Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Wafer Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Wafer
Posted: 12:31 Tue 31-Aug-2004. Price: 45p. Location: Newsagent, Borough High Street, London. Nutritional unusualness: Fat-reduced cocoa, maltodextrin, "may contain traces of peanut, nuts and egg".
"Commander Zorg" reports: It's thicker than a normal "Dairy Milk..." bar, with a more brick-like shape due to the twin wafer layers running continuously through the bar, Kit Kat-style, making individual chunks impossible. The thick top layer of Dairy Milk makes this every bit as chocolately and lovely as the genre-defining KK Chunky, but can it win the battle of the red-tops? In a blindfolded taste test I doubt you could tell the difference between the two (assuming the test pieces were of a similar size and all imprinted branding was removed to stop "tongue reading"), but it fails to innovate or grow the wafer sector by being a simple Kit Kat copy. Tasty, but I can't help but worry that its lack of originality may lead to it getting lost in the bewilderingly huge Dairy Milk line-up.

...I'm pretty much with "The Commander" on this one - you can taste the Dairy Milk chocolate, but the wafer is uninspired (and surely much of Kit Kat's appeal lies in its delicate lengthways "finger" format rather than the traditional Dairy Milk chunking observed here?). The Cadbury/ Nestle war rages on elsewhere, with Nestle threatening to launch Milkybar and Smarties filled mini creme eggs next year (in the same innovative packaging as this year's Double Cream Egg), while reader "Donna Cornelius" writes to ask: Has anyone spotted Cadbury Flake Moments? - apropos of, it appears, nothing in particular.

Comment: One of the reasons I can't see this doing well is because I imagine they would plonk it next to all the other Dairy Milk bars, hence it would just be another DM addition rather than a distinctive unique bar like Kit Kat. Milkybar mini eggs sound yummy though, but don't Nestle already make some sort of Milkybar mini eggs?

Comment: sorry, yeah, I've kind of tried to correct this - they're more "Cadbury Creme Egg"/ hen's egg sort of size, rather than the official "garden bird egg" definition of "mini" now required by new EU regulations

Comment: Donna, yes I've seen Flake Moments in Woolworths in Romsey. There was no price tag though. Also saw in there the new Cadbury thin crisps (forgot name) in Pringles stylee.

Comment: Tried CDM Wafer over weekend, all I can say is that it is one of the weakest additions yet to the CDM brand. It is nowhere near as good as Kit Kat and I doubt that it will ever muscle in on Kit Kat territory. They should have added something more appetising to the CDM range, wafer is hardly original.

Comment: I'm wondering if the Cadbury wafer is like the Bar Six they had out years ago, that was choc, wafer and choc cream stuff, delicious. This looks very much like that. Anyone remember them?

Comment: I too though CDM wafer would be like Bar six but it is nothing like it. What a disappointment. Anyone know where You can but Bar six?

Comment: WILL SOMEONE TELL CADBURY ON MY BEHALF TO BRING BACK THE BAR SIX. THIS WOULD MAKE THEM A FORTUNE IF MARKETED PROPERLY.

Comment: bar six used to be gorgeous, just can't get them any more unfortunately. CDM is the nearest thing to it but nowhere near as nice and too hard - used to like disecting bar sixes, chocolate off first, then the wafer bit then the creamy stuff - yummy!!!

Comment: Ooh this sounds better than the communion wafers that we get at church. I must suggest it to my priest next time I see him, they once forked out a fortune for special 'blessed' holy water that was nothing more than tap water, so I dont suppose it would be a problem.

Comment: I remember the Bar Six!! They were delicious! I still crave them to this day and I think the last time I had one must have been 30 years ago! Would love to get my hands on one! Are they still available somewhere?

Comment: I love you people. I myself have been craving the Bar Six. There are not many out there who remember this bar. You would require 10,000 people to sign a petition for them to bring it back on the market.

I think it would be well worth it.:0)

Comment: Bar Six! Oh my God! I love those things and I WANT ONE!!! Cadbury should really bring them back especially since retro-candy is so profitable and all the rage right now here in North America. Not sure about elsewhere in the world.

I would almost kill for a Bar Six. I know even if they were imported and cost CDN$2.50 a bar, I would still pay!

In addition, I am not sure if anyone here knows Jann Arden the Canadian singer/songwriter, but she LOVES the Bar Six and also wonders where it went.

I want to meet her and show up with one just to freak her out.

Comment: I grew up with Bar Six (I'm 40, sigh) and like many of you STILL long for one. I think it was way better than Kit Kat. I don't know why since they were similar, Bar Six pieces were I think, wider and shorter. Just sooo damn good! Jann Arden comes from my country and once my home of Alberta, never knew she liked the Bar Six. Let's all write Cadbury!!!!! LOL

Comment: bar six was by far the nicest chocolate bar in the world! i'm from the uk, and u could last buy them maybe 12 or 15 years ago! they must be available somewhere in the world...?

Comment: Geez Louise. Bar Six! Love that chocolate bar. I Googled this delicious snack and came across this delectible discussion. By far my favourite chocolate bar. I think the cream was coffee cream. Last sighted by me in Canada somewhere in the early 80's.

Comment: Mmmmm....Bar Six. That was my favorite bar when I was little. (Which , according to my daughter, was 2 centuries ago) I'm craving for one right now... Where's that petition? 40517 7

Comment: I loved bar six!! I would love it if it was brought back! Maybe I should stage a protest outside the factory, its not too far from where I live!!! Does anyone remember the dark chocolate version, Bar Noir?? They were gorgeous too!!

Comment: I haven't seen these about for a good long while, maybe cadbury has discontinued them, shame.

Comment: They haven't. They're still available in my workstation at the mo' Tesco by the way. Best Before July 2007, though. Is this worrying?

Comment: I loved Bar Six too and they left us long ago in Canada. I was told they were in the UK but by the time I tracked them down they had stopped them too, the same goes for Singapore. I emailed Cadbury and they said they no longer made them and that they had no plans to bring it back. But back then finding "bar six" on the internet wasn't as popular as it seems to be now. Maybe they will think twice. Kit Kat or any other bar, there's no comparison.

Comment: I last found a Bar Six at Woolworths in Basingstoke in 1996. It tasted wonderful then and I would love to see them brought back. If anyone from Cadbury reads this, you could make a small fortune from the baby-boomers alone on this one item. Retro is reviving and the majority vote with their wallets. PLEASE bring it back

Comment: I love Bar Six bars, and have looked on line for years for any where that might make them. I agree with Alberta Bound, Cadbury could make a fortune if they brought this bar back....Please bring it back..it is sadly missed.

Comment: I live in Bournville, have a father who worked for Cadbury's for a number of years and had countless chocolate bars brought home - some that never went into production! By far and away the nicest bar was Bar Six - just perfect the way you could split the layers. Kit-Kats just don't come close.
Posted: 22:52 Mon 11-Aug-2008 by "Barnone" # permalink comment
Comment: I loved the bar six, would love to see them brought back again. Maybe we should start an online petition and get signatures to send to Cadbury.

Comment: I've been looking for "Bar Six" for years.I remember as a kid my father would bring one home after work, as soon as i saw that orange wrapper /?#$%!&^%$^#* (at!) .
Posted: 06:21 Sun 28-Sep-2008 by "Daniel Chavarin" # permalink comment
Comment: I agree with everyone's comments about the best chocolate bar in the world. I would trade an expensive box of designer chocolates wherever they are from, and however much they cost, for a single Bar Six! Please get serious about a petition and send it to Cadbury in hope they return this bar to us all. At least we have Coffee Crisp and Kit Kat-the old stand-by.
