Christmas Countdown: Cadbury’s Santa’s Workshop Dairy Milk – From New Zealand!

CC_New Zealand Santa's Workshop Title Plate

It’s Christmas Eve and here at my mother’s house that means we are preparing things in anticipation of our big Christmas Eve dinner.   I’ve temporarily cleared a place at the dinner table to write today’s post before everyone arrives, and the smell of home-baked bread is delightfully filling the air.

For today’s post, I’m going to share a set of Christmas-themed Dairy Milk wrappers from my collection that were released by Cadbury’s New Zealand branch in the 1990’s.  They feature fun Christmastown scenes like Rudi Reindeer and a Skating Santa.

Here they are:

I’ve got to run as family is about to arrive and I need to clear my laptop from the dinner table.

So from to all of my visitors who celebrate the holiday:  Merry Christmas from CollectingCandy.com!!

  1. Afew years back ‘Cadbury’ put up a wrapper on their family blocks with Christmas stories on them. One in particular was about the angel and drummer boy and their placement on the Christmas tree. I have been searching the web ever since and can’t locate this story. Would you know of it? Clutching at straws here! Thanks and have a great day.

  2. Thankyou for the quick reply. I live in Australia and it was 2009 or 2010 I thonk.
