The Importance of Cadbury In The History of Valentine

Did we give up on Cadbury’s too easily? Was the fight for a key part of British heritage fierce enough or was the towel thrown in too quickly? Ever since, there have been so many stories about Kraft not fulfilling their part of the deal.

I’m sure you hate as much as I do living in the past or in regret. However, I’m sure you know as much as I do that certain events tend to trigger those you wish you could forget.

With Valentine coming up, my mind goes back to the whole Cadbury’s sale. We are told the tradition of giving boxes of chocolate at Valentine was started by Richard Cadbury in 1868.

In as much as Cadbury will always be a British name and history will never be erased, I can’t help but feel somewhat sad that it’s no longer 100% British owned. Nevertheless, the future is not set in stone.

Plus, it’s good to know that the Romantic box of chocolate that millions across the globe will give out tomorrow will be as a result of Richard Cadbury’s ingenuity.

Romance certainly has its roots in the UK. Happy Valentine’s Day!
