Cadbury World

This week one of Clinton's professors took his students to Cadbury World.
Reece, Amber and I got to go along for the fun.

just a little history about Cadbury....

Cadbury, the global leader in the chocolate confectionery market, began in 1824 when a young Quaker named John Cadbury opened up a shop in Birmingham. John sold coffee, tea, drinking chocolate and cocoa at his shop. Believing that alcohol was a main cause of poverty, John hoped his products might serve as an alternative.

Chocolate was EVERYWHERE

we got to take a little ride through Cadbury land.
kind of reminded me of the ride at Disney Land "Its a small world"

Beanville, cocoa beans sun bathing!!

some interesting facts about Cadbury
  • Cadbury was the first company to include pictures instead of printed text on chocolate boxes.
  • George Cadbury didn’t want to take mothers away from their children, so he developed a company rule that women had to leave work when they got married. Each married woman was given a bible and a carnation as wedding gifts.

  • Clinton learning about the history of the cocoa bean

    we had lots of fun and learned a lot about the history of the cocoa bean and Cadbury chocolate. Cadbury chocolate is HUGE in the UK and it truly is the worlds BEST chocolate. By the time we left i was so sick of the smell and didn't want to taste chocolate for a while.... or the next day!!
