Cadbury has come under fire from shoppers after making changes to a popular children’s snack sold in the UK.

The chocolate giant has been accused of “misleading little children” after reducing the weight and size of its Animals biscuit snack packs.

The cookies became a favorite choice for parents over the years, as they were typically available to purchase in a multi-pack of seven (a small bag for each day of the week) before being reduced to a six-pack. .

Shoppers have expressed outrage at the news that there are now even fewer biscuits in each packet of sweets.

Cadbury has renamed the multi-pack to only include five individual packs; Despite this, they sell for the same price as a pack of seven at £1.25 in major UK supermarkets.

Previously, the product weighed 139.3g, but has now been reduced by 29 per cent to just 99.5g, meaning buyers are getting less for their money.

Parents are furious about the change as they could previously give children one each day of the week, but will have to double up on multiple packs if they want to allocate one pack per day.

Many shoppers have complained about the change after discovering they would pay the same price for less food, a term commonly described as “counterinflation.”

One shopper on Morrisons’ website said they were “cheating” children, adding: “Fewer animals in the pack for the same price.” Why not raise the price a little and keep the same content?

One upset parent wrote on X: ‘Why do they make us pay for a 7-pack of Cadbury Animals but only give us a 5-pack?’

METEROndelez International, owner of Cadbury, said the change was due to the rising cost of key ingredients.

A spokesperson told Sun: “As food producers, we continue to experience significantly higher input costs across our supply chain, with ingredients such as cocoa and sugar costing much more than before.”

They added: ‘This means that our products remain much more expensive to manufacture and, although we have absorbed these costs where possible, we still face considerable challenges.

“As a result, we have made the decision to decrease the number of packages at Cadbury Animals so we can continue to provide the great taste and quality our fans have come to expect.”

Although the original Cadbury Animals multipacks have been reduced to five bags, the Cadbury Freddo seven-pack multipack, which features the same product in the shape of the cartoon frog, is available to purchase from major UK retailers for £ 1.25.

It comes after Cadbury admitted in January tor changing the recipe for one of their most loved chocolate bars in the UK, leaving fans of the original furious.

The TimeOut bar, which is made up of layers of crispy wafer with a smooth milk chocolate filling, first hit shelves in 1992 and is a favorite of many.

However, after years of claiming the candy tasted different, fans’ worst fears were confirmed.
