The contents of the first truck were unveiled on 1 December, where those residing in Liverpool were pleasantly surprised by a Christmas grotto made entirely out of chocolate

On 2 December a branded truck made its way to Bath, where a giant 'cadvent' mistletoe was erected. Passers-by were encouraged to stand on the circular podium to "share a Christmas kiss".

Day three saw Cadbury’s purple-coloured truck stop off at Stow-On-The-Wold to unveil a giant Christmas tree in the town square. The brand donated purple baubles to decorate the tree, and its chocolate products were in bountiful supply.

Locals were encouraged to pop down to the tree from 3pm to write their own personal message, and take part in the switch-on event at 6pm with mayor Mike Curtis.

Cadbury visited the winner of its Twitter competition in Cambridge on 4 December. The number four truck visited the individual's university campus from 3-7pm, handing out sweet treats.  

On Saturday (5 December) the truck stopped off at London’s South Bank to generate excitement around the capital’s Jingle Bell Ball event, offering chocolate treats to passers-by.

Yesterday (6 December) a free cinema experience was unveiled at Cathedral Square in Peterborough. The activity sought to provide locals with a break from their Christmas shopping via the screening of two classic festive films – The Snowman and Father Christmas - between 3.30pm and 6.30pm.
