We don’t know what genius at Cadbury came up with the idea of adult-sized Dairy Milk Buttons, but we salute them. Since 1960, kids in the UK and further afield have enjoyed a pack of Cadbury’s Buttons as a special treat. They’re a perfect way for parents to ration their children’s chocolate consumption, and allow them to enjoy some Dairy Milk goodness without gorging themselves on a full-size bar of the stuff.
As a grown-up Cadbury’s Buttons still taste every bit as good, but you might get the feeling that they’re not really meant for you. Thankfully, along came Giant Buttons, made for full-sized mouths to enjoy!
In many countries, the name Cadbury’s Dairy Milk is synonymous with delicious chocolate. Cadbury products can be found all over the world, from the United Kingdom to Australia and South Africa, and many places in between. For most people it’s a quintessentially British brand, and indeed the company was founded in England in 1824. But believe it or not, Cadbury’s have also been producing their famous chocolate in Ireland for over a hundred years.
Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate is made, as they used to say in the old commercials, using “a glass and a half of full cream milk in every half pound”. In other words, that’s 426ml of milk in 227g of chocolate. It’s this generous dose of milk which gives Cadbury’s chocolate its legendary richness and makes it Britain’s favourite chocolate, year after year.
And it’s this which makes Cadbury’s Dairy Milk really special. It may not be the fanciest, most sophisticated chocolate. It may not be made using the most exclusive ingredients. But if you ask us, it’s the best in the world at doing what chocolate is supposed to do – little bite-sized bursts of exquisite pleasure.
If you can resist eating your Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Giant Buttons as soon as you open the bag, why not give yourself a dose of childhood nostalgia by using them as a cake decoration?
