Cadbury Snow Bites

The Halloween costumes are gone and the supermarket shelves have been filled with brightly coloured tat, which can only mean one thing. Christmas is right around the corner!

This little bag was seen hiding in the “Edible Brightly Coloured Tat” aisle of my local Tesco and being the season of goodwill, I thought it only fair that I gave it a home.

“Snow Bites” are really “snow balls”. They are very simple little things – marble-sized balls of solid milk chocolate (with lovely added vegetable fat), coated in a crisp white sugar shell and rolled in icing sugar.

Think of them as the result of a late night encounter between a bag of Maltesers and a tube of Smarties in a Tate & Lyle factory.

So what we have then is a already sweet Cadbury milk chocolate, coated in sugar then rolled in more sugar. They must be awful, right…?

Wrong!

These little things are seriously addictive. They taste very similar to Smarties, but with much more chocolate in each one, they’re incredibly addictive. Yes, they’re sweet, but they’re also completely unputdownable.

They’re also rather cute to look at, so I guess they would make fun Christmas cake decorations, or just put a few bags out into bowls for guests at your party.

They really aren’t anything special at all, but I just can’t stop eating them. Luckily, there’s a generous 100g in each bag, so I’ve still got some left….. er… oh. They’ve gone.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t they just a Christmas version of Mini Eggs?

    I guess you could think of them like that – but these are smaller than mini eggs and spherical. And white. And rolled in loose icing sugar.

  3. I’d have loved to eat em but, looks like lizard eggs lol

    Ha… we don’t tend to have that many lizards in my part of London, so I hadn’t considered that. :)

  5. Yum. I love mini eggs.
    I haven’t seen these before. I’ll have to be on the look out.

    I’d say they’re more like cadbury shots.

    I’ve never seen Cadbury Shots, but I think you might be right!

  8. These look yummy and perfect for the season!

    Cadbury shots, tried both and theyre pretty much the same, except these have Icing sugar which makes them ten times more addictive.

    Dom: if you liked these I would certainly suggest looking into Cadbury shots!
    Another awesome reveiw!!
