Cadbury has replaced the Fudge bar with Dairy Milk Oreo in its Christmas selection boxes
The most divisive bar of them all.

THE TRADITIONAL CADBURY selection box has seen some big changes down the years – as the retro selection box on offer this year put into stark contrast.

But 2017′s offering has seen a subtle change that’s been picked up on by a few diehard fans: the Fudge bar is gone.

And it’s been replaced by the Dairy Milk Oreo:

It’s a safe assumption to say that, out of all the bars in the current selection box stable, the Fudge is objectively the most divisive (and often left until last). So it’s perhaps not a massive surprise that it’s been dropped.

But for Fudge fans, it was a festive blow

And the bar that’s replaced it doesn’t live up to the same standard for them

A small number of Fudge enthusiasts have reached out to Cadbury

Has the Dairy Milk Oreo put in the hard yards and earned its spot at the top table?

Cadbury Ireland confirmed to that the switch has been made:

Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo and Wispa were both added to the Cadbury selection box this year.  The products and variants featured in Cadbury selection boxes change regularly based on consumer demand.  Fudge fans can still enjoy their favourite bar in the small and medium sized selection boxes.

Dairy Milk is the bar to make way for Wispa in the smaller selection boxes, but they sit side by side in the big one – so the Fudge seems to be the one that’s really lost out here.

But, for the sake of balance, it’s only right to include the views of some people who are probably celebrating in the streets that the Fudge has finally been slayed:

So, we need to ask: was replacing the Fudge with the Dairy Milk Oreo a good idea?
