Shannon Beech 19, is one of the final three inventors to have their very own limited edition Cadbury Dairy Milk bar made to be sold in major supermarkets nationwide.

She entered a competition on the Cadbury Inventor website last year, coming up with the idea for Shannon’s Dairy Milk Crunchy Honeycomb.

Shannon said: “ I’ve always had a love for honeycomb and caramel, which are my two favourite flavours. The mix of golden honeycomb pieces and caramel flavoured fudge add that extra sweet flavour to the bar. Plus, with a little extra crunch from the chopped hazelnuts, I knew it would be a winning formula.

“There were lots of really fun ingredients to choose from so you can get really creative with it. I made a combination of ingredients that I loved and found out late last year that I was a finalist, and got to go to Bourneville to bring my own limited edition Cadbury Dairy Milk bar to life.

"The competition has relaunched for next year and I’d definitely recommend taking part if you’re a chocolate enthusiast.”

The budding chocolatier said it had been a surreal experience to see her Cadbury Dairy Milk Crunchy Honeycomb on the shelves saying “By Shannon”.

All three new limited edition bars will be put to the public vote, going head to head to be crowned the nations favourite.
