It may be 5 months away to Christmas the time of year you normally let loose and indulge your sweet tooth, and if you happen to buy Cadbury’s Roses during the holiday period you may be set to loose out again this year as the country’s biggest chocolate brand have confirmed already that they plan on shrinking their tins yet again.
The chocolate giant say they are going to take more than 50g from away from the bumper tin later this year. Cadbury’s which is now owned by US giant Mondelez confirmed the news recently to the Grocer trade magazine saying that the nations traditional Christmas Treat will be reduced from a 780g to a 730g tin/tub.
The reduction in size of tins has significantly grown over the past number of years as the tins weighed a whole 200g heavier at 975g. The US giant also say that they plan on cutting the size of the Miniature heroes box from 780g to 695g. The news is bound to anger consumers as the price of the sweets will remain the same as previous years but weigh significantly less in comparison.
A company spokesperson told the magazine: “We are under pressure to ensure tubs are great value,” “We are convinced the changes we have made to the mix of chocolates ensures they remain so.”
