    Default Goodbye Chocolate Log😭

    Feels like we are being treated like naughty kids.
    First no booze and siggies and now Swambos favorite chocolate and a few others are waving us goodbye.

    I can think of other lines to discontinue before the Chocolate Log like the Crunch and Milo bars.

    Buy a big box full, wait till off the market then sell to wives at inflated prices. The extra income can be used to upgrade vehicle.

    Check out the marketing twaddle:
    Head of public relations, media engagement, and content digital - Nestle East and Southern Africa Region, Zweli Mnisi said as Nestle, their purpose is to delight their consumers through tastier and healthier products. We know that one of the main drivers of the chocolate category is innovation and that consumers love new products. Taking this into consideration, we do discontinue certain products and introduce new ones to the market," said Mnisi.
    Bringing more sad news to fellow South Africans is that more Nestle sweet treats will be discontinued this year.
    Consumer Communication and Marketing Excellence Director, Nestl East, and Southern Africa, Zumi Njongwe said that they are excited about the new product to be hitting the shelves very soon.

    Njongwe said while it is true that Nestle Chocolate Log, Nestle Bar One peanut, Nestle Milkybar Peanut, and Milky Bar Double will not be returning to shelves from August 2020, they are making way for new, tastier and exciting products for us to enjoy and fall in love with "because we deserve it".



    The discontinued products include:
    Nestle Milky Bar Peanut 10x80g; 24x80g
    Nestle Bar One Peanut 40x50g and Mini Bag 32x210g

    Nestle Milo 8 10x80g
    Nestle Milky Bar 8 10x80g
    Nestle Milky Bar Double 24x80g

    Nestle Milo 24x80g
    Nestle Chocolate Log 40x46g


    The discontinued sizes-only include:
    Nestle Crisp Peppermint 24x150g
    Kit Kat 2F White 36x20g
    Nestle Kit Kat Mini Bag White 32x200g
    Nestle Crunch Milk 24x80g
    Nestle Milky Bar Smarties 8 10x80g
    Nestle Milky Bar Krackle 8 10x80g
    Nestle Quality Street Gift Box 12x200g and bag 8x500g


    Earlier this year, Lay's South Africa also announced that it had discontinued its Salt & Vinegar flavour crisps. The company said that it had discontinued the flavour and would no longer be available in the market, and suggested people try their new Lays Sweet and Smoky American BBQ Flavour.
    We are still mourning the Simba discontinuing their deliciously thick O'Grady's chips.
    In 2017, Cadburys Tempo Bar was replaced with its less-favourable cousin Cadbury 5 Star. At the launch of Cadbury's 5 Star bar, a spokesperson for Mondelez said that the new bar was designed and launched "while keeping in mind the ever-changing consumer palate". Still, it wasn't a worthy replacement and many are still calling for Mondelez to bring back the chocolate.

    The discontinuation of the log was in the media about a month back.... Even then I could not find any for a "vir ou laas" chocolate log experience. Ended up buying sweetie pies instead...

    Gents, to avoid the choc hunt. Just inform wives that chocolates will make them fat, hence now their figures will be safe.

    hunter26, your balls are bigger than mine.
    A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water logged stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if youre rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give her your heart and she'll give you hers. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?

    You can still get the Anytime peanuts from Beacon here and there and then Woolies has peanut chuckles and Clicks also has an in house brand chocolate peanuts.

    Have not seen Peanut tumbles in a while....

    Same here on the chocolate Tumbles, I love me some chocolate covered peanuts and I struggle to find any. Have now resorted to getting Chuckles from Woolies.
