Whilst in Morrisons over the weekend I spotted these new Cadbury Roses Pots of Joy. I couldn't quite believe it - this is the first time Cadbury have used the Strawberry Dream from Roses in a different product! They're described as "A layer of smooth & creamy dessert with melted Cadbury milk chocolate and a layer of Strawberry flavour fondant". The pack contained 2 pots with foil lids.
Peeling the lid off one revealed an upper chocolate layer with a larger amount of strawberry fondant below:
The chocolate layer tasted similar to Dairy Milk Pots of Joy - very creamy and smooth, but perhaps a tad sweeter. The fondant layer had a strong strawberry flavour which replicated the filling from Roses Strawberry Dream very well - meaning it's very sweet! It also reminded me of the Dairy Milk Strawberries & Creme bars from last Summer - slightly yogurty. The combination was very nice and made for a lovely sweet treat, although it was a bit of a sugar rush all at once. The pots are quite small which is probably a good thing in this case!
Overall, these Roses Pots of Joy are a nice limited edition and I'm sure fans of Strawberry Dreams will enjoy them. They're a bit too sweet for me, although I certainly wouldn't say no if offered one again!
