Cadbury enrages chocolate lovers by claiming to be “larger.” ‘The lies!’ says Dairy Milk, which appears to be the same size.
CADBURY has enraged customers when one shopper pointed out that the company’s “larger” Dairy Milk bars are actually smaller.
A Reddit user shared a photo comparing Cadbury’s ‘Now Bigger’ Dairy Milk range to a regular-sized bar. The image reveals no size difference, and the unsatisfied user captioned it, “Bro, what do you meannn??”
“The falsehoods sure have!” retorted one enraged chocolate fan. “They’re telling you that you’ve grown bigger,” said another.
“You people don’t get it,” a third joked. It is currently far larger than it will ever be. It’s not a sales pitch; it’s information.”
“If you flip it over and read the tiny print, it is 6.6g compared to the typical 6.3g,” another pointed out. “An extra 0.3g!” exclaims the narrator.
“That suggests the ‘normal’ size is about to be shrunk, even if just slightly,” a fifth added. This is how food manufacturers conceal shrinkage.
“They produce a new ‘larger’ version at the same price, lower the standard size while customers move to the bigger size, raise the price on the bigger so customers return to the now smaller standard, and finally eliminate the bigger. It’s done all the time for morning cereals, although their larger sizes are referred to as family sizes.”
“I’m still irritated that the crème eggs have shrunk,” said another user.

Cadbury’s new Twirl Breakaway bars, which are actually two bars of swirls and curls inside layers of crispy wafer and coated in Dairy Milk chocolate, have aroused discussion.
On Instagram, newfoodsuk posted a photo of the new bar, and many customers agreed. “Isn’t this just a Timeout?” someone inquired. “Sooo it’s a Timeout?” said another.
Despite the similarities, consumers were eager to get their hands on the new chocolate. “OMG NEEEEEEEEDDD,” one person exclaimed. “I can’t tell you how much I need these,” another added.
