1. Both myself and the kids (boys of 8 & 5) tested the baubles.
2. Was quite a nice idea, especially to give as a present, not sure I'd have bought them otherwise.
3. Had tasted the snowballs before but hadn't had, or seen the Oreo chocs before, think these were the favourite, especially as they were individually wrapped, meant you could treat yourself to just one or two rather than open a packet and scoff the lot!
4. Would definitely recommend both products, for taste and novelty value.
Thanks for letting us try them.

Firstly, thanks for letting me review this.

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?
Everyone. Husband, kids, nephews and newices, grandparents, aunts and uncles.
Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?
They look great! And they taste great! I was actually pleasantly suprised by the Oreo one. I would go and buy more for sure, and gift them.
Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?
My favourite was the snow balls as it reminds me of mini eggs.
Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?
I would, because they look great, look fun and taste great! They are all bite sized portions, so it's good to share and enjoy with the family!

My husband, children and I all tried the baubles. It was a lovely christmassy treat. I would definitely recommend them as all of us loved it. It also looks lovely.

1. Me, DH & DS (4)

2. We liked them - they lasted all of two days grin

3. My favourite was the Oreo bauble - they were divine! My DH & DS preferred the snow bites - too much like a mini egg for my liking.

4. I'd recommend them - a nice treat.

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?
Mum, dad and two children

Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?
There was great excitement when they arrived. We held back until after dinner and then dove in. We enjoyed them very much - indeed DP, who normally doesn't eat much chocolate was really taken with the Oreos. The bauble box was a really nice idea - useful to keep little things in after. It is too big to hang on our tree - so not sure how one would use it as a bauble. It could have been prettier I thought - more sparkly. Still it worked well as a container and added an extra element.

Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?
I love the snow balls. I really like that crispy outer shell. We all found the oreos a little too sweet - though that did not put DP off - or anyone really.

Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?
We would all recommend it. It is a treat - couldn't eat more than a couple at one time - but then that is what a treat is. It is a nice idea, delivered well, with a good quality sweet.
No idea how much they cost and whether that would alter my feeling. ah see they are 304 pounds. Yes, that is pretty good.

Kellz92 Fri 18-Dec-15 12:33:45

1. Me, dh and dd (age 3)
2. I thought they were really nice. Lovely for Christmas time! fsmile
3. Id say my favourite was definitely the oreo ones. But I loved both of them.

Thanks for letting me test them xx

Thanks for letting me test them. Merry Christmas

bigsnugglebunny Fri 18-Dec-15 12:34:29

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?

Me, my 9 year old and my 15 year old sons

Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?

They are actually really nice, they look reusable too - which is excellent and good for the environment. They're quite a generous size.

Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?

I really liked the snow bites, but I really love mini eggs so they ticked those boxes. My lads liked the Oreos better, and hoovered most of those up! I was expecting to hate the Oreo ones because I absolutely despise Oreos - but actually they tasted really quite nice. Pleasantly surprised by both actually because I've been so disappointed with Roses this year, and the general decline in Cadburys flavour/texture/quality

Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes I would, they're cute, the goodies inside are tasty and they're definitely seasonal!

When these arrived, I couldn't wait to unwrap them, I mean, Cadbury's! Everyone loves Cadbury's at Christmas time!

The baubles were bigger than I expected at first because I was thinking Christmas tree baubles but I wasn't about to complain. The baubles being plastic were a good thing because while I was trying to unscrew the lid, I promptly dropped the snow bites fblush so good on Cadbury's for that one.

On opening them, I was quite surprised to see the snow bites were individually wrapped because in the normal packets, they're all just in there with no wrapping at all. The Oreo bites were also individually wrapped which helped because as soon as my children saw them, a war broke out over who was getting how many and whether or not I was being greedy by having one first 'just to check they weren't poisonous'.

For anyone who hasn't tried them, snow bites are round balls covered in what looks like icing sugar and when you bite into them, they have a thin crunchy layer before being filled with chocolate and dear God they're good.

They chocolate is melt in your mouth delicious and I'm afraid the children didn't get as many as they'd hoped on account of me scoffing them fblush

The oreo bites are indivually wrapped in the same way as the snow bites and after the first one, I thought I'd died and gone to chocolate heaven. I'm not even kidding. Cadbury's have managed to get them tasting exactly like Oreo cookies and they're gorgeous. They melt in your mouth and are so moreish.

