      I am a big fan of Cadbury's, so when I saw the 'Crunchie Nuggets' I was very excited to try them! I bought them at a supermarket for around £2, which I thought was really good for a big bag. The 'Crunchie Nuggets' come in the usual coloured packet of gold and purple and they come in a plastic packeging which helps to keep them fresh. However, I do wish that they had the sticker on the back like the other 'share' nags of sweets that you can buy because they help to seal the bag if you cannot eat them all in one go. The 'Crunchie Nuggets' themselves are a variety of different sizes and they are just like the normal crunchie: for example, they are honeycomb covered in delicious milk chocolate. The honeycomb on the inside is a golden colour and is quite sweet; this is the crunchie part of the 'Crunchie nuggets'. The golden honeycomb is covered in a sweet and milky Cadbury's chocolate. I thought that the bag is great to share even thought I didn't want to and they are quite sweet. I'm a fan of the normal crunchie bars and thought that this take on them was different and very good. I was feeling quite adventurous so I thought I would try a few with vanillia ice cream which was very nice! but they also great to eat by themselves. I think that the Crunchie nuggets are overall another amazing product made by Cadbury!

        as nice as crunchies and little different

        I am a great fan of cadbury crunchie bars and so when I saw a bag od lumps of them coated in chocolate I thought " why not ? ". While cynics might suggest that these are merely a way of cadburys getting rid of bits broken of in the process of making crunchie bars I could not in fact care either way. The nuggets consist of lumps ( the titular nuggets ) of honey comb akin to that found inside of cadbury's crunchie bars. Which are coated in delicious cadbury milk chocolate. Their taste is fairly similar to a crunchie bar ( obviously as they contain the same components ). The main differences are the proportion of chocolate to crunchie and the size. In the nuggets there is a higher proportion of chocolate which i actually prefer. There is also a size difference which i am ironically indifferent to

        great chocolate product

        The crunchy nuggets are among one of my favourites and one of my first choices for a big cinema bag of chocolate when I go to watch a movie. They are basically little nuggets of the inside of the crunchie coated in Cadbury milk chocolate. The crunchy centre is the same as the actual crunchy chocolate bars so its that really nice golden coloured crunchy honeycomb centre that tastes fantastic. However I think with these little nuggets it tastes even better than with the crunchy bar as your getting more chocolate to honeycomb as I find the actual big crunchy bars are a bit over powering on the honeycomb. These are a great bobbly shape and all of them are different shapes and sizes so it's a real treat when you get a big one to eat, the Cadbury dairy milk chocolate topping these off goes really well with the honeycomb too making these even nicer. They are about £1.50 most places for a big bag of these and you do get a lot in a bag as well, there great to share and most people I know love these which is good, but not if you want them all for your self. However at cinemas these are around £3 so make sure you buy them at a supermarket or somewhere else first.

          Nicer than the crunchie bar.

          Cadburys is by far my favorite brand of chocolate. It really tatses like no other and they seem to effortlessy be able to transfer that magic to all types of food that they do. I really enjoy crunchie bars, that combination of honeycomb and cadburys chocolate really go amazingly together. For me the only downside is that the ratio of honeycomb to chocolate was a little high to be perfect. I was excited when I saw these in the shop as I thought they might be the amazing alternative. Cadburys crunchie nuggets come in a shiney foil bag. They have a crunchie explosion on the front with the traditional purple edging and the crunchie logo from the normal bars. The bag opens easily to give the contents inside, not like some other packaging which, in opening you end up ruining the contents. I am not sure if the packaging is recyclable. The only downside is that it is not resealable which is a pain as I never seem to want to eat them all in one go (well I do want to, I just shouldn't...) The packet is full of different shaped chocolate type rocks. The chocolate outer coating is thick, which is good and the honeycombe inside tastes amazing. They have got the ratio of honeycombe to chocolate just right in my opinion. Overall the tatse is great and these are nice and easy to snack on. In my opinion they are nicer than the crunchie bar.

