    I agree that it's likely an attempt to get a sales jump on competitors who didn't think of putting this spin on their labelling or who still use animal fats or emulsifiers in their chocolates.
    A cynical ploy, but there's not much about advertising and marketing that isn't cynical.
    I don't have a problem with it so long as getting it certified hallal doesn't incur a cost that's passed along to the consumer.

    I prefer dark chocolate and just enjoyed some 55% Ch, chilli infused stuff from Germany. Not as good as the Belgian tallow goodies a friend sent recently, but I'll eat unbranded cooking chocolate when there's nothing else going, so I can't be too uppity.

    I wouldn’t worry about it, it’s a scam anyway. Having worked in the meat industry, I’ve seen processing plants with a recording of an Imam reciting something in Arabic over the speakers, not sure if it’s a halal requirement or them just appeasing customers for the sales…I suppose it’s a bit like the vegetarian labeling on foods.
    "God said it. I believe it. That settles it"...its really a masterpiece of concision. Acres of impenetrable theological bullshit have been whittled down to a simple definition of what faith actually is.

    However cynical it might sound I have to agree that it is just a way to increase the appeal of a vendors product, as cheap and artificial as having some recorded message playing over a product processing plant might be to a skeptic to a shareholder it's a prayer answered, mmm pun intended.

    OK now if I am not mistaken Cadbury does not contain any animal products other than cow's milk. That automatically makes it Halal classified.

    It would have to be cow's milk anyway since it is extremely common. And of course there are cows on the front cover and of course I presume that is what "dairy milk" means right?

    or it could even be Malk™


    I wonder is vitamin R halal?

    Eureka!

    I was recommended to try the 'Coles Milk Chocolate', made from Belgian chocolate.

    Excellent. It was very smooth and very nice. Just as good as Cadbury, if not better.

    A 200g block cost me $2.99au. The Cadbury milk chocolate 200g block was selling for $3.99au. That makes a $1 difference, for the same quality chocolate.

    You could take that info, and interpret that as saying $2.99 for the chocolate and wrapper, and $1 for Muslim prayers!!

    Cadbury, you can keep your prayers and chocolate!!!!

    I'll stick to the 'Coles Belgian Milk Chocolate' from now on. And at the same time save myself $1 on prayers I didn't ask for!

    Thanks heaps Coles. You ROCK!!

    I'm with Seamus. I'm rather less exercised (in fact I'm not exercised at all) about the idea of eating chocolate that is permissable for this or that religious group, so long as otherwise it is the same chocolate, than I am by shrinking pack sizes.

    On the lindt front my preference is 70%. I tried to like chilli chocolate: I like chilli, and like Jamiroquai chilli chocolate is hip and happening, but like Jamiroquai it just doesn't do it for me.

    Haigs FTW!

    The price of Swedish chocolates upsets me. I love Swedish chocolate.
    I once had some Swedish chocolate and at the time I thought it was the best I had ever eaten. Over the years I thought perhaps my imagination was playing tricks on me ... but perhaps not?

    I love my high end priced quality chockies as well.

    Lindt - Really Nice!

    Haigs - Yummy!

    Chocolate Mill (Near Daylesford) - AWESOME!!!
    A little drive from melbourne, but VERY well worth it. Every now and then we make the trip out there for the day. They now do online ordering http://www.chocmill.com.au/index1.html as well. Warning: Not cheap. And very Addictive!! Also no preservatives used, so they must be eaten within I think 14 days of purchase. They are also hand made and fresh every day. On weekends they have special chockies that must be eated that very day or they will go off (these are my favourite). Yummy!!

    I may add that Cadbury recently changed their packaging, at the same time downsizing their blocks by approx 50 grams.

    The above query was about my particular choc-of-choice, Lindt.
    I have noticed EXACTLY the same thing. Although note that the package looks bigger and/or the same size as the original in many cases. And the same price too. And now this HALAL crap just because Muslims express public outrage that they can't eat chocolate or whatever.

    Oh yeah let's see if we can find HALAL beer soon. If you don't want to eat something that is not HALAL then don't eat it. But don't force the people to make it HALAL for fuck's sake!

    A cheap choc that ain't too bad can be got from Aldi.
