Cadbury Dairy Milk D'aim Eggs Review
Being a big fan of the Dairy Milk with D'aim bar I reviewed last year I was rather excited to see these new Dairy Milk with D'aim mini eggs in WH Smiths recently. I'll ignore the fact that it's too early for Easter yet - January is just about acceptable in my book considering they've started to bring Easter eggs out in December now (see my "Easter Eggs in December?!" rant).
For £1 the bag contained a mere 8 mini eggs which came to 86g, which is a bit of a ripoff considering a 120g block of Dairy Milk with D'aim is £1 in Poundland and other shops, and contains a considerably greater amount of both chocolate and D'aim!
What I found odd about these eggs is that instead of being solid chocolate eggs with bits of D'aim, they appeared to contain a seperate chocolate centre with the D'aim pieces in it. Since both the filling and the shell are pure chocolate I don't understand the point of this at all; perhaps they used the same egg moulds as Cadbury Creme Egg? Anyway it made the texture rather odd as the eggs crumble apart awkwardly when you bite into them.
Taste-wise there's the usual creamy Dairy Milk chocolate which is as good as ever, but unfortunately it was a bit lacking in actual D'aim pieces. The few that were there (9% of each egg in total) were tiny in size and barely perceptible in taste; they just offered a minor bit of crunch.
Overall, I felt these D'aim Mini Eggs were a disappointment - the lack of D'aim pieces, small quantity of eggs per pack and general lack of imagination just makes them a bit "meh". I'd rather have the fantastic Cadbury Egg 'N' Spoons for Easter instead!
