      A nice treat for little ones

      Recently me my Husband and my Son Jayden went round my parents for lunch, one thing which my Parents bought for Jayden to have as part of his lunch so he didn't feel left out was Cadbury Mini Animals.  I knew he would like these as he likes pretty much anything and I knew he would like cute animal shapes and feel like he was having the same as us.   Packaging Cadbury Mini Animals come in a large foil bag, this is the Cadbury trade mark dark purple colour, the Cadbury logo is at the top with the name Mini Animals written underneath in yellow writing, there are then pictures of the animals featured on the biscuits covering the bag swimming and surfing in a pool of chocolate.   The back of the bag also features the name of the product and pictures of the animals along with all of the product information including nutritional information, ingredients and allergy advise, all clearly written and laid out.  On the sides of the bag is a picture of each animal with a little bit of writing about each one.   Inside the bag the biscuits come in individual smaller versions of the outer bag, these are the same dark purple colour with the name of the product written on it, each bag has a picture of one of the animals on it with a little caption.  The same product information appears on the back of the individual bag.   The Biscuits  The biscuits are basically little biscuits in the shape of animals including Leroy the Lion, Cheeko the Monkey, Rockodile the Crocodile, Swoop the Bird and Ella Funky the Elephant, these biscuits are then half covered in Cadbury chocolate, you can actually see what each biscuit shape is which I was pleased about.  The layer of chocolate isn't that thick but thick enough to compliment the biscuits nicely, the biscuit part tastes a bit like digestive biscuits.  You get approximately 12 biscuits in each individual bag which makes them an ideal size for children.   Allergy Advise The allergy advise for Cadbury Mini Animal biscuits appears on the back of both the main bag and the individual bags and is written inside a bright yellow box, it states that these biscuits contain wheat, gluten, milk, soya and that they may also contain nuts.  This information is very clearly labelled on the packaging and stands out.   Price and Availability Cadbury Mini Animals are available in most supermarkets, ours came from Tesco and the bag of 6 individual bags cost £1.49, although this may vary depending on where you purchase them from.  Personally I think these are reasonably priced.   My Opinion As I have mentioned these were bought for Jayden and he loved them and made short work of getting through the bag.  At 18 months old the biscuits were just the right size for him to be able to manage on his own and feed himself with them, also they amount you got in each bag was just right, Jayden loves his food and would eat however many you gave him but with the small individual bags he has a measured portion and cannot eat too many at once.   The biscuits are reasonably priced and in my opinion worth the money.  I would definitely recommend Cadbury Mini Animal biscuits to anyone looking for a tasty treat for their child as part of a balanced diet and I would definitely purchase them again in the future.

      good treat for kids

      Cadbury mini animals, these are animal shaped mini biscuits covered one side with Cadbury milk chocolate. The biscuit and the creamy milk chocolate together taste delicious. A 200gm packet contains 8 mini packets of 25 gm each. Each 25 gm packet contains ten animal shaped biscuits which are covered with Cadbury milk chocolate. The packaging comes in a beautiful purple colour with animal pictures on it. The eight mini bags are also purple colour with individual animal picture on them. The animal characters are given names. They are 'Mojo' the Monkey, 'Leroy' the Lion, 'Gemma' the Elephant, 'Tiff' the Tiger, 'Zippo' the Hippo. Interesting facts about these animals are given in the backside of the 200gm packet. Good thing is this product does not contain artificial flavours, artificial colours and is free from hydrogenated fats. These are suitable for vegetarians. They displayed the information 'May contain nuts' so it may not be suitable for people with nut allergy. Each 25 gm bag contains: 120kcal 1.7 gm protein 17.1 gm carbohydrate (of which sugars 7.1gm) 5.0 gm fat (of which saturates 2.5gm) 0.5 gm fibre 0.06 gm sodium My kid loves them, and these are always present in my house. I recently bought them in Iceland. A 200 gm packet cost me one pound. I took these packets to picnic recently and children picked these first, although there were many delicious treats for them their. My child birthday is approaching near and I plan to use these Cadbury mini animals for filling party bags as kids love them. I always have a mini packet in my handbag to give it to my kid when we are out and about. A mini bag contains 7.1 gm sugar which is okay for one bag but may not be good to give more mini bags at a time to children. I recommend these Cadbury mini animals (only one bag at a time) and give it a five star rating.