            OK product

            These were on special offer the other day in Sainsbury down to £1 for a large bag rather than the usual retail price of £1.60. I do like tormal crunchie bar and while these are nice enough after eating them I would still rather have the normal variety or the large cadbury diary milk 230g bars with bits of crunchie blended into the chocolate. These are small irregular nugget shapes of varying size and shape and on the outside is a layer of smooth cadbury milk chocolate and inside you have the dark yellow almost orange honeycomb which is basically sugar. They are quite solid and crunchy when you bite into them and I like to let the chocolate melt in my mouth leaving the honeycomb to then melt itself. They have a very sweet taste just like a normal crunchie. They are nice enough but the honeycomb centre does tend to stick in your teeth and to be honest they are a bit fiddly to eat as some of the pieces are very small while others are much larger and substantial. Nice enough but I'm not sure I would spend the full rrp on them in the future.

              Delicious product, one for all ages!

              I purchased this product from my local Tesco for around £1.40 for a 200g bag. I am such a fan of Cadbury's chocolate & the Crunchie bar that I just had to give these a try! The bag is purple at the top and has a hang tab which means that these are often hanging up with M&M's etc in my local garage and very convenient to grab them as I walk past to pay for my goods! (SO tempting for a chocaholic like me!!!) Once you open the bag you are met with lots of little shapes of varying shapes and sizes, which is delicious honeycomb (like that found inside a crunchie) covered in just as gorgeous Cadburys milk chocolate. You will find small ones (my favourite) and larger pieces which are mainly honeycomb. I personally prefer to have this product covered with ice cream and chocolate sauce but then I'm a total pig at the best of times! One packet is just a little too much but I can always manage to polish it off in one helping (with help from my fiance!), I'm sure if the packet was larger then I would try and save some for another time, but then again if it was smaller I'm sure that it just wouldn't seem like enough! Anybody who is a fan of honeycomb, chocolate or both of these will absolutely adore these sweets! The smell that hits you when you open the bag is absolutely divine and it's definitely one of my favourite chocolates available in the Cadburys range. I do find this product fairly hard to find if I am not in my local garage or in my local Tesco so I would definitely advise picking these up wherever you can find them! I would recommend this product, a must for any fans of the Crunchie bar! Whilst the price is a little high for confectionery this is definitely something that is worth your money! (Go on - get out and buy some!)

                Yum. That is all.

                Do you like Crunchie bars? Do you like chocolate? Can you imagine what teeny tiny bits of Crunchie with extra chocolate taste like? Well, let me tell you...it is de-licious! From the moment you set eyes on this inviting, beautiful little bag of joy just hanging there innocently amongst the other chocolates, you realise what it is...it's the look, the taste...of pure chocolate love. No other hanging bags of confectionary stand out like this one...Nor do they look so tempting, so unique. You just have to have it. It's like a fashion accessory in chocolate form. You are instantly cooler than the masses who purchase the standard Dairy Milk or Crunchie. You have something more unique, more powerful, more delicious. That, that is beautiful. It gets even better when it's on a buy two for two pounds offfer...but those my friends are rare, even rarer than this wee rare treat itself. Pros: - Delicious Cons: - Not cheap per 100g - Not widely stocked - if you see it. BUY IT NOW or forever hold your peace.

