Indian consumers now demand unique formats and eat experiences and given our global leadership in chocolate, we are well positioned to identify and bring some of our world leading brands to India. What’s special about Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk Oreo is its unique product format with smooth, creamy, Silk on the outside and crunchy Oreo cookie & vanilla cream on the inside, which melt in your mouth to give you an indulgent yet crunchy Silk experience. The next few years will be exciting for us especially with India's chocolate market poised to be one of the fastest in the world. We see this as a huge opportunity to expand our chocolate footprint within the country”
The launch of Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk Oreo will be supported by a 360-degree communication campaign, designed to demonstrate the soft, smooth and crunchy Silk experience, which will include a new TVC, innovative Outdoor & Digital campaigns and strong in-store visibility.

Priced at Rs. 75 and Rs. 170, Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk Oreo is all set to give chocolate lovers a Silk experience full of crunch & indulgence!
