The best part of Easter is the incomparable knowledge of knowing that Jesus Christ rose from the dead, absolved us of all of our sins, and took His rightful place at the right hand of the Father.
Game, set, match: It doesn't get any better than that.
The worst part of Easter, meanwhile, is the Cadbury Cream Eggs. Folks, this is just science. Those things are awful. Nobody can deny it without looking foolish. They've got a bizarre faux-cream consistency, they're sickly sweet, they're a frickin mess to eat... they have nothing redeeming to them.
Thankfully, the whole House of Cadbury looks like it's on the verge of coming down:
[Cadbury's] classic creme egg is a seasonal favorite – with 200 million sold every year – and each one comes with the Cocoa Life stamp, to reassure consumers that the ingredients are ethically sourced.
But Channel 4's Dispatches – which airs tonight – has uncovered shocking child labor abuses behind our chocolate treats and, for the first time, linked them directly to the Cadbury supply chain.
During his investigation in Ghana, West Africa, reporter Antony Barnett met children as young as 10 performing backbreaking work on cocoa farms in the blazing heat, for up to nine hours a day.
Small children wielding 3ft machetes hack through tough weeds, with no protective clothing, or crack pods with long sharp knives – and many sustain serious injuries from the hazardous work.
Yeah all joking aside that's not good. Not good at all.
It's pretty disgraceful that a major global corporation can't figure out better ways to source its product than through "small children wielding 3ft machetes." This shouldn't be that hard.
This is the 21st century. You know what your supply chain is. You know your labor pool. No doubt at all.
Hopefully, Cadbury gets its act together and/or y'all stop eating their chocolate. Win-win either way!