                  Disadvantages

                  fantastic

                  TASTE The taste of this chocolate is absolutely taste tantalizing which is a good thing in fact it is a very good thing. The taste is delicious because as soon as you put the chocolate in your mouth you can taste the pure tasting chocolate and at the same instant of which you bite it you can also taste the lovely and appetizing taste of the crunchie flavor. The unique thing about this chocolate is that the taste differs from all of the other dairy milk products but remember that is not a bad thing, it also is recommended from me because in ot her dairy milk products you can never taste crunchiness but in this snack you can. When ever i eat this i can never stop and thats the truth, the taste is that good it always keeps making me come back for more and more until i have stuffed my self to the point where i can not eat any more. i am going to give this a 10/10 because the taste and addictiveness is superb. TASTE=10/10 SMELL As soon as i open the wrapper i can smell 2 flavors and those 2 flavors are the chocolate of course and the richness of the crunchy. The smell of the crunchy is different from the others and that to me gives this the advantage of becoming one of the worlds best possible smelling chocolate. Even from a distance of quite a few feet you can still smell the textures in the air which came from the chocolate, this feature definantly has given it the edge of being more powerful in smell than most chocolates. I am going to rate this a 10/10 on smell purely because of the fact the smell of the chocolate can travel more farer than most chocolates. SMELL=10/10 QUALITY/QUANTITY This chocolate is definantly more in the lines of a quality chocolate than a quantity chocolate because ........... QUALITY= I love the taste of this chocolate and i am sure most of you do as well purely because of the fact that cadbury have been around for ages and know the best recipes to make their chocolates the best on the markets. Also the taste is delicious because as soon as you put the chocolate in your mouth you can taste the pure tasting chocolate and at the same instant of which you bite it you can also taste the lovely and appetizing taste of the crunchie flavor. QUANTITY= When ever i buy this chocolate i find that there is never enough chocolate for my liking surely cadbury could have tried much harder to increase the amount of chocolate. I found that in this chocolate there was a lower amount of chocolate used than in other chocolates and those other chocolates had much more chocolate in them. I am going to rate this 8/10 on QUALITY/QUANTITY because i really liked the quantity but the only down fall was the quantity. QUALITY/QUANTITY=8/10 PACKAGING The packaging is superb (absolutely superb), this is possibly one of the trademarks that allow this chocolate to be much better and more widespread in the world. I like the effects of the colours and how they have been used, i like the mix of the yellow and purple colours because it makes their opposite colours stand out more and this in turn makes the image stand out more. I agree to my self that in all cadbury pictures that the images are good because they appeal and stand out more to the human eye which makes this chocolate more desirable. Also when you look at the cover design you can tell exactly if the chocolate you are about to eat is going to be a good one or a bad one, this chocolate is definantly a great one and is the best wrapper i have seen in along time. I am going to rate this a 10/10 for PACKAGING because the design is absolutely great. PACKAGING=10/10 PRICE The price is definantly good because in every corner shop you go to you can buy this for about 40p-42p which is slightly lower than most of the chocolate bars on the market today. In supermarkets like morrisons, tescos, Iceland, asdas e.t.c.. you can buy all of this in different amounts of quantities which can also mean that you get more for your money. The price is not like any other chocolate bar but that is not a bad thing and I'm just glad that the price for a bar isn't higher. I am going to rate this a 10/10 on price because the price is not too high and you can also get more for your money. PRICE=10/10 I really do think that this chocolate has the potential to be even more bigger and more better, if only cadbury could increase the amount of chocolate this could be one of the most best chocolates in the whole wide WORLD!!!!

