Cadbury's chocolate mousse was a dessert I began eating when I was in my teens, and recently turned back to as a cheaper alternative to Ben and Jerry's and Haagen Dazs ice creams.
The mousse is stored in small purple plastic pot, with an easy to peel back 'lid'. The pot is small enough to keep in your lunchbox/bag, and is a treat to look forward to at lunchtime. Perhaps my only little niggle with the pot is that it is not wide enough, that some mousse is always left sticking to the bottom and sides of the pot.
Upon opening the pot, you will see a smooth top layer to the mousse, it looks similar to a yoghurt, but not as liquidy, so you can tell that it is not yoghurt. When you remove the top layer, you are faced with what looks like a frothy chocolate mousse, and it does taste a bit frothy as well. As I am not a huge fan of the froth, I tend to stir the mousse until the texture becomes smooth and creamy, and when you start eating it this way, it feels like it lasts longer than the frothy texture. The smell is sweet and chocolatey, but not very strong. The taste is quite sweet and rich enough to be a satisfying alternative to the expensive rich ice creams. However as the pot is small, you might find yourself eating 3 or 4 pots at a time, as they are very addictive.
This is a dessert that should be stored in the fridge and is best eaten cold. However if taken as a lunchtime snack and kept in a lunch box/bag, it is most likely to warm up to room temperature by lunchtime. While the mousse does not go off within this time, it does taste a bit different when not cold...and perhaps not as satisfying at room temperature. However I find that it is still something to look forward to at lunch.
The chocolate mousse is available in two forms, as the full fat mousse, and the 'light' mousse. The full fat mousse comes in a dark purple pot, while the light mousse comes in a light purple pot. If you have eaten the full fat mousse for years and then try a light mousse, you may find an ever so slightly different taste between the two. The light mousse is slightly less sweet, but it is so mild a difference, that you would only notice it if you ate either one or the other more often. Once you've had two pots of the light mousse you are unlikely to notice a difference. The light mousse looks exactly the same as the full fat mousse, and the same rules apply; if you want it frothy, eat it as is, if you would like a more creamy texture, stir it.
These are sold in most supermarkets at ninety-nine pence or a pound, and as a four pot pack.
Cadbury is a well loved brand, with lots of delicious products! I'm currently eating a cadburys light mousse and it is delicious! It comes in a pack of 4 pots and are a light purple colour.
They are currently £1.18 (same price as the full fat version). The price has gone up over recent years but then so has the price of everything else! Sometimes you will find them on special offer. I find the lower fat chocolate mousse more difficult to find than the full fat version, with only my local tesco selling them!
The mousse itself is light and fluffy and you can definately tell its cadburys from the smell and taste and if you have a sweet tooth it is the perfect thing! The mousse is quite sweet, so you wouldn't want anymore than on pot.
These pots are lower in fat than the normal ones which contain 4.5g fat and 110kcals and i dont think the taste is that much different from the full fat ones. So you might as well save some fat and calories and buy the lighter version. Each 55g pot contains:
* Fat - 1.9g
* Protein - 7.89
* Carbohydrate - 7.8g
I will continue to buy these over the full fat version as they are slightly better for you and taste just as great! I love cadburys and have yet to find something i dont like that they've made!
Cadburys have been around for a very long time and do lots of nice chocolate products and sweets and they are all very good value for money, I have a very sweet tooth and eat lots of varieties of products and I am satisfied with most of them as I am not a very fussy eater.
This chocolate mousse my wife bought as she is trying to lose a little bit of weight for the summer and I thought I would have a taste of one of them and see if I liked it too, although I would not be losing weight as I cannot give up sweets and so be waste of time for me.
There are 4 x 55g tubs in plastic tubs, with a pull off lid, they are recyclable and inside it is a light mousse that is rich in flavour and very soft on the tongue, it is so smooth and tastes delicious, it is a very good quality chocolate and it has tiny bubbles in the chocolate which looks very attractive.
Each pot contains only 60 calories, protein 2.5g, carbohydrate 7.8g and fat 1.9g, it is reduced fat which is excellent.
It is very pleasant to taste and not stodgy, it is nice and filling and very good for packed lunches and a delicious little snack.
It was priced at only 59p for the 4 tubs but it was on offer at a local food shop and it is normally priced at over 99p, and so I thought it was a very good bargain, considering it is a branded name.
It is a quality chocolate with a quality taste and I think it is suitable for anyone to give it a go, and if you can find it on offer, I think it is even better.
I rate it 5 stars.
This mousse is lovely! Ok now thats out the way I must explain that I have never tried the original full calorie version and cant compare the two but for me this is really tasty with a very strong cadbury chocolate flavour, not like a chocolate bar exactly but pretty close. But of course it should go with out saying that it's probably not as nice as the original. The mousse is light and fluffy which may help with the allusion that its the original for some people.
I bought these from Tesco's for 99p for four which I feel is a really good value making each 55 gram pot under 25p which virtually no other mousse or yoghurts are (excluding no frills type ranges).
