Those krafty bastards! The taste has changed!!! You knew it MN. My partner is so not interested in this shocking development that I had to come and talk about it here. I knew my childhood memories had not been created.

So AIBU or have they really ruined it?

And don't get me started on the apple crunch....

I had a Cadbury's caramel egg (one of my favourites) but spat it out because the chocolate was VERY disgusting!!

OhShutUpThomas Wed 16-Mar-16 20:44:38

Yep. We couldn't all be making it up.

Krafty feckers.

We all knew when is this being televised?

HopIt Wed 16-Mar-16 20:46:27

"HopIt, there's a programme you'll want to watch, dispatches all about cadburys"
Shouted DH from the other room. I bloody told him I wasn't making it up

It's Monday at 8pm

SummerHouse Wed 16-Mar-16 20:49:09

It's on Monday 8pm on 4. I think.

I used to be able to eat a big £1 bar of Dairy Milk in one sitting (I know, gross). But recently I've found that 1) I don't really want to any more, as a couple of squares is enough, and 2) I start to find it quite sickly if I do have more than a few squares. Sad.

Tax tax tax tax tax them

Hoplt are you me? Very similar convo in this house plus x post.

VertigoNun Wed 16-Mar-16 20:52:25

We all agreed it was now disgusting so no arguments in this house. I saved money and calories as a consequence of the great Cadbury gaslighting campaign.

EverySongbirdSays Wed 16-Mar-16 20:54:36

They said they wouldn't change it and didn't for a while, but it's definitely tastes different now, a bit like wax! I haven't deliberately bought a Cadbury's bar in ages and we got Celebrations rather than Heroes or Roses at Christmas

Don't even get me started on Cadbury's buttons!
Used to love 'em.
Now they are proper minging.

0phelia Wed 16-Mar-16 20:57:18

My poor baby son. I grew up loving Cadbury's Creme Egg as an Easter treat.
My Children will never know it's delicious creamy chocolaty goodness. They've only got something totally minging...


TheCountessofFitzdotterel Wed 16-Mar-16 20:57:52

Thing is, the kids don't like it now, and you can't gaslight children into thinking something tastes the same as something else when it doesn't - lord knows we try hard enough with vegetables...

0phelia Wed 16-Mar-16 20:59:27

How much Corporate Evil did they pay for this chocolate ??!

Libitina Wed 16-Mar-16 21:00:44

I have a VERY sweet tooth and now don't buy Cadburys. It tastes 'waxy' and sugary now rather than creamy and chocolatey.

CaptainHammer Wed 16-Mar-16 21:02:58

Thanks for the heads up!
I don't buy Cadburys anymore, it's such a shame they've ruined it.

TattyCat Wed 16-Mar-16 21:20:04

Galaxy all the way. Always has been, always will be grin

QueenLaBeefah Wed 16-Mar-16 21:21:12

Does anyone know if Cadburys is making less of a profit now. I'm interested if their cost cutting (smaller sizes, cheaper ingredients, closing factories) has saved them money against all the people no longer buying their brand.

HopIt Wed 16-Mar-16 21:25:36

scarednoob they've not paid tax for 5 years let alone getting them to pay more tax!

It hurts my teeth now, I don't know what they've done. I'm currently sat with a coffee eating lidl 35p chocolate, it's lovely

Jugglingballs65 Wed 16-Mar-16 21:28:36

And their mini eggs are smaller!

namechangeformypost Wed 16-Mar-16 21:28:42

Am I the only one who hasn't noticed the change? confused

PrincessHairyMclary Wed 16-Mar-16 21:29:56

I over indulged last Easter and it gave me a very dodgy stomach and I've not eaten Cadburys since. It's not all bad as I discovered Lindt instead.

Blatherskite Wed 16-Mar-16 21:30:35

Mini Eggs are horrible now.

My 6 year old took a bite out of a creme egg and then ditched it!
