My Easter favourites bunny tin
I have just opened my sealed with tape Easter rabbit tin of favourites.
I selected two Picnic pieces, very disappointing. The nuts are stale and not crisp. It seems that these tins are filled with inferior products. I often buy the share packes and never encountered stale picnic bars before.
You have stolen my Easter.
Unsure of price of item as received as a gift.
Purchased the Favourite pack not noticing it was the Party box. A complete waste of money and totally disappointed in the variety. I am regretting the fact that I bought two boxes and wouldn't even give them away as an Easter gift. It looks like they will be binned and I will not buy them again.
Why fix what’s not broken
Disappointed that these have changed to smallCadbury milk chocolate and old gold and one dream pieces of chocolates with one picnic one Moro. Not one of my favourites which you only ever got one of and had to swap with other family to get a couple and that is Turkish delight so disappointed. Why do big companies have to fix what’s not broken. If you want to fix them take out old gold and replace with a few more Turkish delights. Bought these as we had a box of roses in October and they were disgusting.
The Party Box is Misleading and Dissapointing
Come on Cadbury, Favourites are Favourites. None of our favourites where in the so called "Party box". It was just full of rubbish and sickening mini chocolate bars which we have now thrown out. Bought them thinking it was the usual but the packaging was very misleading. Never again.
Made me ill - twice now, like a bad hangover
After the disappointment of the 'party' box not containing the chocolates we were expecting (no cherry ripes, crunchies etc, just freddos and awful strawberry and pineapple things), I got really ill after eating about four of them. I had a glass of wine too, so I figured it was the wine. But, three days later in the middle of the afternoon I shared two chocolates from the box with my toddler and started feeling the same way shortly afterward. I've eaten Cadbury since I was her age, but I don't think we will again. Very disappointing and concerning.
Cadbury Favourites vs Cadbury Favourites Party Edition
Well, it was by accident I bought two boxes of the Cadbury Favourites "Party Edition" for my sons' birthdays. I just assumed they would contain the usual variety and didn't look closely at what in fact was included. What a massive disappointment these were. There were Freddos and Twirls which were passable but not great, but the rest of the box remained uneaten (a first for my boys) - it was full of those ghastly new 'Marvellous Creations' chocolates, as well as about 10 each of the pineapple and strawberry Snack chocolates. Since when has Snac...k been anyone's favourite! I'm surprised Snack is still even around. I have given Cadbury my feedback as this was the worst box of chocolates I have ever bought. Really, it's like they're trying to get rid of all of the chocolates that don't sell well in this mixed box. Not buying these anymore - very bad value. Not to mention the massive size reduction in the bars over the years. Seems like they're making their chocolates cheaper with lots more sugar and cheaper syrupy ingredients. Gah!
I could eat this all the time but you still need to improve
i love Cadbury Favorites but i am a bit ashamed because there are hardly any flakes and bubbly's (mint) and all the rest of the flavors in the box are available in huge amounts. there are only about two flakes and two bubbly's and i think that's a terrible amount. I'm a bit unimpressed as the whole family enjoys flakes and bubbly's.
I used to love them but now they don't have enough variety, why do they have dairy milk? if I wanted to eat dairy milk, I would just buy a block...also Freddo's you can buy them separately, they have gone down in my opinion, with not enough variety....my family all agree with this as well.
Long time buyer and eater
I have been buying Cadbury's Favourites for a long long time and always look out for them when they are on "Special" - Wow! they were 1/2 price at Coles just recently. On opening the boxed "Favourites" into the usual chocolate bowl sitting on the dinning room table I looked for my favourite "Turkish delight" and was shocked to find there were non in the pack - on closer examination there was only 1 "Cherry Ripe".
I did write to the manufacturers - but only a day or so ago and they would not have had time to acknowledge my letter before writing this review.
My wife usually buys this product and last night, she couldn't taste any chocolate at all.
After reading the back of the pack, its now 26% cocoa solids and her previous packs were 36% cocoa solids bought in Dec16 when on special. She remarked that even Woolworths own brand is 33% and some Aldi chocolate is 39%.
I'm not much of a chocolate person, but I'm guessing this is the end of the line for Cadbury.
A thumbs down from John Semens.
John Semens loves chocolate. John Semens also loves variety. Needless to say, one would suspect that Cadbury Favourites Boxed would be a perfect fit for John Semens, but you could never be more wrong. Imagine, relaxing at home about to watch Brokeback Mountain for the 3rd time when you open up your box of Cadbury's supposed "Favourites". To John Semens' horror not only was there a misrepresentation of variety, but a variety which could only be described as 'Satan's Favourites'. Nothing but Boost and Crunchies, with a singular Moro bar as if to add insult to injury. John Semens can't recommend this in good conscious and suggests you look for alternatives.
My wife bought a box of CF for a treat tonight and I could not believe how each chocolate has been reduced in size since I last sampled them. Probably like many other companies, reduce product to save and reward shareholders. I doubt if any of you hungry people have ever increased size to reward consumers.
Size reduction for your product.
