Cadbury Heroes

Cadbury Heroes

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*

Twirl, Dairy Milk, Dairy Milk Whole Nut, Dairy Milk with Caramel, Time Out, Fudge, Dream, Picnic and Crunchie.

*phew*

And yes, with the exception of Dairy Milk Whole Nut, we’ve reviewed the full sized versions of all the Cadbury Heroes. Cool.

Cadbury Heroes

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.

    I got given a box of these just last week! Only here they are called “Favourites”, and the selection is a little different. Flake instead of Twirl, no Fudge or whole nut because we don’t have those full size bars here. It includes Cherry Ripe, which is pretty much the only way to get a Cherry Ripe in NZ. Also the crunchies are proper crunchie bars (in miniture of course), rather than what you described. Also – I always eat the ones I like least first, and save my favourites for last!

    I wrote this 3 years ago, and as much as they seem to have changed, I don’t think I can bring myself to buy another box to try them…

    Heroes used to be great. Now they are rubbish. Used to get 9 decent chocolates. Now only 6 – and eclairs! WTF

    Sort it Cadbury. Would have happened is Cadbury stayed British.
