nicely. One of my favourites in the range.
I am a huge fan of Cadbury's confectionary products. In my eyes they rarely do anything wrong and no other brand tastes close to this. Cadburys dairy milk has an amazing flavour and they seem to be able to wave that magic wand over everything they do. I was pleased when I tried Cadburys dairy milk yoghurt that this was no exception. The yoghurt come in a traditional Cadbury's purple pot. It is plastic with a peel off foil lid to keep it fresh. I am not sure if any of the packaging is recyclable or not. The lid is blue and purple and has pictures of the yoghurt and shortbread on the front, which look very appetising. The purple pot is split into two sections, the major one being the yoghurt and the smaller one being round shortbread pieces coated in chocolate. They have a snap easy fold line down the middle with the idea being that you fold the pot in half and empty the contents of the shortbread into the youghurt and mix it in prior to eating. The lid peels off easily without making a mess and spraying yoghurt everywhere. The yoghurt is chocolate flavoured and is creamy and thick without being sickly. It is not fluffy like mousse. The shortbread is crunchy and hard and very tasty. Individually the two taste great, and together they taste even better as they compliment each other perfectly. For me the taste of this yoghurt is definitrely a 5/5. The only downsides I feel like I should mention, seeing as this is a review, is that the cost is quite high, even when on special offer. Also the calorie count is quite high, if that matters to you. It is just under 300 in one of these little pots!
Last night I went to visit my daughter and noticed her giving the girls' a lovely looking dessert in a purple pot that I hadn't seen before. I craftily offered to feed the baby hers so I could have a taste for myself! They are made by Cadbury's and are not a yogurt (as stated in the product title) but a chocolate dessert, it's a twin pot with the larger half of the pot holding a generous amount of smooth chocolate dessert and a smaller section containing lots of small balls of biscuit. The idea is to tip the balls into the dessert to make a more indulgent version of their Dairy Milk with Shortcake bar. Now, my granddaugher is only 15 months old so could choke on the balls, so I decided to do it the opposite way round and tip some of the dessert into the shortcake balls for myself. I was very impressed with the quality of this dessert, the chocolate is smooth and has a rich texture. It's quite a heavy chocolate dessert which is creamy in both appearance and consistency, it certainly has a very moreish and almost luxurious feel while eating. The taste is of good quality milk chocolate, very similar to melted down Cadbury's Dairy Milk although obviously not as chocolatey as that! It has rich taste which left me carefully licking the spoon to make sure I didn't miss any. Remember I shared my pot with my little granddaughter so I think it is only fair she should give her opinion, she's not quite talking yet but she certainly put across the impression that she was enjoying it by the way she called out for more when I was too slow with the spoon of dessert! I cannot say I blame her either because I think she knew Nanny would happily eat it if she wasn't quick! The shortcake balls add some interest to the dessert, but I much preferred the chocolate dessert without the balls. There was nothing at all wrong with them, they just seemed to cheapen the dessert somewhat. Doesn't that sound terribly snobbish? What I mean is that the dessert was just fine without adding something so uninspired as bits of biscuit The dessert coated the balls nicely and they stayed good and crunchy even after being submerged in chocolate dessert for a while. They have a general biscuit flavour but I would not say it is distinctly shortcake I can taste, which is a shame as I love shortcake. My two older granddaughters both agreed it was one of the best desserts they have had recently, although it turned out to be too sickly for the nine year old and she gave half of her pot to her big sister. I can see that it would become sickly because even though it is not overly sweet, I found it to be extremely rich after a few mouthfuls which is surprising for a dessert aimed at children like this is. Very good quality though, as it should be being Cadbury's. The 100g pot cost 66p from Tesco and my daughter said she bought hers as a 5 pots for £3 deal. Quite expensive really but if you are only planning to give these as a treat then that is not too bad a price to pay for such a tasty dessert. With 270 calories and 13.9g of fat I'd suggest you really do try to keep these for treats as your waistline will not thank you for eating too many of them!
