Spotted being loaded onto the Cadbury Secret Santa Express at the Secret Santa Depot, the secret deliveries of Cadbury chocolate bars are on track to reach loved ones near and far from today, with the train full steam ahead across the nation.


How to Take Part

To take part in a shared moment of warmth and generosity, festive fans and chocolate aficionados alike should look out for the Cadbury Secret Santa posters that will be appearing across the country, including bus stops, stations and shopping centres from now until 24th December. Making it easier than ever to gift chocolate in secret, more special digital posters will be appearing than ever before. Once tracked down, Secret Santas can scan a QR code to virtually meet Jeff, the Cadbury Secret Santa postman, and be taken on an interactive digital journey to help them choose a chocolate bar to gift to a loved one.


Each day of the campaign additional bars will be released to give as many people as possible the chance to send a bar of chocolate in secret to someone special because there's no more selfless act of generosity than giving someone a gift in secret!


Secret Santa’s can choose the recipient's favourite Cadbury chocolate with a range of bars offered via the free pop-up postal service including Vegan Plant bar and classic Cadbury Dairy Milk, Oreo, Wholenut, Fruit & Nut and Winter Wonderland bars.


The postal service is also unveiled alongside the brand’s Christmas advert, which stars the much-loved, cheeky Cadbury Secret Santa postman Jeff.
