Cadbury Chocolate Slammed for Changing Recipe

 

Chocolate maker Cadbury has been flooded with customer calls after it was revealed the company removed some cocoa butter from its recipe and replaced it with palm oil, claiming the change in recipe would not change the taste.

Cadbury Australia was quick to answer the call, with managing director Mark Callaghan saying: "We are removing palm oil and returning to a cocoa butter only recipe for Cadbury's entire moulded block chocolate range..."

One of Cadbury's staunchest critics, Hobart's Nina Middleton-Tubb, said: "If people can change chocolate, they can change the world. It is good that they listened to the fact that people didn't like it."

  Hell yeah!  
 
Because changing a bar of chocolate back to how it was by complaining is exactly the same way to change the planet back to how it used to be. All we have to do is complain to somebody.

  Complain too much and  
 
you'll be labelled a terrorist and be put on a no-fly list. Complain even more and you'll be thrown in jail.

Now eat your chocolate and be quiet.

  This is why...  
 
Tasmanian women aren't allowed out of the house and why they are encouraged not to breed, they are dumb as bat shit.

  It's simple...  
 
If you're going to change a recipe for a product like chocolate you have to market it as a different product...as it IS a different product!

  Cadbury isn't Chocolate  
 
They did this crap in Great Britain too, which is why they have to call it Dairy Milk or "family milk chocolate." They aren't allowed to call it Chocolate in the EU because of reduced the coca butter content and the addition of cheap vegetable oils. Anything for a buck it seems...or a Euro.

  Well  
 
the main reason everyone was so annoyed here was because of the environmental impact of cutting down rainforests to make way for palm oil plantations, which puts orangutans at risk apparently... Auckland zoo went as far as removing all their stocks of cadbury products. I'm mainly annoyed that at the same time they made the switch, they changed the packaging to hide the fact the blocks have gotten smaller!
