For my Cadbury is chocolate, I obviously do like other brands, but I think since Cadbury was the one that I was brought up on it's the one I tend to stick with for the majority of my chocolate treats. I like and Easter egg too, but being that Easter has just passed I have noticed another rather tasty treat on offer from Cadbury.
This is really just another rip off and an effort to gain a bigger percentage of the financially profitable Easter façade. The meaning has gone now with both Easter and Christmas its all money money money and the significance of these religious occasions as all but gone. Even the TV doesn't put many specials on for Easter, any way I digress.
The bright yellow wrapping is typical of that for the Cadbury caramel bar, and does look quite nice with the picture of the caramel bunny on the front. Haven't seen her on TV for a while.The caramel bunnies have come down in price from 75p per packet of two bunnies to two packets for a pound, that's four decent sized caramel bunnies for a quid............count me in. The bunnies are about 3-4 inches tall and about quarter of an inch thick so they are by no means huge, this said they are filled with caramel so you really wouldn't want to be eating much more than one at a time, unless you name happens to be Donf18.
As I mentioned before they are a rip of and a rip off of the good old Cadbury caramel bar. Nice milk chocolate sweet and melting with some delicious soft sticky and runny caramel inside. I tend to keep mine in the fridge for a bit to avoid the mess, since they do tend to have their sweet insides run all over the place, as did the caramel bar. They are however very nice and worth the new price tag. I think the original 75p was way way over the top for the size they are.
At two for a quid dive in, if you can't get this offer then just go for the 60p caramel bar you will actually get more chocolate and caramel for your money that way. They are nice look like little bunnies, but they are just a con to get you to cough up more dosh at Easter.
Cadbury's Caramel Bunnies
What are they?
Chocolate shaped caramel bunnies!
These are another spin-off from the original Cadbury's Caramel bars but shaped in a bunny form and there are two!
What do I think?
I love this too and also prefer this to the original bar. In taste, I don't think it tastes any different from the original, but just with much thicker chocolate, especially around the big ears of the bunny (!). It's nice to see them using the lady bunny character for this because she seems to have disappeared over the years and you don't really see her on the original bars, in fact, there is absolutely no association of her to the bar at all. They should really bring this out to be sold all year round, because the lady bunny was the main focus of these chocolate bars in the advertisements in the first place.
The bunny shaped packs are quite expensive I think, they cost about 85p when I bought mine which seems a lot, but you do get two bunnies, but measuring them up, there is definitely less chocolate from the two bunnies than the original chocolate bar, and hence it isn't really very good value.
There is a lot more caramel in this so, I think the reason for two bunnies is that you get the option of having just one and saving the other for later, as it does get quite sickly after eating two. This is, in essence exactly the same as the bar, tastes the same, has the same components, but just shaped in bunny form, and a lot more expensive!
Worth a try for the novelty value, but I wouldn't rush out to buy this as it just costs a little too much than it should....
Thanks for reading. xx
The Cadbury's Caramel bunnies are a twin pack of chocolate bunnies that have been in the shops for a good few months now. They seem to be harder to find nowadays so I am assuming that the chocolate treats were a limited edition item, brought out for Easter time this year. I paid 55 pence for the twin pack of chocolate bunnies from my local shop.
The package is 40g in weight and each of the bunnies is about the length of my index finger and is a slightly 'flat' bunny shaped chocolate bar. Inside the bunny shaped milk chocolate shell is a gorgeous caramel filling.
I think these little treats are an absolute delight to eat. Not only is the shape of the bunnies very attractive - particularly for kids and of course at Easter time - but the taste is quite delicious and I find the size of each bunny is just enough to satisfy my chocolate craving without being TOO bad on the waistline, given their rather 'miniature' size...
The chocolate 'shell' of the bunny is a delicious milk chocolate made from the usual high standard that we all know and expect from the Cadbury's brand. The chocolate is rich and very sweet, without being at all over-powering or sickly. The balance is just right for my own personal tastes and I find the chocolate is lovely and creamy with no bitterness to it at all.
The filling inside the chocolate bunny 'shells' is also extremely sweet, and I am rather convinced that it is slightly different from the caramel that is contained within the traditional Cadbury's Caramel bars, although it might just be my imagination?! The bunny's filling is a lovely soft caramel, with an almost velvety texture. I think the taste is slightly rich, similar to a toffee taste, and the amount of the caramel filling in the bunnies is just right for me... any more filling and I think the bunnies filling would be slightly sickly for my own tastes.
I find the chocolate bunnies go really well with a hot cup of tea, an ideal afternoon (or after dinner) snack! The bunnies each contain 100 calories which seems very high considering the smallish size, but is probably on a par with similar chocolate types of snack.
