Which came first, the Cadbury factory or the Cadbury Creme Egg? At Cadbury World you can watch chocolate candy in the making—and stand back as one ton of liquid chocolate gushes past you. Kiwis from as far away as Stewart Island have memories of school field trips here and ensuing tummy aches (the tour includes free samples of candy). Weekday tours include the factory; shorter weekend tours do not. Either way, there are around 200 steps to climb that little kids may
find challenging. This is a family-friendly place, but for safety reasons under-5s cannot be carried during tours unless you have a strap-on baby carrier. The factory is usually closed for a week in June for maintenance.
