Well seeing how much everyone seems to have enjoyed my Mars Bar Ice Cream review. I thought perhaps id better foorce myself to eat another type of cre cream. Just for research and to ensure that the ladies and gentlemen of ciao have an informed opinion of whats out there......lol
So off i went to my local Co-Op to see what they had there. Looking in the freezer section i saw a sight that made me almost scream in orgasmic pleasure. I will now pause while you imagine me having a When Harry met Sally moment in the middle of the freezer section of the Co-Op..................................... Finished laughing? Ok i will carry on.
What i saw was a wide variety of ice creams on special offer. 2 for £3.00. Thats right ladies and gents 2 packets of delicious ice creams for £3.00, how good a deal is that?
Well after carefull consideration i chose a packet of 9 Walls Mini feasts, toffee and chocolate. My second choice was Cadburys Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut Ice Cream Bars. These were priced at £1.99 each. However since this review
is on these and not the Feasts we will stick to them, But watch out for another review.
---------- History: ---------- John Cadbury started his business in 1824, using a simple Pestle and mortar to make drinking chocolate. Since that day the business went from strength to strength, till in 1905 Cadbury's Dairy Milk was launched. Setting the standard by which other chocolates are measured.
Cadbury's also set standards in emplyee relations. The village of Bournville was set up to provide housing for the workers in tha factory. They were also the first company to make saturday a half day as well as allowing the employees to have bank holidays off.
The company had a policy of using the carrot not the stick to motivate the workers. This led to an almost fanatical loyalty to the company and improved productivity.
Cadbury's now even have there own visitor centre. Cadbury World, which for chocoholics like me beats Disney World as the happiest place on Earth. Again that is something for another review.
--------------- Packaging: ---------------
The packets each contain 4 ice cream bars. Its red and blue with the Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut logo at the top. Including the famous glass and a half of milk being poured into a bar of chocolate. Underneath this is a picture of the ice cream bar cut open showing the chocolate ice cream almonds and raisins. On the back of the box is a picture of the other flavours in the range. This includes Dairy Milk, Dairy Milk with Caramel, Dairy Milk Shortcake Biscuit and Crunchie.
Each bar is wrapped in a red and blue wrapper. The Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut logo is printed on this. Just to make sure you know what your about to eat.
-------- Taste: --------
On opening the wrapper there is a feint, but unmistakenable smell of Cadbury's chocolate. I take a bite and my mouth fills with the tase of not only the chocolate, but also of the chocolate ice cream. as this melts a away i become aware of something a little more solid in the mixture.
I start to chew and the taste of the rasin comes through. this is followed by the almonds. These are not whole almonds as indicated on the box, but rather small flakes.
The overall taste experiance is very pleasent. Not the greatest ice cream ive ever tasted but a long way off from being the worst. ------------------------------ Nutritional Information: ------------------------------
After getting your mouth watering, its time to put you off.

---------------- Conclusion: ----------------
An very tasty ice cream. The only major downside i can see with these is the small size, only 4". Obviously not for you if on a diet or allergic to nuts. However if you are not watching your weight or just want a treat then these are the ones for you.

with raisins and almonds. Plump raisins and chunky almonds are the source of all our fruity nuttiness. We swirl them in creamy Cadbury Dairy Milk milk chocolate to give you fruity, nutty, chocolatey heaven. It's a match made in Cadbury.

George Cadbury and his team of confectioners created a chocolate containing a 'far higher milk content than previously known' to challenge the Swiss domination of the chocolate market. After names such as 'Highland Milk' and 'Dairy Maid' were considered, Cadbury Dairy Milk (CDM) was launched in 1905 and became an instant success. Over 100 years later and the recipe is relatively unchanged and is kept under lock and key in a safe within Bournville. Cadbury introduced its famous 'Glass and a half of full cream milk in every half pound' slogan in 1928, but the world famous symbol was only used in advertising. It would be another half a century before the design was used on packaging. At Cadbury, all Cocoa is sourced in a sustainable manner. This is underpinned by the Cadbury Cocoa Partnership and the Fairtrade Mark. Guaranteeing a long term, sustainable cocoa yield is vital to the company's success and it has to be produced to the high quality and ethical standards expected by our business, the retailers who sell our product and the consumers who eat it. The Cadbury Cocoa Partnership is a truly groundbreaking investment, aiming to help secure the economic, social and environmental sustainability of around one million cocoa farmers and their communities. We love beans. Especially cocoa beans. We believe the best ones come from Ghana, in West Africa, which is why we are happy to pay premium prices for them. We think its worth it to give Cadbury Dairy Milk its unique chocolatey taste that we all love so much. Allergy Information Contains: Milk, Nuts May Contain: Wheat, Soya\Soybeans
