UK hit by Cadbury 99 Flake shortage



https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-57149071

The UK is facing a shortage of Cadbury 99 Flakes after a surge in demand for soft-serve ice creams topped with the crumbly, chocolate treat.

The ice cream toppers are half the size of the Flakes sold at newsagents and petrol station counters.

"We are seeing a recent increase in demand for our Cadbury 99 Flake in the UK and Ireland that we had not expected," Cadbury owner Mondelez said.

Mondelez did not say how long it expected the shortage to last. However in a statement, the company said: "The product is still available to order and we're continuing to work closely with our customers."

The majority of the 99 Flakes sold in the UK are made in a factory in Egypt, with some also arriving from a facility in Coolock in Ireland.
Disappointing but not the disaster it might once have been when Cadbury's was wholly British .....

Cadbury's has been fully owned by Mondelez International (originally Kraft Foods) since 2010 so it'll be the fault of his crony, Cameron .....

Selling Cadbury to some foreign concern was like giving away the crown jewels Omah.....

But we have seen the best of it, in its descendancy.

OMG Omah how could you post this photograph! I can almost smell & taste the ice cream, cone and yummy chocolate. I will now be fantasising about something I cannot have. Delicious memories of hot summer days gone by. But all we have is rain & sleet.

This is a good opportunity to ask whether anyone can recommend soft scoop vanilla ice cream that tastes like the biz. It used to be walls all the way.
