Cadbury Double Decker
is a chocolate
bar from Cadbury UK
. First introduced in 1976 its name derives from the double-decker bus
The chocolate bar is lightly flavoured with coffee and structured in two layers; an upper whipped nougat
layer, with a lower layer of cereal ‘crispies’, these are then coated in milk chocolate
The bar has a mass of approximately 60 g, and typically contains 11.3 g of fat, 41 g of carbohydrates, 2.6 g of protein and 1155 kJ (275 kcal) of energy. The Double Decker no longer contains hydrogenated oil
There also existed a 'Double Decker - Nuts' launched in 2004, which had the advertising slogan "crispy, crunchy, chewy and nutty". This chocolate bar was essentially a Double Decker with nuts contained within the nougat layer; however it has since been discontinued. At the time it was distinctly aimed at males, and featured in Coronation Street credits during 2004.
In 2009 the bar received a packaging revamp, for the first time since 2004. Also a Cadbury Double Decker Duo product was launched, two smaller Double Decker bars in one pack.