                    Variation on the Crunchie bar

                    I do try to resist but it is like the Sirens calling to Odysseus and without a faithful crew to tie me to a mast I'm lured to the chocolate aisle at Tesco despite my best intentions and I slowly succumb to the lure of the chocolate bar. I have always been a fan of Crunchie bars and so when I saw the fact that they now sold Crunchie Nuggets and that two bags were on offer for £1.60 I decided to take the plunge. Each bag is 150g in size which is an annoying amount for a glutton like me because eating enough to satisfy my craving means that there is not a lot left in the bag so hence I convince myself I might as well polish them off and then I feel ill, now I could share them with the fruits of my loins I hear you say but what would be the point as it would only lead to tooth decay and obesity, no in my sacrifice I'm saving them to die from global warming and the water wars that are coming soon to a country near you. So to the product, well these are small irregular shapes of milk chocolate with the Crunchie honeycomb filling on the inside, the pieces vary in shape or size with some really small pieces that are the size of a garden pea if not slightly smaller up to pieces that are bigger than two squares of chocolate. The inside is not solid honeycomb rather it is small chunks surrounded by chocolate, imagine the Crunchie bar without the chocolate coating and then smashed into bits which are then covered in chocolate however some bits stick together to make a larger piece. Overall you get more chocolate eating them this way and the fact that the taste of Cadbury dairy milk is one I like this is a good thing. The honeycomb centre has a hard texture and is very crisp when you bite into it. The flavour is very sweet with a slight bubbling sensation in the mouth from the honeycomb centre. It is quite nice to let them melt in your mouth so that the chocolate melts away and then you are left with the honeycomb which will have a smooth side to it and also the ridged texture of the inside. I like to eat them this way but then I also put my chocolate in the freezer before eating it so allowing it to melt makes it ore enjoyable. Overall this product represents good value at 80 pence a packet while on special offer but I would not pay the normal retail price which in my Tesco is £1.04 as I did not find it as enjoyable as a normal bar of Crunchie or the 230 gram bars of Dairy Milk with Crunchie pieces in them, both of these are better products in my opinion. Thanks for reading and rating my review.

                      Disadvantages

                      Very tasty sweets

                      I like to do quite a bit of baking, and chocolate cake has always been the number one choice in our house for everyone's favourite cake. I like to put different toppings on the top of the icing on the cake, like smarties or crumbled flake. Recently when I was doing the shopping I noticed these bags of Cadbury's Crunchie Nuggets on the shelf and thought it would make a good topping for a cake. They are honeycomb chunks of differing sizes that are smothered in delicious Cadbury's chocolate. Sadly, I've never actually managed to make my crunchie nugget chocolate cake. The reason for this is because every time I buy a bag of nuggets, I can't stop myself from opening them and before I know it I've munched the whole packet away! These little beauties are ridiculously addictive and should come with some sort of health warning. I can't recommend them highly enough (unless of course you're on a diet, then you should avoid them like the plague!!)

