Cadbury blocks are half price at Woolworths and include Caramilk! :D
Upcoming price found in Woolworths catalogue.
Honestly don't know why they keep removing and bringing it back but enjoy!
Caramilk was taking up half the display the other day at Colesworth. Cadbury must finally be producing more of it to suit the high demand.
I don't believe in the high demand, it's all media hype. No different than when they tell you to raid the toilet paper.
Btw, Kit-Kat Gold is the real deal caramilk.
Exactly! What high demand?? All I saw was a glutton of this product sitting on the shelves and on displays and no one was touching the stuff.
Thx God. Yup
Well no shit, it's chocolate. What do you expect?
Haha exactly and it is not even real chocolate. Who cares I love caramilk.
It's not even chocolate
Exactly but Gilby15 loves going around leaving negative comments on people leaving comments on the truth about products.
For a 25g serving size!
Who can stop @25g??
It's 57.8g sugar per 100g
I just have my serving with a bit of extra sugar on top
When I still ate this - used to bury pieces in Connoisseur ice cream.
My Dr said no! Too much fat & sugar for me.
Pity can't block these chocolate Deals - I'm too tempted😉
wHat thiS is hIGh in suGaR unbeliEvaBle O_o
These blocks keep getting smaller. Would much rather buy Aldi 200g blocks like the Caramel Block that's still on special for $1.99
On that note, would love to see Aldi's take on Caramilk. Their chocolate is so good!
Never tried the Caramilk. Maybe someone can comment on the difference between it and the Aldi Caramel Block I mentioned above.
They are not similar at all. Was more referring to how Aldi have a knack of producing similar products, cheaper, and good quality, therefore it would be interesting to see how good their version of caramelised white chocolate (caramilk) would be.
Well one is milk chocolate with caramel and the other is basically white chocolate with caramel flavouring.
From the introduction of metric in the 1960s until the mid 80s they were 200g blocks. In the late 80s they grew to 250g. Over time Cadbury has been making them smaller again.
What I miss is the real foil wrapper and Julius Sumner Miller doing the ads - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJX_qmXn9no
Thanks just when I had my bad cholesterol under control.
It's $5 at my Woolies in North Queensland and this is the first they have had stock for 6 months or more. I've been buying a couple of the Caramilk Twirl bars each shop which have been on constant $1 special for a couple of months. I read an article somewhere that shows you how to make it out of Milky Bar chocolate which basically entails reheating it to caramelise the sugar in it. We don't have an Aldi's, a Costco, an Ikea etc. so whenever Coles/Woolies run low on stock on items because we are so far from the distribution centres there are no alternatives. Strangely, Coles and Woolies here seem to swap being out of stock of different things. One week there will be no chicken breast at one and then none at the other the next week and it runs the same with hundreds of common items. I've started doing alternate home deliveries.
Do you want me to post you some Aldi chocolate?
LOL. Thanks but I'm a diabetic so 2 small bars a week is more than I should have. If I had a whole bar I would eat the lot in one sitting and sleep the sugar coma off for the rest of the day.
Sale starts IN 2 DAYS!
Ahh. Didn't read that part. Doh!
Many don't, so put it in bold😉
@the INFIDEL: I'm living vicariously through other's enjoyment of it. It's very nice IMHO and it's a constant toss-up whether to buy some when it's available or keep my toes and eye-sight. So far the chocolate is losing.
@bigpallooka: I meant to enjoy - in moderation!
Read your sugar coma comment…
Yes, Diabetes is a great concern. Met a guy who had lost his toes due to it.
So have the eyes & feet checked regularly.
I've enjoyed chocolate far too much in the past. Am OK until I have some, then want more until it's all gone.
Diabetes in the family, so no chocolate allowed.
@the INFIDEL: Sugar is basically beautiful, delicious poison. I have very little self-control, so I try not to tempt myself…sometimes I even succeed!
@bigpallooka: Cadbury considers 25g as a serve!
Who eats just 25g!
Chocolate is a comforting food. It has an affect like some hormones involved in love.
Adding the high sugar content (57.8%) in this - It's easy to get hooked!
I worked with a therapist to reduce my fondness for chocolate. (Often due to psychological causes & upbringing. My mother conspired with me when I was very young, to hide & eat chocolate so my controlling father didn't know!) After a while I could walk down the chocolate aisle without any craving.
Now more than a tiny amount of chocolate makes me physically ill - that stops the cravings!
@the INFIDEL: It's sad how many of us have eating issues. Glad to hear you worked it out.
@bigpallooka: You're not alone!
