I would normally pick Galaxy over Dairy Milk, but sometimes a bar of DM is a nice change.

Bournville though... heaven in a red wrapper.

Philistines! Cadbury every time for me. Galaxy/Mars is just slimy!
I forgot Bournville Laura, but I' don't do plain. I also didn't include Nestle or Milka. I do like the purple cows too.......

Dairy milk for me! Especially given the plus point that they know what "suitable for vegetarians" means Very Happy

Well, if you really want to know... the problem is usually whey...

When you add certain enzymes to milk, it separates into curds and whey (as in little miss muffet). Curds are made into cheese - whey is a by-product. Quite often, the whey is dried and added to all kinds of things as a cheap filler (chocolate, biscuits, icecream etc).

The issue is the source of the enzymes... Sometimes, it's sourced from the stomach linings of unweaned slaughtered calves - and sometimes it has more vegetarian friendly origins. For a product containing whey to be genuinely suitable for vegetarians, the source of these enzymes needs to be appropriate (the same obviously applies to cheese - which is why some cheese has a V on it and some doesn't). 

Cadburys understand this - products containing whey from unsuitable sources are actually marked as "not suitable for vegetarians" (eg, dairy milk with oreo). Other companies are not so understanding - they either don't know or don't care where their whey comes from.

There was a huge fuss about this a few years ago - mars switched from veggie to non-veggie whey (link) and then backtracked when they realised that people actually care about this stuff.

I'll shut up now Very Happy

Of course if you'd added Milka & Daim into the equation the answer would have been entirely different.................. Razz

Coke, only ever Coke. And it tastes better from the glass bottles!
But not diet or Zero, it has to be full fat or I'd rather have water cyclops

You see I don't like the taste of full fat coke, much prefer diet coke. Or cherry diet coke ideally! Love that!