I can see from the packaging that the Cadbury's caramel bunnies are suitable for a vegetarian diet and there is suitable allergy information given so that consumers can make an informed choice.
I have seen the Cadbury's chocolate bunnies for sale in larger shops and stores such as Tesco and Asda, as well as in my local independent corner shops. You can expect to pay between 50 - 65 pence for the little pack, which in my opinion is around the same price as an average bar of chocolate nowadays.
I would recommend giving the Cadbury's bunnies a try out, but I think you'd better be quick as I don't think they are going to be in the shops that much longer, well according to my other half anyway. That said, the pack I got recently had a good sell-by date on the packet, so it's anybody's guess as to when these might disappear I reckon?! I will admit that I will be gutted if or when they DO dissappear as I have grown to be rather fond of these little choccy rabbits!
I am going to give the bunnies top Dooyoo marks for being so completely yummy and delicious. And I really can't ignore how cute they are either. A really cute chocolate creation for sure!
I've sampled quite a few small Easter treats this year, including the Lindt Lindor truffle egg and the Malteaster bunny, but I've not been very impressed with any of them. However this set of Caramel Bunnies from Cadbury's was a pleasant surprise and hops into the lead ahead of both the aforementioned items, with a healthy four stars.
The caramel bunnies come packaged in yellow and purple wrappers, giving them an unmistakably Cadbury's appearance. Each packet contains two bunnies, which means they are lovely for sharing with a partner, buying for two children, or overindulging in all by yourself!
A packet of two bunnies usually costs around 59 pence before Easter, though I frequently saw them on 2 for £1 offers, including both these and the Malteaster bunnies. After Easter, if you can still find them, you will only have to pay around half price depending on the store. Asda currently have them on sale for around 30 pence.
When you open the packet, you find two adorable little chocolate bunnies. They are quite narrow and short but they are satisfyingly deep and chunky. They have very cute etchings on them including fluttery eyelashes and little bow ties, which make them much cuter than the plain Malteaster bunnies and even the plain Lindt bunnies.
Biting into one of the bunnies is a nice experience. The chocolate is not too thick and there is plenty of lovely, sweet, gooey caramel inside. I sometimes find Cadbury's chocolate tastes a bit basic or sweet, but when mixed with caramel it is really good. The bunny tastes a lot like a Cadbury's caramel bar or like the caramel Roses chocolates.
Because there is so much caramel I find that one bunny is usually satisfying and sweet enough for me and I can restrain myself from having the second one too, however some people might find this too hard!
Each bunny contains exactly 100 calories, plus 9.8 grams of sugar, 5.3 grams of fat and 3.2 grams of saturates. Not the end of the world if you're only eating them once a year!
These are a nice little Easter product and although they don't rock my world, I've enjoyed them and I'll probably buy a packet or two next year as well!
I'm feeling a bit fed up tonight because the easter buny forgot to visit me. Don't get me wrong, he did visit my house, he just didn't visit me. So all I've been doing all day is pinching the odd bit of choccy from the kids.
To make matters worse the Mother in Law came down to visit, and munched her way through her chocolate, that the kids (me) I had bought her. Did I get a piece? Not a chance.
A couple of hours ago things looked up though. She was going home. Taxi at the door (means I grabbed my keys) I took her back to her house. On the return I realised I was running out of Petrol. I popped into a Petrol station and there on the counter literally begging me to take them home were 2 small easter bunnies. I'm convinced I even heard them say 'eat me'.
I eagerly gave the 80p to the cashier and lustfully looked at these 2 bunnies, and thoughts of Fatal Attraction, and the part were the bunny was found in a pan, quickly entered my mind. However I wasn't going to be so cruel. I'd just bite the heads off these gorgeous looking 100 calorie animals, and then sort the mess out later. As I bit into the chocolate the insides poured out, gooey caramel at its best. It was so sweet it was delicious. The milk chocolate too tasted just like the dairy milk, that you are used to from Cadbury.
My messy deed done. I covered my tracks. Wiped my finger prints off the steering wheel and drove home. Walking through the door, my family have no idea of my evil deed, and never will:-)
With it being Easter I didn't ask for any chocolate even though I'm a chocoholic. But I did receive this small 40g 2 pack of dairy milk caramel bunnies.
The bunnies are around 2 inches in length and 2 cm wide. The depth of the chocolate bunny is around one cms.
When you bite into this small little bunny you can hear the chocolate crack and your mouth will fill with the smooth sweet tasting caramel. I personally find the caramel to sweet and couldn't eat too many of these little bunnies.