@bigpallooka: Unfortunately more remote communities here often have high rates of diabetes. Good fresh food is rare & expensive.
At least you have a good fresh food market & supermarkets in Cairns!
Visiting areas like Okinawa in Japan, they have some of the oldest people in the world - partly from a good healthy diet & belief in leaving the table a little hungry. They look fairly young & thin, but may be over 90.
The young often have a fast food diet, poor health, & are morbidly obese…
@the INFIDEL: I'm a fair bit south of Cairns (which is Far North Queensland) near the Whitsunday Islands. The forced lock down and then imposing self-isolation for my son and myself has inspired us to start gardening. I have four small raised Garden beds with veges, and we are working on our fifth. I had to go for the raised beds because of my crap back and access for my son's wheelchair but it's very satisfying trimming spinach leaves off the plant to wash and put straight into a stir-fry. The other thing I have found is that purchasing a cheap Kmart Air Fryer means I don't order Red Rooster (etc.) home delivery as you can quickly cook some chicken fingers or similar straight from the freezer for much cheaper and you aren't having all the carb loaded chips and burger buns etc. Convenience foods are the bane of the modern world. The more processed the food is the less you have to work for the nutrition and the less nutritional value it has. It's a shame it took me 50 years to learn that.
@bigpallooka: Gardening can be very satisfying. I hope your son enjoys the outdoor activity & the healthy fresh food! Fresh spinach is great. Good idea designing the garden like that.
I used to teach gardening at a primary school in Brisbane, as a volunteer. The kids loved making weed salads - a nutritious dish of found greens that most would consider weeds. It was a great sharing experience. They went home & taught their parents!
Never too late to learn new skills & ways. I've spent a bit of time in FNQ.
I tried Caramilk after it came into stock this year. It's fine… but I don't get why people were going nuts over it several years ago.
Anyway, the price of Cadbury keeps going up as they shrink the blocks every few years.
Excellent marketing combined with artificially limiting stock to generate hype.
Ah….remember the Cadbury ads from the 80's with Julius Sumner Miller telling us of the goodness of a glass and a half of full cream milk in every 200g block?
Now the blocks don't have the glass and a half, or 200g, or full cream milk….
Why is it so
They use to be 250g back then :)
Interesting! Because this…
So they must have increased the size from that ad. Then reduced it again…
Honestly don't know why they keep removing and bringing it back but enjoy!
They have to do something to create the illusion of supply and demand shortage.
It's chocolate for heaven's sake, surely in 2020 there's nothing stopping them from making enough supply for everyone at a normal block price. They're obviously playing it up.
Yep even this stock is back for a limited time.
I agree. They love all the free publicity from the young media staff (who just surf the net like the rest of us and repost as stories thinking that's journalism. Somehow they get paid for it. Shows how low our standards have dropped for mainstream content).
The hype is more than Cadbury could have hoped for. Remember those that liked the original said it was different to the current one (despite Cadbury saying it was the same and nutrition panels showing there was a difference).
Conveniently missing during Easter…
they had caramilk mini eggs this easter, it was the first time i tried caramilk and found that i liked it
My taste buds couldn't discern the difference between cadbury dream white chocolate and the caramilk.
I worked in Sales for Mondelez… half price is normal. what you guys really should be trying to get is a mate who works at Mondelez - 5kgs of picnic bars = $5 on staff sales
In the good old days you'd go to the Cadbury factory in Hobart and get a kilos worth of chocolate for a few dollars.
Ah, it was the best. Going on the tour, getting free samples, then going to the shop afterwards to get the stuff they couldn't package and distribute.
These days they just break down the chocolate and sell it off to cattle feed producers.
It was $5 at my store. Picked up a 160gm Darrell Lea Bear Hug (Milk Chocolate/Blackcurrant Jellies/Honeycomb) for $2.50.
It starts tomorrow so check back then.
wasnt it yesterday that it starts tomorrow? So, today is tomorrow??
Look at the blue icon above that mentions "tomorrow"…Or even yet look at the calendar marked for 15 to 21st.
That's so yesterday!
When posted 2 days ago showed starts in 2 days - which is today
Caramilk is so over hyped imo. It's nice but nothing that will knock your socks off. Good price if you've never managed to try it tho.
These will go nicely with my exercise program. Thanks!
I tried Caramilk the other week to see what the hype was about. Honestly it's not that good, just tastes like slightly caramel-y white chocolate. Overly sweet too.
I ate a block over two days, half one day, half the next in the arvo on both days. Coincidentally I started farting badly shortly after eating both, so go figure.
Caramilk makes me fart.
