Get a Rope

Easter ruined? Creme Egg recipe redo has chocolate lovers hopping mad: Kraft Foods-- which now owns chocolate maker Cadbury -- has stunned consumers by no longer using Cadbury’s Dairy Milk in the recipe for its Creme Eggs. And, there's more: the company also is reducing a package from six eggs to five, without reducing the price. U.S. giant Kraft Foods bought Cadbury in 2010 and its global snacks business under the name of Mondelez International.  

Hat tip to Art Scott.

A major US corporation ruining a time-honored recipe and raising the price? I am shocked, I tell you, shocked.

I knew as soon as Kraft (creator of that unnaturally yellow mac & cheese) took over Cadbury that the delicious chocolate of my English childhood was gone forever.

Deb, I well remember the day when they started selling Cadbury cookies (or biscuits, if you will) here.

Yum!

This is an outrage.