The chocolate is plain dairy milk, you really can't go wrong with this chocolate as its one of the most popular chocolates. The chocolate is smooth and contains no lumps. As you eat the chocolate it just seems to melt away in your mouth and leaves you with that sweet taste that will make you want more.
The combination of the chocolate and caramel is just divine. It's an excellent combination that tastes fantastic together. I like to bite the bunny's feet off and suck out the caramel.
This packet contains 2 small bunnies which each have a total of 100 calories. They are great to share or gobble up yourself.
They retail around the 59pence mark depending on where you purchase them from. I have recently seen them on offer in Sainsbury's at 2 for £1.
Overall I really liked these sweet treats, but I don't think I would personally purchase them. They are exactly the same as the dairy milk caramel bars which do contain slightly more chocolate at a smaller price. I would much rather purchase one of these instead, but for Easter they are a great fun treat.
I was given a pack of these to add to my huge chocolate mountain in the Binge till you're Sick festive season, otherwise known as Easter. Caramel Bunnies are made by Cadburys and feature the Caramel sexy bunny on the packaging (have you ever heard a west country accent sound so delightful?) They come in a pack of two.
The bunnies inside are almost 3 inches high and almost an inch wide, and are very detailed- it's almost a shame to eat them, they're very cute. They have the high quality chocolate you expect from Cadbury's Dairy Milk and a lovely runny caramel to boot (which runs all over your keyboard if you're trying to type whilst eating- be warned.)
According to the packaging, the GDA per bunny is 5.0% (or 100 calories), whatever the fig that means. To be honest, who really cares at Easter, unless you've given up chocolate for Lent. There is 9.8g (or 10.9% GDA) of sugar in each bunny and 5.3g fat. with 100 kcal.
A great little treat at about 2 for £1 in the supermarkets. Great if you want something to share amongst kids. (Or if like me if your kids are given them and you confiscate one of them on the context of saving them from the evils chocolate by eating it yourself.)
I first spotted these probably around January time. You know how when shops get rid of Chirstmas then they wheel out the Easter Eggs? Well that's ok with me, as I like Easter Eggs.
These have mostly been found down the checkouts, which catches you eye when waiting to get served. I know these are more expensive because they are a special gimmic product, and these cost 59p in any shop i've seen them in. Not sure of the weigh of these, as don't have the pack to hand, but the whole pack isn't as heavy as a regular Cadbury's Caramel pack, which is obviously cheaper.
In the pack there is 2 Chocolate bunnies. They are an ok lenght, but that thick or wide. They are flat on the bottom and on the top is the engaved shape of the bunny. The Chocolate seems quite thick, and when you bite into this then you get a runny layer of Caramel. There isn't too much Caramel in here either but enough for you to get the taste and break up the Chocolate taste. I have tried these from the fridge which was ok, but I think it's best at room temperature as the caramel is nice and runny and tastes sweeter.
This reminds me of a thicker chunkier version of a Caramel Freddo, but a lot more expenisve. I like these and have bought quite a few over the last few months. Although they are nothing new, they are Chocolate and Caramel which is always a good combination in my book.
Don't have a pack to hand so can't comment on the nutritional information in this.
A nice little Easter treat although that bit more expensive.
Being a complete chocaholic, when I saw these in my local Tesco's on thr run up to easter. You get two per pack which is in a smallish purple and yellow cadbury wrapper. They are currently on offer in most places including Tesco's and Sainsburys for 2 for £1. This is two packs which means that you end up with 4 individual caramel bunnies.
On first opening the packet you can see that half of each packet is taken up by one bunny. They are the length of the packet, half the width and are quite thick. You are met by the gorgeous scent of carbury chocolate. The bunnies do look quite cute and do have a little design on each of them, including eyes, nose, whiskers, etc.
When you first bite into the 'ears' (poor bunny) you may not recieve a lot of caramel as the ears are quite thick and a lot of it is chocolate. The chocolate tastes just as creamy and smooth as any other Cadburys item. On your second bite you will probably then be able to taste the caramel - this being pure delight!
The caramel is very thick and doesn't have a gooey and 'stretchy'
likeness that the normal Caramel bars hold. None the less it is very smooth and sweet and works magically with the Cadbury chocolate. The caramel is a yellowy, golden colour and even to look at seems much thicker. In your mouth it feels thicker on the tounge and the chocolate melts around it, complementing it completley!
Each bunny contains 100 calories so is good for a quick, tasty, easter treat! They may not be great for hiding round the house / garden seperatley as do not come individually wrapped - though will be great if you hide them as a pair in their wrapper.
Overall these are very similar to the normal caramel bar, but the shape is the only really thing that has changed, I think they are great value for money as you can get 4 individual bunnies for £1.

