Blog: Cadbury's Christmas message
Dean Best | 18 December 2009
Cadbury and Kraft Foods' guns were firing at each other across the pond this week - but it seems the Dairy Milk maker is taking a break over Christmas.
One of the Cadbury press team has sent an email telling us that they will still be available over the festive period - with the following message:
"I'm sure, like us, you're hoping for a nice break over the holiday period - we're currently, rather presumptuously, humming John Lennon's 'Happy Christmas (War is Over)'," the Cadbury missive reads.
"Of course we'll all be back fighting in Jan. Here's to peace in 2010."
