CADBURY has axed a popular Easter egg and shoppers are bound to be gutted.

Mondelez, which owns Cadbury, has confirmed to The Sun that the Oreo Chocolate Easter Egg will not be returning this Easter.

The chocolate giant said that the move is to reflect “changing taste buds”.

The tasty Easter treat has been available since around 2017 and came with a chocolate shell egg, as well as two mini Oreo filled eggs or chocolate bars.

Last year, fans could get a 217g egg for £3 at Asda and a 278g egg at Tesco.

And while the product is still listed on some supermarket websites it is now permanently unavailable.

Fans of the American cookie will be gutted to learn they won’t be able to get the milk choc egg this year.

But, luckily Mondelez has confirmed that the equally-popular white chocolate egg will be making a come back for a third year and it’s even bigger than before.

A spokesperson said: “We’re always listening to our Cadbury fans to ensure our Easter range includes their favourites and reflects their changing tastebuds.

“We’ve made a few changes to reflect this and think our 2023 line-up is egg-cellent, even if we do say so ourselves!

“Egg-citingly, our White Oreo Egg is back and bigger than ever this year.”

The white chocolate shell (499g) contains crunchy Oreo biscuit pieces and comes with an added sharing bag.

You can grab it on the Ocado website for £12.

The news comes after The Sun revealed last week that Cadbury has scrapped Dairy Milk Egg ‘n’ Spoon cartons.

Fans across social media called the move a “crime”.

One TikTok user said: “Omg I am fuming, they are my favourite.”

Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Egg ‘n’ Spoon product was made up of a purple egg box which contained four chocolate eggs wrapped in foil and set alongside two purple spoons.

Inside the hard chocolate shells, fans could scoop out a delicious chocolate mousse.

The Egg ‘n’ Spoon cartons were first launched in the UK in 2013 and various iterations hit the shelves over the last decade.

There was also an Oreo variation which was brought in in 2013.

Cadbury fans have already been hit hard this year, the company has shrunk the size of its easter eggs – without slashing prices.

It’s one of the latest examples of shrinkflation – where products get smaller but the price stays the same.

An example of this is its medium Wispa easter egg now weighing 182.5g, down from 224g, and still costs £3.

Meanwhile, Tesco has launched a big promotion across a range of eggs and treats.

Plus, shoppers have been rushing to buy ‘dreamy’ white chocolate egg.
