Real Cadbury or Bust: Art For Coping With the British Chocolate Shortage

Like fashion, candy has comes in seasons. Most people have a favorite candy time of year: if you’re into peppermint, it’s December; if you love chocolate covered cherries, it’s February; and if you’re like us. It’s anytime that you can get Cadbury crème eggs. That’s why we’ve been in mourning recently since Hershey won a lawsuit banning Cadbury from importing their UK-manufactured products into the U.S. It isn’t a full on tragedy – Hershey’s manufactures Cadbury labeled products in the U.S., so we’ll still be able to indulge, but real UK Cadbury has 10% more cocoa than the American version, so it really is not the same. Not to mention that this might make it impossible to get our other favorite Cadbury exports – we want our Flake and Dairy Milk bars, too! Here are some awesome arts and crafts that celebrate the Cadbury brand as much as we do! 

1. Dig In

If you can’t actually get your hands on some Cadbury, why not get some Cadbury on your hands? You may need some help with those wrappers to prevent chips though.

2. The Ultimate Anti-Depressant

Artist Kate Talbot’s piece Meltdown is a deliciously felted pile of all your Cadbury favorites. Just make sure you don’t leave it in the hot sun.

3. London Chocolates Standing Up

Harriet Stansall’s British Brands print uses iconic UK products to recreate the London skyline. The Dairy Milk London bridge is certainly not falling down.

4. The King of Chocolate

We don’t know whether Elvis was a big Dairy Milk eater, though he certainly did enjoy any and all treats. A Dairy Milk bar certainly would be a delectable addition to one of his famous fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Laura Benjamin’s Candy King piece pays tributes to two of the greats: Elvis and junk food.

5. Wear Your Candy On Your Neck

Want to accessorize with your Cadbury Crème Egg pride? Sweet Craft Jewelry’s Cadbury Egg Necklace is just the ticket. Careful— unfortunately it’s not edible.

6. Ready To Hatch

Creepy confectioner Glouish Childs posted this amazing photo of a Chestburster from the Alien movies busting out of a crème egg. Hopefully the fetal creature is also chocolate-based, but we’d just eat around it either way.
