Shhhhh don’t tell anybody, but Cadbury’s is my favourite chocolate and no matter how many times I indulge in cocoa-based carefully crafted deliciousness from around the world. There is something about the familiar taste of Cadbury’s that feels like home, in particular their TopDeck and Fruit & Nut, which are my firm favourites and have been so for years, making Cadbury’s very much a part of my every day life.
Now Plato Comms have sent me an incredibly generous goodie bag to announce their exciting new #5StarYouFest competition. It includes 5Star chocolate bars that I was so happy to try, a cool Travel Edition Scratch Map that I can’t wait to complete, a flower crown to put Snapchat to shame and gorgeous mirrored sunglasses. As well as some ‘yay to entering the competition’ announcement boards.

The Origin of Chocolate. Food of the Gods.
As a matter of interest and given the sweet topic, I thought I’d mention the origin of chocolate that can be traced back to the ancient Mayan and Aztec civilisations in Central America. ‘Theobroma cacao’, meaning ‘food of the gods’, was prized for centuries by the Central American Mayan Indians, who first enjoyed a much-prized spicy drink called ‘chocolatl’, made from roasted cocoa beans.
The Aztecs introduced cocoa to the Spaniards, who took it back to Europe in the 16th century. However it was very expensive, so only the rich could afford it. Chocolate was exclusively for drinking until the early Victorian times when a technique for making solid ‘eating’ chocolate was devised. Read the full story here.
