Britain Values Nothing: Kraft Takeover of Cadburys

Recommended Posts

I have been following the Kraft takeover story with trepidation since it was announced, and its coming true, another UK firm with a mainly honourable history and tradition flushed away by short tem asset strippers. The logical conclusion to this trend is that we fill our great buildings with pigshit, say Kings College Chapel for starters, we might get a better price that way, does anyone know the going rates for pigshit storage?

So now I embark on a Quixotic boycott of both Kraft and Cadburys, useless? probably, but I can't be party to such socio-economic vandalism.

And they were undervalued at 850p per share.

Not sure what all the hoohah is about really. It's a publically traded corporation that makes fairly mediocre chocolate. As an article I was reading pointed out, at least it wasn't Hersheys :up:

My Gran used to do Cadbury's accounts in the 1950s/60s. It's pretty sad that a British institution has been swallowed up by a foreign investor but i doubt that it'll affect the chocolate that they make.

And anyone that says that Double Deckers are mediocre is a lunatic. I'm looking at you Le Stu...:moody:

To clarify my point, it's the chocolate itself that's not so great. Their confectionery products are very good, and I very much enjoy a flake on occasion. However, I went to a real 'mom and pop' chocolate factory once, where they start out from the cacao beans and the difference in quality was quite obvious to me.

I'm just glad our Dear Leader didn't get his nose under the tent this time. He would somehow have managed to destroy two companies for the price of one and nationalised the result.

their "chocolate" is not chocolate and it is full of sugar and fat. Saying that I like it.

It's also worth pointing out that Cadbury is already owned by Hersheys in the States. Also, for those getting pissy about factories potentially closing down, Cadbury have been moving production to other countries in Europe for years now!!!

Hershey chcoloate is pretty foul but some of their bars and stuff are good. The Cookies n Chocolate bars are immense, and I love Hershey Kisses, especially the bars that come in the prism packaging, like Toblerone. They make Reese's Peanut Butter Cups as well, which is possibly the only chocolate product that I would actually shag. They can stick their Nutrageous bars up their arse though.

I like the Hesheys with almonds, because almonds in chocolate is genius :up:

I think Hersheys just make Cadburys stuff under license, RF Scott.

*actually, yes, I suppose if I'm sucking on a flake then it would look like I'm felating a chocolate cock. I suppose now the yanks own it there's no chance of these ads coming back.

While I'll agree that Cadbury is part of British tradition it is more of a multinational corporation in its current guise. They (it?) employ over 70,000 staff worldwide with only 3,000 of those in the UK. It's also publicly owned so it's not really up to anyone but the stockholders and potential investors/buyers to say what the value of the company is. There's nothing to suggest that current ownership is British given that cadbury plc is listed on the NYSE as well as the LSE.

I don't like it but that's how it is.

Lindt chocolate utterly wipes Cadbury's. There's also this dark chocolate you can get that is filled with a thin layer of raspberry, can't remember what it's called though. Cote d'Noire or something possibly? Anyway, I think it's amazing.
