Cadbury Easter Mallows

Cadbury Easter MallowsCadbury does more for Easter than just the Mini Eggs and Creme Eggs, but we see little of that in the United States. I was lucky to find these imported goodies at my local Cost Plus World Market.

This tray of Limited Edition Easter Mallows is huge. Even though it only weighs 5.29 ounces, the large tray made it look like there was a lot of candy in here.

The clear tray holds the 10 chocolate covered marshmallow domes. They’re cradled well, and though a few of mine were cracked (could have been me treating the package roughly), none of them were leaking.

Cadbury Easter Mallows

The candy construction is simple. A round cookie (biscuit) base with a dollop of Jaffa orange jam, then a heap of marshmallow, all covered in Cadbury milk chocolate.

They’re about 1.75 inches in diameter and about .75 inches high. The bite is soft and the chocolate shell is crisp and adheres pretty well to the marshmallow.

They smell like dairy milk chocolate before biting, but after biting through to the jam center, it’s definitely orange. The flavor of the jam is rather like marmalade, with a strong zest component along with some sweet syrup and tangy juice to it. The cookie base is soft and crumbly, like a graham cracker. The marshmallow, though soft and passable didn’t do much for me one way or the other. The milk chocolate coating is very sweet and has a dried milk flavor to it.

On the whole, these are very appealing. I really liked the flavorful punch of the center much better than the filled marshmallows I’ve had from Asia.

They were expensive though, at $2.99 for the tray (but I felt like I’ve been leaving my UK reader friends out lately). I’m not quite sure what makes them an Easter candy (maybe if they were egg shaped) or if there’s a non-Easter version that these are based on. The Cadbury site was no help. (But I did find out that these are sold at Aldi in the UK.)

Each Easter Mallow has 65 calories.

The gelatin is made from pork, so these are definitely not Halal, Kosher or vegetarian.

  5. These looks very much like an Easter version of Mellowpuffs (http://www.griffins.co.nz/by-name/mallowpuffs) with the jam added to make an egg yolk. Sounds like the Cadbury’s version uses a different biscuit base though - the Griffins ones have a shortbread base.

  6. oh man. those look like something worth going out of one’s way to try to find.

  7. They come out at easter i guess just like the cadbury creme eggs (they are an Easter only treat in Aus), because “eggs” are in relation to Easter. The painting of eggs, the hunting of eggs, the eating of Easter eggs! smile

    In America do you have a wide variety of easter eggs/rabbits etc and what is the main company that makes them?

    In Australia the main company is Cadbury and Red Tulip. Also Nestle but less so.

  10. I was wondering if these were worth it or not, I have seen them at the department store in the shopping centre attached to my office.  I have had them in my basket twice and put them back, maybe I will keep them in next time!

  11. We call these ‘Teacakes’ in the UK! We have an equivalent Cadbury product but they are more famously made by a company called Tunnocks!

  12. Teacakes? wow…i didn’t know that. We have similar products that are biscuits but they have a biscuit base.

  14. Maybe they are “Easter” because when you bite into them they look like chocolate covered hard boiled eggs (or not so hard). They are white with a yellow/orange center.
