i never thought i'd live to see the day that a long standing UK company would have the guts to say no to our American cousins.

Cadbury's is a national institution and it would be totally uncool for this company to be swallowed up by another country. something's should simply remain British!

Well, from the article I don't see that the companies' nationalities have anything to do with it though. Cadbury thinks it's doing fine on its own and apparently rightfully so. They probably simply saw more value in remaining independent.

I can't be sure, that's why I said there was no guarantee. And that's why I oppose it, unless any potential buyer signs some kind of contract to the effect that they wouldn't make changes. But even then, Cadbury would no longer be the British institution it has become (if they were to be bought out by a foreign company). I certainly don't want that at all.

And that is exactly why most corporations end up getting bankrupt; They end up limiting their customer base, stick with old concepts for the sake of protectionism, don't expand their given markets and end up getting cleaned out; Jaguar and Lotus would be prime examples of that.

In case of Cadbury, they really don't have much to gain by letting a U.S. corporation owning the majority shares since they already have a strong market in the U.S. and around the world.

Speak for yourself! So I take to you mean like me, Iím a vegetarian. Bit of a sweeping generalization there.

Why should it matter anyway, whether it is an ounce or kilogram included in the product. Itís still a product of the animal, and if people refuse to eat it that is there choice. I doubt very many vegetarians will decide just to eat it anyway because it was only an animal enzyme included.

Actually no. Info:

Note: The "American" Marathon Bar is not to be confused with the "English" Marathon Bar. The British confection was a chocolate, caramel, and peanut bar sold in the U.S. under the familiar name, Snickers. Mars renamed the British Marathon to Snickers in the early 1990s.

Cadbury's Curly Wurly (Marathon) BarTo confuse matters even more, Cadbury sells a bar called "Curly Wurly" that is nearly identical to the old Mars Marathon bar. Right now it is only sold into Germany, New Zealand, Netherlands, Canary Islands, Canada, France, Spain, Malta, Ireland, Faroes, Iceland, and the UK.

It's all chocolate. At least when I make it. There's a bunch of flavors but my favorite is the plain chocolate. The way I make it is just one and a half bag of chocolate chips, 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, and a dash of salt. Melt it in a pan over low heat, spread it on wax paper in a pan and put it in the fridge til it hardens. Bam! Fudge. You could put nuts or something in there if you wanted to I guess. Fudge seems to me to be a more home made kind of thing. Or they have special fudge shops sometimes. But I don't think you can just buy it like a normal candy bar. At least in my experience.

Oh. Here, fudge is just fudge, no chocolate. The special version is made with proper clotted cream, but chocolate covered is well rare.

Well, considering the Snickers was American anyway it shouldn't have mattered much. Now if they try and change the Curly Wurly to the Twisty Wisty than you might have a beef... :)

i never said anything about Snickers, only that it was called a Marathon over here (god knows why though) :vlol:

as for Curly Wurly, you see i like those :D they better not have a name change :vlol:

So is it like a carmel kind of thing?

Sort of. Toffee is the hard brittle and darker stuff. Caramel is much thinner and runnier- you could pour it and stir it. Fudge is a bit like a fondant, like a peppermint cream. Its firm, but easily squished and melts if it gets too hot. I guess its a bit like caramel, but with added milk or cream. What does American fudge look like?

It's more or less squares of chocolate and it's generally the consistency you described.

In what way? I mean, feeding Mars bars to animals isn't my idea of cruel.

Travel around the world as I have. You would be sick if you witnessed how supposed "pets" are treated in many countries. No matter what "horrors" you believe exist in the western world pertaining to animals and pets, it pales in comparison to many of the other places that I have seen. Not saying that this somehow condones mistreatment on any level or anyplace, but relatively speaking the animals here in the west are more than pampered.

I used to like them too. Biggest candy bar you could get for your quarter.

I don't think the sale is completely off. I read they didn't like the price.

I'm not informed to talk about this Mars situation but my moral principles aren't exactly relative to the place of the world we're talking about. I mean, whether or not animals are LESS abused in the west is completely irrelevent when we're talking about the abuse that still happens in developed countries.

It's exactly the same with human rights, many people think it's OK to ignore violations of human rights when they happen in the West or by western countries because generally speaking we're so much better off here! I fail to see why.

Australia was once ruled by the British Empire. Therefore, the Union Jack is incorporated into the Australian flag. ;)