Be warned though, too many will make you feel sick. I found that out the hard way after running out of the test pack in five minutes and having to nip to Asda to get some more to properly appreciate them fgrin

The only niggle I had with these is that they aren't filled to the top of the bauble. I know I shouldn't expect it to be, but I was disappointed nonetheless, especially after paying £3 for one at Asda.

All in all, I'd definitely buy these again, the children and I had so much fun play arguing over who got what, that it made the price tag worth it for me. I think we're going to have a new Christmas tradition involving these baubles from now on.

Now please excuse me, I've got a bauble hidden that I need to deal with before the children get home fwink

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?
Me and my son (10)
Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?
Its a great product and I love the oreo chocolate, my son loved the snow bites. I like to see recycled packaging, and think that my son would find a use for the bauble.
Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?
see above
Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?
I think these are fun and would get them instead of the chocolates that you hang on the tree. I would like to see smaller versions that would be fun to give as gifts to my sons friends. I think maybe a card recycled version would be good for those of us who like to be eco. But of course the chocolate was yummy!

ceridwyn Fri 18-Dec-15 12:42:03

Q1..All the children (nearly 2, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 15) and I tried the dairy milk baubles. I did want to keep them for closer to Christmas but once they were seen it was only a matter of time before small hands would suss out how to open them.
Q2..The bauble packaging is a nice touch, my 11 year old has commandeered the baubles to repaint in festive colours to put back on the tree and (here I quote) "to be refilled every night for the 12 days of Christmas, but no one is to touch them until Christmas...it was only because the had to be tested..." I think I like the repainted baubles better... Maybe as a present Cadbury should consider a kit to decorate and personalise the baubles.
Q3..The snow bites tasted like a sweeter version of Cadbury Mini eggs. Nice, a bit over sweet and liked by all except by my 2 year old. The Oreo chocolates nearly sparked world war 3 and we had to halve some of them for fair sharing. (I also halved the 2 year olds because I am paranoid about small round objects getting stuck in his windpipe...he has all his teeth but I still cut grapes!) Preference was definitely for the Oreo Bauble.
Q4...Yes but I think I will have to get a bauble for each person and personalise to prevent Ragnarok.

DantesJourney Fri 18-Dec-15 12:46:57

Oh and before I go, I'll just answer these questions:

ughts you may have.

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?

Me (34), my husband (27), my daughter (17), and my son (13).

Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?

Utterly delicious and sinfully addictive.

Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?

The Oreo bauble by far! Not that I don't like snow bites, but the Oreo bites are so good they can make me drool thinking about them fblush

Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?

Without hesitation. They're so good that I've already bought my mum some (which she scoffed) and am getting some more fgrin

RedRoseMummy Fri 18-Dec-15 12:51:15

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?

Me, Partner, DS1 (5), DD (3)

Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?

We really liked them. The packaging was clever and it was good to have individually wrapped or little bags as it meant you could screw the lid back on for later.

Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?

The Snow Bites. I love them and the little bags had the perfect amount for a quick chocolate hit.

Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes, both for your own home or as a gift. They are too big to hang on our tree but look cute sitting underneath. The packaging is reusable and I think it would be fun to refill with treats, perhaps to go with children's stockings (or just buy a new one as a gift for them).

Ahardmanisgoodtofind Fri 18-Dec-15 12:52:10

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?
My self ds,5, dp, dm and dgd
Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?
Loved them. Great novelty gift for Xmas and easily refillable which is always a huge plus
Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?
The Oreo was our favourite,loved that they were individually wrapped too.ds thought the snow bites were ace in their little packets but thought with a name like snow bites they should be "cold"(minty)
Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?
Definitely, I thought you got a fair bit in each bauble and the chocolate tasted yummy. I loved that the baubles could be reused, and was particularly pleased the snow bites came in individual packets-much easier to share out/keep an eye on how much dp ds had eaten.

Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it? Yes, the snow bites were my faves.

Thanks for letting me test, I'll be buying more grin

Sairelou Fri 18-Dec-15 12:58:52

Thank you so much for the opportunity to try these! I was slightly baffled at who would send me random chocolate through the post at first until I read my emails smile

1. DH, DS(2) and myself tried both of the chocolates.
2. We all loved the baubles. It's a great festive idea and more exciting to gift than a boring box of chocolates. The Oreos ones were dangerous, I could have polished off them off on my own if they weren't prised out of my hands by DH. The Snowball ones were also lovely, but I was a bit disappointed to see they were in mini packets rather than individually wrapped like the Oreo ones were.
3. My favourites were the Oreos, DH and DS preferred the Snowballs, which meant more Oreo ones for me!
4. Yes I would recommend as a Christmas gift, as said above they are more exciting than a boring box of chocs!

