      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Cheap, delicious and great for lunch boxes

      These little cake bars are truly delicious. At 130 calories per cake bar they aren't the worst thing for you but they are so yummy I could easily eat all five out of the packet. Not good for my waistline.

      The cake bars are individually wrapped which make them very convenient for lunch boxes and at a cost of £1.60 for 5 they are also a relatively cheap treat. Suitable for vegetarians, these chocolate flavoured sponges topped with caramel and covered with milk chocolate have 14g sugar and 6g fat. Again not good for waistlines. So if you are a dieter, I am sorry!

      I keep these cakes in the fridge which makes the chocolate covering have a slight crunch and the caramel a little harder and less gooey. In my opinion they are more delicious this way.

      Complete list of ingredients
      Milk Chocolate (36%) [Sugar, Cocoa Mass, Cocoa Butter, Dried Skimmed Milk, Vegetable Fat, Milk Fat, Dried Whey, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin)],Caramel Topping (31%) [Sweetened Condensed Milk, Salted Butter, Invert Sugar Syrup, Glucose Syrup, Sugar, Humectant (Glycerol), Gelling Agents (Pectin, E401), Salt, Flavouring, Preservative (Potassium Sorbate)] ,Wheat Flour ,Glucose Syrup ,Sugar ,Pasteurised Whole Egg ,Humectant (Glycerol) ,Fat Reduced Cocoa ,Dried Whey ,Soya Flour ,Vegetable Oil ,Salt ,Raising Agents (E450, Sodium Bicarbonate) ,Emulsifiers (E475, E471) ,Milk Protein ,Preservative (Potassium Sorbate)

      There are many different cadbury cake bars and after these I will definitely be trying others.

        Disadvantages

        A perfect combination of caramel, chocolate and cake.

        O.K. So I'm doing another cake review. I know people reading this must imagine me to weigh about 30 stone, but honestly, I dont. Not yet anyway....Hey, I eat all this stuff for the sake of a good review. I can't review it if I haven't tried it, now can I?


        Anyway, as you know, I am a sucker for a supermarket promotion deal. And this week, Cadburys cake bars were on promo at Sainsburys for £1 for a pack of six bars. The cake bars come in box made of thin card, with a thin plastic wrapping around the outside. The packaging looks very striking, due to the colours, which are the classic Cadburys purple, and the gold of the caramel logo. These colours stand out because they contrast, and make the pack stand out from the other cakes on the shelf.


        The front of the pack has a tempting picture of a cake bar, cut away so you can see inside. You can see that the bar consists of a chocolate cake, with a layer of caramel on top, surrounded by a thin layer of chocolate. The bars are part of a range of cakes that cadbury are producing, based on their popular chocolate bars. The other cakes in the range include mint crisp, orange crisp, fudge and milk chocolate. If you are a fan of the chocolate bar, you will enjoy this, as the caramel is the same gooey caramel they use in the chocolate bar.


        The bars are individually wrapped, making them perfect for lunchboxes, snacks, travelling, or picnics. They are prone to melt though, being chocolate, so are best kept in a cool place. They are a great size to have as a snack during a coffee break, or mid afternoon when you want a bit of a boost, or a chocolate fix.


        The cakes themselves are very good quality, just what you would expect from Cadburys. The Chocolate is only thin, but delicious. the cake is light, and the gooey caramel is the real highlight of the whole experience. It is just the right consistency, not too runny and not chewy. If you like the caramel keg in cadburys roses chocolates, this cake is for you! The cakes are light, and don't make you feel full after you have eaten them.


        On the back of the pack the nutritional information is displayed. Each cake bar contains:

        Cal 135
        Sugar 14.9g
        Fat 6.4g
        Saturates 3.9g
        Salt 0.25g

        Cadburys do not state the weight of an individual cake, but it is about 40g.


        The packaging is recyclable, and the product is labeled as suitable for vegetarians. there is a warning that the product may contain traces of nuts, but there are no nuts on the ingredient list. i have nut allergy and have no problem eating these.


