THE sad news that Nestle will discontinue the beloved Caramac bar after 60 years has rocked the nation.
The chocolatier confirmed it made the “difficult decision” to discontinue that caramel-flavoured bar due to low sales.
A standard 30g Caramac bar would have set you back about 75p in most stores, but they will soon disappear forever.
Fans were devastated upon hearing the news with many wondering where they would go for that Caramac distinctive caramel buttery flavour.
So we scoured the supermarket shop shelves to find the closest available dupe for the best price – here are the results
- 75p, 30g – Sainsbury's
- Price per 100g: 83p

There is nothing quite like the authentic taste of Caramac bar.
Made from condensed milk, butter, various flavourings and sugar and at 30g per bar they’re meant to be consumed solo.
The popular bar is often described as having a unique butterscotch-like flavour.
However, some fans have speculated that the recipe has changed over the years and I would agree. The bar I tasted was very grainy and bland.
