Cadbury Egg N' Spoons are back...this time disguised as "New" Cadbury Dairy Milk Snow Balls. Yes, these are part of the Mondelez strategy of recycling their products endlessly...so far over the last year we've seen Mini Eggs on shelves twice (as "Wini Eggs"), Cadbury Dairy Milk Mousse Snowman resurrected as the Cadbury Mousse Bunny, and Creme Eggs as Ghooost Eggs. Don't get me wrong it's nice to have these products on shelves regularly, but I'd much prefer something truly new and different.
But, I still had to try these. I must admit I rather do enjoy Cadbury Egg N' Spoons, so these excited me more than they should.
The idea is the same as Dairy Milk Egg N' Spoon; you peel the wrapper, bite the top off the "snowball" then remove the creamy filling using the spoons provided.
I do like the snowflake shaped design of the box, it's very festive. Much nicer than the Egg N Spoon egg boxes, but not quite as eco-friendly I would imagine...
Like Egg N' Spoons, these come with only two purple spoons. I'm guessing each person is meant to eat only two snowballs each.
I should mention that these are vegetarian friendly, as well as gluten and nut free, although may contain nut traces. They cost me £2 in Wilkinsons.
I bit off the top as instructed...
|Let it snow let it snow let it snow...|
Overall, these aren't innovative creations but they're a fun novelty that any kid or big kid will love at Christmas.
