Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Melts Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Melts
Posted: 14:40 Sun 01-Oct-2006. Price: 1.19/ 100g box of 8. Location: Newsagent in Leeds. Sub-flavours: "Velvety" Milk, "Deliciously" Dark, "Heavenly" Praline. Nutritional unusualness: Each bar contains cocoa mass, vegetable oil, 6.5% of your "guideline daily amount" of sugars, 14.4% of saturated fat.
"Phillerena" reports: These were in a much smaller box than I imagined, and a little pricey. Basically they are individually wrapped chunks of Dairy Milk with soft centres. This dark chocolate one has a nice rich chocolatey taste, but nothing near as good as the new dark choc Lindors. Overall I thought they were nice, but overpriced. I can't honestly see myself buying them again.

...I thought these were like an upmarket version of those Dairy Milk Miniatures that go in the plastic chocolate machine - though not to be confused with the new Dairy Milk Special Variety box that "Magnetic Ham Sandwich" mailed me about recently. And nor was "Phillerena" satisfied with the Terry's Waifa obtained for 35p from the (same?) Leeds Newsagent, observing: I'm not sure if this is new or not but I've never seen it before. It's a Terry's Waifa in "chunky" format (like KitKat Chunky). It tastes OK, but the wafer is too light and airy for my liking (as opposed to the crunchy wafer in KitKats) and the chocolate tastes a little bland and is too thin. I wouldn't buy this over KitKat Chunky.

Comment: i've just seen milk chocolate after eights! they come in a blue box. i didn't buy them because i suspect they will be sickly... (in hindsight was that what was wrong with the orange after eights - milk chocolate?)

Comment: I think the Melts taste gorgeous (similar to the Roses Truffles that have been releases recently too) - but possibly overpriced. The same problem Snaps has.

Comment: Irish Cream After Eights were vile. The lemon ones weren't much better.

Comment: I never tried the Irish Cream After Eights (the big Nestle Irish Cream experiment wasn't a success, was it?(, but the Lemon ones are one of the few chocolates that nearly made me vomit. They were disgusting.

I will hunt out the milk chocolate ones though.

Comment: I've seen them in Nottingham's Wilkinson's - they always have slightly more unusual chocolate.

Comment: The Irish Cream after eights were so bad my family managed to leave half a box to throw away, first half only eaten as we couldn't believe how bad they were :D

Comment: Saw this out quite some time in London's Sainsbury's. They look delicious and did want to try. But I never had luck with Cadbury's chocolates (too sweet, too milky, no cocoa taste) .....

Comment: My local newsgent has the waifa, I was overjoyed. Having not had a kitkat chunky in over 4 years (due to the boycott) I had really been missing them. This is a more than adequate replacement. 67651 0 14
