Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Mix-Ups with Oreo Review

As well as the new Marvellous Creations Banana Caramel Crisp bar, Cadbury's have also launched these new "Marvellous Mix-Ups" and the idea is that they're a "mix up" of different chocolates and sweets made by Cadbury. As someone who remembers penny "mix-ups" as a kid I was quite excited to see how the combinations would work, and if they could rival Revels for flavour-combining!

Today's review is for the Oreo variety (there's also a Maynards jellies variety - review due soon!) When I first read the description for these I was a little skeptical as it seems like a sneaky way to re-package existing products. The "mix-up" features Giant Dairy Milk Buttons, Dairy Milk Pebbles, Mini Oreos and White Chocolate Buttons. All delicious products in their own right...but what matters is whether or not they all work together, and luckily they do!

Opening the bag there was a nice amount of each product, with plenty of white chocolate buttons in particular and lots of mini Oreos.

Munching on a handful of them all together I have to say they worked perfectly - there's the crunchiness from the Oreos, the comforting taste of Dairy Milk from the Giant Buttons, a creamier and milkier edge from the white buttons and then a nice sugary crunch from the Pebbles.

Overall, this bag is a nice combination of creamy, crunchy and chocolatey elements mixed together and you'll definitely be reaching for more. My only gripe is that there seemed to be such a small amount in the bag - you certainly won't want to share them with anyone!

  2. What an innovative idea from Cadbury. Will look out for them when I next go to Tesco. One fairly new Cadbury product I saw recently was Mini Eggs in a bigger bag similar to those you get for Bitsa Wispa, Twirl Bites etc.

    1. Ah yes I've seen those. They seem to be doing all their products in those size bags. There's also vanilla Crispello in large bags now.

  3. First of all, your'e doing great work (I'm totes jealous) Secondly, I'm not sold on these "mashups". I reckon they'd be way better if they mixed them all up inside a chocolate bar - like their Marvelous Creations - which are awesome.

    1. Thanks Paula :) You're probably right, the concept of these is a bit odd I have to say. I think it's just an easy way for them to recycle existing products to be honest!

  4. How can these be vegetarian? When oreo and mayards contain gelatine?

    1. For a while now some Oreo products made in Sheffield have been made vegetarian and the Maynard's Fruit Jellies use Pectin as the gelling agent

    2. These gums are different to regular Maynards sweets.

  6. I loved the taste of this mix up but my only problem was that all the chocolates were covered in "oreo dust". Crumbs from the oreos got everywhere! Made it look messy but still tasted loovely!
