Cadbury is combining its popular Caramilk and Twirl chocolates into a new bar format, but it will only be around for a limited time.

The swirls and curls of Twirl will join the caramelised white chocolate of Caramilk, to deliver a new treat in a chocolate bar form.

Cadbury director of marketing Paul Chatfield said the Cadbury Caramilk block had generated much excitement and was looking forward to delivering a new way for Cadbury fans to enjoy the chocolate.

“We gave our chocolate makers the challenge of coming up with a new way to enjoy Caramilk chocolate, and what better way than to pair it with a coating of Australia’s favourite chocolate,” said Chatfield.

“Combining the best of both Cadbury chocolates, we hope Australians enjoy Twirl Caramilk as much as we have enjoyed creating it.”

Twirl Caramilk will be available in January for a limited time in two bar sizes, medium (39g) for RRP $1.99 and large (58g) for RRP $3.20.
