The National Trust's egg hunters crack on despite controversy

The organisation was criticised for omitting the word ‘Easter’ from holiday events, but young chocolate-seekers don’t seem to careThe gates of Prior Park Landscape Garden in Bath opened at 10am sharp. Within an hour, four-year-old Dylan and older sister Ciara were happily chomping on chocolate bunnies, having successfully completed an egg hunt. “This is our third hunt this week,” said Ciara, 10. “The others were in our garden. We’re going home to relax now. This one was tough.” Over the Easter weekend hundreds of children will complete this trail and scores of others at National Trust parks, gardens and houses across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, most blissfully unaware of the furore that preceded them.

No yolk: Cadbury and National Trust say Easter egg row is nonsense

Chocolatier and charity say there are many references to Easter in their egg hunt marketing after Theresa May weighs in to rowFor many, it was a storm in an egg cup. But the supposed removal by Cadbury and the National Trust of references to Easter from material promoting egg hunts across the country was enough to divert the prime minister’s attention from international diplomacy and trade to garishly-wrapped confectionery.It was “absolutely ridiculous”, Theresa May said in Amman, en route for Saudi Arabia, that the National Trust had – as a Church of England spokesman put it – “airbrushed faith from Easter”. And the prime minister laid out her credentials on the subject: “I’m not just a vicar’s daughter, I’m a member of the National Trust as well,” she said. “I don’t know what they are thinking about, frankly.” Continue reading...

Easter eggs aren’t even Christian – so why squabble over them? | Peter Ormerod

Everyone can buy into a triumph of life over death, unless they’re Theresa May, Nigel Farage or the archbishop of YorkYou know the problem with Easter? It’s just not commercial enough. If only there were more corporations trying to make money out if it. The word Easter should be associated with money-making activity wherever possible. After all, we’re a Christian country, right?That at least appears to be the logic of the archbishop of York. He’s furious with Cadbury for removing the word Easter from a hunt for chocolate eggs. It’s “tantamount to spitting on the grave” of the company’s Quaker founder, John Sentamu says. Despite a descendant of Cadbury pointing out that it was unlikely he was spinning in said grave, given that as a Quaker, he didn’t celebrate Easter, Theresa May weighed in to add that the company is being “absolutely ridiculous”. And she should know: she’s a vicar’s daughter and a National Trust member who also happens to be the prime minister. Continue reading...

Kraft Heinz Withdraws $143 Billion Offer For Unilever, After Warren Buffett Got Cold Feet

