Welsh Chocolate Factory and Theme Park
Unveil Wonka-Inspired Golden Ticket Prize
A brand new family-run chocolate manufacturer, the Wickedly Welsh Chocolate Company, has joined forces with Oakwood Theme Park to target fun-seeking chocoholics.
The attractions are celebrating their new union by launching a thrilling new theme park inspired chocolate bar as well as a special Willy Wonka-style ‘Golden Ticket’ campaign, with lucky winners receiving VIP tickets for both attractions.
The ‘Golden Ticket’ campaign is set to drive fun-seeking chocoholics into a frenzy, as shelves are stocked with the elusive, ticket-laden bars.
The exclusive ‘Golden Tickets’ will be hidden in selected orange and popping candy flavoured bars.
The Haverfordwest chocolate-makers new initiative with Wales’ most popular theme park, will also see a range of products go on sale in the park’s on-site shops and cafes as well as across the region.
Oakwood Theme Park’s Clare Stansfield said: “We wanted a special flavour and taste combination that evoked the fun family experience of visiting the park.
“We decided to opt for a mix of classic flavours and hidden surprises – chocolate orange represents the classic rides like Megafobia, the Pirate Ship and Treetops while the sensation of the popping candy gives the magical feeling you get in our Peter Pan-themed Neverland attractions
“We’re delighted to be working with the Wickedly Welsh chocolate company. It’s great to be joining forces with a fantastic family-run local business, with such a fun, quirky image.
The Golden Ticket competition is a wonderful chance for lucky winners to enjoy a day to remember at both Oakwood and the Wickedly Welsh chocolate factory.” she added.
When a lucky winner finds a golden ticket inside their bar, they will win a VIP package to visit both Wickedly Welsh’s brand new chocolate factory and Wales’ biggest theme park Oakwood, home to the Neverland family attraction.
Mark Owen, Chief Taster and Chocaholic of Wickedly Welsh, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us and one we are extremely proud of as such a young company.
“The Golden Ticket competition is the first step in our partnership with Oakwood, and we have many more plans in the pipeline, so it’s a very exciting time for us.”
The chocolate bars will be available in various retail stores, as well as at in Wickedly Welsh Chocolate’s Experience Centre, based on the Withybush Industrial estate, Haverfordwest, and the shops at Oakwood Theme Park.
