Ruth said: “Visiting Cadbury World really brought back some fond memories of my time working at the Bournville factory, especially the smell of chocolate and the history of the factory! Celebrating my 100th birthday at Cadbury World was very special to me – thank you to Cadbury World for making it an extra special day to remember for me and my family.”
The fun doesn’t stop there! Cadbury World is hosting its Easter Eggstravaganza from Friday 14th April to Monday 17th April. Children will be able to enjoy an ‘egg-citing’ Easter Egg Trail through Cadbury World, as well as having the chance to win Cadbury World prizes in a creative Easter bonnet competition, and meet the famous Cadbury characters.
Inspired by the study, Cadbury World’s creation features a vintage record player complete with volume controls, a turntable arm and stylus, speakers and a spinning vinyl, alongside an smart phone and life-size headphones as a nod to modern-day music technology. It also features hand decorated colourful retro vinyls, finished with intricate grooves and purple and gold edible lustre.
Made entirely from Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate, the creation weighs in at an impressive 7kg and took two talented chocolatiers 1.5 days to make.
Visitors will also be able to demonstrate their love for their mums by writing a message on Cadbury World’s thank you wall. And, if that wasn’t enough, Cadbury World will be handing out a free 69g box of Roses to all visiting mums on Mothering Sunday.
Other highlights throughout the year included raising £3,500 for Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, and creating giant chocolate Easter eggs which were auctioned off by Acorns Children’s Hospice, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Help for Heroes. Through raffles and cake sales, employees also raised funds for St Mary’s Hospice.
Standing at an impressive 85cm tall, each egg has been created on site by the talented chocolatiers, before being hand-decorated with an intricate and unique design for each charity. Taking just one day to make, the eggs weigh a combined total of 40kg of chocolate – the equivalent to 444 standard sized Cadbury Daily Milk bars.
