I brought the mint milk dark. I have no idea why they even put the word mint on the packet there was absolutely no mint flavour at all. I will never buy Cadbury again even the plain chocolate just has a texture of sugar granules. I think i will stick with frys mint chocolate omg amazing on and Aldi chocolate is thousands times better then Cadbury.
Purchased in November 2019 for $1.50.
Give it a miss.
Cadbury's has reduced the size of their blocks of chocolate yet again, this time to 180 gram instead of the 200 gram blocks and say that they did this in order to keep the price down. In actual fact most supermarket shelves show it costing more than the 200 gram blocks. The recipe is terrible. It is like eating chocolate flavoured wax. Quite a few years ago they went to using palm oil and they recieved a lot of complaints. I wrote a letter of complaint and they wrote back saying they had listened to their customers and reinstated the original r...ecipe. I thought that was pretty good. This time they aren't listening though. Something has changed in their recipe and it's awful. We have given Cadbury's the flick now. If you want some really nice chocolate that leaves Cadbury's for dead try some of the chocolates from ALDI. They are very nice. Also, BigW stocks chocolate from a New Zealand comapny called Whittaker's and it's beautiful. Their chocolate comes in 250Gr blocks and the price is only slightly more than a 180 gr block of Cadbury's. It's a no brainer. Once you try it you will be very pleasantly surprised. Vote your displeasure by buying anything but Cadbury's. They'll have two choices in the end. Either listen to the customers' complaints or go broke if everyone stops buying their products.

This product causes dental injury
Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate bar -POPCORN
This description assumes the buyer is purchasing "chocolate covered popcorn"
This isn't true!
I havn't done a biopsy of what occurs when you bite into this bar, but it's not all soft.
There beneath the chocolate and popcorn is a rock hard stone. Not sure if it is popcorn related or candy? Rest assured this landmine can dislodge a cavity, a crown or much worse.
Coles now sell this $2.00 product for 0.50c
A dentist visit to correct the damage eg: $500
You do the math of hypocrisy : Coles saying this product is "on sale"
Certainly not for the buyer.
Cadbury looses my vote. Yuk and so unethical.
Used to love Cadbury. Now its sugar and no cocoa taste. Not creamy just sickly. Plus Palm oil is now so unethical. Orangutans killed for forests of revolting palm oil. Change like Whittakers as they use minimum and tastes so much better. I cant eat Cadbury crap anymore even on special. So sad.
Would have given minus a star if possible
Ive loved Cadbury chocolate for years but I do not buy it any more and have even thrown it in in the bin if I get any it is so bad its Galaxy for me now. Also dont try to push the chopped almonds as a good thing since it was necessary as the bar is no longer thick enough to encase a whole one. BAD BAD BAD
Just bloody Awful!!
Cadbury is nothing more than tasteless Garbage. A lot of people are saying its " sickly sweet"- not sure where the sweet comes into it by the *sickly* chemicalised processed crap comes to mind. Cadbury used to have a chocolatey, creamy fresh taste to it. All it tastes like it's that its permanently passed the used by date and that's being polite! Cadbury Breakaway used to be the best years ago when cadbury was once good.
The new creations they sadly dream up is nothing more than utter trash. Vegemite one- oh my god what an utter failure plus the chip garbage. Quit while you can, no one is impressed. Your quality has been fed to the sharks @_@
Haven't bought it for years. They ruined the recipe the minute they sold it to Anerica. All sugar and no cocoa. I felt like crying it is honestly sickly sweet with no real original Cadbury taste. All these new blocks they have brought out what a JOKE. I don't want CC's in my chocolate. Cadbury what a total sham. You destroyed what was once just beautiful. I'd jail you all if I could sad sad sad.
Nasty sugary taste
I am so disappointed with milk chocolate i bought one from coles it was on special and ended up not being able to finish it because of the nasty taste. It used to be creamy and not too sweet, i think they changed the recipe for worse. I tried other one cadbury imported from ireland and it was beautiful.. what a shame
What has happened to Cadbury dairy milk chocolate?
I have noticed a distictive change in the taste of Cadbury dairy milk chocolate and i must say, not for the better. I've always loved Cadbury until they slipped in Palm oil some years ago. Cadbury saw the error of their ways and reverted to the tried and true receipe. It seams they are making changes again. Seriously, there is an old saying.... Don't try and fix something that's not broken!
By the way, i've just tried chocolate from Aldi and it's alright. I figure if i no longer like the Cadbury that's being dished up then i should look at alternatives.
I guess the CEO at Cadbury will still get the yearly bonus for saving money and increasing short term profits.....but for how long?
Purchased in August 2019 for $4.60.
Why change an old favourite
I have been told by several people that Cadbury Dairy Milk didn’t taste the same, once again they are changing the recipe, like the last time when they added palm oil, we all know how that turned out. Even my brother stopped eating it, telling me it didn’t taste like the Cadbury he was used to eating. I decided to try it for myself. I’m not a regular chocolate eater, but when I do I like to buy my favourites, which are fruit & nut or plain and I immediately noticed the difference in taste straight away. Once again they have changed the recipe, ...not the palm oil fiasco like before, but this time by using artificial sweeteners. During a search online, I read that it now has 30% less sugar and replaced with artificial sweetener. Explains why it tastes so bad now. Why change a recipe that’s been around for 100 years. I ended up throwing half the chocolate away and got a refund for the other, I could not eat it, it was way too sweet and had no flavour. Also in my purchases I bought Darrel Lea, new releases at the time to try it and to see if their chocolate was the same as I remember as a kid growing up, no change, an old favourite that hasn’t change and will now be my go to for a chocolate fix when I need one. Definitely not buying Cadbury anymore. Learn from your mistakes Cadbury. You had a major problem when you changed the recipe before, obviously you have not learned from your previous mistake so you decided to make a change once again which will eventually be your downfall in the near future

Questions & Answers
Bring back the traditional Cadbury's Chocolate taste... original recipe please. You have spoilt the chocolate by changing it and adding weird ingredients/tastes that might be acceptable and loved by overseas folk, such as the American's but Aussie taste buds are not used to sickly sweet palm oil soaked and added oddments such as hazelnut oil etc in hazelnut chocolate. Yuck! I will NOT be buying Cadbury's again and would NEVER recommend it to any one.
I used to love Cadbury's Dairy Milk but something has gone horribly wrong. It tastes sickly, almost has a slimey feel
- its good really, I should eat less sugar and this is going to be easy to say goodbye to now. Shame though, does anyone know of a good replacement? In truth a Lego brick would be a good replacement for this garbage but is there anything more like the original product?
Blob,After all the rain we have had it should be pretty easy to mould together something for you from the sludge the down pour has stirred up,Seriously though has any one read any defence from any of Cadbury's representatives to explain our concerns regarding their product,They have TOO much of our money and no concern for how they got it.Cheer's Krusty.
Are we ever going to see Cadbury bring back the old recipe?
Professor Sum De Miller would not be happy...
I wish they would with all my heart, but Cadbury are dealing with this huge issue by simply denying that the recipe has changed - in other words their Customers mean absolutely nothing compared to the almighty Dollar. I so, so miss the original Cadbury Chocolate, there was nothing like it on this earth, and there never will be again. Take Care in this changed world of ours Pete, all the best.........
