The long-running confectionary company put the nation’s taste buds to the test earlier this year with an online competition. Chocolate aficionados had to guess the flavour of the two mystery chocolate bars to be in with a chance of winning a £5,000 mystery prize.
The competition attracted thousands of entries from across the UK - but what are the flavours of Cadbury’s mystery chocolate bars, and how many actually got it right?
What are the Cadbury mystery flavours?
Cadbury revealed on Thursday 13 October that rhubarb & custard was the flavour for Mystery Bar One and blue raspberry slushie was the flavour for Mystery Bar Two.
Overall it is estimated that there were around 6,861 lucky winners. All of those who guessed successfully have been entered into a ballot with a chance of winning the Cadbury mystery prize.
What were the most common guesses?
The latest Cadbury competition proved immensely popular and attracted wide scale debate on social media, with many different people coming up with different theories and ideas on what the flavours could be. Overall, it is estimated that over 300,000 people took part in the competition.
Some of the most popular guesses for Mystery Bar One included apple crumble, pear drops and Turkish Delight. Other guesses included cherry bakewell, peaches and cream and apple pie and cream.
For Mystery Bar Two, the most popular guesses were blueberry muffin, blueberry cream and blueberry bubble gum. In a bid to correctly guess the chocolate bar flavour, many fans also went for more obscure suggestions including berry delight, strawberry cheesecake and gooseberry.
The chocolate giant reported that people from London submitted the highest number of correct answers, closely followed by Birmingham and Manchester in joint second place.

A spokesperson for Cadbury said that the company has been blown away by the response and interest that the competition generated.