        Cadburys cake bars are an ideal treat for any time of the day, and would appeal to anyone, young or old. The delicious combination of creamy chocolate, light sponge and smooth caramel, makes these cakes a little bit special, and I would certainly buy them again, whether or not they were on special offer.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!

        I brought these when they was on special offer in Morrisons for £1.00, the main reason because we needed some bits for my sisters lunchbox but in the finish they was all gone the same night so she didn't get chance to take one to school! lol

        You get 5 cake bars in a pack and they are all wrapped up seperate so they're perfect for kids to take to school.... unless it's very young kids because they're bound to get covered in chocolate!

        The cake bars are made of chocolate sponge, then on top there is a layer of caramel and it's all coated in Cadburys chocolate. They do taste like a bar of Cadburys Caramel a bit but because of the sponge they taste more of cakes than chocolate bars.

        They've got a yummy taste. The sponge has got a gorgeous chocolatey taste, it's not as light as I thought it would be but that's ok because it makes the cake dead filling even though they're quite small.

        I LOVE the caramel, it's a bit more solid than in a Caramel bar and mega sweet. It's got a gorgeous sugary flavour that made me want another one straight away, when you bite into the cake it feels like there's loads more caramel than there is on the cake because of how sweet it is but it doesn't ever get over powering or anything.

        The chocolate that covers the cake is like Dairy Milk chocolate only not quite as sweet as that. It goes proper nice with the sponge and caramel but melts a bit quick so if you don't eat it asap you'll end up with a load of melted chocolate all over your fingers.

        I deffo recommend these cakes and also the other ones that Cadburys make, they're sweet and majorly moorish and I bet you have trouble stopping at just one!!! If you're looking for different things to put in lunchboxes then these are ideal and they're usually on offer somewhere so as long as YOU can leave them alone they'll be one for every day of the school week for only £1.00!

        Recommended!!!

          Delicious little cake bars

          I love these types of cake bars which are full of chocolate and just so delicious and these Cadbury caramel cake bars are no exception - I could eat so many of them!

          A pack contains 5 individually wrapped cake bars which are about the same size as Cadbury's chocolate mini rolls. The bar is a chocolate flavoured sponge with a layer of sticky caramel on top which is all surrounded with Cadbury's gorgeous milk chocolate.

          As you would expect from Cadbury, the milk chocolate coating is delicious and has that lovely milky chocolate flavour that all of Cadbury's chocolate does. The coating is fairly hard but thin so it breaks easily when you bite into it. The sponge inside is very soft, light and fluffy just like the sponge you get in the mini rolls. The layer of caramel isn't either hard or soft so it isn't too hard to bite into nor is it too soft and liquidy that it will seep out all over your hand when you bite into it. The caramel is just the right texture to go well in a cake and it tastes deliciously sweet and toffeeish. The caramel does make these a little sickly so they have the benefit of making you stop eating before the whole packet is gone.

          Like other types of branded cake snacks like these, for only 5 in a pack they are pretty pricey at around £1.20 but they are often on offer and an occasional treat of these won't pull too much on your purse strings.

          These are a deliciously tasty treat for either school or work lunches, picnics or just for a little treat at home. As I said, they can get a little sickly due to the sweet and smooth caramel so you shouldn't get through the pack too quickly unless you've got a very sweet tooth!

          .

          Another Cake Bar for me to review. You will probably see from now that I love Cakes, and Birds Eye products.

          These Cakes are £1.40 for the 5 Bar pack, or 2 for £2 just now at Asda.

          These are individually wrapped Cakes which are on a cardboard tray and wrapped in an outer layer.

          these are part of the few Cadbury's Cake Bars that are out now. There is quite a few to choose from and this was the first time I have tried these ones.

          These were a Chocolate sponge which seemed a bit drier than other Cake Bars i've had. I think I prefer them when they are a bit more moist than this. On top of the Cake there was a thick layer of Cadbury's Caramel which was sticky and sweet and the Bar was covered in Milk Chocolate. I understand why the Chocolate was a thin covering, but it would have been nice if this was a bit thicker.

