KitKat v Kvikk Lunsj: which four-fingered chocolate bar tastes best?

Nestlé has been trying to trademark KitKat’s shape – but is its taste equally distinctive? We put it and its doppelganger to the testSay what you like about Nestlé, but it is certainly dogged. This week, the court of appeal rejected its attempt to register KitKat’s four-finger shape as a UK trademark, but that it is just the latest stage in 11 years of Europe-wide KitKat legal wrangling between the Swiss food manufacturer and one of its competitors, Cadbury.

KitKat foiled again in attempt to trademark four-fingered bar's shape

Court of appeal rules against Nestlé in its protracted battle with Cadbury over whether format should be protected by lawIt’s enough to make anyone need a sit-down with a cup of tea and a four-fingered chocolate wafer biscuit. The confectionery multinational Nestlé has lost the latest round of its long-running battle with rivals Cadbury to trademark the shape of the KitKat bar in the UK.

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...

Here's How Brexit Is Going To Affect Your Cadbury Chocolate

While that means change for a host of issues, we’re here to talk about chocolate.   Because of Brexit, Cadbury must raise its prices or shrink the size of its goods, according to Glenn Caton, the president of the northern Europe division of Mondelēz International (a U.S. food and drink corporation that owns Cadbury, which has employees in the U.K.).  In a recent interview with The Guardian, Caton said the company will “put the consumer at the heart and never compromise on quality and taste,” in order to keep the chocolate the same. Already though, Cadbury has raised the prices of its beloved Freddo chocolate frogs by 20 percent, which Mondelēz International attributed to rising commodity costs, the falling value of the pound since the Brexit vote last year and an increase in cocoa prices. There’s also an increasing cost to do business with other countries. “There are obviously challenges and there are three things that we really care about in the context of the Brexit negotiations. First of all is making sure we have a stable and thriving U.K. economy,” Canton said. “If the economy is growing all businesses benefit from that. The second is ensuring that there is no new, more complex regulation and that there is free movement of goods and minimal barriers to trade. Regulation impacts complexity, complexity impacts costs, as do trade barriers and tariffs.”  Fiona Dawson, global president of Mars, recently told the American Chamber of Commerce to the EU that under Brexit, tariffs on chocolate could be as high as 30 percent. That means extremely high prices for consumers.  “The absence of hard borders [in Europe] with all their attendant tariff, customs and non-tariff barriers allows for this integrated supply chain, which helps to keep costs down,” Dawson said, according to BBC. “The return of those barriers would create higher costs which would threaten that supply chain and the jobs that come with it.” Mondelēz International, which also owns Toblerone, already experienced a barrage of criticism back in October, when it announced that it was changing the iconic shape of its chocolate. The company made the triangles on Toblerone bars narrower and widened the gap between peaks. At the time, the company said the high cost of ingredients, not Brexit, was responsible for the change in the chocolate bar’s shape.  Below is a picture comparing the difference in the original bar (top) and what it looks like after the changes:  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
