Cadbury recently decided to launch a UK version of the popular classic Caramilk bars for first time ever.
Some are happy that the caramel white chocolate bars are now on the shelves. Others aren’t so thrilled.
Richard Osman, TV presenter, posted about the chocolate bars this week.
Addressing his 1million Twitter followers on Friday (September 17), the star wrote: “Has anyone tried Caramilk? What’s the verdict?”
It seemed his simple question sparked chaos as the comedian had more than 1,000 responses.
And many couldn’t help but compare it to Nestlé’s Caramac bar. This caramel-flavoured chocolate has been around for over 50 years and is a popular choice.
One Twitter user told Richard: “It’s like Caramac but incredibly, almost sickly sweet.”
While another added: “Tastes of nothing but sugar. The caramel undercurrent is so suppressed as to be barely detectable. Not a patch on the venerable Caramac.”
While a third added: “Caramac cannot be replicated :(.”
In fact there were so many comparisons to Caramac, that it even began trending on Twitter.
Richard exclaimed: “Wow, ‘Caramac’ is now trending. That was quick.”
Despite many claiming Caramac is better than Caramilk, the Cadbury chocolate did have some fans.
One wrote: “I had a bar of this the other day and it was like sophisticated grown-up Caramac. Very nice.”
While another added: “I like it, to me it tastes like fudge but with the bite of chocolate.”
A third chimed in: “Great. Another candy bar crave!”

Cadbury announced its ‘retro’ golden Caramilk bars were hitting UK stores back in June.
The iconic chocolate bar has been imported to the UK only by specialized retailers.
The chocolate maker released three sizes of the popular Australian chocolate classic in Britain.
This tasty treat is made using a golden mix of caramelised white chocolate that has been made from 100% sustainable cocoa.
