Cadbury’s have announced they’re working to improve your Roses experience by upgrading some of the sweets to easy-open packaging, and smoother chocolate so they melt in the mouth easier.

Two of the sweets affected will be the Hazel in Caramel, and the Coffee Escape. Yes, THE PURPLE ONE.

Don’t worry though, Cadbury says the taste won’t be changing. The improvements have been made simply to make the chocolate last longer in your mouth and to address complaints of the sweets unwrapping themselves in the tin
