The UK’s beloved Cadbury’s is known for its flavourful inventions but the popular chocolate company has also removed many popular snacks from the shelves.
After over 100 years of producing the nation’s favourite chocolate, the Bourneville-based company continues to attract new customers across the globe. On Thursday (Oct 13), fans were delighted when Cadbury announced the flavour of their two Mystery Bars as Rhubarb & Custard and Blue Raspberry Slushie.
However, every so often Cadbury decides to remove one of their products from the shelves - chocoholics across the UK will be familiar with a few of the fallen victims.
Ten Cadbury treats no longer available to buy in UK
Here’s a round-up of all of the Cadbury chocolate treats no longer available to buy in UK stores.
1. Cadbury’s Snow Flake
With a smooth milk chocolate finish on the outside and a soft, crumbly white chocolate centre. The Cadbury Snow Flake was designed in 2000 and was discontinued in 2008. The bar was a worthy alternative to the Twirl and one that chocoholics would swear by.
The Cadbury Snow Flake is available to buy in Australia.
2. Dream Bar
Still manufactured in Australia and South Africa, the Dream Bar may be one of the more recognised snacks on the list. The Dream Bar is Cadbury’s take on the Nestle’s Milkybar… except Cadbury uses real cocoa butter.
In 2019, Cadbury re-launched the range under new name Cadbury White.
3. Cadbury Snaps
Launched in 2004 and discontinued in 2010, these Pringle-shaped chocolate thins came in a variety of flavours including orange, hazelnut and mint. The concave crisps were a favourite snack for many during the 00s.
There have since been petitions to get the snack back on the shelf.
4. Wispa Mint
While the temporarily discontinued Wispa bar was brought back by an internet campaign, the Wispa Mint wasn’t as popular and was shelved in 2003. However, the retro snack is generally considered one of the more popular Cadbury items that have been discontinued, with many people asking for the minty bar to be re-launched.
5. Cadbury Nuts about Caramel
Nuts about Caramel - which sponsored Coronation Street in 1998 - was discontinued after just four years. The nutty caramel combo also appeared as an ice cream lolly and is still sold in the UK. There are still campaigns online from disgruntled fans to bring back the milk chocolate bar.
6. Time Out Bar
In the early 90s, Time Out was introduced as a bar consisting of a ripple of milk chocolate between two wafers, smothered in Dairy Milk milk chocolate. In 2016, it was replaced by the Wafer Time Out. The orginial bar even came with the slogan, “the wafer break with a layer of Flake“ - catchy right?
7. Cadbury Marble
Cadbury Marble also sponsored Corrie for a while. The bar contained Dairy Milk milk chocolate and Dream white chocolate blend with hazelnut praline centre. After a successful campaign, a new version of the Cadbury Marble bar was reintroduced into Australia in 2020 but there is no news on whether the much-loved chocolate bar will return to stores in the UK.
8. Cadbury Fuse
Fuse was Cadbury’s fastest selling new chocolate bar since the launch of Cadbury ‘Wispa’ in 1983 and contained peanuts, raisins, crisp cereal and fudge pieces. In 2015, Cadbury launched the #CadburyCraveyard campaign, where fans took to Twitter to vote which choclate bar, out of Fuse or Marble, they wanted to resurrect for Halloween.
Fuse won and was distributed to 100 lucky winners.
9. Aztec Bar
Produced in 1967, the Aztec Bar combined nougat and caramel, and was covered with milk chocolate. It was made to compete with the Mars Bar but only lasted a little over a decade.
10. Cadbury’s Spira
The bar was a product in the form of a hollow twisted spiral with two individual fingers in each pack. Cadbury developed the product to target teenagers or 15-24 age group and it was a massive success.
