“What's happened to Roses?!”

Written on: 12/05/2016 by MarkPI (1 review written)

Ok - they were never a byword for high quality chocolates, granted. But they did have the lovely cadbury chocolate coating, and a decent mix of flavours to suit most tastes. All this appears to have been dumped in their latest incarnation in a curious decision to make every single chocolate taste roughly the same - overly sweet, sticky and all round foul. They remind me strongly of the incredibly nasty chocolates you can buy in the US - Hersheys etc. I guess sugar is cheaper than any other… Read Full Review

“Nasty sickly chocolates”

Written on: 11/05/2016 by SterlingSheridan398 (1 review written)

What has happened to Roses? Used to be my favourite now I find they taste quite nasty, was too sweet and sickly and has a nasty aftertaste. The melt is all wrong, the wrappers and selection are rubbish. Ate 3 (spat one of them out) and threw the rest away… Read Full Review

“I would award zero stars if the system let me”

Written on: 29/03/2016 by Forbesvg489 (1 review written)

I used to love Roses, but we were given some at Christmas and they now taste too sweet and quite unpleasant. Even my favourite, the Hazelnut Whirl, is no longer enjoyable. Is the chocolate recipe different? I was given some this weekend and gave them another go, but no, they are ruined. The wrapping of the sweets in now boring, but the main problem is that they no longer taste nice. What's the point of eating something that's not good for you if it doesn't taste nice? No point!… Read Full Review

“Cadbury's Roses are no longer a treat”

Written on: 11/03/2016 by DahliaSheridan (1 review written)

I was looking forward to enjoying my box of Roses chocolate's as they have always been one of my favourites. As soon as I took the first bite I could taste the difference and it certainly wasn't pleasant. The chocolate tasted strange and had a horrible greasy texture to it which put me off eating any more. The fillings are not pleasant either and all taste pretty much the same .... horrible. I seriously think that the new owners of Cadbury have made a big mistake in meddling with our… Read Full Review

“Ghastly - all gooey and no real variety”

Written on: 02/02/2016 by 363Fournier (1 review written)

Cadbury used to be a great quality brand - since Kraft took over it has become cheap in terms of quality and actually nasty in terms of taste and texture. Would never buy Roses again as these are nothing like the original - virtually all the same tiny oblong shaped sweets with minimum chocolate coating that stuck to the teeth. Horrible!!!… Read Full Review

“Bring back cadbury's chocolate”

Written on: 27/01/2016 by captaindoug19 (1 review written)

I have been avoiding cadbury's chocolate since the new owner closed the English Factory and changed the recipe and started using inferior ingredients. We were given a box of Roses for Christmas and it is still half full. Normally they would be gone by the end of Boxing day. I agree with most other reviews. If it's not broken don't fix it. Give us our chocolate back and re-open the English Factory. The chocolate and fillings are not of an acceptable standard at any price… Read Full Review

“Worst Xmas Chocs Ever”

Written on: 11/01/2016 by Georgiah462 (1 review written)

So few chocolates in the tub compared to what I remember as a child. I couldn't believe that when I opened the plastic cheap and nasty tub that I couldn't even get a dairy milk chocolate. It had dark chocolate (bin), and a coffee based chocolate (bin) but no normal basic English Dairy Milk Chocolate. Quality Street are streets ahead, but if I'm honest, the best chocolates I tasted this year were Sainsbury's own… Read Full Review

“Couldn't give them away”

Written on: 08/01/2016 by AngeliqueWilson206 (1 review written)

They have gone in the bin. There is no nice real creamy cadbury taste like there used to be which used to mean it was hard to refrain from eating them all at once. Now I couldn't get anyone to eat more than two because there is nothing nice about them to make you want another. It's just has an awful cheap taste to them. In a blind taste test I might not be able to tell it was chocolate. I hardly ever write reviews but I'm actually angered at how bad it is. I feel like it's bad using the… Read Full Review

“Awful! Not what they used to be at all!”

Written on: 08/01/2016 by Rebeccae223 (1 review written)

Nothing good to say and left with an overall feeling of sadness at what Cadbury has done to these chocolates. The Roses name may be on the tub but these look and taste nothing like they used to. The cheap plastic tub is much smaller than it used to be and not the luxury experience I remember. The chocolates are wrapped in individual plastic wrappers to take up more room in the box. The chocolates all taste pretty much the same. Sweet, sickly, bland and a waste of calories. There seems to be… Read Full Review

Eversdel's Response to Thecrowebar's Review

Written on: 04/01/2016

totally agree. Most chocolates in a Roses selection are awful. They taste nothing like they did back in the 1980's. The chocolate taste is bland and tastes nothing like a plain bar of Cadbury chocolate.
Its a totally different chocolate, cheap and tasteless in my opinion. Since Cadbury was taken over its changed totally. Why do these people assume the public are still happy with the same products? Where do they get their information from?? Its all very simple really. Cadbury chocolate has changed for the worse and bars have got smaller and taste nothing like they used to. The Flake is just hanging on and tastes similar to how it always did.
The so called "Tin" of Roses is truly disgraceful with less sweets every year and awful taste from the chocolate. And its going to continue and get worse. Its all down to cost saving and total greed. Shame on the owners of Cadbury. If only the Cadbury family had held on to the company and fought their corner. But huge sums of money is tempting. A great pity.

“Absolutely Awful !!!”

Written on: 28/12/2015 by McElroy252 (1 review written)

I haven't bought Cadbury's Roses for a while so when I got a box & had a couple I was so shocked I didn't want to eat any more. They are NOTHING like the Roses we used to have before Cadbury's sold out to the Americans. They've been turned into awful candy, just like their bars which are filled with sickly fillings barely coated in milk chocolate. They are SO BAD I'll never eat them again! At least Quality Street made by Nestle are much as they always were. Thank you Nestle! … Read Full Review
