I NEED my 30g, GIVE IT BACK! (This post is not about drugs)


CadburyDear Cadbury,



Hi, I am sure you recognise my name –  And no, the restraining order DIDN’T say I couldn’t blog about this, they just didn’t want me calling your offices 54 times a day anymore.  And that thing about stalking, I guess.  But  I digress.


Now listen, all I am trying to do is kindly point out that there are some genuine flaws in the new packaging for for family block chocolate.  Since you won’t take my calls, and I doubt you read the note I wrapped around the brick I “delivered” to your office yesterday, I thought I would point a few things out here.

Oh yes, here come the dot points.

  • Firstly, there is the undeniable fact that I NEED that extra 30g.  I know you probably don’t understand, I mean, you are surrounded by chocolate right?  Get it at any time of day or night?  Yeah, well for those of us out here in the  real world chocolate is like heroin.  And if I don’t get my fix I get ANGRY. 
  • Speaking of drugs.  The new cardboard packaging is nice, but seriously, are you trying to encourage drug trade?  That cardboard is excellent camouflage for drug deals… “Here, I got you your chocolate, that’ll be $”.  I mean really, you didn’t think of that?  Shame on you.
  • Also, the cardboard is also a FAR greater fire hazard than the paper.  I checked, it’s definitely more flammable.  Also, people are going to want to set fire to something when they find out they are missing that 30g.
  • New packaging.  Easier to put it away and save it for later.  People are going to eat less chocolate.  Smart marketing plan?  I think not.  Just sayin’.

And before you ask, no, I don’t care about the money – does it cost less?  I didn’t notice – nor do I care.  I’ll pay.  I just don’t want to be shortchanged on my chocolate.

I have purchased the remaining family blocks from my local store, and have around half a carton.  I really think the only way to amend this is to change the packaging back as soon as possible and publicly apologise for disappointing us all.

Oh, and send me free chocolate.
