Today we visited Cadbury World in Birmingham.  About 2 hours West of Peterborough.  2 hours drive and we had to stop at a gas station half way there to get a drink and have a toilet stop.  :o)

The factory was awesome.  They had a great tour that took you right from the beginning of Cadbury chocolate, how it was founded right through to the finished product you see today.  They had several areas including ones you could write your name in chocolate, temper it by hand, a ride through the times and video rooms that show you the original creators. 

This factory can pack 800 bars a minute and turns out 1200 tonnes of chocolate bars a week!  The smell in this place is devine!

Then it was out to the shop where I proceeded to buy 33 worth of chocolate and souveniors but felt slightly better that even Jo spent 20 and they have been there several times before! 

Home about 5.30pm... all of us exhausted.  Stopped again on the way home to have some food and another toilet break.  It was pitch black by about 4.30 and freezing and apparently a good chance of snow tonight!!

Off to bed early tonight!
