    They are all different. The cremes have gone and all the others appear to be lower in quality and poorly made.

    Not really. I just found it odd with the Cadbury factory just up the river. Probably more to do with the takeover of Cadbury. They have changed a few recipes. The shitfight down here when Cascade changed the black currant formula was amusing.

    I bought snickers bar in a recent deal and people were complaining that they were made in China. The biggest concerns seemed to be health standards and also taste. Possibly the ingredients are changed slightly.

    I don't find the bars that much different tbh but I also haven't lined up one made OS with one made here and directly compared so I'm going memory.

    I've also bought Skittles made OS and I find them to be great in comparison to ones made locally.

    And they're wrapped like fun size chocolates too, not like how roses should be.

    When I was a kid, there used to be these frozen milk ice things that came in the cardboard carton like sunnyboys. Anyone remember them? They came in chocolate and strawberry

    neither did I until too late. they've changed to a hard tablet similar to an Anticol instead of the semi-soft pastilles, and the flavour is just not the same. :(
