A warning for everyone as sometimes you don't realise until after you have bought it.
HERE we go again. Your chocolate is shrinking.

    decreasing sizes seems like an underhanded way of increasing the cost. i think increasing the rrp is a more open method.

    Any suggestions for alternatives as Cadbury can go jump.

    there are lots of alternatives, just check the shelves of woolworths, coles, aldi, etc

    Such confectioneryed outrage.. if you shop by unit price, it's irrelevant whether they increase prices / reduce quantities / both, you'll know what the deal is.

    Thats it, final straw. How can Abbott let this happen, he has to go!

    Send Cadburys a clear message but not buying their stuff. Their chocolates are no good anyway.

      The funny thing is they'll use this change to argue that they're doing the right thing by the community reducing portion size and therefore improving everyone's health.

        Australia needs a FAT tax on all unhealthy products like chocolate or sugary drinks. That has to go into the health funds. For all future Diabetes and heart disease costs.

    I wonder what the community would prefer. Inflation by increasing the price (which i think is more transparent, but don't let me influence you.) or inflation by reducing product size?

    Whittaker's is better in every way.

    Kraft can take their American vomit elsewhere.

      Haven't had it in a while, but when it first came to Oz, I thought it was very poor quality. Very gritty indicating insufficient conching and quite waxy.

    My guess is that Woolworths are about to receive stock of the new family sized Cadbury blocks.

    My local store is selling the family sized blocks, 220g and other variations, at $2 per block. There are displays in various parts of the store with the clearance price but the normal chocolate section still has them at the full $4.99 price.

    I can't guarantee this is available at all stores so I'm not going to post it as a deal but other members are welcome to do this if they find proof at their stores.

    Woolworths online are still showing the full price of $5.36 and in at least one variety they have both the 220gm and new size 200gm product at the same price.

    Happy hunting.
