Cadbury's Hit Back After People Criticise Ad Showing Same Sex Couple Kissing Over Chocolate Egg | 22 Words

Cadbury's latest advert has come under fire for showing a same-sex couple kissing over a creme egg. People are outraged, but not for the reason you might think...

Chocolate really is just the best.

For many, it's more than just a tasty treat. It's something with emotional links, and has actually been proven to stimulate happy chemicals in the brain.

The chocolate making process is somewhat of an art form.

The fact that chocolate is made from beans almost gives it a fairytale quality... There certainly appears to be at least a little bit of magic involved.

Either way, it's very good stuff.

There's nothing quite like a little (or large) bit of chocolate to instantly soothe and cheer. Think of it as a natural (and very cheap) form of therapy.

Some of us think of ourselves as chocolate aficionados.

Perhaps you've cultivated a finely-tuned palate for chocolate over the years. Maybe you just think of yourself as something of a chocolate expert.

If that's the case, working for a chocolate company might be your dream career!

And Cadbury's is up there as one of the top dogs when it comes to chocolate.

But their recent commercial has angered a few people...

Cadbury’s has released an LGBT+ inclusive advert featuring two men kissing over their iconic Easter product, the Creme egg. And the reason why people are angry is downright hilarious...

Their new "Golden Goobilee" egg celebrates 5 decades since the brand first launched...

And the new commercial centers around all the weird and wonderful ways the British public eats their Creme egg.

The ad then cuts to 2 men holding hands as they spin around in a circle...

One holds a Creme egg in his mouth and the other leans in to bite the egg saying, "Sharers? Yeah, we are down with that!"

LGBT+ representation in big brand adverts has increased massively over the years...

Mark Runacus, chairman of PrideAM, said the adverts are a step in the right direction: "We don’t deny that creating LGBTQ-inclusive ads can be a minefield, particularly if the people behind the work are straight, but it is so important to the progression of the queer rights movement that LGBTQ+ people are more visible in the media."
