Cadburys

  • A Roscommon teenager is one of the finalists in a competition to create a new chocolate bar.

    17-year old Callum Clogher from Dysart is one of three finalists in the Cadbury Inventor competition, which called on chocolate lovers in Ireland and the UK to create a new bar.

    Based on his love for chocolate and coffee, Callum has created the Cadbury Dairy Milk Choca-Latte, which is now on sale in shops.

    He and his fellow finalists, who are both from the UK, visited Cadbury's factory in Birmingham earlier this year, where they saw their inventive creations being made.

    Members of the public can vote for their favourite bar, and the winner will be announced in September.

     

  • A Co Roscommon teenager has defeated tens of thousands of hopefuls to create Cadbury's newest chocolate bar.

    17-year old Callum Clogher from Dysart spoke to Midwest News during the Summer when he was selected as one of three finalists in the Cadbury Inventor competition, which called on chocolate lovers in the UK and Ireland to create a new bar.

    Callum was the only Irish finalist, and he has now won the overall competition, with his "Choca-latte" - a chocolate, vanilla and biscuit bar which racked up the most sales and online votes, after being on the shelves for several months.

    His creation will now be on sale for the next year.

    Callum, who's starting his final year in secondary school, has thanked everyone in Ireland who voted for him, and helped him win the overall competition, which initially attracted over 220,000 entries.

    He told Midwest News that he's delighted to have won the overall competition.....
