Cadbury Officially Confirm Dairy Milk Marble Is Coming Back
After eight years of nothing, Cadbury has thrown us all a bone and given us what we've been craving.
The company has been facing some pretty severe criticism for not bringing back Dairy Milk Marble, but now it has delivered.
In a statement, Cadbury has thanked everyone for their commitment and dedication to flooding them with angry comments which read 'WHERE IS OUR MARBLE?'
Cadbury's statement read: "We have been absolutely blown away by the amount of support and love that you have for one of our classic flavours.
"Please be assured that every plea, petition and comment has been heard - and we have been working hard to bring back what you want. We can officially confirm we're bringing Cadbury Dairy Milk Marble back and it's because of each and every one of you."
Well, this is just the best news ever.
Suspicions were high yesterday that Cadbury would be making an imminent announcement when the administrator of the Bring Back Cadbury Marble Facebook group posted 'proof' that the choccy was making a comeback.
The photos included a box labeled Marble Trial 2020, a massive block of the sweet stuff and a bloke holding up a wrapped package of Marble.
The photos were captioned with: "20k FOLLOWERS... our army is POWERFUL!!! Don't F*** with Bring Back Cadbury Marble FB page. A few peeps have been demanding proof, to quell that lack of faith I deliver you these. Vive La Marble!! We did it!"
It's an interesting twist considering late last year Cadbury released a statement that it had no plans to reintroduce Marble to the market.
One serious fan of the flavour asked Cadbury on its Facebook page when we could expect a return and the company gave this reply: "Unfortunately, at this stage it will not be making a comeback. We do however appreciate your passion for Marble and we will pass on your feedback to the chocolate team."
Cadbury's parent company Mondelez International also told news.com.au back in 2017 the reason Marble had to be discontinued was because there were other exciting flavours that needed to be explored.
The company said in a statement: "Unfortunately this sometimes means that nostalgic favourites need to be discontinued to make way for the new."
But clearly more than 20,000 loud voices on social media have been enough to change the company's mind. We don't know when these will come back to our supermarket shelves, but we will make sure to tell you the moment we know.