                        Disadvantages

                        This year saw a change to my usual Mothers Day gifts. Instead of the usual flowers and chocolates the kids presented me with a gift bag full of little bits and pieces; a bottle of perfume, Body Shop stuff, a glossy mag, a bar each of Green & Blacks and Lindt chocolate and a bag of Cadbury's Crunchie Nuggets. This last one was a bit of a mystery. I'm not a Crunchie lover at the best of times finding it too sugary sweet and not chocolatey enough and everyone in the house knows it, so why??? Five minutes later the mystery's solved when Alice tells me she chose the nuggets. While Charlotte (at seven) suggested the Green & Blacks that she knows I love, it's easy to see why a little person who's just turned five would pick a bag of these nuggets up. The bag just looks 'fun', in keeping with the colours of a traditional Crunchie bar the bag is a riot of gold and shiny purple with the words Crunchie Nuggets made to look as though they're bursting out of the front of the bag. To be honest, as soon as I realised they were Crunchie pieces I stuck them back in the bag ready to give them Mark to take to work. Because it was Mothers Day Mark cooked the dinner and I thought I might as well give them a try and save my 'nice' choccie for sitting in front of the tele later. Not *really* for the dieters among us as a 160g bag will set you back 728 cals and 26g fat, this is assuming you eat the whole bag to yourself of course! Nothing untoward in the ingredients list apart from a solitary E number (E442) and lots and lots of sugar in its various guises - I think I can live with that! So what's a Crunchie Nugget when it's at home then? Open the bag and you're confronted with lots of irregular shaped erm... nuggets. There's nothing uniform about them as they range from chocolate covered peanut size to sugared almond size, no two pieces are the same with knobbles in all sorts of places! The only thing I ca n liken the appearence of Crunchie Nuggets to is those boxes of 'Reindeer Droppings' you can buy at Christmas time, but the nuggets are bigger. Because each nugget is coated in Cadbury's wonderful milk chocolate you get a delicious chocolate aroma as you open the bag, smells a lot more chocolate based than a Crunchie bar which just tends to smell sweet. Based on the look and smell I'm now thinking I'm going to like these little chocolate morsels much more than I enjoy a bar of Crunchie. I choose one of the larger nuggets for my debut and biting into it can already sense how sweet these chocolates are going to be. The chocolate coating is much thicker than the thin layer you get on a Crunchie bar, which is a good thing. All Cadbury's milk chocolate tastes of Dairy Milk and this is no exception, it's sweet and creamy but not overly rich. The chocolate is layered thick enough to get a proper bite when eating a big nugget and layered so thickly on the smaller ones that there sometimes isn't room for the Crunchie centre! The Crunchie centre. Each nugget has a chunk of honeycomb underneath the chocolate, making them ultra sweet. The honeycomb is slightly harder to bite than a Crunchie bar but it does soften up fairly quickly. In keeping with the name the overall texture of these is crunchy with a smooth chocolate jacket. With these nuggets Cadbury's have got it just right. The main thing I dislike about Crunchie bars is the huge long slab of honeycomb wrapped in the thinnest layer of chocolate ever, the honeycomb is just too sweet to be eaten in such a large quantity. However, because the nuggets are smaller versions each one doesn't contain enough honeycomb for it to become overpoweringly sugary. Don't get me wrong, they are very sweet and considering they contain honeycomb and chocolate you can't expect them not to be. The thickness of the chocolate helps to offset some of the sweetness of the honeycomb a s the Cadbury's chocolate adds a creamy sweetness to what is otherwise a lump of hardened sugar. Personally I think they're still too sweet but that's just my personal taste, I can actually feel my back teeth starting to revolt at the whole sugary sensation while I type. If you like Crunchie bars then I bet you'll love these nuggets but if (like me) you find a Crunchie too sweet then you'll probably think the same about these. The 160g bag only cost 99p so if you want to try them you're not wasting too much cash if you don't like them, if you've got kids you won't be wasting anything because anyone under 10 seems to adore them! Must be the sugar hit... I've only seen the big bags in the supermarket but it'd be nice if Cadbury's started selling them in smaller Malteasers sized bags because these things are so moreish you'll find yourself muching through the 160g worth and that's when the sugar overload sensation on your teeth happens. Thanks for reading.

