Angry British Cadbury's Chocolate in the US

I just got an email from World Market that confirms they are no longer allowed to import it for US distribution. That sucks major donkey balls! This is all Kraft's fault I just know it. I emailed World Market as I was pissed that they were not selling the proper Cadbury's online or in their stores.

I wonder if this is going to be the same in all stores? Actually, thinking about it our Meijer doesn't stock Cadbury in the foreign foods section. I can get Bountys or aeros, so Mars/Nestlé stuff. If you have a Costco card and happen to go to Canada, you can buy boxes of Crunchies from there, and chunky kitkats.

I used to buy Lindt milk chocolate in our local drug store, it was made in Switzerland. Then I noticed you could buy it everywhere, including Walmart. I bought it once.. tasted completely different. Small print, it is made in Canada or US. So I won't be buying it again.

Received an assortment of Lindt chocolates purchased in Europe from a colleague. Hated it and just threw it all away. And, no, I'm not a fan of Hershey.

Very. I am currently venting on my FB & Twitter and my brother has offered to send me some Dairy Milk tomorrow. The fact that his wife is about to give birth any day and he is thinking of his sisters happiness just goes to show how awesome a sister I must be!

I just bought a couple of Dairy Milk's from a small international grocer over the weekend. I wonder if they will continue to carry them.

I may just have to savor this last bar for a long time.

Well bollox to it - as a matter of principle, and also taste (!) I am boycotting anything Hershey's...

They made a passable fruit & nut bar - 1/4 the price of the real deal... but I'll cut off my nose to spite my face, as it were, and boycott them. I'm sure it will make a huge dent in their earnings

One is seriously unimpressed with this news. Might have to go to Fresh and Easy later and stock up whilst the chocs are still there

I doubt very much if Kraft have anything to do about this. Hershey have an exclusive distribution deal for Cadbury branded chocolate products in the US - there's nothing Kraft would want more than to wrestle it back and handle their own production and distribution. In fact, unless I have my sources wrong, the Hershey contract is due to expire next year (1988 + 25 years) - so, this could just be a bunch of sour grapes by the Hershey corporation.

Regardless who has instigated this they have pissed me right off! Another reason to not like Hershey's!

From what I was told by a manager at Cost Plus, this is indeed a consequence of the Kraft takeover, giving Hersey a US-based target to go after to enforce their contract with Cadbury. I doubt Cadbury cared about these imports, but Kraft is US domiciled and rather more vulnerable to legal action by Hersey.

Good news if this contract expires next year; one can only hope that it doesn't get renewed. I've read before that Cadbury management in retrospect considered the Hersey deal a mistake, but of course Kraft might feel differently.

I wondered why all the Cadbury's had disappeared from World Mkt! I hope there are no creme eggs this Easter, because I get addicted to them, and hate myself for eating so many! (sorry)!