        DID YOU HAVE THESE AS A CHILD?

        Cadbury is a well known confectionary brand which has recently been taking over by Kraft. *Product* Here we have Cadbury Mini Animals which are mini animal shaped biscuits which as half covered in Cadbury milk chocolate. They contain no artificial flavours or colours and are suitable for adults and children. *Packaging* The animal biscuits come in small purple bags. The image on the front of each bag may vary but my packs have Gemma the Elephant. The brand and product name is also on the front. The back of the pack has the ingredients, nutritional information and some blurb about Cadbury. The packs can be recycled. The mini bags are then placed in a larger purple bag. The front of the big bag has various animal images alongside the brand and product name. The back has the same information as the small packets. We are also introduced to the animal characters including Mojo Monkey, Leroy Lion, Tiff Tiger and Zippo Hippo. *Biscuits* The animal biscuits themselves are shaped like the individual animals. The are a brown, cookies sort of colour and there is a thin layer of creamy chocolate on the underside of the biscuit. They are hard to the touch though once popped in your mouth, they disintegrated nicely into a soft biscuit. *Ingredients and Allergy Advice* Wheat Flour , Milk Chocolate (23%) (Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Dried Skimmed Milk, Milk Fat, Dried Whey, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin)) , Vegetable Fat , Sugar , Partially Inverted Sugar Syrup , Glucose Syrup , Fat-Reduced Cocoa , Salt , Raising Agents (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate) , Flavouring . May contain traces of nuts. These are suitable for vegetarians. *Nutrition* Each pack contains 25g 100g contains 480 kcal 68.2g sugar 20.1g fat So basically 4 packs of 25g makes up the above values..hmm not very good! *Availability and Price* The multi-pack contains 8 x 25g bags of biscuits. Asda current price £1 regular price £1.34 Tesco current price £1 until 1st June normally price £1.39 *My Opinion* I enjoy Cadbury chocolate as I feel it is excellent quality and very tasty. These Chocolate Animal Biscuits are ones that I remember fondly from my childhood as I believe they used to come in cardboard boxes as well as bags. My most recent purchase of these was for my son's 2nd birthday party as there would be 4 children in total. Here is my opinion! The little bags are ideal sizes for children and there are approx 10 mini animals per bag. The different animal shapes are very defined and would certainly be appealing to young children. They are a nice size for toddlers or young children to hold neatly in their hands though the chocolate melts quite quickly. Although hard on the outset, these soon soften but of course children should still be watched whilst eating. Now this is where I feel a tad conned..the description states that the biscuits are half covered in chocolate but I found that the majority were only around 25% topped and some others showed less than this. Nevertheless, the biscuit is sweet and has nice crunch til it softens and the chocolate for what there is of it is very creamy like that of chocolate buttons. The combination works well together. Now the sugar is bordering overload so really 1 pack each or else you will have some hyper, sugar fuelled kids! I gave my niece and nephew a pack each and they very much enjoyed the design and taste of them. My son and my youngest nephew are only toddlers so they shared a pack and looked satisfied with the outcome of their party treat. The rest of the bags were left to the adults and I was impressed but felt more chocolate would be welcomed greatly. These are great for snacks if you are out and about as you can give one at a time out the bag and save the rest for later. Also perfect for party bags! £1 a pack is a great price for a quality brand and one I recommend. Thanks for reading :)

          Scrummy!

