Get your free Dairy Milk Chocolate (image by May Cross)
Did someone say free chocolate? Yes, you heard correct. From Sunday 22nd July to Friday 27 July, the Cadbury "Share the Taste" campaign is coming to Melbourne and regional Victoria. During the campaign, Cadbury is encouraging Australian's to create "moments of connection" with their loved ones. Cadbury will be very generously giving away the most chocolate EVER for free.
All you have to do is turn up at the pop up at the appointed time and put your hand out. There will be tons of blocks of Cadbury Dairy Milk given away. Dairy milk chocolate is Australia's most popular chocolate. And I have scoffed my share of it over the years (and probably a few other people's share too, if I am being honest). The free blocks of chocolate will be available at various locations throughout Victoria. Look for the Cadbury Dairy Milk RV van in the unmissable purple (a colour synonymous with Cadbury chocolate). Head to the RV for games, music and chocolate (of course!). See more details and recipes from the official Cadbury website.

Did you know that after Cadbury in England merged with J.S. Fry in 1919, the new company expanded internationally and decided to build a factory in Australia? Tasmania was chosen as the site of Australia's factory as there was a good source of inexpensive hydro-electricity and a plentiful supply of high-quality fresh milk. The factory was modelled on the Bournville, factory, with its own village. During World war II, Cadbury became the official supplier of chocolate to the Australian Armed Forces. Ration chocolate in brown-paper was supplied to troops in the field, made from a special formula so that it did not melt in the heat of the tropics or the desert.
