A SERIOUS mum blew up Cadbury after her frustrated daughter discovered the £9.99 chocolates on a calendar were smaller than her toe.
Anna Devlin bought eight-year-old Kitty a box of 3D snacks late last month.
The schoolgirl patiently waited until December 1 for “some nice chocolate” – but instead found the calendar with only small pieces.
Jokingly recalling the classic ’80s finger in the Fudge TV commercial, Anna, 46, said the dish was measured as “just the size of a toe”.
She then snaps a fun photo of Kitty’s feet next to the sweet treat.
The art teacher, from Winchester in Hampshire, said the children had a “several year” when she urged Cadbury team leaders to organize their game.
“I think she thought the chocolates would be full-sized because the calendar was so big,” Anna said.
“She laughs at Fudge’s size, which is what really started it all.
‘WE HAVE Laughter’
“The painting is a dig in Cadbury. It’s not Fudge’s finger – it’s just Fudge’s toe, and there’s an eight-year-old’s toe.
“Presentation is a big part of my daughter’s Christmas celebration and it looks huge.
“Kids in general are a bit greedy and that’s what she wants. She thinks she’s going to get some nice chocolate every day and that’s terrible.
“They looked so chic in stores and they cost a penny. I should have bought two or three pots of Celebration and she could have devoured chocolate for that price.
“Advertisement used to be ‘one finger of Fudge is enough to enjoy the food for your child”. When I saw it, I said, “How can we measure it?” and then say “Your toes!”. “
They should avoid frustrated kids – they’ve had a few years
After posting her complaint online, Anna claims that several others commented on their own frustrations and has now called on Cadbury to be ‘more honest’.
Anna said: “Next year, Cadbury needs to be more honest. That’s a lot of air that I bought.
“They should avoid letting the kids down – they’ve had a few years with Covid.”
Cadbury says it regularly reviews chocolate combinations in its adventure calendar to make sure customers get “their favorite chocolates”.
However, they acknowledge there may be “some slight deviations in the mixture due to the manufacturing process”.
A Cadbury spokesman said: “Every year we are delighted to share Christmas products with our Cadbury chocolate fans.
“We review the food combinations in our itineraries regularly to ensure that we’re providing consumers with an assortment of dishes they love. However, there can be some mistakes. slight deviation in the combination due to the manufacturing process.
“When it comes to the shape of our adventure calendar, we love coming up with new and unique ways for our fans to interact and find their food, making sure it’s all inclusive. a fair and appropriate amount of chocolate for all to enjoy.”
