Perhaps the most iconic of the UK’s popular sweets, Cadbury’s is one of the largest producers of chocolate world-wide. It was founded in 1824 – almost two hundred years ago – by a man named John Cadbury. Cadbury was a successful proprietor and primarily a tea and coffee trader operating out of Birmingham. During the early years of his business, he began to sell drinking chocolate, named “cocoa” at the time. As of today, Cadbury is the second largest confectionery brand in the world after Mars, an american-owned company.
