Whittakers vs Cadbury

I wanted to include this advert in yesterday’s Pick N Mix but couldn’t find it online anywhere. It has shown up on NZ TV recently after big changes made by one of our major chocolate manufacturers. Cadbury has moved production to Australia, reduced the size of their blocks of chocolate, reduced the amount of cocoa solids in the chocolate and added palm oil to their recipe (which not only negatively affects the taste of the chocolate but also contributes to deforestation in Indonesia).

Whittakers’ is taking a well deserved dig at them here. I think without even trying Whittakers’ has just taken a large chunk of Cadbury’s consumer base, Cadbury basically handed it to them on a platter.

If you would like to protest against Cadbury’s use of palm oil you can join the Facebook group or sign the petition.