I must say that the packaging which is a very attractive Cadburys purple (by the way) states 'Reduced Fat Milk chocolate mousse with sugar and sweeteners.' Which may not be suitable for some dieters. yet surprisingly the pot only contains 60 calories, 2.5 grams of protein, 7.8 grams of carbohydrates and only 1.9 grams of fat. which sounds ace to me!
Suitable for Coeliacs (no idea what that is), Contains Milk (haha really?!?!) and also may contain Nuts - so be warned
A great treat which I reccommend to dieters and perhaps people who have never tried the full calorie version
Cadbury's `anything` sounds good to me, I had often bought the little pots of Cadbury's chocolate mousses but I had never tried the Cadbury's light chocolate mousse.
I seem to be forever eating pots of fruit yoghurt and although the majority of them are good you sometimes just need a change.
Yet again these were another of my discount store bargains and I paid just 80p for a pack of four Cadbury's light mousses, the normal RRP is around 95p for four pots.
Each little pot of 55g contains just 60 calories, so they are a treat that you can afford to eat even if you are trying to be good, I am wondering if they are on the menu for Weight Watchers ? ( If so how many points are they worth?)
Once you have peeled back the foil lid you can instantly see that the chocolate mousse is piped into the pots, each pot has a neatly swirled heap of chocolate mousse tucked inside of it but the pot seems to be a little large for the quantity of mousse. Both the pots and the outer cardboard sleeve can be recycled.
Cadbury's have managed to create a low fat, low calorie mousse that does a good impersonation of the real McCoy. The mousse looks as though it contains plenty of chocolate and first impressions tell me that they have managed to inject plenty of air into the mixture.
We have to accept that this low calorie version is more than likely not going to taste as lush and extravagant as the full fat mousse. One thing imparticular struck me straight away, the deep swirl of chocolate mousse felt quite firm as I slid my teaspoon into it.
The mousse has a strong taste that I can only say reminds me of drinking a cup of strong cocoa, but it is a taste that I could easily adapt to and as you continue to waffle the mousse the taste becomes more acceptable. One quick look at the list of ingredients tells me that the Cadbury's light chocolate mousse contains only 5% chocolate, the remaining taste is coming from other cocoa sources. If you take a look at the list of ingredients for the `normal` Cadbury's chocolate mousse then you will see that it contains 15% chocolate, a substantial difference. Now 55g of chocolate mousse is not going to last long and it only takes a few seconds to empty the entire pot.
I feel that Cadbury's have managed to make this low calorie dessert more than acceptable, although the chocolate mousse is thick it is well aerated and it feels `light` as you eat it. I do feel though that you can tell that it is artificially sweetened but I have no issue with that at all.
The Cadbury's light chocolate mousse contains more or less half of the calories of the normal chocolate mousse, so if you are calorie concious and you can adjust to the slight change in taste and texture then you will benefit.
I have just noticed that Cadbury's use Aspartame to sweeten the light chocolate mousses and I know that many are anti-aspartame or find that the sweetener just doesn't agree with them.
The product contains milk and Cadbury's state that it is not to be eaten by anyone who suffers from a nut allergy.
The light chocolate mousse is fine for coeliacs but it does contain gelatine so that makes it unsuitable for vegetarians.
I personally found that the Cadbury's light chocolate mousse was fine, the portion is small and even if you ate two pots in one go you would still not feel too riddled with guilt.
I am a big Cadbury fan, and often treat myself to a bar of dairy milk or a bag of buttons, but sometimes I fancy a dessert treat and will buy a Cadbury trifle or better still, a Buttons twinpot!
The problem is though, these are all calorie laden treats, and with this in mind I thought I would give 'lighter options' a try.
I saw these Cadbury Light Mousse desserts priced at just 99p for 4 x 55g pots in my local Morrisons last week, and decided these would be the first 'lighter option' dessert I would try.
Taken in by the trademark Cadbury purple packaging, and the promise of only 60 calories a pot, I wondered if I had found a low calorie dessert that would taste every bit as delicious as my regular Cadbury favourites!
Cadbury Light Mousse comes in 4 x 55g plastic pots, with easy peel back lids.
On the front they are boldly advertised as only 60 calories and 1.9g fat per pot, and are described as 'Reduced fat milk chocolate mousse with sugars and sweeteners'.
I must admit I did cringe a little when I read 'sugars and sweeteners' as I thought maybe they would be far too sweet for my liking.
Although I like my chocolate, I do not put sugar in my tea/coffee, or add sugar to cereal or anything else I am eating.
When I read the ingredients I found they include quite a few E numbers as well as the sugars and sweeteners : Dextrose, Fructose and sweeteners. There is also Pork Gelatine in there, which I am not sure about whether this is a good ingredient to have, along with concentrated skimmed milk and chocolate.
There is a warning that traces of nuts maybe contained.
