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.

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.

Purchased in September 2019 at Woolworths for $3.00.

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

Never expected this . Who is responsible ?


All around me the world's spiralling out of control and now my all time favourite chocolate is longer the smooth creamy not too sweet indulgence that I could treat myself with . I will not be buying Cadburys or recommending it anymore .

disappearing chocolate


just wondering how much Cadbury can reduce the size of their chocolate blocks and the size of the chocolates in their fun packs before we are buying empty packets!

Purchased at The Reject Shop for $2.50.

Poor cheap quality


Cadbury quality has gone downhill!! Curly Wurlies dont taste like they use to and are made in Poland!! Full size blocks are puny in size yet price remains the same. Seriously Cadbury how long are u going to last??

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

Why change the recipie


Why does this taste so different?? Yuck.
Also brought hubby a box of roses for father's day and eeeww. Liquid turkish delight was not nice and no one is going back to the box for seconds.

Purchased in August 2019 for $4.50.

Not worth the calories


Do not like the new recipe at all, has a horrible after taste and has tainted all my childhood memories of Cadbury’s chocolate. Will not be buying any Cadbury’s Easter eggs this year!!

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?

Hazelnut hardly any in the block used to be loaded and yes the chocolates just not the same , a shame getting Darrell Lea now that has really improved in variety

No good, I love chocolate and Cadbury’s have got it wrong. You changed it years ago and people stopped eating it, need to go back to the original recipe. Now eat Nestle. Change back or go broke. Andrew B

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?

Unlikely, Prof Julius Sumner Miller must have taken the recipe to his grave !.

As I am not a company rep I can only answer as a consumer. I love Cadbury chocolate


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.........
