      A tasty occasional treat

      My 18 month old Son Jayden loves food and will eat pretty much anything I give him, he loves fruit particularly grapes and bananas so when he has a snack I mostly will give him something along those lines, however from time to time I do let him have a bit of a treat, one of his favourites being Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons.  He loves these so much that we cannot actually mention the word Buttons in our house and have to spell out the word rather than saying it, any mention of this word results in you being lead into the kitchen and positioned in front of the cupboard where they are kept.   There really isn't anything overly fancy about Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons, they are basically small round discs of Cadbury Daily Milk Chocolate, one side of the button is slightly domed and the other is totally flat with a slight criss cross pattern on it, other than this the chocolate buttons are totally plain.  The chocolate buttons have a lovely chocolatey smell to them and the distinctive taste that Cadbury Milk Chocolate has, it is sweet and creamy with a smooth texture.  The chocolate is quite thin, but this makes it ideal for me to give to my Son as the chocolate simply melts in the mouth.   Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons are reasonably high in calories despite the fact that they only come in small bags, each bag contains 170 calories and 9.6g of fat.  Personally I would not give Jayden something like this on a regular basis for a snack but once in a while I do not mind as a treat.  Again for myself these are a bit high in calories and fat but I have been know to have some with Jayden on the odd occasion.   Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Buttons are available from most supermarkets as well as convenience stores and shops where they have a confectionary section.  Individual bags are usually sold for around 55p, however in supermarkets you can purchase these in multi packs and they do work out a lot cheaper and better value for money.  I tend to by our chocolate buttons in multi packs and then just hide them in the cupboard, that way I have some for when needed and I also save a bit of money compared to if I buy individual bags.   As I have said Jayden loves Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Buttons, I too think these are extremely tasty and make a lovely treat.  The chocolate is sweet and creamy and has the distinctive Cadbury chocolate taste.  The buttons can work out a bit expensive if you buy individual bags but can be purchased cheaper in multi packs, the price is pretty average compared to similar items, and the chocolate is of such a good quality that they are worth the money, I would rather pay out a bit more for something for my Son and know that it is of an excellent quality.  Personally I think these are a bit high in calories, however I only give them to Jayden occasionally as a treat it is not something he has every day of the week so I do not really think this hurts once in a while.  I would definitely recommend these to anyone as a tasty treat.

        Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Buttons

        The Product = = = = = = Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons are flat, circular shaped, button shaped pieces. They are available to buy in a range of different countries including Ireland, Canada, Australia and more. Cadbury buttons have been about as long as I remember, as I used to love buying these with my pocket money when I was a child. In terms of packaging they have changed slightly as when I was younger they used to have nursery rhyme characters on the front with the nursery rhyme printed on the back of the packet. This made them really fun as I used to try and get a different once each time I purchased them. I still love Cadbury buttons today and also find them very moreish is why I will never purchase a sharing bag of these as I would more than likely eat the whole bag to myself. Packaging = = = = = The buttons come in a bright purple plastic bag which is the typical Cadbury colours. The bag I picked up has an owl on the front with 2 of the chocolate buttons for eyes. The packets have different animals on with buttons as their eyes. On the top of the bag it has the Dairy milk logo with the glasses of milk pouring and it has Cadbury in a gold, swirly font. The word buttons are on the front of the bag in white font which is quite big. On the back of the bag you will find a list of ingredients and nutritional information. It also has a best before end date, mine happens to be January next year so they have a good few months on them left, how-ever they will definitely be eaten by then. You can tell this is a Cadbury product due to the bright purple coloured packaging which Cadbury use in all their products. Price/Availability = = = = = = = = You can purchase a standard sized bag of Cadbury buttons from most local shops and supermarkets for about 46p. You can also purchase other Cadbury Button items from local shops and all good supermarkets. Prices may vary during different times of the year. * Cadbury Buttons Twin pot Dessert - 78p * Cadbury Buttons x 3 32g bags - £1.38 Dairy Milk also do white chocolate buttons as well which can be purchased in single bags from local shops and supermarkets. Nutritional Information = = = = = = = = = = = The following information is per standard sized bag: * Calories - 170 (9.4% RDA) * Sugars - 18.1g (21.3% RDA) * Fat - 9.6g (13.7% RDA) * Saturates - 6.0g (30.0% RDA) * Salt - 0.08g (2.0% RDA) Product contains: Milk May contain: Soya Appearance/Smell/Taste = = = = = = = = = = = = The packet is easy to open and opens just like a bag of crisps. You can also tear the bag open as well as the top of the bag is slightly uneven so it makes it tearing it open slightly easier for children. When I look into the bag I can see lots of little round milk chocolate discs. Some look a little bit bashed from where they have been knocking into each other in the bag. On the bottom of the buttons it has Cadbury engraved all over it. The top of the button is slightly rounded and smooth. The smell of the buttons is delicious. As soon as I smelt the buttons I could tell they were made by Cadbury as the chocolate smells creamy and sweet. The smell of the buttons made my mouth water and I couldn't wait to try them. I took one button and placed it on my tongue. It slowly started to soften and melt and I just had to start chewing it. It filled my mouth with a creamy chocolate taste that was just so delicious. Next I took a few of the buttons and put them in my mouth. I started to chew them and my mouth was again filled with a delicious creamy taste that was really smooth. I do find the buttons very, very moreish which is why I can only buy small bags of these otherwise I won't stop eating them. Overall Opinion = = = = = = = Cadbury is one of my favourite chocolate brands anyway as I love the creamy taste of their chocolate. I love the taste and texture of the buttons as they are so smooth and taste so delicious. The buttons are so more-ish as well which probably isn't a good thing, how-ever if you just stick to buying the small packets and have a packet every now and again it can't be too bad rather then buying a large sharing bag and scoffing the whole lot. I regularly eat buttons, but go through stages where I won't eat them for a while. My nephew also enjoys eating these and looking at the bright picture on the front of the bag representing an animal with buttons for the eyes. In terms of value these are slightly cheaper than a standard sized chocolate bar and taste just as good. I will continue to buy this product every now and again and recommend them to others.

