as a taxpayer, can't help thinking that me and a large marjority of other taxpayers would have been more than happy to use our taxes to keep cadburys as a brit company than bail out royal bank of scotland


thinks that make me go mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :???:

Dividends and bonuses may be behind that decision methinks.

Shame when the future of a company with a tradition such as Cadburys depends on pleasing the shareholders.

The bars are going to get even smaller, and they will be 95% sugar, 4% chocolate and 1% factory waste product, inevitably :lol:

If they start tasting like most of Hershey's... I'll have to give up :shock:

Oh hang on, Galaxy isn't a Cadbury product is it?

i like em too, but nothing can beat a dairy mlik bar, and i do belive cadburys own green and blacks as well and they do proper chocolate

i give it anything between 6 months to year before they start closing factorys down or maybe even bournville to move production overseas cause it will be cheaper :(

Recently I've started eating Milka chocolate rather than cadburys. It's quite nice, but tastes just like sugar :p

On a serious note, are we going to have to cancel easter cause we can't get cadburys easter eggs, or cream eggs, those cheapy eggs are horrible...yuck Whats going to happen to chocolate buttons every toddlers going to be in tears and the mothers, half for you and half for me days are numbered.

I'm wondering how many job loses they're going to be.
It might benefit the American workforce, it not going to benefit us.
Kraft went into 7 billion debt to buy it, you wonder were the money came from the banks or the American goverment.

That's another british industry been sold off.

Sold off on borrowed money. How does that work then?

We could have bought it on borrowed money. True Neps, Kath and I would have eaten the profits.(If there were any).
