Have Cadbury’s bosses gone Fruit & Nuts?

First they changed the recipe of the Cadbury’s Creme Egg earlier this year. Now they are changing the recipe for the first time in 90 years, of the Cadbury Fruit & Nut bar, by adding sultanas to the recipe.

Chocolate lovers have taken to Twitter to voice their outrage that the classic recipe is being changed, with one fan even questioning “is nothing sacred?”.

A Cadbury’s spokesperson 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 chocoholics accused Cadbury of putting cost – sultanas are cheaper than raisins – ahead of taste.

Are you a fan of Fruit & Nut? Do you welcome the addition of sultanas or would you prefer the recipe unchanged?  What would Frank Muir say? Can you tell the difference between sultanas and raisins?
