Are Chocolate Oranges Getting Smaller?

They are a family favourite – a staple of the British sweet counter and the Christmas stocking.

They say the famous chocolate segments have been reduced in size by Cadbury, which is now owned by the US giant Mondelez International.

Aficionados of the orange flavoured confectionary have set up a Facebook page bemoaning its reduced weight.

The group, called  Mondelez are shrinking our Terry's Chocolate Oranges, states: “Mondelez International have decided to shrink the 1932 chocolate orange, a subtle trick that they hoped nobody would notice. Well, we noticed and we’re sick of them ruining British chocolate.”

One Terry’s Chocolate Orange fan, Michael Hood, said: “The segments have one side hollowed out, that’s different I think, so I look at the box and see it weights 157g”

Nikita Broughton, said: “Great another chocolate I can't buy anymore! Hopefully they'll stop doing it when nobody buys it!”

Mondelez took over production of Terry’s Chocolate Orange in 2012, moving its production to processing plants in Poland.

It has been previously accused of cutting the number of Crème Eggs and Curly Wurlys in its multipacks without reducing their price to customers.

Mondelez blamed the need to reduce the contents of its multipacks on the rising costs of ingredient
