  • Today’s confectionery bosses insisted there were no safety risks to customers
  • It comes after some people complained that their chocolate tasted “like creamer”.

Bosses at Cadbury have recalled Milk Tray chocolates amid claims they taste like bleach.

Chocolate, a Christmas Day staple for millions of Brits, has been recalled due to a “food quality problem”.

Cadbury owners say affected foods include 180g and 360g cans brought in before 2 November.

It is feared that with the passage of time the flavor of the chocolate may have been tainted by the carton box. However, the confectionery company stressed that there are no safety risks.

Cadbury owners have recalled 180g and 360g cartons of milk that were purchased before November 2 after complaints of the chocolate tasting ‘like bleach’.

However, that didn’t stop some festive chocolatiers from getting a nasty shock, with one person in Brighton saying: ‘We had one gifted and the chocolate tasted like chemicals. It tastes really awful, like bleach.

“Most people won’t open the trays until Christmas, which means the majority of people won’t even notice for at least a week.”

A slew of one-star reviews have also appeared on Trustpilot about the taste of the milk carton this month.

One reviewer said, “Just opened a 360g milk tray, it has one chocolate in it, and the taste is like the smell of the disinfectant they use to clean the pig farm.”

Another wrote: “Cadburys milk tray tastes like paint thinner, and leaves an awful chemical/metallic after taste.”

While one angry chocolatier said: “The worst thing is the chocolate they use. It doesn’t taste like Cadbury milk chocolate at all. Not only does it taste like Cadbury, it actually tastes really unpleasant and has a metallic taste. If I could classify it as Zero stars instead of one, I’ll do it.”

First made in 1915, Milk Tray remains one of the most popular chocolate brands in the UK and sells in the millions as Christmas approaches.

They were made famous by Milk Tray Man ads in the 70’s and 80’s when a James Bond-style character leaves a box for an unseen lover.

The slogan “And it’s all because the lady loves the milk tray” became famous. Mondelez, which owns Cadbury, has pulled two different versions of the chocolate box, while the others have remained safe and available.

A Mondelez spokesperson said: “We have taken the decision to recall Milk Tray 180g and 360g products from UK retailers with immediate effect.

A Mondelez spokesperson said: “We have taken the decision to recall Milk Tray 180g and 360g products from UK retailers with immediate effect.

This is due to an issue with the quality of the food, as we found out that in some cases the cardboard packaging did not work as well as it should.

While there are no food safety concerns involved, we believe that recalling the product is the right thing to do.

We are committed to producing and selling only the best quality products and unfortunately on this occasion we have not lived up to our high standards.

Please be assured that other milk tray formats (specifically the 78g and 530g products) are not affected by this packaging issue, nor are any other Mondelez products.
