To coincide with the activity here are some fun facts from Cadbury on the Easter season:
1. 255,000 Cadbury Easter Eggs are made at the Bournville factory every day
2. That is 10,625 Cadbury Easter Eggs made per hour… and 177 per minute!
3. If you stacked every Cadbury Easter Egg made at Bournville every day on top of each other you’d have a tower of Cadbury Eggs as high as 98 Eiffel Towers’, 76 Empire State Building’s, 305 Big Ben’s, or 11,590 Sultan Kosen’s – the tallest man in the world!
4. Over 83 million* Easter Eggs are sold in the UK over the Easter season, with the Cadbury Creme Egg 138g Easter Egg being the most popular variant
5. Over 300 million Cadbury Creme Eggs are made every year, with about two thirds of that number being enjoyed in the UK – that is 3.5 Cadbury Creme Eggs for every man, woman and child in the country to enjoy!
6. The first Cadbury Easter egg hatched onto the production line back in 1875. These Cadbury Easter eggs were made of dark chocolate with a plain smooth surface and filled with dragées, sugar coated chocolate drops. The earliest decorated eggs were plain Easters enhanced by chocolate piping and marzipan flowers, a far cry from the exciting varieties now available on shelves!
