    Terrible news. Sell-Out Britain it should be called.

    I met one of the members of the Cadbury family in Afghan. He was in charge of a troop I was attached to over Christmas. On Christmas morning he pulled out a box of cigars of varying types apparently worth a few grand. He wasn't too happy with me as I chose the most expensive one in the box

    I was getting excited reading that... thought it would go something along the lines of him pulling out a 100% pure smokable chocolate cigar.

    I can't see them making massive changes to the brand TBH. Probably just make things more efficient and lend Cadbury's the Kraft marketing budget ;-)

    yep saw that they needed to borrow that much, if they aint got themoney, then why get involved??

    Also, apparently, in the UK, a chocolate bar must contain 20% cocoa to make it a chocolate, however in the US of A, it only needs to be 10%!!!

    So i therefore retract my earlier comment about the full fat choccies...unless they actually do fill it with FAT!!!

    Yeah but that's just the way business works, borrowing money. It's quite common as far as i know for that to happen. Just a shame that the americans did it I wonder if we'll get jerky flavoured chocolate now?

    Well, I just had a Cadbury's Freddo for old times sake, get them whilst they are still British, then boycott when they become Kraftbury's.
