With Easter coming up on 12th April let’s get ready with some fun facts about Cadbury to celebrate the best chocolate in the world.
Cadbury was founded in 1824 when John Cadbury opened a grocer’s shop. Along with tea and coffee he sold cocoa and drinking chocolate as healthy alternatives to alcohol which Quakers like him deemed bad for society. Healthy or not, we can’t argue that chocolate certainly makes people happy!
Cadbury first added milk to a chocolate bar in 1897…and the Dairy Milk bar was born!
After over 120 years since its launch, the Dairy Milk bar is still the UK’s favourite chocolate bar. Elegant, unpretentious and addictively moreish, it’s just chocolate in its perfect form.
Cadbury once owned the trademark to the colour purple…the particular shade of purple used in their packaging! Competitors Nestlé took them to court over it and after two decades of litigation Cadbury finally lost the rights to the shade in 2013.
Cadbury Creme Eggs are manufactured as two half-egg shells, each of which is filled with a white and yellow fondant to simulate the egg white and yolk and joined together to form the classic egg shape that we’re all familiar with.
Cadbury’s Bournville factory produces 47 million shell eggs each year….that’s over half of the Easter Egg shells that Brits eat at Easter!
