Another new offering from Cadbury here – part of their “Bags Of Stuff That Are Way Too Big For One Person But Like That’s Going To Stop Me Trying” range, I think.
This 175g bag contains a large number of Dairy Milk Buttons, each filled with a small amount of Caramel. I’m not sure why they went for the ‘Nibbles’ name. They’re quite clearly Buttons and they could have gone for a record-breaking three-brand-name crossover “Cabury Dairy Milk With Caramel Buttons” monicker if only they’d thought about it.
Like their siblings – Clusters and Raisins – these need to be classed as snack food rather than anything more. For one thing, they’re made with Dairy Milk, complete with that wonderful vegetable fat, so they don’t really count as proper chocolate anyway.
But as snack foods go, they’re pretty moreish. Despite being incredibly sweet, there’s no way you could just eat one of these. Particularly when you get 83,342 of them in a single packet. (That’s just a rough estimate.)
As we mentioned way back in 2006, there’s something about the button shape that just makes chocolate taste better – even Dairy Milk. And there’s just enough caramel filling to get a bit of flavour without drowning in it. But the same stuff in a Creme Egg sized package and it’s just sickly.
As is so often the case with Cadbury products, I don’t particularly like them, but once I start eating them, it’s very difficult to stop. It’s not as though I can hide the bag, because I’ve tried that before and I know all my secret hiding places now. So I’ll leave you with a simple warning. Buy them at your own risk and never eat them alone.
