  • Nikhil: From calorie count to portion sizes,

  • we wanted to find out all the differences

  • between Cadbury chocolates in the UK and in India.

  • This is "Food Wars."

  • Cadbury Dairy Milk in India comes in ranges of four sizes.

  • No. 1 is Cadbury Dairy Milk minis.

  • It comes in this large packet

  • with 18 smaller pieces of 7 grams each.

  • Our smallest are these bite-size 11-gram bars.

  • Then we have these 18-gram little bars.

  • A simple 24-grams tiny one.

  • Next up we have our multipack bars,

  • which weigh 33.5 grams.

  • The standard individual Dairy Milk bar weighs 45 grams.

  • The duo bar, which comes in two halves

  • and weighs 54.4 grams.

  • Then a 55-grams maha pack.

  • Next up we have this 110-gram bar.

  • Family pack, 126 grams.

  • Then we move to a 180-gram bar.

  • We have this 360-gram bar.

  • The biggest size you'll find in the UK

  • is an 850-gram giant bar.

  • So, in India, Cadbury is really well known

  • for its gift boxes.

  • In fact, they've done so much marketing over so many years

  • that it's become synonymous with festivals like Diwali,

  • Dussehra, and even Christmas and New Year's.

  • On their website right now, you can get anything

  • from an anniversary tin box to a Ramadan tin box.

  • And they come in several different sizes.

  • For starters, there's a standard personalized gift box,

  • which contains six Cadbury Dairy Milk bars,

  • three of which are Silk and three of which are standard.

  • And that's the one we have right here.

  • In fact, they've put my face on it!

  • I mean, that's a whole lot of packaging

  • for normal bars of chocolate you can just buy, I guess.

  • It even says "Food Wars"!

  • Oh, it says US versus India. Sorry, Harry.

  • Apart from this, you can also get

  • a larger personalized birthday gift box,

  • which will contain 450 grams of Silk bars,

  • three birthday whistles, a large banner, a birthday hat.

  • So the next time you don't know what to do

  • for your birthday, just order this to your house,

  • and you can have a party by yourself.

  • Now, we have some gift-box items of our own,

  • but they usually come more in the form of selection boxes.

  • These are most commonly seen around Christmastime,

  • at which point Cadbury's will release Heroes and Roses,

  • which are selection boxes containing 600 grams

  • of individually wrapped chocolates.

  • It's a real tradition in British households

  • to have a few of these lying around.

  • The other options include Quality Street and Celebrations.

  • People tend to have their own favorites

  • when it comes to the selection boxes

  • and also the chocolates inside them.

  • I think generally Heroes would be

  • my preferred option over Roses.

  • I prefer the kind of more mainstream chocolate bars

  • that you'll find, including little Wispa bites,

  • which I think might be my favorites.

  • If you want a gift option for all year round,

  • opt for a Milk Tray. These have been around for decades.

  • I think my mum used to be giving these to people

  • when she was growing up.

  • And for the run-up to Christmas,

  • you gotta get yourself an Advent calendar.

  • I don't think I'd normally go for one of these.

  • These are a little bit flimsy, quite narrow.

  • But still, you get a lot of joy

  • from opening a tiny bite of chocolate every morning

  • in the run-up to Christmas.

  • Here are all the Cadbury products

  • that you'll find in India that you will not find in the UK.

  • Here are all the Cadbury products from the UK

  • that you won't find in India.

  • This is so much chocolate.

  • In terms of our classic Dairy Milk flavors,

  • we have two exclusives.

  • No. 1, roast almond, and No. 2, crackle.

  • This used to be my favorite as a child,

  • but right now I really like this.

  • Delicious chunks of roast almond.

  • We have some exclusive Dairy Milk flavors of our own.

  • Firstly, for the health-conscious among us,

  • we have this 30% less sugar Dairy Milk.

  • I guess this could be helpful as well

  • if you find regular milk chocolate too sweet,

  • which some people do,

  • but then I guess just opt for some dark chocolate instead.

  • Next up we have Cadbury caramel.

  • It's a bar of Dairy Milk,

  • but inside each square there's a little bit of caramel.

  • This is one of my favorite ones.

  • It does get a little bit sickly if you eat too much of it

  • because of the amount of sugar, but very tasty.

  • We have some Big Taste bars,

  • which are chunky versions of Dairy Milk,

  • starting with peanut caramel crisp.

  • And we also have a triple choc sensation Big Taste bar,

  • which combines dark, milk, and white chocolate

  • in one delicious bar.

  • These ones look really cool.

  • They've definitely put a bit more thought

  • into the design of the bars.

  • Tastes really good as well.

  • Next up, we've got Dairy Milk with Crunchie bits.

  • Now, this is Crunchie with an -ie, not crunchy with a -y.

  • Crunchie with an -ie is actually a bar of chocolate

  • you can get here in the UK.

  • It's milk chocolate with a honeycomb center.

  • Then we have a Dairy Milk Daim bar.

  • Daim is another chocolate bar

  • which Dairy Milk has kind of collabed with.

  • I think it's a very thin, brittle almond-caramel bar

  • with a little bit of chocolate on the outside.

  • My granddad really used to like Daim.

  • Then we have this Marvellous Creations

  • jelly popping candy bar.

  • As the name suggests, it's a bar of chocolate

  • which contains some popping candy

  • as well as I think jelly beans.

  • I've not tried this in a long time.

  • I want to see what the ratios are like

  • and also if I can really feel the popping candy.

  • You can see a couple of bits of,

  • I assume, jelly beans peeking out of the top.

  • The pattern is kind of odd.

  • Usually obviously you have squares.

  • Makes it nice and easy to break apart and share.

  • I'm just gonna bite into it like a madman.

  • You really do get the popping candy. My mouth is popping.

  • [popping]

  • It's actually not too bad.

  • You get little chewy sweet bits in with your chocolate.

  • There's a lot going on, but I don't hate it.

  • For vegans in the UK, Cadbury's also has a plant-based bar.

  • I've never tried this, so I want to see

  • if I can taste the difference between this and Dairy Milk.

  • I mean, it looks like chocolate.

  • Definitely does taste of almond, which is OK,

  • 'cause I quite like kind of nut and chocolate

  • as a combination. If I went vegan,

  • I don't know if I'd be rushing to the store to buy this.

  • It's OK. The texture's pretty good,

  • but the flavor just really isn't there.

  • Our last two exclusive Dairy Milk bars

  • are actually a mystery.

  • Two bars which contain fillings of a mystery flavor.

  • You try and guess what the flavor is,

  • and then you can submit your answer online.

  • Myself and the rest of the crew have now got to try these

  • and give our best guesses. Mystery bar one.

  • Oh, God. The last time I threw stuff at you

  • it didn't go very well.

  • Leon: I've got it. Harry: Ooh.

  • OK, it's fruity. Currently we're thinking maybe rose.

  • I'm personally thinking apricot. Struggling to agree here.

  • We can taste more. Swear I get fruit.

  • While we figure that one out,

  • we'll try mystery bar No. 2.

  • Now, this one smells aggressively fruity.

  • Catch, Leon.

  • I'm getting quite a lot of, like,

  • very artificial raspberry flavor.

  • I'd be fairly confident in asserting that as raspberry.

  • It might be blueberry.

  • Plot twist, they've already revealed the flavors.

  • We didn't know.

  • First one was rhubarb and custard. Classic British dessert.

  • Didn't really get very close to that one.

  • Second was blue raspberry,
