In 1824, John Cadbury opened a grocer’s shop at 93 Bull Street, Birmingham in the 1830's. Among other things, he sold cocoa and drinking chocolate, which he prepared himself using a pestle and mortar. The Cadbury manufacturing business was born in 1831, when John Cadbury decided to start producing on a commercial scale and bought a four-story warehouse in nearby Crooked Lane. The first Cadbury Easter egg was made in 1875. The earliest eggs were made with dark chocolate and had a smooth, plain surface. They were filled with sugar-coated chocolate drops known as 'dragees’. Later Easter eggs were decorated and had their plain shells enhanced with chocolate piping and marzipan flowers. In 1904, George Cadbury Jr. was given the challenge to develop a milk chocolate bar with more milk than anything else on the market. At first, Cadbury resisted creating an alkalized cocoa (a product made less bitter by adding harmless carbonate of potash) having emphasized the purity of their own cocoa. But, eventually, the company realized that alkalized cocoa was the future and created Bournville Cocoa. Cadbury Dairy Milk started out in pale mauve with red script, in a continental style 'parcel wrap’ at its launch in 1905. The full Dairy Milk range became purple and gold in 1920.
