Cadbury flake gone to sh*t as well. No difference now to the type of chocolate they sell in America. Hersheys, and twinkies, and all that crap.

Mondelez took over Cadbury a few years back as far as I know.

Lidl or Aldi chocolate, even the cheap stuff, is nicer than Cadbury now. Lidl have a thin hazelnut praline bar on special at the moment - 59c for 100g bar and it's delicious

Of the christmas tubs, the only one I actually like any more is Quality Street, I genuinely wouldn't bother taking a tub of Roses if they were giving them away - they are just plain nasty.

Funny was thinking about that earlier does anyone remember the ads on Telly for Cadbury’s dairy milk years back where they showed a bar and said every bar was made with a glass of Irish milk. I wonder was it it? Tasted better.

A glass and a half!

They never stated what size glass or what size bar, though.

I used to be a big cadbury eater, but ever since Kraft took it over its gone to the dogs, none of its chocolate is the same anymore.

What I used to love were the bars of dairy milk in the foil, much fresher. Even the Easter eggs taste horrible now.

I don't know what they've done to it but Cadburys chocolate doesn't melt half as well as it used to a few years ago.

Since Mondelez took over Cadbury, everything is just stuffed with palm oil. It's all disgusting now. Agree with other posters saying that Aldi and Lidl chocolate is much nicer. The majority of it seems to still contain cocoa instead of palm oil.
