Cadbury Chocolate

cadbury chocolateCadbury is a traditional chocolate brand from England. The famous company from Old Albion was established in 1824 by a man called John Cadbury in Birmingham.

First he was just doing business with tea and coffee, but later he decided to extend his range of goods with chocolate. This was the beginning of a fantastic and sweet success story. Today Cadbury is known around the world as the typical chocolate creation from England.

Well, I was happy to find my first Cadbury chocolate in a supermarket called “IKI” in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius during my last holiday. Of course I did not think twice, and grasped the opportunity. I have never seen a Cadbury chocolate before, but I knew about the existance.

It seemed my Cadbury chocolate was manufactured in Russia, and not in England. There are a lot of Cyrillic letters on the wrapping. Someone who is able to understand the Russian language confirmed that this Cadbury chocolate was made in a Russian city I have never heard of: Novgorod. Novgorod has 220.000 inhabitants, and can be found in the North Eastern corner of Russia, very close to St. Petersburg.

When I have opened the wrapping I could smell a lovely aroma. In my first bite I have experienced a meagre taste. The chocolate was not really sweet, but also not bitter. It was even difficult to locate the milk in the milk chocolate. Very strange.

The hazelnuts are cut in very small pieces. I am not sure what to think about this chocolate. Also the content of cocoa stays a secret. I don’t know why, because there is no cheap taste, which is typical for chocolate brands who enjoy hiding their cocoa content.

Cadbury chocolate is not bad, but also not really an enjoyment. Milka chocolate for instance is more sweet and has more flavour. Maybe Cadbury chocolate has just the character English people like. Gentle, quiet and not too obtrusive in the taste.


  1. I would not like to embarrass you, but there is a grammatically inaccurate verb in the above text. „Cut” is an irregular verb: its past and past participle form are the same as the infinitive. [cut, cut, cut]

  3. I definitely agree with you regarding the gentle (as you put it nicely) taste, I’d call it weak but there we go. For me there just isn’t much flavour in the Cadbury’s bars, and they rely a little on what they put into the bars (in this case hazelnuts) for the main flavour, whereas European bars will make their actual bars quite milky, or give them a deeper chocolate taste.

    Personally this bar doesn’t do it for me, but it’s very popular here so people obviously enjoy it.

  4. I hate to disagree with you guys about this. But i think the Russian version and English versions of Cadburies chocolate differ greatly. The milk content in the UK version is actually quite high. The commercials even say its a glass and a half in every bar. Also Cadburies has a very distinct taste to it, almost like a Rum flavour. Im not completely sure of the cocoa level in it, but i do know its a lot higher than American chocolate.
