Cadbury has ruined Christmas. Well, kind of.
Let me set the scene:
It's December 1 and excited little boys and girls around the UK are tearing into their fresh Cadbury advent calendars on the countdown to Christmas. (It's the only time of year it's acceptable to eat chocolate first thing in the morning, am I right?) But, they didn't find a tasty chocolate morsel, instead they found ... nothing.
Turns out there's a glass and a half in NO ONE, eh Cadbury?
Parents have taken to the blue bird to voice their frustration over this unfortunate turn of events, with a generous sprinkling of tears, broken hearts and angry faces.
Joanne wasn't thrilled with the quality of this chocolate either:
@CadburyUK what on earth is this supposed to be?? We could barely work out yesterday was an angel but today!!? My 4 yr old is quite upset. #AdventCalendar #advent #complaint #cadbury pic.twitter.com/nhABVsrUPk— Joanne Sammons (@joalicesammons) December 2, 2019
The tweets lead to a string of apologies from the Cadbury UK Twitter account. Given the poor staff member was simultaneously dealing with the meltdown of another secret santa campaign it's fair to say they weren't having the best day.
Sorry to hear that Alex, please contact the customer care team here: https://t.co/YQrbSZla8w or call them on: 0800 818181 & they'll be able to help 😊— Cadbury UK (@CadburyUK) December 2, 2019
