Mum furious after finding three milk chocolate eggs in her Caramilk bag and she wasn’t the only one

Easter outrage! Mum disappointed to discover three regular milk chocolate eggs hidden inside her Caramilk packet – and she’s not the only one

  • An Australian mum has shared her frustration after a disappointing bag of eggs
  • The woman bought a bag or Caramilk eggs, but three were milk chocolate
  • Other disappointed chocolate lovers said they had the same problem this year

An Australian mum has been left reeling after discovering three of her Caramilk Easter eggs were actually milk-chocolate eggs.

The mum posted a photo of her egg haul on Facebook complaining she had been ‘scammed by Cadbury’.

The picture showed all 11 of her eggs with the foil slightly peeled back, three of the eggs stood out because they were much darker than the others.

‘There were three dairy milk eggs in my Caramilk bag,’ she complained.

The eggs all have the same foil making it impossible to tell the difference between them when  they were wrapped.

A Cadbury spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia the two eggs are processed on the same line and they have identified instances where the same foil has been used for both eggs. 

They have encouraged customers to reach out so they can ‘help make it right’. 

Others had the same problem, and were not happy.

‘My bag of Caramilk eggs is the same. Not sure how many are milk chocolate as I haven’t finished them yet,’ one Caramilk lover said.

‘My daughter opened it and was like ‘look mum’ and I thought I was losing my mind,’ another mum said.

‘Same here with all four of our bags,’ one man said. 

While others said they also found rogue eggs in their Caramilk bags and thought they were going crazy.

Cadbury’s response: 

A Cadbury spokesperson spoke to Daily Mail Australia about the issue:

Each Easter, we work hard to produce more than 450 million eggs and 15 million bunnies for chocolate lovers in Australia and New Zealand.

CADBURY Caramilk is no stranger to cult-level status and last year we gave fans a taste of Caramilk at Easter time, with the launch of our Caramilk-flavoured Mini Egg bags.

Our Caramilk and Cadbury Dairy Milk Mini Eggs are produced on the same lines at our Ringwood factory, and we have identified a few instances of the same foil being accidentally used for both. Consumers who have identified Cadbury Dairy Milk in a Caramilk bag are encouraged to reach out to our consumer care helpline, so that we can make it right.

 

Caramilk lovers were outraged by the mix up, one woman revealed her daughter is on the autistic spectrum and wouldn’t have dealt with the issue very well. 

‘That would cause a meltdown here, the horror,’ another woman said.

‘I have never been so rattled by a picture,’ another admitted. 

The mum continued in the comments to say the mix-up was devastating.

‘My two-year-old ate them and then spat them out. Don’t think they tasted as good as the other Cadbury she got,’ the woman said.

This Easter, Cadbury has expanded their Caramilk range to include bunnies.

Some people were concerned the mess-up could ruin the woman’s Easter.

But she said she had an extra bag of her favourite chocolate eggs so still had a great weekend.

Others commented saying they had bags of the eggs too, but they had all been fine.

Daily Mail Australia has approached Cadbury for comment.