          Even though I am watching my weight at the moment, I do allow myself the occasional indulgence, as I'm sure you've noticed by the fact that my Weight Watchers reviews are interspersed with reviews on chocolate and cake! One of my favourite little treats is a packet of Animal Biscuits. You can buy a large box of Animal Biscuits if you wish, but I chose to buy my Animal Biscuits in multipacks of the mini biscuits (which are about half the size of full size Animal Biscuits). The multipacks contain 8 bags which weight 25 grams each. At Asda they cost £1.10 but are currently on offer for 3 for £3. You can also sometimes pick them up at the pound shop. The biscuits are all in the shapes of animals such as monkeys, elephants and hippos. This should definitely appeal to children and makes a good educational opportunity as you can talk to them about the features of each animal. There is also usually an animal fact on each bag. I do find that the animals can be hard to distinguish from each other sometimes but that is probably due to the fact that they are so little! Each animal is made of a sort of biscuit that tastes a bit like a firm shortcake or a light digestive, and then it is covered by chocolate on one side. I always suck the chocolate off first in my mouth and then crunch up the biscuit. The taste is great although the chocolate could be a little thicker in my opinion! I think there are just enough biscuits in each bag to fill you up and they are great to take on journeys with you or in packed lunches as they provide a sugar and chocolate fix but aren't too heavy or sickly. In each tiny biscuits there are 10 calories and 0.5 grams of fat. In 100 grams there are 480 calories and 20.1 grams of fat. This works out at 120 calories and around 5 grams of fat per little 25 gram packet. This isn't actually too bad in my opinion and although the fat content is a bit high there are far worse biscuits and snacks that you could haven, so I think these are alright to treat yourself to every now and then!

            Keep for a treat

            I love these biscuits so I was really pleased to find 8 mini bags for sale for £1 in my local discount shop. They remind me of being a child at Christmas time as we always used to have a box of them. The outer packaging is purple and metallic with pictures of cartoon animals on it. The individual bags are similar, mine had a picture of Tiff Tiger on it and very lovely eye lashes and green eye shadow she has too. The mini bags are 25g each and each bag contains 120Kcal, 1.65g of protein, 17.05g of carbohydrates and 5g of fat. That does seem like quite a lot of fat for such a small bag. They are suitable for vegetarians but may contain traces of nuts so are not suitable for people with nut allergies. The biscuits are described as animal shaped mini biscuits half covered in milk chocolate. I had 10 biscuits in my bag which is a nice amount for a snack. They smell really nice when you open the bag too. The biscuit side is shaped into an animal and is really crunchy but will melt in your mouth if you let it. The chocolate tastes nice but these is only a thin coating of it so a brief taste is all you get. The chocolate does compliment the biscuit well. The pack is definitely aimed at children and is just the right size for them (or a snack for adults) but the fat content would put me off giving them to children too often.

            great for shutting the kids up

            my mum bought these for my niece and nephew from Sainsburys and after getting roped in to babysit i soon dug them out to shut them up for five minutes. After their second pack each there was a couple left after for me to try! yay. there not as nice as i remembered but i think thats just a bit of nostalgia playing tricks on my mind. they are perfectly adequate little chocolate biscuits, which are shaped like animals. the more exotic kind from what i can tell (no donkeys here!). the pack holds 25 grams, which is perfect for little kids and you can always have two if you're an adult (or a greedy kid), the packet which holds 8 little packs cost £1.20 which is a really good deal. the biscuits are foiled wrapped in a nice shiny purple pack. obvoiusly being chocolate they're not great for you and each mini pack contains 120 calories and around 5 grams of fat. so dont over indulge too much. a nice simple chocolate covered biscuit great for shutting the kids up for 5 minutes!