Being on the run up to Easter, I decided to buy myself a treat when at Spar the other day and so went over to their Easter chocolate section. I came across the Cadbury's Caramel Bunnies which I have seen before but have never bothered to buy but being after a bit of chocolate I decided to give them a try as they sounded quite a good idea. I think they had these out last year but I usually always buy Creme Eggs or other smaller eggs as they seem more traditional but lately I have gained a bit of an obsession for Cadbury's Caramel being my new favourite chocolate so these were ideal for me.
Cadbury's was founded almost 200 years ago. John Cadbury opened his first grocer store in 1824 and one of the products he sold was cocoa. When sales of cocoa and drinking chocolate increased, John decided to rent a factor in 1831, come 1842 he was selling many different types of cocoa and drinking chocolate. In 1847 they moved to a bigger factory, their shop in Birmingham was in business right through to the 1960's. Now Cadbury's have factories all over the world as well as franchises in Hershey's in America.
In usual Cadbury's style, these come in a small packet and have the Caramel colours which are purple and yellow. They come in a foil wrapper and on the front have the Cadbury' bunny rabbit to make them stand out. They are only a 40g pack but are enough just to get a small chocolate fix which is what is good about them.
The nutritional information has been done per bunny so in terms of that if we look at the calories, one bunny is 100 calories which doesn't really seem too bad. It also contains 9.8g of sugars, 10.9% of our DGA, Fat is 5.3g 7.6% of GDA and 3.2g of saturates as well as 0.08g of salt. The bunnies also contain milk, soya, and may contain nut as well for allergy purposes. The equivalent of 426ml off milk in every 227g of milk chocolate according to the packet.
Once you unwrap the packaging, you will be faced with two small chocolate bunnies which are too cute to eat. Anyway, the chocolate is quite thick on them so when you bite into it, it is actually quite a filling snack. The caramel inside is very sweet but also quite a thick consistency but together with the chocolate creates the perfect combination. The chocolate has a very sweet vanilla like smell to it and after these two bunnies, I found that I had definitely had enough chocolate as with the chocolate being quite thick there is really no need for anything else.
I definitely recommend these to anyone who loves Cadbury's chocolate and if you love the Cadbury's Caramel chocolate then even better. They are a great little gift for Easter or a nice Easter treat even just for yourself. I think these should be made all year round as they are so nice and I will definitely be buying them again before they are taken off the shelve after next weekend.
These little bunnies cost me only 60p in my local Spar, so I am assuming this is the cost for them in all stores. I think that is quite a reasonable price for them as they are quite a good value for money chocolate snack and they will fill you up for a bit. I don't think these come in multipacks or anything bigger as I have only seen them in a two pack.
If you want anymore information on Cadburys and their products, then head on over to their official website http://www.cadbury.co.uk
My boyfriend picked up a packet of Cadbury Caramel Chocolate Bunnies (40g) from our local newsagents for around 70p. I immediately thought this was a bit of a rip off, considering you can purchase a Dairy Milk, weighing 49g, for around 20p less. The packet contained two small bunny shapes, around 6cm in length. However, the actual thickness of the chocolate was quite generous so, being a bit of a chocoholic, I nabbed one myself and gave the other to my daughter.
After the extortionate price, imagine my further disappointment on the discovery that my bunny had zero caramel inside! I took a quick peek at my daughter's and hers was exactly the same-just solid milk chocolate.
I understand that Cadbury is going through a tough time at the moment; having being bought out by Kraft and redudancies sky-rocketting but, as a company, they aren't exactly doing themselves any favours neglecting the essential elements of their chocolate production, especially at this time of year, when Easter is upon us. I presume this is why that begun the product in the first place?
However, to some extent, I am willing to give Cadbury the benefit of the doubt. I have awarded them two stars for this product, as the high quality of chocolate we have come to expect from Cadbury does still remain. It is just unfortunate that I can only praise them for the actual chocolate and not the extras I was hoping for!
A pack of two bunnies contains 100 calories which isn't all that bad (come on, it's Easter!) and I suppose the rabbit shapes are quite a sweet novelty for little ones. However, I fail to see how this justifies the price.
I am sure that my personal experience with the caramel was a minor manufacturing error, but being the unlucky consumer, I can't rate it highly which is a first for me and anything Cadbury!
Me and my mate who I am staying with at the moment barely ever eat anything unhealthy. We've both been cutting back and trying to get fit however the other day she had been out shopping and picked up a couple of packets of these caramel bunnies and me not ever having them before was well looking forward to tasting them with a nice cuppa!
