Are we really reviewing Christmas products in September!? Yes ChocolateMission crew we most certainly are :-)
The Countdown to Christmas starts here on ChocolateMission. The shelves of our supermarkets have already been in stock of Christmas gear for weeks now. We've slowly come to terms that we are now well into the fourth quarter of the year and have been easing ourselves in try out some of the new chocolatey treats on offer to us for 2013.
Below are the first of two new Cadbury Dairy Milk offerings. They may be small but that didn't mean the team were lacking in opinion:
Kcal 165 Fat 10.5g Fat(sats) 5.9g Carbs 16.5g (per Snowman)
Cadbury Egg 'n' Spoon we saw for the first time last Easter - 'Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate with a vanilla mousse centre'. On the face of things all looked rather great. The packaging carried some new style Dairy Milk branding (watch out for this being implemented across the range soon!) and clearly displayed the fun festive themed chocolate snowman inside.
Overall we will happily give the Cadbury Dairy Milk Mousse Snowman a ChocolateMission thumbs up. The idea may have been nicked from their limited edition exploits at Easter but it's a welcome return for the combination and would suggest you get involved if you enjoyed the Cadbury Egg 'n' Spoon.

Kcal 95 Fat 5.2g Fat(sats) 3.2g Carbs 10.5g (per Freddo)
We will keep this one short and sweet as we don't want to harp on the negatives :-) Cadbury have this year taken the decision to detach themselves from Magical Elves and hang their Popping Candy hats on our dearly beloved Mr Freddo. Indeed unfortunately Mr Freddo is now the character being used to host Cadbury's annual popping candy Christmas treat.
Overall the teams opinion is very much subjective so whilst we may not enjoy these Popping Candy Freddo we are sure there will be plenty that will love them. No doubt these will sell by the bucketload but can they really justify a £0.65 price point for just 18.0g of chocolate!? Drop us a line @Chocmission to let us know what you think of them. Apologies for the rating Mr Freddo.
