Windows 7: Kraft Buys Cadbury, the Horror!

20 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 Enterprise x64

According to Wikipedia (so exercise the usual caution ), Kraft and Philip Morris were both part of a parent company called Altria. Kraft was spun off as a separate company a few years ago, so technically Kraft has no direct association with tobacco and therefore neither does Cadbury.

Doesn't make me feel any better about the takeover though.

Hi there
Just wait and see.

I'll bet that Philip Moris will be in there with new "Nicotine Chocs" to help people who are wanting to use Cigarette alternatives.

Bet It'll be a big money spinner.

Chocolate and Nicotine combination -- two of the most addictive substances known to man.

I can't complain about Chocolate however I'm a big "Choco-holic".

I'll look to getting my "Fix" from Belgium now -- great chocolate there as well. Don't go NEAR the Chocolate Museum in Brussels however -- you'll never leave.

Cheers -- but sad to see Cadbury's R.I.P.

Good thing is nearly all the land is still owned by the Cadbury's Foundation and controlled by Trust deeds -- so Krafts won't be able to sell to Greedy Property developers when the market picks up - as it will -these things always do.
