Newsflash - Cadbury Snaps Snapped!

We interrupt this blog to announce to chocolate and cupcake lovers every where that Cadbury Snaps are no longer available in Australia!

Regular readers of Kitchen Alchemy will be familiar with our Double Dutch Chocolate cupcake, the crowning glory of which has been a Cadbury Snap. But no more! After an extensive search of the retail outlets in South Centennial and Pagewood, we can confirm that Snaps are no longer available on supermarket shelves. Rather than wonder in silence we decided to go straight to the source and find out who is to blame!

A quick call to Christine at the Cadbury consumer information line confirmed what we at Kitchen Alchemy had long suspected: Snaps are a limited product only available at certain times of the year. In fact, Snaps are imported from the UK, where they come in additional exciting flavours like organge, hazelnut and honeycomb, as well as the flavours seen here: mint, caramel and of course the original.

So, we are very sorry to announce that our Snap topped Double Dutch Chocolate cupcake will cease to be in about 36 cupcakes time. Sadly, we will be switching to the inferior Nestle chocolate button as decoration until such time as a suitable replacement can be found.

RIP Snaps!

HI, not sure if you are interested or not, but I came across a different brand of chocolate snaps in my local IGA supermarket the other day. They are a brand called Hamlet Chocolas and they come in milk, mint and caramel.
