Chocs away!

There are certain things that without which Christmas just wouldn't be the same. Crackers that don't bang, the forgotten bread sauce, and that piece of Brussels sprout hanging onto your nan's chin for dear life. Not to mention games of Trivial Pursuit, Only Fools And Horses on the TV and neverending tins of Cadbury's Roses...mmmm! But as of this year, the latter will never be the same again..

Yes, the iconic round Cadbury's Roses tin is to be replaced in a trial run by a square box made from cardboard in a bid to make it more eco-friendly. It's predicted over 200 tons of steel a year will be saved. I suppose these are good intentions, but it'll be a shame to see the tin fade away. What, for example, will we put our leftover mince pies in?

One thing that won't be changing, sadly, is the price point. Catch the new Cadbury's Roses in Tesco stores in the run-up to Christmas and be sure to give your feedback on whether you want the tin to stay!
