As is our wont, from time to time we have a bit of a chocolate pig-out, with varying brands and types of chocolate.
The latest one was extremely unsatisfying. The hazelnut Cadbury just didn't feel or taste right, so we had a look at the ingredients list on the new packaging and found that the composition had been altered.

New ingredients list
5% less cocoa solids and - by extrapolation - probably 5% vegetable fat.
Unfortunately Cadbury, your product has now gone from "average, but acceptable" to "inedible". From chocolate to compound chocolate. We will not be purchasing it anymore. We threw out the white "chocolate" as its texture was like candle wax.
We'll be eating Lindt and Whittakers from now on. Though that's not much of a sacrifice, I think ;-)
This sure explains why the Old Gold chocolate has turned hard as a rock. I was putting it down entirely to the change in weather...
... and I forgot to mention that it no longer contains large pieces (whole or half hazelnuts) but just hazelnut shrapnel now.
reduced quality AND reduced quantity.
They've also reduced the quantity... from 250g to 200g.
Cadbury Australia shame shame shame
MacRobertson would be turning in his grave.
Backdown but what about the Old Gold?
They backed down. Vegetable Fat will be gone from the Dairy Milk. BUT.... I'm an Old Gold fan. Or was. There is no word on it being gone from O.G. And the vegetable fat does not make it taste better.
