Celebrating the science of chocolate

What is three foot tall, one and a half feet wide and weighs 60kg? A giant chocolate egg created by Cadbury World as part of National Science and Engineering Week.

Chocolatiers at the Birmingham based attraction have created the egg using an incredible 60kg of Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate which will be on display at this year’s Big Bang Fair at the NEC, as part of Mondelēz International’s podium with the Food and Drink Federation’s (FDF) Taste Success stand.

The Big Bang Fair is part of National Science and Engineering Week which is a ten-day national programme of science, technology, engineering and maths events. The Big Bang Fair aims to get young people interested in the variety of exciting and rewarding career opportunities available in science and engineering.

The giant egg, which has been created using the equivalent of 1,333 bars of standard size Cadbury Dairy Milk bars and took the on-site chocolatiers four days to create. Decorated with chocolate and cocoa equations and edible handcrafted nuts and bolts on the outside, the Bournville scene inside reflects the ‘factory in the garden’.

The egg will be returning to the attraction for visitors to see during Cadbury World’s Science Weekend. Taking place from 22 – 23 March, visitors will be invited to try out the attraction’s sensory experiments including the chance to add a treat to a pot of warm liquid Dairy Milk chocolate to create their own taste sensations.