          Highly recommended!

          I was searching the web for cake decoration ideas for my elder son's third birthday. Still not sure whether to prepare a dinosaur cake with green icing and Cadbury buttons on it or simply a marzipan covered cake with some trucks on it. I bought some (2 packs) Cadbury Buttons and we opened one yesterday while we watched Aladdin on DVD with the kids. The buttons disappeared so quickly that even Aladdin would admire my sons. Hehe If you are so lucky that haven't became addicted to them (yet) these milk chocolate buttons come in a Cadbury purple plastic bag or plastic box and they are available in various quantities. I bought our 187 g bag for 2.29 pounds. The buttons are about 1 cm in diameter and look like buttons. They are made of lovely and delicious Cadbury milk chocolate. Cadbury milk chocolate is my number one chocolate in the world. The second place is shared among about 10 other chocolate brands... I'm sweet-toothed and I really love chocolate. So back to these yummy buttons: they are made of that creamy milk chocolate and they just melt in your mouth. It is very morish so when you open a bag there is very little chance for surviving buttons. The ingredients are as follows: milk, Fairtrade sugar, Fairtrade cocoa butter, Fairtrade cocoa mass, vegetable fat, emulsifier (E442), flavourings. It contains at least 70% Fairtrade ingredients. Contains milk and may contain soya. The nutritional values per 100 g are as follows: Energy: 525 kcal Protein: 7.5 g Carbohydrate: 56.8 g Fat: 30 g Fibre: 0.7 g Sodium: 0.1 g I think Cadbury Buttons are really great for cake decoration as the buttons are flat and lightweight so they stick well on icing and marzipan as well. They taste like Cadbury milk chocolates usually do. If you think of the cake decorations in general usually they don't taste so good because the manufacturers concentrate on the design and durability not on the taste. Probably these buttons are simple and there are only a few cake types that can be decorated with them (ball, dinosaur, giraffe, tiger, dog, hat, simple spotty cake). It is always suitable for preparing the eye of an animal. I watched a video on youtube about decorating a dinosaur cake, so if it caught your attention search the site for it. The buttons occasionally stick to each other but can be separated easily. I found that almost all of them were in perfect condition so they weren't broken. Really delicious and appetizing.

