A Cadbury Snack is a shortcake biscuit squares or two biscuits with chocolate filling, covered with milk chocolate. The Snack Shortcake, available for over 50 years, is popular in Ireland.


Three versions of Cadbury Snack are available in the United Kingdom and Ireland: Snack Shortcake (chocolate-coated shortbread in a yellow wrapper),[1] Snack Wafer (chocolate-covered wafer fingers in a pink wrapper)[2][not in citation given] and Snack Sandwich, an individual chocolate-and-biscuit bar[3] similar to the original Jacob's Club biscuit. In February 2015, Cadbury announced that it was ceasing production of the Snack Wafer due to declining sales.[4]

In Australia, the Cadbury Dairy Milk Snack block is a six-piece bar of milk chocolate filled with six different flavours (strawberry, pineapple, orange, coconut ice, Turkish delight and caramel) and available in 135-gram (4.8 oz) and 200-gram (7.1 oz) sizes.[5] It began production in 1974; before then, the chocolate was created by MacRobertson's. In June 2009, Cadbury reduced the size of the bars.[6]
