A Box of Chocolates

Chocolates say " I love you" Chocolates say "Thank you" Chocolates say "Happy Birthday", Chocolates say "Happy anniversary" Chocolates say " I am Sorry" Chocolates say "I am thinking about you"

Chocolates and candy are the most popular choice of gift for almost every occasion. Not only are chocolates widely available but they are a great panic buy when you can't think of anything else to get.

A box of Chocolates is always appreciated by the recipient and it will never go to waste especially with the wide variety of flavors contained in every box.

Cadbury Roses is one of the most popular brand of boxed chocolates sold around the world because they are low cost and have a selection of ten flavors to choose from.

About Cadbury Roses

Cadbury Roses are easy to spot amongst the crowd of other brands on the shelves, they come in a distinctive blue box dotted with red roses, a blue pouch, or in a blue tin with the same decoration.

A box of roses comes in two sizes, 220 grams and the bigger 400 gram box. The pouch contains 600 grams of chocolates and the tin contains 850 grams of chocolate. All of the weights do include the weight of the wrappers on each individual chocolate.

In every box, pouch or tin of Cadbury Roses there are a selection of ten different filled chocolates to choose from:

  1. Cadbury Dairy Milk.
  2. Brazilian Darkness
  3. Country Fudge
  4. Caramel Velvet
  5. Hazel Whirl
  6. Caramel
  7. Hazel in Caramel
  8. Strawberry Dream
  9. Golden Barrel
  10. Tangy Orange Creme

The hazel in caramel chocolate found in every box, pouch or tin of Cadbury Roses is usually the most popular with consumers.

So much so that Cadbury recently started selling it as an individual filled chocolate.

Cadbury Roses "All Done"

The sad sight of my empty box, I am glad that I didn't buy the tin or I would have had to  have my stomach pumped.

Cadbury Roses Review

I do not really eat a lot of chocolate or chocolates quite simply because when I start eating chocolate I don't know when to stop.

I opened my 220 gram box of Roses and found around twenty chocolates in the box, Two of each flavor, I was in chocolate heaven. The chocolates never stood a chance.

Not being a fan of dark chocolate I "tested" the Brazilian Darkness first, The bitterness of the plain chocolate with the Brazil nut combination really works and although I really wouldn't be able to eat too many of them in one sitting, I could be persuaded to try more plain chocolate flavors.

Fondants are not high on my priority so I tried those next and although I really enjoyed the Strawberry Dream and the Tangy Orange Creme mixed with milk chocolate, I wouldn't make a habit of eating them because they are so sickly sweet.

I then destroyed the Hazel Whirl, milk chocolate infused with shavings of Hazelnut, I loved the blend of flavors the chocolate and nuts mixed together are a great combination.

Next I had to sample the Dairy Milk two squares of milk chocolate that just simply tastes great.

The Country Fudge was a delight, milk chocolate surrounding a creamy fudge centre, it was one of my favorites in the box and I could eat a whole box of them.

Next I tried the Caramel, hard toffee in milk chocolate, like the country fudge I really enjoyed this one, the toffee was just the right consistency and the mix of chocolate and toffee has always been a favorite of mine.

By this time I was starting to eat my Roses like a man possessed, I was onto the caramel filled chocolates, saving my favorites until last.

The Caramel Velvet was my next chocolate of choice just milk chocolate with soft caramel on the inside, quickly followed by the Golden Barrel, again milk chocolate with soft caramel inside these both tasted the same but the Golden Barrel had more caramel.

I had the chocolate sweats by the time I got to my favorite chocolate of all time Hazel in Caramel, a melt in your mouth orgy of pleasure that leaves you wishing that the whole box was full of them.

Over all Cadbury Roses are a good choice of gift for almost any occasion they are cheap and there are a good selection of flavors to suit everyone, especially if you are one of those odd people who like to share their chocolates with others.

Great value for money Cadbury Roses are the best way to go to chocolate heaven.

      I just got my mom some Godiva chocolate. I know she likes that. I'll have to try her out on the Cadbury Roses. They sound just as good, and for much less money.

      I don't think I've ever seen one yet in my place. I guess it's a fairly new product? I'm going to hunt for that -- being a chocoholic that shouldn't escape me hehehehe! Voted up and shared. :D

      I don't think we have Cadbury Roses where I live, or at least I've never heard of them. It's a good thing, cause they sound awfully good and I'm sure I'd pig out, too.

      I voted this UP, etc.

      This article brought back a lot of memories for me. Every time I'm in the UK, I bring back Cadbury Roses as a "souvenir."

      Congratulations on your seven million page views. Wow!

      Gotta love the caramels, fudge, dairy milk and strawberry dreams. Whenever we get a box of these my partner always dives in for the hazel caramels which is fine by me because I don't like them.

      I have no willpower with these. Once the box is in my possession that's it, they're gone! Love this hub!

      Love the Dairy Milk chocolate most of all though I wouldn't say no to any of them, ever.

      Wonderful hub! Pinning because I LOVE Cadbury Roses chocolates. Oops can't pin? Will tweet instead. And vote.

      Unfortunately, Jimmy, I'm one of those "weird" people that doesn't like chocolate but I enjoyed reading your comprehensive review. You certainly cover the options well - and have reminded me of a lovely lady to whom I owe a box of chocolates, at least! Thanks and great work, Gordon

      Never had a Cadbury Rose, but I've also never met a chocolate I didn't like. The barrel one sounds delicious!

      I love this hub but I'm annoyed that I didn't think of it first. I'm just thinking of tasting all those chocolates :)

      Great Hub - I also love chocolate but try not to eat too much. Yes, research can be boring :))

      I had to make a huge sacrifice to write this Hub lol, eating all of those chocolates in the name of research was a difficult task.

      Thanks for your comments and visits guys.....jimmy

      Love this hub - not only because I love chocolate, but because I could imagine myself (like you) devouring an entire bouquet of Cadbury Roses in a single setting. Rated up across the board - including funny!

      Best, Steph

      I love both Roses and Cadbury Milk Tray. Cost Plus World Market often sells them for anyone who wants to give them a try.

      Chocolates are a good choice to write a review on; as you can eat them as you write.

      Nice review! I had never heard of Cadbury Roses before. Will have to keep an eye out for them - they all sound quite delicious!

      The purple one with the hazelnut in the middle is my favourite but I'd settle for any of them to be honest.

      As a chocolate, hazelnut, aramel fiend, this was really fun. I got all the pleaure without the pounds, just listening to your description. I don't know when to quit either, so I rarely start anymore. But, I have to admit that I'll slather Nutella on almost anything and add a touch of chocolate to my hazelnut coffee. Oh, I am so weak. :-) Voted up!

      God hub idea! My favourite is the Golden Barrel but on balance I'd prefer a box of Quality Street (if you're buying ;)
