Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Mousse Snowman (new for Xmas 2014!)
It's September so of course that means it's officially time for Christmas products to appear on shelves! I must admit I felt a bit silly looking at the new Christmas section in Tesco recently...until I reminded myself that I'm just doing research on behalf of you, my dear readers! ;)
There wasn't much new apart from this Dairy Milk Chocolate Mousse Snowman - which joins the Vanilla Mousse Snowman launched last year - and is described as "Milk chocolate with a soft milk chocolate flavoured mousse filling".
Like the vanilla variety it comes in a simple snowman shape. Cutting into the poor chap revealed the chocolatey filling...not very snowy is he!
Whilst I thought the Vanilla Mousse Snowman was too sweet, I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this version a lot more. The chocolate flavour was pleasantly rich and comforting, and not overpoweringly sweet, plus it was extremely creamy. I had expected it to be rather plain and boring, but it actually makes a good alternative to the sweeter vanilla variety.
Overall, as simple as this flavour is it's a nice partner to the vanilla version and I'm sure many will be enjoying these over the next 4 months or so. It might not be Christmas every day...but at least you can pretend it is with these! ;)
