Blog: Dean BestCadbury's Heroes shake-up is a Christmas cracker

Dean Best | 19 December 2008

Fighting over the chocolates in a selection box is as central to the festive period in the UK as, well, the Queen's Christmas message .... and falling asleep in front of the TV after stuffing yourself with turkey on Christmas Day.

Now, it seems the debate over the big tins of chocolate under the tree will intensify this Christmas after Cadbury was reported to have changed the chocolates it puts in its tubs of Heroes.

According to The Times, gone are the white chocolate Dream and the Crunchie – to be replaced by Fudge, Bournville and toffee Eclairs.

Cadbury, said The Times, admitted that cost was “definitely a factor” but said it was consumer taste that had driven the decision to chuck out the Crunchie.

Now, there has been some grumbling about this decision but I welcome it.

So what if there'll be a lot of Bournvilles left at the bottom of the tin come 30 December?

More for me!
