Cadburys Christmas versus Thortons Christmas

In our house Christmas and Chocolate go hand in hand. I always buy a big hamper of chocolate to share around and we have chocolate Advent Calendars to count down the days.
Now there are lots of places to get your chocolate from but two of our favourites are Cadburys and Thorntons. I've decided to take a look at both and see what they have to offer for Christmas. Read on and then decide which you would go for Thorntons or Cadburys? There is a prize to be won for one of my lucky readers.

Advent Calendars

My kids adore Advent Calendars, a tiny piece of chocolate each day when they get home from school, and they know it's getting closer to Christmas by how many window they have opened.

3 cadbury chocolate advent calendars

Cadburys are offering 3 Advent Calendars for £6. Sounds like a bargain to me!

Thorntons also have a special offer on their Advent calendars, they are all under the 3 for 2 offer, with the cheapest ones being £5 that means it will cost you £10 for three calendars, but you can mix them for a wider choice, and even choose more expensive ones, although it's always the cheapest that you will get free. 

Size wise, these £5 ones have the same amount of chocolate than the Cadbury ones, but you do get a bigger variety.

Selection Boxes

Selection Boxes are a great stocking filler and a fab last minute gift for kids. I always wrap a few spare ones up and keep them under the tree, then if we have surprise guests at Christmas I can give the kids a Selection Box. 

Cadburys selection box

1 x 169g Cadbury Selection Box containing six Cadbury chocolate products including Dairy Milk, Crunchie, Dairy Milk with Oreo, Dairy Milk Buttons, Double Decker and Wispa. £2.99

Thorntons do not do Selection Boxes, but you can buy gifts like Chocolate Santas or Snowman at a slightly more expensive price but again they do come under the 3 for 2 offer so great for mixing gifts.

Christmas Gifts

If chocolate is not gift enough in itself you can always buy chocolate with a gift.

1 x 360g Cadbury Dairy Milk Gift Bar with 'Merry Christmas' cardboard wrap sleeve, 1 x Cadbury Dairy Milk Gorilla Soft Toy (Height: 24cm suitable from 3 months upwards)

I couldn't find anything similar at Thorntons.

Chocolate and Alcohol

How about a little tipple with your chocolate? Or a more grown up gift? Both Cadburys and Thorntons do a selection of alcohol and chocolate mixes with price ranges to suit all budgets. Here I've picked two similar for comparison.

1 x 360g Milk Tray- two layers of Milk chocolates, 1 x 75cl Il Cortile Sereno Prosecco Brut NV- Italian ABV. 11.5%

Bottega Gold Prosecco (750ml, Alcohol 11% vol.)
2 x Sicilian Mousse Bag (110g)


Need something to please the whole family, or looking for an extra special gift? How about a Hamper. Both Cadburys and Thorntons have lots to chose from, with a range of prices.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