Last week's mega-merger announcement, the deliberately leaked acquisition of Unilever by the Warren Buffett-backed Kraft Heinz - a deal which would create a giant consumer goods conglomerate - has fallen apart, following Unilever's adverse reaction to the deal, and speculation that Kraft would not pursue a hostile transaction.  As the FT reports, Kraft Heinz withdrew its $143bn pursuit of consumer products rival Unilever only two days after it publicly confirmed its interest in acquiring the Anglo-Dutch company. The proposed transaction would have been the largest-ever takeover in the food or beverage industry, and would have created a company with combined sales of nearly $85 billion, second only to Swiss giant Nestle. On Friday, the Anglo-Dutch company said that the $50-a-share cash and stock offer, an 18 per cent premium to its closing price on Thursday, from Kraft Heinz “fundamentally undervalues Unilever”. It added: “Unilever rejected the proposal as it sees no merit, either financial or strategic, for Unilever’s shareholders. Unilever does not see the basis for any further discussions.” In a joint statement, Kraft Heinz said it had “amicably agreed to withdraw its proposal for a combination of the two companies.” The companies added: “Unilever and Kraft Heinz hold each other in high regard. Kraft Heinz has the utmost respect for the culture, strategy and leadership of Unilever.” The statement came days after the deal was widely leaked in advance of Friday's confirmation, as we showed on Friday when we demonstrated a surge in Unilever and Kraft call purchases by certain lucky "information arbitrageurs."     It remains to be seen if the SEC has likewise pulled its probe (or ever started one) into who leaked the transaction ahead of time, and who profited. Kraft Heinz said in the statement that its “interest was made public at an extremely early stage. Our intention was to proceed on a friendly basis, but it was made clear Unilever did not wish to pursue a transaction”. It added: “It is best to step away early so both companies can focus on their own independent plans to generate value. We remain focused on driving long-term value while always putting our consumers first.” Why was the deal pulled?  According to the FT, Buffett and 3G’s Jorge Paulo Lemann "decided on Sunday morning to withdraw their approach for Unilever after they concluded that a protracted public battle to take over Unilever would have caused more damage than good to Kraft Heinz, said two people close to the talks." Mr Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and Mr Lemann’s 3G Capital control just under 50 per cent of Kraft Heinz shares. The duo, who would have contributed significant new capital to fund the deal, were also spooked by the hostile response from UK politicians who raised concerns about another large British-based company being acquired by a foreign group in the aftermath of Brexit, said one of these people. The FT also notes that the early leaking of Kraft’s interest in Unilever (not just per call option acticity but thanks to a report on the FT's own Alphaville blog) made it hard for the US company to negotiate a deal that would have been more attractive for both sides. “Kraft Heinz was ready to make a lot of concessions, including taking on the Unilever name, to make this deal happen but unfortunately it leaked to early and that made it hard negotiate,” said one person close to 3G Capital. A deal would have brought together the company behind Kraft Mac & Cheese and Heinz Tomato Ketchup with the maker of Dove soap, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Unilever shares jumped 13% to close Friday at a record 44.80 euros in Amsterdam, while Kraft Heinz, based in Pittsburgh and Chicago, also surged 11% to a record in New York trading. US stock markets are closed on Monday.

Get Your Resume Ready: There's A Job Opening For 'Chocolate Taster'

Chocolate lovers, your dream job has arrived.  Mondelez International ― owner of tasty treats including Cadbury and Oreo ― is looking to hire a “chocolate taster” to test out the company’s products. But there’s a catch. It’s a part-time gig... Oh, and you’d have to move to Reading, England. And you’d have to work out of the company’s Reading Science Centre, which probably doesn’t look like this:  Still, if you’re in the area and are available to eat chocolate from 12:15-2:45 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, the job sounds pretty sweet. The first item listed under “key responsibilities” is “be able to taste chocolate and cocoa beverage products and give objective and honest feedback.”  Should they hire you, you’d be working with a team of 11 other tasters and a leader to “share opinions and collaborate to reach an agreement on taste.” The main qualification appears to be “a passion for confectionary and taste buds for detection.” But they also want honesty, eagerness, a communicative personality and a “firm grasp of English.”  If you think you have what it takes, you can read the rest of the requirements and apply right here. Just be sure to share all that chocolate. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Оригинальный McDonald’s

Я мало бываю в других странах и уж тем более не хожу там по Макдональдсам (кстати, намекают, что в пунктах фаст-фуда гамбургеры делают из розовой слизи). По этому чисто из теоретических соображений мне казалось, что фишка этой сети питания в том, что как раз таки во всех странах продают одни и те же блюда и изделия знакомые каждому по вкусу и названию. Ну типа того, как приезжает турист в другую страну, не понимает что тут вообще едят и какой у чего вкус, а вот в Макдональдсе он узнает свою еду и купит ее. Разве я не прав?Просто оказывается почти во всех странах, где есть Макдональдс в меню есть блюда, которые продаются только в этой стране и больше таких нигде не найти. Наверное их не такой большой процент от общего списка и в общем то моя мысль верна, но все же посмотрите на них.Что бы вы попробовали?Пользователи Buzzfeed составили свой список самых вкусных и необычных пунктов меню этой популярной сети фастфуда.Фото 2.Италия: Свити с «Нутеллой» (Sweety con Nutella)Свити с «Нутеллой» — это просто бургер со знаменитой шоколадно-ореховой пастой, вот и все.
