Fury over Heroes advent calendar as shoppers ‘want refunds’ over December 1st chocolate

CHOCOLATE fans were dismayed to find a Cadbury's Creme Egg behind the first door of their Heroes advent calendar this year.

The "love-it-or-hate-it" chocolate was slammed by shoppers who jokingly said Christmas is "cancelled" after the disappointment.

The Heroes advent calendar has a mini Cadbury's sweet treat behind each door, with December 1 featuring a Creme Egg in chocolate bar form.

In the 24-day countdown to Christmas, consumers will get a range of different chocolates including Fudge, Eclair, Wispa, Dairy Milk, Crunchie and Double Decker.

But it got off to a bad start for some Cadbury's fans, who took to Twitter to complain about the December 1 disappointment.

Disgruntled customers said the divisive chocolate had "ruined Christmas", jokingly asked if they were "being punished" and said the offending item had gone "straight in the bin".

One Twitter user said: "Why was the first day of the Heroes advent calendar a Cream Egg. Clearly December ain't gonna be a good month."

"Nah my first chocolate in the Heroes advent calendar is a Creme Egg. I want a refund," another joked.

Another added: "Got a Heroes advent calendar. First door I open is Creme Egg, day ruined and Christmas cancelled. Fuming."

But some shoppers were thrilled to find the chocolate behind the December 1 door.

"You know it'll be a good month when the first chocolate in your heroes advent calendar is Creme Egg," a satisfied customer said.

Another Creme Egg fan added: "Thank god the fist door of my Heroes advent calendar was a good one cos if it was fudge or an Eclair I'd of cried."

The Sun has contacted Cadbury's for comment.

We tried out chocolate advent calendars to find out which one was the best value for money.

Some of the festive countdowns only included one of the brand's festive treats - the rest were just a standard milk chocolate.

If you don't fancy eating chocolate all month, there are healthy options available or boozy ones at the other end of the scale.
