Something suss about flakes
Guys, I just got a Sundae from Maccas and for the first time in probs 10 years I got a flake with it. Something suss is going on big time because the flake was practically tasteless. All the other reviews on here saying it was too sweet, well mine was too tasteless. It was literally just a tasteless substance in my mouth and I can tell you I wasn't happy about it.
If you're thinking about adding a flake next time you're in old Ronnie's drive thru I have two words for you: Don't bother!!
Tell ya what you gotta have a listen here
Ok so first off I’d like to just say HELL YEA CHOCOLATE! But I just took a poo and I’m sick at the moment and it literally looks like a sunken pile of crushed up flake and I’m scared. But it got me thinking god damn flakes are GOOD, going to go get one later I reckon. Onya cobber
I have never understood exactly why anyone would choose to buy a Flake chocolate bar, unless perhaps as part of a cake decoration. They are so so boring, and so very flaky! Chocolate crumbs are always a potential problem, but Flakes are pretty much a packet of crumbs waiting to scatter all over the bed, the carpet, your lap, or anywhere else that you happen to have them. I have never been impressed by the Flake chocolate bar, and never will be.
Bad, new cheap rubbish design
Terrible new design of cheap wrapping and cheap chocolate, which is NOT Cadbury’s original dairy milk chocolate. It doesn’t even claim to be real dairy milk chocolate.. we have let this company cheapen their products while charging more and lowering the standard to the point where we can’t blame them because we buy the rubbish! It’s the same with cream eggs, which are not Cadbury dairy milk now either. This company is now only for people who don’t care about the taste enough to notice while wolfing it down.. I also see the good reviews here are...by people trying to rate the old version (which was nice).. without even trying the new version, which is hard and bland/ sugary, just like the creme egg.. bye Cadbury’s I will never purchase this ott money making scheme gone too far chocolate.
My love for flake died! :-(
Taking that first bite of flake was like heaven in your mouth! well that was until they changed the packaging of the 12 in a pack. It's sealed both ends maybe even different formula, it's hard and tastes different, now it feels like taking a bite of dried turd! So disappointed
How to ruin perfection???!!!
Since a child in the 70's Flakes have been my all time fave. The soft, crumbly, melt in your mouth goodness.
My daughter and I bought a packet of mini's last night. They were not the same old recipe... they are hard, don't crumble and tasted ordinary. Such a shame the big company are chasing the buck at the expense of good chocolate and appreciators of good chocolate. No longer a fan of Cadbury's... going to change brands. Farewell dear Flakes of old... thank you old Cadbury's for your 'glass and a half'. It was much appreciated.
Not flaky at all!! Hard as a rock!!
I've just bought a pack of mini flakes and they are terrible. Haven't bought these for some time and won't be buying them again. They used to be light and flaky but these were as hard as a rock. I bought them to decorate a cake (I wanted to crumble them over the cake) but I had to literally bash them in a bag with a mallet to break them up. I went back to the Woolworth store I bought them from and felt the other packets on the shelf and they felt exactly the same. So for this reason and the fact that they are Halal certified (why they need to be is beyond me) I won't be buying them again.
Dry and sugary
Chocolate texture not smooth, more dry as if missing cocoa butter. Quality of Cadbury Flake completely gone, would never buy it again. Contacted Cadbury was told it may be dry because of heat effect, but safe to consume, your choice to consume or throw it way. Where is the good old Cadbury Flake. Cadbury does not stand for quality anymore, so much for the statement "Cadbury means quality" on the packet.
They stuffed it literally
If you break one open look at it cross sectional and notice that the product is made differently more as a bar whereas previously texture and taste were connected now the flake texture is only skin deep and texture has been created by recipe producing a loss of the previous taste where previously it was layered right through with the greatest taste. No more Cadbury for me and all the folks that I know.
