Cadbury's fans go nuts over chocolate bar recipe change

CADBURY'S is changing the recipe of the Fruit and Nut bar after 90 years - with sultanas to be added for the first time.

The planned change for the iconic chocolate bar, which was launched in 1926, is designed to add "variety" to the bar, according to Cadbury's.

A spokesperson for the confectioner said: "While raisins have actually traditionally been the 'fruit' of Cadbury Fruit and Nut, sultanas have been brought into the fold to add more variation.

"It's important we have a flexible supply of the dried fruit we use in our famous Fruit and Nut bars to both retain quality and ensure it's still an affordable treat."

But some people on Twitter were unhappy about the news the recipe was going to change:

The new version bars will be in shops in the UK by the end of the month, although the packaging will remain the same.

The only way to establish whether an individual bar includes sultanas or has been made using the traditional recipe will be through checking the ingredients.

Cadbury's ran taste tests of new recipe bar and found 200 people were unable to tell the difference between sultanas and raisins.

It comes after the firm's decision to change the recipe for its Creme Eggs sparked a furious reaction from many.
