Amid the changes, social media users have vented about a chocolate company attempting to take a stance on healthy living.

‘Why does everything delicious in life have to be healthy why cant we sin every now and then and enjoy a fatty chocolate bar,’ one person said. 

‘New and improved then? That’s the advertising term for ‘now crap’. So we have to suffer now because fat people can’t control how much of the stuff they shove down their throats,’ said another.  

‘NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Honestly, who eats chocolate to be healthy?!’

‘Message to Cadbury’s … If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’ 

‘Nobody: … Cadbury: Time to ruin our product.’  

Others were glad to see Cadbury was doing something to encourage healthy eating.
