Once upon a time nearly 200 years ago now a young man named John Cadbury opened a shop in Birmingham selling coffee,tea and drinking chocolate later Johns brother Benjamin joined the company and they formed the business Cadbury Brothers of Birmingham.

Years later Cadbury Brothers business flourished selling their own brand of chocolate but Benjamin Cadbury was particularly fond of their Chocolate Buttons. During the First World War more than 2000 male employees of Cardbury's joined the armed forces but their children always got their daily supply of chocolate buttons and again in the second World War children always got their chocolate buttons.

Many years later in the year 2010 the business known as Cadbury lost their independence when they were eventually bought by the American company Kraft.

The factories in England may eventually close but will they still be able to make chocolate buttons the same way as the original recipe of John and Benjamin 'Button' Cadbury.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
