Time Out bars are now gone in Ireland... and this is their replacement

RIP Time Out.

THE CLASSIC TIME Out bar was a staple of many a school lunch around Ireland back in the day – but times are changing.

A spokesperson for Cadbury Ireland has confirmed to that the classic Time Out has now been fully replaced by a brand new bar.

And it’s called the Time Out Wafer

The main differences between this new bar and the classic Time Out is the size and the chocolate/flake makeup of the interior.

Of course, the classic Time Out had a rich vein of chocolate running through its core, between the flakes


Which sometimes provided a rather lovely aesthetic

This pleased me greatly. The middle of my time-out was perfect! #chocolate #Cadbury #timeout #symmetry

The new one would appear to have a different chocolate to flake ratio and pattern, as well as being much smaller in size.

Some people miss the old Time Out already

A discussion on Reddit Ireland this week brought up the new Time Out, and a commenter identified the best thing about the classic version:

The whole point of them, is the thick chocolatey flake in the middle. Without that, it’s nothing special. I tried one of these wafer ones my brother got and was horrified! I hope they keep the original one alongside it.

Sadly, that’s not the case – the old Time Out is no more.

On Twitter, Cadbury explained the reasoning behind the change:

Research shows Cadbury Time Out wasn’t as popular as other bars so instead of discontinuing it, we’ve gave it a helping hand with a few changes!

So now. Welcome the new Time Out Wafer

And say goodbye to the old Time Out.

We’ve had some good times :(
