Cadbury Has Replaced Fudge With Dairy Milk Oreo In Selection Boxes
Remember a little while ago we reported how Celebrations were going to include Milky Way Crispy Rolls and everyone was losing their shit as a result?
Well, while Mars seem to have played their cards right on that one, Cadbury seem to have made a bit of a faux pas with their Selection Box by getting rid of the Fudge bar. Yeah, we know.
Now, we have nothing against the replacement snack - in fact, we positively love Dairy Milk Oreos and could happily spend Christmas eating nothing but them - but WHY GET RID OF THE FUDGE BAR?!

Not only is it a classic chocolate bar that brings back memories of walking home after a long day at school, but they're really, really tasty.
And we're not the only ones to think so, either, if you look at the responses that have been cropping up on Twitter since the news broke.
@CadburyUK can I just say I'm shocked and also upset by the fudge being replaced by a dairy milk oreo in my selection box :pensive:

It just doesn't make sense.
That said, there were a few people who seemed thrilled at the news. Not many, mind, but a few. Well, there was this guy:
The fudge was the worst bar in the box,

And this fella:
Can't believe @CadburyUK has taken the fudge bar out of its Xmas selection box. My wife is distraught, she normally loves a finger at Christmas.

Oh, hang on a minute. He wasn't talking about chocolate, was he?
