The Easter bunny isnt supposed to be making his official visit until tommorow but I was a lucky boy and was the reciever of a Smarties Easter Egg today from a kind relative.
Included in this Easter Egg pack were the standard chocolate egg that is included with all Cadburys Eggs this Easter and also two hexatube packs of Nestle Smarties. Tossing the chocolate egg to the side (no time for generic chocolate eggs this year round people!) I opened my first tube of Smarties for a good ten years :) smell??...distinctly lacking - no aroma worth mentioning aside from a slightly sweet smell.
One quick note is that the packaging claims that there is no artifical colourings or flavors...honestly thats a tad puzzling considering the colours these come in!? The blue colour is back!? does anyone care lol not me. Despite the meaningless package claim theres no doubting that they look great, natraul - no? appertising - kinda...intresting and different - definately.
Anyone whose been reading Chocolate Mission thus far will know that sugary shelled products havent been amongst the most highgly rated. I generally find them very artifical tasting (they genereally are!) and many of these products have been too dominated by these overpowering sweet flavours - not a good omen for a product that describes itself as 'milk chocolate in a crisp sugar shell'.
Smarties come in seven colours - all of which are the same in taste with the orange colour aside which has a slight orangey twang to it. Plently of nostalgic feelings quickly filled me as I emptied the contents of one the hexatubes into a bowl - the colours look amazing and although you know they all generally taste the same you cant help but match up your favourite colours and pick out the orange ones - great fun :D
After finally finishing fiddling around playing around matching up the colours (oh come on I cant be the only one) I finally got round to eating them :) Although slightly wary of the sugary shells I really quite enjoyed their presence in the product. The shells are far thinner than their M&M counterparts but still added a nice crispy bite to the product. Their thiness meant that they did not dominate the flavour and the milk chocolate quickly presented itself to the tastebuds and established itself as the dominant ingredient.
Chocolatewise Smarties are rather indifferent, their small size nature meant that whilst the chocolate is not overpowered its not a particularly strong flavour - that being said the blend of the shells and chocolate is overly pleasent and a single tube (38g) is a more than adequete serving size.
The orange Smarties although not plentiful in number (I only got two in a whole pack grrr!) are pleasent and the orange taste is a nice element to throw into the mix - why arent there tubes with just Orange smarties!? I guess this must have been done in some Limited edition capacity already??
Overall theres no doubting Smarties look great in appearance and im sure they probably bring back tons of great childhood memories for many a person. This aside though Smarties are a product that are never going to win any prizes in terms of taste. They are one of those products that are never going to offer an overly differential flavour extravaganza but if its a great looking nostalgic bringing chocolate experience your after, you can go little wrong with Smarties.

For those of you who were lucky enough to be viewing the site the other day when I posted up a link for a free Thorntons Easter egg and signed up for one you may want to read on as your going to enjoy reading this.
Before stumbling across the Thorntons offer the other day I had already purchased a few of these from my local shop for the grand total of 59p each; I couldnt resist as these looked great in their snazzy foil wrappers.
This Thorntons egg seemed almost identical in size to the Cadburys Eggs...dont hold me to this precisely but to me it seemed neither bigger or smaller. Unwrapping the egg from its foil wrapper I was immediately greeted with a nutty praline smell; it smelt absolutely stunning and it sort of brought a sense that this product was quite fresh and hadnt been lieing around a warehouse for months like maybe some of the other Easter products I have reviewed.
The egg is formed of two layers, a thick shell of milk chocolate with chopped nuts thrown in surrounding a plentiful centre of praline truffle.
The shell was glorious in taste - the chocolate was smooth and very creamy; the added chopped nuts to the mix was a pleasent suprise I wasnt expecting it added a slight crunch to the smoothness and in terms of flavour just a small subtle hint of nut. The Centre was equally as tasty - it had a full flavoured nuttyness to it however avoided being overpowering; very nice indeed. In texture it was firm yet velvety and had a real luxurious feel to it. As the truffle filling filled most of the egg there was no problem in proportioning and each mouthful was a nice balance of shell and truffle filling.
Overall if you were lucky enough to have signed up for a free on of these (which im guessing will be delivered to us all after Easter) your in for a real treat. This is an extremely tasty egg and definately an option worth considering if your neither a fan of the Cadburys or Mars eggs this Easter. Good work from the master of Choclatiering ;) It will be great to hear all your thoughts on it when yours come through the post.

