Cadbury’s Glass and a Half shop allows you to buy chocolate with your old knick knacks - Thurs 25th – Sun 28th Jan, 10am – 6pm

LocalFound 19th Jan
Cadbury is opening a Glass and a Half shop – a store with a giant difference… no money will be accepted! Instead you can swap your trinkets and knick-knacks for your favourite bar of Cadbury Dairy Milk. That means even an old plastic ring, forgotten keyring or an old button (basically anything) can be exchanged for a delicious bar of chocolate – time to get digging in those pockets! No Cash required!

There are over 10,000 bars to give away over 4 days and the shop will be open between 10am to 6pm, leaving you enough time to pop in on your lunch break or after work.

Once the London shop has closed, Cadbury will be opening more Glass and a Half shops in Birmingham and Sheffield. Cadbury are also creating a digital activation so no matter where you are you can get your own bar from their online newsagents in the same way as the real stores.

For more information visit facebook.com/Cad…yUK or tweet them at @CadburyUK using #glassandahalf.

Wonder if I could swap some of my old flamedeer...
"old knick-knacks"? Only if they've got the old recipe. The Cadbury "Candy" stuff is not for me
I'll swap some fruit and nut.

Who knows it may remind them of the good old days when my favourite chocolate had them in abundance instead of the chopped bullshine they put in them now.

Kraft are destroying a British institution for the sake of profit.

Yep - trading on past glory (and ethics) and fooling the ignorant - for a while. Makes me feel nauseous these days - I've moved on to Aldi chocolate which is excellent and cheaper!

Never has the old phrase, "I wouldn't pay them in buttons." been more apt!
I will stick to Aldi fairtrade chocolate thanks. Cant believe what they have done to Cadburys.
I'll swap for some oil & sugar...which is what their chocolate tastes of now

As long as the uninformed masses continue to buy nothing will be done
Their chocolate tastes like crap now. No change there then, it's always been a low quality product.
Another British brand ruined when taken over by Mondelez International (originally Kraft Foods).

Will they accept a bottle of old bottle of Crisp'n'Dry Vegetable Fat in my kitchen cupboard?
I wanted to be fair, and swap like with like.

Everyone should take them a 200g bar of Aldi/Lidl's £1.29 Fruit and Nut as a swap, so they get the message of what real chocolate is today. Lidl did the adult thing and raised the price, rather than reduce the size, reduce the quality, as Cocoa butter prices rose.

Tastes exactly the same as it did 20 ****** years ago to me whats the big hoo har with Kraft Foods

Clicking the link on this deal to the Cadbury's Facebook page is utterly shocking at how the comments on every thread are full of ignorant islamophobes harping on about how chocolate is Halal, presumably they want Cadburys to start adding meat to all their bars.

And even on here 90% of the comments are full of people hating on the recipe (which at least has some basis in reality), along with one of the top voted comments chucking in an anti-semetic slur for good measure.

What's coming to the world when something as simple as giving away free chocolate seems to inspire so much anger?
Wonder if the best before date on the "chocolate" is 28th Jan haha

If that "British institution" had not sold itself to Kraft to make a profit then Kraft would not be able make any changes. Blaming Kraft alone is a nonsense.
If I was to be a pedant about this, I would have to say this isn't free since there is still an exchange, you can't just walk in and take one, you have to give them something in return, it's just the thing you give them isn't cash. I suppose you can give them something worthless but still for a little chocolate bar, who can be bothered?

Just another daft and no doubt costly marketing stunt IMHO. If Cadbury (well Kraft really) took all that money they blew on silly marketing stunts and instead just priced the stuff more reasonably in shops, where the remaining 99.9% of their chocolate bars are actually sold, they wouldn't be any worse off and more people would 'benefit'.

Plus what do they do with all the old tat people bring them? They aren't going to bother trying to resell it. I suppose they say they 'recycle it responsibly' so in other words probably all goes in the bin....

People love finding things to be angry about, these days. Part of the new generation.
Will they accept taking in old 'moaning minnies' and anti Islamic bigots, as this and their FB pages seem full of them!!n

Kraft made several promises prior to the takeover, regarding jobs etc and then shafted everyone with their ceo then refusing to attend parliament to answer questions.

They are a corporate giant who gobbled up a minnow in Cadbury and the small shareholders and workers had no say in what big shareholders did, like the pension funds etc, when they sold their shares to kraft.

Kraft, after breaking their promises, proceeded to change long standing recipes for increased profits.

My Brother worked for them and my sister in law still does, and told me they reduce the expensive ingredients for cheap ones like their own brand mish mash up like mixtures of chocolate and ritz etc.

Fruit and nut is now chopped fruit and nut and you are a lucky if you get a bar with both fruit and nuts and sizes have been vastly reduced.

So tell me who do I blame?

This was really bad form considering the origins of Cadbury was philanthropical, a benevolent employer looking after worker welfare in Bournville. Drifted away from any Cadbury products now apart from the drinking chocolate which they haven't messed with yet, but give them time.

Not a proponent of free speech, then. Congratulations, you're the most offended person in the discussion, have a bar of dairy milk.
I don’t buy their industrial gloop anymore.
Fab will trade in mother in law ex husband and two teenage kids! Fairvwsap?
Next time you buy a bar of "chocolate" check to see if cocoa butter is even mentioned in the ingredients. Cocoa butter is one of the items extracted from the cocoa bean, Unfortunatley it has more value being sold to the cosmetic industry than being added back into chocolate, Instead palm oil is substituted for cocoa butter - to me the consequence on taste/flavour is YUCK.

Of course YMMV if you like palm oil.

Go on a youtube video and look at the comments, doesnt really matter which video.

As for it being Halal, surely it has been for years as it has been suitable for vegetarians for as long as I can remember.

It doesnt taste that bad either, some bars seem better than others though and the sizes have shrank on some things. Though when the sugar tax affects confectionary then it will be awful stuff.
I hadn't noticed how bad it tasted now until I got Cadbury's Roses for Christmas. Tasted like a box of chemicals!
The plain diary milk tastes no different to the past (and if it does it don't remember and the stuff now tastes just as enjoyable), and I can't find anything bad with the Fruit & Nut either (other than sizes). Are these claims of the chocolate tasting like chemicals really as justified as people make out? Which are the chocolates that taste terrible now

Nope, I've read steoc's comment several times and can't see any argument against free speech.

Your comment seems typical of a failure of logic and understanding often exhibited by racists, anti-semites, Islamophobes, etc, and those who defend their rights to free speech.

If you want to be free to express yourselves you have to accept that other people have the right to express their view that that's racist, etc. Trying to paint such as an attack on free speech just makes you a snowflake.
I'd take some cheap no name processed cheese and when they asked me why i wanted to pay with that i would tell them they are now the chocolate equivalent, good day sir, i said good day!

Yep,has changed a lot to how it was when I was a kid.

'Gentrified',Caffe Nero,Wagamama etc.. and all the other chains have moved in now.
I dunno about all this cadburys hating. Seems fashionable to go along with it.

I'd take a free bar of dairy milk if I could get one. Doesn't taste bad to me.

The fruit and nut had proper (round) nuts and proper raisons, now you have to send a search party to find either in the smaller chopped pale imitation of a once enjoyable bar of chocolate.

No hating here, just the facts.

"Cadbury UK Just to clear things up here, in UK our chocolate is suitable for vegetarians & those following a Muslim diet, however they're not Halal certified. The only animal related products we use in UK are milk & eggs. We point out if & when our products are suitable for particular requirements or not."
