Many of us will likely have felt the heartbreak of our favourite chocolate or sweet treat being discontinued due to poor sales.

And plenty of Cadbury fans have faced some 'sad' news recently after finding out the 'best chocolate bar they ever made' has been axed after first being introduced back in 2017.

The revelation came to light after one chocolate lover took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to ask Cadbury if the company still produced a certain type of treat. However, they were quickly let down, with many other fans feeling the same.

The Express reports that the person asked if Cadbury still made the Peanut Caramel Crisp bar, which consisted of gooey caramel with plenty of crunchy nuts and puffed crispies.

A spokesperson for the company replied: “Peanut Caramel Crisp Bars have been discounted. However, we still have lots of other chocolatey treats to try.”

However, one saddened follower tweeted: “Cadbury’s Peanut Caramel Crisp is the best chocolate bar they have created in years.”

Another wrote: “That sucks, it’s the best chocolate bar they ever made.”

A third said: “I’m so gutted, hopefully they will bring out something similar, it was so tasty.”

The Peanut Caramel Crisp bar was first created back in 2017 and was quick to become a favourite treat for many Cadbury fans.

At the time of the launch, Cadbury’s Katrina Davidson said: “The UK is going nuts for nuts.

“We have once again made sure our fans can enjoy their favourite chocolate with a new taste and texture experience they will love.

“The Big Taste range is all about generous layers and textures. Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp is the perfect example of why they’re so great to share.”

It comes as more chocolate fans were left devastated earlier this month when Nestle announced it would be discontinuing the Caramac bar after 60 years.

Because of its unique sweet taste, the Caramac was a firm favourite amongst many chocolate lovers.

A statement from Nestle read: "Unfortunately we had to withdraw Caramac from our range as sales were relatively low. It was a difficult decision for us because we're proud of all our products and don't like to disappoint our consumers.

"We are very sorry to disappoint fans of Caramac. There has been a steady decline in its sales over the past few years and we had to make the difficult decision to discontinue it.”

One X, formerly Twitter, user responded to the news, saying: “Just heard the devastating news that #Caramac bars are to be discontinued… My mum loves them…

"Quite partial myself. Will have to get down to the local shop and stock up!
