Cadbury have discontinued a chocolate range which was popular with buyers at Christmas.

Cadbury Snaps were confirmed to have been discontinued earlier this year, but many fans of the treat are only catching up with the news as they search for the sweet treat over the festive period.

Fans reacted to the news sadly, explaining on social media how they used to regularly enjoy the “beautiful” chocolate crisps at Christmas.

Despite recent requests from fans to bring the chocolate back, Cadbury UK have only replied on X (formerly Twitter) to make it clear: “Cadbury Snaps have been discontinued, however we still have lots of other chocolatey treats to try.”

Thankfully, alternatives are still available, with chocolate lovers pointing out similar options are still available at stores including Aldi and Costco.

At Aldi the alternative chocolate snack are named Choceur Waves, meanwhile the Costco offerings are simply called Belgian Chocolate Thins.

While fans of Cadbury Snaps used social media to share their discovery of other similar chocolate options, chocolate lovers have also been reeling from Nestlé’s recent reveal that they have discontinued Caramac bars.

The popular red and yellow wrapped sweet was removed from shelves due to a “steady decline” in its sales, the company said on X in a statement published Wednesday (8th November).

Nestlé described the choice to axe the caramel flavoured treat which dated back to 1959 as “a difficult decision” and said they were “very sorry to disappoint fans of Caramac” with the news.

However, they too ended their statement by positively affirming: “This change will enable us to focus on our best-performing brands, as well as develop exciting new innovations to delight consumers’ tastebuds.”
