Details[edit]

Cadbury Snack Wafer split

Three version of Snack are still marketed in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The first is branded Snack Shortcake (yellow) chocolate-coated shortbread.[1] The second is called Snack Wafer (pink) – Originally three now two chocolate-coated wafer fingers.[2] The third version is named Snack Sandwich – an individual chocolate and biscuit bar,[3] not dissimilar to the original Jacob's Club biscuit.

In February 2015, the company announced that it was ceasing production of the pink (wafer) Snack, sales of which had been in decline for a number of years.[4]

Australia version[edit]

Cadbury Snack Australia version is a block of Cadbury chocolate with six different flavours. Strawberry, pineapple, orange, coconut ice, Turkish delight and caramel.[5]

The Australian version of Cadbury Snack began production in 1974. Prior to this point the chocolate was created by MacRobertson's. The bar has six chunks, each filled with a different flavour: strawberry, pineapple, orange, coconut ice, Turkish delight and caramel, which has remained same since Cadbury began production.

In June 2009 Cadbury reduced the size of the blocks.[6][7] Although Snack is now branded as part of Cadbury's Dairy Milk range, the chocolate is sweeter than that used in the standard Dairy Milk bar.