Anyone who had any form of childhood must have come across a Kinder Suprise at some point. For those of you that missed out altogether I can tell you that this chocolate egg is not only avalible at Easter but all year round. This is not your average chocolate egg..oh no...heres the hook...inside this hollow 20g treat lies a self assembly toy which will entertain anyone under the age of 5 for all a matter of minutes.
The egg is formed of two very thin layers, one of milk chocolate (outer layer as seen above) and one lighter coloured inside layer that is decribed as 'milk flavoured'.
As described above the egg is particularly thin and not in anyway substantial enough to cure any sort of hunger; because of this relatve thinness it means the egg offers very little in terms of texture and despite the smooth nature of the chocolate its particularly unexciting in terms of an eating experience.
Tastewise there really isnt much to shout about. Theres no actual distinguishable taste difference between the two layers which is overly worrying considering the differences in colour. The taste is sweet in flavour and lacks any sort of depth or distinguishable aspect.
Overall this really is a product that should be well left alone unless your under the age of ten years old. I can see why this is such a popular product with kids...I mean why wouldnt it be...its a toy and chocolate...sadly for those of us who have passed these precious years its best we stay we clear.

Aside from your Cadburys offerings this is pretty much the most readily avalible mini egg on the market this Easter.
This delightful little offering promised the prospect of a Mars bar all encompassed in one nice seasonal egg - this had all the promisings of being a real challenger for the creme egg crown.
The egg in size is slightly smaller than the Cadburys offerings this easter coming in at a pretty standard 33g. I am told this is slightly smaller than last years which used to at least be the equivalent size of the Cadburys Eggs.
I chilled the egg again slightly hoping that the caramel would solidify somewhat and not make a mess when I was eating it; after removing from the fridge and peeling off the nice looking foil I was pleased to be hit with a sweet smelling chocolatey caramel aroma - a good start. One thing I must again mention is the same familiar patterned oval shapes etched into the egg...exactly the same as the Cadburys egg..surely these eggs cant all be being producded in the same place!!?...someone care to clear this up?
Biting into the egg I was met with a whole host of different layers of filling. The Chocolate being from the fridge was crunchy and a equally delicous to the creamy chocolate that is synonomous with the original Mars bar...ok granted its not the greatest chocolate in the world but it is rather pleasent to say the least. The next flavour that was evident was the caramel - even though the egg was slightly chilled it wa still suprisingly runny and left a long trail coming from the egg with my initial bite...ohh the mess :D....the mess is insignificant though as the taste more than makes up for it smooth and full of flavour DE-LISH!
The last component of the egg is the nougat. The nougat found in this egg is brilliantly managed in both proportion and taste. It occupied one half of the inside of the egg . Although this meant it wasnt best spread it was correct in measure. The texture was far less chewy than the nougat found in the original Mars bars and was much smoother; I must say that I preffered this texture to the one found in the original bar as it meant it dominated the other flavours less.
Overall the only letdown with this bar is the unfortunate size change it has undergone. Why Mars have made the egg smaller I do not know- rather puzzling to say the least. In terms of taste this is definately on the same level as the Cadburys Creme Egg, its combination of good tasting chocolate, chewy caramel and smoother than normal nougat makes for a delicous balance of flavours. If it wernt for the fact I was left wanting another straight away I would rate this at least on the same level as the Creme egg; I would reccomend picking up some of these this Easter especially if your a fan of Mars bars.

