Cadbury's Shares Hit Record High

Shares in national institution Cadbury's have hit a record high 817 pence today, as potential suitors put on their best Armani suits and slick back their hair.

Having given Kraft's hostile bid the chocolate finger, Cadbury's board of directors are believed to be more receptive to 'friendlier' approaches from US-based Hershey's or Italian giants Ferrero.

Switzerland's Nestle are also said to be considering a move.

Krafty Kraft's bid, which valued Cadbury's shares at 723 pence, now looks woefully short of the mark, but don't be surprised to see them come back in with a higher offer.
