Boost Bar wins gold from Olympic builders

28 Nov 12 The snack of choice for builders working on the construction of the Olympic Park and Village for the London 2012 Games was Cadbury’s Boost Bar.

New data from the company that supplied vending machines to the sites has revealed that the 46,000 construction workers got through 7,000 Boost Bars a month.

The next most popular snacks were Twirl, Whisper and Snack Shortcake.

The data was revealed by VendEase, which supplied 25 machines to the sites. Director Dave Berman said: “The Olympic Park Big Build was a military operation and we’re proud to have played our part in keeping that army of builders marching on its stomach.”

Editor's note: Cadbury has not paid us for this story but should they wish to show gratitude for the publicity, chocolate can be sent to: The Construction Index, Unit 1, Thorby Avenue, March, Cams PE15 0BD. Thanks :-)