Having previously reviewed the Cadburys Curly Wurly Squrleys you may be asking yourself why I would write a review on the Curly Wurly...well they are packaged and presented differenly so why not :D
No suprise that in taste at least there is absolutely no discrepencies between the two products - I would even hazard a guess that the Curly Wurly Squrleys are off cuts of the Curly Wurly as they have absoluely no different in formula whatsoever - chewy caramel encased in Dairy Milk Chocolate...fair enough.
The only actual tangible differences in the two products are they way they are presented. The Curly Wurly is in a bar form of 26g whilst a bag of 'CWS' offers you are far more hunger fufilling 46g in small bite sized chunks. Personally I prefer the bar form and its certainly fun seeing how far you can stretch the caramel after each bite (come on I cant be the only one to do this!!).
Overall im left with the sense that theres no real need for both of these products to be on the market - and thats not even considering the Cadburys Chomp which is exactly the same product in a more boring shaped bar. In terms of flavours the Curly Wurly/Squrley is pleasent and whilst not being the most innovative or exciting is distinctive enough to merit some form of existance, just not in two different forms! A halfway house of a 40g bar of this would be great! If your after a fun looking, ok tasting snack you cant really go wrong - just dont expect this to be more than that.

Im yet to find a better white chocolate than Milkybar, so given the opportunity to review this Easters Milkybar egg offering from Neslte I was hardly going to be turning it down.
The egg is part of Neslte's unique 'Shaker' range which sees the traditional creme like filling found in most mini Easter products replaced with mini flavoured solid pieces - in this instance white chocoate flavoured rice puffs. The name is obviously dervied from the rattling noise that these small pieces cause as they shaken agaisnt the solid chocolate shell.
The egg had a sweet smelling vanilla like flavour typically found in most Milkybar products. I decided to eat this particular product by biting off the top of the egg empyting the contents and eating the rest of the shell whislt nibbling away at the rice pieces.
Tastewise this egg was delicous, The shell was thick and thoroughly enjoyable. The change of format did not have a profound change in the taste and it was much the same sweet vanilla type flavour I found with the Milkybar Chunky I reviewed in January. The puffed rice particles also added a nice texture to the mix, they were similar to rice crispies in density but had far more flavour and subsequently added a nice variaton in texture to the thick dense shell.
Overall this was a nice concept that was executed well by Nestle. Milkybar is a very popular product and it would have been all too easy to just release a Milkybar egg with some form of white chocolate creme, Nestle have introducded a new concept to the egg market by going agaisnt the grain and bringing something new to the table with the 'Shaker' concept. Tastewise your never going to go wrong withMilkybar and if your after something a little different this Easter I would recommend you give this a try.

Previously produced by Duncans these have been manafactured since 1910 - thats one hell of a history; surely this must mean this product is something special!? Walnut Whips have come in many different flavours over the years, it was to my great suprise I learnt that this vanilla flavour is currently the only variant in production.
The build of the Walnut Whip is unique yet simple: a very light fluffy whipped centre is encased in a cone shaped milk chocolate shell - topped off with a single walnut. Despite its rich heritage this actually came in a rather modern snazzy blue foil wrapper - personally I think they are missing a trick here and more a more traditional wrapper would suite the product more.
Overall I cannot understand how this product has survived so long with other quality products readily available on the market. The Nestle website claims that a Walnut Whip in the UK is eaten every two minutes which is really quite remarkable considering I have had one and would probably never consider buying one again. This dosent come with a recommendation from the Chocolate Mission though I guess on balance I have had worse.

Easter is fast approaching and todays offering from Nestle comes in the form of a spin off from the Nestle Heaven range.
Im not too familiar with the range but to my knowledge it is based around chocolate truffles which are avalible in bars and of course packs of individual truffles. This egg is billed as a 'Dark chocolate shell with a rich dark truffle centre'..sounds good in theory.
In size the egg was significantly smaller than the Cadburys/Galaxy eggs I have reviewed over the last couple of days weighing in at a rather small 28g. In design the egg had no pattern work at all and to my suprise rather easily straight down the centre of the egg from top to bottom with very little force - it was more than apparent that this egg is built fusing two halfs together rather than a egg shell filled -despite its relative unattractivness this did have its advantages though. A problem with the previously reviewed eggs was that the filling inside was ill proportioned and sunk to one end of the egg; this was not the case with this Black Heaven egg as the filling was half filled in one side and half in the other, this ensured a perfect balance of filling and shell with every bite.
Unfortunately despite its slightly fortunate design success its taste was rather disappointing. Despite the differences in texture in the shell and centre (one being crunchy and the other slightly smooth) there was no distinctive change in taste. The Dark chocolate was altogether rather sweet and sugary and did not have the slight bitterness you would expect and want from an egg offering a dark alternative to the rest of the market. This sweet taste although not overly disatisfying came across quite monotomous and paled in comparison to other Dark chocolate offerings I have had of late.
Overall the taste of this egg was ultimately disappointing in due to its small size really unfufilling. Although Nestle seemed to have solved the problem of the ill proportioned filling, this has been at cost to not only the asthetic appeal of the egg but also to the whole eating experience itself. The difficulty of eating the creme egg and equivalents is actually half the fun of the egg format itself - taking this away does indeed proportion the feeling and cause less mess but in all it does take something away from the fun of this format. The flavour with this egg was also quite monotomous and unless your a fan of the Nestle Heaven range I generally reccommend you look elsewhere this Easter - not overly disatisfying, just I think there's better out there.

