How shit is Cadbury chocolate

The whole point of most companies is to make money. Cadburys are doing that.
They may be now, but if they do not listen to the moans and concerns of the paying public, they will go the same way as Woolworths, BHS, Ratner's, and half a hundred other company's that did not listen, evolve, modernise and generally do the right thing, what ever that thing may be, do it or go under, Carillion comes to mind, bad management. Its not the product, its the management.
 
Well done, but the thread is about how shit their chocolate is.
Most of the public clearly don't think its shit, just those on here who are pretending to be chocolate connoisseurs.

When their sales take a massive dip they may be concerned as thats not happening I doubt they will worry.

Do you think Cadburys gave a fuck about the general public before they sold out to the yanks?
 
Not quite. Although Mars and his son were Americans, the first Mars bar was produced in England (Slough to be a little more exact) in 1932 while the American version made in USA was known as Milky Way.
Eh? Mars Bars weren’t mentioned.

Go back to sleep.

I eat Milky Bars so am not a chocolate connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination, Cadburys just tastes artificial now and if I notice that then there chocolate is shite

I had assumed your brain wasn't affected but it seems you are approaching old age fast.
Mars was written by you. I introduced Mars bars while explaining the Mars family connection.

A great many other people seemed to have not noticed.

Cadbury and every other food manufacturer have been pissing about with recipes since they started.

Because the Mars Corporation owns and makes Galaxy chocolate. It was in reference to the implication that the poster does not like American chocolate. No one mentioned mars bars.
 
It's phosphoric acid in Coke that does it but if it's for cleaning then just buy the bloody acid itself (it's used in brewing) too).
Available as milkstone remover in your local agricultural supplier and back in the day you could spend an awful lot of cash in Halfords on little black bottles of it with 'as used by the MoD' for painting on rust when it was packaged as Jenolite.
Coverts the iron oxide to iron phosphate if I remember my chemistry correctly.
 
Someone mentioned Sainsbury's Dark Fruit and Nut a few posts ago (cannot find the post) anyway thank you who ever it was.
Got some today and very nice it is to.
 
In a fit of nostalgia prompted by a recent edition of The Great British Bake Off (yeah, I know), I bought a packet of Burton's Waggon Wheels. I'm not going to start on about how titchy they are when they used to be the size of a small planet. I just wanted to say that I don't think that they are at all good.

Not, 'they're not as good as they used to be'. They are much as I remember them. The chocolate coating is homeopathically thin and of poor quality, as it always was and the biscuit centre tastes old and fusty, as it always did. The marshmallow filling is quite viscous and slobbery.

I realise that this will be considered heresy, but I rather think that we loved them as kids for the same reason that we loved anything that was cloyingly sweet. It was the heroin of sugar. Kids will happily spoon the entire contents of a tin of Golden Syrup into themselves, given half the chance.

So, I'm afraid that Waggon Wheels, for me, are quite shit and the smaller they become, the better.

There, I've said it.

(I still have three remaining in the packet. Any offers?)
