If you’ll be in Birmingham on Fri 2 Feb or Sheffield on Sat 3 Feb, there’s an easy way to bag yourself some FREE Cadbury chocolate…
Over the next couple of days, two newsagents – one in Birmingham, one in Sheffield, see addresses below – will be handing out free chocolate bars in exchange for a ‘knick-knack’, eg, a trinket, plastic ring, key-ring or button. Both will be open 8.30am-5.30pm each day.
Birmingham newsagent address – St Martin’s News, Unit K5, Spiceal Street, Bullring, Birmingham, B5 4BH.
Sheffield newsagent address – B&K Mistry, 455 Firth Park Road, Sheffield S5 6QQ
There will be 1,000+ chocolate bars to be given away at each location per day. Still, get down there early to avoid disappointment.
The newagents will mirror the storyline in its latest advert, where a young girl attempts to buy a bar of chocolate for her mum’s birthday with (you guessed it) some ‘knick-knacks’ from her purse, which the shopkeeper kindly accepts.
So, yes, this is a PR stunt from Cadbury, based on an advert that pulls at the heartstrings. Yet we can’t complain as it’s also free chocolate, no strings attached.
Last month, Cadbury gave away free chocolate bars in London – it was really popular and even some MSEers managed to grab a freebie. It says it’ll soon be offering free chocolate via some kind of ‘digital activation’, which, allegedly, will be available to everyone across the country. We’ve asked Cadbury to confirm all the terms and conditions for the online giveaway and we’ll update you here when we know more.
