Damn you all. I want chocolate now.

I think you mean you want Cadbury® brand Dairy Milk™ chocolate, the only chocolate bar with a glass and a half of full cream milk in every half pound!

That's more noticeable than when it gets used on actual telly!

Even worse, the logo used in France.

I'm sorry, I had to.

I don't know if it's too late to join in the party, but here it goes...

Correct. Daily Milk Turkish didn't replace Fry's Turkish Delight, unlike Bubbly replacing Wispa, which was later reverted. Caramel was just a name change.


A change of outfit, you mean.



Although since then they have reverted back to larger Caramel branding.

Wispa was actually retired by Cadbury a long while before Cadbury Dairy Milk Bubbly was launched and was a completely separate brand.

A Wispa doesn't use the Dairy Milk recipe at all, it's the same recipe that is used for Flake, Double Decker etc.

Both Wispa and Cadbury Dairy Milk Bubbly are still available at retailers.

Cadbury Ireland however have recently upset Irish residents by rebranding the Cadbury Moro to Cadbury Boost. Although both the same bars, Moro was a bigger brand in Ireland as Cadbury Dairy Milk Tiffin, Mint Crisp and Caramello are.

Cadbury Ireland actually use milk in their recipe for bars made in Dublin, whereas Cadbury UK use milk powder in there's and they aren't shy of telling people. The glass-and-a-half of Milk in every bar slogan has long gone in the UK but is still widely used on adverts in Ireland.

Yes but I always felt Dairy Milk Bubbly was supposed to be the spiritual successor to Wispa. I know it's a separate thing and is sold alongside Wispa.

Well, the chocolate talk continues, despite an attempt to bring the thread back on . . .
