Blog: Dean BestYou can't win 'em all...

Dean Best | 1 June 2009

After heralding the start of silly season earlier this morning, just-food's editor wants to hold up his hands and say: "I got it wrong."

No sooner had our blog pages cast doubt on whether Cadbury would have really made a takeover bid for Chewits maker, Leaf International, then the UK confectionery giant confirmed it did in fact table an offer.

Still, you can't blame us for being sceptical; after all, Cadbury has long talked about its desire to expand its presence in the gum business, which made a bid for Chewits unlikely (or so we thought).
