    Cadbury fans gutted

    The choc giant has ditched its Dairy Milk 30 per cent less sugar bar just four years after its launch.

    The lower calorie option, which first hit shelves back in 2019, will no longer be available for purchase because “demand for this product has dropped”, Cadbury confirmed.

    Mondelez – formerly Kraft – which bought Cadbury back in 2010 – launched the 85g share bar as a slightly healthier alternative to the iconic Dairy Milk.

    And at the time they pledged the 30 per cent less sugar bar was “just as irresistibly smooth and creamy as our original Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate, but with 30 per cent less sugar and satisfaction in every single mouthful”.

    A history Caramac bars

    They were pitched as a "new kind" of chocolate and quickly became popular amongst Brits.

    Caramac had its heyday in the 70s and 80s, but remained a popular snack throughout the following decades.

    Remembering another Nestle icon

    Willy Wonka is perhaps the most famous chocolatier in the world, even if he isn't real.

    But Nestlé has tried to bring the magic to life several times, producing their own Wonka Bar.

    The beloved Wonka Bar used to be available to purchase across the US and the UK.

    However, the delectable treat was discontinued in 2010 due to poor sales.

    One Twitter user recently wrote alongside a photo of the memorable chocolate bar: "I still think about the discontinued Nestle Wonka Bar to this day.

    "I swear it’s the best chocolate I’ve ever eaten and it had little graham cracker pieces in it and nobody ever remembers."

    M&M fans mourn discontinued flavours

    M&M fans in the use have shared their heartbreak at a beloved flavour being discontinued.

    Chili Nut M&M had a relatively short shelf lifeline after the chocolate giant introduced the flavour in 2016.

    The treat featured M&M's standard chocolate-covered peanut but with a spicy hot kick.

    The flavour was released to M&M fans for a limited time in a promotion contest alongside two other nut flavours – Coffee Nut and Honey Nut flavours.

    However the product failed to win the vote and was ultimately discontinued.

    "These were great, much better than the flavor that won," one person wrote on X, previously known as Twitter.