                          Yesterday with Barry having a day off, I managed to persuade him to come with me into town to help with Christmas shopping. We managed to get quite a large chunk of it to to help recharge our batteries while we trudged back to the car we decided a chocolate bar was called for. As we browsed through the extensive range of goods on offer, Barry suggested we share something. Share? How dare he even think that. Anyway, I relented and we finally settled on a bag of Cadbury Crunchie Nuggets having never tried them before. Quite how this particular chocolate treat had never been scoffed by me before is anyone's guess, so now seemed a good time as any to make up for lost time. Cadbury Crunchie Nuggets, as the name suggests are small morsels of honeycomb covered in the luscious, sweet, creamy milk chocolate we all know and love. They can be found alongside other sweets and chocolates that are displayed on hangers. As with all Cadbury's packaging, the outer wrapper of the nuggets is very bright and eye-catching. The rich, almost velvety looking purple we associate with Cadbury's makes up the background colour with an explosion of gold, yellow and chocolate brown taking centre stage. The wording on the packet is in bright red on a yellow background to help it stand out. To help keep the chocolate fresh, the wrapper is made from foil and it is very easy to open. Unlike those awful plastic packets from yesteryear the wrapper doesn't split so easily so you don't have to worry about losing any of your treasure. As soon as the packet is opened that oh so sweet smell of Cadbury's chocolate wafts up into your nasal cavities and makes your mouth water in anticipation. I can just make out the aromatic scent of honeycomb as well so it smells just like the Cadbury's Crunchie Bar that I love. I pick out a nugget and it reminds me of a small peanut M and M, or even a chocolate covered raisin. It's about the same size and shape. Barry suddenly snaps at me to stop staring at the sweet and to just pop it in my mouth. As I do, I can feel the velvety smooth chocolate begin to melt. The layer of chocolate is just right, not too thick and nowhere near sparse. Eventually I reach the honeycomb centre. It tastes sweet almost like burnt toffee. Chocolate and honeycomb were made for each other as eating these prove. I decide to chew my second one and my teeth sink into the soft layer of chocolate until they strike the hard, crunchy honeycomb. Eating a normal Crunchie Bar takes a bit of effort as the honeycomb centre can be quite hard, and I don't know about you, but as much as I love the bars I do find them a bit sickly. Because the piece of honeycomb in the nuggets are smaller it makes eating them far too easy and before you know it the whole bag is finished. Cadbury's still haven't come up with a fat or calorie free chocolate yet, so as you would expect these Crunchie Nuggets are laden with both. If you don't want to know just how bad these are for you, then close your eyes. For every 100g of these bugger nuggets there are 17.1g of fat and 460 calories (Noooo!) So you have been warned. The excuse I have for eating these is that we have just finished a mammoth shopping expedition. Loads of calories were burnt off wrestling through other shoppers who insist on gathering right outside shop doorways for a gossip. Why do they do that? There are a few groups of people who cannot enjoy these sweets. Awww! Those who are lactose intolerant, they're not for you. If you have a nut allergy, then forget it. There is a chance that these contain traces of nuts. Good news for vegetarians there are no animal products in Crunchie nuggets and they are also gluten free. For more information there is an address you can write to: Cadbury Ltd PO Box 7010 Bournville Birmingham B30 2PZ Alternatively, log onto www.cadburyworld.co.uk where you can drool over the whole product range, enter competitions, and for kids there are loads of activities which might keep them out of mischief for a little while. My 200g bag of nuggets came from a local papershop and it cost me £1.50. Supermarkets have them and they retail at about £1.25. Tesco actually have them on promotion at 2 for £2.

                            Today is a great day for me, fellow consumers, as this marks my first ever food op! Wahey! I don't know if i am allowed to comment on other ops here, but let's throw caution to the wind and defy convention... Deano's reference to them being rabbit turds is a bit innacurate! I don't profess to be an expert in the field (do you get it, where you find rabbit droppings...) but these nuggets are much, well, much... crunchier that rabbit droppings. Otherwise Deano, spot on, rabbit droppings with taste. I must apologise for that rather crude sidetracking... Cadburys have had to radicalise their products, to attract new consumers (us). Gone are the days when people were happy with a stick of chocolate. Now companies have had to introduce flakes, swirls, shots and now, the most recent...the nugget. To be more precise the "Cadburys Crunchie Nugget". To start off with i should talk about the packaging/look of these crunchies, so you will be able to recognise them. They are sealed in a foil bag, which is purple and gold. You can see this gold, assumably the honeycomb centre, exploding from the bleak brown backdrop (assumably the chocolate). There is CRUNCHIE NUGGETS written in "wacky", ununiform text. I think, therefore that it is the wacky young population that this product is trying to target. So let's look at what we have got here, an explosive blast of honey that emerges from a chocolatey exterier. And that's pretty much spot on. Opening the aforementioned packet is like opening the doors to a chocolatey heaven. You are greeted by that cadburys aroma we have all grown to know and love. Some knobbly balls of chocolate are revealed to your greedy eyes, they resemble little metiorites. Despite the new marketing gimmick, Cadburys have not sacraficed that quality traditional crunchie taste. They have also managed to achieve a perfect balance between the layer of chocolate and the amount of crunchie in each l ittle knobble. Despite this, as with crunchie bars, the nuggets can get a bit sickly; while writing this i am on my second bag (i have to buy these things in order to give an accurate review, you see!) and my opinion is changing slightly. How you eat them, is of course up to you. I have tried various techniques. There is the "old school" technique of "crunching that crunchie", causing a greater intensity of taste, but having the terrible side effect of bits of crunch in your teeth, waiting to be scraped out later by a dirty fingernail! If you can master the "textbook": suck off the chocolate, then proceed to the honeycomb centre and repeat, method, you're laughing all the way to the dentist, and probably crying all the way back! This leads me on to the effects that nobody likes to think about when muchin' on a crunchie: the health. This packet carries a pretty severe calorie count: 910 to be precise. These take hours on a exercise bike to burn off. An overall 6% of everything you eat from this packet is fat, man's enemy. This is why i have put "ditto" under the disadvantages, they are so tasty and moreish, that you just watch the belly grow! Another little health warning is for those with nut allergies... it may contain traces of nut. I never really understand how these traces get there, maybe someone could tell me in a comment? Of course the price has a large part to play in the desirability of this product. For a 200g bag of nuggets one wouldst expect to part with about £1.20. I have seen these being sold though for a whopping £2.50, i mean come on! The value i think seems reasonable. You are buying a quality product, and though there is obvious profit to be made for Mr Cadbury, you can be safe in the knowledge that you have not been too ripped off. So then, i think i have covered all of my posts in a chocolate layer, so its time to round up. (I have just noticed that i needn& #39;t have described the packet, as you can see it at the top of the page, DOH!) Anyhoo, if you like chocolate, and the sweet taste of that mysterious honeycomb centre, then why not give the nuggets ago. You lose £1.20, but on the other hand you gain 910 calories. You might even say you lose pounds to gain pounds. mmm?? Now and again we all have to indulge in the greater pleasures in life, and i think that this would have to be one of them. Here is my advice to you: by all means buy this product, but only as an occasional treat!

