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.

History[edit]

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]
