This is quite a sweet chocolate bar, and something that you will probably find that you like or don't. I find it a little bit too sweet for me, but Mr Siamese loves it and can't get enough. Because it is such a familiar brand, I am sure that you will have tried it at some stage and can make your own mind up. If you want to buy something for the chocolate lover in yoru life, chances are that you can't go wrong with this brand.
I do recommend it, simply because everyone I know seems to like it (even though I prefer Milka - yumm!) and have goven it 4 stars on that basis.
I am a huge fam of cadburys chocolate and their confectionary products. I love the taste of dairy milk, I think it is second to none. cadburys have been going so long now (over 100 years) and they still have all their traditional products on the market. I have tried and reviewed a lot of them, with the vast majority me completely loving. The problem is even when I do love the flavour, the two minor downsides are cost and calories, and it looks like this chocolate bar could cure one of those problems!
Cadburys dairy milk thins is designed to be a lower calorie version of the dairy milk bar. It comes in very similar packaging. The wrapping is traditional Cadburys purple with the cadburys logo on it, however to emphasise the lower calories the cadburys logo appears to be a bit squashed! It states dairy milk on it, with the dairy milk logo, which makes sure noone can be put off! The wrapping can easily be removed to reveal the bar below, without destroying the bar by squashing it. The only downside here is that I do not think the wrapping is recyclable.
The bar underneath looks almost identical to the dairy milk bar except it is much thinner and smaller. This is how they keep the calories low at only 100, they do not change te recipe they just make it smaller. The fantastic thing about this is that it retains that classic flavour, unlike many chocolate bars for dieters they just never compare.
I would really recommend this bar for those who are trying to lose a bit of weight or are just a bit more health concious when chosing their chocolate bar. It is also good for those who are not quite as hungry-because, to be honest it just contains less!
Cadbury's chocolate. What can i say? Would everyone agree it is a winner? It is sweet and soft while being smooth and crunchy. It is suited to everyone's taste and makes trying to go on a diet such hardwork. I tend to eat any type of chocolate as long as it is chocolate or sweet! I really enjoy eating this as it normally melts in your mouth and it is sweet and yummy! Sometimes i even enjoy breaking the chocolate up and putting it in a mixing bowl then in the microwave for about one minute at 900W stiring it and then putting it in again and then enjoying the melted chocolate and eating it with a small spoon to savour it! I really do enjoy this chocolate although i have to say it can get a bit boring after a while so if you are looking for excitment then you should probably try one of their other varities like the chocolate and orange bits.
** Me, Myself & Chocolate **
Whenever I begin the long road of trying to lose some weight one of the main things I feel I need to leave out is chocolate. This is a bit of a problem for me as I love chocolate. Any kind, any flavour, you name it and I'll eat it. The thing with chocolate is the way it melts in the mouth and leaves a tingle on the tongue. Oh, it's enough to put a smile on my face! I must say I do love most varieties of chocolate and you will rarely see me turn my nose up at anything sweet, but my favourite mouth watering sweet treat is Cadburys Dairy Milk. It is pure, milky, velvety, sweet indulgence. But it doesn't do to be eating this when I want to lose the pounds. A normal size bar (49g) of Dairy Milk chocolate has 255 Calories and a whopping 14.6g of fat!!!!! All in that one little bar! So this definitely has to be off the shopping list. 100%, most definitely this is not going anywhere near my lips.... Well... that is until I found these little beauties...Cadbury Thins
** Cadburys The Famous Bigwig **
In 1824 John Cadbury who was a young Quaker opened his first shop in Birmingham. He actually started as a greengrocer and somehow ended up selling drinking chocolate! Such a simple start, but since then Cadburys has been has linked with chocolate. Probably one of the first brand names that come to mind when you think of a sweet treat. The most famous product of the Cadburys Empire is the Dairy milk bar which first launched in 1905 and since 1913 has been the brand leader for entire chocolate world... oh and my world too!
** Cadbury Thins **
Well, these little delights look exactly the same as the normal Dairy Milk bars, except they are half as thick. (Hence the THIN name). The point of this chocolate is to taste the same on the lips but NOT spend a lifetime on the hips. Because it is half the size of a normal bar it also holds less then half the amount of calories. 100 calories and 8g of fat. A big difference to the full size bar!
So I know what you're thinking.... Hmmmm it has to be lacking in something! Well not really. When you first unwrap the packaging the bar looks almost the same as the old Cadbury Animal Bars. (If you remember them, they were always in selection boxes at Christmas, very thin, square bars aimed at children, but I haven't seen them in years!). The thin bar has four large flat squares for you to enjoy and it looks quite delicate. When you pull a bit off it makes a fairly loud snap sound, which shows you just how thin the bars are.
Now, to be honest it doesn't give me the same indulgent feeling as it does not swirl my mouth around with chocolate. But it does make you take your time a little more and the slower you eat it, the more it melts and it does give you a little mouth watering experience. It still has its creamy taste which is from the fresh natural milk that Cadburys use and I'm glad that they haven't subsidised it for powered milk in the thin version.
The thin bars are definitely enough to give you a chocolate kick and in an odd way make you take your time a little more and enjoy the chocolate taste rather the gobbling it up all at once. To some degree, you could just buy a normal bar and limit the amount that you eat. Maybe a couple of squares a day. But unfortunately I don't have the willpower so these thin bars are perfect for me!
** Packaging **
The packaging is almost identical to that of the original dairy milk bar with the famous purple and white silky packaging. On the front of this bar the Dairy Milk logo has been replaced with an elegant THIN logo and there is a little bright blue square in the corner advertising the 100 Calories feature. So you can't really miss them to be honest.
** The frustrating Part **
I can't find them anywhere! As a one off I found these in Pound land for a box of 6 they were £1. (Yes they were in date and no I don't know why they were so cheap! Oh and they were also in English!). As you can imagine I did stock up and I bought 3 packets. I know it sounds greedy but they were a bargain! Since they have run out of stock which was very quickly, I can not find them in any supermarket at all. So, if anyone does find these on sale please let me know! ;-)
** All In ALL **
When I bought these they were a bargain! But regardless of that the taste is the same as the normal Cadbury Dairy Milk Bar but with a little less guilt attached!