                              Now here's a brilliant idea if ever there was one! A bag full of little nuggets of one of my favourite chocolate bars - Crunchie! God bless the person who thought of this idea - may he, or indeed she, live long and die happy! Sorry, I'm getting carried away aren't I? OK, own up, which of you said 'We should be so lucky!' Tough luck I only meant metaphorically (incidentally I managed to spell that without the use of the spell check!) Anyway, enough of this waffle, lets get down to business so to speak. Crunchie Nuggets are exactly that; nuggets of that lovely Crunchie honeycomb covered in Cadbury's milk chocolate, which incidentally is THE best chocolate in the world! In fact they are like little tiny Crunchies the size of my thumbnail, perfect for just popping in your mouth. The taste is just as good as the original Crunchie as the chocolate dissolves and the honeycomb just melts in your mouth. The advantage of being so small is that you can have as much or as little as you want. If, like me you find a full sized bar a bit too much, then these are definitely for you. You will spot them easily as they come in a foil bag in the same colours as the wrapper on a standard Crunchie bar, which is purple and gold with red writing. As they're in a bag you'll find them hanging up alongside things like lemon bonbons, liquorice allsorts and chocolate éclairs. The bag weighs 200g and costs in the region of £1.25, at least that's how much I paid in Tesco's. Just to bring some kind of balance to this opinion and to temper the enthusiasm for this wonderful product I thought I had better mention that they contain 455 calories per 100g, that's a whopping 910 calories in each pack. Granted you probably wouldn't eat the whole pack in one go (would you??), but you could easily munch your way through a bagful in the course of a day. If you're watching you r weight, that's about two thirds of your recommended daily calorie intake! As with all Cadbury's products they are covered by Cadbury's own no quibble money back guarantee. All you have to do is write to the Customer Services Manager at Cadbury Limited, PO Box 7010, Bournville, Birmingham, B30 2PZ although I have to say I can't imagine anyone being dissatisfied with these little beauties! ENJOY! Just to explain the title - living near The Great Orme in Llandudno means we often have goats wndering round the garden and they leave little presents that look just like Cruinchie Nuggets!!!! And no I haven't investigated the taste before you ask!

