I have heard so many people saying they have changed and horrible now. I just had one, tastes the same.

What's the big deal? I don't get it?

The chocolate is thinner and less creamy. You don't get that BG wodge of chocolate at the pointy end.

Yabu, have a non cadburys chocolate bar on me 🍫

NattyNatural Tue 26-Jan-16 18:19:31

Seven grin

Do you work for their PR department? Cadburys chocolate is SHITE, nobody thinks otherwise.

TheMouseThatRoared Tue 26-Jan-16 18:20:57

Yabu, Cadburys is shchocolatet now.

It tastes awful. Kraft are playing about to save money and get our taste buds acclimatised to the greasy shit that is american 'chocolate' in a sneaky attempt to take over the uk and replace all our lovely chocolate with vomit bars.
It is the end of civilisation as we know it.

They're also half the size they used to be. The balance of goo to chocolate is all discombobulated.

YABU

And goady to start such a thread about such a clear-cut subject

NattyNatural Tue 26-Jan-16 18:22:20

Nope, I often have a CCG at Easter but tend to go for galaxy if just picking up a bar.

After hearing so many negative things about it I was worried I wouldn't enjoy my usual egg but found it normal, I have to say though there's less chocolate at the top bit as pointed out

WineOrSleep Tue 26-Jan-16 18:22:30

It's not a cadburys creme egg

It's now a Kraft grease filled yuck-splodge

yabu wink

there was a massive thread on here not too long ago about how shite cadbury is now. It was a good thread grin

i'd rather have no chocolate at all than to have cadburys, thats how much i dislike it.

Before I tried one I was thinking that this was just a mn overreaction, everyone jumping on the bandwagon.
I ate a cream egg the other day - the chocolate just didn't melt properly and tasted less creamy than I remember. It might be all in my mind as I've been influenced by the mn threads or it might be that the chocolate is crap now but either way, I'm not buying a creme egg again!

Shakey15000 Tue 26-Jan-16 18:24:02

Still taste yummy to me. <trounces over "nobody likes Cadburys" theory> wink

NattyNatural Tue 26-Jan-16 18:24:09

I'm not being goody queen just stating I'd not noticed the difference.

RortyCrankle Tue 26-Jan-16 18:24:12

YABVU. chocolate = shit.

MoreGilmoreGirls Tue 26-Jan-16 18:25:15

YABU

They have always been vile.

FishOn Tue 26-Jan-16 18:28:13

IMO they were always disgusting grin

colander1 Tue 26-Jan-16 18:29:40

They stopped putting dairy milk on the outside and instead used generic vomit chocolate. I emailed them to complain with a lovely long letter. Enjoyed that!

Ginmakesitallok Tue 26-Jan-16 18:29:45

Tastes fine to me

FirstWeTakeManhattan Tue 26-Jan-16 18:30:20

I used to love a few CCE, but don't bother now. And I hate being treated like an idiot, even by a massive, faceless, no-shits-given company.

They taste crap now.

BrieAndChilli Tue 26-Jan-16 18:31:18

I reckon they have made it taste really shite on purpose so they can improve the recipe slightly (but no where near as nice as before) so people will think it's back to normal and they have saved costs
So ie say old recipe is 100% nice, someone at Kraft said we should make it 75% nice so we can save money but people will notice so let's make it 50% nice this year then when everyone complains we will make it 75% nice like we wants to originally!! Same as when products are price hikes right before a sale or special offer!!

wowfudge Tue 26-Jan-16 18:31:48

I agree that Cadbury's has been destroyed, but they're not part of Kraft anymore. Kraft spun off various brands as Mondelez.

NaughtToThreeSadOnions Tue 26-Jan-16 18:32:10

YABU for even liking them they always tasted sick (and I don't mean that in teenage language)

They've swapped from dairy milk to just bog standard milk chocolate so you should taste the difference I cant cos I wouldn't even buy one ever!

I don't mind most other cadburys
