AHEAD of yesterday’s opening ceremony of the Winter Paralympic Games, South Birmingham chocolate maker has recreated PyeongChang’s snowy mountains – in chocolate.
The scene, which weighs in at an impressive 45kg, comes complete with the mischevious mischievous Chuckle Beans competing in a variety of sports including Para Nordic skiing, para alpine skiing and para snowboard.
The wintry landscape features a milk chocolate mountain, topped with white chocolate snow, a piste, snow covered fir trees and a crowd of Chuckle Bean spectators and a commemorative ParalympicsGB plaque.
Each Chuckle Bean has been individually hand-crafted and the whole model is the equivalent of 1,000 bars of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk.
It was created by two of Cadbury World’s expert chocolatiers, Dawn Jenks and Donna Oluban,
Tim Hollingsworth OBE, Chief Executive of the British Paralympic Association, said: “I am delighted to see Cadbury World capture the fun of the Games and celebrate our fantastic partnership.
“The detail in what the team of chocolatiers have crafted is brilliant, and it is great to see the Chuckle Beans turning their hand to winter para sports!”
The creation will be on display at Cadbury World, based in Bournville, Birmingham for the duration of the 2018 Paralympic Games. Cadbury and Cadbury World are owned and operated by Mondelēz International, an official Gold Partner of the British Paralympic Association.
