Time Out is a brand of chocolate bar currently manufactured by Cadbury Ireland. It was introduced in the United Kingdom and Ireland in 1992, followed by Australia and New Zealand in 1995. Mainly sold in pairs, it consists of a ripple of milk chocolate between two wafers, smothered in Dairy Milk milk chocolate. The bar was originally sold under the slogan "the wafer break with a layer of Flake".
In Europe, Time Out is available for the Irish and UK markets and is produced by Cadbury Ireland. It was given a new look in 2010 with lighter blue packaging and was given a new slogan, "Everyone needs some Time Out". However the new lighter blue colour proved to be unpopular with customers and so a few months later its colour was reverted to the previously used dark blue shade.
When Time Out was first introduced, it was a substantial snack (about 25 grams), then suddenly it was down-sized to 20.5g. The newly released single-finger bar has now shrunk down to 16g.
The current main twin finger bar has a combined weight of 32g (40g for Australia and New Zealand) and is suitable for vegetarians.
In early 2015 Cadbury Australia discontinued the multi snack sized pack of Time Outs due to low sales.
