Have you seen the new ad? Some people are outraged and worried that children will be able to see it and wonder what is going on!

Jaxjacky Mon 11-Jan-21 16:04:26

Not see it?

Doesn’t matter what gender I don’t want to see images like that.

With you Urmstongran, pdas are not particularly pretty whatever gender.

Haven’t seen it, but am pleased the eggs are back🤗

Mapleleaf Mon 11-Jan-21 16:34:12

Not seen it and a bit confused as I don't know what it shows?

GagaJo Mon 11-Jan-21 16:38:03

I've seen it. And? It's two blokes being silly with a chocolate egg.

Why the fuss?

GagaJo Mon 11-Jan-21 16:38:55

I used to love creme eggs but now they have horrible American chocolate, I don't like them. Guess it's a good thing. The fondant with the liquid glucose is SO bad for me.

DiscoDancer1975 Mon 11-Jan-21 16:40:44

Isn’t it dairy milk chocolate anymore Gagajo ?

grandMattie Mon 11-Jan-21 16:43:27

Just watched it. Ugh. But then I think that Creme eggs are revolting too!
DGS's stepfather was a lorry driver and one year was driving over 100,000 eggs around the countryside...

GagaJo Mon 11-Jan-21 16:43:58

No. They quietly replaced it a few years ago with chocolate that tastes like Hersheys (which is vile, tastes of oil).

BlueBelle Mon 11-Jan-21 16:45:35

Yuk I hate them sickly nasty chocolaty things not for me at all

AGAA4 Mon 11-Jan-21 16:47:39

Silly advert.

Grandmabatty Mon 11-Jan-21 17:01:58

I don't watch adverts but it being two men doesn't bother me. Sharing any chocolate on the other hand...

Ngaio1 Mon 11-Jan-21 17:04:20

Have not seen the ad. Cannot stand the sickly things.

Hetty58 Mon 11-Jan-21 17:09:56

Ridiculous to worry that children 'will wonder what's going on'. Why would they?

It may make some people (maybe ex public school?) feel uncomfortable - but that's their own problem.

Creme eggs, though? No thanks, too sweet and sickly, even for a confirmed chocaholic like me!

Maggiemaybe Mon 11-Jan-21 17:21:11

Oo, I really fancy a creme egg or six now. The chocolate’s not what it was but oh, that sickly filling. smile

I can’t see a problem with the advert.

DiscoDancer1975 Mon 11-Jan-21 17:22:58

Can’t say I’ve noticed the difference in the chocolate, the size of the thing, well that’s different 😡

GagaJo Mon 11-Jan-21 17:32:12

Are they smaller? I haven't had one since just after the chocolate changed.

BlueBelle Mon 11-Jan-21 17:35:04

Oh never watched the advert was I suppose to ? where is it?on mainstream tv haven’t noticed it but then I d probably blank out at them it’s not Easter for months and they aren’t on my radar yuk

cornishpatsy Mon 11-Jan-21 17:36:10

I have read a lot of fuss about it yet we were ok with the woman in the bath eating a flake suggestively.

DiscoDancer1975 Mon 11-Jan-21 17:41:43

Oh yes, definitely smaller😢. Have been for a few years.

Smileless2012 Mon 11-Jan-21 17:42:00

Thanks for the link GagaJo. Can't see what there is to complain aboutconfused.

Lucretzia Mon 11-Jan-21 17:42:36

The only thing wrong with that advert is the thought of sharing.

One must never share a Cadbury Creme Egg