Not wanting to deviate from my recent habit, I again indulged in another mid afternoon treat; this time I turned my attention to across the pond and helped myself to this little imported snack from the US - the 3 Musketeers with Mint and Dark Chocolate.
The 3 Musketeers with Mint came in a 35g serving split into two familiar shaped bars as shown above. The bar is relatively different to the original 3 Musketeers bar which I reviewed a few weeks back - not only in size but in build aswell.
The Milk chocolate coating has been replaced with a far darker more bitter Dark Chocolate alternative, its flavour was strong yet avoided being overpowering and definately suited the bar more due to charateristics of the centre im about to describe.
The centre of mint flavoured nougat retained the whippy soft texture of the original 3 Musketeers yet was certainly different in flavour. The mint flavour is an intresting concept and is certainly original interms of Im currently unaware of any other mint flavoured soft nougat bars on the market at present. Not only was the flavour original but it was actually quite refreshing and was sweet enough to finely balance agaisnt the slight bitterness of the chocolate. The mint flavour also provided a fantastic smell upon opening the bar and certainly gave a clear indication of what to expect interms of the taste.
Overall if your a fan of mint chocolate like I am, you can go very little wrong with this offering form Mars. The only slightly puzzling nature of the bar is natrually its size; it is only half the size of the original 3 Musketeers and if you are wanting something more substantial than just a tasty light bite you will be left disappointed (and hungry lol!). This small grumble aside this is one heck of a tasty bar and is a perfect cure for the mid afternoon/morning munchies. This bar comes highly reccommended.

The Easter Etravaganza continues with the egg version of Galaxy Caramel. The first thing that struck me about this egg was the pattern that was etched into the side of the egg - it was absolutely identical to the pattern on the Dairy Milk with Caramel egg, quite puzzling considering the obvious different manufactures - hmmm puzzling can anyone shed any light on this?
The similarities didn't end there, as this Galaxy egg was surprisingly exactly the same size and weight of its Cadburys equivalent. I ate the egg exactly the same method as the previously reviewed eggs - chilled, hollowed out and then the shell. The aroma of the egg was glorious and had the same sweet smell that was instantly recognisable from the ever so brilliant Galaxy Caramel bar (that currently jointly leads the Chocolate Mission table!!).
Biting into the egg it was quickly apparent that the caramel had become far thicker due to its chilled nature. It was actually rather solid and had sunk right to the bottom of the egg meaning that the top third was completely chocolate. It was also quite apparent that the amount of caramel in this egg was significantly less than in the Dairy Milk product. I couldn't help but feel a little let down by this - and that disappointment was compounded even more after eating it. Of course the egg tasted absolutely glorious - the chocolate was full of all Galaxy goodness and the caramel was smooth and full of flavour - spectacular and I can fault it little in this department. Unfortunately the egg also suffered from the same proportioning problems as the Dairy Milk with Caramel egg. The caramel sunk to one end of the egg meaning that one end had significantly more filling than the other - this wasn't unexpected but it still effected the overall product quality.
Overall there is no doubt this is one tasty egg that will certainly be enjoyed by who ever is lucky enough to indulge in one (or more :D) over Easter. Similarly to the Cadburys equivalent, in comparison with the bar format it is also available in, it does fall short as the proportioning is imbalanced due to its egg shape and its hunger fulfilment potential is not as great because of its size. The Cadburys Creme egg is still leading the way in the Easter Mission, but if you after a tasty caramel easter treat you can go little wrong with this Galaxy offering.

