Cadbury fans who are still mourning a discontinued favourite rejoice as Costco shoppers find an alternative

There are few things more frustrating than one of your favourite sweet treats being pulled from the shelves. 

And some Cadbury fans have been left in the cold for years after their favourite snack was discontinued across the UK. 

Cadbury Snaps were pulled from the shelves more than a decade ago, back in 2010 – but chocolate lovers still miss them.

Now, fans are coming together to share the alternatives they’ve found in an attempt to replace the much-loved luxuries.

Back in June, one X user called Shannon tweeted ‘@CadburyUK please bring these back? Thanks’.

However, the confectionery giant simply replied ‘Hey Shannon, Cadbury Snaps have been discontinued, however we still have lots of other chocolatey treats to try’.

Another who was reminiscing added ‘All I’ve been thinking about for the past 4 days is Cadbury’s snaps, how unreal were they’. 

One user sparked a conversation by writing ‘Does anyone remember those Cadbury snaps which were basically chocolate Pringles?! I miss those’.

Others replied ‘Yep! They were nice…’ and ‘They are f****** amazing’.

Meanwhile, someone else chimed in with ‘I find myself often thinking about the Cadbury crispy snaps. They were beautiful.’ 

However, one fan came to the rescue by tweeting a picture of Belgian Chocolate Thins, saying: ‘If you remember Cadbury’s snaps you’ll know how gassed I am right now.’ 

The ‘crispy and delicious’ thins can be found in Costco in a sea salt and caramel flavour – and chocolate lovers can get their hands on a pack of four 125g packets for £8.49.

Someone replied with ‘Lidl does them too and they have different flavours’.

Meanwhile, another recommended a ‘lush’ salted caramel version from Home Bargains, while a fellow fan added: ‘Aldi sell these but Aldi version, tasty too’.

The Aldi version are called ‘Choceur Milk Chocolate Waves’ and cost £1.79 per packet, so all hope is not lost.

Despite Cadbury Snaps’ short life span of six years, launching in 2004 and disappearing forever by 2010, they had a lasting impact on Brits across the UK.

They came in a variety of flavours including hazelnut, chocolate and mint.

It’s not the only treat that fans are missing – more recently, Cadbury scrapped their Dairy Milk 30 per cent less sugar chocolate bar earlier this month, only four years after its launch.

Eagle-eyed consumers spotted the chocolate’s disappearance from shops shelves, leaving some peoples’ evenings ‘ruined’.

One fan of the bar posted online: ‘I’m devastated they’ve pulled this option from shelves, it just seems like another decision to cut costs at the expense of quality or diverse choices.

‘That’s my evening routine ruined!’

The brand also ditched their individual Dairy Milk Treatsize Buttons back in July, leaving some UK customers gutted.