            Brilliant tasting buttons but supermarket brands are cheaper

            ** Cadbury Buttons ** Having a bit of a sweet tooth one of the first things I reached for this Christmas was ye olde Cadbury selection box. Out of the box I pulled a small pack of Buttons. I haven't bought any Cadbury buttons for years so I was looking forward to seeing if they were as good as I rememered them. THe bag of buttons was smaller than the ones you see on sale seperately in the shops. I weighed it at 14 grams. I don't mind smaller bags as I overindulge at Xmas anyway so being able to have a something to satisfy my need for cvhocolate without being too high in calories is ideal. The buttons themselves are little round disks of Cadbury milk chocolate, domed slightly on one side and flat with a sort of cross hatch pattern on the other side. Somehow the different shaped top and bottom affect the taste depending on which way up you put the button in your mouth and suck it. The buttons are also nice if you keep them somewhee cool or chill them deliberately and then bite them instead of sucking them. But either way I ate the buttons I found the taste was exactly as I'd remebered them and I was not dissapointed. Eating the small 14g pack of Cadbury Buttons from my selection box made me want to buy seperate packs of Buttons in the future, so I will be adding them to my shopping list once in a while. Reading some of the other reviews on Buttons I noticed that some members think the price is a little high, so I might experiment and try a few dfferent brands, not just Cadbury's. I have a sneaky feeling that the Cadbury's ones will probably remain my favourite tasting chocolate button though, over all the supermarket home brands.

            not bad but not one of my first choices

            Cadbury dairy milk buttons are a fairly simple product in that they are just Cadburys normal dairy milk chocolate shaped into little button shapes. They are a bit plain and a bit boring to be honest but that doesn't mean they don't taste great and I do still like them. The shape of buttons is like a shirt button, there are a cm big in circumference or just over actually and there also really thing meaning that when you put these on your tongue they start to melt straight away in your mouth which is really good. The taste of these is just the Cadbury dairy milk taste as they are made out of the same chocolate but just shaped into little buttons. The chocolate is really milky and really sweet and is by far my favourite big brand manufactured chocolate available on the shelves. I do like these buttons however they aren't really anything special, there a bit boring and there quite expensive for what your getting. There a similar price to other chocolate products for a fairly small bag with only so many buttons in there, so whilst I would enjoy them if I ate them, I wouldn't really go out of my way to buy a packet of these as there's many other chocolate products that I prefer out there.

            Greab yourself a bag

            Cadburys buttons are little discs of delight. Cadburys chocolate at its best The look? Now it says these are buttons, don't be thinking they look like your jacket ones as theses only resemble the shape not the actual detail of a button. These are Cadburys at their best. Price? A 175 gram bag will cost you around £1.84 so around £1 for 100 grams. About the Taste? These are lovely Cadburys milk chocolate on their own, the big button version have a bite to them as appose to the smaller ones which are thinner in size. These taste really nice, very chocolatey and are great to eat and save for later on, assuming you can make yourself do this. Healthy? 525 kcals per 100 grams, this is fairly high I think. The traffic lights are fat sat fat and sugar as all red, sugar is 56 grams per 100 grams, fat is almost 30 grams per 100 grams. Each giant button is 15 kcals on their own and to say you can fit about 4 in your mouth easily this could soon add up calorie wise. Conclusion? Superb tasting chocolate, very moreish, easy to eat but watch the calorie count on these as they are very deceptive

            Haven't Changed in Years!

            I was on the bus the other day and I spied a child with his mother eating a bag of cbocolate buttons! Well, I can tell you that I really did feel like taking candy from a baby (I resisited don't worry) but did pop into the next available newsagents to get a packet of these! I am not a great chocolate lover as I find it a bit sickly (especally larger thicker bars), but I took such a craving for these I had to get some. Well, the most important thing about a button, is that (apart from the price) they haven't changed since I was the age of the child I was going to rob. You're looking at paying 60p these days for a bag, which conains about 30 discs of taste. Maybe a little bit expensive but worth it! The buttons themselves are full of flavour - just the right texture, that provided you don't let them melt in your pocket, you can bite into two and get that wonderful cruch, or let them melt on your togune to get the full creamy flavour of the chocolate! Calorie wise, I think these are a good option, provided that you don't beat the whole bag into you in one go - they are handy in that they are a snack you can have with you the whole day and dont have to eat all at once - however, I have had trouble doing this since they taste so good!

            Great chocolate treat for the children and me.

            Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons are known as chocolate buttons by most. You can get them in different size packets and can also now buy not only normal chocolate buttons, but giant buttons too. These chocolate buttons are made by Cadbury's and the recipe is that of their dairy milk chocolate but shaped in to small flat buttons. There aren't any button holes though. The buttons individually are approximately 1 cm in diameter and curved on the top. On the flat underside of the button is the Cadbury name. Nutritional Info (based on 30 gram bag): Energy kJ - 725 kJ Kcal - 175 kcal Protein - 2.5 grams Carbohydrate - 18.7 grams Carbs of sugars - 18.7 grams Fat - 9.9 grams Fat of saturates - 6.2 grams Fibre - 0.2 grams You can pick up a 3 pack of 30 gram packets for £0.96 in Asda, you can also buy the bags in newsagents and petrol stations for anywhere between £0.40-£0.60. A rip off if you ask me. They are tasty and chocolately and suitable for children, the 30 gram bags are great as a treat and they also fit in to lunch boxes. The chocolate is typically creamy, smooth and lovely, I would say the normal size buttons are slightly too small for adults and I often find I put a whole handful in my mouth at once, which is mostly the whole bag. The bags are 'Cadbury' purple and plastic, they are air tight to keep the chocolate fresh. I don't think the packaging makes any difference if you have one bag open and one sealed and eat them a week later they do still taste exactly the same. Chocolate is chocolate, it doesn't go off like bread or other items. I really like Cadbury buttons and will always opt for a Cadbury Button Easter egg, I like the buttons as the extra chocolate that comes inside. They are a very basic idea but one that will last.

              /

              Have you ever seen that advert with the cheese on toast? Somebody see's somebody eating it, so they go and have some, then somebody see's them with it, and someone else goes and has it, and so on. Well I was in a similar situation a couple of weeks back. I was at the shops, -minding my own business-, when I saw a youth sitting on a bench, tucking into a pack of cadburys buttons. There and then, I knew I must have a bag, and so I set off to find some. Somewhere on my travels however I got distracted, and I ended up NOT buying any, and totoally forgetting about them. A couple of days later my Grandma invited me up to her house to help my little cousins bake for my aunties birthday the following day. I love to bake, and so there was no doubting i'd be up there helping. We made various types of cakes, including some plain sponge cakes. The time came to decorate them and my grandma produced bags of chocolatey sweets and chocolate and plain icing. That was when my heart skipped a beat- when my grandma plonked a large bag of cadburys buttons on the worktop. All the way through decorating the cakes, I secretly desired to scoff the bag up myself. However, my little cousins polished them off instantly, leaving me with only 3 in the bottom of the bag. I popped them into my mouth and they were delicious. So two days later, I was taking a quick trip to tesco to get some milk and yogurts for my mum, when I decided since I had been given the short straw a few days ago, with the baking scenario, Id treat myself to a bag of cadburys buttons. I plodded off to the sweetie aisle in search of my little treat. It took me about three minutes to actually find the bloomin' things, however when I did find them, my cravings became almost too much, as I grabbed the bag of the shelf and basically ran to the check outs in order to purchase. The bag I purchased, was a standard size, pack of 32g. When I got to the check out, the kind lady foolishly told me if I wanted to grab another packet I could, and it would only cost me 70p. One pack of cadburys chocolate buttons costs 36p. This would only make a saving of 2p, but I thought what the hell, and darted back to buy another packet. So off i plodded home with my bag of milk, yogurts and two packets of chocolate buttons. If you dont know, basically chcolate buttons are little medium -thickness disks of plain cadburys milk chocolate. On returning home, it was almost tea time, and so I decided it would be better to wait till later to indulge. So along with my other purchases I placed my chocolate buttons into the fridge, untill i was ready to retrieve. Tea passed, and sitting watching the television, i suddenly remembered my glorious bags of cadbury goodness sitting waiting for me in the fridge. Id had quite a large dinner, and I told myself (or tried to tell myself, I didnt actually need to have these). But i didnt listen to myself and I went and got my little 32g bag from the fridge. I returned back to my armchair and began to examine the bag. It was made of plasticy material, not very thick, but by no means thin. The bag is prodominatly the cadburys colour- a deep shade of purple, very noticable and is automatically in my mind linked to cadburys creamy chocolate. CADBURY DAIRY MILK buttons is written in white writing on the top of the bag, and underneath there is a large picture, of a chocolate button. No, not the chcolate, an actual button. The button is surrounded by a yellow glow, suggesting a heavenly eating experience. I turned over the bag to get a quick look at the calories and nutrition info on the back. On the back its clearly stated that each bag conatins, 170 calories and 9.6g of fat. I wasnt too shocked by this, as after all its plain chocolate. The pack also tells us that the ingrediants used are _Milk, Sugar, Cocoa Mass, Cocoa Butter, Vegetable Fat, Emulsifier (e442), Flavourings._. I fingered my bag, and I was pleasently surprised to find it felt quite full and so far I was definitly impressed. I opened up the pack and emptied afew chocolate buttons out onto my hand. As they had been in the fridge they were freezing cold, and very tempting indeed. The time had come. I threw back 2 chocolate buttons in to my mouth and sat them on my tongue. Immediatly I tasted a creamy taste, rather sweet, but not over-poweringly so. Delicious. They sat on my tongue for about 10 seconds, before beggining to melt away and trickle down the back of my throat. The chocolate tasted -unsurprisngly- of cadburys dairy milk bars, very pleasing and very more-ish indeed. After I had polished of the bag- which let me tell you didnt take very long, I nestled my nose into the bag. I took a great sniff, and weirdly there was still a very strong smell of chocolate dancing up from the bag. Very impressive! Overall I definitly will be buying these agian. I totoally forgot how scrumtious they are, and for some reason they dont make me feel as guilty as they dont seem so much of a sin, compared to an actual bar of chocolate. These are also very handy for little kids as they are bitesize and easy to either suck or chew. In my opinion they are best eaten when straight from the fridge, as they are creamy and smooth, yet when you bite into them they have a definite "crunch". 5 Sense summary *Sight- rounded slightly domed brown disks *Sound- crunch if been kept in fridge *Texture- smooth and creamy *Smell- a definite chocolate scent *Taste- gorgeous milk chocolate, creamy yet pleasently sweet. SweetTooth 93. Also on ciao under same name!

