Wth Cadbury Roses.!!
Never have I regretted buying a Cadbury product until now. Never has a box of Cadbury Roses chocolates lastest more then a week in my house. Why are almost all the different chocolates all gritty?? What happened to strawberry cream?? Very very surprised and even more disappointed. Bring back ALL the originals PLEASE
roses chocolates a big step backwards
These used to be good chocolates but not anymore, how on earth they could put these out as a quality box of chocolates is beyond me,I used to buy these as a gift to people.But not anymore,it would be an insult now.What were these people at cadburys thinking when they decided to change the reciepe and put out this junk.I Won`t be buying any more roses.

Was gifted a box by my grandparents. I didn't know the flavours changed and tucked into peppermint. What a shock. I was revolted. Decided to look for strawberry to wash the flavour out. Where are the strawberry? Nowhere to be seen! This is very disappointing. Maybe my kid will eat them, because I can't.

I really hope this is a marketing ploy
When Coke changed the formula and there was an uptick in sales of Classic Coke and this is the only sane reason that I can think of for Cadbury's insane decision to fix something that wasn't broken.
Took me until now to finish a box I was given at Xmas, whereas in the past I could polish off a box in one sitting.
Will never buy Cadbury's again.
I am in my 50's and still have not forgiven Cadbury's for changing the "Snack" chocolate bar back in the 70's. The original Snack had texturally different fillings, but now it's the same textured filling...
Another taste icon disappears
Cadbury roses chocolates used to be a favourite. I loved the strawberry cream the best. Now I don’t like the taste of any of them. The chocolate has an awful taste and instead of being creamy they are gritty. Even the wrappers are not as good. Such a disappointment. I won’t be buying them anymore. Why change something that was good?

These are nothing like the quality Roses chocolates from the past. The texture & flavors of these new chocolates are nothing like the original and it’s disappointing Cadbury call these Roses when they aren’t comparable. Everything has been cheapened... the product & packaging. Interestingly, like with most Cadbury products, the reference to ‘a glass & a half of full cream milk’ has disappeared. I choose not to buy any Cadbury products anymore since their switch to palm oil. As for Roses specifically, they seem cheap compared to the famous Roses...of the past. Its such a shame Cadbury have ruined their once high quality product. I would have happily paid more if they’d stuck to their original recipes. Also, why did they stop making their classic Continental selection? This was an outstanding Cadbury product and if they made them again, exactly like they use to, I’d pay a premium. Hopefully they’ll come to their senses one day and start manufacturing their quality chocolates from the past again.
So disappointing Cadbury.
I expected the usual flavours like orange, strawberry and peppermint cream, but the only familiar flavour was Turkish delight. I hate the crunchy bits and the same boring regular shape they all come in. If you want to change these iconic chocolates after all these years add dark chocolate to your variety. I was very happy at first to get a large tin of these chocolates for Christmas, but I've still got them and I can't get rid of them. Even my husband doesn't enjoy eating them anymore.
I received a box of roses for Christmas. I don't like them because Cadbury destroyed the original. Nevertheless, I put them on the table for guests in case other people liked them. No one did. Now I have a full box of disgusting cheap tasting chocolates nobody likes. What a miserable comedown for an iconic Australian brand. I tried the hazelnut chip and it just left an awful aftertaste. In fact lots of Cadbury's chocolate tastes pretty cheap now. Sad

Questions & Answers
Surely changing roses is a mistake. The decreased sales must reflect this. Why do you persist in marketing this woeful product? Nobody likes them.
Im going to say this and I don’t care what I get back. I’m a kiwi. The Cadbury factory in Dunedin NZ used to make the chocolates. Now they’ve closed down. Since Aussie now makes Cadbury, they taste like crap. Sorry. But I don’t care they taste like crap. You’ve ruined a classic box that didn’t need to be changed. The one flavour I loved is now gone. I’ve tried every single flavour of the new box. No way will I ever buy these again. Whittaker’s chocolate, Lindt, quality chocolates, Farrero, and even kinder chocolate have by far surpassed you big time. They make the better product. All of them. So Cadbury, what are you gonna do about that? Because, in my opinion and by looks, most others too, they have all beaten you immensely in this competition
