Cadbury Joyville Review

Cadbury asked me to try out their new gifting service. “Joyville Made” which enables you to design and personalise a wrapper with any word, message and even a photo! I love personalised gifts both receiving, I always feel that somebody has taken a little more effort. I also enjoy sending them as its a chance to make a gift more unique, adding a special message or photo to show I care and great if you have family or friends with more unusual names.

I had so much fun having a play around with it, even with my pretty limited techy abilities, I was able to create a bar of chocolate for Chris, personalised to him and even with a photo of us, albeit with a few funny additions I decided to add. You can also create a bespoke web link with photos, videos or albums that are special to your recipient, this will be great as a special treat for when Paige goes off to uni. 

Its a very simple process and takes a few minutes to create,  then order the bar, you can buy two bar sizes, 200g or 360g.  It can be for a special day or just to spoil somebody, you can even send one to yourself. 

My bar arrived 3 days later,  there is an option to choose a specific date, ideal for Mothers Day.


I think seeing his name on the Cadbury bar was such a pleasing moment for Chris and for me too.

He groaned at the hats, loved the heart. I loved his expression as he saw it, I think its a brilliant idea, The only thing is he does not want to open it, just keeps showing it off.

I will have to get him another so he will share this choccy goodness soon.

RRP  £5.25 for a 200g bar, or £7.23 for a 360g bar


  1. I think this is a cool service but like Chris, a lot of people would be reluctant to open the wrapper.

  2. This is fab! Not too sure on the price though :(

  3. That is such a fun gift, especially with the image on it! Would probably not open the wrapper either though, despite the temptation of chocolate inside ;)

  4. I suppose the price is decided on all of the work that goes into printing every one different but at the end of the day places like moonpig and funky pigeon can personalise cards from £1.50 so really they could make it a little cheaper than that. If they werent that expensive i would consider buying one.

  5. It's a great idea. I hadn't heard of this before.

  6. I didn't realise they did this! My grandad is a chocolate fiend. That's his birthday gift sorted!

  7. This looks great. A special gift for the chocoholic in your life.
