A Cadbury spokesperson said:
“While raisins have actually traditionally been the fruit of Cadbury Fruit & Nut, sultanas have been brought into the fold to add more variation. It’s important we have a flexible supply of the dried fruit we use in our famous Fruit & Nut bars to both retain quality and ensure it’s still an affordable treat.”
The company said bars would contain either raisins or sultanas, but not both. It said that during trials 200 adults were unable to tell the difference between sultanas and raisins in the prototype bars.
But what do you guys think? Are you outraged that Cadbury would change the recipe of their longest established bars? Let us know what you think @ChocMission and we will RT your thoughts to Cadbury themselves :)
