Cadbury's responds to claims that Dairy Milk chocolate tastes different to Freddo bars after online debate
| Last updated
Cadbury has responded after it was claimed that there was a specific reason why your normal Dairy Milk chocolate tastes different to a Freddo. You can see what started the debate here:
Recently, a bit of controversy was sparked after TikTok page Omm - Fun Facts posted a clip in which she claimed that Freddos tasted nicer because they were made in Ireland to the ‘original’ Cadbury recipe.
She said that unlike the Irish-made Freddos, Dairy Milk chocolate was made in Birmingham to an amended recipe - hence the difference in taste.
In the clip, she said: "Recently have you eaten a Cadbury’s Dairy Milk and then had a Freddo and wondered why the Freddo tastes better than the Dairy Milk?
"Well Freddos are actually made in Ireland, making them nicer, smoother and milkier compared to the Dairy Milk made in Birmingham.
"This is because they still make it the original way, whereas Birmingham changed it when they were taken over.
"Let me know if you taste the difference."
In the comments several people agreed that they could taste the difference between the two, with one saying: “I actually do taste it, it tastes more like chocolate.” I’ll be honest, I’m not 100 percent sure what that means, given that both bars are, indeed, chocolate - but others seemed to agree.
Another wrote: “Yes! I buy Freddos instead of other Cadbury for this exact reason.”
Someone else said: “I've been saying this for years, I feel vindicated.”
However not everyone else was convinced that there was a change between the two bars.
“They only changed the chocolate recipe on Creme Eggs,” someone else commented. “Other Cadbury chocolate is still made as it always has been. You are very incorrect.”
And now Cadbury has confirmed to the Sun that the recipe remains the same, regardless of which site it's made - meaning there should be no reason for them to taste any different.
A spokesperson said: "We’re really sorry to bust any myths but the recipe of Cadbury Dairy Milk actually hasn’t changed - whether it’s made in Bournville or Ireland- and has remained a closely guarded secret for nearly 200 years.
"Sometimes the local milk we source can make our beloved Cadbury products taste a little creamier but that’s the only difference."
Now that that’s sorted can someone kick off a campaign that knocks Freddos down to their original price of 10p per piece?