          Each bar has 140 calories and I could manage about 3 in a row of the standard Cake Bars.

          This wasn't my favourite in the range. This is mostly down to the dry Sponge, as the Chocolate was nice, and the amount of Caramel was enough. I will stick to others in the range instead of these ones.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A brilliant packet of cakes.

          These are a brilliant packet of cakes. They have the usual quality that we have come to expect from Cadbury, combined with a fantastic taste and superb flavour, pretty much everyone will love them. However, they are quite small, have a large sugar content and not very filling.

          The packaging is basic, with a nice design but follows the usual branding making it easy to recognise on the shelf. The text is also bright and crisp, making it easy to read. The packets can be opened easily, and the product is always fresh. However, the plastic is quite thin so the cakes can sometimes be squashed which is rather annoying and messy. The big image on the front will make your mouth water and you will put them in the basket as it looks delicious.

          The price is very good, offering great value for money. You get quite a lot in the pack, and they aren't that much more than alternative brands, so for the higher quality it's worth it.

          The quality is higher, with a thick layer of cake combining with a creamy caramel layer. They don't hold back and the product is always fresh with the same crisp taste every time.

          When you open the packet, a nice sweet smell drifts out making your mouth water and beg for your to eat some. It also looks delicious, crumbling away and melting in your hand. It will melt straight away in your mouth, creating a soothing soft taste in your mouth. This is very rich and creamy, but not too over powering. Next, you get the cake that crumbles away, mixing with the chocolate to create a soothing experience. Finally, you get the thick caramel that is very sweet. However, it mixes with the rich chocolate and the cake to create a superb mix of textures and flavours.

          However, they do have quite a high sugar content and they are small, not really filling someone up.

          In conclusion, a superb product from Cadbury. They taste great and offer great value for money while still offering the high quality that we have come to expect from Cadbury.

            Lovely cakes!

            Iceland cake shelves are a nuisance for me, everything is just so tempting, especially when the majority of cakes cost just £1. If they were £2 mind I wouldn't be interested but just £1, how on earth can I resist! Well I definitely couldn't resist when I spotted Cadbury Cake Bars Caramel for just £1.

            We're all familiar with Cadbury they produce some delectable products, so I was sure these would live up to those high standards.

            I picked the deep purple and golden yellow pack of 5 individually wrapped cake bars and headed off home ready to indulge! On the back of the packet it says 'Enjoy these delicious caramel cake bars smothered in cadbury milk chocolate with a smooth caramel filling'. Mmm Mmm!

            Each cake bar contains;
            145 calories
            16.1g sugars
            6.7g fat
            4.1g saturates
            0.28g salt

            Each cake bar is what I'd call snack size, but they were enough. They were similarly sized to mini rolls but being a 'cake' bar were a different shape rather than a 'roll'.

            Upon opening an individually wrapped cake bar I was greeted by smooth brown chocolate. Tucking in I could instantly recognise the smooth, creamy milk chocolate. It is only a thin coating but it is more than pleasing. My teeth then sunk into sweet, sumptously soft and smooth caramel, golden in colour and just as rich in taste. This stunning sweetness is soon mellowed down slightly by the fluffy and light sponge which isn't dry, nor too moist it is exactly right!

            I mentioned the chocolate coating is thin, it is .. but it's just the right amount, if there was anymore it would probably make the cake bar way too rich and sickly! The smooth layer of caramel is thick and plentiful and the soft sponge evens all the flavours and textures out stunningly!

            These make a very tasty treat, and I do mean 'treat' as they are such a rich tasting cake bar!

              Disadvantages

              Delicious chocolatey / caramel snack

              I picked these up recently at my local corner shop. They were in a "family size" box of 10.


              Packaging:

              The 10 cake bars are invidually wrapped in a predominantly purple wrapper which keeps them isolated from the air once the wrapper covering the main carton has been opened. The cake bars are laid in the carton which has part of the top missing & is wrapped with a plastic covering. Again this is predominantly purple, with parts of white & yellow. Towards the right hand side it reads "10 cakes Family Pack". The back of the pack lists the Customer Care details, the ingredients & the nutritional information.


