Cadbury was founded almost 200 years ago and has since stolen the hearts of chocolate lovers everywhere. The company makes three of the United Kingdom’s top 10 best-selling chocolate bars, and the first one is Cadbury Dairy Milk. According to Bloomberg, in 2012, Cadbury Dairy Milk was the fifth most popular chocolate bar in the world, with sales amounting to $2.5 billion. Cadbury Twirl milk chocolate bar is also a U.K. favorite, as is Wispa. The company’s products also include Double Decker, which is made with nougat-whip and Rice Krispies; Crunchie, which is chocolate and a honeycomb filling; and Fudge, which is, fudge and milk chocolate combined in bar form.
Hershey’s has owned the rights to making and distributing Cadbury chocolate in the U.S. since 1988, and in 2010, U.S.-based food company Kraft took over U.K.-based Cadbury, causing a significant amount of controversy.
