When I was a child I loved Pink Panther chocolate bars, well it was sold as chocolate but I don't think it could be called chocolate now  ::)

Ooh no. Not heard of that yet.

Went to a talk on the history of Bournville and the Cadbury family last week. It was fascinating. Included a film made in the 1950s showing the factory and lifestyle in the garden village. Noticeable how no-one on the production line wore any gloves in those days!

One of the Cadbury great grandchildren was on Dragons Den,,
Trying to get money to help with his own chocolate.
It was aimed at the higher price range, and good for gifts,as the packaging was lovely.
However, most of them pulled out because of his name, as they were worried they’d have to spend loads money on legal expenses, as the current owners wouldn’t like them using the Cadbury name, even though it’s his birth right.....I think, Peter Jones took him on though, and said, he didn’t care if they did take them to court, because being the grandson with the name Cadbury, was his birth right......interesting.......🤔
Mr Cadbury at that time, built, and bought property for his workforce to live in. He really was good, and that area of Bournville is still lovely to this day.....
