“ Brand: Cadbury's / Type: Trifle „
I would say that I like Cakes and the odd bar of Chocolate better than a Chocolate Trifle, but things like these are nice now and again. These were on offer for £1 for the pack of 3 the other month in Tesco. They normally cost around the £1.50 mark, so a bit saving is usually enough to get the wife to try something different. She likes these and has the Diet ones sometimes as well. They are in little individual pots which are 90g. The pots are plastic and have a foil lid. Looks ok, and easy to put in your bag or that to eat elsewhere. The outer part is a bit cardboard that keeps them all together. These taste nice. They aren't too sickly either. This is just made up of Chocolate Sponge, some Chocolate Mousse which is quite light and fluffy, some Chocolate Custard and some Cream on top with Chocolate shavings to finish it off. I don't have 1 to hand but think these have around 140 calories per pot and quite a bit of fat. The lighter version of these is obviously that bit better for you, but lacks the sweetness that bit. These are nice and tasty. Guess you have to like Chocolate to have these, which isn't a problem for me. I could probably eat 2 in 1 sitting, but then would be a bit sick of them. I wouldn't eat these all the time, but now and again is nice to have 1 of these.
A friend of mine came over for lunch last week and brought these Cadbury Highlights Trifles with her. We scoffed them before lunch, as we were too impatient to wait 30 minutes for the quiche to cook! They come in a pack of three, which is slightly annoying because I think it is rare that there will be three people who want one. It is so much more likely to be two or four - this is probably a ploy for you to end up buying more... but then I am a cynic. There are lots of different chocolately layers. The mousse is smooth and like melted chocolate. It is topped with fake cream. I like to mix eh layers together because I am not keen on cream on its own but my friend thought I was mad to do this. Up to you! The base has a soft chocolate biscuit texture - it is truly delicious. The various layers work really well together. They are 130 calories per pot, which is still quite high in my opinion. They are delicious though and about half the calories of many full fat chocolate trifles. For three 90g pots expect to pay about £1.40.
I bought Cadburys highlights trifle last week in ASDA on special offer of £1 for a pack of three, not bad if you fancy a treat, as they normally retail around £1.50, each 3 pack is wrapped in a cardboard sleeve to hold the pots together which has the classic Cadburys style banner around it, the pots are see-through so you can see all its layers. The pots are 90g in size. This highlights trifle is simply for chocolate lovers. Once you open a Cadbury Highlights Trifle, the more its layers entice you. First the layer of cream topping which has sugar and sweeteners, then the light bubbly reduced fat chocolate mouse which surrounds the soft cookie, which is my favourite bit, it may be light, but it is really delicious. In comparison to the Cadburys original trifles, I would say that the cream is not as nice, but for a low fat dessert it is still very tasty, and of course it low fat so they never taste quite as good in my opinion, they highlights trifle have only 130 calories per pot compared to the original trifles which has 285 calories per pot, which is a big difference for any one watching there calories. *Contains ingredients derived from the following, Gluten, Milk, Phenylalanine, Soya. *Dietary and Allergen information, not suitable for, * For any one with nut allergies, this product may contain traces of nuts, Vegetarians, Coeliacs, People with Lactose Intolerance *Nutrition Energy KJ 585, Protein 4.6, Available Carbohydrate 20.4 Of Which Sugars 14.6, Fat 4.3 Of which Saturates 2.26, Fibre 0.57, Sodium 0.05. Overall this dessert is really tasty especially for a low fat dessert, and I will certainly buy them again.
