Cadbury Is No Longer Making Chocolate Coins And Everyone Is Seriously Upset

Right that's it, cancel Christmas immediately.

Posted on

So on Sunday, Telegraph features writer Harry Wallop asked Cadbury if the rumours he'd heard about the company no longer making chocolate coins were true.

Can it really be true? I hear @CadburyUK is not making chocolate coins this year. Disaster. Christmas stockings won't be the same

A short while later Wallop provided an update, saying Cadbury had told him the coins had been discontinued because they were "quite fiddly to produce".

CHOC COIN GATE UPDATE @CadburyUK replies to me: "straightforward commercial reasons why we discontinued - they are quite fiddly to produce"

And immediately everyone was seriously upset.

So @CadburyUK confirms (via @hwallop) that it no longer makes chocolate coins cos too fiddly. Sod it, we might as well cancel Christmas.

Some though suggested it could be a marketing stunt set up in time for Christmas.

Anyone wd think #cadburys stopping making chocolate coins a cheap pre-Christmas publicity stunt which will be reversed 'by public demand'.

Choc horror: Twitter outcry over @CadburyUK apparently stopping production of chocolate coins before Xmas. "Publicity stunt" you say? Cynic!

RIP Cadbury chocolate coins (for now, maybe).

Cadbury

However, all hope is not entirely lost, you can still buy different chocolate coins at supermarkets and pound stores around the country.
