Here at Sweet Tree by Browns, we are passionate about making chocolate more beautiful and delicious than ever before. That’s why we have now combined the sweetness and smoothness of chocolate buttons with our beautiful sweet trees. Chocolate buttons are one of the most popular chocolate products sold today and are enjoyed by people all over the world every day. So, in this article we will be taking a look at why they’re so popular!
What are Cadbury Chocolate Buttons?
Chocolate buttons are flat, circular-shaped pieces of chocolate that are made to look like little buttons. Made from delicious milk chocolate, they are also available in dark and white alternatives or even with delicious fillings such as toffee or Malteser!
Chocolate buttons were first sold by Cadbury in the UK in 1960 and have since been sold in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and throughout the UK and Ireland with great success. If you’ve never tried a chocolate button, you’re missing out because these little chocolates are bursting with melt-in-the-mouth chocolatey flavour.

Why are Chocolate Buttons Round?
Many people wonder why chocolate buttons were made in the first place and why they were made to be round, instead of the traditional square or rectangular chocolate bar shapes. Charles Spence, a good sensory scientist, discovered that there is a relationship between our senses and the foods we eat. That is, we make consistent matches between the shapes of our foods and their tastes.
When it comes to chocolate, round shapes are often softer on the tongue and therefore easier to melt in the mouth, giving the impression that they taste sweeter. The sensory discovery is also why dark chocolate is sold in angular shapes, as it makes the chocolate bar taste increasingly bitter. So, when Cadbury’s created their Milk Chocolate Button range, their sales soared through the roof!
