Blog: Dean BestCadbury'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."

Not sure there will be too much of that in the early weeks of the year....