Once I had read the ingredients I wasn't sure I wanted to eat one anymore! However, for the purposes of my review I peeled back the lid and got my spoon.
The mousse has quite a thick consistency, maybe only slightly less than the full fat mousse, and has a light, bubbly texture. However, I could not smell the distinct Cadbury chocolate smell wafting up when I peeled back the lid, that I get when I am opening a Buttons twinpot.
On tasting the mousse I have to say I was not really impressed at all. In it's favour I will say the texture is lovely and it does taste nice and light, but the actual flavour was quite a let down.
It had a very strong taste of cocoa powder and it was very, very sweet! Far too sweet for my taste. I am sure they do not need to have it so sweet.
I only ate three small spoonfuls and could not finish it. My partner and daughter finished them off, but both commented that they were not all that nice and not to bother buying them again.
Overall I am disappointed by these, and while I love Cadbury's, this is one product I will not be buying again. If however, you have a really sweet tooth and love cocoa then you may like these!
It has put me off trying other 'lighter option' desserts too if they are all as sweet as this.
So it's back to the regular trifles and twinpots for me!
My mum brought these in Tesco cos they have loads less calories and fat than the normal Cadburys mousses that we buy. She is on a health kick so thinks we should all join her i think and that does my head in when she buys things like this cos they're never as good as the stuff will full sugar and fat.
These taste really fake and I didn't enjoy them at all.
They have a nice light feeling as I eat them but dont taste of chocolate very much and are too sweet cos Cadburys have used so many sweetners to make them. I think they have a powdery taste like coco powder that hasn't been mixed in properly but I can't see any powder so that might be my imagination.
I dont think this mousse tastes of anythingand its v. disappointing that the taste of chocolate has been taken away so much.
Its like them low calorie hot chocolates you can buy. Cadburys have taken a full sugar mousse and taken all the tasty bits out and all that's left is the low fat bits and mousse shouldn't be low fat anyway cos it's not a mousse then.!
It feels like a mousse but doesn't taste of one and even after eating 2 I still wanted chocolate and ended up having a Topic so mums plan to cut my calories down failed again.
As everyone knows Cadbury have been making yummy chocolate bars, desserts and other sweet treats for years. They have produced many yummy chocolate bars and keep coming out with new ideas for us all to try. John Cadbury the founder of Cadbury chocolate opened his first shop back in 1824 selling tea, coffee, cocoa and drinking chocolate. In 1897 the first Cadbury Dairy Milk went on sale, made of milk powder paste, cocoa mass, cocoa butter and sugar.
From 1908 - 2008 Cadbury also introduced many new bars of chocolate such as Milk Tray, Crunchie, Flake, Fudge, Roses, Curly Wurly, Creme Egg, Boost, and many more favourite chocolate bars such as Fuse and Wispa. In 2003 Cadbury became the world's number 1 confectionary company after buying various chewing gum brands including Trident. Even today Cadbury still remains' the number one seller for chocolate bars and confectionary.
This mousse made by Cadbury is available to buy in a set of 4 pots which come in a light mauve colour and they are the light mousse, which of course is lower in fat than the normal Cadbury mousse. I bought a set of 4 pots from Sainsbury's this week for a special price of 99p, which I thought was pretty good value. These are also available at other good supermarkets including Tesco, Morrisons and Asda. These come with a foil lid which is easy to remove.
The following information is per pot which is 55g.
* Fat - 1.9g
* Protein - 7.89
* Carbohydrate - 7.8g
When you peel back the lid from the mousse you will see a lovely fluffy, chocolatey looking mousse in the pot. It smells nice and chocolatey and looks very tempting. As I put the first spoonful of the mousse into my mouth the texture is fluffy and light and the mousse has the delicious taste of Cadbury chocolate. After eating the mousse I feel very satisfied as the mousse was quite sweet and although these are lower in fat that the other standard Cadbury mousse, I think if I ate another one it could be quite sickly. This is definitely a yummy treat to keep me going for a while before I crave something sweet again.
Although these mousses are lower in fat they still taste chocolatey and are still extremely satisfying. For a special price of 99p, I think these are great value and definitely worth a try. I would definitely buy these again and I would also be very tempted to buy the full fat mousses as well just to see how yummy these are compared to the light mousse. I think this will continue to be an item on my shopping list as it stops me craving a chocolate bar which I am forever eating.
Well, are you on a diet? Check. Have you got that urge for some delicious choclate? Check. Do you want to satisfy your chocolate craving without using up all of your calories? Check.
Well highlights chocolate mousse is just the thing for you.
They are low in calories (I think 1 weight watcher point) or 90 calories and taste pretty yummy too.
I have one most days after my salad for lunch, and they are just the thing to make you feel like you have had a yummy treat without blowing it all.
The pot is a small sized pot, but the mousse is fluffy and light (unless you bash it around in your bag a bit - in which case it is a bit more sloppy). It tastes delicious, not all like it is a diet mousse, and they are reasonably cheap snack. Just the thing for a tasty treat.
