Cadbury shrinks size of Dairy Milk sharing bar
Parent company Mondelez blamed costs associated with the production of its chocolate spiking, as it reduced the bars' size from 200g to 180g.They are still typically being sold at £2 despite the downsize. At the time, Cadbury chocolate bars sold in multipacks, including popular treats like Crunchies, Twirls and Wispas, were reduced in size to reduce their calorie count, Mondelez said. Separately, the UK's food standards watchdog warned of the sale of counterfeit "Wonka" chocolate bars on Monday. Tina Potter, Head of Incidents at the FSA, said: "With Easter less than a month away, it is more important than ever that parents and grandparents are aware of the risks that these bogus chocolate bars could pose to their children, particularly those living with a food allergy or intolerance."If you have bought these knock-off bars, do not eat them or give them to friends and family. In 2013 fake Wonka chocolate bars containing bogus "golden tickets" were seized by trading standards officers in Suffolk.
