Cadbury Bubbles of Joy Duo Mint Mousse (Waitrose) [By @Cinabar]

Well I thought I'd try out the new Bubbles of Joy Duo Mousse, as they looked pretty, and well they had "New" in the title. I quite like this sort of thing as a light dessert, something sweet but not too calorific.
According to the box they combine mint mousse and chocolate mousse in a funky diamond pattern. Also according to the box the pot is almost completely full... The packaging shows mousse just millimetres from the top of the pot. This is sadly not the case in reality. I don't mean that it's just a bit lower than you expected, it's more in the category of "what the heck - where's the rest of my dessert"?

Both pots were the same, looking very empty and a bit disappointing. I tried to get over this, but was struggling. They didn't live up,to my expectations.
Yes the design of the two mousse colours looked nice enough. The mousse itself was fluffy and light. The mint was fresh and sweet. The peppermint section combined nicely with the sweet chocolate parts. Taste wise I liked them, they were perfectly pleasant. They would have been even lovelier if they was a little bit bigger, like on the picture, you know a proper pot full. Sadly I wouldn't buy them again, the visual disappointment of a shallow filling was not compensated by the cute pattern.
