Today's Review: Cadbury Dairy Milk Daim Eggs

Christmas is over, and that means it's time for Easter. Well, in terms of confectionary shopping anyway, Easter isn't for a few months yet. Many will complain about this, saying that it's way too soon, and it sucks all of the meaning out of the holiday. But I don't see how waiting a couple more months to pick up my mass produced consumerist chocolates will remind me of the reason for the season. Because my reason is chocolate, and I'm completely fine eating that whatever time of year it may be.

Chocolate is certainly the name of the game at Easter, so it's up to the big companies to really pull out the stops to get their products noticed. I've seen the wonderful Malteaster bunnies, alongside the traditional Creme Egg offering, but Cadbury are bringing out these little bags of Daim eggs, riding on the coattails of their success with the Dairy Milk Daim bar. It was indeed fantastic, so I couldn't wait to try these bad boys.

Unfortunately, these don't really pack the same punch. Sure, they taste a bit like Daim, but the chunks aren't as sizeable of prevalent as in the Dairy Milk bar. I was biting into each little egg expecting a satisfying crunch, but there's really not a lot there. I mean, the chocolate is certainly nice, and there's a definite Daim hint in there that gives a nice kick, but it's just not enough for me, and it makes me long for the far superior bar version. These are certainly good enough to eat, but I know Cadbury are capable of a lot more.

My rating: 3/5


  1. I agree these aren't as good as the bar version. Maybe they should have tried mixing D'aim with the fillings in Cadbury Egg N Spoons instead...

    1. I didn't try the Egg 'N' Spoons last year as I was in the midst of a strict diet. I'll definitely have to find some this year.

  2. I have tried the Daim eggs and quite frankly was very disappointed. I don't understand why they are called 'Daim' as there is no 'Daim' in there at all. I go a bag full of plain old milk chocolate eggs! Will definitely not be buying these again!