                                Disadvantages

                                Hmmm, I'm bored, I'm skint and I'm bloody well hung-ry (sorry bad pun), so I need to eat something and write an opinion to earn some more pennies. <Disappears for a few seconds while he rummages round his cupboards for something to write about> Aha! Hiding in the back of our unbelievably empty pantry was a packet of dried sp*nk and bogeys (parsley sauce mix), horrid sour spoggs that Mel eats and a glorious bag of Cadburiy’s Crunchie Nuggets. So, here are my findings: ////// Packaging \\\\\\ Okay, there has been some squabbling lately about the need to include the product packaging description in your opinions. Well let me put all of you perfectionists out there at ease. HOW THE FR*GGIN HELL ARE YOU GUNNER KNOW WHAT I’M WRITING ABOUT LOOKS LIKE IF I DON’T EXPLAIN IT? Christ! I could be telling you about something that you may find appealing but when you go shopping you won’t be able to tell the difference between my product a pack of recycled bog rolls. Right, rant over, here is the description, Cadbury’s Crunchie Nuggets are in a deep purple foil bag with a big gold explosion on the front and rickety red writing. The bottom of the packet is brown to symbolise the chocolate. On the back is all the usual crap, ingredients, an advertisement for Cadbury World, a block of text telling you how proud of their product they are, yaa de yaa de yaa de. ///// Taste, Look & Smell \\\\\\ Hmm? On opening the bag you are greeted with a nice sweet chocolate aroma with gets your puss tubes flowing in your mouth. The actual appearance though is a tad off putting to say the least and this then turns your puss tubes back off again. Honestly, they look like you have just driven through the countryside and collected a bag full of rabbit droppings, little brown, knobbly, lumps that would make your average hutch rabbit proud. So on to the taste, well, I like chocolate and I ju st have to remember what they are made out of as I pop one into my facial abyss to avoid making myself wince as I chew my cud. <Crunch> Mmmm, Rabbit crap aside, these taste bloody marvellous, very sweet and crunchy and so Moorish that I’m going to scoff the whole bag to myself. They are simply small pieces of the same honeycomb that you would find in a Cadbury’s crunchie bar coated thickly in Cadbury’s chocolate. So, the taste and smell are top notch and they are quite heavy for what they are as well, it’s just a shame they look like rabbit turds. \\\\\\ Price & Availability ////// Cadbury’s Crunchie Nuggets are available from almost anywhere and the prices do vary from place to place but at the moment they are on a special price direct from the manufacturers at only 99p for a large 160g bag. Now is a good time to stock up as they are usually between £1.20-£1.49 a pack. ////// Nutrition Information \\\\\\ Yes, as with all Cadbury’s choccies there is one major flaw, the calorie count. There are 455 calories in 100g of these nuggets and 16.4g of fat so if you are trying to avoid that spare tyre around your waist getting any bigger then these things are very sinful indeed. But hey, as a treat they are well nice. \\\\\\ Other Information ////// Cadbury’s Crunchie Nuggets are NOT suitable for young children as with their small size they can quite easily become lodged in a child’s throat, adult sweets only then. They may also contain nut traces so if you are allergic, then be warned before you pluck a bag off of the shelf. ////// My Final Thoughts \\\\\\ Well, if you are into chocolate in a big way, like I am, then these things are absolutely yummy but you have to remember, they are only tiny versions of Cabury’s Crunchie bars. If you bought three whole Crunchie bars, then you would have roughly the same weight as in a packet of the se but at a cost way less. They’re only a gimmicky product, so if you pay £1.49 for a bag then you are basically a total sucker and Mr Cadbury will be rubbing his filthy rich little hands together. I don’t think that at 99p though, they are quite that bad and would gladly buy them again. Or if you are really short on cash, you could always catch yourself a wild rabbit and you would have yourself an endless supply (Not sure if they would taste the same though) lol. Thanks for the read. DEANO!
