As you know Cadbury’s Dairy Milk is a popular chocolate brand in India. Angry young-man and legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has been appointed as the brand-ambassador of this product and it has totally dominated the Indian Chocolate market. If you use to eat or bring Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Chocolates for your children then you must know the connection of it with petroleum. The relation is obviously due to the ingredients used in the production of the Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Chocolate that is extracted from the petroleum’s constituents.