              Cadbury's chocolate covered cookie/biscuit animals

              I bought a packet of these to use at my son's 6th birthday party yesterday. Inside of emptying them out into dishes and letting 10 hyperactive kids loose on some chocolate covered cookie biscuits, we gave them out as prizes for winning games, telling them they had to keep them and take them home. Considerate, huh? I bought a decent sized bag. You get 8 mini bags of these animal shaped choc biscuits that are more like cookies really. Each bag has an animal theme to it, such as Gemma Elephant, Mojo Monkey, Leroy Lion, Tiff Tiger and Zippo Hippo (obviously had trouble with names for Hippos there, then!). Each mini pack is 25g, which is just right for a snack sized treat, and what I like about these is that you get a little choc, a bit more cookie (probably about 8 in each packet) and they're made appealing to kids by the animals on them. They're all the same shape, with the image of the animal on them, and the packet itself is quite colourful, appealing and reflective with the wrapping. Nutritionally, each packet has 120 calories, and 17g or so of carbs, of which 7g are sugar. They taste really nice, and crumble easily in your mouth without doing so in the paccket itself. It's hard to just stop at eating one packet at a time as well, as they are really tasty, with the Cadbury's quality chocolate balancing well with some tasty and quality biscuit. The biscuit itself is not advertised as a cookie, but it's got that kind of solid yet crumbly consistency that cookies do, and so I regard them as a cookie. They're chunky as opposed to thin, and it's easy to scoff a whole packet and want more. The back of the packet actually gives you some facts about the animal involved (although there is no 'actual' animal invovled, is you see what I mean). For example, it tells you about a lion's eyesight being really good, or a hippo having a huge mouth. So, they're attempting to be informative at the same time as providing a nice treat snack for your kids as well. Overall, I recommend these. Cadbury's tend to do things really well, and this is no exception. I liked the taste and packaging and texture, and will probably get them again. At £1 for a packet of 8 x 25g packets as well is a really good price. Recommended.

                Worth a try.

                I tend to refer to these as 'animal biscuits,' and animal biscuits have been around for as long as I can remember, I can even recall having them in my packed lunch in first school, so there definitely not a new thing! The packaging is a purple foil packet that's sealed very tightly and is sometimes hard to pull open! Its about the size a packet of cards, maybe a bit bigger. It weighs 25g and this means there is around 10 individual small biscuits in the packet. On the packet you see the name of the product and pictures of animals on the front, these are supposed to be the sort of animals that are in the packet and helps it to appeal to kids as they have started to name the animals now, eg Zippo Hippo. On the back of the packet you can see the ingredients and the nutritional information. The actual biscuits are very simple, one side is chocolate and one side is biscuit. The side with the biscuit is shaped into an animal with different sections. The chocolate is just normal cadbury's chocolate, very nice and it helps it appeal to children as they do seem to prefer biscuits with chocolate! The biscuit is comparable to digestive as it has the same sort of taste and texture but it is very dry! They are available in most supermarkets such as Asda and Tesco, and once I was amazed to see them being sold in a pub! For multipacks its generally around £1 for 8 packs which is quite good value. They are great for a pack lunch because of the convenience just grabbing them from the cupboard, and are also good for an easy quick snack.

                A great lunch box filler and not too many calories.

                Cadbury Mini Animals are a long term favourite of mine, I used to buy these for my girls lunch boxes while they were at school, and often found myself taking a packet to work for a snack. The packaging is standard Cadbury colours, of rich purple with the animals on the bags. Each bag is heat sealed and contains 25 grams (approximately), in the multi pack you get eight mini packs. Cadbury have since changed the packaging and in my view gone a bit over the top, they have now named all the animals, there is: Mojo Monkey Leroy Lion Gemma Elephant Tiff Tiger Zippo Hippo I used to like the old style packaging with the animals on the front in a jungle or rain forest, now it is mainly purple and very much like the buttons packaging with a big picture of one animal on the front of the individual bags. I wish they wouldn't change things when there is no need. I really like biscuits and chocolate and together these are appealing to both adults and children because of the shapes and patterns, it turns something quite basic in to something fun. My daughters always used to play around with these and pretend to be the animals before eating them. Each bags contains between 8-9 bicsuits, these have a flat side that is covered in chocolate and the on the other side is a shaped biscuit in the form of an animal. It isn't half and half in terms of chocolate / biscuit ratio but the chocolate just takes the edge of the small biscuits. Each shape is about an inch both width and height, they are only half a centimetre thick. The biscuit is fairly dry, I do find if I am eating them all at once then I need a drink, if I am picking at them for a while then I tend not to need one, but I would say they are quite dry overall. The chocolate does definitely break up the biscuit taste and enhances the flavours. These cost £1.00 in Asda for the multi bag containing eight bags. This is better value for a lunch box filler, I get 3 bags through the week for me as well as one a school day for my eldest. The Nutritional Information: (per bag) Energy kJ - 505 kJ Kcal - 120 kcal Carbohydrates of sugars - 7.1 grams Fat of which saturates - 2.5 grams