Continuing my trend of having a tasty small treat mid afternoon, today my attention when browsing the confectionary fixture was grabbed by the delightful looking Milky Way Crispy Rolls.
A 25g pack contains two 'milk chocolate covered wafer biscuit fingers with a lightly whipped filling'. Upon picking up the packet I was suprised at how light they felt, I was careful not to let go of it for fear of them floating away - they are really that light!
Opening the packet I was greeted by two long sticks that looked quite reasonable asthetically but offered very little in any sort of aroma. One thing that was quickly noticeable was the rate at which the chocolate melted on my fingers as i handled the sticks....it literally took seconds; believe me I was in no warm environment - the office was freezing!
Biting into the sticks provided a mix of textures, the crunchy wafer provided a nice crunch and the whipped centre provided a nice smooth creme too the mix. The flavour department is where this product really struggles though. None of the elements really have a strong flavour - especially the whipped centre. The strongest flavour comes from the wafer and in all honesty it offers very little more than your average supermarket own brand ice cream cone (flavourless!!). The chocolate fails to have any impact on the tastebuds and offers little more than a greasy coating.
Overall this is a product that I would reccomend you avoid. The product concept itself is not a bad one - just the execution of it is poor. The product is really rather tasteless and lacks any potential of relieving any sort of hunger or chocolate urge due to its lightweight flavourless constituants. Unless your really curious I very much urge you to leave well alone.

***UPDATE*** 18.03.2010 ***
Cin over at Foodstufffinds has recently been investigating in to a potential recipe change for Cadbury Mini Eggs (See HERE). To help her out I went and bought a pack myself, and I have to say I agree with her findings.
My own observations are that Cadbury have somehow managed to make these taste even sweeter than before. I think that this is because the shells are even thicker than they used to be, making them even more dominant flavour wise. As you can tell from my review below I am no Mini Egg lover so I could well be wrong here!?
What do you guys think?? Have you noticed any differences?

Similar to the famous Creme Egg, these are another seasonal Caburys product that only make an appearance around Easter time - good thing I picked some up today then.
Cadburys Mini Eggs are small sized solid chocolate eggs encased in a thin sugary shell. They look absolutely stunning and the colours as you can see above are very authentic and make them look particulalry individual.
Aswell as the sugary shells making them look impressive, they also add a nice crunch to the product and this plays off well against the solid chocolate. The solid chocolate centres were standard Cadbury quality, and offered the same sweet, creamy tasting goodness you get with all Cadburys Chocolate products.
Unfortunately despite the sugar shells really being the unique point of the product, they also brought about the products greatest problem. I found that after about ten mini eggs the taste of the sugary shells became more and more dominant. I found these Mini Eggs extremely sweet tasting, and at times overpowered the chocolate completely just leaving me with a very artificial sugar taste in my mouth.
Overall these are a pleasant product in moderation, but I find the taste quickly becomes monotonous and quite sickly. I would say these would be fine to have round the house/work place to enjoy when you fancy the odd nibble, but I cannot recommend these as being a 'great chocolate product'. I think that despite their strong roots with being seen as a classic Easter product there are better alternatives out there to be enjoyed this holiday season.

The Easter Extravaganza 2008 continues and today I indulged in Chocolate Missions current leader the Cadburys Dairy Milk with Caramel ... this time though in egg form.
The Caramel egg is exactly the same build as yesterdays Creme egg but obviously with the Creme Fondant centre replaced with a massive (and I mean massive) helping of Cadburys Caramel. The outer shell was equally as thick as the Creme egg and it looked exactly the same in appearance and size.
Again I let this egg chill for a good few hours in the fridge before I indulged; this made sure the caramel was lovely and firm when it came to eating and avoided any sticky mess that would probably occur if the centre was less viscous.
Upon opening the egg I got that same delightful sweet caramel smell that I got when opening the bar form...I cant tell you how much I was looking forward to this. I ate this egg in a similar method to how I ate yesterdays creme egg. I removed top of the egg and then ate away some of the centre - leaving a thin coating round the the rest of the chocolate before eating away at the shell. Taste wise no surprise this was simply amazing. The caramel was thick, gooey and ever so sweet - of course the chocolate was delightful as ever and its chilled nature gave it that extra cracking sensation which complimented the soft smooth caramel so well. Both of the flavours combined meant it was a truly indulgent experience that left me with a big smile on my face :D truly delicious.
Overall I can safely say this is going to be one of the better Easter products on the market - it was divine in both it's flavours and textures. The only thing that I was left pondering after eating it though was whether it benefited from being in the egg format - personally I think not. When eating the bar the sheer beauty of it was the proportion of chocolate and caramel were so brilliantly proportioned each bite that you got the correct amount of each time. This isn't quite the case here as the caramel is obviously just placed in the centre meaning that its nearly impossible to eat it at the same rate as the chocolate shell. Another slight issue with the egg format in comparison to the bar is that you obviously get less - 38g vs 50g!! booooo! I would rate this egg slightly less than the Creme egg for the sole reason that I believe the Creme egg filling flavour works better in this format (egg). Still if your a caramel lover you can go little wrong with this splendid helping from Cadburys. Bravo again Cadbury!