Yellow and purple oblong wrapper that is silver foil inside and it has a picture of a cartoon bunny on the front and I am told that it is Cadbury, Dairy Milk, Caramel Bunnies which has 2 bunnies in it and contains a 100 calories per bunny. On the back of the wrapper other information listed includes an at a glance nutritional chart as well as a full nutritional chart being shown, ingredients and allergy advice is stated as well as the weight which is 40g, the best before date is clearly stamped on as well as being told that they are suitable for Vegetarians and contact details for Cadbury are listed. Nice enough, easy to tear open packet this is!
I loved these! Fairly flat shaped bunnies with etchings on the milk chocolate to give them bunny features, they looked great and I loved the fact there was two of them in a packet! Milk chocolate that is of course the usual Cadbury standard it was rich, creamy and snapped in the mouth before melting. The caramel filling was gooey, sweet and sort of had a toffee taste to it and there was plenty of that too!
These bunnies are excellent and great value for what they are and only 100 calories per bunny not only do they taste like an indulgent treat they are not so bad for your hips! Love Cadbury, loving them!
Nutritional Information Per Bunny:
Available in all good supermarkets etc costing around 45p each.
Each year at easter, various different sweet and chocolate companies bring out something as a novelty to compete with the creme egg. This used to be a huge range of eggs, but this year, the novelties are trending away from eggs. I've seen at least 2 bunny shaped chocolates and this morning when I was in poundland I picked up 2 of the packets of 2 caramel bunnies, as they were 2 for £1. Normally I believe they cost around 60-70 pence a packet.
The pack comes with 2 bunny shaped chocolates, which are about the size of 2 pieces of cadburys caramel joined together. It is made to look a little bit like the bunny off of the cadburys caramel adverts and is made of good, thick chocolate and filled with the delicious gooey caramel you expect from cadburys.
It is a lovely flavour, and not too sweet. It makes a nice little snack with a cup of coffee. I think the fact that it comes in a package of 2 is nice, you can eat one and save one for later, or share with someone you love.
It is definately a treat, and novelty is a good way of describing the product, it is nice, but you can spend less and get more chocolate in a proper caramel bar. But saying that, I'd be happy if I found some caramel bunnies in my easter basket!
I seem to be sampling all the Easter chocolate lately, these Cadbury Caramel bunnies are no exception! I don't even like caramel but I was won over by the novelty cuteness! I bought my chocolate in a 2 for £1 offer along with a little MaltEaster bunny.
A pack of bunnies comes in the distinctive Cadbury Caramel colours of purple and yellow. The label states that each bunny is exactly 100 calories. A pack contains 2 little bunnies, so if you're restrained enough to only eat one at a time it's an ideal treat if you're trying to cut down on your chocolate intake.
As I said before I don't really like caramel. Although Cadbury's caramel is good quality, smooth, sweet and creamy, in normal sized chocolate bars I find it too sweet. However, in these bunnies the chocolate is really thick and I think the ratio of chocolate to caramel is just right. A bunny (or two) makes a really nice treat in the afternoon with a cup of tea.
I really recommend these bunnies. Personally I prefer them to standard Cadbury's Caramel! This is probably an issue of personal taste though as some people may have a problem with the thickness of the chocolate.
Personally, I will be buying these again. It's just a shame they're only around as a seasonal product!
I love when the big chocolate brands bring out the easter specials bringing us tasty treats to perk up the winter. One of my favourites used to be terrys chocolate orange eggswhen you used a small spoon to scoop out the chocolate mousse or vanilla mousse, unfortunately they never made a comeback in the easter specials a couple of years ago so I have been trying to fill the void!
In attempting to fill this void I have been testing out some of the new limited editions and saw the Caramel Bunnies in Asda when I was doing my weekly shop. Now I love the dairy milk caramel bar so I thought these would be a tasty treat. They come in a small dairy milk branded purple and yellow pack with the Cadbury's Caramel Buuny on the front, the pack contains 2 caramel bunnies which are in the shape of the Cadbury's Caramel Bunny.
Each Caramel Bunny is chocolate filled with lucious caramel, just like a bar of dairy milk caramel. Off with her head sounds like Alice in Wonderland but no it was just me devouring the first bunny - head first! The chocolate is dairy milk tasty and the caramel filling is plentiful, I defeintely found one was enough as I found them quite sweet, but that didn't stop me eating the other one later in the day. For a treat they are really nice and each bunny contains 100 calories and 5.3g of which 3.2g are saturated fat so it is probably better to keep to one at a time.
They cost around 60p ish per pack depending on where you purchase them but quite often you can find them on offer for 2 for a £1.
A good easter treat but I still miss my terry's orange eggs.
