Cadbury’s annual ‘Inventor’ competition is back this summer – with three new fan-made Dairy Milk bars hitting shop shelves across the UK.
The iconic British chocolate brand is spoiling those with a sweet tooth by introducing a trio of new flavours to its classic Dairy Milk range. But, as part of the popular competition, Cadbury is asking chocolate fans to ‘Be The Judge’ of this year’s new Inventor bars and make the final verdict of which flavour gets to stay on supermarket shelves.
Now in its third year, the Cadbury Inventor competition challenges the nation to come up with new and exciting flavours.
Over 180,000 entries were submitted by budding inventors across the UK and Ireland this year.
The new Dairy Milk bars – which are now available to get your hands on – are Roxy’s Cadbury Dairy Milk Fizzing Cherry, Josh’s Cadbury Dairy Milk Banoffee Nut Crumble, and Sophie’s Cadbury Dairy Milk No Frownie Brownie.
The Fizzing Cherry flavoured-bar contains pieces of cherry, popping candy and biscuits, while the Banoffee Nut Crumble is made up of fudge pieces, golden almond caramel and biscuit, and the No Frownie Brownie includes chocolate brownie chunks, salted caramel chips and biscuits.
Cadbury is asking fans to taste each chocolate bar and pick their favourite based on a listing of tasting criteria, which features everything from the design of the packaging and the smell of the chocolate, right to the texture, feeling, nostalgia factor, and of course the taste.
It’ll be a tricky decision, but someone’s got to make it.
“We know the Cadbury Inventor competition is a fan-favourite because it allows for delicious new ingredients and flavours to be explored and tasted,” said Pippa Rodgers, Brand Manager at Cadbury UK.
“This year has really set the bar high.
“Together with Josh, Roxy and Sophie, we couldn’t be more excited to share the three delicious Cadbury Dairy Milk flavours with the nation – but sadly there can only be one winner [and now] it’s time for us to put it to our experts, the fans, to ‘Be The Judge’ and decide what bar is worthy of returning to supermarket shelves next year.”
The three new Dairy Milk bars are now stocked at all major supermarket retailers across the UK, and you can cast your votes online via the Cadbury Inventor website here.
You can vote for your favourite to be crowned the winner up until 5 September 2021.
‘Please explayn’ – fans gutted as Kellogg’s axes popular cereal from variety pack
Kellogg’s has axed one of the best cereals from its variety packs, and people are not happy…
Shoppers have noticed that the breakfast food creator, which has its headquarters here in Greater Manchester, has removed Frosties from its mini selection packs.
The popular cereal, arguably the best one in the mulitpacks, is a sugar-coated take on the classic Corn Flakes.
But now the Tony the Tiger-fronted snack has been dropped from the line-up, swapped for a third box of Coco Pops instead.
People have complained to Kellogg’s that there’s no longer ‘much variety’ in the variety packs, with one customer’s seven-year-old child even penning a ‘verry upset’ letter of complaint.
One person said: “@KelloggsUKI not much “variety” in here lads. 3 x Coco Pops. Letting yourselves being bullied into removing the Frosties? Piss poor, won’t be buying again.”
Another wrote: “Bad decision, why not let people decide what they want to eat? – The variety packa now is as iteresting as the cardboard the food comes in. first Ricicles and now Frosties.”
Someone else reminisced on their childhood, when there were apparently eight different options.
One tweet said: “Kellogg’s I dont want your help in finding healthier options I want to eat Frosites – you’ve already killed off Ricicles – Why not let grown up’s decide what hey want to eat?”
Another posted: “@KelloggsUKI what the hell #mate? Was gonna say recently we need two #frosties and here I find none #disgrace #breakfast”
A spokesperson for Kellogg’s said on Twitter: “We can confirm that we have recently taken the decision to remove Frosties from the variety pack. Thank you for expressing your thoughts about the change, please be assured that we will pass this sentiment back to our marketing department.”
King Charles III acceded to the throne on 8 September 2022, and on the day of his Coronation, will be 74 years old – making him the oldest person to be crowned monarch in British history.
The King will be coronated alongside his wife and the Queen Consort, Camilla, in a religious ceremony held at Westminster Abbey in London – which is the same place his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II‘s Coronation was held in 1953, as was her State Funeral in September of last year.
The ceremony will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and is expected to be a more “simmered down” event in comparison to that of the late Queen’s Coronation.
Buckingham Palace said the Coronation will “reflect the monarch’s role today” and will “look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry” – with more details about the ceremony and celebrations on a national scale expected to be announced “in due course”.
But, on a more personal scale locally, Manchester City Council has just announced that residents in the borough can apply to close their road off so they can throw a street party.
The Council says it want residents from all over the city to “dust off the bunting and join their neighbours to celebrate the historic weekend” by hosting a traditional street party, and for those wishing to do so, if you make sure to submit an application by a certain deadline, then the road closure fee will be waived.
On top of this, Oldham Council has also announced that it applications are open for residents to apply for £100 grants to be put towards community street parties.
100 grants are available being awarded on a first come, first served basis.
Other Greater Manchester boroughs are also expected to announce celebration plans in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled.
