121-year-old Cadbury Coronation Chocolates to be Sold at Auction

An untouched 121-year-old tin of Cadbury chocolates will be soon sold at an auction in Europe.

The perfectly-preserved sweets were made by Cadbury to celebrate the coronation of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in 1902.

They were given to nine-year-old Mary Ann Blackmore at her school that year.

Instead of eating them, she decided to keep them as a memento of the occasion.

The vanilla chocolates were passed down through her family until her granddaughter, Jean Thompson, 72, brought the tin to Hanson’s Auctioneers in Derby.

Morven Fairlie, of Hansons Auctioneers, said: “Back in that time, this was a real treat, children never got chocolate.

The chocolates will be auctioned at Hansons and are expected to fetch at least £100 to £150, or about $165 American dollars.
