Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Variety "Great To Share" Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Variety "Great To Share"
Posted: 21:14 Tue 06-Sep-2005. Location: Southampton, Tesco. Sub-flavours: Dairy Milk, Variety, Crunchie.
"choccieman" reports: Bravo Cadbury, in the contest of most unimaginative way to flog a chocolate brand this surely has to be the winner. You can see the office now: "Ooh those Kit Kat Kubes seem to be selling well, what can we do? How about ickle Dairy Milk chunks...?" Dear oh dear oh dear. Anyway I've only tried the variety box that contains little chunks (individually wrapped mind, to keep the weight up) of Dairy Milk, Hazelnut, Fruit and nut, Turkish, Mint and Orange crisp (I think that's all of them). Yeah, they taste just as they should (and it has to be said that there is reasonable variety of flavour with these) but you can't help thinking it'd be much more satisfying (and probably cheaper by the gramme) to just buy a bunch of normal size Dairy Milk bars, smash 'em up and stick 'em in a box; or buy a box of Heroes. To continue their marvelous streak of imagination I notice you can now get Dairy Milk Wafer in a big bar (previously only in small bars) and Orange Crisp and Turkish in little bars (previously only in big bars). Come on Cadbury how about something new?

..."choccieman" chokes back his disappointment over these, though sadly neglects to mention how they differ from those Dairy Milk Miniatures that go in the "Chocolate Machine Money Box" which, astonishingly, you can still get from Argos. Still, as if in answer to "choccieman's" plea, "Magnetic Ham Sandwich" claims to have spotted some Honey and Almond Cadbury chocolate in Woolworth's last Saturday, "but only in the big 1.24 bars".

Comment: i thought these were okay. but very expensive for what you get (fancy packaging, see?). they seem to be really pushing turkish delight (now in small bars too). is it really that popular? i took some over to the states and my aunt accused me of trying to poison her with nail polish remover. those americans!

Comment: Turkish delight dairy milk is boring, nothing beats Fry's.

I read in the Grocer that the Almond & Honey Dairy Milk is being launched soon, only in big bars to start with. I imagine smaller bars shall follow if it's a success.

Comment: I too have also seen the Honey and Almond Dairy Milk in Woolworths. I do wonder what is going to turn up in Dairy Milk next, cheese and pineapple perhaps? Anyway always good to see more chocolate with almonds.

Comment: i think its a great idea! People may say that it is more satisfying if you just buy the normal sized bars and smash them up but then you have to think about how this is better in quite a few ways. Its healthier as it is for sharing so you won't get to eat as many and its just fun, you can't balme Cadbury for bringing out htis product it was bound to happen sometime. Plus there is no reson to have a go at this product as its just like Heroes. You could cut those chocolates into pieces and stuff them into a box but then you don't see anyone complaining about that. But i do agree that Cadbury could think a bit more about the prices and why the hell have they put Turkish Delight in there with the best???? 52538 0 51

Comment: I loved the Almond and Honey bars, the best product Cadbury's put out in the last decade. Unfortunately, I haven't seen them since Spring 2006, and am eating the last one in my possession now. Shame. I really wish Cadbury's would bring thenm back!