HappyMum4 Fri 18-Dec-15 12:59:15

Thanks you so much for letting us trial these great baubles!

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?
Myself, husband, and all four kids (12, 11, 10 & 9), plus the kids gave one to their grandparents when they visited!

Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?

We thought they were brilliant, liked the idea of the individually wrapped treats, good size treats, not too big or too small, we bought some more to put on the tree so it looked a bit fuller! We also got some more to give for presents coz they're a nice size, good for stockings too. The girls bought them for their friends having seen ours.
Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?
We really liked the idea cookie one as they'd not had that before and they love Cadbury chocolate plus Oreos so that was definitely their favourite!

Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?
Oh definitely, as I said we got more to give as gifts as they're a perfect size, quite big but not too expensive, and great for the tree or under the kids little trees in their rooms. Great for the kids to get for their school friends or grandparents too.
Thanks again, really chuffed to be picked for this.

gazzalw Fri 18-Dec-15 13:02:32

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?
DCs and DW (I didn't get a look in fenvy)!

Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?
Everyone in our family really liked them - and a fun stocking filler pressie!

Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?
Apparently the Oreo ones were preferred over the 'snowbites' by all tasters/testers!

Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes is the general consensus from my family, although I saw them retailing at £3 (with a £1 discount already applied) in Sainsburys and thought that quite 'steep' in terms of 'value for money' (or not as the case may be!).

ritagcabrita Fri 18-Dec-15 13:04:40

Q1. My kids, aged 12 and 2; myself and my husband.
Q2. Delicious! Could eat them non stop. It was a pitty that they finished so quickly.
Q3. I loved the snow bites. They were soft, sweet and perfect in size.
Q4. Yes, I would recommend them because they are a wonderful treat and comes in a fun, very suitable packaging.

WheresLarry Fri 18-Dec-15 13:11:24

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?
All of us tried them, Me, Wife, Daughter1 (4) and Daughter2 (2).

Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?
Brilliant, novelty packaging and taste amazing. Daughter could not decide which ones were her favourite, whenever I asked her she proclaimed that she couldn't choose as they were both her favourite.

Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?
Everyone in our household agrees that the Oreo's were the best. The snow bites were good, but we tend to like softer sweets rather than hard shell sweets.

Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, they will make great stocking fillers. If I could I would forgo any normal tree baubles and hang these on my tree. I would tell people the snow bites were the best just so there was more Oreo bites for me

Mrshairyhead Fri 18-Dec-15 13:23:29

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?

My husband and I, and our three children aged 11, 8 and 2.

Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?

I like it as a gift idea as it seems a bit more special than the same product in a plastic bag. My daughter was a tiny bit disappointed as she wanted to hang the bauble on the tree which wasn't possible as it was too heavy.

Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?

I preferred the snow bites as they reminded me of mini eggs. All the chocolate was liked by the kids.

Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?

I wouldn't buy them for my own kids as you don't actually get that much chocolate for the price, but they would be ideal to buy if you were asked to donate some chocolate or a raffle prize etc.

SheilaTakeABow Fri 18-Dec-15 13:26:40

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles?
Me, DH and DS (8)

Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall?
We all loved them. I'd already bought a Snow Bite bauble for DS' stocking as he loves them, so it was good to see he wasn't going to be disappointed. I did struggle to get the top off though, but maybe that's just me.

Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it?
DS and DH preferred the Snow Bites, while I preferred the Oreos - I found the Snow Bites a little bland and they didn't give me that chocolatey 'hit'.

Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes I would. The packaging makes them a nice gift, and there's less than in a traditional selection box, which is helpful if you're trying to avoid too much unhealthy stuff. And better for sharing too.

noo1985 Fri 18-Dec-15 13:29:14

Q1. Who in your family tried the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles? Myself and my 2 children who are 4 and 3
Q2. What did you think of the Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles overall? I love the idea that you can hang on your tree and that they are sealed so no worry if you have pets and children find it more difficult to get in them
Q3. Did you have a favourite bauble? If so, which was it? The Oreo one as individual sweets better than packets
Q4. Would you recommend Cadbury Dairy Milk Baubles as a Christmas treat? If so, why? If not, why not? Yes but only really the Oreo one think the other bauble did not contain enough sweets and less likely to share!
