Cadbury has discontinued production of its famous chocolate coins, in an announcement dubbed #ChocCoinGate by crestfallen tweeters.
The confectionary giant today admitted via Twitter that the Christmas favourite is no longer in production:

… with some even getting mildly outraged:
Can’t believe #ChocCoinGate. How dare Cadbury’s discontinue their chocolate coins. What will I use as counterfeit money now!?

It’s a sad, sad day for us all.
