We had read that the factory itself was no longer open to visitors like it used to be so no big surprises when we arrived. There was also a sign out front stating this fact so we were well prepared for not being able to visit the factory floor. The older lady who ran the information session ( half an hour) was just lovely and greeted many people as they came into the building. Staff at entrance where we paid our $4 were also welcoming and friendly. I thought the half hour session on background of Cadburys and how chocolate is made was really interesting and informative and I loved the fact that it was delivered by someone who had worked at Cadburys for a long time and who was enthusiastic in the delivery of her talk. It was refreshing to be in a place where everything and everyone wasn't 'corporatised' - they all seemed to be happy doing their jobs and working for. Cadburys. We had a hot chocolate in the cafe and what a chocolate drink it was - half full of grated white and milk chocolate with frothy milk added to it - good value for money as it was just SO filling! Chocolates for sale are very cheap in comparison with shop prices and a really good range. We loved visiting Cadburys in Claremont and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I am surprised at how many people have been unhappy about not being able to visit the factory floor to watch the chocolate making process first hand as in these days of over the top Occupational Health and Safety rules and regulations in our country there would be very very few factories or workplaces that would allow this to happen these days.