Two reviews in a day again?!! Uh oh this isnt getting to be a good habit :D Similar to yesterday the munchies hit me mid afternoon and I needed a sweet little snack...cue the Cadburys Fudge bar.
Its size and shape its very similar to the chomp I reviewed yesterday. The bar weighs a meager 25g and comes in the form of a long thin smooth bar, about the same size as a Chomp but a little thicker.
The bar has a centre of soft fudge coated in a very thin layer of Cadburys Dairy Milk and came in a nice looking orange and purple wrapper.
Despite putting the bar in the fridge for a good hour the bar was still suprising soft when I came to eat it - this bar in texture was certainly alot less chewy that the Chomp bar I reviewed yesterday and the fudge centre offered very little resistance against my bite.
Taste wise the fudge is very sweet - this is not surprising obviously with it being fudge and mostly made of sugar but what I'm trying to get at is that it didn't have a particularly distinct creamy fudge taste that you might wish. The chocolate layer is alot thinner than in comparison with the Chomp and for this reason you don't really get the Dairy Milk taste come through; the sugary fudge is certainly the dominant flavour.
Overall this again did a job in providing a nice snack sized treat between meals, but it lacked the fulfilling feeling you want to get from a chocolate bar. In terms of how it could be improved I would suggest Cadburys enlarge the size of the bar by adding far more Dairy Milk Chocolate..I think a thickish layer of hard chocolate against the soft fudge layer could be a real winner if proportioned correctly.

What a place to kick off 'Jim's Easter Mission 2008' than with the most famous symbolic Easter chocolate in the universe - the Cadbury Creme Egg.
For those of you that are unaware of what one is (where have you been lol!!!) the product is in size the same as a standard meduim sized egg and is formed of a generous helping of creme fondant in the centre of a thick Cadbury Dairy Milk shell.
The egg comes in a very nice looking thing foil cover, which is traditionally covered in the famous red, yellow and blue colours. It certainly looks the part in the wrapper but the real treat is when it has been peeled away.
The famous slogan for Cadbury Creme egg is 'How do you eat your's??'...well here's how I ate mine. I left it for a few hours in my fridge...took the egg out and removed about 4 cm from the top of one of the ends. I then ate a large proportion of the fondant but left a small layer all around the chocolate shell inside; I then slowly bit by bit ate my way through the shell, letting eating bite melt in the mouth...a truly wonderful experience.
In terms of taste both components are glorious - the fondant centre somehow avoids being too sickly and has a glorious sweet tasting flavour. Its texture is brilliant as well - its thick and viscous yet smooth on the tastebuds - in a word sensual. The chocolate shell is thick and has that melt on the tongue aspect that Dairy Milk so successfully encompasses.
Overall what a great way to start my Easter reviews. The Cadbury Creme egg is an all time classic and its no wonder why its so popular and adored by the masses. The Creme Egg captures everything an Easter egg should be - fun to eat, pretty to look at and of course glorious to taste. This is going to take some beating in terms of finding a better Easter product. The only aspect that slightly lets the product down is its size...its so tasty you want more..this just leaves us one question!?...Cadbury where is our Super Sized/King Sized Cadbury Creme Egg! Welcome to the top 5 Creme Egg :)
...More Easter Goodies tomorrow
