New Cadbury Pots of Joy - Caramel Review

There are three varieties in the new Cadbury Pots of Joy range and I've already reviewed the White Chocolate Buttons and Dairy Milk (see below for links). Today it's the turn of the Caramel which is the only pot to feature two separate layers.

Each variety of Pots of Joy has it's own unique style of packaging and the Caramel is no exception with it's long time mascot, the Caramel Bunny, adorning the pots.

The Caramel Pots of Joy is described as a "smooth & creamy dessert made with melted Cadbury milk chocolate with a rich caramel layer".

If you've read my reviews of the other two varieties of these desserts then you'll probably know what I'm about to say now. This Pots of Joy is smooth. Super silky smooth in fact. The consistency is much thicker than a chocolate sauce, and this thickness means that the dessert easily holds it's own shape on the spoon. The top layer is essentially the same as the Dairy Milk variety, a lovely rich Cadbury milk chocolate. The caramel layer has the same amazingly smooth and indulgent texture. It has a delicious butterscotch brown sugar quality, that gives it a greater depth of flavour than a standard caramel. The overall combination is delicious and works together very well.

Without a doubt my favourite flavour from this range was the White Chocolate Buttons Pots of Joy. The lovely texture is matched by an equally fabulous flavour and I don't think there is any other white chocolate dessert like it. Let me know which one is your favourite in the comments below! :)

  1. Ooo, these ones remind me of the ''rolo'' desserts pot just looking at them, with the caramel layer on the bottom! If it's like anything like them, then I'll love it haha! Great review Miss Katherine, had to admit though, think i'd enjoy the white choc too the most!...Can't beat a good cadbury caramel bar tho :)

  2. Thanks Miss Becca! :)

    I think you'll LOVE the white chocolate one!

  3. Yes, Yes, Yes, they all look lovely but for peeps like me who do not live within a major city but elsewhere (Northamptonshire-Rushden nr Bedford) where scrummy treats like these are not yet circulating in most stores, where do we find them right now? I've searched the grocery pages of websites for Tesco, Iceland & Asda as well as my local Adsa branch chilled aisles & no 'JOY'-pun very intended 2 B found so far!
