If someone offers you chocolate to review - why would you ever say no? Cadbury's asked if we were interested in trying their new Dairy Milk Marvellous Mix-Ups and (for the kids you understand) I said yes.
My favourite thing about all of this, even better than the gorgeous bright wrappers, is that the whole lot is vegetarian. Yep - safe for veggies. My 3 veggie kids can eat their fair share.
The first we tried are the Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Mix-Ups With Maynards. They were a hit. The large buttons are caramel filled, which is gorgeous, but most were squished and so you got sticky fingers. It was worth it though. The mini-~Fudge were a really nice touch.
Next Marvellous Mix-Ups With OREO. Again, a definite hit. These looked less appealing because the OREOs leave dust all over everything, but it doesn't affect eating. I didn't like these as much as the Maynards, but at least 3 of the children preferred them. Favourite part was the pebbles - they were fought over.
Last, but not least, the Marvellous Creations Cadbury Dairy Milk Banana Caramel Crisp.
This was really much nicer than I even expected. I like banana, so I was expecting to like it, but thought it would be banana flavoured chocolate. Actually it's chocolate with crispy bits, soft caramel pieces and banana sweets - they taste like the soft chewy bananas you get in a 10p mix, and it's lovely. A firm hit.
All of the packaging is resealable with those little stickers, and the chocolate bar wrapper is pull apart - it's really handy and stops little bits of rubbish and litter.
We're impressed and all of these were a hit all round. Really tasty and delicious. The Marvellous Mix-Ups retail at around £2.00 a bag, and the Marvellous Creations bars are around £2.50 (including from Cadbury's website). Prices vary - the most expensive I've seen today is £3.69, so be careful where you shop.
