Experts fear the Kraft takeover of Cadbury in Britain could sound the death knell for local delicacies in favour of worldwide brands.

The Cadbury board accepted an $NZ26.6 billion takeover bid, creating the world's largest confectionery group.

"There is a very real danger that some of the brands will disappear," candy expert Tim Richardson told the Guardian newspaper.

He said that within five years, we could be looking at a Cadbury with fewer brands. For New Zealanders, that could mean an end to uniquely-Kiwi products such as Moro bars, Pebbles, Perky Nanas, Snowballs and Fruit Bursts.
