Sorry Cadbury - I now see that Options is an Ovaltine product!

Original review posted by user Oct 02, 2013

Having bought and enjoyed a 220G jar of this hot drink I went back to the supermarket for a replacement and bought a same size, new jar but this time offering 50% extra free - well at least physically so it turned out!

Having almost finished the old jar, I thought I would decant the remains into the new jar - but wondered if there would be space - I opened the new jar and found it to by 80% full ( I think Cadburys would say due to "settling").

I then checked the weights - old jar 200g new jar ( 50% free!) 198g.

I re read the 50% offer banner - in smaller lettering and to the side ( supermarkets proudly show all product full on so not immediately visible on the shelf) it sais 198g instead of 135g.

I am sure this is factually correct but this type of manipulative marketing is totally abhorrent to me.

It is of note that both jars have the same sell by - 11.2014 and consecutive batch numbers.

I have sent in a formal complaint - just wondering what weasel words will come back in response.

Found a rat bone in cadburys chocolate

London, England 2 comments

I was eating some cadbury's peanuts on the 25Th of October 2012 and I came across something hard to chew spat it out and it was some kind of bone covered in chocolate. After looking on the internet I found a picture of the exact bone (it was a rat bone) i contacted cadburys and was told to send the bone in the post but i a worried they will get rid of the bone or try to say they did not receive it if I do that so what do I do? and am I entitled to compensation?
