He wrote: ‘Coles, it is now 7 weeks in a row where I have not been able to buy Caramilk chocolate in your stores. There’s not even a spot for it on the shelf. My regular stores are Flinders Square and Innaloo.
‘When I asked staff about it I was told they are no longer stocking it. But whenever I go check in Woolworths and other supermarkets it is always there. What is going on? I am a loyal Coles shopper, but if this issue is not immediately rectified I will be jumping ship and taking my business to Woolworths.
‘I went to Woolworths Dog Swamp today and sure enough they had plenty as you can see in this photo. Very frustrating! Heads should roll for this outrage.’
But while Chris posted a pic from his local Woolworths store which was packed with scores of Caramilk blocks as proof, it seems one social media user didn’t believe it to be real.
The critic wrote: ‘You are lying. It is unavailable in the country. Cadbury aren't making any more until April because they are busy making Easter Eggs.’
While Coles shopper Chris insisted that he’d bought three blocks from Woolies and to ‘sit down and be quiet’, his critic wasn’t having any of it.
He responded: ‘It is unavailable. Go and take a photo of it on the shelf with a current magazine in front of it and i'll apologise.’
With that, Chris posted a photo of his receipt and responded: ‘I can do you one better. Here’s my receipt dated today. Sadly all the healthy vegetables were cropped out because I had to zoom. I swear I don’t eat crap only 😂’
But the critic still wasn’t having any of it and accused Chris of doctoring the photo.
‘Anyone can fake a receipt like that with photoshop. I can tell that you can't get a photo because it isn't available. Good one.’
With that, several other shoppers chimed in to point out that Caramilk is available on Woolworths’ website, while a Coles worker confirmed it was available at their store.
‘YOU’RE PART OF THE CONSPIRACY!’ commented another social media user to the Coles worker.
As the hysterical jibes continued back and worth, it lead another to make his own observation: ‘First of the worlds problems right there your life must be so boring if this is all u can complain about.... 😂😂😂🤦♀️🤦♀️’
Hmmmmm, we’re not sure about that - Caramilk shortages are serious business!