              Nutrition: per cake bar {per 100g in brackets}
              Energy kJ: 595 kJ {1790kJ}
              Energy kcal: 140 kCal {430kcal}
              Protein: 1.7 g {6.0g}
              Carbohydrate: 18.9g {56.8g}
              of which sugars: 15.9g {47.8g}
              Fat: 6.7g {20.0g}
              of which saturates: 4.1g {12.4g}
              Fibre: 0.4g {1.2g}
              Sodium: 0.11g {0.32g}
              Salt Equivalent 0.28g {0.80g}

              Allergy information: May contain traces of nuts.


              The cake bar:
              The bar is completely covered in Cadbury's chocolate. On biting into it you'll notice that the bottom of the cake bar is chocolate sponge of about 3/4 to 1 centimetre in thickness. On top of this is the caramel layer which reaches around 1/2 a centimetre thickness at it's thickest point.


              Taste:
              This tastes very chocolatey. The sponge is neither too dry nor too moist & the caramel is smooth. The overriding taste, though, is of chocolate and it's quite sweet. Choc-a-holics will love them, but for those of you not that keen on chocolate cakes / desserts I'd think that one bar would be enough.


              Price:
              I paid the princely sum of 99p for these in my local corner shop. Cazkins's review suggested that they were £1.20 - £1.30 in Tasco's for a box of 5 so if you do find any of these family pack size anywhere I'd expect them to be around the £2.00 mark or perhaps higher.


              Opinion:
              A very handy size if you need a chocolate "hit". The caramel stops the cake bar from feeling too dry & the fact that they're invidually wrapped means that you don't have to worry about them drying out or going soft if you wrap them in cling film or foil.
              However, the sugar & fat content is quite high. One cake bar will provide an adult with 17.7% of their Recommended Daily Amount of sugar and 9.6% of their RDA for fat so these are perhaps best avoided by dieters or those watching their weight.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Considering I find sponge and cadbury's in general a bit dry, I love these!

                'm not usually a big fan of sponge cakes because I find them quite dry and bland, but these are an exception for me (along with French Fancies, yum!)

                Cadbury is obviously a very popular and respectable brand, so you'd expect their products to be quality and made from much knowledge and experience. Their cake bar range has expanded a bit recently with a few special edition varieties, but this review is for the caramel cake bars, which have been around for years now. Despite that, I find that they can be difficult to come across for some strange reason, as my local Tesco doesn't sell them and neither does my nearest Morrisons. Anywho, they're found in the cakes & biscuits isle and come in a cardboard tray of 5, with the classic purple and gold wrapping. On the front is a picture of the cake to tempt you and it looks as good as it tastes. They cost around £1.20-30 (£1.27 Tesco, currently on offer 2 for £2.30 13.4.09)

                Each cake comes individually wrapped so they'll stay fresh once the main wrapper is opened. The end by date usually gives you around 3 weeks in which to eat them, though they never last that long in our house. Each cake contains 120 calories and 6g fat, so it's about average for a snack-sized treat. The cakes aren't huge by any means, in fact they're quite small and rectangular in shape (as you'd expect).

                I find they're actually the perfect size as they're quite rich, so more than one and they'll be quite sickly. They're simply chocolate flavoured sponge with a layer of caramel on top, covered in Cadbury milk chocolate. How do they taste? I find them to have a very rich chocolate taste so they're great if you need a chocolate high :o) The chocolate coating is smooth, though quite dry as I find with all cadbury's chocolate. This is nicely balanced out by the smooth caramel, which is thick enough to really liven the soft sponge.

                There's nothing negative I can find to say about these really, unless you don't have a particularly sweet tooth in which case you may find these a little sickly. The wrapper on individual cakes is a little flimsy and thin, but that's not so important so they definitely get a thumbs up from me.

                Overall, I'd definitely recommend trying them as I think they're delicious, though wouldn't buy them too regularly because they're a tad expensive to be buying every few days. They're rich, smooth and make a perfect 'me-time' snack.