              Disadvantages

              see the end of the review

              Cadbury Buttons involves an incredibly simple idea that has turned out to be a leading part of Cadburys. This idea basically involves turning a Dairy Milk bar into little bite-size circles. Hence the name, buttons. Although the idea is very simple. It works very well and despite being pretty much the same chocolate as a Dairy Milk bar, Buttons somehow taste that little bit better. Taste On the taste side of things. Buttons are pretty much unfaulted, well apart from the fact that they are a bit small but thats for the next paragraph. With the Dairy Milk bars, I found that the chocolate was just to hard to bite into. Although the Cadbury Buttons completely eliminates this problem and therefore makes the chocolate taste better since you can eat it easier. Appearance and Price Well the packaging isn't really anything special. Not that it doesn't do its job, its that its just a bog standard mini packet. Although this is not a disadvantage. Appearance has already been mostly described. Just to go over, in a bag I would guess there are about 13-15 buttons. Each one is about 1cm in diameter which is not bad. Instead of focusing on making multipacks which is Cadburys normal take on making the items bigger. Cadbury Buttons has large bags avialable and also bags of giant Buttons. Personally, I think the giant Buttons are better value as you get more eating in them for the money. Forgot to mention this; a standard bag of buttons will cost around 40-50p. Personally I think this is over the top due to the amount of Buttons you get in a packet. So overall, Buttons are a very simple idea, but a very good one too. The taste is much better than normal Dairy Milks although the price is a bit high.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A great alternative to Dairy Milk.

                Cadbury Buttons contains some great chocolate, and are a classic at the heart of millions. The packaging is very nice and eye catching. It always keeps the product fresh and although it is very thin, the product never seems to be broken. It is usually easy to open, but it can sometimes be fiddly trying to grab hold of the two tabs. Inside, you get a lot of buttons, but the packaging is quite big so it seems like you are going to get more, making it disappointing to open the pack. The smell is very rich but not overpowering so it will drift into your nose making you want to eat them all up. The size of each button is quite small, so they all pop into your mouth very easily. The chocolate is very smooth and they are soft to eat. They will melt in your mouth and are very more-ish so you will always want more. However, with their size, they aren't very filling so you may feel hungry after a couple of minutes. They are very sweet but not overpowering, and have an after-taste that is very sweet so you may become thirsty. This is good as they go very well with milk, making them extra creamy. The buttons are cheaper than ordinary chocolate bars, which shows as you get less chocolate than a normal bar. However, they are a great snack and a tasty treat, making them worth it even though they may not be as filling as normal bars. They are as unhealthy as chocolate bars but they are worth it with the great smell and taste. Overall, a great treat that is great value for money, with creamy chocolate and a rich smell. They are very addicting so you will always want more.

