Cadbury Dinky Deckers Review


I'd heard bad things about these new Cadbury Dinky Deckers from other reviewers, but curiosity got the better of me...could they really be that bad? Turns out that yes, they can, at least compared to the regular Double Decker bar.

These are part of Mondelez/Cadbury's "shrink everything except the bathroom sink" strategy of making money from customers, and they're doing a good job of it...they now make miniature versions of most of their products, from Cadbury Caramel Nibbles, to Bitsa Wispa, to Twirl Bites...there's even Cadbury Fudge Minis now! Those other products stand up fine when made into minis but how does Double Decker fare?


Not very well, it turns out! Shrunk down into miniature form, the ratios are all wrong, as noted by One Treat. The nougat and crunchy cereal sections have been flipped around, making the bites too chewy and without the crispy crunchy texture that should be more prominent.


The chocolate and filling is also ridiculously sweet and doesn't much resemble anything other than pure sugar...they're surprisingly tasteless.

Overall, I'm really not impressed with these Dinky Deckers, they just don't work in miniature form. I'll stick with the Cadbury Fudge Minis and Snickers Bites instead...both are far yummier!

5 out of 10.
