Ah, Cadbury Heroes. Miniature versions of everyone’s Cadbury favourites. Perfect for not-sharing around Christmas time. And at least thirteen times better than the TV show of the same name.
If you’ve never seen Cadbury Heroes, here’s what you get in the box:
*pause for breath*
And yes, with the exception of Dairy Milk Whole Nut, we’ve reviewed the full sized versions of all the Cadbury Heroes. Cool.
All the chocolates in Heroes are pretty much the same as their full sized counterparts, with the exception of Crunchie, which contains small pieces of honeycomb in milk chocolate, resulting in more chocolate and less crunch, and Whole Nut, which consists of a single Hazelnut in Dairy Milk.
As is often the case with these kind of mixes, you can always tell which ones people like and don’t like by looking in the box when they’re half gone. You may not realise it while you’re actually eating, but subconsciously you’ll always pick out your favourites first.
In my case, the Fudge and Caramel Heroes disappered first and I was left with all the solid Dairy Milk and Dairy Milk Whole nut chocs. There’s something incredibly cute about a tiny bar of Dairy Milk, but I find them just a little dull as ‘sweets’.
Personally, I’d like to see the Whole Nut in particular replaced with something a little more interesting from the Cadbury range… Starbar maybe?
All in all though, I love Heroes. They’re cheap, fun and made for sharing over Christmas. But it must be noted that Mars make a very similar product with miniature versions of their top selling chocs called Celebrations… so I guess I’ll just have to go out and buy a box to compare them. Oh it’s a hard life.