                a great button

                cadburys buttons have been a favorite of mine since I was a young child and I dont think it is going to change any time soom. Cadburys buttons are available in small bags or large bags, I prefer the large bags my self perfect for sharing. As the name sugests they are button shaped small pieces of chocolate just slightly larger than a 1p piece, they are made from delicious cadburys milk chocolate and taste fantastic as cadburys always does. My favorite part about these is that I can put one on my tongue and waite for it to melt so the pack lasts me ages, these are also ideal for giving to young children as the small packs are easy to hold and each button is small enough to be put in there mouth whole but not small enough to choke on. Cadburys buttons small bags cost around 30p and the large bags are £1 in most supermarkets

                Lovely but I wish they weren't here to tempt me all day long!!!

                About a year ago, a new woman started working in my office. SHe is a nice lady but she started a trend which I really wish she hadn't. She continually brings in chocolate for the office. It gets opened and then left on a table in the corner where we can help ourselves. How very kind and generous you might think! How evil and unfair I think!!! One of the things she brings in with alarming frequency is packs of Cadbury Buttons! Great big packs at that! I love Cadbury Buttons, I always have since I was a kid. Cadbury's Dairy Milk is by far my favourite chocolate, rich and creamy, just sweet enough without being overly sweet, combined with a wonderful texture which starts as a firm bite and melts away to a soft rich goo. These buttons are truely a wonderful example of the chocolate. In the form of a small round disk a millimetre or two thick, they are big enough to give you nice taste of chocolate in your mouth and small enough to melt very quickly, which of course helps get the lovely flavour and texture swirling round your teeth and gums leaving you wanting more, which is good because even in the small packs there are a good number for you to eat. The temptation of an open, unguarded packet is very very hard to resist, which I really must as I am trying to lose weight. I am calorie counting at the moment, and with a small bag (32.4g) weighing in at 170 calories, these are not really the kind of thing you want to be snakcing on if you intend to keep the calories low! On occasion I do relent, normally when I'm very stressed or tired or just hungry, and have a few buttons but I really try to make sure I only have two or three because they are very moreish and if I let myself go, I could easily polish off the entire pack (no matter what size) very quickly. Whilst I love Cadbury Buttons, I do wish the woman in my office would stop bringing them in and tempting us all. However, I think it's unlikely. As I write this there is a back open staring at me across the office, I can almost hear the feint murmor "eat me" coming from the bag. Damn you Cadbury's Buttons you tasty splodges of yum!!!

                  YUM

                  I dont know who had the idea to make a chocolate version of a button but there ok in my books! Essentially thats all a cadburys button is - a small solid milk chocolate piece shaped into a button! Crazy but inspired. The reasoning must be to give people a small bitesize version of a normal cadbury bar. I suppose giving regular chocolate a gimmick would also appeal to younger consumers! Im not sure what part of a button is fun but kids seem to love them! I suppose the plus side is that if you share a bag with someone each button is only around 5 calories so its not too bad for you. As with all cadbury chocolate however there is a tonne of sugar and quite a large amount is fat! Anyone buying chocolate however is probably more concerned with what is going to taste nicer rather than how bad it is for you! A small bag will set you back 30p or so. There are Giant buttons (50p) and family bags (£1) both are good value for money but as with all things your going to get more chocolate for your money if you go for the simple bar! They taste great and I love em! Any chocolate lover will too!!

                  One of my first choices for a chocolate craving!

                  Cadbury`s make many fine chocolates but one of my very favourite is the one that is most probably designed for kids. The chocolate in question is the wonderful Cadbury chocolate buttons, a packet of small button shaped chocolates that are simply small sections of the well known Cadbury dairy milk but for some reason or another they just seem to taste better. They are available in many different sized packets ranging from the tiny snack packs to the massive share packs, the average size packet is the 34g bag which is priced between 40 and 50p depending where you buy them. This size of packet is designed to be in the same market as the likes of the dairy milk and things like a Mars bar or Twix`s and for me it is a must buy when I need a bit chocolate. You can now buy giant buttons which is exactly what it sounds like bigger buttons, personally I prefer the normal sized ones and the ordinary 34g packet is the one I always buy, I find it is just enough to satisfy a chocolate craving and with 170 calories and 9.7g of fat it is probably about as much as one should eat at a single sitting anyway!
