the birthplace of the cadbury creme egg

It all dates back to 1824. John Cadbury had a shop in Birmingham, England, where he was trying to perfect the recipe for drinking chocolate. Fast forward to 1875, when Cadbury was trying to one-up his competitor and thus, the original variation of the Cadbury egg was born! Today, the eggs are produced at 1.5 million per day at the Bournville factory. I had the chance to visit Cadbury World, which is a semi-self-guided museum tour that teaches you about the history of Cadbury. The girls and I made the 2.5 hour train ride from London, just to check this place out. Unfortunately, we were expecting much more than just a Cadbury museum. However, while you don’t get a factory tour, you do get the chance of seeing some chocolates being hand-made.

Other than Cadbury World, there’s lots of shopping to do in Birmingham so that’s what we did to kill time until our train back to London.
