Flakes are horrible now.


Bought a pack of 12 mini individually wrapped flakes and they tasted like the plastic they were wrapped in. They used to be one of my favourites but I will never buy them again.

This product is too sweet


The flake does not taste the same as it used to. It taste like I am eating a lot of sugar and is sweeter than it used to be. I will not buy flakes anymore.

Purchased in May 2019.

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.

Cadbury Flake is dead


Purchased a pack of 12 minis today. So disappointed. They're sweeter, not as chocolatey and they don't Flake like they used to. Terrible. Another product that Cadbury have buggered just like Red Tulip chocolate Easter Eggs.

Bad, new cheap rubbish design

Love cadbury chocolate, all types.Coles always has got good special. Mixed in with custard or yoghurt is heaven.yum yum yummy 4 ur tummy

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.

Twist and Shout


i just don't understand the new mini packaging - wheres the roll and twist? Like come on... if ain't broke don't fix it mate.
Really sad about this, feeling low, can't even have a flake to pick me up.

New mini fake


We have been loyal cadbury support for years are so disappointed with the new mini flake. They taste wrong and the wrapper are crap.

Dry and crumbly (fun size)


They don't taste like they're made from chocolate anymore. They're soapy and dry. Definitely changed the recipe for the worse

What happened to them?


Flakes used to be nice but now they are gross. I haven't tried the normal sized ones all that recently, but the fun size ones are disgusting. Not flaky and taste awful! Very disappointing.

New Cadbury flake mini.


Terrible. Not flaky and not same flavour. Cadbury go back to original recipe and method of wrapping. Been buying these for years. Why change something that's not broken.

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.

messy to eat with red tear strip


Maybe make red strip go round the end instead of down the side. Keeps crumbs inside ready to empty onto hand

ONe of my favourite chocolate bars, albeit a little expensive for the amount of chocolate that's in it!

Much nicer flavour than the bars of Cadbury chocolate, it doesn't seem to have that bitterness or aftertaste that the bar chocolate does.

Beautifully crumbly, although a little messy to eat.
