They have ruined Dairy Milk.

Bloody Kraft. I want the square shape back.

Wikipedia says it has been the same shape since 1905.

Each segment looks like a little brown slug sad

fucking hell.
I'm shocked.
i thought they understood not to diss about.

in my local fuel station the cadburys always has a layer of dust on it, I swear I'm the only person that must buy it. I think I have an untapped supply for a while....

i meant piss about

Bloody hell. Why couldn't they leave it alone??

First Kitkats (buggering the wrapper up) and now this.

I am in a huff now.

Probably Elf & Safety lot said they had to get rid of the corners in case they had somebody's eye out.

The chocolate does NOT taste the same. It tastes of steralised milk.

Foggles grin

Foggles Mon 07-Jan-13 20:48:01

Ooh no. Sterilised milk. My mum still has that - it's vile.

I haven't eaten dairy milk for years tbh. It tastes chalky. I'm sure they meddled with the ingredients a few years ago. I'm a galaxy fan myself, but I'm still VERY ANGRY about the change of shape. <crosses arms>

Literally cutting corners!

GwendolineMaryLacey Mon 07-Jan-13 20:48:33

What the actual fuckety fuck is that supposed to be? This has not improved my crap day one iota angry

JollyToddles Mon 07-Jan-13 20:49:39

Sorry Gwendoline.

Maybe if MN complain en masse (Cadbury Dairy Milk have a facebook page) then we could achieve something?

Not sure what the fuss is about, its not even real chocolate no matter what shape it is.

BigStickBIWI Mon 07-Jan-13 20:52:27

I'm amazed that they have done that. I did a lot of research for Cadbury, years ago now, and one of the key things about Dairy Milk is the feel of the square in the mouth, and how it makes the chocolate melt.

If you need to be snooty bureni go and find somewhere else to do it.

We hold our Cadbury Dairy Milk very dear, whether it is 'real' chocolate or not.


Pickles101 Mon 07-Jan-13 20:58:32

It's horrible, all smooth and ugh sad and it doesn't taste the same, it's all sickly and weird and awful sad what deliciousness will get me through period cramps now sad retreats into bedroom sobbing heavily

Foggles Mon 07-Jan-13 20:58:49

If we want round chocolate, we can have buttons. Unless they're going to make those into triangles.

bureni Mon 07-Jan-13 20:59:11

Snooty lol, you should try some real chocolate and get a buzz.

JumpingJackSprat Mon 07-Jan-13 21:00:16

i was really annoyed when i saw the new shape of caramels the other day... its obviously to use less chocolate (i doubt the price is coming down though!) oh well i used to find them irrisistable but now im being conned ill find it much easier to not buy them! wink

2kidsintow Mon 07-Jan-13 21:01:25

I like cadbury, but am not impressed by the new shape either. I like my chocolate to be uniform in thickness.

Tabliope Mon 07-Jan-13 21:02:59

I'm really annoyed too. It definitely tastes different - sweeter and more sickly. I was recently in Dublin airport and in the newsagents there they had the original shape and it tasted like it used to. They also had Cadbury's Tiffin - anyone remember that? Also, a mint crisp cadbury's and a few other old flavours that I can't seem to get in the UK. I'm not buying it anymore. The taste is horrible now and I don't think I'm imagining it.

JollyToddles Mon 07-Jan-13 21:04:14

I haven't bought one of the new bars. I can't bring myself to do so. They are not right sad

Charliefox Mon 07-Jan-13 21:06:58

The taste is definitely different and not as nice. Which is good news for me, as it means I'm eating less of the fat-and-zit-inducing stuff.
