If you are a chocolate fanatic like us, then watch the SBS’s Slow TV on Youtube below, this Easter. Take a deep dive into the making of some of our favourite chocolate treats right from inside Australia’s own Willy Wonka-inspired Cadbury chocolate factory. And the best part is, you don’t need a golden ticket for this tour.
Discover how each individual ingredient is used for the chocolate that Aussies all know and love. From sugar harvested from the fields of north Queensland, milk from a dairy farm in northwest Tasmania, and the core ingredient imported from Ghana, cocoa, watch on as all three go through the hypnotic rhythm of melting, rolling, drying, shaping and wrapping before going to market on the shelves in the form of the iconic easter eggs and chocolate bunnies.
I’m already drooling…
Did you know that in 2020 alone, Cadbury produced 477 million Easter Eggs and 14 million Chocolate Bunnies? This requires a massive 6,014 tonnes of cocoa, 87 million litres of milk and 54 million kilograms of sugar.
