Taking a bite out of chocolate factory…

Bath Demolition eats its way through historic facility.

If you’re a chocaholic (reformed) like me, then you may know that the Somerdale Factory in Keynsham near Bristol is something of a Mecca for those cursed with a sweet tooth.

According to Wikipedia, the factory was the home of Fry’s Chocolate Cream, the Double Decker, Dairy Milk, Chocolate Buttons, Creme Eggs and Mini Eggs, Cadbury’s Fudge, Chomp and Crunchie. According to Cadbury employees (or ‘chocolate welders’ as they are locally known), the Crunchie machine made over one million bars a day.

The factory sadly closed in February 2010, following the takeover of Cadbury plc by Kraft Foods. And now it has been demolished. Check out the video below:
