Cadbury Caramel Biscuits
Advantages: nice biscuit
Disadvantages: not a lot in the pack
The other day I came across a new product line in Asda that I had not yet seen as they are new. They are Cadbury's Caramel Biscuits, being a very big fan of this chocolate; I knew that I had to shove a packet into my basket as I couldn't not try these. I noticed there were also Turkish Delight ones but I thought that sounded a little bit funny so at least with Cadbury's Caramel it's a much safer option and I know that I like them.
These biscuits are very easy to spot on the supermarket shelves with all of the other biscuits as they have the usual Cadbury's Caramel wrapper. It comes in a rectangular shaped packet with a tray for the biscuits and is in a yellow and purple foil wrapper with the logo on the front as well as a small image of the biscuits. The biscuits look very nice on the front and you can see they have a caramel centre and are little circle shapes.
The biscuits have their health information listed on the back of the packet. Per biscuits, they contain 70 calories (3.5%), 6.2g of sugar (6.9%), 3.8g (5.4%), 2.2g (11%) and lastly 0.06g salt (1%). These biscuits also contain wheat, milk, soya and may contain nuts and egg for allergy reasons. The biscuits are also suitable for vegetarians.
OK, so when opening the packet there is a black tray and it has 8 biscuits in it, each separated into pairs. They are quite thin well approximately 1cm thick biscuits and they are milk chocolate. I always have a cup of tea with my biscuit so I can dip the biscuits in. These have a very sweet smell to them and are very easy to bite into as the biscuit is not too hard. They have a thin layer of sugary Caramel on top and are a perfect combination with the Cadbury's chocolate.
Being quite small, these are not the most filling of biscuits so I found I had dipped in two and then wanted to have the next set of two. The biscuit is quite light but one thing I did find, maybe it is just because there's an added biscuit layer but the caramel tastes different on these from the original chocolate bar. The caramel isn't so prominent in the taste but as I aid it could be because there are three layers on these biscuits.
I do think these are great biscuits; I'm not as big a fan of them as I am the chocolate Cadbury's Caramel option but I do still think they are good for dipping in tea or fulfilling a sweet fix if I ever had one. There are only eight biscuits so one packet does go down pretty quickly but if you like Cadbury's chocolate then you will probably like these. As I said they don't taste as good as the chocolate but they are still very sweet and taste good.
I purchased these in Asda but also saw them on offer in other places being relatively new. So, for a 130g packet of eight biscuits it currently costs £1 which isn't too bad as I don't think I would pay anymore for them really.
Milk Chocolate (39%) (Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Dried Skimmed Milk, Milk Fat, Dried Whey, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin)) , Biscuit (Wheat Flour, Vegetable Fat, Sugar, Raising Agents (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate), Salt, Flavouring) , Caramel (24%) (Glucose Syrup, Sweetened Condensed Milk, Sunflower Oil, Humectant (Glycerol), Golden Syrup, Caramelised Syrup, Milk Fat, Salt, Flavouring).
On the official Cadbury's website there isn't any information on these being new, but they do have Turkish Delight and Cadbury's Crunchie ones out too if you want to try the whole range.
